CLIENT TESTIMONIAL… Hadrien & Alma Carroz Dominique (members of AktivKids™ program)
(Mr. Carroz Damien, father of Hadrian & Alma, shared his experiences of the treatment of his two kids at AktivOrtho™)
“My wife and I joined AktivOrtho™ in April 2013 to get treatment for our own orthopaedic ailments. Then, we learnt about the AktivKids™ program and we let our kids try it. They had no medical condition but I wanted them join the program to help with their posture, balance and fitness and so that they learned how to exercise properly.
Although I have never been to any other centre, I can say there is nothing compared to AktivOrtho™ in India. The exercises are fun and my kids come to play. It is great to have the same physician for the follow-up sessions.
The approach at AktivOrtho™ is very professional and thorough; the best I ever had. It is also good to have different specialist fields in the team.
Now my kids are fit and very flexible. They feel stronger and fitter and Hadrien even lost his extra weight”.
COMMENTS BY PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Ms. Megha Bhatnagar
Hadrien lacked the flexibility and was slightly overweight and became anxious occasionally. Alma lacked the strength, confidence and had poor concentration levels. Keeping their weak areas in mind, I designed a set of fun activities which worked at improving their flexibility, cardiovascular functioning, agility, balance and concentration levels.
Now, they have improved remarkably and this can easily be seen in their extracurricular activities like football and running. Their concentration has improved and they now appear more confident about their physical fitness.
Children are our future and helping them understand the natural yearning of their body for physical activity will enable them live a healthy and Aktiv life. Our main goal is to teach children to include joyful healthy exercising, so that they may learn to maintain an Aktiv lifestyle throughout their life.
Children who are active will have:
- stronger muscles and bones
- a leaner body because exercise helps control body fat
- less chance of becoming overweight
- decreased risk for developing type 2 diabetes
- lower blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels
- strong immune system
- improved self-esteem
- decreased anxiety level
- better concentration levels
- better quality of sleep
- better outlook on life
All parents want their children to be healthy and happy but did you know that children with poor posture also report increased back, neck pain and headaches. Poor posture can lead to unforeseen muscular imbalance. Our specially designed programs AktivKids™ and AktivFeet™ help children with:
– musculoskeletal or neurological conditions – foot problems
– weight management issues – sports injuries
– Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) – development delay
