Exercises: Physical Therapy

The appropriate range of motion exercises depend tremendously on the part injured, the nature of the injury, how well healed the fracture is etc. So , no, I don't feel comfortable making a general comment which might be taken specifically. Physiotherapists are highly skilled professionals and I defer to their expertise. The patient, the PT and I agree on the diagnosis, the situation and the goals, then I let them go to it. I will collect exercise descriptions that have been sent in by broken leggers and post them here

Dr. Clough, do you feel comfortable about commenting on rom exercises for those poor people who don't get a pt referral? This has come up several times and several of us have offered information on the exercises we have been given. I think this would be helpful but if you aren't comfortable with that, perhaps a licensed pt (I have a good one) could give us some advice.
