Case Studies 3
Patient: Female, 45 years old
Case: Bodily pain
Physiotherapy session: Manual therapy, postural correction, and a customised muscles strengthening programme
A constant pain on the left side of her neck, coupled with pains down her entire left arm caused the patient sleepless nights and appetite loss, resulting in a lack of concentration at work. She was treated conservatively with medication before being referred to us for physiotherapy. After a thorough assessment, careful manual therapy was performed during the treatment to manage her condition and to promote healing of the irritated nerve. Our therapist also spent time educating her on the importance of taking the prescribed medication on a regular basis to help in her recovery. Following a few sessions of physiotherapy that included manual therapy, postural correction, and a customised muscles strengthening programme, the patient recovered from her pain and now leads a life of normalcy.
