Physiotherapists in Singapore with a focus on tackling
the root cause

Balance Core Physiotherapy Singapore was established in 2013, and our therapists have since treated thousands of patients. With the passion for treating all injuries from the ROOT problems and preventing recurrence of an injury, we have founded Balance Core Physiotherapy Clinic.

The fundamental causes of most musculoskeletal injuries without trauma are inappropriate movement habits that overly stress certain parts of the body beyond the tolerance level. Suppose the underlying errors in movement habits can be accurately identified and properly corrected. In that case, the parts of the body that are subjected to excessive stress can finally have a proper opportunity to recover fully. When the body is behaving in a healthy manner, there will be injury prevention, improvement of muscle strength, and a healthy respiratory function.


Our physiotherapists in Singapore have a deep understanding of human biomechanics and can accurately identify the errors in each patient’s behaviours and the mechanism that leads to the injury. Our clinic is also well equipped with evidence-based and up-to-date treatment approaches, ensuring speedy and comprehensive recovery for every client’s well-being.


Regulated by the Singapore Ministry of Health via the Allied Health Professions Council, all our physiotherapists are fully registered practitioners. Our physiotherapists are also members of Singapore Physiotherapy Association.

We treat a wide variety of conditions, from head to toes, across age groups. Common areas of complaint include neck and back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, and scoliosis.

Our Integrated Balance Approach

Over the years of treating every patient with various injuries and discomfort, we have clearly observed a persistent issue with our present-day health care practices. Most of the standard treatments for physiotherapy in Singapore and many other countries are focused on solving the immediate symptoms and injuries, but little effort has been spent on identifying and intervening the underlying root causes. This has led to the suboptimal outcome for chronic injuries or physiotherapy chronic pain management.


Consolidating years of clinical experience and taking reference to the best practices in Chinese Medicine and Western medicine, our founder Mr Yan Yong (Michael) has conceptualized the Integrated Balance Approach of human function. We have been consistently helping thousands of patients recover from chronic injuries and body aches, and live a pain-free life.

How does it work?

The Integrated Balance Approach of human function means that in order for our body to exert force effectively to complete various tasks, the body must achieve a balance of several factors at the same time, as shown in the following diagram:

Interactive approach

Based on the Integrated Balance Approach principles, we have formulated streamlined physiotherapy treatment services that systematically helps our patients correct their human movement errors, improve their well-being(health), learn injury prevention, and adopt healthy habits that are optimized to perform their functional tasks.


We highly recommend our services that use various manual therapy techniques while using the latest technology and specific exercises training, with optional use of therapy modalities to treat every patient. Our evidence-based physiotherapy treatment plans will be set based on our findings from a physiotherapy assessment and customized to each patient. This physiotherapy treatment process, in general, is illustrated below:
