Re-education physiotherapy is utilized for a few different
physiotherapy therapy interventions: mobility and sensory re-learning
(such as walking re-training; walking or limping is a very complex and
dynamic mobility activity that involves the use of the entire human body
as a whole). Walking is different from individuals to individuals,
according to each one's individual anatomy and physiology, our age and
conditioning to walk at what speed.
Physiotherapy in our clinic will be used to help and teach our patients
to learn how to walk again, normally, after an injury or disorder, or
to help maintain their functional mobility if they have chronic
conditions that affects their ability to walk.
result of abnormal walking patterns, it can cause muscle imbalances and
weakening of muscles neglected, joint stiffness where the joints are not
utilized, pain that can be chronic as well as nervous system disorders.
We will first assess our patients' walking pattern, before creating a
custom-made physiotherapy rehabilitation and re-education program that
will be a combination of strengthening, improving active and passive
range of motion, pain relief as well as walking re-education.
will prescribe walking aids suitable for your level of mobility and
function, as well as teach you how and when to use it safely and
Following an injury, one can have affected, impaired or poor sensation
i.e. pins and needles all the time in the hand or the foot, unable to
tell where the body part is in relation to the body, increased
sensitivity to temperature or pressure or touch etc. All these causes an
increase risk to falls or tissue damage.Sensory
re-learning plays an important part of teaching body parts or organs
such as the skin with hypersensitivity to become normal again, to enable
participation in daily tasks and activities.
An example is when a
patient post-operatively develops a hypersensitive thumb that feels pain
with light touches, pressure regardless of light or deep pressure, and
with exposure to hot or cold elements. The opposite can happen, where
the patient cannot feel, and they might even sustain an injury without
realizing it.This impairs the patient's ability to
handle coins, to use keys, to button, to comb their hair, to press
button and the like.
This will also impair his or her ability to work,
to text someone, to hold a phone to talk to someone, to lift up a cup of
coffee to their mouths to drink - the amount of impact is very great.
It also exposes them of risks of injury, and even amputations. What
we need to do is gradual exposure to stimuli that are painful and
nociceptive, in a safe, clinical environment to ensure nerve and
sensitivity can be normalized, which is re-education physiotherapy.
