Physiotherapy - Manual Therapy Singapore
For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp xx
We employ manual therapy and manipulation therapies for the treatment of
health conditions and problems using a physical, hands-on intervention. Here in
our physiotherapy clinics of Specialist Rehab Group Singapore, we utilize and offer a range of manual
techniques and solutions for you, depending on your medical conditions.
The benefits of this approach are:
quick musculoskeletal pain relief; shortening the recovery time for
injuries; increasing the active and passive range of motion (ROM) of joints;
decreases soft tissue inflammation; induces relaxed states of muscles; assists
contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability;
facilitating movement; and improving overall mobility and function.
Some of the offered manual physiotherapy techniques include:
1) clinical massage
2) soft tissue mobilization
3) various connective tissue techniques
4) myofascial release
5) mobilization of joints
6) joint manipulation
7) mobilization of neural tissue
8) visceral mobilization
Using a manual and manipulative techniques are very useful in the management of
musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions, where stiffness sets in into
muscles, joints and tendons. Often, a quick respond and result will follow when
Some cases will benefit from sports massage and deep tissue release
sessions, to decrease muscle spasms that comes from pain, prolonged
An example where I personally will apply the above manual techniques is the
case of a person with a fractured thumb of first and second bone. After two
weeks of healing following a fracture, the patient often presents with
stiffness to the metacarpal joint (MCPJ) and interphalangeal joint (IPJ). What I
will do then, if there are no contraindications, I will heat the joints with
either a combination of paraffin wax bath and intermittent hotpack, followed by
scar mobilization, then followed by joint mobilization (combination of passive
and active range of motion exercises) to stretch out joints.
