    Senior Physiotherapist

    Sarah is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist who completed her Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta, Canada in 2013. Upon returning to Singapore, she has worked in both restructured and private hospitals collectively for around 5 years before joining Performance Sports & Rehab Specialists.

    Sarah enjoys working with patients of all ages and has gained experience in treating infants, children and adolescents with musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions during her time at KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital. From there she went on to specialise in the area of musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy when working in the outpatient clinic at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, where she was exposed to more post-operative orthopedic cases and conservative management for musculoskeletal conditions.

    With a keen interest in sports injuries and pre-rehabilitation, she believes in education and training in functional movement to prevent the occurrence and recurrence of injuries. Sarah has completed courses in the areas of manual therapy, clinical pilates, strength & conditioning, dry needling and taping which she employs as part of rehabilitation.

    As an ex-rugby player and with a passion in immediate care in sports, Sarah has served as the Team Physiotherapist for the National Womens’ Rugby 7s team since 2015 and has travelled with Team Singapore for regional competitions like the annual Asia Rugby Sevens Series, SEA Games (2017), Asian Games (2018) and SEA Games (2019). She is a World Rugby certified medical practitioner and educator, and is also actively involved in sports coverage at both local and international rugby tournaments that are held in Singapore.
