Specialist Rehab Group Singapore SMS Survey August 2014

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.

  • Positive Outcomes” generally refer to clients having an improved outcome, be it less pain or better performance (further sub-categorized to “Good Outcomes”, “Great Outcomes” and “Awesome Outcomes” – definition below).

  • Negative Outcomes” refer to clients who still experience pain and discomfort

POSITIVE OUTCOMES

To be precise, I will define what it means to be categorized as “good”, “great” and “awesome” outcomes.

  • Good Outcomes” refer to clients achieving baseline of having no pain, but experiences the occasional but mild pain during a particular activity/exercise, but this pain doesn’t last long/insignificant

  • Great Outcomes” refer to clients achieving the same level of performance in their sports, work and life as before having the injury

  • Awesome Outcomes” refers to clients totally crushing/dominating high-intensity activities and exercises

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.

Some of the examples of almost raw/semi-edited testimonials (by categories):

Definitely helped a lot! - Nur Filza M.A. (HIIT = high intensity interval training)

NEGATIVE OUTCOMES

There is 11 out of 150 clients who reported outcomes that are classified under the “Negative Outcomes” category. “Negative Outcomes” refer to clients who still experience pain and discomfort.

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.

Still pains on upper knee

Hey Nigel, the back pain still exists.

Analysis:

Of the 11 Negative Outcomes, 7 is related to frequency/number of sessions, 1 is an active patient, 1 is a mother to a young baby, 1 is related to price and 1 more is related to location inconvenience.

  • 3 clients came ONCE for treatment
  • 4 clients came infrequently e.g. 3-4 sessions over a 2-4 months period
  • 1 is still an active client, still receiving treatments from us and compliant
  • 1 found the location of Raffles Place and Orchard Road inconvenient so stopped coming
  • 1 felt we didn’t provide enough value, so stopped coming
  • 1 is a fairly compliant client, but has young baby – likely it’s taking care of baby (motherhood) that is aggravating/contributing to the continued pain

CONCLUSION

This survey is encouraging to several groups of individuals:

  • Clients, existing and future clients (patients), who can be at ease that such positive outcomes has been achieved with us (92.67% clients achieve good, great or awesome outcomes). However, there are exclusions to this, especially when the appointment frequency is inconsistent. Also, in some cases, prolonged pain may be contributed by other life events and responsibilities, of which, we will do our best to increase the recovery rate.

  • Specialist Rehab Group Singapore, as our vision and dream as clinicians is to provide the best clinical-outcomes related physiotherapy and rehabilitation services solutions, on top of providing good experienc for our clients. We will continue to do our best to serve you and your loved ones =)
