I visited this clinic as suggested by the Dr i had been referring to on my nerve compression issue ..10 days interferential therapy session and i started feeling much better..
Went for frozen shoulders and now got cured. Nice environment and infrastructure. Dr very courteous and explains patients nicely, wherever required he does therapy himself. Good value for time and efforts spent.Maintains records. I would highly recommend his institute. Iam saying this after after trying others in vain.
Overall satisfied with the treatment.Pain has reduced to a greater extent. After the treatment sessions I feel so energetic. I'm happy to have chosen this clinic.
Well experienced doctor. I approached this clinic for pain in my back and hip region. The doctor patiently listened to our problem and diagnosed that it was due to the stiffness created. He suggested some exercises and IFT treatment. Right from the beginning, I was able to see the results. The doctor is always approachable , friendly and provides individual attention and care to all his patients. The other instructors in the clinic are also very professional and patient towards helping the clients. I sincerely thank Dr Sivaramakrishnan for continuously motivating and helping me get through the pain and highly recommend this clinic to others.
