Get to know your therapist – Isaac

About Isaac

Isaac Wong - PhysiotherapistI enjoy playing tennis because it requires endurance, agility, strength, speed, balance, coordination, and a host of other skill sets to excel at the sport. Tennis will teach you to use your brain to react faster and a wide array of skills and shots to win. There will always be better players than you, but the fun thing about tennis is when you put the effort in to improve your game which  and move up in skill level. I try to play tennis about twice a week. I join a Singapore tennis group which allows me have a chance to meet a diverse range of people as well.

While studying in the UK, I also picked up horse riding. I have always had a love for animals and my 2 favourite animals would have to be dogs and horses. Horse riding is not just a sport, it’s a partnership that you have to nurture. The connection that can be achieved with a horse is hard to put into words. As you get to know your horse, they get to know you as well. I enjoy horse riding in my spare time as it helps to make me feel happy and positive, and lower my stress levels. Riding also allows me to relax and unwind outdoors which gives me the opportunity to experience and interact with nature, take in the fresh air, smell the foliage, see wildlife and feel closer to nature. This is a rarity in this day and age as we tend to spend so much of our time indoors, we should take every opportunity we can to get to head outside for some exercise and fresh air with one of our most beautiful animals.

What inspired you to become a physiotherapist?

Like many others, my first experience with physiotherapy was receiving treatment for various injuries that I suffered as I was growing up. In addition, I knew that I did not want a desk bound job because I wanted to remain as physically active as possible. When I was serving in the army, there was an incident where I suffered from severe back pain due to heavy lifting and bad posture. I remember not being able to stand and walk for 2-3 days after that incident and my mobility was severely affected. In order to fix my problem, I went to see a doctor who then referred me to see a physiotherapist. This was my first encounter with a physiotherapist and he managed to diagnose my problem accurately and solved my problem within a few sessions. This encounter made me realize the importance of movement and the profound ability of our bodies to heal. The human body has many functions which we often take for granted in our everyday lives. Physiotherapists facilitate this capacity to help people reach their physical goals. Helping people to be healthy and active again is a good feeling while making a living. My inspiration comes from my desire to work with people, help solve simple-to-complex problems, and use my hands and other skills to help people physically get back to the activity or sport they love.

Describe your most memorable experience.

One of my most memorable experience would have to be seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland 2 years ago. My sister and I decided to go on a holiday together and we chose to go to Iceland to experience the culture and scenery. We were there for a week and instead of visiting the touristy places we decided to be more adventurous so we sought out a local guide from trip advisor to take us around for a few days. He was a native Icelandic local who grew up in the mountains outside of the city. My sister and I booked a midnight hiking tour with him where he took us up the mountain to look for natural hot springs for us to take a dip in while gazing at the stars. It was winter in Iceland when we were there so it was freezing cold. It took us a while to find a natural hot spring to dip into because sometimes the water would be too cold while other times it would be too hot. We already had our swimming costumes on and when he found a suitable spot where the water was the appropriate temperature he asked us to undress quickly and jump into the water. We were not expecting to see the northern lights as it was forecasted that the activity would not be strong that night. Optimal conditions for the Northern Lights are cloudless nights with little or no wind. As I was soaking myself in the natural hot spring almost immediately I started to see the thin, wispy lines of the aurora borealis over the peaks ahead. To the untrained eye these faint manifestations of the Lights at first look like clouds. It’s not until photos are taken that you realize those streaks are actually green and aren’t clouds at all, but instead the Northern Lights. There are many people who go on organized Northern Lights tours who never see a thing, not even a thin wispy line of the aurora. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, more swirls and lines started to take shape over the mountains in front of me. I couldn’t believe my luck, the swirls kept increasing in magnitude, dancing around the sky. I mostly saw greens, but also flashes of reds and pinks in the Lights, rare colors to observe. Over the next hour or so, as I slowly froze, the Lights continued their show, giving me a private audience to one of the most amazing natural spectacles in the world. I stopped trying to take photos and laid back on the ice, letting nature wow me with the performance. The solitude and the beauty were amazing and the ensuing experience is one I know I will remember forever.

What would you like to learn and why?

I would like to learn how to cook. Even though I’ve lived abroad for 3 years while I was studying and have had to prepare my own meals I would say that my culinary skills are not that great. I cook to get by and to fill my stomach. I want to learn how to cook because I would be able to control the ingredient that goes into my meals and cut out the unhealthy additives and preservatives used in processed food. Cooking at home is very convenient and the taste is better compared to eating out.

