  • byDr Rick Seah, Sport & Exercise Medicine Specialist

    I have worked together with Mr Richard Simpson recently on a lot of common musculoskeletal injuries such as low back pain and knee issues, and the outcomes have been very encouraging. He comes across very well to patients and does take a lot of time to explain the problems and management of them.

    Frequently asked questions

  • What are the common symptoms that your patients tend to present with?

    Pain is the main driver for people seeking treatment, followed by function where they are limited from doing an activity that they want to do. Hence, pain and function will be the two main drivers for seeking treatment.

  • What are the treatments that you're able to offer your patients?

    I offer hands-on modalities such as joint mobilisation, soft tissue work, actual physical rehab such as strength and conditioning. As a clinic, we've got sports doctors, soft tissue team, a sports and conditioning team and specialist sports podiatry. It's very easy to call on other areas if need be. Say, if we needed injections or imaging, we have that at hand. We have ultrasound and stuff like that within the clinic.

  • What are your areas of sub-specialist interest?

    Strength and conditioning is a chief one because of working with higher level athletes, but also because the most evidence for common musculoskeletal conditions is weighted towards lower management and improving tissue tolerance. That comes through strength and conditioning.

    The other one is running, and that's just because I am a runner myself. I have a lot of interest in load management and how to keep people towards their goals. It's very hard to quantify, but probably strength and conditioning and running.
