My husband and I have fairly recently become patients of Jenny Johnson's at Raffles Quay for very different reasons. We both cannot speak more highly of her up to the minute knowledge, professionalism and a most pleasant 'bedside manner' and would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends looking for expert physiotherapy treatment. Her method of treatment was both pain free and effective and she went a long way to explain her particular approach and how we could self-treat into the future. Thank you very much Jenny!
I just ended 5 months of post surgery physiotherapy with the very thorough Li Feng and wanted to express my sincere thanks to Li Feng. From the onset, he provided a detailed outline of the process and carefully guided me in each session. He was realistic on the timing and progress which proved to be spot on. I put my full trust in him and he delivered. My shoulder is recovered and I’ve confidently resumed sports and training.
I need to thank the front desk staff for always being welcoming and efficient with my bookings. PhysioActive is a well run team!
Niza is an efficient and competent receptionist who is accommodating and patient. She is also very on task and meticulous with work, making sure that any changes to appointment schedules are accounted for and never forgetting to take the necessary follow up action.
I'm truly appreciative of her cheerful nature and her willingness to go the extra mile to make sure that my experience in seeking treatment at the centre is as stressless and fuss-free as possible.
Very professional and detailed treatment given. You don't have to worry, and you feel at ease to ask questions related to your conditions. It is a very comfortable and professional treatment and consultation provided.
I went to PhysioActive after a recommendation from a friend. Since a few months I discovered reoccurring issues with my hamstring muscle. The therapist suggested specific exercises during the first season, which I have been doing for the past weeks. The confidence of playing football and not having to worry about an injury has risen ever since.... Can only recommend the service and overall experience. Thx Steffen
I visited PhysioActive because of knee problems, which were holding me back from playing football for several months. I absolutely loved the clear diagnosis and explanation provided by Denis, as it helped me to understand how I could contribute myself to ensure the pain reduces. Denis helped me to develop a dedicated muscle training program, based on which I was able to go back to play football regularly only a few weeks after I had visited PhysioActive.
Thanks for your help, Denis!

