Rheumatology Physiotherapy

Rheumatology Physiotherapy

Rheumatology physiotherapy is a speciality of physiotherapy involving working on rheumatic (auto immune) diseases which are classified by inflammation of joints, muscles and connective tissues throughout the body. Common examples are Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus and Vasculitis. It is important to see a physiotherapist with experience in treating rheumatological conditions like at Health2u as a physiotherapist without experience can actually worsen the symptoms.

Can Rheumatology Physiotherapy Help Me?

If you have a rheumatological condition then Health2u can provide physiotherapists with experience in rheumatological conditions to see you at home or at our central clinic in Telok Ayer. At the first appointment the physiotherapist will carry out a thorough assessment which includes looking at your mobility and walking aids, muscle strength and joint movement, posture and function. They will then discuss any treatments that can be provided along with goals to improve you general function and mobility and live an active life. Some of the treatments they can offer include advice on ice, working on mobility, massage, taping, acupuncture and teaching specific exercises.

How Can Rheumatology Occupational Therapy Help?

Health2u can also provide occupational therapists to come to your home in Singapore. Some of the services they can offer include:

  • Home assessments including making adaptations such as building ramps, grab bars, widening doorways, rearranging furniture, providing special toilet seats and other aids
  • Splinting
  • Wheelchair assessments

What Causes a Rheumatic Disease?

The immune system is affected and it does not read signals from the outside correctly and then begins to ‘attack’ the normal cells in the body rather than protecting them which is its normal role.

If you would like to consult a physiotherapist experienced in rheumatic diseases from Health2u then just contact us via whatsapp, phone or email.
