Physiotherapy is a specialized healthcare profession focused on the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of various conditions that affect movement and function. At Chord Road, our Physiotherapy sub-department is dedicated to providing comprehensive and specialized physiotherapy services to patients of all ages. We have expertise in different areas of focus within Physiotherapy, ensuring that each patient receives personalized care to meet their unique needs.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy involves the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Our skilled physiotherapists are trained to address joint and muscle injuries, back pain, post-operative rehabilitation, and other musculoskeletal issues. Through a combination of therapeutic exercises, manual therapy, and tailored treatment plans, we aim to alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall function.

Approaches used in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy
  • Manual Therapy: Evidence-based manual techniques such as joint mobilizations, soft tissue mobilization, and manipulations to improve joint range of motion, reduce pain, and enhance tissue healing.
  • Exercise Therapy: Customized exercise programs targeting specific musculoskeletal conditions, including strengthening, stretching, and proprioceptive exercises to improve strength, flexibility, and functional abilities.
  • Therapeutic Modalities: Utilization of modalities such as heat or cold therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and therapeutic taping to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue healing.
Importance of a Personalized Treatment Plan

Recognizing that each patient has unique musculoskeletal conditions and goals, a personalized treatment plan ensures that interventions are tailored to address individual needs effectively. This approach promotes better outcomes and patient satisfaction by addressing specific impairments, reducing pain, improving function, and enhancing overall quality of life.

Cardiothoracic Physiotherapy

Cardiothoracic Physiotherapy focuses on providing specialized care for patients with cardiovascular and respiratory conditions. This includes post-cardiac surgery rehabilitation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and other respiratory disorders. Our physiotherapists work closely with patients to improve respiratory function, enhance endurance, and optimize overall cardiovascular health through targeted exercises and breathing techniques.

Exercises, techniques, and training involved in cardiothoracic physiotherapy
  • Respiratory Exercises: Breathing exercises including deep breathing, diaphragmatic breathing, and controlled breathing techniques to improve lung capacity, promote effective breathing patterns, and enhance respiratory function.
  • Breathing Techniques: Education and training on techniques such as huffing, coughing, and airway clearance techniques to assist in clearing mucus, managing secretions, and improving lung function.
  • Endurance Training: Individualized exercise programs targeting cardiovascular fitness, endurance, and stamina to improve overall cardiovascular health and respiratory efficiency.
Importance of Cardiothoracic Physiotherapy

Cardiothoracic conditions require specialized care to maintain optimal respiratory and cardiovascular function. Physiotherapy plays a crucial role in promoting lung health, improving breathing mechanics, enhancing endurance, and facilitating recovery after cardiac surgery or respiratory illnesses. Through tailored interventions, cardiothoracic physiotherapy helps individuals maximize their functional abilities and improve their quality of life.

Neurological Physiotherapy

Neurological Physiotherapy is dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of neurological conditions. Our physiotherapists have expertise in working with patients who have experienced stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological disorders.

Techniques and interventions used in neurological physiotherapy
  • Gait Training: Specialized techniques to address gait abnormalities, improve walking patterns, and enhance mobility.
  • Balance Exercises: Exercises to improve balance, coordination, and postural control, reducing the risk of falls and enhancing functional independence.
  • Neurorehabilitation: Evidence-based interventions, including task-specific training, constraint-induced movement therapy, and functional electrical stimulation, to promote recovery, maximize motor function, and enhance quality of life.
Importance of Neuroplasticity and Functional Recovery

Neurological conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or spinal cord injury can significantly impact motor function. Neurological physiotherapy focuses on harnessing neuroplasticity, the brain's ability to reorganize and adapt, to promote functional recovery. By using specialized techniques and interventions, such as gait training, balance exercises, and neurorehabilitation, neurological physiotherapy aims to optimize motor function, enhance independence, and improve overall quality of life.

Physiotherapy in Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy in Obstetrics offers specialized care for pregnant women. Our physiotherapists focus on maintaining physical health, managing musculoskeletal discomfort, and preparing for childbirth. Through targeted exercises, education on posture and body mechanics, and relaxation techniques, we aim to support women throughout their pregnancy journey and promote optimal well-being.

Techniques used in physiotherapy for obstetrics
  • Prenatal Exercises: Safe and tailored exercises to promote strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness during pregnancy while considering the physiological changes in the body.
  • Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation: Specific exercises to strengthen and improve the function of the pelvic floor muscles, addressing issues such as pelvic pain, incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse.
  • Posture Correction: Education and strategies to improve posture, body mechanics, and ergonomics during pregnancy to reduce discomfort, prevent musculoskeletal issues, and prepare for childbirth.
Benefits of Physiotherapy in Pregnancy and Postpartum

Physiotherapy in obstetrics offers numerous benefits for pregnant women. It helps maintain physical health, manage musculoskeletal discomfort, and prepare for childbirth through prenatal exercises, pelvic floor rehabilitation, and posture correction.
