Our Philosophy – Active & Passive Therapy“We bring modern orthopaedic rehabilitation to India.”
Today’s modern, fast-paced lifestyle very often comes at the price of disharmony between body and mind. Whilst information and mental demands increase, the body is progressively neglected and under-utilised. At the same time and probably as a consequence, many people experience increasing back and neck pain, and other associated joint and muscle ailments. An inactive and untrained body is not able to meet the daily physical requirements of life. Furthermore, inactivity increases the risk of incurring other health problems be it heart and vascular, becoming overweight and or, potentially metabolic disorders etc.
This inactive mindset also exists in therapy. Many therapies are passive. The therapist or the surgeon does something with or to the patient; it is expected that he should fix the problem. Most of these therapies are useful, but they are lacking the – immensely important – active element.
What AktivOrtho Tm wants to introduce to India is the active part of orthopaedic treatment as it is successfully performed and widely used in western countries. Active treatment requires active patient participation whilst at the same time addressing individual patient needs. For example addressing their limitations, the period of time it is after an injury or a surgery and many more aspects.
Of course, this active approach is combined with other effective passive forms of treatment. We provide professional physiotherapy, massage, electrotherapy and other modalities in our centre. Furthermore, we cooperate with surgeons, external physiotherapists and other specialists to provide the most comprehensive form of treatment. We all need to do something for our body actively and indeed pro-actively.
People may have certain limitations, need proper guidance and may feel that a fitness studio is not the right place for them to go. We have a solution for these people. We offer medical training therapy
(MTT) where a physiotherapist trains 1 on 1 with the individual helping to prevent recurrence or occurrence of back, neck and other orthopaedic problems. It is a lot like going to a fitness club only the individual tends to feel more secure working out in a medically supervised environment.
Step by step we help people increase their physical abilities.
Our Philosophy – We careYou are important to us!

It is our goal to help you actively improve your health and well-being through one-on-one treatment programs designed to address your needs all within a medically supervised environment supported by quality service, education and research.
Though AktivOrtho Tm has many advanced technologies to enhance the recovery process, treatment is a step by-step process built on a foundation of trust and collaboration with our team, with you and your family. Our patient-centred model of care encourages active participation from you so that we can provide the very best care and results.
As doctors and therapists, we want to give you the best advice and help you should you have any queries that are related to orthopaedic pain-related problems, whether you want independent advice: what to do? (e.g. surgery or not?, what kind of a treatment do I need?) etc.
We offer treatment programs ranging from comprehensive rehabilitation to prevention to optimizing your performance in sports all with the goal of restoring and enhancing your physical abilities.
Perhaps you suffer from chronic or recurrent neck or back pain or just want to get your
body into better shape – we can help!
Our Philosophy – Body and MindThe mind and body work in unison
They are mutually dependent; one influences the other. For example, when you have a problem with your back and you have additional mental stress, it is very likely that the back pain increases. Alternatively, when pain endures for a long time, it will start to affect your thoughts and emotions.
The need to evaluate and address the psychological and social aspects of any illness in conjunction with the physical factors so as to ensure successful treatment leads us to assess pain management using the “Bio-Psycho-Social” technique.
Many people suffering from chronic back pain find that their thoughts and emotions are also influenced by this constant or recurring pain. You may start to avoid certain activities, not only sports, but also other social activities like going out and seeing friends because of the perceived expectation of further pain or discomfort after an hour of sitting etc. This in turn reduces your function even more. Your mood may also change.
In fact, many people with long term, on-going pain have a tendency to develop a mild or moderate form of depression. The good news is that when your physical needs are addressed properly; this downward cycle can be turned around. As soon as you start to feel that you are getting physically better, you will also begin to feel the benefit mentally. The result being that both body and mind slowly but continuously improve together in an upward cycle. At AktivOrtho Tm, we will work with you to get your body and mind back working in unison.
