TREAT & SUPPORT
Your physiotherapist will converse with you throughout the treatment sessions to gauge how well you are healing. It also helps in providing evidence-based treatment and recommending appropriate home exercises that integrate seamlessly into daily activities so that you will recover in a shorter timeframe. Our physiotherapists are also a source of guidance for the patient’s family members through the teaching of massage techniques, emotional support, and their readiness to address related queries.
Our experienced physiotherapists will go through a step-by-step process to help you overcome a range of debilitating physical conditions to improve fitness and stamina, and more importantly, affirm the therapy’s constructive effects through constant reassurance and support.
OUR TREATMENT SOLUTIONS
Pre-surgery rehabilitation entails conditioning muscles to better base strength to help with post-operation recovery while physiotherapy for post-surgery rehabilitation helps with muscle and kinetic chain retraining. Overall, these forms of rehabilitation reduce the risk of re-injury and extends the lifespan of the implants, enhancing the performance of the surgery. Physio+ specialises in post-surgery rehabilitation for spinal operations; coupled with manual therapy and electrotherapy, recovering patients experience a more holistic recovery process.
EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY (ESWT)
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive technology that uses sound waves to help in promoting neovascularization at the tendon – bone junction, and also to stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue remodelling. This is essential in the recovery process as it accelerates the healing process. It has been used to treat common musculoskeletal conditions such as tennis elbows and plantar fasciitis.
Dry needling involves using a thin microfilament needle to penetrate the skin, usually into muscle trigger points. The needle is of single-use and comes packaged in individual sterile packaging and it has to be administered by a certified physiotherapist.
Dry needling is different from TCM acupuncture whereby the latter is focus on targeting the meridian points throughout the body while the former is based on, targeting mainly muscles and connective tissues. However, both may use the same microfilament needles.
The purpose of dry needling is to alleviate pain and restore movement impairments. Introducing the needle into a trigger point relieves tightness and introduces blood flow to that muscle, which helps reduce pain. It is highly effective in treating neck, shoulder, back and hip pain.
This uses TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) and Therapeutic Ultrasound to achieve muscle activation, pain relief and tissue healing.
This involves soft and deep tissue massage, as well as joint manipulation, to aid in realignment of bone joints and to reduce tension in stiffened muscles. Releasing the correct muscles and stiff joints that contribute to the pain/problem makes it easier to align the body to a neutral position, allowing optimal function of the muscles and joints. In this way, we are able to bring about a pain-free outcome and reduce the risks of re-injury.
Often used to treat those with musculoskeletal injuries, clinical Pilates strengthens the core muscles, alleviates different kinds of musculoskeletal pains and improves one’s posture.
