What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness.
Physiotherapists study the science of movement. They are able to pinpoint an injury’s root cause and help you get involved in your own recovery.
When Should You See a Physiotherapist?
Most people in Singapore have misconception that Physiotherapy is only for people who are injured. Physiotherapy is not only for people who are injured to do their rehabilitation, but also for anyone who are having body tightness or chronic pain and muscle soreness in their body. Anyone can benefit from physiotherapy, whether injured or healthy, young, or old, because physiotherapist will assess and customise your treatment program based on one’s needs, as well as health and fitness goals.
So, think about getting physiotherapy if you have an injury, chronic muscle soreness or body tightness that affects how you function every day.
How Does Physiotherapy Help Treat The Injury?
Upon your first visit, our physiotherapist will begin their assessment by gaining background knowledge on why, how and when your pain or injury occurred.
A physical examination will then be done to evaluate the extent of the muscle injury. Muscle strains are classified as 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree which defines the severity and establishes guidelines for the treatment plan and anticipated recovery time. The presence of bruising will indicate that there has been some tearing of muscle fibers – and the location and extent of the bruising helps the physiotherapist determine the degree of injury.
After a thorough assessment, the physiotherapist will create a treatment plan that will address the acute stage of your specific injury as well as long-term recovery goals. The rehabilitation process also includes education and suggestions to prevent recurrent and future injuries.
Physiotherapists choose, as indicated by the specific injury, from a variety of different methods of treatment to treat the injured muscle.
