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.

I had been struggling with chronic back pain after playing basketball for many many years, but thanks to Christy, I am now pain-free!! Christy went above and beyond by explaining my condition in detail and providing valuable insights into the specific muscles I needed to focus on. She introduced me to a variety of exercises aimed at strengthening those specific muscles. Her approach was not only focused on immediate relief but also on preventing future injuries. Throughout the process, she guided me towards a full recovery. In addition to resolving my back pain, Christy successfully treated my ankle sprain, finger dislocation, and shoulder pain. I wholeheartedly recommend Christy to anyone seeking a skilled and compassionate physiotherapist. Her expertise is truly remarkable!

Christy Lam is one of the best physiotherapist I have worked with. She has created a personalized plan to help rehabilitate my knee. She is very knowledable and is always willing to answer my questions. She is supportive and attentive. She is so friendly and makes this process so much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Christy and the clinic.

Jaymie S.

I had ruptured my right achilles and decided to choose Prohealth because it was in the same building as my workplace. Christy was my allocated physiotherapist and I must say the treatments I had was beyond what I normally get from past therapists. For example, Christy was always active and never made me felt rushed in my exercises. She gave me various techniques to strengthen my achilles, and since then I have swapped to her recommendations in the morning and before going to bed.  I believe Christy has all the qualities for this: making customers feel at ease; being patient, listening to your views, empathy and sometimes a good chit chat about anything really to beat the quietness. I will use her services again if the need arises.

Lee Y.

My physiotherapist Christy Lam was extremely professional and trustworthy and helped my understand the biomechanics of my neck pain problem. Especially the acupuncture I underwent and the stretching exercises she taught has helped me released tight muscles. Furthermore, all staffs are very friendly and welcoming! Thanks to Christy my quality of life has returned!

Lewis L.

I recently received treatment for plantar fasciitis from Christy, a highly skilled physiotherapist in Prohealth. Christy's expertise and care exceeded my expectations, and I am extremely satisfied with the results. From the first session, Christy conducted a thorough assessment, listened attentively to my concerns, and provided clear explanations. She also designed a comprehensive plan tailored to my needs, incorporating manual therapy, stretching and strengthening exercises. Her techniques were effective in reducing my pain and improving my foot function. What impressed me most about Christy was her compassionate and supportive demeanor throughout. Furthermore, Christy provided valuable guidance for self-management, educating me on proper footwear, recommending exercises for home, and offering practical tips for prevention. Overall, I highly recommend Christy to anyone seeking expert treatment. Her professionalism, expertise, and genuine care make her an outstanding physiotherapist.

Lydia Y.

Christy Lam is very knowledgeable and technical! She knows joints, muscles extremely well and knows exactly how to treat them. She helped me recover from my Achilles tendon repair very fast!I still consult her for any type of discomfort and pain.

Michael Thp

Christy is a wonderful physiotherapist. Recently, she cured my wrist pain through acupuncture and progressive exercise therapy in only a few sessions. She also taught me different exercises to do at home to strength it. She also solved my neck and shoulder problem before which showed no improvement by another physiotherapist in another physiotherapy centre. Christy is patient, cheerful, detail minded, professional and can communicate well with patients. I highly recommend her to anyone in need.

Micky L.

I am extremely grateful to Christy, the amazing physical therapist who has helped me recover after giving birth. I was dealing with various forms of pain, including back pain, waist pain, and hand pain. After each session, the pain significantly reduced, thanks to her skilled treatments. Christy also addressed other postpartum issues, such as repairing my rectus abdominis muscles. In addition to her professional abilities, Christy has shown a high level of care and concern. She genuinely cares about my physical well-being and frequently discusses treatment progress and goals with me. She provides me with personalized advice and guidance to help me achieve the best results during the treatment process. Her patience and professionalism are commendable. I highly recommend Christy for her exceptional care and expertise in postpartum recovery!

Ms. Zhu

Highly recommend Christy Lam! She has been extremely helpful in my postpartum recovery journey. I originally went to see her for my “mommy thumb”, she also helped me on some gentle abs + gluts recovery — making sure I was strong enough to resume my pre-pregnancy exercise routines. She also treated my mother for her “grandma thumb”. Christy is fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, always a pleasure to chat with her during treatments!

Nancy Yannan Li

Was referred to PT Christy Lam for my chronic leg pain. She is friendly and professional and brings hope to my chronic pain. I had received PT services in different clinics, but the effect did not last long. Christy adopted a different approach that she carefully analysed what led to my pain rather than only relieved my pain symptoms. She corrected my postures and taught me exercises for proper usage of appropriate muscle groups. Drastic outcome is obtained and I highly recommend her service.

