The Pain Relief Practice

Pain is a natural and protective biological function, red-flagging imbalances or dysfunctions in our body. Pain signals are transmitted from the injured area to the brain via electrical impulses, helping the brain to respond appropriately. While this is a beneficial response, it can sometimes be too much and hinder a patient’s ability to recover from an injury. 

HelloPhysio’s pain relief practice helps patients heal faster from traumatic injuries and manage chronic pain conditions to improve their quality of life.

Through an evidence-based understanding of injury presentation, our physiotherapy and rehab teams are committed to providing insightful and innovative treatments for clients. We offer the latest modalities in rehabilitation, strength and condition programs, sports physiotherapy, and musculoskeletal health at our pain and physiotherapy center in Singapore.

When the COVID pandemic hit globally, rehabilitation and pain relief practice was mandated to go online as physical therapy care at our physio clinics was restricted. The use of digital communication to provide quality treatments ensured continuity and accessibility of care. From that, we realized the effectiveness and the efficiency of telehealth for physiotherapy and rehab.

Research supports telehealth’s benefits to maintain positive client outcomes, especially when it comes to physiotherapy treatment and rehab in Singapore. We all know that life post pandemic has changed and we will continue to provide Telehealth to clients who meet the needs of online consultation.

Our Approach to Physiotherapy for Pain Relief

Pain and physiotherapy go hand in hand. It is often an unpleasant experience associated with an acute traumatic incidence or repetitive musculoskeletal dysfunction that brings patients into our pain clinic. Pain was once viewed as an inevitable consequence of an injury or disorder, but it doesn’t have to be!

At HelloPhysio, our patient-centered approach to pain management physiotherapy combines traditional physiotherapy treatment, with trailblazing technologies and decades of experience. Our team works to activate the body’s natural mechanisms to reduce the intensity and duration of both acute and chronic pain.

Patient education and empowerment is at the core of our philosophy of pain relief therapy to improve the body’s optimal function. We feel it is important to take a holistic approach to pain management by incorporating technology, Clinical Pilates and alternative therapies, as required.

Our knowledgeable physiotherapists assess and diagnose the cause of the pain. We help to educate our patients on self-management strategies and exercise prescriptions as well as lifestyle modifications to prevent future injuries. We offer a wide range of effective physiotherapy treatments, from manual therapy to the latest evidence-based technologies like INDIBA® Activ, Shockwave Therapy, or LightStim® Red Light.

Understanding the Common Mechanisms of Why You Experience Pain

Seeing a physiotherapist can be integral to your rehabilitation from an injury or managing chronic pain relief adequately. 

Scar tissue formation is the body’s natural response to trauma, injury, or surgery. When the body experiences tissue damage, the body will produce collagen fibers that are woven together to form a scar. This scar tissue can be painful if the wound is deep or if the surrounding nerves are damaged.

As scar tissue builds up, it can become thick and tight, leading to a decrease in range of motion and an increase in pain. Scar tissue can also cause inflammation, which can lead to more pain. Scar tissue formation can also create a cycle of pain as the scar tissue itself can cause more injuries and further pain.


Weakened or soft bone structures can lead to pain due to the increased risk of fractures. When bones become weak or brittle, they are more susceptible to injury and fractures, which can be extremely painful.

Weak bones can also result in muscle and joint pain as the muscles and joints are forced to support the weakened bones. Bone pain can also be caused by inflammation in the joints or soft tissues due to weakened bones. In addition, weakened bones can cause pain in the surrounding nerves, which can increase over time. 


Restricted range of motion can cause pain because the muscles and other soft tissues become tight and inflamed. When the range of motion is limited, the body will compensate by tightening the surrounding muscles and ligaments, leading to a decrease in flexibility and an increase in pain.

The restricted range of motion can also cause strain on the joints, leading to inflammation and pain.

As the inflammation increases, so does the pain. In addition, the lack of flexibility can make it difficult to move and perform everyday activities, further contributing to pain.

Muscle inflammation occurs when muscles are torn, and the body releases chemicals and nutrient-rich immune cells to the area to help with the healing.

Inflammation is a normal and necessary part of the healing process, but prolonged muscle inflammation can be damaging. This is especially when a joint or muscle is moved or pressure is applied. Pain can also be caused by imbalances and tight muscles.

Ultimately, it’s a rehab practice rule of thumb that you make an appointment with a physiotherapist if your condition lasts beyond two weeks. As always, early intervention is always the best solution to relieve your discomfort and to ensure your body recovers fast and pain-free.

HelloPhysio paves the way with both traditional physical therapy and the latest technologies to reduce pain, re-establish movement patterns, and activate muscles so that you can return to your daily life.

Physiotherapy treatment plans are different for each client customized to fit an individual’s needs, injury and lifestyle. Treatments from HelloPhysio may be eligible for claims through your health insurance provider.
