Physiotherapy

The department is located in the annex with its own car park area. There is a ramp access to the reception.

Physiotherapy encompasses rehabilitation, injury prevention and health promotion. Physiotherapy is the treatment method that focuses on the science of movement and helps people to restore, maintain and maximize their physical strength, function, motion and overall well-being by addressing the underlying physical issues.

The CFB team of experienced physiotherapists provide a wide range of treatment to both, in-patients and out-patients.

On first attendance, a comprehensive assessment is done of the patients condition and a therapy plan is discussed with the patient and instituted by the physiotherapist. Progress is then regularly assessed and documented.

The Department has a whole range of therapy applications:  thermal therapy; ultrasound therapy; mobilization; traction; soft tissue  manipulation; electrotherapy; etc.

In addition there is a separate exercise room where active physical therapy is imparted, under supervision.
