I practice combat sports and I have accumulated a number of injuries over the years. Of all physios I’ve tried in Hong Kong and abroad, Aggie is clearly the best for me. She combines serious manipulation with thorough rehab work and has brought me back to top form more than once.
Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.
I graduated as a physiotherapist from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2002. After graduating, I worked for two and a half years at the Hospital Authority in different settings including wards, out-patient clinics, as well as in the extended rehabilitation care unit and community services. In 2005, I obtained a Masters Degree in Sports Physiotherapy from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and finished the Diploma in Acupuncture and Moxibustion at the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The following year, I got certified as a DMA Clinical Pilates clinician in 2006.
My experience in sports physiotherapy spans across many international and local sporting events such as the Asian Games, East Asian Games Trail Walker, Standard Chartered Marathon, International Frisbee Tournament, and other rugby and football events. I was the team physiotherapist for Happy Valley and Buler Rangers, Division 1 football teams in Hong Kong, from 2002 to 2004, and have been the team physiotherapist for Causeway Bay Rugby Team since 2005.
What are your interests?
I keep active by participating in different sports activities from dancing, badminton, basketball, hiking to jogging. I also like to cook and bake cakes, which is also very ‘therapeutic’ for me.
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.
My personal recovery journey began in November 1994 when I tore my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and the meniscus on my right knee during an intercollegiate basketball match. It was a blessing in disguise because it was through this personal injury that I began being keen in this profession and started studying physiotherapy in 1999. Being an ex-patient, as well as a physiotherapist, I’m always happy to share my patients’ woes and maximise their recovery efforts with physiotherapy and sports rehabilitation.
What is your area of expertise?
Sports rehabilitation for the knee, ankle and shoulder. Core muscle training by Pilates.
What is the most fulfilling part of this job?
I really focus on the holistic care treatment for my patients during our one-on-one sessions. I also feel blessed about having a good boss and colleagues who share my passions, you can call us a big, happy, physio family here at Sports and Spinal.
