My son is having occupational therapy with Dr Ushma who is a Paediatric Certified Specialist (PCS) through the American Physical Therapy Association. She is treating him for coordination disorders and uses a variety of equipment and activities that are all of the high standard we would expect in Australia. Most of all, my son is responding really well to this treatment and enjoys his time with Dr Ushma. He looks forward to his appointments, participates fully, and even comes home and independently completes his home exercise tasks. Dr Ushma is a true professional. Her facilities are world class in every regard. We are so lucky to have her here in Bangalore and I wholeheartedly recommend her to everyone I know.

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!

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.

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.

We have been very impressed by Dr Ushma`s clinic setup and more importantly the world class expertise and approach to therapy that she gives to her sessions with her patients. We are indeed fortunate to have her practicing in Bangalore. Her personalized and empathic therapy sessions are unique to Activ Kaarya and are unmatched by any other setup in 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.

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.

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.

Ushma was able to identify the challenges of my autistic son and give us valuable feedback for conducting Occupational Therapy and Sensory Integration. I would highly recommend that parents of autistic kids to consult with her.

I am very impressed with the professional set up at Active Kaarya. I went in with a frozen shoulder and a lot of pain. The therapy and exercises helped me to regain movement and relieve the pain. Thank you Dr. Goradia.

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.

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 visited Activ Kaarya during the 1st week of Feb with my four year old son who has lot of sensory issues and speech delay.I had directly gone there after travelling by train from Mysore, the moment I stepped into the clinic, Dr. Ushma made me feel completely at home and the ambience of the clinic has a lot of positivity. I stayed in Bangalore for 2 days and took 4 sessions with Dr.Ushma during which she showed me lot of techniques to work with my child at home.I am completely satisfied with her services and hope that with her vast knowledge and experience, she will help me in putting my son on the road to recovery.I am looking forward to visit her again next month.

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.

Physilife clinic

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!
