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.

  1. I sustained TPF classification 6 January 2016 (Skiing) and have internal fixation. Physio ceased after 7 sessions but to be honest I did not find it very helpful anyway – they gave me exercises to practice on my own (which I scrupulously followed). The orthopaedic doctors signed me off as soon as the X-rays showed bones were healed – they don’t seem to care about regaining function as some of you all have said.
    Although I too have only reached 110degrees flexion and I still have a lot of muscle-wasting, walk with limp especially downhill/down steps or at speed etc I am still making gradual progress through self-directed hydrotherapy/swimming and with weekly help from a personal trainer ‘PT’ with sports injury special interest at the gym. Over time the swimming is helping with cardiac stamina and muscle strengthening. The gym sessions were initially purely deep muscle tissue massage (AGONISING, felt as if gouged by a soldering iron) to break down scar tissue and passive stretching to loosen tight muscles finishing with passive flexion of my joints . Nowadays the gym sessions are about 65% exercises. The goals are small and also the PT give feedback as to my progress which goes up and down a bit depending on whether I have been sitting or standing for long periods on previous days. Over past three months I have progressed from a quarter of a length of pool to 12 lengths of pool with rests.

    I do not feel I would have made the progress that I have without his support and the swimming. I have had to economise quite harshly to find the money to pay for the PT and get the annual membership for pool ( as can go as often as I wish and it doesn’t matter if only swim for 5 mins each time) but I think worth every penny.

    Please don’t give up, persevere. This injury has had a totally demoralising detrimental affect on my social life and doing the outdoor past-times that make me happy so it has been really hard losing the frequent contact of my ski & hiking buddies so I am having to find different ways to occupy myself. My goal is to be an observer on the waterskiing boat, to try snow-walking at the same ski resort one day, but in the meantime and trying other pursuits in hope of finding something else within my reach. Good luck

  2. In 1900, Muller proposed a classification system for tibial plateau fractures that categorized fractures according to the amount of articular involvement. Hohl and Luck proposed a classification of plateau fractures that included nondisplaced, local-depression, split-depression, and splitting fractures.

  4. I’m now 3.5 years out from a motorcycle accident with a tpf and foot drop induced at the hospital during immobilization. Just had the knee replaced as a final intervention. Lots of stiffness still, lots of pain when I push it, still can’t straighten the leg, and only 112 degrees of bend after lots of work. I continue to get better, but therapy and self hard work are the only ways to soldier on, it will take time, but I’m better now than I have been in 3.5 years, so don’t give up the ship. By the way, I’m 73 and still determined to beat this thing. Probably no more cycling in my future, maybe something safer,,,,skydiving??

  5. So I went to the er with a TP fracture on January 8th 2017. At this time I’m only able to bend it to about 30, and my leg is super weak… I have been doing the exercises and icing through out the day, does anyone have any suggestions that can help me….. I’m about ready to 😢….

    • I shattered mine 5 months ago, pretty traumatic explosion of bone. I still can’t put weight on it. I cry a lot. It will never be the same, but I’m still alive I guess 😊. No one I know can relate to this so I just exist with crutches for now. Your recovery will depend on the severity of your fracture. I get down a lot when I realize that my leg will never be the same, but I have some good friends and family that encourage me. I’m in physical therapy now, and can bend my leg about 115 degrees. I hope your recovery goes well. Acceptance is part of this thing, as shitty as it is. Good luck

      • Hi like you my tpf was shattered as though hit by a bomb,was told highly likely I’d lose my leg as most calf muscle had ripped off..was hit by a range rover on my motorbike. .and leg took full impact…but from nowhere my leg ballooned past 2 days …and don’t I’ve been looking for some reasons lol ..and dull the best I know how you feel

    • Hi Ila,
      I hear you! Your injury is still new! Are you in aftercare at all? Did you have surgery?My TPF happened July 2016 surgery Aug 2016. You need support for this it is a process and any orthopedic Dr.will surely know what you are going through. If still in pain if nothing else ,go back to the ER and get a referral to the best possible Orthopedic surgeon!

  6. Есть такая услуга – добровольное медицинское обслуживание (или ДМО).
    Она предполагает, что пациент платит небольшую сумму за то, что посещает врачей весь год БЕСПЛАТНО.
    Однако соцопросы показали, что лишь 4% жителей Санкт-Петербурга знают о такой услуге.
    Почему так происходит?
    Потому что клиникам выгоднее брать плату за каждый визит.
    А если какой-нибудь сотрудник клиники попытается посоветовать добровольное медицинское обслуживание клиенту – это сулит ему увольнением.
    Информация о ДМО уже спровоцировала много скандалов, сразу после того как информацию об этом рассекретил один врач.
    Его уволили “по собственному желанию”, после того, как он посоветовал ДМО постоянному клиенту.
    Самое ужасное, что информация по ДМО находятся в открытом доступе, просто находили на эту информацию единицы.
    Как отстоять свои права?
    О правилах предоставления услуги и обязанностях клиник можно узнать, сделав запрос в Яндексе: “добровольное медицинское обслуживание”.
    Именно обслуживание, а не страхование.
