Proper rehabilitation is of the utmost importance to the success of the treatment. Care should be aimed to protect the joint surface while the cartilage heals and it should be customized in terms of intensity and difficulty, according to individual clinical conditions.
Prof. Barbara Wondrasch (view her C.V. here) has collaborated with Anika to produce a comprehensive rehabilitation protocol.
This is presented in three different manuals: one for the surgeon, one for the physiotherapist and one for the patient.
The manuals are intended as a guide, because in clinical practice, rehabilitation will be customized to each individual patients’ characteristics.
