My shoulder pain had been there for months and I’m just three sessions it was fixed. Highly recommended.
Extremely helpful. She explained the situation very concisely and accurately. Then she personally made sure to get the soles moulded.
Dr. Shatakshi's experience is of excellent quality, her work is commendable. Treatment method is classy and friendly.
I had taken treatment abroad earlier, for my swollen painful ankle, and was managing it with an exercise routine. Problem was that even a slight departure, and, the pain and swelling would reoccur. I had reconciled myself to living with it. Dr Shatakshi assured a permanent and lasting cure. This has been achieved, and I am extremely satisfied. I was also explained the problem, the process adopted, and the steps involved throughout. I was also advised specially custom made insoles which have made walking much easier. Dr Shatakshi is an amiable and pleasant person who made me look forward to every session. I strongly recommend her based on my wonderful experience.
