Base on his ample clinical experience in Australia, Vincent is enthusiastic about sharing and what he has learnt with Taiwanese physiotherapists and helping the public to benefit from physiotherapy.

Treatment Philosophy

Vincent's treatment philosophy is to tackle the problems behind clients' main complaints. Vincent employs a current, modern pain neuroscience paradigm, Biopsychosocial model, to analyse clients' problems. Vincent deeply believes that in addition to assessing the musculoskeletal system, it is imperative to understand the impact of the nervous system upon clients' pain issues.

Vincent sees the client as a whole person, not diseases. He adapts the client-centred approach to listen to the client's narrative, interact and assess the individual problems. By using clinical reasoning skills, Vincent develops an individualized program for each client. The ultimate goal is to not only treat the symptoms, but also empower patients' self management skills.
