Conditions We Treat
This refers to the pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from the lower back through the hips and buttocks down to each leg. Sciatica usually affects one side of the body and commonly occurs when a herniated disc, bone spur of the spine or narrowing of the spine compresses part of the nerve, causing pain, inflammation and often numbness in the affected leg.
Cervical spondylosis is age-related wear and tear affecting the spinal discs in your neck. There are several causes for this condition that include dehydrated discs, herniated discs, injury, ligament stiffness or overuse.
Symptoms may include tingling, numbness or weakness in arms, legs, hands or feet, lack of coordination, pain while standing, sitting, coughing, sneezing or tilting the head backwards.
Adhesive capsulitis otherwise known as a frozen shoulder is characterised by stiffness and pain in the shoulder joint. Symptoms may arise gradually and worsen over time if it’s left untreated.
Bell’s palsy is the temporary weakness of the facial muscles which makes half of the face droop and prevents one of the eyes from closing. This may be caused due to swelling or inflammation of the nerves that control the facial muscles or as a result of a viral infection. For most people, this problem will subside within a period of a few weeks to about six months to make a full recovery. However, a small portion of patients continue to suffer from this condition for life.
A common form of arthritis occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bone wear down over time resulting in excruciating pain. This can damage any joint in the body but commonly affects the hands, knees, hips and spine.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the lining of the joints and sometimes skin, eyes, lungs and blood vessels, causing painful swelling. Other symptoms may include fatigue, fever, loss of appetite and joint stiffness.
Muscular Dystrophy is a culmination of a group of diseases that cause weakness and loss of muscle mass. This condition is due to the interference of abnormal genes affecting the production of proteins required to form healthy muscles. Commonly seen during childhood, it can progress towards adulthood mostly in boys and rarely in girls.
Chest physiotherapy consists of techniques that allow the expansion of the lungs, strengthening of the breathing muscles and improved drainage of lung secretions. This is particularly useful for treating diseases such as cystic fibrosis and COPD. It is also used to clear out the lungs to prevent pneumonia post-surgery.
Muscle fatigue is a symptom that decreases muscular functions over time, often associated with exhaustion, strenuous activity or other possible causes such as anaemia, anxiety, cerebral palsy, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, dehydration, medications, hepatitis C, mineral deficiency, muscular dystrophy, muscle inflammation, pregnancy, sleep deprivation and stroke.
