Rachel wong

Physiotherapist

Rachel joined Sports Solutions to pursue her passion for sports rehabilitation and musculoskeletal physiotherapy.

 

Among her friends, Rachel is known for being someone who excels at sports. At a younger age, she represented her school in Badminton, Football, and Ultimate Frisbee. Rachel also enjoys CrossFit, which is a strength and conditioning program aimed at improving fitness for all. While competing in football, she became fascinated by the way physiotherapy was able to help her injured teammates return stronger than before and become better athletes. Her experience in an outpatient sports setting in the UK helped consolidate this interest and affirmed her aspiration to focus on this area of physiotherapy.

Rachel believes in stepping away from the simplified method of treating symptoms and looking at the whole person for a holistic, multi-faceted and more effective resolution to the problem. Her interests in movement dysfunction and postural impairments help her to locate the source of pain and design individualised programmes that prevent recurrent injury, resulting in better long-term results.

Rachel is qualified in Kinesio taping and combines this with manual techniques as treatment. She loves to help others and is determined to assist all patients in returning to their daily routines and sporting activities as soon as possible.

He specializes in treating sports injuries, as well as devising sports rehabilitation programmes after reconstructive surgeries to the shoulder, knee and ankle joints.

He has also placed 4th at the 2001 Asian Duathlon Championships in Hong Kong and made several podium finishes in the Asian Cup Triathlon Series events over the years while holding down a full time job as a physiotherapist.

Partly as a result of his grueling training regime, Gino needed 3 knee surgeries in 2002 and 2003. After which he made a comeback and placed 4th in the 2005 SEA Games triathlon event.

When not participating, Gino has kept close to sports, travelling widely with the Singapore medical teams for major overseas events such as the various SEA Games, 2002, 2006 Commonwealth Games, the 2006 Asian Games and he is the only local Singaporean physiotherapist to have been to both the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics. Gino is also one of only two certified Kinesio Taping Instuctors (CKTI) in Singapore and teaches the Kinesio Taping Level 1,2 & 3 courses. He is also a frequent speaker at symposiums and sporting events.

While out cycling in April 2013, Gino had an accident and fractured his skull and spine. Thankfully, he is a lot better now and is back working part time. Having neck and back pain? Well, now you know who came back from a broken skull and back.

BYRON

Junior Physiotherapist

Byron graduated in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from Singapore Institute of Technology.

 

Prior to pursuing Physiotherapy, Byron started out as an aspiring dancer and studied in School of the Arts, Singapore. He specializes in both ballet and modern dance. Through dance, he developed a fascination and passion for the human body and the limits it can be pushed to. Similarly to sports, dance requires the body to go into unusual and awkward positions which puts excessive load on the human body, resulting in injuries. Throughout his years of dancing, he has experienced and seen many dancers getting injured, due to  the lack of knowledge and awareness of how their bodies function. This inspired him to become a physiotherapist to be able to share the knowledge of how the body works and to manage such injuries.

 

Byron believes that with his experience in dance, he is able to provide a different perspective in treating patients, as well as giving patients a better understanding of how their bodies work. He hopes he is able to make a change in his patients life and return them to what they love doing.
