I worked with Lorenzo over several months to rehabilitate a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder. He took me from barely being able to lift my arm to lifting smaller weights and improving my mobility and flexibility to finally overcoming the mental challenge of re-injuring it and resuming my normal quality of life. He was fantastic to work with and constantly supportive and knowledgeable and I can’t recommend him or Prohealth Sports and Spinal enough.
Prohealth and Lorenzo in particular are super professional. Had 6 weeks of sessions with him and felt immediate relief in my foot after couple of sessions , and a major improvement after completing the sessions prescribed by the doctor.
I had a great experience at Prohealth and will definitely be recommending them to everyone I know. I went there for some shoulder pain, and my therapist Renzo was extremely helpful and helped eliminate the pain within weeks. Thank you Prohealth for everything you do!
Needed a last minute appointment with a Physiotherapist for a tight hamstring and they were able to accommodate me quickly with no drama. Saw Lorenzo who was not only really quick and precise to assess my situation but also utilised our session well with a mix of recovery massage therapy and stretching. He also made some great recommendations for some stretches and exercises to incorporate into my workouts. He was vey friendly, detailed, knowledgeable and professional. Would highly recommend him to anyone. The practice itself was very fresh and clean. Overall a fantastic experience.
Tell us your background in Physiotherapy
I finished my bachelors degree in Physiotherapy in 2016 at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (P.L.M) and got my license August of that year. Immediately I started working for an international organization as their physiotherapist. I handled multiple cases of work-related injuries and chronic pain which is highly common in their organization. It wasn’t easy treating their pain because you need to dive in and respect what they feel. Likewise, I try my best to let them understand that physiotherapy is a two-way street. Both patient and the physio need to work together to get the best results. Receiving these cases led me to pursue Neuromuscular Therapy as my specialty wherein I combine soft tissue work to ease the pain and after I let them do corrective exercises.
Exercises is really the bread and butter of physiotherapy. Manual therapy is only and adjunct to get the job done. This is how I work with my patients to achieve their maximum potential and walk-out the clinic pain free and experience best care.
What are your interests
A lot actually. Usually, my ice breakers are common with people nowadays, QUARANTINE. I ask them how’s their experience and I go from there. This is interesting and very common for all people now. Politics, local and worldwide, is also an interesting discussion but I take caution tackling this topic. Another interesting topic for me is sports like basketball, football and motorsports (Formula 1 racing)
