About Us

Meaning of Prana: Prana in Sanskrit means the ``Life force`` translated as ``Breath`` or Vitality.

Prana Physiotherapy's Philosophy - Liberating Instead of Limiting

  • We, at Prana Physiotherapy, care for the whole person and not just the injury. Our focus is on optimizing movement function, rather than just telling you what is wrong with you and what you should stop doing!
  • We are movement specialists and we empower people to achieve their goals and enable people to live an active life style.
  • Injury to optimal performance is a continuum. We help people along this continuum in every step by offering individualized pain management strategies, graded strength training and rehabilitation services.
  • Pain is a sensation (just like heat, cold, touch and prick) and every person has a different experience of pain.
  • We look at managing pain from a bio-psycho-social perspective, where every individual is unique in the way they cope with their pain experience. Thus our pain management and injury rehabilitation strategies are tailored towards individual needs and goals.
