A big thank you to all Specialist Rehab Group Singapore Therapists as well as our close partners, Fullerton Healthcare Group, supporting Ops team. Without you, this could not be possible.
Specialist Rehab Group Singapore did a recent SMS survey to follow up with existing and discharged clients (recent up to 1 year ago) who was treated in our clinics in Raffles Place and Orchard Road, to determine the level of outcomes following physiotherapy and rehabilitation treatments with us in Specialist Rehab Group Singapore.
SMSes was sent out to 1484 clients asking specifically about how they are doing now after receiving physiotherapy, hand therapy, Chinese Medicine, massage therapy etc with us, with reference to performance at work, sports and life in general.
We received 150 replies which we grouped the responses according to “Positive” and “Negative” outcomes.
To be precise, I will define what it means to be categorized as “good”, “great” and “awesome” outcomes.
Out of 150 clients who replied back to the SMS, 139 of them (92.67%) fall into this category of Good, Great and Awesome Outcomes.

The almost raw/semi-edited candid replies by clients:
Hi Nigel, can't do sports still as the wrist feels worse lately. I'm considering asking the doctor what's going on to the wrist...
Hi, I'm still having knee tendon pain and back aches. Not doing sport now. I tried to do yoga last months. Once per week. My knee tendon areas will get more pain after that, so I stopped doing yoga..
Hi Nigel. Good to hear from you. Finger is still stiff and cannot make a full fist. I did see the dr but have not yet decided whether to get him to anasthise the finger and bend it fully. If I do I will be back to see you ! Hope all is well with you.
Not much improvement so hv not gone back to sports. But its rather inconvenient to go for the treatments so hv not continued.
Still aching upper back shoulders and neck. Any slot for physio tmr?
No not yet..... i still feel pain while running...Few weeks back i encounter pain while jogging on fast pace but i try to slow down and it get better... is my leg now able to do normal sports? And i seldom exercise on my leg....
I still have trigger finger every morning. Should I consider surgery to.solve the problem?
Not quite, but I just find your service too expensive for the value received. I'm applying methods searched on Internet
Alamak you misdiagnosed. I got tennis elbow and need an injection to stop the swelling. On top of that cannot claim for you fee.
