OUR PROGRAMS

ORTHOPEDIC REHABILITATION PROGRAM


At Dar El Mona Medical and Rehabilitation we’re committed to helping individuals who are experiencing a range of orthopedic difficulties, from minor lower back pain to the effects of major orthopedic surgery.

Our approach at Dar El Mona goes beyond addressing pain. Our physical and occupational therapists facilitate lifestyle changes to enhance health and ability, empower patients to overcome physical limitations while reducing healing time of injury, and restoring independence. We strive to optimize function as effectively as possible and to promote return to an active lifestyle, whether it is competitive athletics, work, hobbies, or simply pain-free living.

Dar El Mona Orthopedic Rehabilitation Program is addressed with a holistic approach that constitutes of developing a customized and integrated treatment plan for every patient.

Our experts provide the entire spectrum of treatment, from inpatient post-operative surgery to outpatient procedures, and physical and occupational therapy. Our program brings together the region’s foremost rehabilitation physicians, nurses, therapists, and other clinicians to offer adults and children superior rehabilitation care.

We treat conditions including:

  • Post Fractures
  • Back problems
  • Post hand surgeries
  • Rotator cuff tear (post-operative/non-operative)
  • Shoulder Impingement Rehabilitation
  • Sprain/strain (conservative or post-operative)
  • Tendinitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Patellofemoral Syndrome
  • Post amputation
  • Posture Deformities
  • Post Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and meniscus surgeries
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Joints arthritis (as knee, hip, shoulder…)
Post Fractures

Post fractures rehabilitation after serious injuries can leave an individual with a serious loss in function. Depending on the type and location of the fracture, the individual may require surgery to restore normal bone alignment to allow the bone to heal or a simple sling to support the injured limb. A proper rehabilitation program following a fracture is imperative.

Our physiotherapists are qualified at post-fracture rehabilitation to restore pre-injury function as fast as possible.

Program of treatment:

  • Faradic stimulation
  • TENS application
  • Ultrasound
  • Hot packs
  • LASER therapy
  • ROM exercise
  • Strengthening exercise
  • Stretching exercise
  • Proprioceptive exercise
  • CPM (continuous passive movement)

Faradic stimulation

Faradic stimulation is given for muscle paresis conditions. In muscle paresis, there is partial nerve supply to the muscle. It is also called as partially innervated muscle.

Back problems

Pain in the lower back may be linked to the bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, lower back muscles, abdomen and pelvic internal organs, and the skin around the lumbar area.

Common forms of physical therapy include:

  • Faradic stimulation

Used to improve power of weak muscles

  • TENS application

Used For pain relief by causing a mild electrical stimulation to the neural system that enhances production of beta endorphin and encephalin (pain killer).

  • Ultrasound

Used for pain relief by allowing a micro message effect and vasodilatation of the blood vessels

  • Laser therapy

Used for pain relief through acceleration of the inflammatory phase of the healing process, stimulating B endorphin secretion which is associated with inhibiting synthesis of prostaglandin, decreasing the conduction velocity  of the sensory nerve and stimulating the gate control to inhibit pain pathway.

  • Electromagnetic field

Used to decrease pain and inflammation

  • Hot / cold application for pain relief
  • Lumbar traction

Used for pain relief.

  • Myofascial release

Used to decrease muscle spasm and improve body fascia

  • Strengthening exercise

Rotator cuff tear (post-operative/non-operative)

A rotator cuff tear is a tear of one or more of the tendons of the four rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder. A rotator cuff ‘injury’ can include any type of irritation or overuse of those muscles or tendons, and is among the most common conditions affecting the shoulder.

Program of treatment:

Faradic stimulation

To improve power of weak muscles

TENS Application

For pain relief by causing a mild electrical stimulation to the neural system that enhances production of beta endorphin and encephalin (pain killer).

Ultrasound

Allows pain relief by increasing extensibility of tendon, allowing micro message effect and vasodilatation of the blood vessels.

Shoulder Impingement Rehabilitation

“Neutral position” of the back, shoulders, and spine should be maintained during standing, sitting, and lifting activities.

Shoulder impingement syndrome occurs as the result of chronic and repetitive compression or “impingement” of the rotator-cuff tendons in the shoulder, causing pain and movement problems.

It can also be caused by an injury to the shoulder to people who perform repetitive or overhead arm movements, such as manual laborers or athletes who raise their arms repeatedly overhead (i.e. weightlifters and baseball pitchers.

Sprain/strain (conservative or post-operative)

Sprains and strains are common injuries that share similar signs and symptoms, but involve different parts of your body.

A sprain is a stretching or tearing of ligaments — the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together in your joints. The most common location for a sprain is in your ankle.

A strain is a stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. Strains often occur in the lower back and in the hamstring muscle in the back of your thigh.

Tennis elbow

Tennis elbow is a type of tendinitis — swelling of the tendons — that causes pain in the elbow and arm. These tendons are bands of tough tissue that connect the muscles of your lower arm to the bone. Despite its name, you can still get tennis elbow even if you’ve never been near a tennis court. Instead, any repetitive gripping activities, especially if they use the thumb and first two fingers, may contribute to tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is the most common reason that people see their doctors for elbow pain. It can pop up in people of any age, but it’s most common at about age 40.

Post Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and meniscus surgeries

The primary goals in the treatment of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture are restoration of function in the short term and the prevention of long-term pathologic changes in the knee. Non-operative treatment is a reasonable approach in patients who are not athletically active.

The key to successful treatment of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is proper and early rehabilitation. Preoperative and postoperative rehabilitation programs are similar initially. Swelling control and restoration of motion and strength are the goals of each.

The postoperative rehabilitation program begins as soon as the patient awakens from anesthesia, especially because patients are discharged earlier now than they were in previous years.

Joints arthritis (as knee, hip, shoulder…)

Arthritis is very common but is not well understood. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease; it is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. People of all ages, sexes and races can and do have arthritis, and it is the leading cause of disability in America. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some type of arthritis. It is most common among women and occurs more frequently as people get older.
