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

Amazing physiotherapist, would definitely come back! Christy was very professional, patient and caring throughout the entire treatment. I didn’t feel rushed or pressured at all. She treated my ankle with acupuncture, manual therapy and specific rehab exercises. My ankle was recovered timely and I am back to football training and gym session now! All thanks to Christy.

Adrian Leung

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

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.

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

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 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

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

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!
