Understanding orthopaedics and specialised elderly care

In addition to our home-based physiotherapy services, we extend our expertise to offer specialised orthopaedic elderly care in the comfort of your home. Delve into the world of orthopaedics with us and explore the potential benefits it offers for you or your loved ones.


Orthopaedics is a medical discipline focusing on comprehensive care for the skeletal system, including bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons. Its primary emphasis is on treating and preventing pain and injuries associated with various musculoskeletal conditions. These conditions encompass 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 specialise in addressing a diverse range of musculoskeletal issues, often involved in pre or post-surgery treatments. Unsure whether you need an orthopaedist or a physiotherapist? No need to worry. During your initial consultation, we will assess your specific needs and guide you toward the most suitable treatment plan.

The holistic advantages of physiotherapy

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


  • Conducting pre-surgery assessments to identify and address issues, optimising pre-surgical function.

  • Delivering effective treatment to facilitate early mobilisation.

  • Alleviating pain and discomfort both before and after surgery.

  • Customising rehabilitation programs to align with individual goals.

  • Implementing proactive measures to prevent subsequent falls and fractures.

  • Elements of physiotherapy treatment

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, a crucial element is identifying your goals. We encourage you to set both larger and smaller goals, allowing for a diverse range of aspirations.


By establishing your goals, we can tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your aspirations. Setting smaller goals is equally important, enabling you to monitor 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.
