Last week I had a few patients who have had recent fractures in the early part of the New Year and given a rehabilitation program which would normally be reviewed and updated every few weeks. Obviously because of the current situation this can’t be done so they are then trying to put them into practice themselves.
They were given enough exercises to cover them until the expected time of full recovery, which although in practice seemed reasonable it has left the patient anxious that their timing of progression is either too slow or too fast.
They have approached me and even though initially apprehensive they have found that doing video sessions on Zoom or Whats App was ” More helpful than you can possibly appreciate.”
So we are able to and give guidance where necessary.
