He was a Very approachable person. All my doubts were clarified by the doctor. The treatment given was satisfying.
I consulted the doctor for neck and shoulder pain which had been prevailing for a while. The root cause of the pain and the reasons behind it was analysed before proceeding with the physiotherapy. The therapy was also definitely worth the time and money as I was able to see improvement within a few days. Feedback was also taken after every session to adapt the next session to address the problem being faced. Overall it was a good experience that provided with a stable and good improvement.
I consulted him for giddiness and to improve stamina & energy levels. On evaluation he diagnosed my posture is the root cause of the issue and suggested for posture correction therapy. From day 1 onwards am feeling better and now got relieved from stiff neck and giddiness. Within a short span of time I feel myself more energetic with improved stamina. I sincerely thank Dr Sivaramakrishnan for making me more confident to do exercises without fear of giddiness.
I felt so happy and comfortable and relaxed by attending this treatment. I could easily move my leg after this treatment. My pain is also reduced now . Thanks to the doctor.
