Department of Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy aims to help you to optimise your mobility, function and independence.

Physiotherapists work with the multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers in SGH to provide holistic care that is aligned with our patients' goals. We perform thorough assessments and design individualised treatment plans that may incorporate manual therapy, exercises and/or the use of electro-physical modalities to optimise recovery.
