About

Dr. Russell Pinto, PT co-founded Physiotherapeautics by FAHS (Father Agnel Health Services) in 2014 together with Dr. Roseanna Pereira, PT at Chowgule College in Margao and has big plans for his company. In 2020 he opened the second branch of Physiotherapeautics in Panjim together with his managing partner Dr. Sweezel De Souza, PT, and in July 2021 the third branch, taking over the Physiotherapy and Sports Rehabilitation Department at Horizon Hospital, Margao. In January 2022, the first clinic outside Goa opened in Mumbai, together with his managing partner Dr. Simone George Gomes, PT. The next branch is planned to be opened in Vasco in the first half of 2022.

After his own professional football career ended at a young age due to a badly managed injury, the dream took shape in preventing other players from the same fate by becoming a world class physio. Among the best in his studies and using every opportunity to improve his practical knowledge, he soon started to make a name for himself in the world of Football and Kabaddi. In his 10+ years of practice, he has worked with many clubs:

  • Indian National Team (U-17) FIFA World Cup 2017
  • FC Goa (6+ seasons ISL & Asian Champions League 2021)
  • ATK Mohun Bagan (1 season ISL & Asian Champions League 2022)
  • Dabang Delhi K.C. (Pro Kabaddi) (4 seasons)
  • Indian Olympic Football Team 2015
  • India U-14 Team 2013 (1 season)
  • Goa State Football Team at the Santosh Trophy 2015
  • Salgaocar FC, Youth Development (1 season)
  • Brazil Football Academy (1 season)
  • Dabang Mumbai Hockey Club (1 season)
  • CE L’Hospitalet, Spain (internship)
Being an ISL veteran, Dr. Russell has started post- and pre-season training camps in our Margao clinic with access to its big artificial turf, gym and other facilities of Chowgule Sports Centre. With our team of other ISL veterans like the sports physician Dr. Sandeep Kumar and the Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Nelson Pinto, we are well prepared for all kinds of rehabilitations.
 
Last but not least, why don’t we let Dr. Russell introduce himself:
