When did OPRC begin?
Joselito dela Cruz started his own clinic when he qualified as an Osteopath in 1992, he named it “Pain Relief Centre (PRC)” in London UK. His travels since then led him to work in Beijing and Berlin before coming to Singapore in 2001.
What does OPRC team offer?
OPRC team consists of the front desk staff who are the face and first contact for all our patients. The front desk staff Maz has been with us for many years and have personal experience with osteopathic treatment and clinical massage. Our more recent receptionist Ms Hana has been introduced to our service hence more able to describe our scope of service.
The clinical part of the team consists of an Osteopath and one Clinical Massage therapists, who work together with access to computerised patients clinical records so patients get a seamless transition from seeing two different therapists. As a patient you will won’t have to repeat yourself or describe in detail your situation again. Osteopaths refer for Clinical Massage when a more extensive muscular release is required and vice versa Clinical Massage therapists refer to the Osteopath when patients are not responding as expected or when patients have new injuries that require more examination.
Our clinic computer system allows us to offer treatment even if your main therapist or practitioner is on leave or on holiday. Your continuing recovery is important to us and by having every therapist and Osteopath access to your medical records, your recovery will not be affected. Of course, your medical records are not sold or passed on to unauthorised individuals.
