Patient’s Picture

Ms. Raj Dagur
Patient at AktivOrtho

My life has changed and I feel like a new person. I am confident to do much more than what I could do a year back and definitely feel more emotionally empowered.

Ms. Raj Dagur: I came to know about AkthivOrtho through a friend who was suffering from an ailment in her back and was treated by Dr. Mueller and his team effectively which finally enabled her to walk. This motivated me to visit the centre. The upper region of my back and the shoulder area were weak and I was also suffering from marginal frozen shoulder which rendered me inactive. I used to experience chronic pain in the general area. Earlier, I had visited a local medical institution, but the treatment was only partially beneficial since my whole body was not addressed. After analyzing my problem very methodically and patiently, Dr. Mueller and his team assured me that I can improve. The diagnosis was so accurate that the treatment plan was planned accordingly within a very short time. After the treatment, my neck collar has been removed, I can lift more weights, can sit for a longer time and also able to do more exercises than I could ever imagine to do. AktivOrtho follows a holistic approach and what I noticed was that every patient is viewed as a unique case. The physiotherapist worked on my muscle relocation and strengthening of the core and used to constantly encourage me to adhere to the laid down regimen.

My life has changed and I feel like a new person. I am confident to do much more than what I could do a year back and definitely feel more emotionally empowered.

Comments by Physiotherapist Ms. Huma Kausar

Ms. Raj Dagur was diagnosed with postural dysfunction and muscular imbalance of the upper back . The treatment plan was designed in such a way that myofascial release of the cervical and thoracic region was resorted followed by spinal mobilization. The patient was also treated for spinal stabilization, rib mobilization and overall core stabilization. Some dry needling sessions were also given to release the nodules in her tight muscles. She has been an excellent follower of the prescribed exercises and has improved immensely. There are no complaints of aches and pains, stability has been achieved in the upper back along with overall postural corrections. As a result, she feels confident about her body’s capacity to sustain the rigors of daily activities.
