Tell us about your background in physiotherapy:

I graduated from Keele University (UK) in 2018 and began my journey as a physiotherapist in an NHS teaching hospital. I completed my rotations over three years and worked in private clinics alongside my full-time job. During this time, I gained experience in sports injuries, post-operative rehabilitation, work-related conditions.

In 2021, I decided to pursue a Master’s Degree in Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy at the University of Birmingham (UK) to further develop my skills and interest in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Here, I worked alongside world-leading researchers and completed studies that would further the physiotherapy profession.

Currently, I aim to adopt a holistic and research-informed approach to physiotherapy assessments and treatments. I treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions with an emphasis on manual therapy and exercise-based therapy and rehabilitation.

What are your interests?

Growing up, my interest was always in playing football/soccer. However, I’ve been branching out towards other sports which include golf, rock climbing, hiking and recently picking up surfing. During the pandemic, I started following Formula 1 Racing as well.

Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventure you’ve been on.

In 2019, I had the opportunity to complete an open water scuba diving course in Bali. This trip boosted my appreciation for the outdoors and the environment. There’s no other feeling like being in the clear blue water and seeing a myriad of animals and creatures in the sea. Since then, I have actively decided to be more conscious of looking after the environment to the best of my ability. I would definitely recommend scuba diving to anyone who hasn’t tried it!

I also experienced an injury to my low back from playing football in high school. I had shooting pains down my leg and I struggled to walk well for a couple months. I used my interest and fascination to learn from different resources and created an exercise rehabilitation programme for myself. Eventually, I managed my injury and return to normal activities. This really gave me an idea of what sports injuries and low back pain really felt like so I could relate to others who come to physiotherapy too.

What is your area of expertise?

I treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions with a specific focus on manual therapy and exercise prescription. I have a lot of experience in treating work-related injuries, whether it is manual or desk-based jobs. I take special interests in back and neck pain and sports-related injuries and keep updated with the newest research in these specialties.

What is the most fulfilling part of this job?

The most fulfilling part of the job is that I get to meet new people every day. It’s amazing that I get to be a part of an individual’s life and to help them with the pain that they are experiencing. It’s really heartwarming to see my clients with a smile knowing that their pain has improved or that they are able to return to their normal activities without any limitations.
