The team of PhysioActive is versatile and pretty international. There are people from all over the world in each clinic, bringing their immense knowledge and skills to the table.
The Expert Team
Several PhysioActive branches are dispersed across Singapore and they all boast qualified workers.
The main establishment is located at 1 Orchard Blvd, #11-05 Camden Medical Centre, Singapore 248649. Its director is Denis Mecklenburg B.Sc. He is a health, sports, and golf therapist with an interest in shoulder injuries. He is from Germany but he moved to Singapore back in 2008. Before his relocation, he attained his bachelor’s degree in the Netherlands and worked in one of Switzerland’s biggest rehabilitation clinics.
Another member of the team, Brigitte Lichtenberger B.Sc. is a manual therapist and foot reflexologist. She is an expert at dry needling and a certified wheelchair sports coach. Brigitte got her degree in Switzerland (Basel), where she is originally from. Later, she gained lots of experience working for different private clinics and hospitals in her homeland. In 2006, she came to Singapore where she continued her career, and a year later she joined PhysioActive.
Other members of the Orchard branch are Andrew Storan B.Sc. (Hons), Liam Mc Ginley MSc, MCSP, Padraig Corbett B.Sc, Leah Kieffer MPT, B.Sc. (Hons), Breifne McKeever B.Sc (Hons), and Louis Platt B.Sc. (Hons).
Every woman goes through different stages in her life that bring the need for special care. First is puberty when the female body changes overnight and experiences many transformations.
Next is motherhood, yet another challenge. Prenatal care is more than necessary to ensure that both the mother and foetus will be all right. Oestrogen levels are at their highest. Then, once the baby is born, hormonal levels drop and other problems might ensue.
Pelvic floor issues are another common concern, affecting women of all ages. That said, incontinence often accompanies them. The specialists at PhysioActive are trained and prepared to assist any of these issues in a private setting without compromising patients’ safety or hurting their respect.
The physiotherapists are skilled and educated to deliver different types of clinical massage. This can be summed up with myofascial trigger point therapy, which focuses on alleviating pain, and remedial massage, which is all about injury recovery. Other forms that are available at the clinic are pre-natal massage and lymphatic drainage massage. The former soothe fatigue, swelling, and aches, whereas the latter helps the body get rid of waste and improve circulation.
This part covers therapy for a variety of health conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injury. The main goal of the treatment here is to improve movements and posture, take care of the joints, and control pain. Other benefits worth mentioning are better balance, improved flexibility, and falls prevention.
There are a host of procedures for the management of scoliosis, neck and lower back pain treatment, osteoporosis prevention, pelvic girdle issues just to name a few. PhysioActive is proud to offer shockwave therapy to its patients and is one of the few clinics in Singapore that have this option.
The personnel’s goal here is to improve and optimise one’s sports performance. It works by assessing their skills and massaging certain muscle groups after most workouts. It currently focuses on golf, running, conditioning and strength training, and injury management.
