Activ Kaarya is headed and run by a highly professional and qualified physiotherapist, Dr. Ushma. I personally have had very good experience with the doctor. She diagnosed my problem and explained the problem to me very well and taught me some simple exercises which I did regularly and my problem was solved with in a few days. The clinic is also very well equipped with essential appliances if required during the course of the therapy. I would recommend this clinic to anybody who is eager to get well and stay active.

Dr. Ushma is very knowledgeable in her work. I had been suffering from back ache for more than four years, and had been to multiple physiotherapists for treatment. Going to Activ Kaarya through a reference form a friend was the best thing I did . She understood my problem and helped me a lot. Pressure point massage , various exercises and ultrasound etc really helped me to get better. I recommend Dr.Ushma very highly.

Dr Goradia gets into the details of the issue prior to commencement of therapy. She is also as realistic as empathetic when dealing with patients.. Moreover, came across as a very well read person who keeps the patient - however old or young - engaged with her talk during the course of therapy.

Dr Ushma's treatment was focused, felt scientific and helped alleviate my discomfort.

It was refreshing to receive treatment for my neck pain from Dr. Ushma. Her style of treatment is so comprehensive, covers all aspects of positioning, exercises, muscle tightness, lifestyle changes, and pain relief, thereby I learnt how to well manage my pain. I have not seen any health care professional communicating so well to all her patients in the clinic. Highly recommend.

Recently my wife had dislocated her elbow. After the orthopedic surgeon carried out the reduction procedure, in view of the seriousness of the dislocation and her age, she had to be in the cast for three weeks. After the cast was removed she needed the careful attention and guidance of a physiotherapist to get back her mobility. This is when we consulted Dr. Ushma in her Aktiv Kaarya clinic. Our experience with Dr. Ushma was extremely satisfactory. She is a thorough professional who knows exactly what is to be done and sure of what she is doing. Her clinic is well equipped and clean. She has an excellent temperament, understands her patients’ needs very well and she is passionately committed to her work. She is very friendly and creates a sense of confidence in her patients. The one hour sessions that we had for about three weeks in her clinic were very useful and during every minute of each session she was constantly monitoring my wife’s progress. Thanks to her, my wife has now got back her mobility and is almost back to total normalcy. For anyone who needs to consult a truly professional physiotherapist who is committed to her work, I recommend Dr. Ushma strongly and without any hesitation. Her clinic is the one stop answer to any of your physiotherapy needs.

Physiotherapy suited according to your body rather than other way. First of its kind I have seen.

Finding Dr. Ushma has been crucial in the rehabilitation of my knees. with her highly empathetic demeanor, substantial qualifications, and custom state-of-the-art tools, the patient is exposed to a myriad of ways to treat their issues. I might add that while I'm here for sports medicine I have witnessed her specialized treatment of those with special needs/developmental needs as well. I've seen patients from as little as infancy all the way to elderly being treated. and she also sorted out a family members back pain quickly. Her clinic is also amazing. I highly recommend checking her out.

Dr. Ushma is professional, punctual, and above all very friendly to approach. She explained my concerns (back pain an year ago and frozen shoulder recently) clearly and provided the treatment. She has well maintained, nice and clean clinic. I've had very good results at both occasions. I've recommended her treatment to few of my own relatives.

I have been the beneficiary of Ushma Goradia's expertise having worked side by side with her as an Occupational Therapist. Dr. Goradia is an academic and truly exemplifies the quintessential link between theory and practice. All of her treatments are clearly rooted in current research and she practices thoughtfully with care and compassion. She is also always available to share the knowledge with other members of the team, and I have benefited from her guidance numerous times. I highly recommend her. Ushma, thank you for everything!

I am 70 yr. old lady who underwent bilateral knee replacement surgery in Nov.2013. I did my usual round of physiotherapy recommended by the hospital for 3weeks. But still found that my right knee was still very stiff . It was then that I decided that I should see Dr.Ushma whom I had know earlier. She is very innovative and takes personal interest in studying the problem and finding unique solutions for it. Thanks to her I am now able to walk everyday for 1/2hr. without much strain.
Posted December 15, 2013 by Sandeep Kumar (Bangalore)
Doctor Ushma possess extensive knowledge and understands the problem very well. The therapy which includes the right kind of exercises and treatment is pro-Active which helped me recover from the pain in the knee joint within few days.

