Physiotherapy might be a vague concept to most people. What is it exactly? The Cambridge Dictionary defines physiotherapy as “the treatment of problems of the muscles, joints, or nerves, especially using exercises or by rubbing or moving the affected body parts.” Some modes of physiotherapy include

  • physical exercises
  • manual therapy
  • hydrotherapy
  • heat therapy
  • and acupuncture.

Physiotherapy can be helpful to different people of different ages. It is most commonly sought by

  • athletes suffering from sports injuries
  • workers with chronic neck or back pain
  • and elderly folks who need to maintain mobility.

Even if you don’t fall under any of these categories, you might need physiotherapy if you are suffering from pain, ailments, or reduced movement affecting any of the following areas:

  • Bones, joints, and soft tissue – back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and sports injuries
  • Brain or nervous system – movement problems resulting from a stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), or Parkinson’s disease
  • Heart and circulation – rehabilitation after a heart attack
  • Lungs and breathing – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis

The cost of physiotherapy in Singapore varies depending on the type and duration of the treatment. In addition, home care options and the level of expertise of the physiotherapist may also affect the price of each session.

On average, the cost of physiotherapy in Singapore ranges from S$100 – S$300 per 45-minute to 1-hour session.

  • Ashford Medical Centre provides various health and wellness services, including physiotherapy with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.

    It focuses on providing high-quality services by understanding and prioritizing the patient's physical, mental, and medical needs and offering therapies catering to their specific requirements

    As it’s a comprehensive health centre, the out-patients also have the opportunity to consult with a general physician and receive any pain relief medication, combined with physiotherapy, for faster recovery.

    Several associations accredit it, including CHAS, Medisave, and Pioneer Generation. 


    • Super Inductive System (SIS) for non-invasive, convenient, and faster physiotherapy: Besides high-quality manual physiotherapy services, Ashford Medical Centre also offers the Super Inductive System (SIS), which uses the high-intensity electromagnetic field for massaging the impacted area. This technology works faster than manual therapy, accelerating pain reduction in 5 to 10 sessions. It’s hassle-free as compared to manual therapy, as patients don’t necessarily need to change into a gown. This technology can be used for virtually every musculoskeletal and nerve-related pain type. 
    • European Spinal Traction Therapy for safely fixing spinal pain: Another cutting-edge technology used at Ashford Medical Centre’s physiotherapy department is Spinal Traction Therapy. This device stretches and decompresses the spine to relieve pain and improve posture. It can help treat pain from spinal conditions like sciatica, degenerative disc, facet joint syndrome, and chronic lower back pain. 
    • Seasoned physiotherapists and doctors who work together to find solutions: Ashford Medical Centre’s physiotherapists and doctors come together to find the most effective pain rehabilitation solutions. They advise patients on whether their pain can be managed with just therapy or a combination of therapy and medicine. More importantly, all the therapists and doctors at the clinic are trained to prioritize communication with clients, which ensures clarity and transparency.
