The Physio+ Story
A member of the Singapore Physiotherapy Association
Upon graduation in 2008, I worked in a local hospital as a Physiotherapist. I was very blessed to meet good mentors who guided me. They developed my interest in the area of musculoskeletal health, which is the specialization in muscle and joint problems, especially spinal conditions that commonly cause back pain and neck pain.
One of my biggest challenges then was to establish a deeper relationship with my patients as I have little control over the duration of their appointments. Many times, it felt like a touch-and-go service. I debated for a long time and finally decided to set up my own clinic with the purpose of providing personalized and quality care to my patients. With encouragement from many of my patients and my loved ones, I founded Physio+ in 2017.
I name my clinic Physio+ because I believe that the healing process is more than just providing the physio aspect. I strongly believe that as a physiotherapist, I also need to provide empathy, a listening ear and plenty of encouragement to our patients as part of their recovery process. Throughout my years, I have met countless patients suffering from long term pain and discomfort but were eventually able to regain their mobility and improve their quality of life. My greatest achievement is to see their smile as they walk out my door for the final time.
At Physio+, I wish to create a safe environment where my patients can come and seek treatment, a place where they become my friends, where they immediately feel at ease when they step in, and a community where they can share their stories with each other.
“The natural healing force in each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.”
