Abstract

This chapter focuses on physiotherapy management of vascular disorders. This chapter covers the physiotherapy management for acute arterial disorders, physiotherapy management for chronic arterial disorders, exercise prescription in peripheral arterial disorders, care of anesthetic foot and hand, prevention of vascular diseases, physiotherapy treatment in acute venous disorders, physiotherapy management of chronic venous disorders (chronic venous insufficiency and varicose vein), vascular rehabilitation, physiotherapy management of lymphedema, combined physical decongestive therapy, compression therapy, pneumatic compression treatment, manual lymphatic drainage, simple lymphatic drainage, and prevention of lymphedema. In acute arterial disorders usually immediate medical attention is required followed by surgical intervention. Commonly surgeries performed for these disorders include thrombectomy, bypass graft, embolectomy, endarterectomy. To achieve a healthy, clean, well-moisturized and intact skin, skin care is most important in the management of vascular diseases. Vascular rehabilitation is a noninvasive exercise program that improves maximal walking distance in patients with claudication, pain in the legs with activity that subsides with rest.
