Physiotherapy plays an essential part in the prevention of injuries, as well as in the healing of injuries. Your physiotherapist can assess your posture and muscle development for issues and imbalances that will lead to tension, which in turn can lead to physical injury.
All assessments and treatments at Thanyapura Health are performed by our licensed phuket physiotherapist (Mr. Kittichai Kaewsinsawat) and our highly experienced team of skilled therapists will assess and treat your musculoskeletal injuries or conditions. We also provide an in-depth sports injury rehabilitation program, to help you regain your full sporting or day-to-day activity levels, after suffering an injury or when recovering from surgery or other treatment.
Our friendly and relaxed atmosphere enables our clients to feel comfortable, not intimidated or rushed during their treatments. We believe that education and knowledge related to a particular injury is the key in order for you to self-treat and optimally manage your condition. We aim to facilitate the healing process while avoiding re-injury.
Manual therapy involves the physiotherapist’s use of his or her hands to mobilise the joints of the spine and extremities, create movement in nerve tissue or facilitate the activation, flexibility and normal tone of muscle. Several different techniques can be used to restore normal motion (not too much, not too little) and regain control of that motion. This allows each region of the body to move fully, efficiently and safely.
Exercise therapy involves eliciting motion of the body or its parts in order to relieve symptoms and improve function. Specific stretching, strengthening, and stabilization exercises are a critical part of the rehabilitation process for most musculoskeletal injuries. Continued exercise is an important component of injury prevention. Taping and bracing injured joints and body parts protects those areas from further re-injury and allows for an earlier return to activity. It also can supply support to an area, which will allow muscles, which have tightened or sprained to relax thus facilitating an earlier return of motion. Electrotherapy treatments including ultrasound, Interferential (IFC), and Transcutaneous Nerve Stimulation (TNS) can be beneficial for prevention and treatment.
