What is Physiotherapy? 

Physiotherapy, also known as physical therapy;

Is a healthcare profession that involves the assessment, 

Diagnosis, and treatment of physical impairments, disabilities, and pain. 


Physiotherapists are licensed healthcare professionals who have undergone

extensive training and education 

to provide patients with personalized treatment plans 

that help them recover from injuries, 

manage chronic conditions, 

and improve their overall physical function, 

wellness and mobility.


How Does Physiotherapy Work?

During a physiotherapy session, the physiotherapist will first conduct an

evaluation to assess the patient's condition and identify any physical limitations 

or areas of pain. 

They may also review medical records and perform diagnostic tests,

such as X-rays or MRI scans, 

to gain a better understanding of the underlying 

cause of the patient's condition.


Based on their assessment, 

the physiotherapist will then develop a personalized treatment plan that

may include exercises, 

manual therapy, electrotherapy, and other interventions. 

The goal of physiotherapy is to help patients restore their physical function,

improve their mobility and flexibility, 

and manage pain and discomfort.


Physiotherapy can be beneficial for a wide range 

Of conditions, 

Including musculoskeletal injuries,

Neurological disorders, 

Cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, 

And chronic pain. 

It can also be helpful for individuals who are recovering from surgery

or are dealing with the effects of aging.


At the heart of physiotherapy, 

is the belief that every patient is unique, 

and therefore, 

each treatment plan should be tailored to the individual's specific needs and goals. 

Physiotherapists work closely with their patients to 

develop a plan that is both effective and achievable, 

and they regularly monitor progress and adjust 

the plan as needed.

Laser Therapy

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that utilizes specific wavelength of light to help accelerate the healing process. 

Laser safely penetrate into the skin to help improve healing and reduce pain relief also decrease inflammation. 

Those that suffer from sprains, muscle pain, inflammation, joint pain will find benefit in

Apollo Cold Laser.


Electrotherapy is used for relaxation of muscle spasms, prevention and

retardation of disuse atrophy, 

increase of blood circulation, muscle rehabilitation, 

and reduction by electrical muscle stimulation.

Electrical stimulation may directly block transmission of pain signals along nerves. 

In addition, electrical stimulation has been shown to promote the release of endorphins, 

the natural painkillers produced by the body. 


The ultrasound waves pass through skin and vibrate the soft tissue with deep heat

even though the patient can’t feel warming sensation.

Ultrasound is known to relax your tissues, 

Break down scar tissue and increase blood flow around the affected area. 

An increase blood flow can help reduce swelling. 

Common injuries which can be treated by ultrasound include tendonitis, frozen shoulder, bursitis, muscle tear, spasms and strains, ligament sprains and tight joints

Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy is a method for the treatment of superficial orthopedic disorders. 

A projectile accelerated in the hand piece generates a mechanical pressure wave, 

which is transferred to body by an applicator head and which radiates out in the tissue. 

The mechanical stress triggers reactions in the tissue that have a positive influence on a wide range of orthopedic and neurological conditions

Exercise Prescription

Exercise plays an important role in improving the performance and functioning of the body area under rehabilitation

The exercises that are prescribed include active motion, strengthening, stretching, balancing, and conditioning exercises

Kinesiology Taping

Taping is most effective when it’s used in conjunction with other treatments like manual therapy or exercise.
