For the first time in its history, the IMU Chiropractic Programme is being led by its alumnus. On 1 Jan 2020, its alumnus, Dr Wong Yi Kai, was appointed as the IMU Chiropractic Programme Director. He takes over the baton from his predecessor, Dr Tamara Gien Pooke.
He has been actively participating in the development of Chiropractic in Malaysia by being involved in the Association of Chiropractic Malaysia, Federation of Complementary Natural Medical Association Malaysia, World Federation of Chiropractic, and Traditional and Complementary Medicine Division, Malaysian Ministry of Health. He hopes that more Chiropractic practitioners in Malaysia will have the passion in this field and stand up to serve the profession.
Dr Wong Yi Kai has been practicing Chiropractic for 7 years and worked at two chiropractic centres within Klang Valley prior to joining IMU in April 2015. He started working at IMU Healthcare as a clinician and later transferred to be an academician in 2017. Although he is an academician, he still mantains his practice at IMU Healthcare.
He believes that everyone could benefit from chiropractic care. Most people perceive chiropractic care as a treatment option for pain management, but in fact, it is not just that. Chiropractic care is a holistic approach for health maintenance and wellness care. To improve public awareness on the restoration of natural spinal alignment, he often uses an analogy that describes the importance of regular car maintenance service, to help the public relate better. Apart from that, Dr Wong Yi Kai hopes to provide affordable and evidence-based chiropractic care to the community.
