DR. JANELL LEE

Dr. Janell Lee is an experienced paediatric physiotherapist with almost 20 years of specialised paediatric experience. She has both local and overseas experience, working in a variety of settings. She sees children aged from birth to 16 with neurodevelopmental, orthopaedic or respiratory conditions. She provides home-based therapy because she believes that children learn best when they are in their familiar environment. It also allows her to tailor the exercises based on their home environment, making it easier for the family to continue with the exercises.


Besides her doctorate in physical therapy, Dr. Janell is trained in specialised assessments and treatments, such as the General Movement assessment for early identification of neurological/motor problems in infants, the neurodevelopmental treatment for infants and children, the Schroth Best Practise scoliosis-specific exercises for idiopathic scoliosis, and is a certified infant massage instructor.
