Effectiveness of the Graded Motor Imagery to Improve Hand Function in Patients with Distal Radius Fracture: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2018)

January 17, 2022 by txinsights.
Distal radius fractures (DRFx) are one of the most common types of fractures. Rehabilitation for DRFx may be complicated due to challenges associated with recovery times, discomfort, pain, and decreased mobility. The pain intensity score during the acute stage postinjury has been shown to determine the patient’s profile for rehabilitation and recovery. Therefore, pain control […]

Effectiveness of the Graded Motor Imagery to Improve Hand Function in Patients with Distal Radius Fracture: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2018)

January 16, 2022 by txinsights.
Neuro Rehabilitation from a DRFx can be complicated by prolonged recovery time, pain, and decreased mobility. Pain is one of the major risk factors inhibiting recovery. In severe cases, patients can develop complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS), a chronic pain condition. Therefore, pain management is essential in the early stages of the rehabilitation of DRFx. […]
