Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

The treatment of musculoskeletal conditions is a specialised area in physiotherapy. As clinical specialists in musculoskeletal physiotherapy, we use musculoskeletal evaluation techniques that help identify the specific problem creating pain and disability. Our therapists employ  current, research-based   protocols and treatment plans that are customised to your individual goals. In addition, we keep close communication with you and your physician to ensure that appropriate progress and recovery is achieved.

The best results require a partnership between therapist and patient. At Ladnan Hospital we believe the more active patients are in their own recovery, the faster they will get better. We emphasise patient education by teaching self-care and at-home exercise programs on the first visit.

We offer the following physiotherapy services:

Sports injuries

No matter what level of competition you participate in, amateur or professional, or if you play in an individual or team sport, we can and will help you return to your sport as quickly as possible.  Our physiotherapists draw upon their many years of experience to accurately diagnose the injury, such as ligament or muscle strains or sprains, and plan an individually based treatment and rehabilitation program. This rehabilitation program will be designed and modified with close communication with your physician, coach and any other appropriate individuals involved with your sport.
