Clinical Biography

Sakshi grew up in New Delhi, India. She graduated from Delhi University with a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy. After completing her degree, she worked as a trainee with one of the leading physiotherapy networks in Denmark known as FysioDanmark. There she assisted in the treatment sessions and learned about managing sports injuries in Handball players.

She was actively involved in the football team in school and considers active training an essential component of life, and this made her dive into the field of sports science. She worked at a sports science centre in India as a sports physiotherapist along with strength and conditioning trainers, sports nutritionists, and sports psychologists to provide a holistic approach to an athlete’s recovery process after an injury. She extensively worked with ACL injuries treated conservatively and surgically and documented their phase-wise recovery for research purposes using a rehabilitation protocol.

In 2019, she certified as a dry needling practitioner and uses it along with other forms of manual therapy. She has a master’s degree in Sports and Exercise Physiotherapy at Cardiff University. She received her certification in leading a pitch-side medical team by completing a Sports Trauma Management course delivered by LUBAS Medical.

Personal Statement

I believe physiotherapy was my calling because I wanted to help people with a very non-invasive approach, and I have always promoted a healthy lifestyle as it creates a positive impact on people’s lives. When I started studying, the subject drew me even more inward, and I knew I was on the right path. It proved to be that science wherein I could give my 100 per cent and achieve a positive result in people’s recovery. I believe in adopting a holistic method and understanding a patient’s problem through a biopsychosocial approach.

My passion for work has only increased over the years of practice. I feel great to be able to impart knowledge of the human body which functions almost like a machine and can achieve pre-injury levels, if treated by the right set of hands. For me, patient education is the first and most important step in the recovery process. It needs to be understood that undergoing physiotherapy does not mean having to stop your functional activities entirely, but moderating them is the key.
