Tell us your background in Physiotherapy

 

I finished my bachelors degree in Physiotherapy in 2016 at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (P.L.M) and got my license August of that year. Immediately I started working for an international organization as their physiotherapist. I handled multiple cases of work-related injuries and chronic pain which is highly common in their organization. It wasn’t easy treating their pain because you need to dive in and respect what they feel. Likewise, I try my best to let them understand that physiotherapy is a two-way street. Both patient and the physio need to work together to get the best results. Receiving these cases led me to pursue Neuromuscular Therapy as my specialty wherein I combine soft tissue work to ease the pain and after I let them do corrective exercises.

 

Exercises is really the bread and butter of physiotherapy. Manual therapy is only and adjunct to get the job done. This is how I work with my patients to achieve their maximum potential and walk-out the clinic pain free and experience best care.

 

What are your interests

A lot actually. Usually, my ice breakers are common with people nowadays, QUARANTINE. I ask them how’s their experience and I go from there. This is interesting and very common for all people now. Politics, local and worldwide, is also an interesting discussion but I take caution tackling this topic. Another interesting topic for me is sports like basketball, football and motorsports (Formula 1 racing)
