About Chun Kiat
Chun Kiat has been a Ministry of Health Allied Health Professional Council licensed physiotherapist since 2012. He developed an interest in physiotherapy after seeing a physiotherapist for his torn meniscus during his National Service. He subsequently pursued physiotherapy studies after being awarded the Singapore Health Services Health Science Scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of South Australia.
Before starting Milestone Physiotherapy in 2022, Chun Kiat worked at the largest public health cluster from 2012 to 2018 at both their acute hospital with specialists, and their tertiary primary care polyclinics alongside general practitioner, assessing and treating acute and chronic peripheral and spinal musculoskeletal conditions, nerve conditions, sports injuries, and chronic pain. He also spent nearly five years in another private clinic group before setting up Milestone Physiotherapy.
After seeing patients suffer from chronic non-specific pain, Chun Kiat developed a special interest in the neuroscience basis behind chronic pain. He spends his free time keeping up with the latest research, focusing on pain sciences and tendon rehabilitation. He likes to learn about the different movement patterns required in various kinds of sporting and functional activities to help his clients achieve their functional goals as soon as possible in the rehabilitation programme.
With more than 10 years of experience as a sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapist, Chun Kiat has managed clients across a wide demographic and spectrum, which helps understand the different needs of various age groups and occupations. He has professional working experience with professional martial arts practitioners, lifters, rowers, and dancers, among other types of sportsmen and sportswomen. He also works regularly with clients suffering from vestibular dysfunction that affects their daily activities and sports. He uses techniques like manual therapy, dry needling, shockwave, and targeted exercises to correct his clients’ movement issues and manage their pain.
In his spare time, you can find Chun Kiat lifting at the gym, or sharpening his Brazilian Jiujitsu at The Gentle Art Academy, while working on his Master of Sports Medicine with the University of Melbourne.
