|Adele graduated from the School of Physiotherapy at Curtin University, Western Australia in 1995 and proceeded to do a Master of Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal) in the year 2000. She has over 13 years of clinical experience, spent mostly treating national athletes with sports injuries in the Singapore Sports Council. She has also previously worked in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy settings in hospitals including the Singapore General Hospital and the Alexandra Hospital.
In addition to clinical experience, Adele was also a lecturer for the Sports and Musculoskeletal modules in the diploma course for Physiotherapy at the Nanyang Polytechnic. She was also the course coordinator for the certificate course in sports injury rehabilitation targeted at fitness, sports trainers, physical educators and coaches.
An avid recreational runner, Adele has experienced firsthand the frustrations of hip and back pain with running due to a scoliotic spine and a poorly formed hip joint. She has been able to overcome these challenges and is running painfree.
Adele believes in constantly upgrading her professional skills and always tries to apply her knowledge to benefit her patients’ progress and recovery. She is currently furthering her knowledge in the pilates system in rehabilitating sports injuries and improving sports performance. She believes that core training or what physiotherapists call “proximal stability training” can reduce the recurrence and occurrence of overuse injuries of the spine and peripheral joints, such as knees and shoulders.
