Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy, is a treatment to improve, preserve and maintain an individual’s function, mobility and overall health. Physiotherapy also helps to avoid the recurrence of injury and prevent secondary injuries. Physiotherapists help you to keep track of your own recovery with a treatment course. Physiotherapists depend on exercises, manual hands-on therapy and other skills and modalities to help you heal quickly depending on your condition.

It is not necessary to visit your doctor before receiving a physiotherapy evaluation if your extended health provider does not require a doctor’s referral. Some patients, however, feel more at ease seeing their practitioner first.

On the other hand, our physiotherapists also work closely with our Sports and Exercise Specialist Doctor and other specialist doctors on some conditions.

The first session will take up to 60 minutes, whereas follow up sessions typically last for around 45-60 minutes, depending on your condition.

On your first visit, we will collect your information so that we can get to know you better. We recommend that you arrive last least 10 minutes early for your first session. After your registration, your physiotherapist will lead you to the treatment room where they will ask you some questions pertaining to your condition.

In order to correctly evaluate the problem and choose an effective treatment strategy, your physiotherapist will also examine your strength, flexibility, function, gait, reflexes, and more during the initial assessment. The physiotherapist could also use palpation techniques to assess the affected area. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have along the way. Throughout the assessment, your physiotherapist will speak with you frequently, followed by a discussion of the best recovery program for you within the shortest time period.

Your physiotherapist will diagnose your condition or injury. They will inform you of when and how frequently they anticipate seeing you. They might also give you a general timetable for when you can expect to make a full recovery.

After this, your physiotherapist will start your treatment which might comprise of few methods such as soft tissue massage, ultrasound therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, strengthening and stretching exercises, and etc. Additionally, your therapist will advise you on the exercises that will assist you in recovering from your condition.

You can schedule any necessary follow-up appointments as you leave your initial session.

The number of sessions required typically depends on various factors, such as the severity of the condition and the level of commitment to recovery. Depending on the severity of the condition, more serious or chronic conditions may require 2 or more months of treatment. Your physiotherapist might see you more often, up to 2-3 times per week, then tapering down to 1-2 times per week during maintenance phase.

You may bring any relevant scan or test reports with you on your first visit. This will help your physiotherapist during the assessment. You may also bring your doctor’s referral or guarantee letter for claim purposes.

For your physiotherapy visits, it is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable clothing that would not restrict your movements and at the same time would allow the physiotherapist to have access to the affected area. You may also bring a change of clothes such as t-shirt and shorts if you are travelling from work.

We suggest that you set an appointment with us before your visit to avoid disappointment or long waiting time. Just drop us a WhatsApp Message or notify us through phone call and we will give you an appointment within the next available timing.

One of the most common worries people have about getting physiotherapy is that it will hurt.

While some hands on treatment can be slightly uncomfortable, such as when the therapist identifies the pointe of pain or tightness, majority of treatment techniques should not be painful.

Some reasons you might feel painful during the treatment includes:

  • Soft tissue tightness
  • Scar formation
  • Soft tissue inflammation/injury
