Physiotherapy aims to restore and optimize a person’s physical and functional ability. Depending on a patient’s physical condition, underlying medical issues, and goals, a physiotherapist will usually recommend a personalized treatment program which may include specialized exercises, manual therapy, and the application of different treatment modalities.
Common modalities include heat, ultrasound, hydrotherapy and electrical therapy. Manual therapy is specific to the underlying condition and may include mobilizations, manipulations, and myofacial release (medical massage).
As there are many physiotherapy practices in Singapore, each catering to the needs of specific groups of patients, it is important to select an appropriate physiotherapist based on your condition and their area of expertise.
