Fracture

If you have suffered a fracture, the first step towards rehabilitation is to visit PALLADION. Anything that has to do with your body is important to us. A fracture is not simply a breakage. It may become highly unpleasant, cause effects, or have root causes. We are waiting for you to explore all the above together and to help you leave this problem behind.

In preparing a personalised rehabilitation we consider the following:

  • The patient’s history
  • Their lifestyle and daily living needs
  • Their psychological state

  • Any form of special conditions that may arise during or after the treatment and this is always a key point for the rehabilitation team of PALLADION

The PALLADION team is, right from the start, an ally for the person who has suffered a fracture, while aiming at improving their functionality.

Rehabilitation:

All therapeutic treatments performed by the interdisciplinary rehabilitation team, to allow patients to regain maximum functioning and autonomy and return to their family, social and working environment.

6 questions about fractures

01

What is a fracture?

Fracture is the so-called break of a bone or cartilage. It is usually caused by an accident (serious incidents, such as a road accident, as well as simpler ones, such as a fall), but a fracture may also be caused by a disease of the bones.

02

How do we know that we have suffered a fracture?

After an injury, we may feel very strong pain in a part of our body. We must visit a doctor to verify whether the pain is caused by a fracture. We must not neglect that, since the bones must be aligned correctly to heal properly.

03

What diseases can cause a fracture?

Bone diseases that can cause a fracture include osteoporosis (as it makes bones more brittle) and osteogenesis imperfecta (a rare genetic disorder which causes frequent bone fractures), as well as various neoplastic diseases, and other factors.

04

How can the patient assist in the healing of bone fracture?

The best thing the patient can do is rest. It is necessary to avoid burdening the fractured point. So, the patient must avoid sudden and compounding moves, as well as physical exercise, especially at the point of the fracture. Seeing a doctor is indispensable.

05

How long does it take for a fracture to heal?

The treatment differs depending on the type of the fracture. The time needed for a fracture to heal differs depending on its type, the point of the fracture, as well as the patient’s condition. In any event, the healing process can take up to a few weeks or months. Following medical advice will help a broken bone to heal faster and a patient to address its symptoms, such as acute pain.

06

What cutting-edge medical practices are implemented at PALLADION for patient rehabilitation following a fracture?

We, at PALLADION, know that our programme must have two objectives: continuous monitoring to deal with the symptoms (such as pain, walking difficulty and functional problems in general, avoiding potential effects of a fracture that could harm the organism, etc.) and full rehabilitation. To restore the patient’s previous functional state, we must provide premium care, based on collaboration between the doctor, the rehabilitation team and the patient.
