Tell us about your background in physiotherapy:

I graduated from The University of Nottingham (UK) in 2016, and started my physiotherapy career at a public hospital here in Hong Kong. During my rotations, I gained experience in a wide variety of specialties including acute orthopaedics, neurology, women’s health, sports rehabilitation, and musculoskeletal therapy.

During these last few years, I have developed interest particularly in sports injury prevention and rehabilitation. During my undergraduate course, I volunteered in different sporting events in the UK, such as cycling and football, and provided on-site physio treatments to athletes. After three years of working, I pursued a Master’s Degree in Sports Medicine and Health Science at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which gave me an opportunity to provide on-field support for the Kitchee female football team.

My current area of special interest is advancing my skills in women’s health physiotherapy. I am looking into several different courses and most recently have achieved a certificate for women’s incontinence treatment.

What are your interests?

I enjoy doing yoga during my spare time. Apart from helping me to calm my body and mind, it also furthers my understanding of body asymmetries and muscle imbalance and allows me to apply it to my clinical practice.

I also like to bake when I am free, it brings me joy when I see my family and friends enjoy my treats.

Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.

When I was 15 years old, I went to study abroad in the UK alone. At first, I was overwhelmed by the culture shock but very quickly I was able to integrate into the new environment. This great experience enabled me to meet a lot of people around the world and as well to brush up on my communication skills. It is very important in my physiotherapy practice to build rapport with my clients in order to truly understand and treat their fundamental problems.

What is your area of expertise?

I believe that every body is different, therefore I aim to provide comprehensive assessment and tailor-made treatments to every client based on individual needs. I usually combine manual therapy and acupuncture with specific exercise prescriptions to tackle the origin of pain and discomfort.

I treat clients with a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including sports-related injuries and work-related pain such as chronic neck and back pain. In addition to that, I am also interested in treating women’s health conditions such as pre and post-natal related problems, and urinary incontinence.

What is the most fulfilling part of this job?

I find it very rewarding to be part of a client’s rehabilitation journey and work together towards their goals. It is fulfilling when I see their quality of life has improved and gradually returned to what they enjoy doing.

What Our Clients Say

It was a wonderful experience with the Physiotherapist, Christy!I had injured my thumb and wrist during yoga and I contacted Christy through her Instagram. She was so professional and healed my thumb by doing acupuncture, massage and exercises. My thumb is doing so much better now and I am still doing the exercises that she patiently taught me! I can finally get back to yoga now!  

Gilly Tsang

Christy is a very professional physiotherapist with great interpersonal skills. I would highly recommend Christy to anyone who suffers lower back pain

Haotian Zhang

Christy helped me go through a painful sports injury with a speedy recovery. She is great!

Jacopo Pesavento

An ankle injury last year coupled with my flatfoot issue have seriously affected the way I play basketball. My physiotherapist, Christy Lam, is the turning point. Not only did she design personal course of treatment for my limb, but she also came up with innovative solutions to fix my flatfoot, which, according to some Chinese bone-setting practitioners, is cureless. I am most grateful for her professional advice.

Sunny Wong

Christy is the most professional, helpful and understanding physiotherapist! I went to her throughout my running journey with multiple injuries and she was able to guide me into recovery with added tips on recovery exercises. Highly recommend!

Vanessa Wong

Have been to Christy for physio around 10 times due to issues with my wrist (injury) and back (partly from WFH) - highly recommend it!!! Feeling a lot better and she's been very nice, giving good suggestions for stretching, exercises etc.

William Alsterklint

I somehow pulled a neck muscle and was having difficulty doing simple movements. Luckily, I was referred to Christy Lam, who has drastically improved my condition. Great service, friendly staff and amazing outcome. I highly recommend this practice!

Winnie Chan

Earlier in Jan, my husband was introduced to Christy Lam for his post surgery recovery on his knee, and I myself also went to see Christy for my post natal recovery in March. I think I can speak for both of us that our experience with Christy has been nothing short of positivity. Christy was very professional, caring, and patient, explaining the stages of our recovery, and why each exercise mattered. Every visit marked progress for us, and thanks to Christy, our recovery has been on track (if not exceeding expectations). My husband has slowly returned to regular exercise; I have rebuilt my core after childbirth, Christy has also taught me ways to stretch my muscle to avoid soreness. Highly recommended Christy!
