OUR PROGRAMS

At the Clinic

Individual O.T and P.T sessions

We provide physical rehabilitation services for people with musculoskeletal and neurological problems from all ages.

O.T: Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement”.(WFOT 2012)

P.T: Physiotherapy provides services to individuals and populations in circumstances where movement and function are, or may be, threatened by ageing, injury, pain, diseases, disorders, conditions or environmental factors. Physiotherapy promotes the active participation in society through the development, maintenance and restoration of health, movement capacity, physical activity and functional ability throughout the lifespan. Physiotherapy services are provided within all the spheres of health & well-being (e.g. health promotion, prevention, habilitation, rehabilitation and palliation) and encompass physical, psychological, emotional, and social factors.  Physiotherapy involves the interaction of the physiotherapist with the patient/client including their family, care givers and relevant other health professionals, and communities, in a process that rests on the assessment of movement potential.
