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 6 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 did I decide 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 in 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?
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! We have moved into a new office near Amsterdam and have started to build a team around Physiotutors.
