My Profile Summary - Please contact me for an up-to-date copy of my resume:
I presently have license to practice in Ghana and Dubai.
I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Physiotherapy (BScPT) in 2014.
I have extensive experience in manual therapy and most of my work is using manual techniques such as mobilising according to Maitland or Mulligan, Massage, Trigger point release techniques, kinesio-taping (I got certified by Kinesio University USA this year) , exercise therapy, electrotherapy and education.
I have over 4 years of post-internship working experience and no gaps.
My experience is mainly in:
- sports physio (most recent event is serving as the physiotherapist for the Ghana national rugby league team in the just ended Middle-East Africa Rugby League Championship held in Lagos)
- and also in neuro-rehabilitation (as I serve as the sole physiotherapist for a western-standard private hospital close to the airport in Accra Ghana where majority of my cases are strokes).
My skills go beyond clinical knowledge and technical ability. Both patients and advisors have praised my strong communication skills; I am able to effectively explain procedures to patients and answer any questions they have, always speaking in a patient and kindly tone. Even when I am carrying a particularly heavy caseload, I always take the time to speak with each patient, and make sure they feel comfortable and confident in their treatment plan.
I participate in several short courses and workshops organised mainly by US based institutions including George Fox University and Hospital for Special Surgery New York.
I recently got certified as a Kinesiology Taping therapist after taking part in a course and successfully passing an exam organised by the Kinesio University USA.
I strongly believe in evidence-based and activity-based practice.
I am highly adaptable, reliable and disciplined.
I exercise a lot personally as a hobby and I am very healthy.
I am able to travel anywhere and have clean medical and criminal records.
I wish to serve, and hope I will be granted this opportunity.
