VARDĀN is a very good institute. I am taking treatment regularly at VARDĀN and I am benefitting, especially when I had my second shoulder surgery. I took a lot of treatment for my shoulder surgery and it helped me a lot because I didn’t recover on time but then thanks to VARDĀN , when I got treatment from their physiotherapist, I got better and was fit to play the IPL.

There are a lot of good physios in VARDĀN who were looking after me. One of them is Charles and then there is Shashikant.

They have a very good set up for Physical Therapy, for Gym, for Pilates. I come here regularly for Pilates and for my treatment with the physios. Their FMT (Functional Manual Therapy) is different from the others because I have taken treatment from many physios – from Indian physios, Australians, South African and English physios, etc, but the kind of treatment that I am getting here, I haven’t got anywhere else in the world. I am lucky that I live in Delhi and that VARDĀN is also in Delhi.

I have very pleasant experience with VARDĀN and my Therapist (Aamir) while getting treated at VARDĀN for my knee pain. The treatment has exceeded my expectations and has helped me tremendously. Earlier I was on different medication but now I am off all medicines. Thanks so much VARDĀN. Keep up the good work!

Hi Garima,
I am shocked and dismayed at the decision to close down the Mumbai Centre.
When I started off in September, of last year, I had challenges walking pain free, climbing up and down stairs. I had an arthritic right knee, due to an arthroscopic procedure performed 13 years ago, and as a consequence the good knee had also turned bad due to overloading that I would do. From that place to today…..I run on the treadmill at a speed of 14, I have started doing Bollywood dancing and I climb up and down stairs….for the most part, like a teenager. Only, that I am 57 years old!!!

All this is due completely to your therapy. I had tried physiotherapy for a long time, but what your therapy achieved borders on the Miraculous!

You people are doing such good work. Don’t abandon us now. What you so works. You have the backing of the TOI Institution, you could leverage it far more effectively than what you are doing currently to communicate your therapy to the citizens of Mumbai, and you will have people flocking in droves. The Bombay Times carries a weekly feature on health, and not once have you written about it, after last year. Give your selves time, and you will pick up….I know this in my bones….simply because you are not some get well quick scam, but people with a Mission to heal….a mission which is working, slowly, I’ll grant, but it’s working. Please reconsider your decision.

At the end of our lives when we look back on what we did in our lifetime…..the decision to close down the Mumbai Centre will be one you will regret. Don’t do it please. Don’t shut down a good thing.

Warm regards,

Mukesh Bansal

I have been coming here since Aug 1;13. Dr Heath Matthew had referred me here in Vardan. The physiotherapist here are very good and they analysed bio-mechanics and walking patters in a very deep manner. The FMT has also helped me most of the times. They have also taught me many exercises ( Which are the point and target the right muscles ). I am really impressed the way they teach me various exercises. These are very simple but very very effective in helping me to walk.
The pain in both of my right as well as left knee has decreased by almost 30%. When I came here, I was able to walk for just 300mts a day but currently I can walk till 800 mts a day.

Thanks to Dr Jevene and Dr Jatin

I came to Vardan in 2014. I had fell on road 10 years ago due to which I started getting knee pain. I used to get pain all the time.I was advised knee operation to get rid of this pain. Few years after my accident my left leg got fractured.I used to limp and walk.I had major difficulty in walking.But all the credit goes to Vardan they with the help of FMT therapy fixed my knee problem completely.That was like a blessing to me.I had no pain in my knee anymore.Now im doing good since last few months.But I come to Vardan once in a while to keep my progress in touch.I would suggest people of my age to take these treatment from Vardan as at our age it is difficult to recover.We can only depend on medication but with FMT you can feel confident even at this age.

“I was suffering from knee problem from last 12 years and had been consulted with lot of Doctors and all of them had asked me to go for Knee Replacement. I took my first session on 22nd May., 2013 and today was my third session and I can actually feel the difference from therapy. I firmly believe that this place will not let me go for the knee replacement and this treatment will actually create a positive impact in my day-to-day life.”

I had problem in both my knees for the last 18 years. Left knee was badly damaged and as a result of that part of the bone damaged was lying inside. It was detected as a osteophytes inside the knee during an MRI was taken. The intensity of pain can well be imagined. The broken part of that bone was extracted during an operation but the pain still persisted. I learnt about Vardan through an advertisement and enrolled myself. After a few sessions of FMT by Shruti the pain started reducing dramatically. I was doing few exercises recommended to do at home, rigorously without fail. It all helped me in avoiding the operation for knee replacement for which I almost decided at the time of coming to Vardan. The credit of relief to my acute pain goes to the dedicate efforts of Shruti the PT in particular and Vardan in general.

Specific benefits I had at Vardan

  1. Never even had to take any pill for pain relief.
  2. Was unable to bend on knees to begin with but now able to squad
  3. Relief from locking of joints during sleep resulting into sleep disorders
  4. Better metabolism due to the exercise schedules which have become part of my daily routines
  5. Feel no need of wearing knee caps which I was using for the last 8-9 years

Only in five sessions with Anshul, I am so glad that I am in a position to do my daily activities without much pain which once seemed to be impossible.

