Interview with Dr. Wissem Dhahbi
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
My interest in Biomechanics and sports rehabilitation started with research which eventually led me to go for higher studies in these fields and after completing my masters and Ph.D. this became my career.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
My advice would just be that this field involves a human body, which is very sensitive. So, one must have a very detailed and clear understanding of the human body to ensure no harm is caused by any exercise or treatment being offered.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Since I moved to Qatar Khalid Alamir has been great support to me. He’s the owner of Pref-up, so we both have the same field. He has helped and motivated me through my 4 years in Qatar. He has corrected me when I was wrong and advised me when I needed it. So, I’m very thankful to Khalid for supporting me in my journey.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
There are many people out there that do not know the correct posture of many things. Take a simple example of our posture when we are using our cellphones. Incorrect posture can harm our body’s structure resulting in pain. So, I aim to guide people about how to take care of their body’s structure and help the ones that are in pain through different exercises and training.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
Pablo said, “Never underestimate the difference you can make in the lives of others. Step forward, reach out, and help. Reach out to someone that might need a lift”. Helping, in general, is a good deed. Growing up we all go through pain physical or mental, like everyone else I did too. I found people that helped me through both types of these pains. But sometimes we fail to help people mentally but helping someone through their physical pain is always possible, so I believe an individual must do whatever he can to help.
