Ajay Upadhyay

Instructor for Ergonomics and MSD, President - RGWS

After earning Bachelors in Physiotherapy I grew interest towards Sports and Ortho so I got enrolled me for Masters in Physiotherapy which I completed in 2011. Soon after my post graduation I became a faculty member in Institute of Health Sciences which comes under Utkal University, Bhubaneshwar. Continuing the same role in imparting education, I'm presently working in Ayushman College of Physiotherapy in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh that is located in Central India.

I intend to work for Physiopedia with my motivation of further study and research in Physiotherapy. The inspiration comes from my previous job as a Lecturer in Bhubaneshwar. I had an impulse to get PT students excel in their performance and I was keen to increase their interest in the subject with the latest upcoming in our field. I'm also the President of Royal Global Welfare Society registered under Indian Government Society Act 1860. Its running an academy who runs online courses on Basic Office Ergonomics and Ergonomic Workplace Analysis as well as on Fibromyalgia - A pragmatic approach to Gauge, Manage and Ergonomics. We have also organized free webinars under it. Recent webinars were on Dry Needling and Physiotherapy for people living with HIV/AIDS.

I've also served for more than a year as a Clinical & Academic Physiotherapist in an organization in Bangalore, India. My field of expertise was Musculoskeletal Disorders, Sports, Pediatrics and Ergonomics there.

I'm passionate about teaching and I would take Physiopedia as a platform to share and learn more about Physiotherapy and would try and give latest updates about the Evidence Based PT.
