Scope of Physiotherapist Visits
Geriatric Physiotherapy: covers three areas – normal ageing due to disuse and deconditioning, cardiovascular problems like vascular disease and stroke, and skeletal problems including osteoporosis and osteoarthritis conditions such as knee and hip replacements.
► Physiotherapy aims at the recovery of musculoskeletal function, particularly recovery from joint, tendon, or ligament repair and, or, their ability to live independently.
► Physiotherapy helps the body to remove sputum and improve the efficiency of oxygen uptake by using techniques including clapping or percussion as well as specific exercise regimes. The exercises prescribed can include specific respiratory exercises e.g. autogenic drainage and general cardiovascular exercises.
Cardiac Physiotherapy: covers the treatment for patients with ischemic heart disease, with myocardial infarction, after coronary angioplasty, after coronary-aortic by-pass graft surgery and to patients with chronic heart failure.
► Physiotherapy includes a combination of exercises with other lifestyle changes, such as eating a balanced diet and quit smoking, reducing the risk of future heart problems.
Neurological Physiotherapy: covers treatment of individuals who have neurological impairments; for example, Traumatic Brain Injury or Stroke; Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury and Parkinson's disease.

Musculoskeletal, Sports Injury & Orthopaedic Physiotherapy: Manages and treats disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system including rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgery.
