TRAUMA RECOVERY


FEATURE 19


The therapy team strive to help patients become independent as soon as possible


With the whole team onsite, therapists get daily handovers and have rapid access to expert advice if necessary. Inpatient rehabilitation can involve


simple exercises such as breathing and bed exercises if the patient is immobile, progressing to taking their first few steps. A patient is well enough for discharge once they are medically stable and able to do basic tasks such as get in and out of bed. Miss Roffi said: “Our therapists are


highly specialised with training in specific areas of rehabilitation. We have a specialist

hand physiotherapist, for example, who only sees patients with complex hand conditions or trauma including burns.”


CONTINUITY OF CARE After discharge, patients continue to be looked after by their consultant and medical team as outpatients and are seen in clinic as often as necessary to review their progress. Further treatment may include more


exercises in a gym to improve mobility, strength or flexibility, and practising functional tasks such as walking up and


down stairs. Other therapy can include hydrotherapy where patients undertake movements in a hydrotherapy pool while supported in water. “The therapies team can see patients


in their own home until they are able to attend clinic, the hydrotherapy pool or gym to ensure that individualised specialist care is provided at all stages,” added Miss Roffi. “It’s extremely rewarding being part of


this journey and seeing patients, some of whom had very serious injuries, regain control of their lives.” V
