I had been suffering from intense back, shoulder and neck pain for the last 10 months. I had trouble rotating and turning my neck, my left shoulder blade would sometimes become immobile and I would wak I had been suffering from intense back, shoulder and neck pain for the last 10 months. I had trouble rotating and turning my neck, my left shoulder blade would sometimes become immobile and I would wake up with intense pain in my upper and middle back. These episodes were sporadic but would last for several weeks each time. I went to several physiotherapists - and underwent weeks of ultrasound therapy and TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation). I also applied heat packs multiple times a day to my back. The relief was always temporary and the pain would come back within a few weeks.

A friend who had gone through a similar issue recommended Dr Prathap. I was a little sceptical at first about going to a chiropractor, but the excellent reviews on Practo convinced me to give it a try.

There are a couple of things which are important to me when dealing with a medical issue/ a doctor:

- How knowledgeable is the doctor?
- Is he/she able to get to the root of the problem?
- Is he/she respectful of my time (I'm a busy professional and hate having to wait)?
- Does the doctor do a good job of explaining the problem and following up with the correct treatment?

Dr Prathap checked all these boxes. He is very well trained and is able to articulate the problem and the solution with ease. He was thorough in his investigation and only then proceeded to work on my back. He was professional and courteous throughout the session and made me feel comfortable. The relief from the pain was instantaneous.

After the session he took me through a couple of simple exercises - exercises that I could do even at work while sitting - to relax and straighten my back (I was also emailed the exercise routine in the form of a pdf). He also set up a follow-up session to take me through a few extra exercises.

The best part - we were able to identify the problem! Temperatures drop in Bangalore significantly at night and for people who sleep on their sides under a ceiling fan - this could spell trouble. The muscles jam up and lock segments of the back bone. Since then I have made specific changes (thicker cover and slower fan speed) to counter this issue.

The exercises have also helped me in maintaining a proper posture. The pain has thankfully not resurfaced.

I want to highlight one other point. Most doctors take the patient's time for granted. And while there can be situations (medical emergencies, surgeries, etc) which are unavoidable, a lot of doctors make flimsy excuses for their lack of punctuality. For our second session Dr Prathap was running late by about ten minutes. He informed me about this delay well in advance via SMS. I have never seen this happen before. His respect for his patient's time is admirable. I wish more doctors made the effort to be punctual.

I would highly recommend Dr Prathap to anyone suffering from back, neck and shoulder pain issues.

I am 23 and working. I try to maitain a healthy lifestyle and do my workouts daily. A few months back in february I injured my back while performing deadlifts. I had to lie down on the floor for 2 hour I am 23 and working. I try to maitain a healthy lifestyle and do my workouts daily. A few months back in february I injured my back while performing deadlifts. I had to lie down on the floor for 2 hours as I couldn’t move a muscle due to the immense pain that occurred throughout my back and after I stayed in bed for 2 days.
I had a brief information about what a chiropractor does and so I was very keen to try it out. And am I glad about making that decision to see “Dr. Prathap”? By far the best intuitive decision I have taken in my life. Following points are what my MRI report says about my back injurie(s):-
• Reduction in vertical height of D11 vertebra with anterior wedging. Old benign partial vertebral collapse.
• Degenerative end plate changes noted at D7 to L1, L2, L3 Vertebral levels.
• Degenerated L2 -L3, L3-L4 and L4-L5 show diffuse disk bulge compressing ventral thecal sac & bilateral traversing exiting nerve roots with partial bilateral lateral recess stenosis.
The points above are copied & pasted from my reports and I don’t understand any of those. All I know is that I was in agony during that time. So, when I called in to book an appointment he was fully booked for the coming days but luckily I got an appointment as someone else cancelled (bless that person). And thank you to the guy who schedules all his appointments, ‘Prem’. In my very first session with him I got a feeling of confidence that I will make it through this injury and that was because he implements his knowledge with a unique set of skills which takes years to master. He has the knowledge of how every single particle and muscle in your spine functions and we all know ‘knowledge is power’. I have had 5 sessions with him since that day and I am back to my 95% fitness and daily exercise routines with absolutly no signs of my injuries at all. There’s definitely no magic here but the amount of hard work he puts in to understand his patience’s and their injury is nearly magical. I had problems along the way while I was recovering but he supported me with every piece of information that helped me speed me recovery. He did his part and gave his 100% towards my injury but I could only recover because I wanted to be fit again and followed the exercises he told me to do as my homework. You have to work as hard as he does to overcome your problems as it’s not magic but a combination of “knowledge & hard work” that leads to ‘WELLNESS’. Apart from all this Dr. Prathap is a wonderful being to know and even if I am 100% fit, I would still go and visit him.
For anyone reading this can contact me and I can talk about my injuries and how well he treated them all day long. If you suffer from these kinds of injuries than take my word there’s no one better I and many other people can suggest.
Thank you & take care guys.

I am a 23 year old guy and came up with neck pain after sleeping one day late last year. At that age, I was extremely worried about this as the pain was pretty bad and not going away despite visits to I am a 23 year old guy and came up with neck pain after sleeping one day late last year. At that age, I was extremely worried about this as the pain was pretty bad and not going away despite visits to physiotherapists and orthopaedic doctors. It is then why I came across Dr. Prathap. I must say, I am extremely glad that I visited him for my neck issue. Not only are his treatments extremely effective, but he actually takes time to understand the issues facing the patient, provides reasoning for why the issues are occurring, and is very approachable. Attending his clinic and following his exercises have greatly helped me and I would highly recommend Dr. Prathap to others. more..

I checked with a ch I had mild neck and shoulder pain and occasional headache for last 3-4 months. I did a bit of googling around the symptoms and found out that it would be best to see a chiropractor. I checked with a chiropractor before seeing Dr Prathap but I wasn't very satisfied with that doctor.

Fortunately, I found out about Dr Prathap on Practo. He listened to my problems patiently and answered every single query that I had. He explained what the problem was and how he was going to treat it, it felt very assuring. In every session, he gave me some exercises to do which were really helpful. I have gone through 80% of the treatment plan and it has worked great for me. I am much more relieved and happy.

Dr Prathap is really friendly and of course a very good chiropractor. I would recommend him to anyone looking to see a chiropractor.
