I’m Joanna, a freelance Principal Occupational Therapist working in private clinics located in Novena, Orchard and Tampines.
An occupational therapist and ergonomist by training, I specialize in hand therapy and upper limb rehabilitation, providing quality therapy services for clients with a variety of hand and upper limb conditions. These include fractures, sprains/strains, repetitive strain injuries, nerve injuries, tendon injuries and complex trauma injuries.
I also have extensive experience in the provision of ergonomics consultancy and workplace evaluation services, as well as the delivery of ergonomics talks, workshops and forums to corporate and public sectors.
I am a firm believer in building good rapport with my clients and enjoy engaging with individuals from all walks of life. A proponent of client-centred care and advocacy, I strive to ensure that my interventions are customised to meet the needs of each unique organization or individual.
Check out my blog for helpful information and tips for common upper limb conditions and ergonomics. Remember, prevention is better than cure!
Man, through the use of his hands, as they are energised by the mind and will, can influence the state of his own health.~ Mary Reilly, OTR, EdD

I graduated from La Trobe University, Melbourne (Australia) with a Bachelor’s degree in Occupational Therapy (1st class Honours) in 2007, and attained a MSc in Health Ergonomics (Merit) from the University of Derby (UK) in 2015.
After more than a decade of clinical experience working in Changi General Hospital and Sengkang General Hospital, I am currently providing private hand therapy, ergonomics consultancy and health journalism services.
When I am not spending time with my wonderful kids and husband, I enjoy running, travelling, as well as the occasional binge-watching of Netflix.