Two days back I got a neck sprain while in gym due to which I was experiencing pain while turning my neck. I visited Dr. Ushma's clinic yesterday. In just 2 days Dr. Ushma detected the disorder and fixed it with a relief of almost 50% in just two days. She used traction and pressed at the right spots to make my neck movements much easier. Her clinic has great ambience and most of her equipment is brought from US. She has also practised in the USA for several years. I would be happy to recommend Dr. Ushma to any one who needs quality physiotherapy.

I am honored to be able to write a testimonial for Dr. Goradia. I was her supervisor 15 years ago in New Jersey where she treated children in a school based program. Subsequently, I met Ushma again, this time as a colleague in our doctoral program. Ushma is the single most dedicated professional I have known in physical therapy practice. She is extremely knowledgeable and skilled , and someone that I call on for professional advice, information and inspiration. She is missed in the USA.
Posted November 26, 2013 by Chandrakanth (Bangalore)
Dr. Ushma is very knowledgeable. She brings in a blend of her western training with an Indian touch. The facilities are very clean and the service is professional and prompt. Highly recommended.

I have severe neck pain, due to which, I was unable to use my left hand, After going to so many physiotherapy centers with no results, finally I just got the RIGHT Treatment and care from Dr. Ushma. From the 1st session I could notice the relief. Her treatment is completely different from others. I will surely recommend Activ Kaarya for everybody. Its really a World Class treatment !

My mother had stroke and was bed bound since 4 weeks. Dr. Ushma got her to sit the first day and walking with help the second day of treatment. My mother improved in terms of not only walking, but also her speech, swallowing, and cognition also progressed significantly. Mam is excellent with instructions and communication in all aspects relevant to stroke and guided us very well.
Posted September 27, 2013 by Jaysri (Bangalore)
Ushma is an excellent therapist who has the time and patience to understand the needs of her client. She also does a routine follow up to check if her clients are keeping well. No doubts , she is a true professional.
Posted September 24, 2013 by Bruce Taylor (Bangalore)
Ushma is a very thorough and knowledgeable physio. I have been to many physios in my time for treatment in a bad back, but Ushma ranks at the top for most of them. She has a methodical and holistic approach to treatment and after treatment activities to manage the cause of the problem. She was able to assist in relieving the immediate discomfort and gave excellent detailed post-treatment exercises to ensure recurrence was reduced. Highly recommend.
Posted August 20, 2013 by Darren (Bangalore)
Dr. Ushma is highly qualified and effectively uses her knowledge in the field and adapts it from patient to patient, concentrating more on functionality, which is more important.

Activ Kaarya Physiotherapy is a true gem and very professionally managed. I have done various treatments here and had good success. The studio is very clean and has all modern equipment available. I highly recommend this physiotherapy center.

Ushma's treatment has worked wonders with my mother, who is 84. Six months ago she could barely walk a few steps without cringing with pain. Now she comfortably walks a couple of times around the apartment complex. While the root cause of her pain at her age doesn't have a cure, it is Ushma's Pain Management treatment that has helped her get back to normal daily activities. This was a big relief since we had tried several other treatments recommended by Orthopedic doctors over the years without success.
Posted July 9, 2013 by Usha Bhashyam (Bangalore)
She really makes efforts to understand patient's problems well with lots of patience and makes them very comfortable with treatment. A visit to her clinic is a treat to the ailing body and mind. Thank you!

I am mighty pleased with the treatment received at Activ kaarya. Dr Ushma takes personal care of the problem,makes you aware of the treatment, and has so much of positive vibes in the way she treats you. Blindly go to her for any physiotherapy related issues.

Suffered from lower back pain since 2 months. Visited all the good doctors in Bangalore but the pain still persisted and all reports were Normal. After visiting Active Kaarya the first day it self I was given enough knowledge about the pain that I have and how should I tackle it. The care , explanation , and patience of doctor made me relax, its rare to find such doctors in Bangalore, who listen to patients' problem with patience. The custom exercise programs specific for the patient are too easy and helpful. I highly recommend ACTIVE KAARYA.

Dr. Goradia is an excellent therapist with exceptional clinical skills. I have seen first hand her thoroughness and care when evaluating and treating patients. I have discussed theory and practice with her for the betterment of patients in both pediatric and geriatric settings. I am an occupational therapist and we have collaborated very well together when sharing patients. She always demonstrated confidence and competence for all cases from strokes to joint replacements. I have always been impressed with her care and professionalism. I would choose her for my physical therapy needs and recommend her to all of my friends and family.

