Ms. Lakshmi Chandra
Patient at AktivOrtho

´I find AktivOrtho significantly different from any other clinic I have visited before. I notice that they not just eliminate your pain but also eradicate its source to make your muscles                                    stronger.´

"I wasn't even able to pull up my socks. Want to eliminate pain- get to the source of it! Don't just kill pain temporarily, eliminate it at AktivOrtho"

Ms. Lakshmi Chandra:  “I came to know about AktivOrtho whilst browsing on the net. I further read about their approach to physiotherapy and I was very happy to try it. I had an inflamed hip (Bursitis) which was diagnosed by Dr. Gerd Mueller (MD). When I first came to AktivOrtho, it was very difficult for me to climb the stairs and perform my daily functional activities like pulling up my socks. Moreover, certain movements of my hip would really produce a sharp pain in my left groin that radiated to the gluteus muscle.

The prescribed treatment by painkillers to calm down the inflammation was given at first which was followed by manual therapy sessions. I was assigned to Dr. Akshay Arora and I cannot emphasise enough how good he is in his approach. He gets to the source of a pain and manages to eliminate it. I was actually able to pull my socks up in the first two manual therapy sessions which was great. The manual therapy sessions were followed by AktivTraining sessions, where I was made to do some cardio and strength training which I otherwise could not do because of my hip pain.

Here’s what I found different at AktivOrtho:

  • I find AktivOrtho significantly different from any other clinic I have visited before. I notice that they not just eliminate your pain but also eradicate its source to make your muscles stronger.

Their approach has been extremely successful and I have resumed my active life and exercise. I will not hesitate to approach Akshay and AktivOrtho for any future problem or to recommend this facility to my friends. I have found AktivOrtho‘s approach far superior than anywhere else.

Comments by Physiotherapist Mr. Akshay Arora

“Ms. Chandra’s chief complaint was severe pain and restriction in her hip movements. Her hip pain was travelling to the groin and gluteus muscle.

The initial assessment was performed and it was found that her hip musculature was very stiff and her joint was hypo-mobile. There were multiple myofascial trigger points in her gluteus muscles.

The comprehensive treatment started based on the first examination and assessment. The initial phase of her treatment was based on manual therapy sessions comprising myofascial release of her gluteus muscles and mobilisation of her hip with a bit of traction, releasing the stiffness from her hip.

Ms. Chandra responded to our manual therapy sessions very well and 80 per cent of her hip pain vanished in the first four sessions. She was completely pain-free within 4 weeks and was then transferred to the second phase of AktivTraining.

AktivTraining was continued for a few more sessions to strengthen her hip. This phase of rehabilitation was more focussed on strengthening and stretching her hip muscles. After her rehabilitation program here, she was given a few exercises to practice at home to maintain her fitness level and perform her daily functional activities painlessly”.

Patient at AktivOrtho

´AktivOrtho treatment was so effective and after the first two therapy sessions, I was actually able to move on my own. Without doubt, the western approach of Dr. Mueller and his team is significantly superior than any other institute.´

Mr. Chitranjan Singhal

I was suffering from severe bilateral hip pain and from acquaintances, I came to know about AktivOrtho. Initially it was very difficult to move or turn and even coughing and sneezing used to be a painful experience. On coming to the centre, I was assigned to Dr. Raj, who diagnosed me with Lumber stenosis. No words can be enough to emphasize how good he is in his approach. He is so sensitive, caring and amenable that any patient would look forward to interact with him. The treatment was so effective and after the first two therapy sessions, I was actually able to move on my own. Without doubt, the western approach of Dr. Mueller and his team is significantly superior than any other institute. The quality of patient care is excellent and it has been a life changing experience for me both physically as well as mentally. The approach to analyzing the ailment and the overall treatment has been above par and this makes it an automatic choice to recommend patients for treatment at AktivOrtho. The professionalism that I saw at this centre undoubtedly places it above and way ahead than other alternatives.

Comments by Physiotherapist Mr. Raj Gupta

Mr. Chitranjan Singhal reported to the centre on a wheelchair under severe pain and was finding it difficult to move or turn. He was suffering from Lumbar stenosis with radiculopathy bilateral leg. The discomfort was such that even sneezing or coughing induced pain. Under the supervision of Dr Mueller, we started with manual therapy and pain relief treatment. This was followed by a plan of flexum / William's exercises.

Neurodynamics, stretching and MFR strengthening of core, gluts and back muscles was also carried out to address the patient's ailment. The therapy given by us was 100 percent effective and with cooperation from the patient, the improvement was distinct and visible. Mr. Singhal started feeling better and the pain reduced to a great extent as a result of which he was able to walk, move and turn independently. Currently, he is using lumbar corset for safety and his strengthening and mobility exercises are going on as per the long term rehabilitation plan. The patient is very happy and is experiencing a better quality of life.

Mr. Yudhavir Singh
Patient at AktivOrtho

I am able to run and am sanguine that my belief in remaining injury free by following the advice given by the physiotherapist shall be vindicated.

Mr. Yudhavir Singh

I was well aware about AktivOrtho since I live in the vicinity of the institution. About five weeks ago, I came to the centre complaining of severe pain in the groin area due to which I was unable to continue running. Perhaps I was suffering from adductor tendinitis. The method of assessment by Dr. Mueller and his team, quality of care by the staff and the follow up of the prescribed treatment has been thoroughly professional and above par. The physiotherapist Mr. Sumit Arora has been very patient and understanding and has been largely instrumental in motivating me to continue with the regimen as required. I can feel a distinct improvement and well on course to recovery. I am able to run and am sanguine that my belief in remaining injury free by following the advice given by the physiotherapist shall be vindicated. I am a different person now and feel a lot more confident.

Comments by Physiotherapist Mr. Sumit Arora

Mr. Yudhavir Singh was diagnosed with Hip adductor muscle Strain B/L. As per the treatment plan, soft tissue release of hip flexors and adductors along with the strengthening of the antagonist muscle group was resorted to. The running pattern of the patient was analyzed and corrections advised accordingly. Within 15 half-hour sessions, the pain around adductors has completely gone. By constant motivation and regular monitoring, Mr. Yudhavir is now able to run without discomfort, flexibility and antagonist strengthening Exercises has shown a great deal of improvement.