You can find Isaac at Parkway Parade and Novena Square!

I went in when i felt a sharp pain in my back that traveled to my left leg. For my first session with Slyvia, she asked me about my nature of the pain i felt and asked me to bend over. Immediately she could tell me what was causing the pain and that it was a small issue, easily fixed over a couple of sessions. There after she massaged the affected area to relieve the tension that was causing the pain. All this was done within a 30min session! After the first session my back was already alot better and i did not feel anymore sharp pain. Slyvia arranged additional massage therapy sessions that she felt i needed. The massage sessions were really good. For 1 hr they are able to get in the problematic areas i never knew i had issues with and massage all the tension out. I felt super relaxed after each session.Slyvia also arranged pilates sessions for me with Rohini to help me with how i was not bending down properly like i should, which was the reason why i felt pain as i was hinging from a particular spot on my back. Rohini was also aware that i have diastasis recti and focused on helping me build up a stronger core which also in turn helps my back. With each sessions it created a greater awareness of my own body and the bad habits that it has. Rohini also gave great advices when i told her i wanted to strengthen my upper back.Everyone in Core Concepts knows exactly what they are doing. It was such a great experience and different services work together brilliantly to help me heal and function properly.
Very professional and caring Therapists. My left foot has been hurting for a month. After 3 sessions, 80% of the pain is gone. I just need one more session and I think I should be fine. Thank you very much.
I had an excellent sports massage by Wan Ling, which was very different from the usual massage I've tried elsewhere. Wan Ling skillfully and systematically loosened every muscle in my upper back and neck over the course of an hour. If anyone is seeking relief from tense muscles, I would highly recommend making an appointment with Wan Ling.
Came to see Xue Ting with a broken shoulder for the last 6 weeks and was impressed with her attentiveness and ability to make me feel me feel comforted in my condition . Very dedicated and good therapist indeed .
They adopt a scientific and personal approach. The therapists put in a lot of effort to diagnose the issue before attending to it. Overall, I would strongly recommend their professionalism and methods.
Really good sports massage! Booking process was efficient too :)
Friendly and really professional service! I immediately felt welcomed the moment I stepped into the clinic! The physio offered me great advice beyond what I had asked, which allowed me to have a deeper understanding as to why I had my issue in the first place. With this kind of service, I would honestly recommend this physio if you are serious about getting better.
Thoughtful and sincere service. Highly recommended!
My mum received her first Apos treatment. We intend to continue until her hip muscles become strong. We believe in the treatment as we saw how amazing it was. The idea was simple. Really love that she can be herself again, for long term. The hip and knee cap operations offers 15yrs. Hence we reject the cost and short-life. My wish is that the treatment cost can be lowered and more are aware of this treatment. God bless and thank you team.
Look for Soo, he is a great physiotherapist . Always communicating and always asking for my feedback. I’m on the right path to recovery all thanks to Soo. Two thumbs up.
Xue Ting has been working on my troublesome QL, hip girdle - basically the whole left lower kinetic chain! She has been patient, strong and cerebral in her approach to my 48 year old compensatory mechanisms. Her strong massage will finish with an assessment of muscle imbalance and poor activation with finally a retraining back to healthy movement.I’m impressed! Thanks Core Concepts!
I went from barely understanding physical therapy for injuries, to highly recommending Core Concepts to friends and family for their aches and pains. Ken was knowledgeable, patient and explained symptoms and consequences in a simple, relatable manner. I hope more people will come to understand how physio is a much better alternative to short-term painkillers.
Ken is really amazing!
The physiotherapist here explained the problem very well and provided me with exercises that helped improved my condition.
I have been experiencing great pain on my shoulder coupled with occasional numbness on my arm. Thanks to Ken Liew, I felt so much relieved after my first session. He was very patient and knowledgeable and had definitely made my 1st visit to a physiotherapy clinic a very memorable one. Thank you so much Ken
I have been experiencing knee pains lately especially walking up and down the stairs. The pain was so bad that I was very concern. I chanced upon CoreConcept on FB and book an appointment with them at Camden Medical Centre. My therapist was Ken Liew, he is very professional and knowledgeable. He did a thorough job to assess my condition. To my surprise I felt immediate relieved on my knee after the first session with him! Amazing! Looking forward to my next session. 😊
