Injury or chronic pain can affect your everyday actions. Being in this constant pain is no way to live this beautiful life. Physiotherapy, which has been in practice since as early as 400 BC, might be the answer to your problems. It is a part of the medical profession that is concerned with the movement of the human body and any kind of physical impairment.

For those of you who think that people with disabilities cannot treat other’s pain, there are hundreds of physiotherapists across our country who would confidently contest your belief. We bring to you, a collection of 3 such physiotherapists and their life stories. And if you want to read some inspirational pieces, glance at newspapers where you would find tons of “Despite being blind, she became a physiotherapist!” stories because disability is not a barrier in realizing one’s dream.

Labhendra Sadashiv

Labhendra might be blind by his eyes but not by his mind

Faith can transform even the impossible into the possible and Labhendra makes this transition on a daily basis. One of his patients had severe internal shoulder injury. There was no movement possible and even the slightest touch would cause searing pain. The doctors had prescribed surgery, but the patient wanted a different way out and Labhendra had found it. The patient had faith in him, and he had faith in his skills, magic was bound to happen. Today, that patient is completely healed without having to go for surgery. Labhendra’s glorious 12 years of work experience has seen numerous such patients who have come to him with faith and had their faith intact when they left with improved health. He was called the “8th wonder” by one of his teachers and we couldn’t agree more.

Sanjay Pore

The advocate of continuous learning Sanjay is at the helm of bettering his patient’s life

A certificate of appreciation from a group of mentally challenged individuals is undoubtedly Pore’s one of the most cherished patient feedback. He has been working for the past 5–6 years now. For someone who is dependent on others for travelling, examining, etc. 2000 was the year when it was Sanjay Pore’s turn to start helping others and for others to be dependent on him. He has been practicing as a physiotherapist and massage therapist for the past 20 years. These years of good work and numerous satisfied patients started with uncertainty and challenges. The patients were not very trusting initially of a visually impaired person, but with skills like Pore’s the hesitation didn’t last long.
