Gowri is amazing!! I was in very rough shape after my car accident. Movement in general was very painful. My shoulders were permanently sitting one higher than the other in standing and sitting positions. Luckily this is when I found Active Living Physio. Through various methods and exercises she now has me almost completely back to 100%. I cannot thank her enough.
Gowri is very thorough, knowledgeable and Professional. She gets to the source of the problem. She checks on my homework and knows when I am naughty. Her expertise has helped me tremendously. Thank You Gowri.
I could not walk more than two blocks before my hips started to hurt intensely. On my initial visit Gowri’s good nature made it easy for me to explain my predicament when she immediately became involved in my problem. After only a few visits I am now able to walk long distances. She even helped improve my posture. Thanks Gowri.
Gowri explained everything to me clearly and eased my anxiety and stress level considerably following my injury.
I feel so much better both mentally and physically.
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.
I like the one on one treatment and I don’t feel rushed. Plus I have a great physiotherapist.
