A charming and vivacious young boy from a town with the agriculture cultivating belt in north Tamil Nadu, Dhanajeyan Jayavel grew up watching his blue-collar labours working hard in the yard and fields. He saw them working hard in the fields, loading and unloading heavy sacks of produce to and from the truck and struggling with body pain that seemed to stay throughout the year. He observed them pop painkillers that only gave them momentary relief. Through his friend’s father, who was a physiotherapist in the USA, Dhanajeyan came to know about how Physiotherapy can help alleviate pain with less to no medicine. This sparked an interest in young Dhanajeyan’s heart, and he set his mind to study more about it. When he started on his path to master Physiotherapy, he was least affected by the fact that the country had little interest in the subject and there were only a few physiotherapists then.
Fast forward 2006, Dr. Dhanajeyan Jayavel set up his first clinic in Bangalore, Spectrum Physio. A self-made man, he believes in giving back to the society-just like his role models, Mother Theresa and Ratan Tata-and wish to keep his philanthropic work anonymous. Following his father’s guiding words, to take the road least travelled, Dr. Dhanajeyan has been a recognized professional in his field and also set up an association for physiotherapists- Bangalore Physiotherapist Network- and serves on the board as Founder and Managing Trustee. Dr. Dhanajeyan set up Spectrum Physio to fulfil his ambition of shaping up a team of physio doctors across the globe to help alleviate pain and lead a better lifestyle and to create physiotherapy leaders for tomorrow.

Even during the pandemic, where the usual mode of operations was uprooted and Physiotherapists and Physiotherapy clinics experienced a lot of challenges, Spectrum Physio stood its ground. “Physiotherapy is a treatment where it is impossible to maintain social distancing as the treatment includes manual therapy. However, we urged those patients willing to come down for their appointment to choose online consultation. This decision of ours helped us gain our patients’ trust when the lockdown was lifted and clinics were finding it challenging to generate the trust and make footfall, as everyone was so specific about precautions, sanitization and hygiene. We are expanding our services to various other sectors on preventive spine health care online and offline and looking for investors to expand across the globe, specifically to South Asia,” says Dr. Dhanajeyan Jayavel, Founder, Spectrum Physio.
A Team That Works in Unison

Meanwhile, the academic wing ensures regular training and knowledge transfer by encouraging doctors to take part in panel discussions. Spectrum Physio also conducts weekly academic and administrative meetings, and manager meetings every month, to maintain the quality of service. Each month the team of 30+ qualified and experienced physiotherapists and non-clinical team get together for lunch and participate in activities to renew and cherish the bond within the team.
