Treat & Support

After being greeted with our warm smiles, your physiotherapist will spend time finding out what you hope to achieve out of the physiotherapy sessions. Together, we will review your X-ray/MRI films and answer any queries you might have, even those regarding surgery. Our therapist will explain everything you want to know using terms that you’ll understand. Be it the rehabilitation process, assessment requirements, or recovery timeline, we will do our utmost to explain your treatment and progress.

Through a variety of manual techniques and diagnostic tests, your physiotherapist will assess your condition not only at your initial consultation, but at every consultation. He or she will converse with you throughout the treatment sessions to gauge how well you are healing. This approach also helps in providing evidence-based assessment and on-going review of your condition.

Your physiotherapist will complement your therapy sessions with suggestions of home exercises and useful ergonomic tips that you can integrate seamlessly into your daily activities so that you will recover in a shorter timeframe. Our physiotherapists also provide guidance for the patient’s family members through the teaching of massage techniques, emotional support, and their readiness to address queries about the patient’s ongoing recovery and progress.

OUR TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

Our range of treatment solutions are specially curated and individualised for each of our patients, ensuring a personalised recovery plan that will expedite healing and enhance muscle strength, mobility, fitness, and stamina.

Pre/Post-Surgery Rehabilitation

Pre-surgery rehabilitation entails conditioning muscles to improve strength to help with post-operative recovery while physiotherapy for post-surgery rehabilitation helps with muscle and functional training. Such rehabilitation programmes comprise physiotherapy exercises coupled with manual therapy and appropriate electrotherapy to help enhance and accelerate the recovery process for patients.


Overall, these forms of rehabilitation help restore strength and mobility as well as improve the flexibility and function of the affected joint or muscle, and therefore shortening recovery time. Such rehabilitation also reduces surgery complication as well as the risk of re-injury and, enhancing the desired outcomes of the surgery. Physio+ specialises in post-surgery rehabilitation with demonstrated experience in rehabilitating patients undergoing surgeries such as spine, shoulder, ankle, wrist, knee surgery, ACL as well as hip replacement.

Manual Therapy

At Physio+, we use manual therapy as a regular part of patient treatment. Beyond the more common characterisation of this “hands-on” therapy as soft and deep tissue massage, manual therapy is also a means of assessment and evaluation of the patient’s condition, enabling the physiotherapist to identify pain patterns and trigger points through the sense of touch. Manual therapy encompasses a range of techniques that include muscle release and joint manipulation that aim to enhance joint mobility, realign bone joints, and alleviate tension in stiffened muscles.


The tactile aspect of manual therapy additionally offers patients reassurance, particularly in dealing with pain. By strategically relaxing and releasing targeted muscles and stiff joints that are contributing to pain or dysfunction, manual therapy aligns the body to a neutral position, optimising the function of muscles and joints. This approach promotes tissue healing, reduces pain, and mitigates the risk of re-injury.

Clinical Pilates

At Physio+, clinical Pilates sessions are meticulously tailored to cater to the individualised needs of our patients with specific physical health conditions or injuries. Utilising state-of the-art Pilates reformer machines, these sessions are used to help patients with musculoskeletal injuries safely strengthen different muscles such as the core muscles, as well as to alleviate different kinds of musculoskeletal pain and improve posture.


Unlike regular Pilates Classes, which are often geared towards general fitness, our Clinical Pilates sessions are individualised to address specific patient needs. Conducted under the supervision of trained physiotherapists, these sessions involve a deeper understanding of the patient's medical history, current health status, and existing musculoskeletal conditions and are integrated as part of a broader physiotherapy programme designed to help patients recover, heal and strengthen.

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing of injured tissue. At Physio+, our trained physiotherapists use ESWT to offer a safe, non-surgical alternative to the treatment of a variety of conditions such as tendonitis, tennis/golfer’s elbow, and plantar fasciitis.


During the session, our physiotherapist will use a device that will direct shockwaves at the affected area to promote blood flow and tissue regeneration. ESWT is like a deep massage for your cells, encouraging them to repair and heal naturally. It is used to target pain and muscle knots that are within deeper sets of muscles which are not amenable to treatment through manual therapy, as well as to break up adhesions that might be hindering muscle recovery.

Electrotherapy

At Physio+, Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENS) is an integral form of electrotherapy that we use to accelerate patient rehabilitation and recovery. Unlike the home use of TENS, which is primarily for pain management, TENS is used at our clinic as part of our comprehensive treatment approach to reactivate muscles that are inactive or not functioning optimally. To ensure the effective use of TENS as part of patient care, our physiotherapists will conduct an assessment to ensure the correct placement of the TENS electrodes on the muscle that needs to be worked on.


Another means of electrotherapy that we use at Physio+ is therapeutic ultrasound. This form of electrotherapy employs sound waves to generate micro-vibrations that penetrate through to injured tissue. These micro-vibrations create heat energy that increases blood flow to the area, crucial for the realignment of tissue fibre and the healing of damaged tissue. Our physiotherapists will adjust the electrical modality of the ultrasound device to address different patient needs based on their condition and the stage of recovery in their rehabilitation. Therapeutic ultrasound is often used to help patients with tennis/golfer’s elbows and tendon pain.

Dry Needling

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 has to be administered by a certified physiotherapist.


Dry needling is different from TCM acupuncture, even though both may use the same microfilament needles. While acupuncture is focused on the meridian points throughout the body, dry needling targets mainly muscles and connective tissues.


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.
