Esther Lan is a Principal Physiotherapist at Physio & Sole Clinic. She firmly believes in a collaborative approach with her patients in order to achieve positive outcomes. Motivating clients to be an active participant in their recovery process is key. Therefore, understanding the client’s concern, identifying the contributing factors, and educating her clients to understand their condition are integral parts of her management plan. She encourages clients to continue staying active past the rehabilitation period as one can reap benefits from regular exercise, such as preventing injuries and prevent or manage chronic diseases.
Esther had her undergraduate training at the University of Melbourne and graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2006. She went on to further her studies and obtained a Masters degree in Clinical Physiotherapy at Curtin University (Australia) in 2012.
