Dr. Firdos Shaikh has understood my problem of lumbar slip disc very well and given me an appropriate treatment.
I could feel relaxation and comfort in moving my muscles only after a week of starting the exercises. Now I feel positive while doing my daily routines and its still progressing!!
I also feel that these exercises which I have practiced in all the 4 sessions are beneficial for me and will help me in the interim and longer term.
Thank you for being an excellent physio Dr. Firdos!!
I recommend her 10/10. Dr Firdos helped me regain and strengthen my balance and stability in less than 2 months. She not only created and implemented the right treatment plan( multiple previous physiotherapists were unable to do so), but also managed to push me to get better sooner than i expected. She was professional and friendly enough to make me feel at ease too.
I have slipped disc problems since 20 years. My right leg had become very weak because of it. I started aquatic therapy a few months ago which gave me confidence that I can do those exercises on land too. I recently started land exercise sessions. Thanks to Dr Firdos Shaikh's efforts, I can sit on my knees after 20 years. I am also able to walk at least 8 to 10 minutes on the treadmill as well, which I had stopped 7 years ago!
Hello everyone, I am Capt. Shreerang Pethe, an airline pilot with a leading airline in India. At the beginning I had this tingling sensation in my last 3 to 4 fingers of my hand and my toes. My back was getting stiffer as days progressed and had difficulty bending backwards and could hardly turn to see over my right shoulder. Until one day I had shooting, terrible and unbearable pain in my right calf which put me off my daily chores. MRI scan revealed that I have posterior and right paracentral herniation of L5-S1 disc with sequestration and inferior migration (i.e. slip disc). I did see the best available Spine surgeons in Mumbai then, who advised me to do the surgery, not urgently but eventually in the coming days. Instead I ended up starting my physiotherapy to see how it can help me before heading straight to surgery. This is the time Dr. Firdaus Shaikh (now my physiotherapist) came to my rescue. During our first therapy session I took my MRI reports to show it to her, but instead of first glancing at it, she made me do some bending and twisting exercises initially to see my back posture and also to note down my twisting and bending limitations. And at the end of it she wrote down something on a piece of paper which exactly matched with what was mentioned in my MRI. Till this point I was not ready to believe that physiotherapy can help me in my case. Of all the impressive skills of Dr. Firdaus Shaikh this unique approach style *** *** ***** ** ***** ********* ** *** ******* *** indeed good enough for me to handover my slip disc case to her and thereafter all I did till date, was just to follow the instructions she gave me...During my therapy sessions with Dr. Firdaus she made me do planks, bridges, hamstring raises, superman, leg raises to name a few..I was stunned to see my graph rise on a daily basis and at the end of my last session I was amazed to see the sharp improvement in my bending and twisting limitations compared to the ones noted during my first session and ofcourse the tingling sensation and pain was all gone..
The one thing Dr. Firdaus Shaikh clearly told me on my last session is that all these exercises were meant to strengthen the core stability and now onwards if I need to stay in this shape then I got to keep doing these exercises as part of my weekly routine...So here I am, still meticulously following what Dr. Firdaus Shaikh told me a few months back, to maintain my core srability and ofcourse apparantly no requirement to do surgery anymore..******** **** ********* ****** *** ******* **** *** ** **** ** her work place is the unique ability of Dr. Firdaus Shaikh. This is my review for her as a thorough and professional physiotherapist.
My age is 24 years and I was suffering from a serious back injury since 2 years. I visited a couple of physios in Mumbai but none of them worked for my back. I had troubles with sleeping, doing activities like tennis, gym and swimming and it had an adverse effect on my lifestyle. After hearing about the aqua therapy I enrolled myself and was treated under Dr. Firdaus.
Aqua and land sessions really helped me build my core strength and back muscles and I gained stability too.
Now, my lifestyle is almost back to normal and I have started playing tennis and doing yoga.
Would highly recommend the treatment here- great facility and staff!
This is Mayank Champaneri in 2018 I suffered a very serious car accident and that led to several major injuries in my back, the mobility of my back was not good and it used to pain frequently and also my bad sitting posture added more to that.I always wanted to get rid of this pain because this restricted my daily activities. Later on Dr Amit suggested me to join the online exercise sessions arranged by Aquacentric.It was an amazing experience while working out with one of the Doctors(Dr Firdaus) from Aquacentric, the exercise sessions conducted by the Dr Firdaus was interesting and always motivating you, the explanation of exercises was brilliant, also a tele rehab was conducted by Dr Firdaus that helped me out, overall it was a fabulous experience .👍🏻
She is brilliant, Perfect examination, and diagnosis of the root cause of the problem. Its all by experience and dedication. Even the therapies recommended are excellent, though very expensive aqua sessions but they have result n goal oriented approach so your sessions are not wasted.
I find Dr firdaus very patient and comfortable to work with.dhe is very cool conscious of the pain I am in and is very proficient in the way she handles me.Her kindness is a rare quality in a young person.
