If you’ve suffered injury or encountered any sort of orthopaedic or neurological problem, you know how frustrating life can become. Even routine daily activities can become a challenge, and you may feel your quality of life has diminished. The good news is you don’t have to face these difficulties alone.
The Expert PhysioActive Solutions
We are proud to provide evidence-based, professional treatment in Singapore. Our expert international team is skilled and experienced in many therapy modalities, some of which are listed below.
If you suffer from chronic pain syndrome, multiple sclerosis, or fibromyalgia, dry needling may be able to afford you relief. The technique can be incredibly effective for soothing chronically sore muscles and pain caused by contracted knots in your muscles and connective tissue. Those patients with trigger point pain can particularly benefit from dry needling.
Manual therapy describes a collection of specific hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat joint and soft tissue injuries. These techniques may be used to alleviate pain, increase range of motion, induce relaxation, reduce soft tissue inflammation and improve tissue repair. Our manual therapists use a wide range of manual techniques.
Exercise therapy has been scientifically proven to be one of the most effective treatment forms. That’s why it is a core element for all conditions we treat at PhysioActive. Depending on the severity of your injury your muscle function will always decrease to a certain degree. Exercise therapy improves your strength, mobility, stability and coordination, which will help you with a better and faster recovery. We will provide you with an exercise program which is specifically designed to suit your particular injury needs.
Ultrasound works with high frequency sound waves that are applied directly to the injured tissue causing an increase in tissue relaxation, local blood flow and scar tissue breakdown. This will help to reduce the pain and support the healing process. It is also a painless and non-invasive procedure.
Electrotherapy, like TENS and interferential current, reduces pain by blocking pain signals to the brain. It further increases the blood flow thus reducing the swelling and promoting the healing process. During this mode of treatment you will experience a sensation similar to ‘pins and needles’. The patient has at all times control over the intensity and will therefore never experience it as being unpleasant.
Thermotherapy & Cryotherapy
Thermotherapy & Cryotherapy is the use of heat to treat symptoms of acute or chronic pain, especially those related to muscle tension or spasm. Thermotherapy & Cryotherapy widens blood vessels and increases blood flow to the skin. It relaxes superficial muscles, decreases muscle spasm and reduces stiffness of joints.
Taping & Strapping
Sport taping is applied to support the affected joint during sport activities and therefore increase the stability of the joint. It prevents excessive movements and reduces pain. This will help you to get back safely to your sport activities. Tape can be applied to stabilize and rest the joint during daily activities and sport. This will help to reduce the pain while using the affected joint.
