The Department of Physiotherapy at Sengkang General Hospital provides physiotherapy services in both an inpatient and outpatient setting. Through a holistic and clinically reasoned approach, our physiotherapists aim to help people of all ages and abilities to optimise mobility and function. This is often done with patient-specific health goals in mind – whether it is to return to independent living, pre-injury status, or a sport or activity of choice. With all our patients, our team focuses on individualised care that includes a comprehensive assessment with clinical reasoning and a full complement of exercise, modalities and manual therapies in order to manage pain and maximize function and independence.
Vestibular rehabilitation is a exercise based physiotherapy to help patients withdizziness and/ or balance issues. Conditions such as vertigo, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, vestibular hypofunction and neck related dizziness can be helped with physiotherapy through exercise and attenuation. Our specialized physiotherapists who have undergone additional training, assess and identify peripheral vestibular issues. This is through the use of specialized equipment such as the Frenzel googles which are optical googles designed to identify any abnormal movements of the eyes to identify the causes of dizziness.

Patients who have frequent swelling in the body, especially in the arms and legs either as a primary condition or secondary to cancer or cancer treatments can be managed by specially trained physiotherapists.

Our physiotherapists aim to provide individualized rehabilitation to people with limb loss at different phases from the pre-operative, acute post-operative, pre-prosthetic and eventually to the prosthetic phase. Our rehabilitation program consists of limb care, wound management, strength training and use of the pneumatic post ambulation mobility aid to practice gait before the prosthesis is made for the patient, if suitable. We also empower our patients through education and prescription of an individualized home programme. We work closely in a specialized multidisciplinary team, alongside the rehabilitation doctor, prosthetist, nurses and medical social worker, to provide a holistic care for our patients. The ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to eventually get the patient back to function and returning to daily activities safely with or without a prosthesis.
The outpatient physiotherapy services at Sengkang General Hospital is located at level 2, Lift Lobby C, Outpatient Rehabilitation Centre.
