I have been suffering from a chronic pain for the past three years. I have visited 3 orthopedicians before and all of them suggested excercises which didn't help.
I had leg pain for past three months due to small accident, I tried pain relief tablets and other pain relief ointment, but I can't see any improvements, then finally visited and consulted with Dr.Ramkumar, He explained about what causes this pain and how I can come out of this in very friendly manner with professionalism, that's makes difference here, I started to see good improvements in my pain within two days, I'll make sure to follow all of his advises, Thanks a lot Dr.Ramkumar
