Tough Times Don't Last, Tough People Do. - Robert H Suller
I was referred to physiotherapist Jonathan from my orthopedic surgeon after a procedure for my L4/5 PID. My rehab experience has been great with him! He is very informative and forthcoming with his teachings and helps you on your road to recovery.
He gives sound advice on dos and don'ts, as well as a fair amount of work as well as 'homework' to ensure you don't slack off. Though it might sound that he pushes a lot, he knows what work is appropriate based on your condition and manages each session accordingly.
I am very happy that i can move my right shoulder quite painlessly now. Thanks to Jonathan... I was diagnosed with right shoulder biceps tendinitis and referred for physiotherapy. Jonathan is very approachable and encouraging. His assessment of my condition was thorough and he was quick to identify the tense muscles around my right shoulder. Using a combination of soft tissue release methods, acupuncture and stretching exercises, i see improvement after each session. During my last session, Jonathan also taught me strength training for injury prevention and building body resilience by improving strength of muscles/tendons.
Highly recommend him because he is hands on and very knowledgeable with the different physiotherapy techniques to help relieve pain and strained muscles.
Had 2 herniated discs on my C4/5 and C6/7 to the point I was having issues with mobility and loss of strength, I saw Jonathan pre and post op, his guidance and sessions have helped me back to recovery. I am now back lifting, running and drumming. The three things which were almost taken from me. Jon has been beyond a savior and I am forever thankful for him being my physio. Nothing but positivity and encouragement. Thank you!

I had a very good experience with Jonathan at Urbanrehab (Paragon) following a shoulder injury. Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable and really helped my recovery go smoothly without any setbacks. I highly recommend Jonathan as PT for anyone that is recovering from an injury or surgery.
I have been having a terrible lower back and shoulders pain due to poor and long sitting posture while working from home since beginning of 2020.
Jonathan came highly recommended by my colleague. Jonathan is detailed and knowledgeable, not only providing treatment but also provide valuable advice. Like my colleague, I recommend JONATHAN :)
I was recommended by my GP to Jonathan for my frozen right shoulder affecting my day to day life. I was not able to lift my hands and do even simple things. Jonathan really helped me to full recovery. He was able to identify the root cause and fix one by one all my problem affecting the movement. He was very efficient in the time available, patiently explaining and answering all questions. He also clarified certain things after the session which is of great help. I will strongly recommend Jonathan for my friends and family

I had a Lateral Cruciate Knee Ligament surgery due to an injury from my job. I was referred to Physiotherapist Jonathan Chan for my rehabilitation. He took time to understand what's my expectations after my recovery. I want to get back into sports and Spartan race etc. He understood and drew up a timeline. His professionalism and passion exceeded my expectations. He was detailed in his analysis and explanation too. Often than not, he always go beyond of what was expected of him, by correcting my foot and knee postures so as to protect myself from future potential injuries. A sincere and caring physiotherapist who posseses the passion in helping his clients to reach their goal.
I had a keyhole surgery on my left knee in November 2019, following which I had a very limited range of motion in my knee. Following surgery, I was referred to Jonathan Chan.
Jonathan put together a rehab plan to increase my range of motion and build my strength in my surrounding muscles. Within a few sessions, my range of motion and strength were developing very well. Various exercises were explained and demonstrated to perform as "homework" to keep up the rate of progress.
Now, 6 months on, I can walk at an intense pace (6km/h) for more than 20km.
Jonathan is very friendly, patient, knowledgable and professional. I thoroughly recommend. Thank you!

I was diagnosed with slipped disc and I’m really glad that I went to PT Jonathan after reading all the good reviews on him! Jonathan is incredibly approachable and thorough in explaining my condition. He is very encouraging and helped me better understand pain management. He incorporated a very holistic approach for my treatment that recovery is not only from physical training but also with healthier lifestyle. He strongly advocate consistency, always sharing tips on exercises I can replicate at home.
I started my journey with Jonathan with extreme lower back pain and numbness in my toes. There are times I could barely sit still for more than 15mins without pain. I have progressed a lot since then, I am able to resume my day to day work and I have not felt this good ,all thanks to Jonathan! Highly recommend him to anyone who needs physiotherapy :)

Physio therapist Jonathan has been the best! He really help me a lot, and I'm getting better and stronger as each week passes. He makes this whole process enjoyable. Highly recommend him, if anyone is looking for a physio therapist
Physio Jonathan has been very active in keeping a close eye on his patients, be it during the Physio therapy session or by checking in on the patient outside of the session. He’s also understanding on the extra needs of the patients, like tailoring a program that the patient would actually like to do. Instead of just asking them to do basic exercises that does no improvement to their treatment
The place itself is convenient, facilities were clean and my appointments were always on time. I had physiotherapy with Jonathan Chan. He was very professional and did a very thorough examination to determine the severity of my condition. I recovered much quicker than I expected. He was friendly and very patience to explain my condition and my doubts. He made sure i was comfortable and the treatment i was getting was helpful.

