Physiotherapy

is part of an integrated mainstream healthcare and an evidence-based medical profession that utilizes methods of physical means to help relieve pain, restore movements, improve strength, and increase functions.

 

At Primelife Physiotherapy, each presenting symptom is thoroughly investigated before any diagnosis is made in which it will then form the basis for our treatment advice and injury management.

 

With strong emphasis on evidence-based practice, our physiotherapist utilizes only those treatment techniques that were repeatedly studied and challenged to ensure their clinical effectiveness.

 

Treatments available at Primelife Physiotherapy include manual therapy, i.e. mobilization, trigger point massage, and movement facilitation; dry needling; taping application; and exercise prescription, i.e. strengthening, stretching, endurance training, proprioceptive, coordination retraining, postural correction, and core stability.
