Dr Belinda Ting
Belinda graduated from Columbia University with a Masters and a Doctorate in Physical Therapy specializing in Orthopedics and Pediatrics in 2003. She spent close to 10 years in California working closely with Sports Physicians and Surgeons to rehabilitate post-op, orthopedic patients and athletes to achieve their goals. Her love for teaching and clinical work is clear when she achieved her Fellowship status in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy.
She was also a Clinical Coordinator and Clinical Instructor to PT students from USC, Northwestern,SUNY Buffalo when practicing in the US in 2004-2006.
Belinda is the only Fellow in Singapore belonging to the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy committed to advance orthopedic manual therapy. She is also an Orthopedic Certified Specialist since 2006. She is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association and a certified Health Fitness Instructor with the American College of Sports Medicine.
Belinda’s interest in sports began at an early age with her participation in competitive tennis and gymnastics. With 18 years of movement science experience, Belinda began her journey of promoting health through fitness as a Personal Trainer in Singapore. Belinda worked for almost 4 years at a Sports/Orthopedic Physical Therapy Clinic in Palo Alto Medical Foundation where she saw cutting edge surgeries and followed up with their rehab. She saw patients mainly from team physicians: Dr Warren King, Dr Colin Eakin, Dr Frank Chen and Dr Amol Saxena.
In addition to being a Physical Therapist, Belinda is a Pilates Instructor trained by Power Pilates (Classical) and has been teaching Pilates in a studio since 2006. She combines fitness and rehabilitation through core strengthening and dynamic stretching from Pilates. Her background in gymnastics combined with her recent research in this field gives her a very well rounded understanding towards these athletes.
Belinda believes strongly that ‘Our body’s dysfunction is an accumulation of our lifetime of sports and daily activities. It is movement that brought us to this dysfunction and I believe that movement through rehabilitation can bring back function but only through manual therapy can we expedite this process’.
