Our Aspirations

❖ To promote movement as medicine for the elderly, by providing our services across gyms and community health care centers globally

❖ To provide movement medicine to people who seek better health, wellbeing and/or sporting performance

❖ To create a platform where movement experts from diverse fields collaborate to bridge the gap between research and practical application for all things related to achieving excellence in movement performance

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 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.
