Mr. Alasdair Spink
Patient at AktivOrtho

´At AktivOrtho, I felt like being at a European rehabilitation centre. I found the services excellent, personal, swift and very efficient. Overall speaking, everything was outstanding. AktivOrtho gave me a better back!´

“I came to know about AktivOrtho through some personal references. In January 2013, I visited the centre for the treatment of my back problem. I had a twisted back and suffered from very painful spasms. At AktivOrtho, I felt like being at a European rehabilitation centre. I found the services excellent, personal, swift and very efficient. Overall speaking, everything was outstanding.

Abdul, a well-trained and highly affable physiotherapist, made me feel at ease and gave me the confidence and feeling that I can overcome this condition. His excellent handling was very reassuring.

Post-treatment at AktivOrtho, I have not had a problem all year. In fact, it was the first time I could remember in my adult life that I have not had back spasms. I saw the western approach of AktivOrtho, Dr. Mueller and his team is significantly different from the approach followed by other facilities. AktivOrtho gave me a better back.”

Comments by Physiotherapist Mr. Abdul Majeed Bhat

“Mr. Alasdair Spink came to AktivOrtho with an acute right side low back pain, which had become severely aggravated over the previous week. He had been having similar episodes for the last seven and half years. He used to take anti-inflammatory and analgesic medication. But this time, the medication didn’t help him and the pain was very debilitating, as he said.

While examining the patient, we found his whole spine stiff and his muscles in severe spasm with many myofascial trigger points. As planned, under the direction of Dr. Gerd Mueller (MD), I started with manual therapy which included spine manipulation techniques, myofascial release, neurodynamics, lower limb stretches, lumbar opening, quadratus lumborum and piriformis release and craniosacral therapy.

It was encouraging to see that the patient started improving after three sessions of manual therapy. The pain level was reduced to zero and his spine was quite mobile as compared to the day he first came to us. After the 5th session, he was fully functional in terms of strength and daily functional activities. And he has been living pain-free since. The entire team of AktivOrtho wish him a healthy and pain-free life ahead.”
