Tell us about your background in Physiotherapy.
I’ve been a practicing Physiotherapist for over 5 years. During my first 2 years as a clinician I was based at a physiotherapy center which specializes in musculoskeletal conditions and manual therapy. When the pandemic hit the Philippines, I decided to relocate to my rural hometown wherein I became a sole physiotherapist to my community. I decided to be an independent contractor to a community hospital and became a generalist, where I worked with all types of cases which requires rehabilitation. This experience has pushed me to be creative and resourceful with my treatment approaches.
I realize that education and awareness really go far, when you give patients the right tools and information they can almost self-manage and empower themselves.
What are your interests and areas of expertise in physiotherapy?
It’s amazing how physical and mental well-being are correlated in multitude of ways. It is something that I’ve taken interest in recently. There are a lot of clients who come to us with several physical and functional issues and as a result are also burdened mentally and psychologically. Thus, I’ve been immersing myself with different approaches to physiotherapy and how I can better deliver my services holistically.
I believe that my greatest strength as a clinician is my multi-modal approach to treatment. I give individualized treatment for each client and firmly believe that one size doesn’t fit all. What works for some, may not work for all.
Tell us about a life-changing experience or adventures you’ve been on.
Being a physiotherapist in and of itself has been quite an adventure for me! During my stay in my community, I’ve seen the gap between the demand for physiotherapy services and need of the community. Having seen it firsthand, it is unfortunate that physiotherapy is not as recognized or known how much more we can help with the public. But it has gotten better in recent times, nevertheless.
What is the most fulfilling part of the job?
Being able to see the progress and improvements in my clients is very fulfilling. I am also grateful for the wonderful feedback I’ve received from my clients, hearing how I made a difference in their quality of life or function.
