Mrs. Ramneet Cheema
Patient at AktivOrtho

´I had been treated before ata hospitalbut it did not address the underlying condition. At AktivOrtho, the treatment was more holistic and worked towards strengthening, as well as relief.´

“I came to know about AktivOrtho when I drove past its Gurgaon centre. I was on a three-week vacation and wanted a few sessions of physiotherapy for an old, recurring back issue. I was experiencing muscle spasms due to prolapsed disc. I also had low body strength after my pregnancy and C-section.

I had been treated before ata hospital with physiotherapy using machines. I felt relief from my pain but it did not address the underlying condition. At AktivOrtho, the treatment was more holistic and worked towards strengthening, as well as relief. I also appreciated the amount of information about muscle groups and other things that my physiotherapist, Ms. Pallavi Jain, gave me.

At AktivOrtho, the quality of service was outstanding and on a par with similar care I received in Canada and the USA in the past.  During my brief treatment, I can say I have experienced at least 80% relief from my problem. The approach is different, and much needed, as passive physiotherapy just treats the symptoms, not the underlying cause.”

Comments by Physiotherapists Ms. Pallavi Jain

“Mrs. Cheema came to AktivOrtho with a complaint of frequent backache and pain in both of her knees. Patient had a long history of the symptoms. She had tried different treatments in the USA and the UK but could not find a complete resolution to her problems.

She was diagnosed with Paraspinal Muscular spasms*, core muscles insufficiency (strong core muscles are vital for all body movements) andearly osteoarthritic changes in both of her knees. Initially we focused on the correction of her posture and biomechanical faults. A lot of myofascial releases were done and simultaneously we followed a comprehensive strengthening program for her core, upper quadrant and legs.

Mrs. Cheema was with us for a very short period of time (10 sessions) in which we resolved 75% of her issues. Her back and knee pain was treated to her satisfaction. The strength in her core muscles started to improve and her posture is much better now. A home exercise program (HEP) was also given to sort out her remaining issues and to keep her Aktiv”.

*Paraspinal muscles are the muscles that surround the spine
