Tell us about your background in physiotherapy

I completed my training as a physiotherapist at the University of Brighton in the UK, and specialised in musculoskeletal medicine through my master's degree in Manipulative Physiotherapy at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It equipped me with specialist expertise in pain management through in-depth exploration of clinical reasoning, application of evidence-based knowledge and manual skills. Meanwhile, I developed my skill set in both public hospitals and private clinics, which has provided me extensive clinical experience in treating a broad spectrum of, sometimes complex, musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions.

During the years in public hospitals, I started treating spinal conditions very early on while gaining exposure to various specialties. I felt that musculoskeletal conditions can be persistent and often complicated, and that sound clinical reasoning and a good pair of hands are crucial in tackling these complex scenarios. There was also a period of time when I specialised in treating patients with upper limb conditions and I saw a large number of patients coming with repetitive strains, work-related pain, fractures and injuries in shoulder, elbow and hand. I moved on to working alongside orthopaedic surgeons when I left Hospital Authority, and I treated many acute pain and sports/occupational injuries managed conservatively or surgically.

As someone who suffers from endometriosis, I also have a profound special interest in women’s health. I've attended women coming to physiotherapy for lactation issues, incontinence, pelvic girdle pain, pre and post natal rehabilitation and pain management.

What types of injuries or areas do you specialise in?

I treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions including acute to chronic neck/back pain, occupation-related conditions,sports injuries and so on. I also practise women's health physiotherapy.

In my practice, I adopt an integrated approach of manual therapy, body biomechanics assessment and targeted exercise therapy to help my clients obtain optimal musculoskeletal health, sports performance and simply feel better and achieve their goals. I have been practising modern acupuncture throughout my career as well and find it very helpful in facilitating recovery. Clinical pilates is also a form of exercise therapy that I often utilise for patients with spinal pain or pelvic floor dysfunction.

What are your interests?

I go to the gym regularly, alongside the occasional running, hiking, bouldering, wakesurf etc. to spice up my routine! I enjoy experimenting with a new sport from time to time not just to make workout fun for myself, but it also gives me a first-person perspective when I’m treating my patients. Tennis is my new found interest!

Meanwhile, I am a foodie who loves exploring new restaurants and cafes with my friends. I love seafood, desserts, spicy food, Japanese food, yum cha, hot pot- basically every type of food! Part of the reason why I work out too – so that I can eat more good food!

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

Living and studying in England for 5 years was definitely a turning point in my life. I just turned 16 at that point and that was my first long-haul flight out of the country. I went there on my own without any friends and relatives to receive me and honestly, I don’t think I can do it all over again now! I still recall getting lost in the city of Brighton the first day when I hadn’t had a functioning mobile network.

Looking back, I think this period of time shaped me into a more independent and self-reliant person as there was no one to go to at first whenever there was a happening and you had to resort to yourself to solve the problems. I also learned a great deal about what it’s like to work as a physiotherapist while I lived with my host family as one of the family members was a physio herself. This later led to me choosing physiotherapy as my pursued profession, and consequently where I am now. Although throughout the years a lot of family time was sacrificed, I am still grateful to have had this opportunity and it has definitely changed my life forever.

What is the most fulfilling part of this job?

I derive a lot of satisfaction from providing good care to my clients and seeing them through to meet their goals, whether it is to minimize pain, return to function and just to live a life feeling free of their physical burden. The best part of it is that I also get to learn from and build relationships with my clients through their recovery journey.

Meredith is a really skilled, professional, detail-oriented physiotherapist.

I highly recommend Meredith and also introduced her to my friends and family!

Super amazing physiotherapist. I’m an athlete with a lot of tight muscles and muscle fatigue. After every session, I feel amazing. Meredith Cheng knows where the soft spots are and hits the right areas that need extra care. She has this heat lamp that she uses to help alleviate the tension. Today, I went for a shoulder and neck session, as a result, my mobility / range of mobility substantially improved. Highly recommend!

Desmond C.

I was dealing with years of accumulated stress in my neck and back and hadn't been able to find a solution. Meredith came highly recommended from my coworkers and after just one session, I felt an immediate difference. As well as being extremely professional and knowledgeable, Meredith is kind, personable, and thoughtful - I was nervous about trying physiotherapy, and she assuaged my worries with her clear + scientific explanations of the treatment methods, and made me feel instantly comfortable. She also gave me several exercises to do on my own, and I have seen significant improvement since. If you are uncertain about trying physio for the first time, stick with Meredith, it will be worth it!

I recently had the opportunity to receive physiotherapy treatment, and I must say that I am extremely grateful and highly impressed with the service I received. The experience was truly exceptional. First and foremost, the level of care and attention provided by the physiotherapist - Meredith Cheng was outstanding. She took the time to thoroughly assess my condition, listen to my concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to my needs. Their expertise and knowledge were evident throughout the entire process, and I felt confident that I was in capable hands.

Eunice C.

