Monica Laine,physiotherapist, head of physiotherapy department


I earned my Bachelor degree in Physical Therapy at Far Eastern University – Dr. Nicanor Reyes Medical Foundation, Quezon City, Philippines in 2012. In 2021, I went on to earn my Physical Therapy Doctorate degree at Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.


I worked as a sports physiotherapist in my first 2 years of practice, in the Philippines. I moved to Dubai and have been working as a clinical physiotherapist, here at Emirates European Medical Center, for the past 7 years. I was promoted to lead the team in 2021.

I treat patients with a diverse, personalised approach, to improve and resolve different musculoskeletal conditions. This may be through a set of corrective exercises, modalities (machine treatments), soft tissue mobilisations, dry-needling, Ergon Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation (IASTM) and many other tools and techniques.
