Sharmala has been working as a physiotherapist for the past 13 years. She has had work experience in community rehabilitation and the Singapore Sports School, before she decided to pursue her interest in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy in the private sector (from 2010). Since pursuing her interests, she has discovered her passion in treating dance-related injuries as well as conducting talks and workshops on sports injury prevention and management, taping and proper office ergonomics.
She has conducted workshops with various organizations like Arts Fission, DNATA and O School and will continue to pursue her dreams of reaching out to the arts community. She was involved in providing on-site physiotherapy for the musical Chicago in 2010 at the Esplanade Theatre.
She works with student dancers from various schools in Singapore, and have a very good working relationship with them as well as their teachers. Her dedication to the dancers above and beyond their injuries is what makes her different.