When I first came to the clinic few months ago feeling limited by my injury and even unable to engage in everyday activities or workouts, I was filled with frustration. Her attentiveness and genuine concern immediately put me at ease. It is proven that she is a knowledgable physiotherapist as she diligently assessed my condition and identified the root cause of my injury. Her commitment to educate her clients also set her apart. She took the time to educate me on recovery exercises and ensure they are correctly performed. The dedication to empowering clients with knowledge is greatly commendable. Thanks to her expertise and guidance, I have returned to the gym recently and I am amazed by this extraordinary transformation.

Hanson L.

Meredith is a wonderful physiotherapist. She is kind, patient, and attentive. Her exercises and treatments have helped my problems effectively.


Suffered a moderate to severe ankle sprain and was assigned Meredith for physiotherapy services. Having attended over 20 sessions with her, I can undoubtedly say she is extremely professional and is not only knowledgeable but also has the skills to back it up. Would definitely recommend.


I had been having ligaments injury for 4 months. I went to several clinics but there aren't any improvements. I had been frustrated because I got mixed opinions from doctors and I don't know which one is correct. There is no effective treatment to my injury, until I found Sports & Spinal. Meredith is very skilled and professional at treating my ligaments injury. She analysed my injury problems and give me the best treatment. She always welcomes patients to ask questions and explains in a very clear way. She always puts herself at patient's shoes. For example, she will give me a heads up about pain levels before she does acupuncture. This eases my nervousness. Beyond treatment sections, she encourages patient to do suitable exercises to accelerate the recovery process. Such caring physio, I don't know how many there are on this Earth! I am very happy to do sports again! Thanks to this place with a professional team!

Jack L.

Meredith understands your pain points and very knowledgeable on how to address these. Tremendously helpful!

I have had a lower back issue for quite some time and glad to have had come across Prohealth Sports And Spinal. Meredith has done 4 sessions with me so far. Her treatment and exercises are effective, which are also designed to help me strengthen my glutes and core. My pain is more and more manageable with notable results. Meredith's combined professional knowledge and pleasant personality make her a real asset of Prohealth! Fantastic experience overall.

Jan G.

Meredith has been my physiotherapist for the past couple months since I sustained a lower-back injury a few months back and she's been nothing short of a miracle worker. I thought my sharp back pain would never go away and would affect my ability to sit, stand, get around etc., but she showed her knowledge and skills in helping my back get better. She was able to explain every step and gave me better insight on how to recover and strengthen the muscle, as well as how to stay careful and avoid the injury in the future. I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to book Meredith for a physiotherapy session!

Jason C.

Meredith is such a godsend. She is professional and personable, and has helped me with my complex, chronic body pain. I strongly recommend booking with Meredith - you can thank me later! The clinic itself is neat and bright, and conveniently located for those who work in the Central area.

Meredith has been a wonderful physio in assisting with repairing a recent injury and explaining how it may have occurred and how to self administer in the event of future pain.

Kelly L.

This was my first time having a physio session and it was great!! The location is convenient in Central and the environment is great. Meredith is very professional and patient.

Man Wa Fu

Hurt my back and knee several months ago. Meredith Cheng was my physio - she started on my chronic back and leg pain, and moving towards the knee. Great advise and support from her. Could walk better without a walking stick now. Looking forward to the next stage of therapy. Building and strengthening my core.


After a chronic back/scapula issue for several years and seeing a number of practitioners, i contacted Prohealth Sports and Spinal at Jardine House and met Meredith. From day 1, she was personable, professional and possessed an excellent understanding of her practice. She took care and the time to understand the cause of pain and to identify strategies going forward. I found that her approach was also progressive and has changed as our sessions have gone on. Really impressed and I’ve already recommended her to many of my friends who need a physio. Thanks again - it made a real difference!

Philip Truman

Meredith is great to work with, she will first work to understand your specific issues and then consistently work to fix them. She recommends targeted exercises to help reduce pain and strengthen your body over the long term.

Ryan M.

Had a fantastic experience at Sports & Spinal. Meredith was always very professional and friendly. I had torn my calf playing rugby a few couple months ago and she took the time to explain how I had injured my calf, and how best to treat it. I attended multiple sessions where she used acupuncture, cupping and massage coupled with specific and guided rehabilitation exercises. I'm back to playing rugby now and feel as strong as ever. I would highly recommend seeing Meredith to anyone looking for a physio!

Ryan Willig

This clinic is conveniently located in Central, so easy access and also relatively easy to get an appointment. Meredith was my appointed physiotherapist and she was really professional and most importantly very friendly. She explained my injury in detail and provided guidance on the healing process.

Simon W.

Recovering from sciatica and had severe nerve pain 6 months ago. Fast forward to now with the help of both Chris and Meredith, my mobility and movement has improved immensely. Super professional, knowledgable and supportive, I’ve recommended the physios here to many friends and colleagues.

Sonya H.

Meredith is an amazing physio and truly lives up to the great reviews you’ll find on here. Over the course of a few weeks, she supported my full recovery and return to sports, and has given great guidance on how to build strength to prevent future injuries. She is always patient and professional, and has taught me a lot about my own body/injuries. Also helps that she’s genuinely a really kind and interesting person to be around - she made lunch physio sessions something to look forward to! 🙂 The clinic is also really clean and nice. Very convenient if you work in the area.