I had suffered from a number of hamstring injuries in the past and after my most recent tear during a football game, I asked around for the best physio and was referred to Denis Mecklenburg at PhysioActive.
The combination of therapies incl. sports massages and physiotherapy, in particular building and strengthening all the muscles that are crucial for recovery as well as preventing injuries, really impressed me. The progress I have made after only a few sessions is phenomenal and I feel so much fitter than ever before. Thank you guys!!!
I was experiencing bad lower-back pain which had stopped me from playing sport and was impacting on my day-to-day work at the office. Jenny at PhysioActive swiftly isolated the problem and explained what was going on. Through a combination of physiotherapy and advice on stretches and strengthening exercises my sessions at PhysioActive resulted in swift improvement. After ten sessions I have no back pain and I’m swimming, cycling and running again. This has made a big difference to my quality of life and I would highly recommend Jenny at PhysioActive on this basis.
I had hip arthroscopy in my right hip 16 weeks ago and will have another arthroscopy in my left hip next month. My doctor recommended me to see Brigitte Lichtenberger for rehabilitation. To be honest, I was quite nervous about receiving physiotherapy before I came in. Having problems in other side of my hip, my knees as well as my neck, I thought that physiotherapy might exaggerate these problems. But, my anxieties started to disappear after the first session with Brigitte. She always gave me a clear diagnosis based on her extensive experience and knowledge and explained what was going on in my body in an understandable manner. She also has great passion in her work and I felt reassured by the "teamwork atmosphere" she made where I could tell her anything that was on my mind and she was able to answer any questions. I think this helped me keep going. I am currently preparing for the next surgery and looking forward to continuing rehab with her after that.
I was referred to Brigitte with a right shoulder injury, incurred when optimistically attempting a challenging yoga pose. She did a thorough assessment of my entire spine and both shoulders, in order to evaluate the root cause of the problem: essentially chronic tension in my upper back and shoulders, most likely caused by years of hunching over a computer at work. My treatment has involved releasing muscle tension, ungluing fascia, unjamming / realigning joints (spine and shoulders), unlearning bad habits, strengthening weak muscles, relearning how to do even the simplest of movements - lifting up my arms - using the correct muscles, before moving on to more complex movements and yoga postures. Brigitte's skilful dry needling has been a major part of restoring the condition of my muscles: yes, it's been painful at times, but the dry needling has been so effective for me, we've worked on numerous other issues - hips, feet, lower back, ITBs, etc - which had caused me to quit running a few years ago. Her ability to analyse movement and her understanding of how the musculoskeletal system works is awesome. She can always spot when I'm cheating (using the wrong muscles) and when I haven't been doing my homework 🙂
We've been working for 9 months now - that may seem like a long time, but when dealing with issues that have built up over 20+ years, they're not going to get fixed overnight. The improvement in my posture, my range of motion, my pain level and overall well-being has been tremendous. I'm now swimming further than ever before (and it feels so much easier!), my yoga practice is much calmer and I'm even contemplating starting to run again. I've still got work to do - my Chaturanga still sucks - but day by day I'm improving.
I cannot emphasis enough how much Brigitte's skills as a physiotherapist have impacted my physical well-being and the quality of my life. My yoga and swimming are an integral part of my life: 9 months ago I thought I might have to give them up for good; now I'm enjoying them more than ever, thanks to Brigitte (and I must also give credit to Alex, who steps in (with the needles!) when Brigitte's away).
After injuring my knee tendon even the most basic task of walking was extremely painful. I had never had physiotherapy before but I’m glad I tried as Li Feng got me walking pain free after 2 weeks and back in the gym after 6 weeks.
1.5 years ago I had a slipped disc in my back, which was quite painful and made it difficult to travel and impossible to play tennis! The physio sessions with Fran were great and with the trainings program she gave to me I am now back to tennis and travelling without any problems. My back is feeling really good and I can play tennis 4-5 times a week! As a consequence I played too much tennis and I got an injury with my Achilles tendon. With the help of Fran I’m once again back to pain free tennis. I still do the program 3-4 times a week that Fran designed for me and it is working perfectly!!!

I went to PhysioActive reluctantly, thinking that my sore, aching back and hips would eventually fix itself. But my doctor encouraged me to go and I am so glad I did. Joel conducted a thorough and accurate assessment of what was going on in my body. He then manipulated the areas to loosen things up a bit and gave me some simple, no fuss exercises to do each day. as someone who hates exercise I was impressed by how easy and beneficial the exercises were. Within 2 weeks I had more movement and felt more supple in the areas of trouble, plus the pain was greatly reduced. I continue to do my exercises whilst going about my day and find that it has helped enormously.
If you are doubting whether to go or not I say "Definately GO, you won't regret it"
After a fews physio sessions with Matthias, he recommended seeing Colin for deep tissue sports massage treatments for my chronic lower back pain.
After only a few weeks of treatment, there was a noticeable improvement. Now I sleep better and have less pain when sitting in the office.
Colin is always friendly and chats with me during treatment, even when it hurts. His techniques really helped me.
Now in "maintenance mode", I still see Colin fortnightly to keep the muscles limber and reduce the pain.
I would not hesitate to recommend Colin."
Being no longer young, I also try to get regular massages as I am both of a large size yet still fairly active. I like a more vigorous massage and the ones I had gotten in Singapore before tended to be little more than a pleasant rub-down. Alex had told me that PhysioActive did massages so I called and secured an appointment with Colin and have never looked back. More of a treatment for specific issues than the usual "relaxation" therapy, Colin's massages are quite vigorous and he has helped remedy some muscle cramps and tightness that I had suffered from for years. He is quite good at what he does, listens carefully, and really helps with the aches and pains that I occasionally have.
I recommend PhysioActive to anyone who is serious about feeling better as they are very competent professionals, yet still friendly and quite engaging.

