Who am I?
I am Kai Sigel and I was born (1985) and raised near Stuttgart in the south of Germany. Next to my work as a Physiotutor I am working in a small practice in Amsterdam 2 days a week, so I'm not losing touch with real life practice (always different than theory) and coz I enjoy working with patients very much. While I'm trying my best to hit the gym 5 times a week, I basically enjoy every ball sport, especially tennis and soccer. If I’m not involved in sports, I like to pretend to be a bit of a wine connoisseur or I'm reading a good book.
Why do I want to become a physiotherapist?
After graduating from German high school in 2005, I received my Bachelor's degree in Business Information Systems at the Corporate State University in Stuttgart. After working for a big company in Germany for 3 years as an E-Procurement project manager, I decided to quit my office job, to go travelling for a year and to follow my passion: physiotherapy.
This passion started due to the fact that I’ve always been interested about health and crazy about sports. During my career as a high-level amateur soccer player I was injured a couple of times and could witness the great work that the physiotherapists did in order to get me back on the pitch again. This decision proved to be a very good choice as I am still as enthusiastic about physiotherapy like on day one.
Therefore, I am trying to share this enthusiasm as well as the knowledge I have gained during my educational and practical career with you through Physiotutors!
Where do I see myself in the future?
After receiving my MSc degree in Manual Therapy from SOMT university in Amersfoort in the summer of 2019 I will be putting even more energy and time into Physiotutors so that we are able to improve what we offer you every day! We have so many ideas with Physiotutors and it excites me to realize them one at a time and to see that we can make a difference for our followers - either during their studies or their professional career! In concrete this means that we will try our best to develop Physiotutors as a brand and try to move into an office space with our company in Amsterdam by the end of 2019.
