Welcome

Welcome to the TPF Home Page.

This page has many useful sections with information, and fellow Tibial Plateau Fracture sufferer stories.

If you’ve recently suffered a Tibial plateau Fracture this is the place for you. This site was created after having myself gone through the recovery process of Tibial Plateau Fractures, and this site aims to contain information you need and want to know during Recovery. You can visit the forum to chat and share your story with others. Or, start reading in the Recovery Section Above. In the different pages you will find a lot of helpful information for your recovery period including medical information, first hand accounts of personal recovery stories as well as many useful tips & tricks. It’s Important to understand that this info is based on personal experience and research but that I am not a medical professional. This site is not intended to provide personal health advice. Your doctor is the professional source of information and if any advice your doctor gives you contradicts something written in this site- stick with your doctors opinion.

If you’re asking yourself how long your recovery is going to take, or what to expect, check out the recovery section. If you’re looking for some helpful tips and tricks from people who’ve been there – have a look at tips & tricks. We also have a Forum with recovery stories of different people Containing many inspiring stories and a place to ask fellow visitors questions.

If you’re looking for a community of people who have been through the same also check out the forum, or if you are looking for more information and references, those can be found in “further reading” which contains links to other websites and pages.

This page currently contains mostly information regarding recovery and recuperation after a surgery or non-surgical treatment. If you are still in the hospital and want to know more about your injury this is also the place for you. In future I might add some useful information for your stay in the hospital.

Hope you feel at Home, and feel free to contact about anything at all at [email protected]

  1. Hi. I suffered a type 2 tibial plateau fracture whilst skiing on 11th January. First and last time skiing I think! I had a bone graft, plate and 6 screws on 16th January and will be NWB for another 3 weeks. How long realistically will it be till I can run again (was meant to be. Running the London marathon!)? I work in a hospital and I’m on my feet all the time. How long in people’s experience will I be off work. I have my first physic session tomorrow, so at least I’ll feel like I’m doing something towards my recovery.

  2. Hi Susan. Thank you for that information. I do want to heal as quickly and as healthy as possible. I was able to find some exercises that I can start on while I wait for my next appointment.

  3. Please seek out Tibial Plateau Fracture Recovery group on Facebook. Lots of good info. Bestt wishes in your recovery. And remember, this is NOT your forever. Xx

  4. Does anyone have any video links to start physical therapy . I’m 4 1/2 weeks post op. I’ve been reading about scar tissue building up, causing limited Range of Motion. I’m having a hard time getting my doctors to refer me to pt. Please help . Thank you. If no video, I hope there are exercises I can follow somewhere.

    • Yes, please see the facebook page referenced above…they have lots of PT exercises you can access. If not that, then google the injury/PT exercises. Failing that, get into a pool and do a lot of swimming, or any other sport that you used to do…anything you do everyday will help…like Yoga for instance. I did PT and it didn’t help that much. The best you can do is to push it every day, and do some exercise that uses ALL your muscles…like walking. Keep it up and you will see gradual results. Nothing is fast with this injury. Good luck!
