Can Physiotherapy Cure Fully?

Can Physiotherapy Cure Fully?

This is one of the commonly asked question by patients or over-the-phone.

Some variations include

  • can physio cure me 100%?
  • can I fully recover?

The word "cure" is the final end result to health problems, illnesses, diseases and sicknesses in healthcare.  To cure means to treat with plans to restore health to normalcy.

In the world today, there are more than thousands and tens of thousands of medical issues and diseases, and each of the problem have variance given difference causes, genetics, pathology and history.

That's why even the best doctors, therapists or health professional in Singapore or in any part of the world, will not guarantee you a 100% cure from diseases or illnesses.

Neither can we promise 100% recovery.

What we can promise is that we bring the best dedicated physiotherapists, occupational therapists, hand therapists, Chinese Physicians, personal trainers, massage therapists and sports and conditioning coaches, with the experience and expertise and interest in orthopedic, musculoskeletal and sports rehabilitation together, to bring you the best one-to-one, undisrupted attention, to bring you as close to 100% as you and your body can.

We live, breathe, think therapy.

This is our deepest and truest promise as health professionals we can bring to you and your loved ones.

This is why medical sciences are continuously researching and developing better treatment technologies, techniques and pharmacologies to help patients get the best solutions to their medical problems.

Early Diagnosis and Treatment Will Help You Answer The Question of "Can Physiotherapy Cure Fully"

If you have any pains or discomfort, or if you know someone who has pains and discomfort, it is good to seek medical help as early as possible.

You see, the earlier you seek treatment, usually there is much better outcomes rather than waiting until there's too much local damage before seeking treatment.

We do have a number of patients who had experienced pain, but had thought to themselves that "the pain will go away after a few days", and they wait, and they wait...sometimes up to a few months.

Pain is a natural signal that your body is telling you that there is some damage within a part in your body, and that needs to be treated.

Untreated damage can escalate to actual physical changes within the damaged areas, and may lead to permanent damage, which is very linked to long-term pain.

The sooner our experienced therapists can see you, diagnose and treat you, not only is it easier to treat but also has much higher chances of better (or best) clinical outcomes. This also means quicker recovery periods, quicker pain free living too.

Some factors that influence your recovery includes: 

  • your age (older people usually have slower healing rates and higher risk of complications due to co-morbidities)
  • existence of other medical conditions simultaneously
  • the level of active participation
  • compliance to physiotherapy advice
  • compliance to home exercises prescribed

To be able to cure also is influenced by the causative factors and the health of the affected structure. Structures that are degenerated such as disc degeneration in the spine or osteoarthritis in the joints, these are some conditions that cannot be reversed - what we can do as physiotherapist is to decrease the inflammation and pain experienced, and strengthen up supporting structures to take the load and pain off these painful areas.

Living Healthy and Well Despite Diseases
Can Physiotherapy Cure Fully?

Even if someone has a chronic illness such as osteoarthritis in the knees, they can still live healthy and well. Many of our patients are very functional with some medications prescribed by their doctors, combined with physiotherapy with us.

Our goal is no longer to cure 100% but to ensure that there is minimal future/ongoing damage to the affected structures, and maximizing function and mobility.

We will focus on pain relief, increase joint flexibility and strengthen supporting muscles to support the joint better.

So, Can Physiotherapy Fully Cure All Problems?

As much as I have much faith in our physiotherapists and all other therapists, having being treated for hand pain, back pain, neck pain and ankle pain with them (they can treat more problems than what I had), I will still have to say that physiotherapy is not a miracle and they wont be able to solve all medical problems nor guarantee that the problem wont come back in the future.

We cannot and do not overpromise such that your pains will never come back. If you have had back pain, and you received back care physiotherapy from us, it doesn't mean that you will never have back pain again - our physiotherapists will provide you the best physiotherapy back care diagnosing, treatment and intervention, on top of education to prevent recurrence.

Yet, there are variables that may cause pain to come back, such as a new acute injury from a fall; a growth in the body; improper mechanics of movement; insufficient warm up, natural ageing and more.

What we can promise is that we bring the best dedicated physiotherapists, occupational therapists, hand therapists, Chinese Physicians, personal trainers, massage therapists and sports and conditioning coaches, with the experience and expertise and interest in orthopedic, musculoskeletal and sports rehabilitation together, to bring you the best one-to-one, undisrupted attention, to bring you as close to 100% as you and your body can.

We live, breathe, think therapy.

This is our deepest and truest promise as health professionals we can bring to you and your loved ones.
