Our intervention and services extends across the health spectrum - from prevention to post-illness intervention, and reintegration into the society after illness or injury.
Musculoskeletal & Orthopaedic Physiotherapy
Musculoskeletal physiotherapy focuses on alleviating pain and enhancing strength and function in patients with musculoskeletal and sports conditions. This is achieved through therapeutic exercise, education, manual therapy, and various electrotherapy modalities. Common conditions addressed by musculoskeletal physiotherapy include low back pain, arthritis, joint sprains, and subacute post-surgical conditions.
Orthopaedic physiotherapy is dedicated to the acute post-surgical care of patients who have undergone orthopaedic surgery, ensuring their full recovery. Conditions commonly treated by orthopaedic physiotherapists include fractures, knee ligament reconstructions, and total knee or hip replacement surgeries.
Accident & Emergency Physiotherapy
This team of physiotherapists is specialised in attending to patients with acute medical conditions in the emergency department, offering pain relief and advice. The A&E physiotherapist commonly addresses conditions such as:
- Non-traumatic acute low back or neck pain
- Minor fractures requiring conservative management
- Ankle sprains or strains
- Elderly patients with a history of falls and minor injuries
- Vestibular problems (e.g., Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo)
Cardio Pulmonary Physiotherapy
Cardiopulmonary physiotherapy is a specialised field focusing on the care of patients with heart and lung diseases and injuries. This includes assisting patients experiencing breathing difficulties. Treatment involves providing advice and education on various breathing techniques, as well as guidance and support for coughing and clearing chest secretions. Cardiopulmonary physiotherapists engage in patient rehabilitation through the prescription of therapeutic exercises and the application of breathing and secretion clearance techniques to optimize heart and lung function.
Common conditions addressed by cardiopulmonary physiotherapists includes heart attacks, post-surgical care for heart, lung, and abdomen, and diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma. Physiotherapists in this field also work in intensive care units where they care for critically ill patients. They also work in outpatient clinics where they provide treatment for cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation.
Geriatric physiotherapists specialise in working with elderly patients, addressing conditions that are unique to this age group, including poor balance and falls, dementia, and a decline in physical strength. Their focus involves rehabilitating geriatric patients through therapeutic exercises and gait and balance re-training to enhance and optimize their overall function.
Neurological physiotherapists assist patients with neurological conditions like stroke, Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injuries. The goal is to restore functional independence by re-training gait and movement, providing sensory stimulation, enhancing coordination, proprioception, and strength through targeted training, ultimately optimising functional recovery.
