Physiotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, arthritis, and sports injuries. Physiotherapy can also be used to improve movement and function after an injury.

Physiotherapy is provided by qualified physiotherapists. In Singapore, physiotherapy is regulated by the Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC) under the Ministry of Health (MOH). Physiotherapists in Singapore must be registered with the council in order to practice.

According to the Singapore Ministry of Health, the cost of physiotherapy in Singapore can range from $50 to $200 per session. There are a number of ways to pay for physiotherapy in Singapore, including through private health insurance, Medisave, or out-of-pocket.
