Ms. Shriya, 50 years, started to get really bad knee pain and low back ache since long time back. She avoided the condition until it was unbearable. She is a housewife but also does embroidery work to support her family. Since, she didn’t have a proper working environment set up for doing embroidery and it definitely started taking its toll. Her relative advised her to visit Maudha CHC for treatment. After initial assessment by the Orthopaedic Doctor, she was referred to Physiotherapist for consultation. Physiotherapist asked her a series of questions to find out more about the pain she was experiencing, if it was causing any limitations in movement and what impact it was having on her life. She then ran through a series of exercises demonstrated by the Physiotherapist during the consultation. It helped her a lot to grasp the exercises.
“I started to see improvements really quickly after the appointment. Within two days I could move my body again and not long after that the pain was dramatically reduced through continuing the exercises daily. I found the whole experience really quick and efficient. I can’t believe how well it has worked. My pain has reduced, and I feel much happier about the future. The video consultation was like a breath of fresh air. There was light at the end of the tunnel for the first time in months” said Ms. Shriya.
