Fractured tibia or fibula

Fractures of tibia and fibula are the most frequent fractures, they can be associated (both) or isolated.

According to the fracture site can be distinguished three different districts: the proximal third (articular fractures), middle third (metadiaphyseal), distal third (articular fractures); this distinction is important both from the point of view of rehabilitation and from a prognostic point of view. In addition, patients can be treated surgically (osteosynthesis, application of plates and screws) or simply immobilized with plaster cast; everything must be taken into account in drawing up the rehabilitation program.

The rehabilitation process includes a first phase of pain control and recovery of active and passive range of motion of the hip, knee and ankle, accompanied by a mild muscle strengthening. Achieved the goal you can start aerobic activity and the phase of the strength recovery with exercises for the gastrocnemius, tibialis anterior and posterior, soleus, flexors and extensors and intrinsic foot, quadriceps, gluteus and flexor muscles of the core; at the same time you will begin proprioceptive exercises and equilibrium increasingly complex.

The key issue is to conclude the rehabilitation program with the last phase of the field with a specific sport gait exercises and a gradual and safe recovery of movement and sporting gesture.
