Mr Prakash Dhital
Prakash graduated with Bachelors of Physiotherapy from India in 2012.
After graduation, he moved back to his native Nepal and help establish a physiotherapy department at AB Care International Hospital in Pokhara. It proved to be a major milestone to the hospital as they saw a huge surge in the influx of patient both in the physiotherapy department and other services. AB Care Hospital has never looked back since.
Being an ambitious professional, Prakash migrated to Australia to further his career in 2014 with his wife Reshma, who is now practising as a registered nurse.
It was not easy initially, Prakash worked hard to obtain his general physiotherapy registration which was a very lengthy and laboured process. He has been working as a physiotherapist in the Ipswich region since 2016.
Prakash has wide range of skill sets but has keen interest in musculoskeletal conditions. His notable expertise is pain management through dry needling, manipulation and mobilisation. Both his patients and former employer speak highly of him.
Prakash is available for appointments on Saturdays.