Nicholas Ng

I am so lucky that I met Ms Christy Lam here! I have been suffering from the shoulders, neck, and back pain for more than 10 years to the point that I thought I had Fibromyalgia.. I was too busy to see the doctor and I thought these symptoms can be treated by just some massage. I went to several massage places. It didn’t get better until I can’t bear the pain anymore. I did a lot of researches and found Ms Christy via Google and I decided to try a treatment with her. Turned out she could treated these symptoms with the manual therapy + acupuncture. It took me 4 weeks ( 2 times a week) until my pain was gone!! How amazing ! I am super impressed by her professionalism and her personality! She is very friendly and would initiate the talk with her patients and that shows that she really cares for her patients ! I’m so grateful that she could help my symptoms get better and could teach me how to exercise. You will feel like she can also be your friend who you can share things with ! In conclusion, I highly recommend Ms Christy Lam ! She is someone you are looking for if you are suffering from the physical pain. Don’t go to the random massage place, but rather see a professional physiotherapist and I recommend highly recommend her.

Puttida K.

My physiotherapist is Christy, and she is amazing! I had knee pains from hiking, but have seen significant improvements in both my knees and performance even after only a few sessions. The schedule is also very flexible. Highly recommend!

Ran Y.

Christy is the most fantastic physiotherapist I have ever met. She always uses her “magic hands” to heal my back pain. I’m here to recommend her to everyone without hesitation. Christy’s treatment means too much to me I dare to say I wouldn’t have played and worked hard without her treatment.

Redbean Lam

I have been trying a lot of different ways to deal with my neck and back pain, but they are not as effective as a physio session with Christy. After multiple sessions, I have seen significant improvement on my posture. Apart from treatment in the center, Christy has offered a lot of tips on Pilates and stretching exercises which I can also perform at home.

Ripple T.

After suffering from degenerative disc disease and flat neck syndrome ; I had the amazing opportunity and chance to work with Christy for my issues. She taught me a lot about my soine and at home exercises that I could do on my own to keep a healthier spine and work on painful days.. She was very experienced and compassionate about all the questions I had about my issues and my body .. She even listened calmly on some days I was a bit off and probably frustrated about the pains 🙂 I feel safe to know that she’s got my back in any case of issue I might have anytime.  ?? Thank you!

Seda A.

So grateful for the help and guidance of my physio Christy, who has been instrumental in relieving my neck and shoulder pain. She taught me lots of exercises to correct my posture. She is not only skilled and knowledgeable, but also patient and compassionate. Appreciate with her treatment, she is awesome!

Sin Yee C.

I have serious shoulder pain around 1 year. I met Christy and she found my problem. I really like her treatment. I learnt many movement for workout at home also. Next, I will fix my back pain after pregnancy. Thank you Christy!

Stella Kim

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Christy Lam, a remarkable physiotherapist who possesses an exceptional talent for acupuncture. I have been suffering from the shoulder impingement syndrome for more than one year. Before the acupuncture sessions, I had serious difficulty in lifting my left arm. My left shoulder was in consistent pain if I swing it at certain angles. After the acupuncture sessions, my condition is SO MUCH BETTER. From the moment I stepped into their clinic, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism. Christy took the time to listen attentively to my concerns, thoroughly understanding my specific needs and goals. Her expertise in acupuncture was immediately evident as she carefully explained the process and addressed any questions or uncertainties I had. During the acupuncture sessions, I was consistently amazed by Christy's ability to accurately identify the key areas that required attention. Her knowledge of human anatomy and understanding of how the body functions were evident throughout the treatment. Her skilful placement of the needles, combined with a gentle touch, created a sense of comfort and trust. What truly sets Christy apart from other physiotherapists is her remarkable patience. She takes the time to ensure I am comfortable and relaxed before proceeding with the acupuncture. While perfection may not be attainable in any field, this physiotherapist's dedication to her craft and commitment to delivering exceptional care are truly commendable. I would tell her if I felt unconformable and she would quickly address my concern. Her ability to react to the areas requiring attention and her unwavering patience make every session a worthwhile experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Christy to anyone seeking acupuncture treatment.

Sunny W.

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 was an integral part of helping me return to competitive sports after suffering foot pain. As an athlete who trains 5 days a week, she was able to treat the pain as well as improve my ankle strength/stability through a combination of manual therapy and rehabilitation exercises. During the sessions, she patiently answered all my questions and afterwards, she would follow up with messages to remind me of my exercises. I would highly recommend Christy!

Tracy W.

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

I had knee pain and strained my calf 10 days before the 2023 Standard Chartered Marathon, which meant that I lost my chance to perform after 6 months of training for the event, and was so depressed and frustrated that I was tempted to just grit my teeth and stick with the race. Physiotherapist Christy weighed up the situation and decided that I should give up the race in order to prepare for more marathons in the future. With her patience and targeted exercises, I quickly returned to my normal training six months on I have run a total of 1020km without knee pain or muscle soreness.... I would like to thank her for my running posture analysis, she for me from different angles to shoot records, analyze, give the need to improve the problem of the accurate recommendations, and now run 190 kilometers a month no longer have pain trouble, thank you for your professionalism and enthusiasm. I have more confidence for the 2024 Standard Chartered Marathon!

Vincent X.

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!
