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?
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
- 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.

Really excellent service. Gemma, who arranged the appointment was great, and Jacob the physiotherapist excellent. I called and within almost 12 hours I was seen and made better!
Veni was great with my Father. Both of them got on well & my Father feel very comfortable with her. Looking forward to Veni providing further Physio for him!

I'm really happy with the service received from them. I used them twice and both times the therapists were great, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Plus the convenience of being seen at my own home.

Great service and so much easier them coming to your home. Had physio for my 2yr old after his leg was taken out of plaster and Maria was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly with him.
- Louise P.
Jacob was very good and gave lots of helpful exercises and advice. my feet and ankles have definitely improved since his visit so would definitely recomment.
Florence was just fantastic! She helped renew my confidence and was very detailed
I thought your whole service was excellent from booking to receiving treatment. Unfortunately my mother (patient) did not want to continue with treatment at this stage. I thought Abideen was superb and kept me informed in detail of how the treatment went. I have no doubt that if my mother would have given herself a chance with Abideen then she would have been on the road to recovery by now, but I couldn’t force Her. I would definitely recommend your services to a friend.
Excellent service and prompt with materials in hand.

This was the first time I've use Physiocomestoyou services, and so far I am very happy. Customer services is excellent, and Lauren is very nice and professional. I can't wait for my daughter next appointment.

I had an incredible experience with physio. James Bradley - I had nerve damage and though I'm a professional fitness instructor, I could not move past it- within an hour and a half he had me up and moving- really the BEST experience I could have had and so grateful he showed up on time to my home. What a gift.
- Lyndsey Seale
James was thorough, clear in his explanations and about what I should expect from the treatment. He was also able to put me at ease during the session. Overall this has been a very good experience and I would be happy to recommend the service to a friend.
- Helen Welch
I called around to many clinics but they either don't do home visits or were not taking new patients. I was able to find one through PhysioComesToYou and the service was amazing. A high professional organisation.
We were assigned James Bradley (who is a fantastic physiotherapist) to help my father recover his mobility following a stroke. I cannot speak highly enough of his bedside manner and professionalism. I would recommend both PyhsioComesToYou and James

Lockdown had the merit of flushing out those dark alcoves where excuses live to put off exercise but more time at home can leave you prone to over doing it. That was my story with what started as a niggle in my heal developing into a massive inflammation of my achilles and forced hanging up of my running shoes. That's when Physio Comes to you comes in. The lay up was inevitable but what was concerning was the prospect of finding a high quality physio to aid my return to tempo and long runs in the midst of tier 4 lockdown. It was great to hear the reassurance that a quality physio was on hand and the home visit that was promtpty arranged put me well on the road to recovery. It may be a while yet before clocking those sub 7 minute miles but with these guys with me every step of the way I know that when the running shoes are back on I will be in best shape.
Angela was brilliant, very considerate and professional. Most impressed
