Staff Profiles

  • "Physiotherapist/Physical Therapist"

    Matthew graduated from Nottingham University (UK) and has been working in Singapore for ten years. He is currently undertaking his postgraduate clinical doctorate degree from the USA. Having completed a broad spectrum of hospital experience in acute medical and musculoskeletal care, he moved into the private arena before deciding to pursue his vision for integrative healthcare.

    Matthew has a broad range of interests combining his work as a Sports Physiotherapist for the Singapore Rugby Union, dealing with pitchside trauma and sports injuries with his other interests of chronic musculoskeletal pain and Functional Medicine. His work in Rugby has seen him lead pitchside medical teams at Singapore Cricket Club Sevens, World Rugby 10’s competition, the HSBC Sevens and Super Rugby competitions.

    As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner he seeks the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction through an in depth history and examination to prescribe a treatment plan that deals with root cause, putting the body in the best position to heal itself.

    In addition to rehabilitative exercise and conventional manual therapy, Matthew combines holistic techniques including visceral manipulation and dry needling to form a treatment approach that considers whole body imbalances and restrictions that contribute to acute and persistent or chronic injuries. Matthew initially trained in Chinese TCM needling for pain as part of his Physiotherapy undergraduate before completing further multiple further training in other needling techniques in Australia and Singapore culminating in almost 300 hours of practical training. Now, inspired by the Chann-Gunn approach, his current interest is the relevance of spinal sensitisation and neural drive that contributes to chronic musculoskeletal pain. Of late he had the great privilege of being taught by one of Dry Needling’s founders Dr Jan Dommerholt (Physiotherapist) in the area of pelvic pain. Further training around the hip and pelvis has been supplemented by continuing education courses provided by Dr Alison Grimaldi.

    In order to maximise patient outcome, Matthew regularly draws on the expertise of his team of functional nutritional therapists and physiotherapy colleagues to ensure that the patient is managed from all angles. Matthew has valuable experience treating specialised conditions involving the jaw, neck and shoulder and hip. His interest in the shoulder has been galvanised by the training of Dr Lyn Watson (Physiotherapist) with whom he seeks to align with for optimal management.

    Outside of clinical practice Matthew has had his research on hamstring injuries presented at the Singapore Scientific Congress. Matthew has taught Physiotherapists in China on the subject of back and neck pain and has taught across southeast Asia as a Senior Medical Educator (Medical Trainer) for the World Rugby “First Aid in Rugby” and “Immediate Care in Rugby” courses as well as the RFU Pre hospital Immediate Care in Sport (PHICIS). He has presented to medical colleagues for institutions such as KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital on the topic of pain and in international symposiums on the topic of shoulder instability. He has also sits on the Singapore Rugby Union Medical Committee and pitchside medical education sub committee in helping to direct pitch-side care and education in the region.

    In his spare time Matthew is a keen recreational sportsman, actor, guitarist and singer.
