Treatment Modalities

Treatment Modalities

  • Cryotherapy

    CryotherapyCryotherapy is usually applied for acute injuries including neck and back sprain injuries, sport injuries, sprain knee and ankle injuries, etc. Ice therapy can cause vasoconstriction, decrease blood flow to injured parts in order to reduce pain and decrease swelling.

  • Manipulative Therapy

    Manipulative Therapy Manipulative therapy is a skilled technique. They aim to mobilizing different structural barriers of the body in order to increase range of motion of joints and flexibility of soft tissues as well as decreasing related pain syndrome. It includes a variety of mobilization, manipulation, positional release therapy, craniosacral therapy and fascial release therapy etc.

    Joint Mobilization Technique
    Mobilization is a passive movement technique performed within a functional or available range for particular joints. It can relieve pain and increase or maintain range of movement of joint

    Soft tissue mobilization and relaxation technique
    For some chronic pain syndromes, the source of pain may not due to joint stiffness or degenerative change, but overuse of soft tissue (e.g. muscle, fascia), soft tissue tightness or spasm. Soft tissue mobilization technique is a skilled technique using direct contact on the involved area or indirect methods in order to promote relaxation and pain relief.

  • Acupuncture

    AcupunctureAcupuncture is one of the therapeutic methods in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) with a history of several thousand years. It based on the guidance of TCM theory and followed the principles of meridians and collaterals which include meridians, collaterals and acupoints. In recent decades, Acupuncture is commonly used in the physiotherapy for different kinds of pain syndrome and acute injuries. Acupuncture is effective in treating pain, numbness and acute injuries as well as muscle spasm. Our physiotherapists were well-trained and experienced in the application of acupuncture. We aim to achieve the greatest treatment outcomes, with the combination of acupuncture and traditional physiotherapy techniques.

  • Shockwave Therapy

    Shockwave TherapyShockwave was originally applied for the treatment of kidney stone fragmentation. It is then widely applied for treating musculoskeletal pathologies, for example tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder and ligamentous injuries.

    Shockwave is a high energy sound wave which elicits subtle injuries and inflammatory changes. This can promote blood circulation and metabolism for speedy recovery. On the other hand, shockwave can also stimulate the release of analgesic substances for pain control.

  • Chest Physiotherapy

    Chest PhysiotherapyChest physiotherapy aims at mobilizing and clearing of mucus and secretion, improving chest expansion, and improving cardiopulmonary condition in pulmonary rehabilitation.

    It is used for patients in whom cough is insufficient to clear thick, tenacious, or localized secretions and those who are recovering from pulmonary disease. Examples include cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis, atelectasis, lung abscess, neuromuscular diseases, pneumonias, and post operative patients.

    Treatment techniques include postural drainage, percussion or vibration, breathing and coughing exercise, triflow exercise, suction and active mobilization

  • Exercise Therapy

    Exercise TherapyExercise therapy includes prescription of individualized therapeutic exercises after detailed assessment by physiotherapist. It is designed to improve different aspects of patients’ conditions, e.g. decreasing or preventing pain, strengthening/ toning up specific muscles, increasing range of movement / flexibility of joints, and improving cardiovascular and pulmonary function. The main goal is to restore patient’s functional activities, prevent recurrence of disease and improve quality of life.

    Exercise therapy should be performed under instruction / supervision by physio therapist, patient requires active participation and long term commitment in exercise programme in order to get optimal effect. Our Physiotherapist will provide detailed instructions in the type, duration, frequency and goal of exercises.

  • Clinical Pilates

    Clinical PilatesPilates exercise system is developed in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates who was born in Germany. Pilates exercises aim to develop a strong “core”. During the exercise, the emphasis is on relaxed, rhythmic breathing, while performing smooth and coordinated movements. The exercises can be done on a variety of surfaces, such as mats or therapeutic balls. Exercises can also be performed using specialized equipment, Pilates Reformer. Pilates is becoming popular and it has been widely used in physiotherapy as part of the rehabilitation program as well.

    What is Clinical Pilates?
    Clinical pilates develops the deep postural muscle in the abdominal, spine, shoulder and pelvic regions. Good control of these core muscles can support and stabilize the spine, maintain good posture, prevent injuries and improve performance in sports and daily activities. Pilates are direction-preference whole body movement exercises and can be performed on mat or using low resistance spring loaded equipment. Physiotherapists design exercise programs for the clients to promote recovery and prevent recurrent injuries.

