Post Orthopedics Surgery

The success of orthopaedic surgery depends on what is done post operatively. Often, if not managed carefully with the help of a physiotherapist, the condition may experience ongoing problems with stiffness, pain, swelling and general lack of confidence to perform daily activities such as sitting, standing, or walking.

In the early stages, our therapists help to reduce pain, decrease swelling, increase joint range of movement and strengthen the muscles around the joint. In the later stages, physiotherapists will retrain on how and when can return to normal activities including work or sport. An exercise programme is designed to guide you back to your pre-operative activity and optimal level.

  • Total Knee Replacement
  • Total Hip Replacement
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (MCL) Reconstruction

Sports Therapy/ Exercise rehabilitation

Sports Physiotherapy is concerned with the early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of injuries or the prevention of injury. Our therapists aim to rehabilitate your injury as quickly and effectively as possible and ensure your early return to exercise and sport.
We will identify your specific sporting needs and prescribe tailored treatment and exercise programmes to guide you back to your pre injury level

Post Hospitalization

Many patients discharged from hospital either with weakness, pain, or movement limitations. Often, most will wait until their condition is more manageable before going out of home to seek for outpatient physiotherapy / rehabilitation services. With our home-based physical therapy available, it prevents delayed recovery and helps faster return back to function.

Commonly seen cases:

  • Prolonged resting in bed
  • Falls / Instability
  • Reduced performance in Activities of Daily Living (such as eating, dressing, toileting, getting up from bed, transfer to sit on chair)
  • Loss of confidence in standing up and walking
  • General Weakness/ Deconditioning
