Mr. Wing Chan has been working in the field of physical therapy for more than 20 years. His plan of care is to work with every patient to understand his/her own unique situation such as the origin of diagnoses, to maintain and maximize the efficiency of each treatment, and to maximize the benefits of postural training and strengthening exercises. He believes manual therapy is a more advanced form of physical therapy since it requires the therapist to have an open communication with the patients of the treatments and treat the patients as a whole. This form of physical therapy does not have one size fits all approach since the therapists use specific skillful hand placements and precise application of forces to restore joints and soft tissues mobility.
In 2001, Wing has obtained Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy (MSPT) from College of Staten Island. He focused his academic pursuit and clinic practice in manual therapy since 2006. As a result, he is a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT) by the Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Seminars (MAPS). He has broad clinical experiences in various fields such as in-patient neurological rehabilitation for stroke and spinal cord injury, orthopedic rehabilitation for joint replacement and trauma, home care, sports medicine, and outpatient musculoskeletal medicine.
