About Me[edit | edit source]

Arnold F DSouza.jpg

I am a freelance physiotherapist from Mumbai, India. I was a Lecturer at the Department of Physiotherapy, Father Muller College of Allied Health Sciences from January 2019 to November 2020. I have completed my undergraduate and postgraduate studies from the same institute with an excellent academic record, securing the first rank in all four years of the Bachelor of Physiotherapy course and being awarded the Best Outgoing Student of my batch. During my postgraduate studies, I specialized in Neurological and Psychosomatic Disorders. I have seen numerous patients during the course of my career and each patient has been a valuable teacher. I voraciously scour the internet, daily, to keep myself updated with multiple physiotherapy resources available online. I enjoy teaching undergraduate students and providing clinical training to physiotherapy interns. I have a keen interest in research and physiotherapy education. I firmly believe that evidence-based practice is the only way to enhance patient care in physiotherapy, with high-quality research-guided education to future physiotherapists, to nurture them. I hope to pursue a PhD in the near future, to aid me in this endeavour.