Ram is professional, personable and knowledgeable. He explains my treatment in layman’s terms which consequently enables me to become an active participant in my care.
Ram has a calm and reassuring manner that puts me at ease and encourages me to feel more optimistic and hopeful regarding my long term recovery. We have built up a good relationship of trust over the last few months and I would highly recommend him as a physiotherapist.
I attended Physioactive last November following shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, an acromioplasty, and removal of a bone spur. I could not be more pleased with the treatment I received from Ram Peruvemba, my physiotherapist. Not only did Ram advise me prior to surgery on what to expect from my therapy and recovery time but following the procedure, he devised and executed a rigorous treatment plan which has given me a full recovery of strength and function in only six months. It wasn't always easy - and I had no expectation that it would be - but Ram's knowledge and expertise always gave me the confidence that if I completed the exercises as he directed - which I did religiously - I would regain full range of motion and strength.
I now have a new shoulder, free of pain. Thank you, Ram.
After a keyhole surgery for a shoulder impingement and tendon tears, I had five months of physiotherapy treatment by Alex Gill. The five months felt an extremely long time for me but now I can play golf again. Alex is very experienced, not only as a physiotherapist, but also as a mentor. I could not have made it through without her continuous encouragement.

In January, 2013, I suffered a serious accident while travelling in China, where I went under surgical procedure. Back home in Singapore, I was treated by an Orthopedic doctor which referred me to PhysioActive for a physiotherapy follow up. I was broken down, in a wheel chair and with a slight hope of recovering all my movements. With a constant and serious work from my Alex, after a couple of weeks I was able to move from the wheel chair into a pair of crutches and from that to the help of an orthesis. My movements gradually came back and one year later I regain all my movements as before the accident. None of that would have been reached without the invaluable orientation of the PhysioActive professionals and expertise, especially from Ms. Alexandra Gill.

My Knee Surgery was done 21 of January. After that I was referred to Physio Active. I had to start from zero ,all my muscle and strength were gone. I want to thank you for all your support and very good Physio Therapy building my muscle and strength back to normal. I really looking forward for my next run.
Thanks a lot Alexandra!
I first went to see PhysioActive on a referral from my doctor due to a severe left shoulder strain. I was in pretty serious pain and was limited in what I could do. Alex, the physical therapist with whom I worked, was through and professional and while it took some time due to nature of the strain, I recovered completely and suffered no prolonged impairment. I've not had a problem with the condition since Alex finished up.

After a skiing accident and damaging my ACL, MCL and meniscus, I was referred to Mathias Puhr at PhysioActive. Mathias was able to work me through a series of exercises which built up just the right muscles that I should be using. The exercises also built up my confidence in using my injured knee. Many thanks to Matthias, I am back to running and look forward to skiing again soon.
I am an Indian classical dancer. In 2012, my left hamstring muscle stiffened and limited me from doing most of my activities. I was not able to walk straight, stretch my left leg or pursue my dance regime.
Mathias, helped me out through his mindful intervention and understanding of the injury, skillful clinical massages to ease the muscle tension and prescribed a routine of specific physiotherapy activities. These included basic free hand movements along with the use of swimming pool. I live away from Singapore most of the year but rest assured that Mathias will take care of my injuries and fix me always!!
I went to Mathias with a lower back problem and had difficulties with mobility. Mathias was patient and meticulous in ascertaining what needed to be adressed, providing clear guidelines on follow through and answering all my queries. Most importantly, his manner put me immediately at ease and I trust him with successful recovery.

I had been in two car accidents within a span of a year which left me with whiplash of my neck and lower back and chronic pain. I had been to several physiotherapists, orthopaedic surgeons, traditional Chinese medicine doctors, acupuncture and chiropractors with little avail. However, I am glad that I met Mathias Puhr who has been trained in chronic pain management as well as neurological pain. I suffered from piriformis syndrome which left me struggling to sit in my chair to do my work as a doctor and also having difficult carrying simple things like a bottle of milk or being able to sit down for prolonged periods of time. The pain was so intense, I had difficulty sleeping for three years and had to take medications so that I could get rest at night. I had been through many sessions of manual therapy and I also did personal training to relearn how to activate my other groups of muscles as well as strengthen my weaker muscles such that I could get back to my normal activities of living. I am happy to share that today I am free of having to take any pain medications as well as being able to do long distance travel and lift groceries which was a huge struggle previously.
Following surgery to reconstruct my shoulder after a bad motorcycle accident, I began seeing Mathias at PhysioActive. Matthias pushed to my limits without compromising my safety, and has been an integral part of my recovery. He has helped to reduce pain and strengthen my shoulder, which has allowed me to regain functionality and return to the tennis court. I strongly recommend Mathias and PhysioActive to anyone with musculoskeletal issues.

