Senior physiotherapist, Sophie, graduated with a first class honors degree in physiotherapy from University College Dublin, in 2012.
Following graduation, Sophie emigrated to Singapore and spent three years working in government hospitals (Alexandra Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital). Here, she specialised in orthopedics; managing a complex caseload of post-operative conditions. Sophie also undertook amputee rehabilitation courses during this time, and headed the lower limb amputee rehabilitation service.
Sophie’s keen interest in musculoskeletal and sports rehabilitation led her to take on a role at another private physiotherapy clinic in Singapore for 2 years, before joining Urban Rehab. Here, she fine-tuned her clinical skills through advanced physiotherapy courses and exposure to a wide variety of conditions at the clinic.
Sophie is a firm believer in the need for comprehensive examination into movement impairments and the need to target the source of the problem, rather than simply treating the resultant complaints. She is passionate about functional exercise rehabilitation and getting her clients moving!
Sophie is a fitness junkie herself. She is always eager to explore new forms of exercise, which she then carries over into the arena of rehabilitation. Currently, she is enjoying CrossFit – a form of high-intensity functional exercise that incorporates elements from several sports eg. Gymnastics, weightlifting. She hopes to undertake a CrossFit trainer course in the future to further help in her clients rehabilitation.