    Benefit of Clinical Pilates

    • Strengthens deep core muscles
    • Improves joint mobility and soft tissue flexibility
    • Relieves acute back pain
    • Improves chronic neck and back pain syndromes
    • Prevent episodes of back pain
    • Maintains and corrects body posture

  • Intermittent Neck Traction

    Intermittent Neck TractionExercise therapy includes prescription of individualized therapeutic exercises after detailed assessment by physiotherapist. It is designed to improve different aspects of patients’ conditions, e.g. decreasing or preventing pain, strengthening/ toning up specific muscles, increasing range of movement / flexibility of joints, and improving cardiovascular and pulmonary function. The main goal is to restore patient’s functional activities, prevent recurrence of disease and improve quality of life.

    Exercise therapy should be performed under instruction / supervision by physio therapist, patient requires active participation and long term commitment in exercise programme in order to get optimal effect. Our Physiotherapist will provide detailed instructions in the type, duration, frequency and goal of exercises.

  • Intermittent Pelvic Traction

    Intermittent Pelvic TractionMechanical pelvic traction can relieve the pressure on nerve root impinged by prolapsed intervertebral disc and degenerative changes in lumbar spine that may cause back pain and lower limb radiated pain, numbness and weakness. It also can relieve muscle tightness and joint stiffness.

    Combination of mechanical pelvic traction, manual therapy and exercise therapy can enhance treatment effectiveness and prevent recurrence of back pain. Back care is also important as well.

  • Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)

    Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)It is used for muscle reeducation by eliciting strong muscle contraction through different kinds of current. It is also used to prevent disuse atrophy in innervated muscle.

  • Interferential Therapy (IFT)

    Interferential Therapy (IFT)Two medium-frequency currents are applied simultaneously to the painful area through electrodes. It is used for pain relief, increased circulation, and muscle relaxation.

  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

    Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief. It is useful for relieve pain of different types of conditions, such as low back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, or bursitis. A session typically lasts for 20 minutes and treatments may be applied as often as necessary, depending on the severity of pain.

  • Ultrasound Therapy

    Ultrasound TherapyUltrasound therapy is a high frequency sound wave that transferred to a specific body area via a round-headed probe. It causes soft tissues to vibrate, creating deep heat. In turn, the heat induces vasodilation, drawing blood into the target tissues. Increased blood flow delivers oxygen and nutrients, and removes cell wastes. The deep heat helps to relieve pain, inflammation and promote healing.

  • Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF)

    Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Induction of low frequency magnetic field (0-100Hz) generated by electric current, to influence the activity of cellular elements or substance. Electromagnetic field can increase ion exchanges and blood circulation, modify cellular permeability to produce anti-inflammatory action, increase action of osteoblasts and electrical activity in fracture sites. It is commonly used in treating pains in tendonitis, contractures, contusion, sprains and strains, rheumatic and degenerative inflammation, fractures and ulcers

  • Thermotherapy

    ThermotherapyThermotherapy is a form of superficial heat treatment. It can be applied via two methods: moist and electrical heat packs. Heat therapy can increase metabolism and promote healing, relieve pain, decrease muscle tone and joint stiffness. It is especially effective in relaxing overused muscles and decrease joint stiffness.

彈弓指(扳機指腱鞘炎)

扳機指腱鞘炎

扳機指腱鞘炎又稱「彈弓指」,是一種手指腱鞘或滑液囊的發炎所引發的。發炎的手指腫脹,肌腱鎖在鞘內,當手指活動時,患者會感覺到發出微少的響聲。工作人士如需要頻繁及快速的手指操作或長期手握硬物操作,如燙衣,手持剪刀,手握鍋柄等的工作,都比較容易患此病症。

病因

「彈弓指」是手指屈肌之肌腱腱鞘炎,其病發原因是過度使用手指操作或長期手握等動作,令手指屈肌之肌腱鞘增厚因此變得狹窄,肌腱之滑動於手掌及手指關節交界處受到限制,在手掌及手指關節也可摸到肌腱微小腫起,導致手指彎曲後無法伸直。

臨床表現

a. 初期手指僵硬不舒服,運動不靈活
b. 手指與手掌關節處有壓痛感覺
c. 持續性疼痛
d. 當手指活動和握拿工具時會疼痛加劇
e. 在早晨時分症狀特別明顯
f. 指間關節不能完全伸直
g. 手指屈伸時會發出彈響聲音的現象

物理治療

1. 冷敷、熱敷、電療、超聲波、磁場治療、針灸等物理治療方法,為患處消炎、減輕痛楚及加速組 織復原。
2. 關節舒鬆運動、伸展運動及治療師的手法治療,增加關節活動能力及減低軟組織黏連。
3. 在後期必須進行強化手指肌力的運動。
4. 有需要時以手指支架固定患指
5. 避免及減少手指過度用力的動作,應間歇休息
6. 需要手指活動頻密的行業,應多作手部伸展運動