I came to Physioactive to work on my Diastasis Recti, a condition I developed during my pregnancy and with which I needed help resolving after giving birth. I was very confused as to which approach would be better to rectify the Diastasis. When I did my own research I found conflicting views as to how to go about my rehabilitation, the two conflicting approaches being a traditional one and a more recent view which seemed to be gaining ground. The latter focused on strengthening the TVA rather than doing crunches or obliques. I personally felt more comfortable with strengthening my TVA. When I first met with Gail, I immediately felt I was in good hands as she patiently explained all options with me, but was in favor with the new approach. Together we worked on an 18 week program which gradually brought me through definite improvements towards my goals. I reduced my gap from 4 fingers to less than one by working with her.
Gail is highly skilled and knowledgeable professional who is passionate about her work. I would highly recommend her to whomever is looking for support with Women's Health Issues.
My life got a lot better after you taught me those exercises for my postnatal back pain. I feel absolutely great now. I am able to give my best as a mother to my baby boy. I wanted to write to you just to tell you how you changed my life. Thank you so much. I am so grateful for your accurate treatment.
I started seeing Gail in PhysioActive after having my third baby. I had suffered pelvic floor prolapse after my second pregnancy and needed surgery. Unfortunately due to our posting at that time I could not avail of any physiotherapy. This time I wanted a different outcome and went for physio very early. Gail was really great. She listens, motivates and understands. I have been going for a number of months now and can honestly say that the results are unbelievable. I can now go out and about with confidence and have taken up sports again, without fear of leaking. I enjoy my sessions with Gail and would highly recommend anyone suffering from something similar to seek help. The results are worth whatever embarrassment you might feel and in truth Gail is a skilled practitioner who makes things are comfortable and private as possible.
Dear Li Feng,
I would like to thank you for your treatment and advice on my back and neck problems. After few sessions with you and now more than a month of practicing your suggestions the problems seem to be gone. It took few weeks for the back muscles to re-adjust to my new sitting posture but it now feels very relaxing and I don’t wake up with pain in the night.
So once again many thanks for your help!
Thank you! Edson was fantastic and Saskia's neck is much better.
Thank you for your professional discernment and diligence that led to the rapid restoration to full functionality and flexibility of my otherwise badly "frozen" shoulder. If not for your precise and effective therapy, I would have needed surgery!
On my last visit to Denis on 10 August 2010, the words you said "Ronald, there is no need for you to come anymore" sounded like the most soothing music to my ears! I remember I started my first session with him only as recent as April 2010 on the recommendation of a colleague who was also successfully treated by him. This was after I was not making any progress under another physiotherapist. My quality of life was dismal as I experienced excruciating pain.
Denis exercised great professionalism by firstly very carefully ascertaining exactly the cause and extent of my problem. And what I appreciated greatly was that he took pains to explain to me clearly in simple language and with the aid of the models. He then also gave me an idea of how he would go about treating my condition, the expected time to recovery and most importantly, getting myself to be responsible in doing the therapy exercises at home in partnership with him. Denis leaves no doubt in his patient that he knows what he is doing and that gave a great sense of comfort and assurance to the patient that he is in good hands. I could already feel the change for the better after the 2nd session and that motivated me to persevere with the therapy both with him and on my own.
Thank you Denis for helping me regain my quality of life. I commend you for your superior professionalism, thoroughness, care and attentiveness to the patient and his condition.
I am truly satisfied with the high level of experience and professionalism of the whole team at PhysioActive Pte Ltd. They helped me to recover from injuries I sustained after being hit by a truck whilst cycling. I fractured 5 vertebrae in my spine, my shoulder and 4 ribs. Diana, Colin and Alexander played a major role in my recovery. A big thank to everyone and in particular to Diana for ensuring that I worked very hard on my spine and who played a major role in my spine recovery. I have no hesitation in recommending PhysioActive to anyone.
Begin of 2013 I was diagnosed with a partial thickness rotator cuff tear and subacromial inpingement syndrom. As a consequence I underwent surgery of my right shoulder. As physiotherapy plays a key role after the procedure and during the recovery phase, the company Physioactive Pte. Ltd. was recommended to me by my surgeon.
Over the course of four months of treatment I got acquainted of the thorough and professional manners of the Physioactive team. The treatment received and the recommended exercises at home plus follow ups were exemplary and I have no doubt that this regime significantly aided in my full and complete recovery.
Having said that, the physiotherapy treatment does not go alone, it needs to be accompanied by constancy and discipline when doing the exercises at home or else. I greatly appreciate that Denis was quite straight forward on making me understand this approach, not only showing a firm, while gently, attitude but as well encouraging me to take control of my own recovery. Many thanks for this, I really appreciate it.

