Physical Therapy in Singapore

Physical Therapist

This branch of physical therapy focuses on the problems from the muscular skeletal system (muscles, bones, ligaments or tendons). Physical therapy in this area deals with diagnosing, managing and treating injuries and problems from the muscular and skeletal methods and rehabilitating right after orthopedic operations, as well.

Carpal Fractures and Ligamentous Instabilities

Carpal Fractures

Carpal Fractures

The human wrist joint is a complex arrangement of small bones and ligaments that form a mobile yet stable link from the powerful forearm to the hand. The normally functioning carpus can position the hand precisely relative to the forearm and provides remarkably stable transmission of forces. Motion and stability of […]

Knee Fractures in Singapore

The knee is the joint between the femur (thigh bone) and the tibial (lower leg). In front of the knee joint is the patella (kneecap), a bone set in the tendon of the big quadriceps muscle which straightens the leg. Knee fractures are injuries to one or more of these bones close to the knee […]

Running and Ankle injury

Running is one of the easiest and most popular ways to stay fit. It is also one of the easiest ways to develop an injury. Running injuries are common and often effect the hips, knees, ankles, and feet of runners. The impact and stress of running is sometimes hard on the muscles and joints; especially […]

Skiing injury and ACL tear

Both skiing and snowboarding can result in sports injuries, but they tend to have slightly different injury patterns. Skiers are more likely to have knee injuries (from twisting motion during falls), and snowboarders tend to have more upper body injuries (as a result of falling on an outstretched hand). There are also many injuries common […]

Sprains and Strains

Although the terms sprain and strain are used loosely and have no precise clinical definition, a sprain generally refers to an injury to a ligament – one of the tough, fibrous cords within a joint that connects the bones together, and a strain refers to muscle injury.

Sprains and strains often occur together in or […]

Glenoid Labrum

The glenoid labrum provides another static restraint to GH motion. The labrum is a fibrous ring attached to the glenoid articular surface through a fibrocartilagenous transition zone. The labrum functions as an anchor point for the GH ligaments and the biceps tendon; it also deepens the glenoid socket and enhances stability.

This wedge-shaped, fibrous structure […]

Sternoclavicular Joint

The SC joint is the only true joint that connects the upper extremity to the axial skeleton. It is a gliding joint with little inherent bony stability. Substantial incongruity exists between the two articular surfaces, but the interposition of an intra-articular disc compensates for this. This disc has not shown severe degenerative alterations until the […]

Anatomy of The Lumbar Back Muscles-Thoracolumbar Fascia

The thoracolumbar fascia has three layers—anterior, middle, and posterior—creating an envelope for the muscles of the lumbar spine. The anterior layer originates from the anterior surfaces of the transverse processes of the lumbar spine and intertransverse ligaments, and it covers the anterior surface of the quadratus lumborum.

The middle layer is attached to the tips […]

Passive dorsiflexion

Procedure.

Press the thumb upwards by a supination of the wrist.

Common mistakes.

The ankle and subtalar joints are not stabilized. Normal functional anatomy:

• Rallge: 10-15° • End-feel: hard ligamentous • Umitiu8 structures: – plantar midtarsal ligaments – plantar fascia.
