#90: Ankle fracture rehab – what is missing?

Jan 27, 2021 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

As health care providers and rehab professionals, there is the story that ankle fracture rehab is simple. Makes sense right? A regional intervention over an obvious acute traumatic event. But what is missing and why do so many individuals recovering from this injury (post-surgical) are having difficulty months and years down the road? Join us as we explore the Biopsychosocial approach to this individual who felt her rehab care was dismissive to her real fears and complaints. How to navigate the waters when peripheral symptoms migrate to central sensitization. Of special interest here is where the secondary driver actually becomes the primary driver!

    Great episode! I think we encounter central sensitization often in our complex presentations. What was the motor imagery app you had this client work with?

      Hi Jeanette,
      Apologies for not responding sooner! This ended up in a different inbox! I use GMI -there is not a specific app for that, although there is an app for Left/Right discrimination designed by the NOI group, which is a part of the GMI protocol.
