Core Concepts provides home-based therapy for neurological conditions such as stroke as well as post-surgical rehabilitation for joint replacements such as Total Hip Replacement and Total Knee Replacement.
When a loved one suffers from a stroke (What is Stroke?), it is a traumatic event. The loss of normal functionality after a stroke makes what once was a simple activity like walking, shopping, or simply getting out of bed not longer so simple.
Once the stroke is stablised, the road to recovery can begin. Recovering from a stroke to regain as much functionality as before depends on how well the brain is able to ‘re-learn’ using the unaffected parts of the brain to ‘take over’ the work of the affected parts.
This relearning is referred to as brain plasticity, also known as neuroplasticity. It suggests that the location of a given function in the brain (for example, speech, movement) can move to another area of the brain. This transfer can be activated by repetitive learning. This is done by sprouting of new synaptic connections and creating new pathways to unaffected parts of the brain.
For Total Hip / Knee Replacement
We provide rehabilitation physiotherapy to help manage the swelling and towards functional mobility. Our programmes provides for
- Provide you with a continuation of patient care.
- Prevention of complications by continuous monitoring.
- Maintain and improve your newly acquired range of motion.
- Provide proper advice and progression of exercise.
In addition to Stroke, Core Concepts manages other neurological conditions such as:

- Multiple sclerosis
Core Concepts also provide home-based physiotherapy for a selected range of non-neurological conditions, such as:
- Fall Preventions
- Hip-Replacement Rehabilitation
- Knee-Replacement Rehabilitation
For more information, please contact us. We will arrange an interview consultation session with our physiotherapist. In this way, we are able to give you an overview of the rehabilitation process.
Regaining full functionality after a stroke then is a matter on which part of the brain is stimulated, how it is stimulated and how frequently it is stimulated to relearn how to carry out the function.
This relearning depends on two key factors
- An effective Rehabilitation Plan on how to stimulate the brain.
- A high frequency of stimulation. The more frequently the brain is stimulated, the better and faster it is able to relearn.
Not enough stimulation or an ineffective rehabilitation plan may not be sufficient for the brain to relearn.
Core Concepts developed the Home Therapy Rehabilitation Model (HTRM) to take into consideration the desire for a loved ones’ optimal recovery in an affordable manner, without compromising on the quality of care. HTRM consists of three key components – Assessment, Planning and Supervision.
Moving from one key milestone on the road of recovery to the next requires the condition and status of the client to be correctly assessed. This is crucial to the correct planning of the rehabilitation therapy. Once a rehabilitation plan is formulated, the client undertake a series of therapy sessions under close supervision.
Once the next milestone is achieved, the client is reassessed and the plan revised if necessary before continuing with the supervised therapy sessions.
We also treat a range of other neurological conditions aside from stroke.
Core Concepts also provides home-based physiotherapy for selected range of non-neurological conditions such as:
- Falls Prevention
- Hip Replacement Rehabilitation
- Knee Replacement Rehabilitation