Hi I am Sally and I am in my late sixties. I have endured a year of thigh(joint) pains and thought that it must be due to old age. Visited Core Concepts at Novena and after only 2 sessions, my condition improved so much that I was able to climb stairs easily again. THANKS to my Physiotherapist Samuel Ong who is extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable.
I have had several sports related injuries and Core Concepts has saved me and put me "back to new" each times! The therapists are excellent - knowledgeable and professional, and the receptionists (Carol, Adiqah and Rin) are always friendly and helpful. They even give me oreo cookies for my children! :)
A very friendly and professional physiotherapist as well as receptionist within the clinic. Jordan Cave is very patient to help my right knee to recover.
Highly recommended for sports massage
Extremely friendly staff and therapists! Folks Novena Square are just simply smiley and happy. Coming here towards the end of the work day always brings up my mood. Therapist and coach are fabulous. My condition improve so much that I can even start to train up some of my predominately unrealized problems. Highly recommended!
I go to Novena and Cheryl is my therapist. She was upfront from the get go about my neck condition. I liked her honesty and said we'll give it a try. I was better after 4 weekly sessions and continued to go to her every 2 weeks. With her help I am in a better condition, had to put in effort on the exercises she taught me as well.
Li Hoong is a very dedicated sports massage therapist and functional trainer. Her ultimate goal is the client's holistic well-being. Highly recommend.
i have tried different physiotherapy sessions with almost 10 physiotherapists in india and in Singapore, my back pain was treated well by CHERYLL, with God's grace , i was pain free only after Cheryll attended to me. Thank you Cheryll and core concepts for the great experience.
I am working with Yiren on my knee after my ACL/MCL reconstruction and recovery has been good! He does a thorough job to assess my progress each session and challenges me to push myself to get to various milestones. He's extremely friendly and helpful despite my many questions. Thanks!
After many different physio and massage sessions in different places, my experience with the core concepts team has been the best. I started seeing them for sports massage, and now for my knee rehab. The level of care and attention makes me want to do more for myself. Isn't this most important when one tend to slack off with the prescribed exercises?
Very friendly and professional physiotherapist as well as receptionists within the clinic. Dr. Issac Wong is easy to approach and came up with alternative ways for me to strengthen my weak thigh muscles and it really helped in reducing my knee pain! Thanks :)
The best physiotherapist ever. Cheryl is really good. Doesn't shortchange me of time and make sure I feel better before she lets me go. The front desk staff are great too. Very accomodating and friendly. Thank you Carol and Farrah. Only thing if they can give instructions to how to go to their place will be great. Usually only unit number but do give some details like mrt exits and directions to lift and such will be excellent. Coz I almost got lost in 2 different places. Overall still love core concept because of Cheryl! Thank you Cheryl!!
Found out about Core Concepts last year through social media and made an appointment as i was experiencing some neck and shoulder discomfort after a traffic accident. My therapist was evidently experienced and was able to pinpoint the cause of my aches. The one thing i loved about my experience at Core Concepts is that they are not like typical physiotherapists who simply prescribe take home exercises, instead my therapist was extremely hands on, helping me to massage my neck at the right spots to relief the stiffness - best massage ever! Would highly recommend Core Concepts!!
Easily the best physio clinic I've been to.
The only physio clinic i trust! A unique approach to treating pains, you simply have to try it out for yourself. Have recommended many friends and family and core concepts has not disappointed. Thumbs up!!!
From the reception to the therapist, they are friendly and nice. I was taught on a 2 steps stretching to strengthen my leg muscles that I can do it myself daily and It did help :) Will recommend to anyone who wish to have therapy sessions.
Knowledgeable and brilliant!
-emails with advertisement and birthday wishes came, but they didn't think that their customer (with 4/10 sessions remaining in his package) would have expected a reminder of ANY kind if his package was already expiring. I asked the clerk from my last visit how many sessions I had remaining, and she told me 4, with no update on the expiry at all. -assumed I wanted a physiotherapy (PT) appointment when my past SMS have always been for sports massage (SM); whenever I asked for "available slots", they would give me the slots for SM. yet they suddenly gave me the list of available slots for PT ytd. I'm also to blame for not verifying and reading their long SMS carefully.-their masseuse is very good though, skilful and respectful. They ask important questions to understand their client before starting on the SM. I'd still return even though the administrative process is lacking.
