Physiotherapy aims to help you to optimize your mobility, function and independence. Physiotherapy specializes in human movement; Physiotherapists strive to improve an individual’s quality of life and independence within the community through treatment and community support. Physiotherapists strive to improve an individual’s quality of life and independence within the community through:
- Throughout Nigeria
- Group treatment and health promotion classes e.g. Hydrotherapy, gentle exercise and fit ball classes
- Domiciliary (home based) services when patients are unable to access our centers.
Our physiotherapists work with the multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers to provide holistic care that is aligned with our patients’ goals. We perform thorough assessments and design individualized treatment plans that may incorporate manual therapy, exercises and/or the use of electro-physical modalities to optimize recovery.
- Physiotherapists work in the wards, looking after patients admitted to the hospital, as well as run outpatient clinics.
- To improve the standard of our evidence-based clinical practice and quality of our Physiotherapy services, our Physiotherapists are also involved in doing clinical research and quality-improvement projects.
- Our Physiotherapists are involved in regular in-house training and professional courses to upgrade our skills and knowledge.

The benefits of physiotherapy
Physiotherapy improves the recovery rate of patients who have undergone surgery. Research is currently being undertaken in Primus Hospital to quantify the scale of this benefit. Physiotherapy facilitates self management by the patient which empowers them in their healing and recovery process. Physiotherapy facilitates peak movement and peak mobility for the patient so that they can live independent lives and are not as dependent on community support and resources.
At Primus, we pride ourselves on being the hospital that you would refer your friends and loved ones to due to the level of care and expertise we offer.

Occupational Therapists assess and treat patients (adults and children) being admitted for elective surgery or treatment. The aim is to enable people to achieve as much as possible for themselves and to do the things that are important to them. Occupational therapists work with people who may have physical, mental or social problems, either from birth or as a result of an accident, illness or ageing. They are aware of the impact on people’s lives and their ability to participate in society.
Occupational Therapists discuss any personal important issues with regard to how patients will manage their everyday activities of daily living within their home environment such as, washing, dressing, getting around indoors and outdoors, bathing, preparing and eating meals, or participating in work, school or leisure activities.
