My Profile Summary - Please contact me for an up-to-date copy of my resume:
Let me begin by introducing myself.
I am a self-employed consultant physiotherapist, with a practice spread over North and South of Goa. My practice is hospital based and I conduct my clinics in Healthway Hospital, North Goa and Royal Hospital, South Goa . In addition I am a visiting consultant to the hospitals in the vicinity for In-patient treatment.
I was Head of Department at the Manipal Hospital, Goa, an associated hospital of The Manipal Healthcare Systems, India , until September 2013. The Physiotherapy Department was setup by me in April 2003 .I have had the opportunity to help & treat patients with varying problems in the fields of orthopaedics, neurology, general medicine, cardio-thoracic surgery, general surgery, sports medicine, paediatrics and cancer patients both at the outpatient as well as in-patient levels.
In 2006, I took up the role of team physiotherapist to the Goa State Football Team and the Under 21 INDIA Football team for the 1st Lusofonia Games held in Macau.
In 2010- 2011, I took up locum posts in Bahrain and helped design and set up the Physiotherapy Department at the newly opened Royal Bahrain Hospital. I was involved in the setting up process right from its inception, to its successful running.
I completed my Bachelors in Physiotherapy( B.P.T) from Kasturba Medical College under MAHE( Manipal Academy Of Higher Education) University which is a deemed university .I completed my 6 month internship in march 2003 and started my clinic at the Manipal -Goa hospital in April 2003. I have also done a 6 month long course in Yoga Therapy which is primarily patient related and attended various C.M.E. programs on topics like sensory integration, physiotherapy in sports injuries, mobilisation techniques for the spine and peripheral joints.
I am licensed to practice in the UK and Kingdom of Bahrain as well.
I firmly believe in being PROACTIVE rather than REACTIVE. If we can prevent injuries from happening and promote preventive health care, we will be able to help everyone on a larger scale. Keeping in mind the above objective, I have been involved in creating awareness for various targeted audiences, corporate entities, hospitality industry and to the general public through newspaper articles, television and cable networks and radio.
I have developed a fitness package with the sole aim of promoting a PROACTIVE approach towards optimum physical and mental health.
In today's busy times when everybody lives a robotic life we need to stop and look at ourselves for a while. The body needs care just like any machine to perform in an optimum manner. You don’t need to repair it only when damaged.... why not keep it charged, ready to go at all times.
I love being a physiotherapist, nothing gives me more pleasure then to be able to bring smiles to people's faces.
P.S.: I also have recently acquired an MBA degree in health-care management through Sikkim Manipal University.
