Any kind of severe head injury may cause a host of physical problems that extend far beyond the fractured skull itself. Even a relatively small skull fracture can result in long term problems that affect different parts of the body, causing problems with balance, coordination and even the patient’s ability to perform everyday functions. A fractured skull is a very serious injury, and requires urgent medical treatment together with long term follow up, and this is where a course of rehabilitation physiotherapy could really be beneficial.

What Are The Aims Of Physiotherapy For A Fractured Skull?
A fractured skull can sometimes cause no long term problems and will heal on its own with little medical intervention. However, in many cases, even a small fracture can cause further, more complex problems. As the skull protects the brain, any kind of break in the bone can lead to the brain itself being affected and this can result in problems with balance, movement and coordination. Physiotherapy exercises can help to correct these problems. It can assist with the following:
- Helping to improve the patient’s balance when sitting, standing and walking
- Helping to improve the patient’s ability to move in a coordinated way
- Maximising the patient’s physical abilities and functions
- Helping to restore the patient’s ability to complete everyday tasks

Fractured Skull Rehab Timeline
Although most skull fractures will eventually heal on their own, the process can take many months. Although the patient often experiences no pain after the first couple of weeks, for the bone to fully heal can take a very long time, and even after healing has occurred there can be other long term complications involving other areas of the body.
