Edema and Swelling Physiotherapy Singapore
Edema is our body's natural way of healing an injured part; a part
gets injured by trauma, and the body will send its natural repair
workers through fluids that accumulate in the localized area.
Unfortunately, along with these workers, comes substances that
aggravates pain and swelling as well. Usually medical practitioners will
prescribe anti-swelling capsules to decrease the accumulation of fluids (too much fluids can increase pressure and damage organs/tissues)
delays healing and causes pain and increased stiffness, hence it
compromises functional results - that's why we provide edema
physiotherapy management in our clinic for it. So whilst it's important
that we facilitate the healing process, we need to decrease the amount
of swelling too.
Some of the techniques and approaches that we use to manage swelling in our physiotherapy clinic:
- after an injury, it's really important to balance between exercising
the injured joint and rest. Too little rest, and the injury may not heal
well; too much rest and too little exercise will result with a lot of
stiffness and decreased range of motion. We will monitor and constantly
re-evaluate you and your body's balance to ensure best mobility and
functional results in managing the swelling.
of the injured part in a position higher than usual position (but not
too high in case it may cause too little blood supply to the elevated
limb) to let gravity help with the removal of the excess fluids in the
localized area; you can use simple pillows, but as pillows may be warm
or inadequate sized, you may want to consider pillow foam leg elevator
Icing / cold therapy
is used when there is no contraindications to using ice such as open
wounds or adverse reaction to cold temperatures. Icing decreases muscles
spasms, and encourages the contraction of the affected area. We're well
versed with using Chattanooga cold pack products, they're durable =)
acts as a pump that accelerates the propulsion rate of fluids entering
and leaving the affected area. It also encourages and maintains the
active range of motion for the unaffected joints.

sure to note of any adverse effects. If you're not sure and would like a
physiotherapist to do it, do contact your physician for a referral, or
