I am Vinod Kumar K.V., Physiotherapist at Back and Body Wellness Center. I was born in the city of Madras, southern part of India. I always had a keen interest in science, but did not know what career chose I was going to make until grade 10. My interest in Physiotherapy started when I had to accompany my mother for her Physiotherapy treatments. I became wonderstruck on how pain could be managed with all physical means and how healing took place in the most natural way. I realized at that moment that Physical Therapy was my future.

I did my Bachelor’s degree in Sri Ramachandra Medical College and Research Institute, Chennai. It is one of the prestigious universities in Madras, having affiliations with Harvard Medical School and University of South Australia. My Bachelor’s program laid a strong foundation for my successful career. With the strong guidance of senior staff members and excellent learning opportunities, I graduated successfully.

As my search of knowledge continued, I became more drawn into treating pain and neurological clients. This interest paved the way for my Master’s degree. I then graduated with a Master’s degree in Physiotherapy with Advanced Physiotherapy in Neurology as my elective.

My clinical practice started in 2002 in a small Physiotherapy clinic; the clinic expanded its horizons and became a landmark in the locality well within a short span of 1 year. My clinical practice had equal share of clients with musculoskeletal and neurological problems. In 2006, I had the opportunity to travel to Sudan to treat a private client due to my expertise in managing stroke clients. I was successful with the venture and spent 3 months in Sudan to rehabilitate my client.

I moved to Malaysia in 2008 and worked with Masterskill University College. I was eventually promoted as Assistant Program Manager – Clinical for Bachelor’s program in Physiotherapy. I then moved to Canada by Jan 2012 as a Permanent Resident. I had the chance to work at CBI health center in Surrey. Living in Canada has been a wonderful experience.