I was referred to Jon after my shoulder surgery. Really thankful to Jon who guided me through my recovery - from initial rehab/ muscle stiffness release while on sling, to building strength allowing me to lift my arm with support and subsequently up to my ears. Now half yr post op, I'm really glad that I have recovered faster than expected, enabling me to regain my yoga practice.. Thanks Jonathan!
Huge advocate of getting proper care when it involves the spinal cord. Jonathan is nothing short of an expert therapist who helped me a ton in my road to my recover. Highly recommended this fun and gentle person who goes the extra mile to hear and aid in what you exactly need. Thank you Jonathan ✊🏽
I came here to get treatment for my knee pain. It was my first time doing any form of physiotherapy. I'm very happy with the outcome after several sessions with Jonathan Chan. He explained very clearly to me what the issue with my knee was and what I needed to do to manage and reduce the pain. Highly recommended.

I was prescribed physiotherapy post my shoulder surgery to rebuild my shoulder flexibility & strength. It's my first time to have physiotherapy and was very fortunate to have Jonathan as my therapist. Jonathan is very organized keep tracked of my progress and build the programs around my recovery status so i can regain my strength & flexibility very quickly & safely.
Jonathan's office is easy accessible via public transport and very clean & professional. Highly recommend!
Dr. Chee gave me the choice of Urban Rehab Physio for my Knee and I/m definitely glad I chose the Paragon branch managed by Physiotherapist Jonathan.
His precise take on my OA knee and suggestion of effective exercises to strengthen and build the muscle to support the knee. It's tough work on some days but surely the right thing to do as it has improved heaps!
Thank you Jonathan for your professional advice!
I had a near fall while playing foot ball with friends. Since then I experienced pain in my right knee. I went to GP, in turn he referred me to specialist. The first consultant told that he should further examine by inserting camera into knee. Then an another consultant referred me to physiotherapy.
That is where everything went well. Physiotherapist Jonathan Chan listened to my story/history and planned the rehab. Started with light exercises and gradually intensified while I am recovering. Instructed clearly what I should do, what I should not do. Eventually knee pain gone and my legs become stronger as earlier. Looking forward to play foot ball again and do my routine gym sessions. Thanks much Jonathan.

I started with Jonathan for a sciatic nerve irritation, but it ended up doing much more for me than I expected.
Jonathan diagnosed and fixed the initial sciatic nerve injury in 2-3 sessions.
We then moved on to work on my hamstrings and posterior chain.
Years of abuse and ligament reconstructions done on my knee resulted in pains and weakness in my legs. I stopped heavy deadlifts and squats for a long time due to the back and hamstring injuries I would get everytime I went heavy.
Jonathan helped me over a few sessions to get back to deadlifting. Something that I didn't think I would ever do again.
Highly recommend going to him to get a proper assessment and practical ways to improve mobility, stability and to get back to things you might otherwise think not possible anymore due to previous injuries or pain.
I have cervical spondylosis for many years due to age related wear and tear which affected my spinal disc that causing neck and shoulder pain, this have caused me discomfort at work and sleep.
Despite consulting TCM, there was not much improvement. In 2018, I was highly recommended by my Orthopaedic Dr to see Jonathan and I completed few sessions of physio treatment (cervical manual therapy) on neck and spine which resulted in speedy recovery.
My neck held up well for 2years but recently my neck pain exacerbated over stretching heavy task. Without a second thought I had arranged 2 physio sessions with Jonathan. This time, he took a different approach to the problem to rid my neck and back issue. I was so happy that my pains are gone after his treatment. Caringly, he always reminds me keep up an active lifestyle, preserving my movements and varying my posture throughout the day.
Highly recommend him as a specialist physio for necks & spinal issues.
I had a minor ACL injury in end of 2019 on my left knee during a soccer game with my friends. The whole knee was swollen and i was having a difficult time for me to walk. I went to an orthopaedic specialist and he told me to do a surgery for me to be able to recover to return to playing sports. I didnt really want to do the surgery and asked for another alternative. He then transferred me to Urban Rehab at Paragon. There i met physiotherapist Jonathan Chan who assured me that surgery is not required at all for me to recover back to be playing sports. He was calm and understanding of my situation. From there he made a set of exercises which he made me progress slowly in strengthening the affected knee. Asking to continue the exercises at home too. At the same time always assessing the condition of my knee. Always asking how it feels, whether it is getting stronger or any tight spots within the area of the knee. I have been going and doing it for about 4 months now and thruthfully i am back on track. I am able to run, jog and do weight lifting without feeling any pain on the affected knee. Till now i am doing the exercises made by jonathan but with added weights because it really shows results. I want to thank Jonathan Chan for the guidance and moral support in overcoming the challenge that i faced. If anyone who is having similar injuries, i do recommend you to consult jonathan chan as he will be able to help you with your injuries.
