Why Many Skip Physiotherapy Sessions
Often, physiotherapy does not cross our minds until a medical professional refers us to one after an injury. However, physiotherapy is not only for those injured. From a neck sprain while sleeping to chronic pain and conditions such as cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s, physiotherapy can help children, adults and seniors maintain and regain mobility and strength, alleviate pain, and improve their quality of life.
While many Singaporeans know the benefits of physiotherapy, many of us delay, skip or are tempted to skip these sessions. This may be due to cost or discomfort during and after performing the exercises.
In most cases, several sessions of physiotherapy will be required for a full recovery or visible results. This can be discouraging for those expecting a quick recovery. We may also find the frequent travelling to and fro time-consuming, costly and troublesome especially for those already facing mobility issues.

Recover with Physiotherapy in the Comfort of Home
Many Singaporeans who need physiotherapy don’t realise that physiotherapy can be done at home.
By having qualified physiotherapists conduct the session one-to-one in the comfort of your home, you can feel more at ease, receive personalised care and recover better, without having to travel or wait at hospitals or clinics. This can be a more convenient and safer alternative, especially for those who face obstacles getting to therapy facilities or have limited mobility. Skipping the commute means that you can save cost on transport as well.
With the option of home therapy, more will be able and encouraged to continue physiotherapy sessions and prevent potential health complications from developing.

Top questions about Physiotherapy
What do physiotherapists do?
Physiotherapists are allied health professionals who have an in-depth knowledge of how the body works and specialised hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat injury and disability. Trained to pinpoint the root cause of injuries and other ailments, a physiotherapist will first assess your holistic health and wellbeing, before determining the kind of movements and exercises you can and should do to aid in recovery, taking into consideration a multitude of factors including your individual needs, conditions and mobility.
A physiotherapist may use different approaches to treat and manage your condition, including movement and exercise, manual therapy and hydrotherapy.
Who needs physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is suitable for all ages and can benefit you at any time in your life. While it is commonly associated with musculoskeletal issues, you don’t have to be injured for physiotherapy to benefit you. Physiotherapy extends beyond that and can actually help with managing long-term medical conditions such as asthma, preparing for a sporting event or even childbirth.
Physiotherapists can help to improve various conditions:
- Neurological: stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, spinal cord injuries, vestibular dysfunction, traumatic brain injuries
- Neuromusculoskeletal: back pain, arthritis, sports injuries, whiplash associated disorder, rotator cuff tears, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ)
- Cardiovascular: chronic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis (CF), post-myocardial infarction (MI), rehabilitation after a heart attack
- Respiratory: asthma, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
- Pediatric conditions: developmental delays, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy
- Women’s health and pelvic floor dysfunction: urinary incontinence, lymphedema
- Nervous: carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sports-related: concussion, tennis elbow

How long does a physiotherapy visit last?
Every Homage Home Physiotherapy Visit is one-hour long (60-minutes).
What is the difference between physiotherapy and occupational therapy?
Physiotherapy focuses on treating you and your loved one’s physical impairment (body movement and function). Physiotherapists are trained extensively in body mechanics and use treatment techniques that are designed to reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability. For someone recovering from a stroke, a physiotherapist might develop exercises to strengthen the muscles for walking, standing, and other movements.
Occupational therapy focuses on holistic wellness as well as finer motor and cognitive skills. The goal is to help you and your loved one perform daily activities and meaningful interactions with maximum independence possible. The treatment plan may include physical exercise, therapeutic adaptations as well as home modifications. For someone recovering from a stroke, our occupational therapist might develop treatments to help with the management of daily activities like eating, showering and getting dressed.
Who are the Homage physiotherapists?
Homage Physiotherapists are individuals passionate and dedicated in caring for seniors and families in need. 100% Singaporean, they are certified under the Ministry of Health’s Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC).
Our physiotherapists specialised in diverse areas from orthopedic (conditions of the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints) to geriatric (age-related or progressive conditions).
How many physiotherapy visits would I need?
Every individual’s recovery and rehabilitation journey is different. The physiotherapist will be able to advise you of an appropriate treatment plan and frequency after the initial assessment.
Should I prepare anything for my physiotherapy visit?
There is no need for any preparation.
If you have any doctor’s referral letter, previous physiotherapy/ medical reports or investigations (X-ray or MRI), we would recommend sharing these information with your physiotherapist for a more thorough understanding of your condition for therapy treatment.
What should I expect during my first physiotherapy session?
During your first visit, our physiotherapist will first assess your health and physical condition, understand the goals, develop and advise a personalised therapy treatment plan which can be completed in the home setting.
If time permits, the physiotherapist will also conduct these exercises with you during the first visit.
