Detailed Description

Mr. Deepak visited our clinic Physiofit Guru which is considered the best physiotherapy clinic in Mulund by many of our patients. The patient consulted our experienced physiotherapist Dr.Ajay Yadav and complained of backache after getting up from the bed.

Dr. Ajay Yadav proceeded by performing several special tests for the back muscles. The doctor diagnosed the condition as mechanical low back pain.

For treatment, Dr.Ajay suggested back rehabilitation; the rehabilitation included:

  • Functional cell stimulation
  • Strengthening exercises for the back
  • Loop band exercises
  • Full loop band exercises
  • Stepping exercises used to strengthen both the leg muscles

After a few weeks of back rehabilitation, Mr. Deepak felt his condition was getting better. He was now more comfortable in performing routine activities as the pain had minimized to a great extent.

Post Treatment Guidelines

Even after back rehabilitation treatment, Dr.Ajay advised the patient to continue doing the exercises 4 times a day.