I have known Dr. Ushma for over a decade and am very happy that she has opened ActivKaarya Clinic. She has wide experience in treating patients of all age groups. Her approach is holistic, and she believes in keeping patients informed and aware of their conditions and the therapy. Her instructions are easy to follow with appropriate hand-outs. She uses time-honored methods as well as keeps abreast of the latest in the field. The ambiance in her clinic is refreshing, so is her approach to therapy. I would highly recommend visiting Dr. Ushma for all your physiotherapy needs.

Post my second baby, I had severe pain in my back, limbs, and general discomfort that comes with childbirth. I visited Dr.Ushma and my observations are that :
1. Unlike most other clinics who just ask what the problem is, Ushma understands your complete medical history and records it for future reference.
2. Every single aspect of the treatment is explained in minute detail so that the patient is aware of what's happening and what to expect as end results.
3. 100% attention is given during any therapy and she ensures you feel at home.
4. She is not shy to move away from conventional practice and try out variations that suits her patients.
5. Her clinic is truly world class, the investment she has made reflects her passion to make sure her patients get the best. Unlike in most other physio clinics which is nothing but a small room or corner of the hospital, her clinic is a refreshing change and leaves you all positive during the time one spends there.
I have in a span of 4 weeks experienced tremendous pain relief which for me is essential to be able to care for two children. I would highly recommend Dr.Ushma for her professional and very personalized approach to treating pain. Her clinic is by far the best in Bangalore.

I visited Activ Kaarya, two weeks back with my mother who is suffering from severe back pain and knee pain. First thing I noticed was nice ambience and good hygienic environment in the clinic. Dr Ushma took time to understand the complete history and made her feel comfortable before suggesting the PT treatment and also some basic exercises to improve the mobility.
Doctor Ushma was very warm and receptive. She engaged my mother well by not only giving the best PT treatment possible, but also created awareness in terms of how important day to day walking and provided quite a few tips on exercises to increase the movement
We took four sessions and found them to be very helpful. Dr Ushma also gave printed material on basic exercises which are very useful to refer back even after the therapy. Overall we had a very pleasant experience in the clinic and my mother is planning to go back for more sessions soon.

I had taken my mother-in-law to Activ Kaarya for treatment of a chronic back and leg pain, that she was suffering from for several months. Dr. Ushma Goradia spent a lot of time patiently talking to her, making her feel comfortable and trying to understand her complaints before deciding on the treatment. The recommended therapy has provided her relief and made her more mobile. Dr. Goradia continues to follow up closely on her progress. The spacious and bright interior of the clinic along with Dr. Goradia's caring interactions, provides a non-intimidating and friendly environment. Dr. Goradia's experience and knowledge is evident from the way she attends to her patients and I would highly recommend a visit to her clinic for any physiotherapy treatment.

I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Ushma Goradia as my teacher during my post graduation days, back in 2006. Ever since, whenever I needed some sort of guidance, either in academics or regarding a particularly difficult patient, Ushma madam had always helped me (and many others) with her profound knowledge and experience.
Dr. Goradia has always been successful as a clinical therapist, which is not surprising, when you consider her credentials: A combination of excellent academic career, extensive experience in best institutions of India and USA and her zeal to make a difference in the patient’s life. She has been highly acclaimed professionally wherever she has worked. Surely, Active Kaarya would be no different.

Dr. Goradia helped me when I sprained my ankle a couple of years ago during martial arts class- I thought I would be in a brace for weeks, but after only a couple of sessions of mobilization therapy with her, I felt immediate improvement. Her optimism and commitment to her technique inspired me, and I was back to normal right away!
Posted Oct 31, 2012 by Jaya Nair (Bangalore)
I consider myself blessed to have received treatment from Dr. Ushma about 5 to 6 years back for chronic and acute lower back pain, which I had been suffering from for nearly 15 years. At times, the pain would be so severe that I would have to be completely bed-ridden for even up to a week. I had tried all branches of medicine - orthopedic doctor, Ayurveda from a reputed hospital in Kerala, Acupressure treatment from one of the most reputed doctors in Bangalore and also homeopathy. However, these only gave me temporary relief. After a few days, I was again back to the same plight. I was not able to lead a normal life. I would like to sincerely thank Dr. Ushma for the treatment given and the exercises recommended by her. Since then, I have NEVER had a serious bout of back pain and in fact, I am able to lead a normal life and perform my tasks to my full potential. Her optimism, sincerity and patience are truly commendable. Her enthusiasm is infectious and 'SERVICE WITH A SMILE' is what makes her so endearing.

I was training to run long distance, when I was hit by a patellar problem. Dr. Ushma treated me with taping around the knee, and in about 6 weeks I was back to running again!
