Who am I?
I am Kai Sigel and I was born (1985) and raised near Stuttgart in the south of Germany. My focus with Physiotutors lies more on the content side of the videos and I am always trying to make sure that we include the latest research as well as statistical data. Alongside Andreas I fill the role behind and in front of the camera. In my free time I love going to the gym and I go for a run every once in a while. I basically enjoy every ball sport, especially soccer. If I’m not involved in sports, I like to play the guitar or to just read a good book.
Why do I want to become a physiotherapist?
After graduating from German high school in 2005, I studied 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.
My studies at the European School of Physiotherapy (ESP) in Amsterdam proved to be a 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?
First of all I am trying my best to make sure I'll receive my MSc degree in Manual Therapy within the next two years from the SOMT in Amersfoort, so Amsterdam will surely remain my home base for the next years to come.
Next to that I am putting all my 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!
I also love working as a physio and to teach - so while I enjoyed being a guest lecturer at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam last year very much, I will be working part-time in a private practice in Amsterdam from now on again.
