Sports Therapy

Rehabilitation in sport is a process designed to minimize the loss associated with acute injury or chronic disease, to promote recovery and to maximize functional capacity, fitness and performance 

Rehabilitation plan must take into account the fact that the objective of the athlete is to return to the same activity and environment in which the injury occurred. Functional capacity after rehabilitation should be the same, if not better than before injury. 

The ultimate goal of rehabilitation process is to limit the extent of the injury, reduce or reverse the Impairment and functional loss and prevent, correct or eliminate altogether the disability.

Oncology and Lymphedema Therapy

Surviving cancer requires attention to optimizing function and quality of life. Physical Therapists evaluate the patient's condition throughout the cancer experience and provide effective treatment strategies to return a person to their previous level of physical function.The rehabilitation of cancer patients involves detailed assessment and intervention which is geared towards functional training, strengthening, fatigue-combating interventions, complete decongestive therapy for lymphoedema patients and relaxation techniques to meet the specific goals of each patient.

Cardiac Rehabilitation​​

Paediatric Physiotherapy

Geriatrics 

Providing Physiotherapy to older people is a challenge, best described by the following, working with older people can present the Physiotherapist with a set of challenges unparalleled in other areas of practice. The case load is very mixed, patients with Musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiovascular problems may all be found in a single work load and often in the same patient. 

Interlinking between medical, psychological, rehabilitation, economic and social problems that all will need attention is the norm rather than the exception. 

Physiotherapist working with older Adult therefore  needs a variety of skills to apply to their patients in light of biopsychosocial model to ensure a holistic, patient centred care approach.  Physiotherapist has a key role in enabling older adults to use a number of the body's systems fully to enhance mobility and independence.

 

When neither improvement nor even maintenance of functional mobility is a reasonable goal, physiotherapists can contribute to helping older people to remain comfortable and pain free. Prevention of the development of problems in later life through health promotion
