Neurological Physiotherapy Management focuses on restoring lost muscle function, improving balance, coordination, and fine motor functions, and helping patients walk or move around. Tailor-made treatment plans are created for patients with neurodegenerative or neurotraumatic conditions, emphasizing empathy, education, personalized care, and transparent communication. In the world of Neuro-Physiotherapy, every patient’s journey is marked not only by physical challenges but also by emotional concerns. The hospital empowers patients to embark on their recovery journey with confidence.
For parents, this journey transcends mere observation; they become active participants in their child’s progress. The guidance and education imparted by the dedicated team become invaluable tools that parents can integrate into their daily routines, fostering an environment of continuous growth and improvement. King’s Physiotherapy Clinic partners with parents to unlock the potential of every child, regardless of physical challenges.
Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation at King’s College Hospital specializes in assessing, diagnosing, and treating problems related to the pelvic floor muscles and the pelvic floor organs (the bladder, bowel, and uterus). It involves physical methods of strengthening and/or relaxing the muscles of the pelvic floor to help improve core stability and control over urination, bowel movements, and sexual function. Research supports pelvic floor therapy as a minimally invasive treatment option that should be used as a first-line method for treating various types of pelvic floor dysfunction, including issues such as pelvic organ prolapse, urinary or faecal incontinence, and painful intercourse.
Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy at the hospital specializes in the rehabilitation and prevention of common complications for patients with diseases and injuries in the heart and lungs. After cardiac disease or cardiorespiratory surgery, patients usually experience pain in the chest area, fatigue, and decreased exercise tolerance until recovery. Physiotherapy plays a significant role in improving the patient’s condition, movement, quality of life, and muscular strength. Treatment includes deep breathing exercises, coughing and breathing strategies, and muscle strengthening.
King’s College Hospital invites the community to experience the power of physiotherapy at Park Heights Clinics, where specialized healthcare services are designed to enhance the well-being of patients and the community at large.
