Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.
I graduated with a degree in Physiotherapy (BPT) from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Science, Bangalore. I am a Certified Manual therapist (CMT) and a diabetic educator.
I have been working as a Physiotherapist for more than 5.5 years. So far, I have worked in different specialties like, orthopedic, neurology, elderly care, and pediatrics cases. Apart from Clinical OPD, I have worked in home care physiotherapy services too.
What are your interests?
With an undying passion for travel, I am already my next trip to another city or to the mountains as we speak. I love trying all kinds of cuisines and I spend a lot of time socialising with friends and family and engaging myself in outdoor sports. Also, I love the latest gadgets and I need to get my hands on all the new and latest gadgets around.
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.
The most amazing and recent adventure I have been on is a road trip to Leh-Ladakh from Delhi. The nine-day trip from Delhi to Leh via Manali gave me an opportunity to fulfil a dream of a lifetime. I have always had this wild dream of exploring the vast mountainous terrains of Ladakh valley and lose myself completely amidst the breathtaking beauty that exists there. Finally, I fulfilled this goal in June 2016 and it was one of the best road trips I have had so far in my life and I am sure I will embark on many more in the future.
What is your area of expertise?
I specialise in managing musculoskeletal injury and prevention of it. Along with that I practice soft tissue mobilisation, trigger point release and manual therapy. And the best expertise that I possess is patient counselling, making them understand the way their body functions and how best they can take care of themselves. This personally empowers me to spread more knowledge about how physiotherapy can help people in their daily activities. Apart from that I have conducted ergonomics sessions specifically designed for corporates.
What is the most fulfilling part of the job?
The most satisfying part of my particular job right now is seeing a very sick person recover and return home to a functional life. Walking that daily milestone with a patient is significant. If someone’s struggling with something in particular and you’re able to go on together towards success, then that’s definitely satisfying.
