Singapore Business Awards 2023

Dec22281 Providing a range of physiotherapy services, Benchmark Physio Pte Ltd is committed to delivering superior clinical outcomes through rigorous training and extensive experience. We take a closer look at the company, its services, and hear what its satisfied client base has to say, in the wake of the company being named in the Singapore Business Awards 2023. Established in 2022, Benchmark Physio Pte Ltd was created to meet the needs of discerning healthcare consumers who seek high value, evidencebased physiotherapy care. Utilising considerable experience, APA titled musculoskeletal physiotherapist, Ng Hong Kai ably runs the company. APA titled musculoskeletal physiotherapists are highly qualified physiotherapists with expert knowledge and skills in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. They undergo a rigorous selection process to ensure that they achieve and maintain exceptional standards of clinical experience and knowledge. Hong Kai has been practising musculoskeletal physiotherapy for nearly a decade. He is the first Singaporean to achieve dual credentials as both an APA titled musculoskeletal physiotherapist and a tertiary trained exercise scientist. His broad and extensive skillset allows him to create solutions that are simple, effective, and tailored to a client’s musculoskeletal needs. His beliefs in continuing education and self-improvement led him to complete his Master’s in Clinical Physiotherapy (Musculoskeletal), where he had a chance to participate in formal research into knee osteoarthritis under the supervision of world renowned researcher and physiotherapist, Prof Peter O’Sullivan. He enjoys treating all musculoskeletal conditions, with a particular interest in lower back, neck, and knee pain. Hong Kai is assisted by exercise physiologist, Raymond Teo. Exercise scientists and physiologists are experts that develop interventions that improve performance, health and fitness, wellbeing, and that assist in the prevention of chronic conditions. With more than 15 years of experience working with athletes, healthy individuals, and clinical populations locally and overseas, Raymond works closely with injured athletes through sports massage, strength and conditioning, and functional training to return them to recreation or competitive sports. He also combines sports massage with strength and conditioning to manage chronic conditions to promote physical and mental wellbeing for individuals to cope with daily activities. His vast experience working with different populations and his knowledge of biomechanics and physiology enables him to address the root cause of a limitation before returning to sports and physical activities. Raymond loves working on the biomechanical variations affecting the physiological parameters of well-trained and elite cyclists and runners. He has a keen interest in transferring knowledge from literature to applied science for endurance sports, which includes all testing, monitoring, and several aspects concerning performance and recovery for athletes. Together, the dynamic duo, both of which have been fully trained in leading universities in Australia and the UK, combine their knowledge and extensive experience to operate benchmark physio successfully. It is thanks to this teamwork that the firm was recently recognised in the Singapore Business Awards and bestowed with the prestigious accolade of Best Evidence-Based Physiotherapy Care Provider 2023. The pair have many satisfied and loyal customers on their books – here are what just a handful have to say about Benchmark Physio. “The service and sessions at Benchmark were pleasant and I looked forward to them every week!” enthuses J Chong. “Hong Kai planned the movements according to my lifestyle and routines, and I was able to get back to my usual CrossFit sessions after three months!” E Syn agrees that the services offered were excellent, and remarks, “Physiotherapist, Ng Hong Kai and his staff are friendly. He took the trouble to explain the objectives of each treatment, ensuring that I am properly informed about what to expect and how to monitor my progress and adjust the home exercises. With the knowledge and advice given to me, I have very effectively progressed from daily ankle pain even when sitting down with no activity to being pain-free in five weeks. I will definitely recommend my friendly and friends.” Finally, C Portia comments on how she would highly recommend the services she received, stating, “Hong Kai (the therapist) is very patient and professional in handling my sprain and chronic lower back pain. He gave me different variants of exercises at home to recover. The staff and environment there were also nice.” Contact: Ng Hong Kai Company: Benchmark Physio Pte Ltd Web Address: Best Evidence-Based Physiotherapy Care Provider 2023
