I went to Dr. Deepika for Slipped disc problem. She understood the problem correctly and suggested a path as how to treatment will happen. She gave me IFT and Ultrasonic treatment along with regular exercises. Within 10 days of span, I started feeling 90% better than the day I had visited her. Now, she has suggested exercises to me and I see my pain getting reduced every day as I am doing the same at home. She was very friendly and very punctual about the time of appointments. I would suggest (if you are going through back pain) to visit her for any kind of physiotherapy.
I had severe pain starting from right hip joint and radiating all the way down the right leg. Orthopedic doctor suggested to go for physiotherapy.

After Shoulder Dislocation, surgeon advised for physiotherapy so from Practro I got a contact of Dr. Deepika . In first appointment she explained about procedure and shown confidence that I will be alright within a few days. It has been 7 days and I have started driving car and there is no pain for doing any daily activity. I have never waited for the Doctor. She always available as soon as I enter the clinic and 0 wait time which is commendable. Overall I am satisfied with the treatement I have taken and would recommend others who need physiotherapy to Dr. Deepika.
