My mother has been a patient of Avi's for 13years. This has been a journey of rehab and fitness, and has adapted as needed to problems with her back, rehab following a stroke and more recently assisting with flexibility and fitness with her advancing age. There is no doubt that she has benefitted physically and emotionally from this treatment, and her relationship with Avi, during some challenging times. Avi's professionalism, expertise, care and flexibility of treatment options have been impressive and appreciated.
I have been seeing Avi for the last 9 months for an intensive back rehabilitation program after an ALIF procedure that I had done in February 2020. My recovery has been incredible, the exercises have been spot on which has helped me regain strength balance and a better understanding of how my body works. Avi is professional and punctual. He is very encouraging and disciplined in ensuring that the rehabilitation is done correctly. He is also patient and empathetic.
I was diagnosed with FSHD (Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy) in 2017 I also have fibromyalgia and am hypermobile. I started my rehab programme with Avinesh Pursad at the Neuromuscular Department of SSISA (Sports Science Institute of South Africa) in early 2019. At that stage I was struggling with most physical movements and I was in immense pain, especially around my shoulders and back. After more than two years of hard work, research and dedication that Avinesh Pursad has put in during this time, I am pleased to say that my physical condition has improved immensely and I am now able to move more freely and am in less pain, as well as lead a more productive life. Avinesh Pursad's knowledge, experience and his determination to improve my situation through his encouragement of me, his pushing me to keep up the good work and his belief in me has been a major contribution to my improvements both physically and mentally. I would highly recommend Avinesh Pursad as a great Biokineticist.
