UK Qualified Physiotherapist
When Yun-Perng was in school, he participated in a variety of sports. He often played his best, but he would hold himself back sometimes because of his painful calf cramps. He was fearful of his calf cramps and the frustration spurred him to help himself and to understand his physiology.
He was drawn towards Physiotherapy because it involved movement and rehabilitation. Initially, he wanted to help himself by improving his own muscle physiology but after years of clinical practice, Yun-Perng developed a strong interest in the subject of pain and movement. He now uses modern pain knowledge and recent research to help rehabilitate people with pain or movement difficulties.
Whilst undergoing his training in the UK, Yun-Perng gained invaluable practical experience through his numerous clinical attachments with the National Health Service. In addition, he had previously interned at various hospitals across Malaysia and Singapore namely Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre (Kuala Lumpur), Penang Adventist Hospital, Singapore General Hospital and Changi General Hospital. Using his skills to serve the community, he has also volunteered at the Special Children Society of Ampang and National Stroke Association of Malaysia (Ampang) on a number of occasions.
Yun-Perng was also involved in the Maybank Malaysian Open (Badminton) 2015 where he was a part of the physiotherapy team assisting the German players. He has also shared his expertise on elderly rehabilitation by giving a talk on Manual Handling and Transfer Techniques at Hospital Sungai Long and during The Star Fit for Life exhibition 2016. In 2017, he gave a presentation about Musculoskeletal Conditions at Tomei Group, Malaysia and about Physical Activity at Progressive Insurance.
Due to his active involvement in the field of journalism, Yun-Perng was invited to share his knowledge on Low Back Pain for The Living Journal.

What I do:
As a Physiotherapist that sees people in pain regularly, he takes his time to listen to their concerns. He communicates his clinical findings with honesty and he takes into consideration the mental and social aspects of health before suggesting any treatment options.
He specialises in combining education, strength and conditioning principles and manual therapy during his treatment sessions. His approach is influenced by the biopsychosocial model and the neuromatrix model of pain. His practise is beyond conventional physiotherapy and he challenges common physiotherapy practices.
On top of his clinical interest, he also conceptualised and designed "THE MYOSIST TOOL". He also foresaw the influence of technology on rehabilitation and developed a virtual reality app called "VIRTUAL ACTIVE REHABILITATION".
