I have been seeing Bao Xian for almost a year now for my knee problem. She is very knowledgeable and understands my knee issues very well. She explains my conditions clearly and suggests exercises to improve my mobility. My knee has since improved with her ‘touch’.
Friendly, helpful and very effective physio. Can definitely recommend going here!
I was referred by a friend to The Rehab Studio for my lower leg numbness due to my nerve compression.
Mr. Gan explained my condition to me patiently using my MRI report. He was being realistic and shares with me on things that can be managed with his services and also things that cannot be help with his services. This help me to feel ease with his treatment and also help me in deciding whether I should go for the surgery as suggested by my doctor.
One thing I like is that he is not pushy at all as I had bad experience with other clinics who keep trying to sell me packages.
My father's physio in hospital referred The Rehab Studio to continue rehab my father's rehab after his in-patient stay.
Mr Gan is experienced and skillful. He does home physiotherapy and gave advices which are useful within the house and show my helper simple exercises to be done using tools available at home.
Me and my mother also don't have to worry about bringing my father to day rehab clinic anymore.
After a long absence from the gym due to COVID, I returned to my workout with full force to have my muscle gains back. While doing my lateral raise, I felt a sharp pain on my left elbow which I ignored and resumed my routine. The pain gradually intensified to the point I had to take 2 panadols in order to be able to sleep that night. Fortunately, Zino was available for house call the following morning. He did a very thorough examination of the source of pain, asking questions and directed me to do certain movements. About 10 minutes later, he gave me the good news that there was no bone fracture or torn ligament. He was able to determine accurately that it was the intermittent muscle spasms that caused the pain on my left elbow. This overstimulation stemmed from my sudden loading of heavy weight on the left elbow muscles. To counter the pain and for recovery, he proposed that I do a motion that counter the spasm by contracting the opposite muscles. Muscles can either contract or relax, and they work antagonistically (when one side contract, the other side must relax). Hence, when he prescribed the simple motion using an elastic band to simulate the motion of a bicep curl (see photos) from the surface of the bed up till my forearm is parallel to the bed from the elbow and a turning motion to face my thigh, this caused contraction of the muscles opposite to the muscles that caused the spasm and pain. When this happens, the muscles that caused the spasm relaxed and the pain subsided. By doing this simple motion repeatedly a couple of times a day, I fully recovered within 3 days with no drug prescription. Zino is the guy you must go to if you need accurate diagnosis of your injury and receive sound, practical advice and I dare say, an elegant solution! Thank you, Zino!
I injured my back during a basketball game.
Doctor referred me to see a physiotherapist but it was difficult for me to either take a train or sit on a cab for long and travel to any physio clinic due to my back pain.
Lucky that I found The Rehab Studio though google. They provide home physio to my house.
Mr Gan is very experience and skillful. He did some assessments and managed to relief my pain. Not 100% recovered after my first session but definitely more than 50% better.
He also educates me while treating, so that I know what he is doing.
I think home physio should the way because It was really hard for me to travel out to see a physio with my injury.
I used to bring my father to another physio clinic for his Parkinson rehab session. However, it was difficult for the family to arrange time and take turn to bring my father to the clinic.
The Rehab Studio provides physio service to my house, so that we don't have to worry about travelling and adjust my work schedule anymore. Mr Gan always practice a lot of activities with my father inside my house and downstairs fitness corner, which we can never do that in a clinic. Now my helper can replicate these exercises with my father too after training by Mr Gan.
I appreciate their home therapy service and will recommend others to try.
My MIL recently undergone a total knee replacement and we engaged Mr Gan to assist her in recovery. Mr Gan was not only very patient, but also very encouraging and professional. He introduced a series of strengthening exercises, stretches and soft tissue release, which greatly improved her knee range. Within 3 sessions, she weaned off the walking frame and was able to walk without aid, with a much improved walking pattern. Seeing the great improvement with Mr Gan, my MIL who was initially skeptical, is now fully compliant and looking forward to physiotherapy. Even her friends noticed the vast improvement in her knee range, walking and confidence.
I'm confident and optimistic that with Mr Gan's professional help, my MIL be able to regain her active lifestyle in no time. I'm thankful for Mr Gan and highly recommend him as your physiotherapist.
The Rehab Studio When Covid-19 circuit-breaker disrupted my day rehab center's therapy for my stroke recovery, I engaged Zino's tele-rehab session which progressed to home therapy when it was allowed. The Rehab Studio understands that every stroke is unique and customized treatment based on my muskological and neurological impediment. Both my upper and lower limbs improved over weeks. Zino is able to use what I have in my residence to prescribe exercises and used an app to track my daily progress, that has motivated me to improve. I trust The Rehab Studio with my stroke recovery knowing that Zino is willing to research and apply unconventional therapy method (TRX system) and affordable technology equipments (apps and EMS) to target "learned unused" and atrophied muscles to get well
My brother had a stroke 2 years ago and his balance improves very slow, he can't talk as he has an opening at his throat. We noticed his eyes unable to move properly and doctors have been telling us his has double vision. However, no therapist ever told us or attempt to fix that. Until we met Mr Gan.
Mr Gan noticed that my brother has double vision during his first visit and pointed out that can be the root cause of his poor balance. We already know his has double vision but never thought of that can be the reason of his poor balance, and we are surprised that he said this can be fixed with exercises. NO ONE EVER TOLD US THIS! He said eyeballs are controlled by muscles, and it can be trained.
Mr Gan started eye exercises for my brother and his left eye ball started to move more synchronize with his right eye ball after few sessions.
Mr Gan is amazing and skillful. He is a thinking physio and we are grateful that we have him as my brother's physio.
My sister is a stroke survivor. Her therapist introduced Mr Gan to us during Circuit breaker period so that we can continue her therapy session. I was sceptical on doing therapy in my house as our house does not has any suitable equipment.
However, Mr Gan is very creative! He managed to make use of whatever we have in our house to come out exercises that is suitable for my sister.
He also educates us a lot on why he prescribes those exercises, analysed the deep rooted issue of my sister.
He is also the first therapist who insists to walk my sister without her AFO and walking stick, he explained that those gadgets slow down her improvement.
We are very happy with his service and skill.
We continue to engage his service despite now the rehab center has resumed service.
I accidentally sprained my neck sometime ago and couldn’t sleep for nights nor turn my head due to the intense pain and pressure caused by the injury. The pain didn’t ease at all despite taking painkillers. Therefore I went to seek treatment @ The Rehab Studio. They’re highly professional and dedicated; they will conduct the sessions at the patient’s convenience considering that most patients seeking for physiotherapy sessions have difficulty in traveling. I was able to have restful nights after just the first physiotherapy session with them!
