My Professional Destiny: My Career as a Chiropractor

Destiny are the events that are supposed to take place, in a man’s (human) life in the present or the future. It all began from a very personal experience for Vicknesh Kandasamy A/L Gunasekaran.Vicknesh had completed his Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and just like most teenagers he was torn and had no idea on his next step, unsure of which degree or foundation he would like to venture into. 

Unsure of what needs to be done, his father suggested for him to take A- levels as it is a ticket to many places. His uncle then did mention to him about the career pathway of a Chiropractor. Unsure of the depth of it as most of us do not quote Chiropractor on our usual career conversations.  Little did Vicknesh know that his life is about to change just by accompanying his brother, who had a fall and was diagnosed with a slipped disc, to his Chiropractic visits. 

Through these visits, Vicknesh understood the beauty of a Chiropractic Journey.Fast forward, Vicknesh decided to take part in an IMU Open Day and he had the opportunity to meet a Chiro lecturer who passionately spoke about Chiropractic and what are the benefits. That kind of sealed the deal for Vicknesh and his next step was – IMU Chiropractic Degree.He was fortunate that his whole journey was amazing except for the exams and other stress. Never doubted his choice of degree and enjoyed every semester. 

What he likes about IMU, the social and student life is amazing. Something he misses dearly today. He got involved in a lot of activities and misses the IMU experiences. He met a lot of friends and networks for his personal and professional development that is helping him grow his career. He graduated with a First Class Honours in Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Chiropractic (IMU) and was in the dean’s list of graduands with high academic achievement.

Every day it was something new, he learned the different depths and aspects of Chiropractic and understood the process better. 

He also had the opportunity to meet the CEO of TAGS Spine & Joint, who told Vicknesh about an opening of a position in Miri and he would like Vicknesh to move there to take charge of the clinic. Without any second doubt, Vicknesh uprooted to Sarawak with wide hopes and dreams of finally becoming an official Chiropractor. 

For Vicknesh practicing as a Chiropractor for 4 years in a small town started to plateau but that did not stop him from being passionate about his professional journey. It was not an easy decision, as he is leaving a life, he made in Sarawak. He is now looking for other ventures to deepen his journey as a Chiropractor. 

He took up dry needling courses in KL after he graduated - he did his level 1 in 2017 and completed it in 2018. Moving forward Vicknesh was approached to become an instructor for this course in Malaysia. Vicknesh is currently working in a chiropractic center in Kajang.
