Panda Li

Position: Physiotherapist & Founder, Women's & Men's Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, Lactation (Breast Feeding) Pain Physiotherapist
Categories: Biomechanical Analysis, Physiotherapists, Sports Injuries, Strength & Conditioning, Women’s Health
Panda is an Australian Chinese Physiotherapist who came back to Hong Kong in 1998. Her accomplished career includes being a former Hong Kong Olympic Team Physiotherapist that began with her own passion for sport, whilst also initially specializing in sports and spinal injuries. Her innate curiosity and demand for excellence lead her to develop her skills as a strong diagnostician for any musculoskeletal issues from injuries related to elite athletic performance to chronic pain. Panda is also a qualified women’s & men’s pelvic health physiotherapist treating issues ranging from incontinence, pre/ post-natal care to sexual dysfunction.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy (La Trobe University), Australia
  • Graduate Diploma Ergonomics & Injury Prevention (University of Queensland), Australia
  • Integrated Systems Model©™ and Connect Therapy©™ Certified Practitioner
  • Certified Clinical Pilates Practitioner (Dance Medicine Australia)
  • Lactation Breast Pain Specialist – Australia

Areas of Expertise

Languages

Chinese (Cantonese) & English

Over the years, Panda has developed a special interest in the complexity of how different regions in the body are connected and the diagnostics involved with knowing the causative factors between these systems.

Whether these problems arise in the lumbo-pelvic area, the spine or joints of the body, the role of these in relation to other conditions such as knee, hip and lower back pain; re-current muscular strains; men’s & women’s health (pregnancy, post-partum care, rectus diastasis, incontinence) is key to effective management of musculoskeletal dysfunction.

More recently, her interest lies in how the thoracic spine and rib cage, the biomechanics of the feet; and cranio-cervical spine work together with the lumbo-pelvic area to enable pain free movement of the entire musculoskeletal system. Such an approach, based on the Integrated Systems Model©™ and Connect Therapy©™ has been extremely effective in treating a large spectrum of physical issues and enabling superior athletic performance.

Another area of interest to Panda is the use of real time ultrasound imaging (RTUI) for effective assessment and training of abdominal, pelvic floor, hip and lower back muscles. In particular, the assessment of the extent and severity of a rectus abdominus diastasis (for post-partum women, but also men who suffer this condition) and the functional importance of these findings. The ability to relate these findings to the whole body and presenting symptoms results in developing an effective exercise program to ensure optimal movement throughout the body. Panda works closely with her team on developing the most effective treatment protocols.

At PhysioMotion, Panda treats the full spectrum of musculoskeletal conditions from women’s & men’s pelvic health through to elite level athletes looking for improved performance.

What our clients say

Panda

Panda has been taking care of me for almost 25 years with acute injuries and surgery rehabs  – dislocated shoulder, broken ankle, ACL repairs, ruptured rotator cuffs, and double knee replacements. Am now 62 and still skiing over 50 days per year and wake surfing / foiling over 70 days per year. So you go figure!

V-nee Yeh

Melanie

I have been coming to PhysioMotion for several years for my frozen shoulders, a weak core, and walking issues. The treatment has always been effective, accompanied with sensible advice, and has avoided the use of long-term pain relief medication. I have also been introduced to Pilates as a preventative measure. Mel always hits the spot.

John Stirling Gale

Lucy

I have been seeing Lucy for the past 3 years and can wholeheartedly say it is because of her that my posture, pinched nerve, and sciatica have improved. She is always attentive and detailed in each session and most importantly, is realistic in creating the plan to recovery. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled physiotherapist.

Mabel Tan

Nathan

For more than four years, I've had mild to severe vertigo every month. I've had every single test under the sun, seen every expert in this city and none have been able to diagnose the condition.  Recently I suffered the worst case ever and was bedridden for more than one week. Within one session, Nathan did a number of tests, diagnosed the condition properly and performed an odd series of therapeutic movements. After a few days with treatment, the condition cleared. It's now been three months and I haven't had a single episode!

Josh Gardner

Gordana

I have been seeing Gordana for many years to help with my recovery from running and multiple injuries.  She has an amazing understanding of body mechanics and I definitely feel the benefit of my regular visits.  I only hesitate to recommend her as she is so fabulous and it is hard to get an appointment!
