The Osteopath in HK
Thomas Fan is our Osteopath; many know him as an MMA referee and BJJ instructor here in Hong Kong. He is a past European and British BBJ champion.
Osteopathy Dr. Fan focuses on movement health
Thomas Fans' mode of practice is mainy musculoskeletal care. Since Dr. Fan is (he says "was") an elite athlete, he continues his passion by treating with techniques based on achieving movement health.
Whether the pain is from a sports injury or from sitting at the piano or in a long haul airplane seat, Dr. Fan will assess the problem and discuss the treatment plan. He works the muscles and fascia hands on with manual techniques, so a lot of soft tissue work is done in our clinic. This is usually followed up with stability exercises. Sometimes it is sports specific, or general exercises aimed to improve movement that was causing the pain in the first place.
Dr. Fan is highly experienced in dry needling; this was part of his university osteopathy training.
Dr. FAn treats injuries and pain at:
upper limb - shoulder, arm, elbow, wrist and fingers.
lower limb - hip, thigh, knee, leg, ankle, foot
neck, midback, low back and sacroiliacs including sciatic pain.
Rehabilitation of injuries and safe return to sport and work is our passion.
When custom made foot orthotics are indicated, it is common to also teach the patient efficient
walking, running and various sports technique, a system that some doctors refer to as Gmax.
