Physiotherapy helps woman with dislocated elbow regain mobility

53 year-old Rachna Daswal had a fall that led to a dislocated elbow. She had to walk around with a plaster for weeks, which resulted in limited use of her right arm. Once the plaster was off, her arm still hurt and was stiff. She then consulted Ms.Tanuja Akre, Physiotherapist at Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai. With Physiotherapy, she worked on mobilizing her arm through graded exercise and stretching programme. Her elbow is now fully functional and pain-free. Rachna stated that she was very pleased with her decision to come to Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, and thanked Ms. Akre for helping her get back to her normal life in such a short period of time.
