After 2 months following a radical prostatectomy I was incontinent to the point where it affected my active lifestyle. I sought out physiotherapy to help me with pelvic floor strengthening and bladder control. My urologist said that 6-12 months was the normal range to get past the incontinence. However after several sessions with Gowri and a regular exercise program over a 2 month period I am under control 99% of the time. Gowri handled the personal nature of the therapy with dignity and professionalism.

Gowri was the perfect match to help with my recent concussion from boxing. Her clinic was in the privacy of her own home which made me feel very comfortable. She helped me understand what was going on with my injury. She is patient and thorough. She customized my recovery program based on my injury/needs. She gave me confidence that I would be back to my normal self.
