Specific Client Groups

  • Geriatric (Elderly Clients) Rehabilitation
    Geriatric RehabilitationRTC provides assessment and rehabilitation for the older person who has been recently hospitalized and is facing issues such as:

    • Difficulties in performing daily task like showering, dressing, getting in/out of bed.
    • Difficulty moving about the home, or even has fear of falling.
    • Difficulties with memory, planning or just organizing their schedule

  • Neuro-Rehabilitation (Strokes / Brain Injury)
    AMPSAfter a neurological event like a stroke, clients usually have difficulties with motor control, which can include decreased strength, sensory loss and sometimes even cognitive changes such as mental fatigue, depth perception issues. RTC provides comprehensive assessments and rehabilitation to address these issues. Using standardised assessments and treatment such as the Assessment on Motor and Proces Skills (AMPS) and Neuro Development Treatment Approach, RTC will assist client to master their daily task once more.

  • Orthopedic Conditions (Fractures)
    A fracture can hinder a client from moving about or doing their daily task. RTC provides training to assist clients with fractures on how to perform these daily tasks such as bathing without re-injuring themselves. RTC will liase with the client’s doctor as to when the client can be retrained to use the limb again, to regain their strength and movement.
  • Musculoskeletal Conditions (Myofascial Pain)
    Myofascial Pain (MPS) is a condition characterized by chronic and, sometimes, severe pain found in any skeletal muscle of the body. The symptoms can range from referred or radiating pain through myofascial trigger points to specific pains in other areas of the body to just localized pain at the site of the trigger point. The pain may be associated with fatigue and sleep disturbances; poor posture when performing certain movements; or from a general lack of physical conditioning.

    A form of therapy called myofascial release, using deep gentle fascia manipulation and massage, is one of the most effective ways to relieve pain.

  • What is Myofascial Release?
    Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore and increase active range of motion. This essential “time element” combined with a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a muscle fibres to elongate. This in turn improves the blood flow within tissues and eases stored up reservoirs of respiratory by-products to be excreted through the circulatory system.

    Conditions that benefit from Myofascial release include: Frozen shoulders, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis), Golfers’ Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis), Trigger Thumb or finger, Tension headaches, generalized back aches, knee and calf pain, just to mention a few.

    The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments utilizing a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

  • Hands-On Treatment
    Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
