Areas of Expertise:
My physio, Maritza was really empathetic and has been helping me with my scoliosis and the subsequent back and shoulder aches. It’s still a work in progress, but I’ve been really impressed by her knowledge around this condition and her ability to give more specialize care.
I went to see Maritza Lue 4 months after I gave birth to treat my abdominal separation. Maritza was very professional and used ultrasound to assess the depth and severity of the separation. I train with her in the Pilates gym 1-2 times a week to strengthen my core. She also gave me some home exercise to do and adjusted the exercises for my ability. After two weeks I begin to feel my core is getting stronger and I am confident that Maritza can help me to heal my condition.
Went to Maritza Lue to address years-long chronic knee pain that’s been exacerbated by multiple sports including Olympic weightlifting and climbing. She treated it with ultrasound, heat therapy and acupuncture and has drastically reduced that pain. I have since been able to lift without pain, regained single leg pistol squats and improved recovery in between workouts. Very satisfied!
I’ve been seeing Maritza for Pre Natal Pilates since i was 4 months pregnant. My abdominal separation was moderate (about 2 fingers), but it hasn’t got worse since then and the shape of my bump looks tighter. I’ll keep coming until I deliver, as well as Post Natal Pilates.
I received physio treatment from Maritza Lue for a persistent over-active bladder. She helped me to understand my diet (the “trigger” foods) and treat it from a myriad of different angles, and whilst it is hasn’t been an “overnight” fix she has helped me feel confident, and in control of my body again. For this I am indebted to her and grateful beyond words.
After a long history of twisting my ankle and falling over, I went in with both old and new injury pains in my ankles, wrist and lower back. Maritza is not only address the current issues, she is also able to pinpoint some root causes to prevent future injuries. She employs modern techniques as well as acupuncture with a ‘Midas touch” – hitting pain points right on target. She has also given me a stretching and rehab plan to work on things at home. Her professionalism, sincere care and personable character make an amazing combination!
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.
I’ve seen Maritza for Pre and Post-Natal back pain. She has done spinal realignment, pelvic realignment and Pilates. She has been very thorough and thoughtful with her care. I have been extremely satisfied with her treatment and would strongly recommend her to anyone dealing with musculoskeletal pain.
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 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!
Maritza is very experienced and professional. She has helped me to release my left ankle pain caused by a serious sprain and fracture during a soccer game. Together with the assistance of the well equipped facilities, I have been recovering in a speedy pace.
Maritza Lue is very professional. She has helped me to release my back pain by doing pilates and acupuncture. I can see the significant improvement.
I have been delighted with the results of physio, after having a painful shoulder for years it is finally pain free! Maritza Lue has worked wonders on my frozen shoulder. She manipulated it, used ultrasound, heat treatment and acupuncture (with electric). She also gave me home exercises to complete the process. I am so happy she was recommended to me, that I now want to recommend her to YOU!
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”.