Having a very long history of back problems and having seen quite a number of different Physiotherapists in the past years, I frankly speaking did not have huge hopes that it would really make a difference this time around. My experience at PhysioActive however was a different and a very positive one. Gail from PhysioActive helped me to overcome back issues I have already started to give up on believing that it could be cured. Following Gail’s advice was truly a good choice. I am even back jogging on a regular basis – something others told me I will not be able to do anymore.

After my ACL reconstruction my doctor sent me to PhysioActive for my knee rehabilitation. Thanks to them I have fully recovered and I’m able to play football again. Thanks again for your great help!!!

I attended PhysioActive following a knee surgery 12 weeks ago and was introduced to my physiotherapist Fran McKirdy. I have during this time undergone a 2nd operation as the knee was not healing. This was picked up at an early stage by Fran. Since the 2nd surgery my progress has improved considerably. Fran is professional, highly knowledgeable and genuinely interested in her work. I owe a huge thank you to her personally as my progress continues under her expert guidance.

In France, prolapse post pregnancy is a main concern and every woman is strongly enticed to go through "physiotherapist sessions" in order to get her body back in shape before practicing any exercise. In Singapore, it does not seem to be common practice so after my 1st pregnancy, I must admit I was a bit lazy and didn’t go through a proper program. However, after my 2nd pregnancy, my 2 boys are 18 months apart, I began to feel some pain in my back and my bottom, not a real prolapse but just enough to be felt and a bit inconvenient in everyday life. Obviously, I was carrying my eldest and living in a house, keeping on going up and down the stairs; meaning living a normal life. That is when I decided to go and see Gail Craig, and it did help me a lot. What I like most is that she understands all life constraints, and does not give any exercise which would be too difficult to stick in your busy schedule but really suggest realistic things to do so that you can get better. Above all, she is a very caring and approachable person you can talk to which is a great support in these times where you can't always share all intimate details with anybody else.
I was recommended to see Gail at PhysioActive for my diastasis recti. Following two c-sections, two large babies and bad advice from a personal trainer at a large gym I thought my core muscles would never be fixed and I'd even considered surgery. Gail was a breath of fresh air - finally someone who was sympathetic, knowledgeable & confident that she could help me. I saw her weekly for about three months and experienced results beyond my expectations. My core is still a work in progress but I have total confidence in Gail helping me progress even further. I have recommended Gail to many girlfriends who suspect they are also suffering from diastasis recti. I only wish I'd seen her sooner.
I had a shoulder injury for many years and even surgery didn’t seem to help. I was recommended to Denis for physiotherapy treatment and within 3 months, he solved my problem completely. His diagnosis was spot-on and his treatment was highly effective. Denis is an extremely competent physiotherapist and I have no hesitation in recommending him to my colleagues and friends. They, too, have benefited immensely from his treatment.
