Understanding Orthopaedics and Specialised Elderly Care

In addition to our home-based physiotherapy services, we extend our expertise to offer specialised home-based orthopaedic elderly care. Let's delve deeper into the realm of orthopaedics and explore the potential benefits it holds for you or your loved one.


Orthopaedics is a medical discipline that concentrates on the comprehensive care of the skeletal system, encompassing bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons. Its primary focus is on the treatment and prevention of pain and injuries related to various musculoskeletal conditions. These conditions include joint pain, soft tissue injuries (muscles, tendons and ligaments), back and neck pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sports injuries, knee pain and hip pain.


Orthopaedists are specialists in addressing a wide array of musculoskeletal issues and are often engaged in pre or post-surgery treatments. Not sure whether you require the expertise of an orthopaedist or a physiotherapist? No worries. During your initial consultation with us, we'll assess your specific needs and guide you towards the most suitable treatment plan.

The Comprehensive Benefits of Physiotherapy

At The Well Balanced Centre, our orthopaedic care is designed to achieve several key objectives:


1. Assess patients’ pre-surgery to identify and treat issues, optimising pre-surgical function.

2. Provide effective treatment to facilitate early mobilisation.

3. Minimise pain and discomfort both before and after surgery.

4. Tailor rehabilitation programs to align with individual goals.

5. Implement measures to prevent subsequent falls and fractures.

Unveiling the Components of Physiotherapy Treatment

One common query we receive is about the components of physiotherapy treatment. The answer is that we tailor our care to suit your unique needs. While each treatment plan is individualised, a standard session typically includes:


- A customised home exercise program to be performed between sessions.

- Assisted functional activity practice, such as walking upstairs or getting up from a chair.

- Balance work to enhance stability.

- Indoor and outdoor mobility practice to address various environments.

- Hazard spotting and assessment of mobility aids to promote safety.

- Hands-on techniques aimed at reducing immediate pain.

Your Initial Assessment: A Roadmap to Progress

During your initial assessment at The Well Balanced Centre, our care specialists engage in a comprehensive discussion with you. Among the various aspects covered, one crucial element is the identification of your goals. We encourage you to set both larger and smaller goals. For instance, a larger goal could be walking upstairs with a handrail, while a smaller goal might involve safely getting up and down from your chair. The diversity of everyone's goals is acknowledged and respected.


By establishing your goals, we can tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your aspirations. Setting smaller goals is equally important, allowing you to monitor your progress and celebrate achievements along the way.


In addition to goal setting, our initial assessment involves hazard identification, suggestions for mobility aids to prevent future falls and the provision of hands-on care to alleviate immediate pain.
