Physiotherapy for clients with fractures (orthopedic)

Recover From a Fracture Without Surgery Through Our Professional Physio Service in Toronto

Fractures are common injuries that occur when a bone in your body can’t handle the pressure put on it, so it breaks, either partially or fully. There’s a common misconception that anyone who has a fracture must have surgery; this isn’t always the case. Some minor fractures can heal with the help of a strong physiotherapy plan.


You should never sit around and think an injury as serious as a fracture will heal on its own. Having the assistance and knowledge of a certified physiotherapist is the best way to manage the pain that comes with a fracture and rehabilitate fully so you can stand strong again!


Get Right Physio is the leading physical therapy provider for fractures in the Greater Toronto Area. Our therapists will put you through the most effective recovery treatments, including soft tissue release, bracing and taping, and much more. It won’t be long until you’re back in top form.

The Difference Between Displaced Fractures and Non-displaced Fractures

There are two terms to describe the type of fracture someone has displaced fractures and non-displaced fractures.


Displaced fractures are when a certain part of the bone snaps out of place, putting off the alignment between the broken ends. A fracture like this has the potential to be extremely painful and may tear through the skin. These types of fractures are much more likely to send someone to the hospital for surgery.

Non-displaced fractures are the less serious injury of the two because the bone doesn’t fully break; it only cracks in a certain place, either on the side or in line with the long axis of the bone. Surgery for a non-displaced fracture isn’t always required; sometimes, the assistance of a great physio company like Get Right Physio is good enough.

Where Do Fractures Occur?

Fractures can happen in many areas of the body, including your hands, ankles, wrists and hips. It’s important to seek the help of a professional physiotherapist if you think you might have suffered a fracture so you don’t cause the injury further wear and tear.

How Physiotherapy Can Help Manage the Pain of a Fracture

With an effective physiotherapy strategy, you can reduce the excruciating pain that a fracture brings and restore your previous movements in the injured area.


If your doctor feels that you only need to follow a physio plan to recover from a fracture or you need to manage the discomfort of the injury until your surgery appointment, we’re here to help you.


You can book your initial assessment with a member of our physio team, who will put you through a musculoskeletal exam to see how bad the damage is and determine the best approach to help you recover. If we think the damage requires surgery, we’ll recommend you go see a doctor and come back to see them after it’s complete. We can also provide you with a brief treatment plan before you get your surgery if you need one.


However, if we believe you can rehabilitate without surgery, we’ll design a customized rehab plan with a list of exercises you can do in your house or condo, hospital, long-term care facility or retirement home.

What Physio Exercises Will Help You Recover From a Fracture?

Your physiotherapist will tailor your physio recovery plan based on the fracture you’ve suffered. Below, you can see some common exercises that are included in rehab regimens.


  • Soft tissue mobilization to reduce swelling
  • Low-impact exercises like cycling or swimming
  • Flexibility exercises to regain your joint’s range of movement
  • Lifting exercises to build strength

What Are the Symptoms of a Fracture?

If you’ve suffered a fracture, you may experience the following symptoms in the injured area:

  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Broken skin with a bone sticking out
  • Inability to move that part of your body

Frequently Asked Questions

On average, fractures can take between 6 to 8 weeks to heal with physio. However, some factors can slow down the healing, including a poor diet, smoking, or an underlying condition the client may have.


Your physiotherapist may recommend you begin eating a healthy diet and increase your vitamin D intake to speed up the process, although some clients will still need a therapist’s help after 8 weeks.

It’s completely normal for someone to still be in pain after they’ve healed from a fracture; that’s why booking regular sessions with a physiotherapist is essential, so they can monitor every step of your rehabilitation.


Some bones can take up 18 months to completely remodel, so they need to be managed with the utmost care up until the fracture has fully healed.

Yes, physiotherapy can help prevent future fractures for our clients. Our physio services will assist you in regaining full strength and mobility in the damaged area so you don’t have to worry about the same injury happening over and over again.


Please note that no recovery through physiotherapy should be rushed, or you run the risk of the injury not rehabilitating properly, increasing the chances of the fracture reoccurring.

Let Us Be There for You and Provide Physio Assistance as You Heal From Your Fracture

Getting surgery for a fracture should be your last resort unless you’ve been told to by your doctor. Physio helps the body heal naturally and assists in managing the pain associated with a fracture, whereas, with surgery, there’s more of a chance of facing further complications down the line.

    Thanks you to Get Right Physio and especially Sabrina for getting my 90 year old mother back on her feet after hip replacement surgery. I was very pleased with the company’s professional expertise and for sending us the right therapist for my mother. Sabrina was very kind, knowledgeable and understanding. I would not hesitate to use the company again.

    Claudia and her team were instrumental in rehabilitating my mom after her stroke. Claudia is a true professional with a wealth of knowledge but she also has a genuine kindness that instantly put my mom at ease. Claudia has a personalized approach, she took the time to understand not just the physical aspects of my mom's condition but also her unique needs and goals. Claudia communicates clearly and prioritized my mom's safety and wellbeing. Her home exercises and practical tips helped to integrate rehabilitation seamlessly into our daily lives. My family and I are grateful for Claudia's hard work with my mom.
