Areas of Expertise:
Had several physio sessions with Maritza to improve my sciatica, which involved doing some core muscle exercises, massages and pilates. She was very professional and patient, my situation greatly improved.
I am seeing Maritza for my post-natal back pain, abdominal separation and misaligned pelvis.
My child is already 2 years old but Maritza can still fix me with acupuncture, manual therapy and reformer Pilates. She is extremely knowledgeable with pregnancy related conditions.
I wish I have come to her sooner!
Maritza has helped me a lot on improving my condition on abdominal separation via personalised pilates. I’m very satisfied with her professional service.
I am suffered from postnatal low back pain and abdominal separation. I have received the treatment here to realign pelvis, strengthening core muscles by doing Pilates with reformer here and getting advice from my physiotherapist Maritza on how to do the daily exercise at home. I am satisfied with service here and see the improvement of my situation.
I got serious post-natal back pain and abdominal separation. Thanks to Maritza, my condition improved a lot and I am getting rid of my mommy tummy! Thank you so much!
I have been seeing Maritza for physio and Pilates. She has been amazingly caring, informative and clear in her approach to what plan is the most suitable for the condition. So, it is the very early stage of treatment so I look forward to continuing this review with an update of how the treatment helped and hopefully solved the reason for first going to Sports and Spinal. I highly recommend Martiza!!
I had my physiotherapy with Maritza due to lower back pain. I had regular Pilates sessions with her and the results are amazing.
I am seeing Maritza for my low back pain. Treatment included deep friction massage, ultrasound, and pelvis realignment. Now she is teaching me Reformer Pilates. She is very good and nice and professional!
I visited Maritza Lue, having a bad back pain, and she gave me a great and very effective Acupuncture treatment, and it helps me a lot, easing my tension by just a couple of visit. Thanks.
I am coming to pro health and I’m seeing Maritza for my scoliosis. She is treating me with reformer Pilates and acupuncture. I’m feeling much better after my sessions.
Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.
I graduated as a physiotherapist in 2000 in Hong Kong. After applying what I learned in university into my clients, I realized that I did not have the skillset to fully rehabilitate my clients. There are many aspects of a person’s pain, and I wanted to heal a person as holistically as possible. That led me to acquire a diploma in Acupuncture, a certificate in Pilates, a certificate in Natural Wellness Nutrition, certificate in cranial sacral therapy and many more skills.
In recent years, I started to focus more on Women’s Health physiotherapy due to the lack of service and the great impact treatment has on a woman’s physical and emotional aspect.
I believe that women do not have to suffer in silence anymore. There are solutions for conditions that doctors and peers are too embarrassed to talk about.
What are your interests?
Before my whiplash injury while wakeboarding, I used to windsurf and wakeboard a lot. However, after the incident, I am now doing Tai Chi and meditation instead. I am also a classical music lover and enjoy opera and musical. I am a big foodie who focuses on being Gluten free and Dairy free. I am up to date with all the new restaurants, and educate chefs into this healthier diet.
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.
I was part of the Equestrian Events of the Olympic Games in 2008 which was held in Hong Kong. Due to my fluency in Spanish, English, and Cantonese, I was responsible to translate and facilitate any needs or requirement for Spanish speaking players and teammates. It was a once in a lifetime experience to be able to participate in the Olympic Games as a linguist and to be up close and personal with the players and their horses.
What is your area of expertise?
I am greatly drawn to treating women’s health physiotherapy issues including stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and prolapsed pelvic floor by combining electrical stimulation and reformer-based Pilates exercise. This combination provides the best outcome.
I treat pre-natal and post-natal sacroiliac joint instability and pain by realigning the pelvis and providing a brace or taping. For post-natal sacroiliac joint pain, I use acupuncture in my physiotherapy treatment as well in order to release the deep muscles spasm that may contribute to the misalignment.
Aside from women’s health physiotherapy, I also specialise with conditions such as tempero mandibular joint (TMJ) pain, headache, and scoliosis by combining acupuncture, manual therapy and specific scoliosis stretch.
What is the most fulfilling part of this job?
To be able to see mothers return to their normal daily activities and sports without any “embarrassing incidents”.
