What are your opening hours?
We open 9 am to 7 pm on Mondays to Fridays, and 9 am to 2 pm on Saturdays.
How long are the physiotherapy sessions?
Sessions range from 30 mins, 45 mins, 60mins. First consultations are 45 mins and the physiotherapist will determine the duration of subsequent sessions.
Do I need a doctor’s referral for physiotherapy?
In Singapore, a doctor’s referral is not necessary unless your insurance plan or company requires a referral in order for you to be reimbursed for physiotherapy sessions. The physiotherapist can evaluate your condition, make a diagnosis and plan your treatment independently.
Do you accept payment from insurance?
Yes, depending on which company and upon checking eligibility. Please contact us at (65) 67340245 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further enquiries.
What should I bring or wear?
Please bring along doctor’s referral slips, medical reports, X-Rays and MRIs. If your problem is in the low back or legs, please bring a pair of shorts. For biomechanical podiatry consultation, please bring shorts, regular work shoes and runners, and any orthotics you have been wearing.
What qualifications do physiotherapists have?
Physiotherapists at Physionique have at least a 4-year Bachelor's degree in Physiotherapy. There is a 3-year diploma course in Physiotherapy in Singapore. Most countries offer either a 3-year or 4-year physiotherapy program.
What are the common conditions seen at Physionique?
Common conditions are neck and back pain, mostly caused by computer work, and sports injuries affecting the back, shoulders, knees, ankles and feet. We also help our patients to rehabilitate and recover after orthopaedic surgery for knee ligament reconstruction, shoulder ligament repair, tendon repairs, back surgery and bone fractures.
What is the difference between Physiotherapy and Chiropractic?
Physiotherapy and Chiropractic use different methods for treating similar conditions such as sports injuries, neck and back pain. Chiropractors specialize in spinal manipulations or high-velocity, quick thrust adjustments, which is the backbone of their practice. Only some physiotherapists use manipulation, especially those who have had a post-graduate degree in manipulative physiotherapy.
The majority use gentler techniques such as mobilizations and other manual (hands-on) techniques to achieve the same effect. Well-trained physiotherapists will analyze the effects of daily activities, movements and postures on the body as a whole and in relation to the injured area. They will assess the body for mal-alignment and imbalances and use a range of techniques including therapeutic massage, exercise therapy, traction, heat, posture correction and preventive methods to find a holistic solution to address the core issues.
