Our rehabilitation facility is built to provide the best possible treatment to all patients, admitted for long term treatment and outpatient with the required all modalities for treating chronic patients with different disabilities. With the latest tools and methods for exercise, occupational and speech therapy at their disposal, our team of therapists have all the means necessary to bring about development progress.

A good doctor is one who’ll say, ‘I have no idea what’s going on with this patient. Come help me figure it out.’

Physiotherapy is key to boosting strength, balance, coordination and tolerance and finally restoring motility in a disabled patient delivering physical independence to a patient. Our physiotherapists work towards reducing spasticity and increasing the range of motion to ensure improvement of strength, balance, coordination and balance. Alongside this, pulmonary rehabilitation is also performed to reduce fatigue and clear lungs. These are a series of breathing exercises that are slowly amped to increase stamina. This combination is most effective at enabling patients with the ability to perform their daily tasks taking the least possible aid from loved ones and caregivers.
The key function of our occupational therapists is to bring about functional independence. They work towards training patients in daily self-care activities like bathing, dressing, eating and personal hygiene that are key to attaining an increasingly independent life. Our training methods are geared towards making up for sensory and perceptual insufficiency taking into out the personal, social and cultural tastes along with the integration of simple home management skills that reduce fatigue levels. We also involve in overall growth of the patient beyond our facility and make suggestions towards alteration of the living atmosphere at home to make it easier for the patient to achieve independence.
“To be a doctor, then, means much more than to dispense pills or to patch up or repair torn flesh and shattered minds. To be a doctor is to be an intermediary between man and God.”

Our speech specialists develop a complete program to improve clarity of speech, sound production and voice strengthening. The first step of the program includes various exercises in phonation, articulation, fluency, resonance and voice clarity. The next step is the development of language abilities with a fouc on comprehension and expression in oral, written, graphic and sign. The last step of the program focuses on attention, memory, problem solving and executive function. This program includes training in swallowing of solids and liquids to avoid choking hazard.
The most devastating effect of a neurological disorder is the psychology damage that it does to a patient. And this effect is different of every single patient. We have a team of specialists who engage in identifying these specific problem areas and teaching our patients to better cope with the strain of their ailment. Their goal is to reduce psychological stress and help improve cognitive function. They engage in providing behaviourial therapy to decrease dysfunction and improve quality of life.
One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient.”

Aquatic therapy is directed towards increasing the physical abilities of the patient by restoring movement along with strength, balance, coordination with reduced spasms. The role of the aquatic therapist is identify the problem areas and design exercises to cater to every patients individual requirements. Aquatic therapy is specially successful and essential in case of an early onset intervention.
Orthopedic surgeon & Urologist
We have a team of orthopedic surgeons who work closely with our therapists to treat existing deformities and prevent any deformities in the future. Their role is key to preventing regression in a patient’s condition.Patients with spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, dementia, and cerebral ataxia, are prone to bladder related problems. An urologist is involved in these cases to understand the urodynamic and help the patient achieve the ability to manage their own personal hygiene.
The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will educate his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.
– Thomas Edison
Andrologist & Dance and Music therapy
One of the most neglected yet important aspects of recovery is sexual rehabilitation. As an after effect of their neurological disorders, patients may also suffer from sexual disorders that require medical attention as well consultation. We have a team of andrologists dedicated to achieve this.An important aspect of overall development is a good amount of relaxation and increased vocational abilities. Dance and music therapy allows the integration of both of these in one session.
Diet Counseling and Yoga Therapy
Neurological disorders lead to complex functional deficiencies that causes deficiency and secondary complications. Rehabilitation is a long term process that has its foundation built on a healthy diet. In each case, a thorough assessment is conducted in connection with patients’ needs to fulfill rehabilitation routine. A diet pan is then charted to meet these requirements.Yoga has been a go to form of exercise to improve flexibility, muscle strength, balance and over all fitness for decades making it an ideal choice to include in a patients rehabilitative program on a functional and physical front. Yoga also has a positive influence on the mind of the patient reducing the emotional damage that is a direct result of neurological disorders.
“Being a good doctor means being incredibly compulsive. It has nothing to do with flights of intuition or brilliant diagnoses or even saving lives. It’s dealing with a lot of people with chronic diseases that you really can’t change or improve. You can help patients. You can make a difference in their lives, but you do that mostly by drudgery.”
-M.D.-Doctors Talk About Themselves” by John Pekkanen
The greatest impediment in any patient’s progress is the toll that the therapy takes on their mind. Lack of motivation is the main reason for any progress to come to a standstill. To keep our patients going, a number of workshops are integrated into the program.These workshops help them harness all their positive energy and channel them in towards progress using techniques like meditation and mind power techniques.
The workshop includes:
- Guided imagery
- Inspirational stories
- Patient videos
- Goal setting
- Creative visualization
- Group therapy
