Complex Polytrauma

The Rehab Physio’s intensive treatment programmes can be particularly beneficial for patients who approach us with complex injuries and polytrauma.

Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists are adept at using their skills and experience to analyse movement to create tailored programmes of treatment, typically combining elements such as exercise, strength and conditioning and hands-on therapy to help get patients moving and mobile again.

What is Polytrauma?

Polytrauma usually refers to severely injured patients with two or more significant traumatic injuries. A common example would be someone who has multiple fractures due to a car or work place accident.  In addition to musculoskeletal injury, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is generally seen as the most common element of polytrauma.

Treatment

We help many patients after their operations, including those who find their mobility and movement failing after complex or unsuccessful surgical treatment. We work with patients whose post-operative care and rehab has been lacking to some degree. They often come to us with movement issues, weakened muscles, and problems just performing everyday ordinary tasks.
