Stroke Rehabilitation


Online sessions helped Meenu recover from Stroke

I started working with my 9zest therapist, Deepak, online via Skype since May 2016. Working with Deepak has been nothing short of a blessing for me. I came to know of these online therapy sessions a few months after my hemorrhagic stroke. After the initial assessment, Deepak very accurately gauged my progress post stroke, and we started off on a journey together from there. Deepak came up with a plan of exercises for me which has steadily helped me get stronger and eliminate my deficits. He is always encouraging, patient and optimistic which has helped me make a good recovery. I am able to do many day to day activities like using a knife while cooking, holding heavy objects with my affected left arm, buttoning, stitching or walking more smoothly. In short in am on my way to living life fully, thanks to Deepak.

Knee and shoulder pain management

Ms. Dwivedi’s shoulder and knee pain almost vanished in 2 sessions of Physical therapy

I had been suffering from Shoulder and Knee pain for quite some time and I did not think it could get better at my age. My first session with 9zest made a huge difference to my condition. In just one session, I could feel the relief from pain and after the next few, the stiffness was gone and I had a full range of movement. My Therapist at 9zest worked with me and evolved my exercise routine and that has given me these fantastic results. Thanks to you 9zest, I have resumed my gardening again!

How Damon improved his fitness levels

I just wanted to take a quick moment to say how great it has been having an online personal trainer. I had some bad back pain and was a bit out of shape despite biking to work once or twice a week (16 mile round trip) and walking back and forth the other days to the metro (2 miles per day) plus going to a chiropractor and a massage therapist once a month. Driving long distances or long flights were a bit of a small torture. I've been using 4DX personal fitness. My coach (we do sessions at home through Skype) has been awesome. One of the flaws in the way we tend to focus our workouts in the US is that men tend to focus too much on the "sexy" parts (chest, shoulders, biceps). With Lesme we focused more on core exercises that exercise critical foundation parts of the body. Despite regularly biking, I was really sore after doing squats the first time. Not the quarter squats we see everyone doing at the gym with big weights. Small weights, lighter dumbbells (10-15 pounds) but proper form....all the way down, touch your butt to the floor, all the way up, higher repetitions. We also did deadlifts for the back (light weights) push-ups (better than bench pressing because it works your whole body) and lunges. Within a month of working out once a week with Lesme in addition to my normal biking and walking, my back pain is gone. I drove to Michigan last month with no back pain issues, all with light weight workouts. Oh, and I lost some weight too. The other awesome thing about an online personal trainer, is that having an appointment and someone waiting for me makes it much less likely for me to skip my workout. I can do it at home which means I don't have to find someone to watch the kids and I don't have to drive back and forth from the gym, change, etc.
