The AktivOrtho™ team at the German Christmas Market – 6th & 7th December 2014
We all enjoyed the German Christmas Market over the weekend. The event is organised annually by the Indo-German Chamber of Commerce to celebrate Christmas the German way.
Our stand was the place to be for inquisitive visitors. We offered on-the-spot consultations with doctors and physiotherapists. Taking part were Dr. (Col.) Rana Chengappa, MD, Clinical Director, Sports Medicine; Dr. Atul Prakash, MD, Medical Consultant, Ms. Taranjeet Kaur, metabolic balance® Coach and Senior Nutritionist, Dr. Govind Singh Bisht, MD, Senior Consultant, Podiatry, and many senior physiotherapists with specialisations in fields such as neuro, occupational and sports therapy, and visceral osteopathy.
Children and adults alike found it fun, interesting and useful to check their balance on AktivOrtho’s special Posturomed machine. Our therapists also organised special activities for children including fine grip exercises, crosswords and mind-stimulating puzzles. Dr. Bisht evaluated several children’s feet for any foot-related abnormalities and offered tips to keep their feet healthy and Aktiv.
Ms. Taranjeet Kaur spoke to visitors about various health concerns related to obesity, and emphasised the importance of healthy eating and physical activity to keep excess weight in check. Many visitors asked her about metabolic balance®, a German-developed weight management and personalized nutrition program exclusive to AktivOrtho in India.
Dr. Rana Chengappa and Dr. Atul Prakash answered visitors’ questions on sports injuries, arthritis and various other orthopaedic ailments.
It was a fun and informative weekend for everybody involved and we are looking forward to next year.
