At Physio Avenue, we want to help our clients recover so that they can spend quality time at work and with family.
But today, matching a client’s busy schedule to qualified physiotherapist at a clinic location is time consuming.
Because we believe your time is precious, we will bring our clinic to you!

What can cause lower back pain?
Sprains and strains are a common cause of lower back pain. A sprain occurs when a person overstretches or tears a ligament, while doing the same to a tendon or muscle causes a strain.
Back sprains and strains can result from overuse, sports injuries, twisting awkwardly, or lifting something too heavy or improperly.
The symptoms of back sprains or strains can include tenderness, swelling, and muscle spasms.
What are the main causes of bad posture?
- Age. As we age, we usually begin to stoop lower and lower to the ground—oftentimes because our bodies become less flexible and agile. Naively, we avoid movement and exercise all-together because we think we’ll be in pain or discomfort as a result. Without muscle strength, our bodies cannot stand erect.
- Weight. Extra weight around the midsection can pull the pelvis forward taking the spine out of alignment and adding stress on the lower back. Likewise, women with larger breasts carry extra weight in their chest that tends to pull them forward.
- Fashion. Too tight of clothing, high heels and heavy bags can all cause back pain for one reason or another. Here’s a few things to be aware of when you get dressed in the morning:
- High Heels. High heels push the body’s center of mass forward, taking the hips and spine out of alignment and placing additional strain on the back, knees, ankles and feet.
- Unsupportive Bra. Ill-fitting bras can affect the curve of the spine and lead to upper back problems. Research shows that most women wear the wrong size bra, leading to extensive hunching and straining as compensation for discomfort.
- Heavy Bags. Lugging a heavy backpack, bag or purse around by one strap can cause the disproportionate shift of weight to one side, leading to neck and muscle spasms, as well as low-back pain.
- Sitting On Your Wallet. Sitting on your wallet can cause your pelvis to twist, leading to misalignment of the spine and potential sciatic issues.
- Worn Out Shoes. Stilettos are hard on your back and flip flops don’t provide correct support but even “good” shoes that have worn out soles could change your posture and the way you walk, causing back pain.
- Pregnancy. As your belly grows during pregnancy, the shift in your center of gravity changes. As a result, you may gradually — even without noticing — begin to adjust your posture and the way you move. This may result in back pain or strain.
- Technology. We are bending further and further over our devices these days—in fact 58% of us are spending 2-4 hours per day staring down at our smartphones with our heads at a very sharp angle. The effect? A big crick in the neck, 60 pounds of pressure on the spine, and poor posture.
- Pain Cycle. When you experience pain in one part of your body, you tend to compensate for that pain by putting your body into a different position. The new position compromises another part of your body (and likely means you aren’t sitting or standing with good posture). And so the cycle begins.
- Poor Nutrition. Low nutrition can directly affect the bones and muscles in the musculoskeletal system which decreases the strength the body needs to hold itself in an upright position.
- Desk Job: The wrong chair, improper desk setup (including poor monitor height) and lack of breaks can all contribute to keeping our spines straight in the workplace. On average, people are sitting at their desk jobs with their neck and head forward and shoulders hunched for more than nine hours a day.
- Habit: Like any bad habit, the habit of poor posture is difficult to break. Just like going to the gym for the first time can cause a lot of discomfort in untrained muscles, it can be uncomfortable to reverse poor posture by sitting up straight.
What are the advantages of physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy treatment may involve therapeutic exercise to improve strength, range of motion and endurance and to correct postural and muscle imbalance, joint mobilisation, manipulation and soft tissue massage, as well as stretching and trigger point therapy to reduce stiffness and to relieve pain.
Does physiotherapy really work?
Physiotherapists have been trained in the use of exercise therapy to strengthen your muscles and improve your function. Physiotherapy exercises have been scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ways that you can solve or prevent pain and injury.
Expecting twins was physically exhausting, especially given my petite frame. My body was stretching and my bones were shifting - it was getting more and more painful as the 2nd trimester progressed. I was thankful to receive CJ's contact, and even though I had never done physio before and was unsure if I would really benefit from it, I decided to give it a go. CJ's gentle voice and "magic fingers" made me look forward to every session. Apart from being a physiotherapist, she taught me various forms of pilates exercises that I diligently did each night, which helped improve my mobility. I was handed over to Cerise further into my 3rd trimester. Apart from teaching me stretches that could accommodate my heavy belly, I enjoyed her company as she shared her own experiences of motherhood. Amazingly, I slept through the night after each session with Cerise. Pre-natal physio has definitely helped me cope with the physical demands of pregnancy and I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for physical relief and willing to do the stretches taught.

I have decided to do something about my weakened & bulging abdomen (5 months postpartum) with a physiotherapist focused in this area, very pleased with the explanation of my abdomen condition, exercises through the 2 hour and the follow up daily exercise (10mins) catered to my issues. I'd highly recommend all mummies to follow up with their postpartum abdomen issues which gynaecologist won't look at.

“Our children need our best self”
“One afternoon after the birth of Lara, CJ found herself lying in bed. She was unable to get up due to neck pain. Lara was crying, dishes were unwashed and her work incomplete.
Sharing her story with mums, CJ discovered many of them also suffer from pain and post-natal conditions. Although easily treatable, mums sacrifice their needs to be the pillar of support for their families.
CJ started to empower mums on post-natal recovery and joint care. Her physiotherapy and pilates services were delivered to the mums’ homes at their convenience. Inspired by these mums and their encouraging results, CJ co-founded physioavenue with partners. With a dedicated team, CJ aims to deliver the most convenient and seamless recovery experience to our time conscious clients.”
