Orthopaedic Rehabilitation

Gleneagles Hospitals hosts a wide variety of rehabilitation services aimed at restoring physical, mental and life skills for all patients who may have experienced a reduced function in their daily activities. These services include physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech-language therapy in order to provide the most comprehensive healthcare experience possible.

Occupational Therapy
When it comes to helping an individual restore their ability to handle everyday tasks that have since become a challenge due to physical disability from neurological, orthopaedic, medical, surgical or other various conditions, Occupational Therapy may be prescribed.

This type of therapy includes:

Hand/upper limb therapy for people who have hand fractures; nerve, ligament, or tendon injuries; tendinitis; or congenital deformities
Splints and orthosis to make customised splints for upper and lower limbs, neck and spine
Neuro-rehabilitation programme to maximise your recovery potential by working closely with you, family members and caregivers to achieve the highest level of independence
Home evaluation/modifications to help you overcome physical barriers within and outside the home, including use of equipment or appliances to enhance your safety and mobility
Aids/appliances prescription to provide the most suitable aids or appliances such as wheelchairs, commode chairs or raised toilet seats for your maximum independence at home
Oedema/lymphoedema management to provide manual lymph drainage for swelling of the limbs, which can hinder function and cause contracture
Physiotherapy
For patients who may experience health problems due to injury from physical trauma or diseases, Physiotherapy aims to help them regain and reclaim both mobility and strength in the affected areas.

Physiotherapy includes:

  • Back/neck care to shorten the recovery time and decrease the chance of back pain becoming chronic

  • Treatment of sports injuries, including sprains and strains of ligaments and muscles, such as tennis elbow, ankle strain and knee joint strain; and intensive rehabilitation after orthopaedic surgery such as rotator cuff repair or anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

  • Arthritis management to alleviate pain and discomfort during acute flare-ups of arthritis

  • Post-orthopaedic surgery management through a multidisciplinary postoperative rehabilitation programme to help you regain your full function

  • Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy to help people with lung problems, especially after surgery and in those who are undergoing prolonged bed rest

  • Neuro-rehabilitation which includes a comprehensive exercise regimen for the limbs and trunk to help you maximise and regain normal muscle movement and function

  • Vestibular (balance) rehabilitation, an exercise-based programme to minimise dizziness, improve balance and prevent falls by restoring normal function

  • Craniosacral therapy, a gentle therapy to help manage acute and chronic pain and joint misalignment

  • Visceral manipulation to encourage normal mobility, tone and motion of the organs and their connective tissues

  • Dry needling to relieve muscle tightness (spasm) by changing its neuromuscular control

  • Prenatal programme, an educational/exercise programme to teach skills for pregnancy, labour and childbirth
Speech-language Therapy
Patients who may have experienced communication and or swallowing disorders may benefit in the quality of life improvement that comes with Speech-language therapy. This form of therapy includes swallowing, speech, language, voice, resonance, fluency and neuro-rehabilitation programmes.
