Dr. KIRAN CHALLAGUNDLA is a name that needs no introduction to the Indian Badminton arena as far as physiotherapy is concerned. A modest demeanor, an unassuming style, a down to earth behavior are hallmark of Dr. Kiran, who believes in staying away from the limelight & let his work speak for itself. Working truly behind the scenes to support champion sports persons, he was the first full time physio to join the P. Gopichand Academy in Hyderabad in 2009.
