Library of Orthopedic Protocols and Guidelines
Rehabilitation and recovery from the many different muskuloskeletal injuries that occur generally follow the same phases and stages regardless of the person who experiences the injury. Therefore, protocols have been developed that have a broad application to the many types of injuries. These protocols can be used as a guideline by the person recovering from the injury and the therapist helping with rehabilitation.
As there are a huge number of different injuries that can happen to the human body, there are also a huge number of protocols that have been developed. There is a site on the web that you can visit to find hundreds of these protocols. The site is called OrthopaedicProtocols.com and it is run by well known orthopedic physical therapist / physiotherapy Terry Kane.
The protocols and guidelines contained on this site were created by orthopedic specialists that are "some of the top Orthopaedic Surgeons and Physical Therapists in the world". The protocols cover a wide range of physical conditions and orthopedic surgical procedures.
