Lower back pain is one of the most common chronic conditions that affects nearly 85% of people at one time or another. People injure their spine or develop back pain in many ways – some while doing basic, everyday activities such as bending down to tie a shoelace or picking up a piece of paper while others due to a strenuous activity like weight lifting.
Whatever the cause of discomfort, our expert in a variety of manual and therapeutic exercise techniques, are capable of getting people back on track in the shortest possible time. Keeping our holistic approach in mind, we work directly with your physician to individually tailor a program to suit your needs.
Our physical therapists provide evidence based rehabilitative services to adult patients with musculoskeletal problems resulting from injuries, arthritis and for individuals who have undergone total joint replacement surgery. Pain relief and functional restoration, such as achieving an adequate range of motion, including stair climbing and walking, are important goals of rehabilitation provided through our physiotherapists. Intensive functional rehabilitation during the subacute recovery period after total joint replacement is known to significantly impact short- and mid-term functional capacity, pain intensity, gait velocity, cadence and stride length, and quality of life.
Our trained physical therapists use a team approach to develop individualized programs to help patients reach their maximum functional potential post their injury or surgery. We offer a broad spectrum of manual techniques in tandem with the most up-to-date therapeutic modalities, exercise equipment and treatment approaches. We endeavour to benchmark with the Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes (FOTO) measures and strive to achieve better results every time.

POST NATAL EXERCISE
Post-natal recovery is simple for many women and a challenge for many others. Due to the changes experienced during pregnancy, many tend to focus on body shape or weight loss. However, from a health point of view, recovery after delivery should be given more priority. Our team of experts is well-trained to help new mothers on this challenging journey. Irrespective of the nature of delivery, post natal physiotherapy can make a world of difference. It needs to be completely personalised, bearing in mind the health conditions, current fitness level and other changes in lifestyle and routine being experienced by the patient during the postnatal phase.
A few quick tips for women in the post natal recovery phase:
- C-sections tax your pelvic floor and abdomen – exercise is the best way to bounce back.
- Bridge and forward bend exercises are the most commonly recommended ones for post-natal exercise.
- For C-section mothers, remember to wait for at least 6 weeks after your surgery to start exercising. Since the c section takes time to heel, it is very important take rest during this period.
- Always remember to start with gentle and low-impact exercises. Do not push yourself to do more than you can, it might cause injury.
- A warm up is a very important part of everyday exercise.
- Along with exercise, plenty of fluid intake helps in keeping the body fit.
- Walking is the safest form of post-natal exercise. It is very light and helps for effective exercising.
- Swimming and cycling are good solutions for gentle and balanced low -risk cardio workout
