CLIENT TESTIMONIAL…Ms. Vanda Antelava (Chronic Back & Neck Pain, Osteoporosis)

Ms. Vanda Antelava:

“For the last 5 years, I have been suffering from severe back and neck pain, especially during the evenings, as well as muscular stiffness and constant night pains, making me unable to continue my daily fitness regime and day-to-day functional activities.

 Then I made a visit to India to see my daughter. She tried to ensure that I saw someone who could understand my condition to an extent that I got treated from ground zero and help avoid further deterioration of my health.

By god’s grace, as of now, I have visited the right place in India which is in-comparable. “I believe as I see”. I just have to tell you how impressed I have been with what you have achieved. Your clinic is sort of jaw-dropping.

AktivOrtho’s physiotherapist (Ms. Nidhi Arora) has been extremely attentive and thoughtful while handling my queries and issues. Apart from the clear diagnosis and focused treatment, it has been a unique experience with many surprise elements beyond what one came for. I can’t even begin to imagine how hard you must be working to make this happen; what an extraordinary achievement.

I have to say that apart from the medical perspective which is brilliant, I am just really struck by the atmosphere and the attention to detail that comes from everyone. You know even in the most positive India experiences when it comes to service, there is always something that isn’t done quite right and leaves you slightly disappointed. I think your clinic is the only place where I haven’t gone away feeling that.

I have experienced excellent improvement within a few sessions. I see the change of not only feeling healthier but am also amazed at how one can learn to re-educate one’s muscles and movement capabilities and strike an “Aktiv” balance between one’s mind and body.

My aches have nearly vanished leaving me more aware of what I am capable of. I cannot thank you enough, as even after I leave, I still can continue and maintain all I have achieved, and a lot more by the great help I got through your specialised condition-specific Home Training Program”.

“Ms. Vanda Antelava came with chronic back and neck pain, severe fatigue and night pains which persistently stressed her and made her feel worse while performing her daily functional activities.

We diagnosed her with osteoporosis, muscular dysfunction, spinal imbalance and myofascial pains.

As a result of her poor posture and spinal condition that we diagnosed as Baastrup’s Spine*, we planned a suitable range of rehabilitation techniques starting with initial sessions of manual therapy to achieve:

  • Myofascial release
  • Lumbar mobilisation
  • Restoration of spinal mobility and posture

This was followed by core-activation training and strengthening to support her back better, restoring functional abilities. Balance co-ordination training and weight bearing exercises were also used to trigger bone density build-up to address her osteoporosis condition.

Later, we progressed her plan to include strength conditioning as she was out of pain and felt more energetic with no more medication and fatigue symptoms.

It’s never too late or too difficult to gain what your body already possesses; it’s all about the right guidance and will-power.  We, at AktivOrtho, always aim to give our best to get you through.”

* Baastrup’s spine is an orthopaedic and radiographic condition which often attacks the elderly. The symptoms are: enlargement of the posterior spinous projections of the lumber spine with normal intervertebral disc height and neuroforamina.
