Goh 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.
Tay Jia Zhi
Jia Zhi obtained her Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Physiotherapy from Trinity College Dublin and started her professional career at Tan Tock Seng Hospital in 2012. She has worked in all the various clinical teams before, specialising in treating patients with musculoskeletal injuries and chronic pain. After five years, she came out to the private sector and has worked in two different clinics, with one being a Pilates-focused physiotherapy clinic. While there, she developed a strong interest in teaching Pilates to assist in rehabilitation. Being Polestar Pilates rehabilitation trained, she often incorporates Pilates exercises into her treatment session to help her patients achieve a stronger and pain-free body.
With more than 10 years of experience working with different types of patients ranging from adolescents to the elderly and from high-performance to recreational athletes, Jia Zhi realised that they often present with movement and breathing dysfunctions that they are not aware of. Being an ex-competitive netball player herself, she also completely understands that no matter how minor an injury is, it will affect one's performance during a game and increase the chances of re-injury if not properly rehabilitated. As such, Jia Zhi strongly believes in building mind and body awareness along with postural control and breathing patterns in her patients, perfectly incorporating her understanding of physiotherapy with Pilates.
In her spare time, she finds joy in her Pilates practice, spending time with animals, and seeing different parts of the world through travel.
Dr Claire Low
Claire is a dedicated and experienced Physiotherapist with over a decade of expertise since graduating in 2012. Her journey began with a brief period in private practice within a Physiotherapy & Pilates setting. After her undergraduate studies, she worked in Singapore General Hospital, where she honed her skills in both inpatient and outpatient settings. She then transitioned to Sengkang General Hospital when it first opened its doors in 2015. This presented her with the opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of a new healthcare institution.
In 2018, Claire achieved a significant milestone by obtaining her clinical doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). This advanced degree has allowed her to broaden her horizons and take on the role of a first contact practitioner, a role she could practice in Sengkang General Hospital (SKH). During her time at SKH, Claire was a key member of the STAR (Spine Triage) clinic, where patients had the opportunity to see a physiotherapist first to quickly manage their pain, reducing the long waiting time to see a spine surgeon in the public hospital. Her expertise and dedication in this role significantly improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.
It was also during her DPT studies that Claire became lymphedema trained and certified. Upon her return, she initiated the Lymphedema service at SKH, where she has been running a multidisciplinary clinic in collaboration with the plastic surgery department. This partnership ensures timely care for both acute and chronic patients, enhancing their quality of life.
In addition to her physiotherapy expertise, Claire is also Pilates trained and certified. Her journey with Pilates began in 2005 as an adjunct to ballet and she formally started her Pilates training in 2009, alongside her undergraduate studies. In 2012, Claire completed her examination in London, UK, attaining her Polestar Pilates (Rehab) certification.
She is a member of the Singapore Physiotherapy Association, International Association of Dance Science & Medicine (IADMS), Performing Arts Medicine (PAM) Special Interest Group in Singapore, as well as a member of the Lymphedema Society of Singapore.
Beyond her clinical expertise, Claire is passionate about working with performing artists to educate and empower them about injury prevention and supplemental training. She has given talks and workshops at NUS Dance, YST Conservatory of Music, and SAF Band, to name a few. Most importantly, she is a full-time mum to 4 young kids, who are her pride and joy.
Chiang Ji Long
Ji Long's interest in exercise and movement started early in his childhood. Practising Taekwondo, since the age of 9, he come to appreciate the significance that form and technique have on performance and injury causation. While training to obtain a 2nd Dan black belt in Taekwondo, he was further exposed to the world of movement. This piqued his interest in the musculoskeletal system and kinesiology. His determination to help others achieve their mobility goals and prevent injuries increased further after suffering a knee injury requiring surgery.
To achieve his above goals, Ji Long successfully enrolled in the highly coveted pioneer cohort of Singapore Institute of Technology’s Degree with Honours in Physiotherapy programme and obtained sponsorship for his studies. After graduation, he spent 3 years treating a myriad of conditions in one of Singapore’s most prestigious hospitals, gaining a plethora of experience, especially in rehabilitation, orthopaedic and plastic reconstruction cases. These experiences provided a great breadth of knowledge for Ji Long, combined with his effort to cover greater depth in this short period to provide better quality holistic care for patients. His efforts to provide quality care have merited him patient-service accolades yearly during his time in the hospital.
Ji Long values the importance of time greatly (without compromising results), and as such, is always on the lookout for the most efficient and effective methods. This applies to his approach in treating individuals as well, striving to ensure his interventions are efficient so that his clients have time to spend with the other things they value and return quickly and safely to the activities they love. Besides clinical work, Ji Long is currently an adjunct faculty member at the Singapore Institute of Technology, helping students bridge the gap between theory and practice. In his spare time, Ji Long enjoys a good balance of exercise, outdoor nature-related activities and indoor gaming.