I had right ankle and bilateral knee pain, and was limited in my use of stairs. I consulted doctors in 3 different continents who suggested various medicines, surgeries etc. but I felt no benefit. My doctor in India referred me to Vardan. I went through their website and decided to give FMT a chance.

I felt the difference right from the first session. My initial assessment showed various mechanical restrictions along both knees, extending down to the foot and ankle complex; the cuboid of the right ankle was of primary importance. My joint mechanics have been restored to at least 90% mobility through FMT, which has significantly improved my ability to perform everyday functional activities such as stairs and exercises.

As my legs improved I noticed some limitations in my back and neck, which were making it difficult to travel for long periods of time. FMT has given me significant gains in those areas as well.
I come for my sessions from Kanpur, but my treatment has been so fruitful that I am more than happy doing so!

Bhavna Rajgariah

My name is Bhavna Rajgarhia, I am 36 years old. I work with my father. I heard about Vardan through my dad. He heard about it from a friend. I have had a problem with my knee and calves. It has persisted for over 10 years.

The last three-four months have been very bad, I have not been able to move. If I moved or even walked around a little bit, my knees would start hurting a lot. The last three-four months, I haven’t been able to walk around for even five minutes. The pain was very acute. I went to a lot of general physicians, physiotherapists, orthopedics and all and the scariest part was that nobody was able to diagnose my problem. Everyone would keep saying there isn’t a problem and they would just send me back home. So I was very worried and very scared – if you have such acute pain and the doctor is not being able to diagnose it, it gets very scary. Last two-three months I have been teary-eyed all the time and then of course I heard about this place. My dad came here first. He came for about two or three sessions and he was really happy and he suggested I come and I came and I must say that after the first session itself – the therapist was Ekta and she is really sweet and really good I must say – I felt better. In the first session she treated my tailbone. She said that my tailbone had moved a little from its right position and it was pressing on a nerve which was aggravating my knee pain. The primary reason for the knee pain was my muscular pain. So she fixed that tailbone for me and the first session itself I was feeling much better.

The second session, because of some confusion I think, I got a session with Jevene, and she treated my muscles around my calves and thighs and all that and after the second session I was 99% better.

And today which is my last session – my third session – I am feeling absolutely fine. There is no pain. In the last 10 days, I have done everything that could make me deteriorate – I wore heels even though they told me not to, and I went out. They told me to exercise and I didn’t exercise properly. And they asked me not to do one more thing which I did again. But still I had no pain. Had I done any of these things prior to coming to Vardan, I would have had acute pain.

This place I would say is like a Godsend for me. I think I should start crying right now. I am feeling fine in just three sessions I have taken an appointment after a month because they want to check me and to make sure that I am doing the exercises and following up on whatever they have asked me to do. It’s been great and I want to say a big thank you to Jevene and a big thank you to Ekta and a big thank you to Vardan.

I work with my father. I heard about Vardan through my dad. He heard about it from a friend. I have had a problem with my knee and calves. It has persisted for over 10 years. See for my experience, I don’t have a medical understanding of FMT, but from my experience I would say that it is basically a very advanced form of physiotherapy combined with a certain amount of manipulation, because I think the first time what she did with me was manipulation – she was just rubbing the tailbone to get it into the right position. And thereafter, for the other two sessions, she was pressing me to relieve pain in different places. So I think it is a combination of manipulation and very advanced physiotherapy.

Another thing they did for me, which no doctor has done until now was that they corrected my walk. They said; “your walk is your main problem. You are not walking from your hip you are putting all the pressure on your knee, which is why you are getting so much pain in your knees”. So actually they nailed the source, they treated the source and actually if I do the exercises properly, which I plan to, then I think that I should be fine.

That’s why I am done in three sessions – I mean I have had a problem for over 10 years.

Before coming here, I was almost bedridden. Like I didn’t have to rest but I was not walking, I couldn’t walk even 10 steps. I was going to work etc, but I was not moving at all. But now I am leading an absolutely normal life. I am going to work, I am going to work out, I am going out at night – so it has made a whole lot of difference. I would say from having a lot of pain, today I am pain free. I still have to work on my muscles and strengthen them before I can do anything that I want to – because I would love to do a workout class, which she has told me not to do right now – but I am now from being in a lot of pain to being pain free actually. It’s really helped me, this place. I would recommend it to everybody. Get in here and get yourself fixed.

My main problem was knee pain – for 3 years – though I also had a backache. Soon it hampered my work. I tried everything from the brief relief of ayurvedic massages and homeopathic pain remedies to crazy naturopathy diets. I got really scared when a doctor wanted to insert a probe in my knee when an MRI was inconclusive!

So, when I read about non-invasive FMT at Vardan, I decided to try even though I didn’t believe it would work. I wasn’t impressed by Mamta’s simple analysis for my pain either – a misalignment in my ankle that affected the shin and muscles. But since I wanted to go to Ladakh (on painkillers if need be!) I gave it a shot.

I had 10 sessions in all, and from the second one, the improvement was dramatic. Other physical therapies rely on heat to relax muscles and relieve pain but FMT gets to the root of the problem to resolve it. My nagging pain is gone. In fact, I told Mamta that I thought of her more than my wife as I trekked in Ladakh pain-free!
