Rehabilitation following fracture repair is important to return animals to full function. As important, is knowing when to restrict activity or increase activity based on the stage of fracture healing and the stability of the repair. Fractures in and around joints are especially important for rehabilitation to help prevent joint stiffness and decreased function. In addition, fractures that are managed with casts or splints will have some stiffness of joints and muscle atrophy. Recognizing these issues and addressing them with rehabilitation are important to return to function.
