CLIENT TESTIMONIAL….Mrs. Manisha Priyam (back and shoulder pain)
“I came to know about AktivOrtho™ through a friend, Kajal Singh. In August 2013, I made my first visit to the centre with acute lower back and shoulder pain. I was suffering from Coccydynia and impingement of shoulder ac joint. My back and shoulder muscles were weak.
I had visited a couple of centres in the recent past where there was less emphasis on exercise and rebuilding; only modalities were given.
At AktivOrtho™, I have experienced quite the opposite. It was the quality of their manual techniques that has relieved my pain. The variety of exercises and a highly equipped space were something I had never experienced before. Here, modalities were given only when needed.
I have received a very focused and diligent care at AktivOrtho™. My physiotherapist, Ms. Nidhi, has an empathetic attitude towards her patients. She has given me a very sincere and patient- oriented attention.
I am certainly looking up. The pain in my lower back and limbs has reduced and my pseudo-sciatic ache, which limited my functionality, is almost over. With my muscles, I feel stronger now.
The western approach makes AktivOrtho™ a focused institution. Once a time has been allotted and a patient has arrived, there are no delays—straight to the work. The physiotherapist also takes a feedback on a patient’s experience and various other inputs. No short-cuts are taken on giving stretches or hot-packs and emphasis is laid on the care part of the treatment.
AktivOrtho™ has given me the optimism and I have to keep at it by working hard”.
COMMENTS BY PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Ms. Nidhi Arora
“Mrs. Manisha Piyam was in big pain when she first came to AktivOrtho™. She had been suffering from severe low back and hip ache, caused by pseudo-sciatica which had muscular compression.
She had also shoulder ache, ac joint dysfunction and myofascial pains around her neck and hips.
Her treatment included six manual sessions (60 minutes each), trigger release, myofascial release, lumbar opening, joint mobilization, sciatic nerve glides around her hips and gentle neurodynamics and muscular stretches-ITB, gluteus.
The objective of the second phase was to focus on strengthening which included gluteal/hip strength training, spine training for back extensors, obliques, abdominals and lateral benders. We also did postural correction, ergonomic awareness, balance and coordination, shoulder/scapular setting exercises and cardio. Now, she is feeling very well and her pain has reduced substantially. Exercises have made her feel stronger”.
