muscular efforts required to perform the job!
Most Preferred Zone of Work: A
Hand-Care in Post-Traumatic Stiffness
Scenario 3
Punita V. Solanki. www.orthorehab.in Inform, Inspire, Influence
Hand Care
Messages: Stiff hand
⎈ Be gentle to stretch, be caring to support, be perseverant to get back
to normalcy, you are dealing with a human hand and not an object!
⎈ Aim to march forward, one little step ahead - is the key to true
rehabilitation. Remember! Haste and undue force are unproductive - a
loss of effort! Leaving a discouraged therapist and a distressed patient!
⎈ Work the hardest and most sincerely in the initial and intermediate
recovery period or else you will lose the golden opportunity to recover
the best and fastest!
⎈ Always work under the supervision of an expert hand therapist!
Scientific Reasoning: In the initial recovery period joints are supple
and joint ligaments are in optimal length in functional position

thus wear and tear, and arthritic changes of hip and knee joints.
Inform, Inspire, InfluencePunita V. Solanki. www.orthorehab.in
Hip and Knee Care
Message: Avoid walking and exercising on hard ground surfaces.
Scientific Reasoning: Minimizes ground reaction forces as offered on
hard ground surfaces. Best surfaces to walk and exercise are grass, wet
sand and soft-firm playground, which offers equal and opposite ground
reaction forces to joint reaction forces, thus preventing wear and tear
and arthritic changes!
Inform, Inspire, InfluencePunita V. Solanki. www.orthorehab.in
Hip and Knee Care
Message: Maintain optimal and functional postures of legs whilst
sitting, standing, walking, running etc.

surgeon for optimal guidance.
⎈ Take optimal care of child’s feet as advised by the pediatric physician
and orthopedic surgeon, from birth to growth spurt/adolescence.

the best, if required, in the early phase of life.
Inform, Inspire, InfluencePunita V. Solanki. www.orthorehab.in
Ankle and Foot Care
Messages:

techniques, optimal environment, and best foot wear or sports specific
shoes.
⎈ Consult ankle and foot specialist physician, orthopedic surgeon,
podiatrist, physical and occupational therapist, coach and fitness expert
for the best care and information.
Scientific Reasoning: Primary prevention works the best when the feet
are normal and functional. Prevention of injuries is better than care.
Aids in maintaining sports specific goals life long.
