Dr. Firdos Shaikh has understood my problem of lumbar slip disc very well and given me an appropriate treatment.
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..
