    Scaphoid Pseudarthrosis - physio

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Hello! I'm Phillipp and I'm 16 years old.

    I was submitted to scaphoid surgery at 3rd January (this year). It was used a Herbert's Screw and no graft. It's almost healed, its been two months and I'm (probably) taking my cast out in the 4th March.
    I was wondering, how much time of physio can I expect, considering my age, and how much time will it take for me to get back to Judo practice.

    Thanks and sorry for my English,
    Flooper

    Probably 2-3 weeks of physio would do.

    Hi Phillipp, although you cast will be coming off after two months, the bone will still be healing [bone remodelling/ strengthening] for at least one year. During the first year the risk of re-injury is high; particularly, since you mentioned Judo practice. Please do not return to Judo, or any activities that could involve full wrist extension, flexion, or punching activities with an open or closed fist; for a full year. Let your scaphoid heal properly with lighter exercises as directed your physiotherapist or hand specialist, during the first year. If you re-fracture your scaphoid, then subsequent scaphoid reconstruction is usually less successful; and resultant surgery would most likely involve partial wrist fusion. All the best with you recovery.
    Phil
