What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a method of treating diseases, deformities, or injuries using physical ways such as heat treatments, massages, and exercises instead of using surgery and medicines. Physiotherapy is derived from two words Physical and Therapy. It is given by Physiotherapists who help the patients heal through exercise, yoga, and even more.
Who Needs Physical Therapy?
Anyone who struggles with pain in different parts of the body or diseases that they are struggling with. Sometimes taking hardcore medicines or going through painful surgeries is not the best solution when physiotherapy can provide relief from most body-related problems through exercises and a fit lifestyle.
Ankle and Feet Physiotherapy
Ankles and feet are the most important parts of the body because they help us move around and get from one place to another. Without them, it would be impossible to run, walk or even jump. With them being constantly in use when we do any kind of activity on foot, they are at the risk of getting an injury almost every time. In Singapore, injuries to feet and ankles are very likely to happen. Minor sprains and aches might resolve with some time on their own without the need for medicines or therapy. But for the major problems, physiotherapy is needed before permanent damage makes them unusable. Not treating major injuries can lead to daily hindrance in movement.
The ankle physiotherapy is not just good for already existing injuries; they are also recommended for rehabilitation after surgery. Physiotherapists are well aware of foot and ankle injuries and they know how to deal with them effectively. They use the latest techniques and ways to help the clients get relief from pain and improve movement.
