More about Miss Cindy Chan Yien San:

Miss Cindy Chan Yien San, who joined us in November 2018, is a Physiotherapist of the Group.

Miss Chan began her career at SGH in 2006 as a junior physiotherapist attached to the Outpatient Spine team and was trained in chronic pain management.  In 2007, she was appointed to represent the Pain Management team which comprises of doctors, clinical psychologists and nurses; to introduce the Pain Management Program to other healthcare professionals during the ASEAN and Singapore Pain Conference.

Miss Chan left SGH in 2008 to practice as a locum in various step-down facilities. Working in a nursing home and community hospital provided valuable opportunities for her to enhance her skills by exposing her to patients affected by orthopaedic dysfunctions, musculoskeletal impairments and other common geriatric diseases.  In recent years, Mis Chan has focused on treating athletes with physical disabilities, sports teams and international performers.  In order to achieve the best results for her patients,  Miss Chan employs a combination of cognitive behaviourial therapy, active modification and graded rehabilitation programs with staged treatment goals.

In addition of her clinical practice, Miss Chan has conducted Pain Management, Ergonomics and Sports-related talks to schools and clubs.  She was also a part-time lecturer at Republic Polytechnic between 2013 and 2015.
