What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is concerned with human function, movement and physical potential. It uses physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore physical and social well-being, taking account of variations in health status such as sports injuries, women’s health issues, post surgery rehabilitation and postural assessment.
Physiotherapy helps to relieve pain, improve muscle strength and performance, joint range and mobility and improve respiratory function.

What to expect from your visit
Most clients ‘self refer’ to a physiotherapist for treatment. While referral by a doctor or General Physician (GP) is not necessary, we encourage you to keep both your doctor and physiotherapist fully informed. Physiotherapists work closely with your doctor as part of the medical team to ensure that you receive advice on such matters as home activity, return to sport and progression of treatment. This holistic approach helps the practitioner provide best healthcare for you to achieve maximum movement and independence, reduce the risk of further injury, achieve a healthier lifestyle and reach optimum wellness outcomes.
Generally, your first appointment is for 60 minutes to allow the physiotherapist to get a full history while subsequent appointments will be for 45 minutes. Our physiotherapist is registered with the appropriate national body in the country they qualified and stays updated with continued professional education (PD). They are also registered with the Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC), Singapore.
