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, it aims 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. By performing assessments and applying clinical reasoning, individualised treatment plans are drawn up to address individuals' needs. Additionally, appropriate education is provided for individuals to understand their conditions. These are done in tandem with other healthcare professionals working in multi-disciplinary teams to ensure optimal and holistic care.
With professional, competent and service orientated staff, the department aims to promote physical independence by enhancing function - particularly in the areas involving the musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory systems – while encouraging individuals to assume responsibility for their health and well-being.
The outpatient physiotherapy services provided at level 2, Podium, Outpatient Rehabilitation Centre, include:

"If there were a pill that cost very little, reduced cardiac deaths by 27%, improved quality of life, and reduced anxiety and depression, every cardiac patient in Europe would be expected to take it. There is no such pill, but taking part in a cardiac rehabilitation programme can provide all these benefits." – Professor Bob Lewin, European Society of Cardiology, Amsterdam 2005.
When you have a lung condition, you can find it hard to walk around or perform your daily activities without getting breathless. Breathlessness can be very frightening. To avoid circumstances where they might become breathless, people with a lung condition often reduce the amount of activity they do each day. In the long run, they will become unfit, tired, and more breathless. If you are experiencing this, you may benefit from the pulmonary rehabilitation programme. Pulmonary rehabilitation aims to help you cope with your breathlessness, and also to feel stronger / fitter at the same time.
