Pain Management

Prognosia Offers Pain Management in Gurgaon

Joint pain can be discomfort, pain or inflammation arising from any part of a joint — including cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons or muscles. Most commonly, however, joint pain refers to arthritis or arthralgia, which is inflammation or pain from within the joint itself. Joint pain can be mild, causing soreness only after certain activities, or it can be severe, making even limited movement, particularly bearing weight, extremely painful.

Osteo Arthritis


Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time.

Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine.

Osteoarthritis symptoms can usually be managed, although the damage to joints can’t be reversed. Staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and some treatments might slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function. Management

  • Physical therapy. A physical therapist can show you exercises to strengthen the muscles around your joint, increase your flexibility and reduce pain. Regular gentle exercise that you do on your own, such as swimming or walking, can be equally effective.
  • Occupational therapy. An occupational therapist can help you discover ways to do everyday tasks without putting extra stress on your already painful joint. For instance, a toothbrush with a large grip could make brushing your teeth easier if you have osteoarthritis in your hands. A bench in your shower could help relieve the pain of standing if you have knee osteoarthritis.

Back Pain


Lower back pain is a common cause due to the sedentary life style and a stressed working environment for both youngsters and old age people. Low back pain can also be the result of certain diseases, such as cancer of the spinal cord, a ruptured or herniated disc, sciatica, arthritis, kidney infections, or infections of the spine.


See the Physiotherapist or Spine Specialist at Prognosia at DLF Phase GURGAON if you are experiencing pain that shoots down into your leg — especially all the way to the bottom of your leg. This could indicate something more serious than a strained muscle, such as a damaged disk in your back or a compression at the nerve root which is causing Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected arm or leg.

At Prognosia we apply heat or cold therapy depending on the nature of back pain along with Class IV laser therapy with ultrasonic and wireless electrical stimulation. Also, our Chiropractic and manual therapist will use some muscle-release techniques, spinal manipulation or realign the spine structures i.e. the back muscles and soft tissues to reduce the intensity of the pain.

As the pain improves the physical therapist may introduce some flexibility and strengthening exercises for the back and abdominal muscles. Our senior therapist will teach few techniques of posture alignment therapy for improving posture so that such nature of pain doesn’t relapse in future.

Knee Pain


Pain in or around the knee that may indicate a condition affecting the knee joint itself or the soft tissue around the knee. Knee pain can have causes that aren’t due to underlying disease. Examples include heavy physical activity, lack of use, injuries such as sprains or strains, sitting in a constrained area or sitting on knees for a prolonged period.

Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare. If the pain and swelling doesn’t subside then consult our knee physiotherapist or orthopaedic for further diagnosis and treatment. Soft tissue injuries can be easily managed by using ultrasonic or LASER therapy with certain electrotherapy machines and specialised manual therapy techniques. Once the pain is reduced then our therapist will teach you certain strengthening exercises which you have to continue at home as advised.

Hip Pain


Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause.

Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.

Hip pain can sometimes be caused by diseases and conditions in other areas of your body, such as your lower back. This type of pain is called referred pain.

PROGNOSIA believes in a holistic approach to get high results in a very short time period.

Shoulder Pain


Your shoulder is made up of three bones: your upper arm bone (humerus), your shoulder blade (scapula), and your collarbone (clavicle). It may lead to increasing problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structures in your shoulder, resulting in pain. You may feel pain only when you move your shoulder or all of the time. The pain may be temporary or it may continue and require medical diagnosis and treatment.

Treatment generally involves rest, altering your activities, and physical therapy to help you improve shoulder strength and flexibility. Common sense solutions such as avoiding overexertion or overdoing activities in which you normally do not participate can help to prevent shoulder pain.

Neck Pain


Neck pain is caused due to cervical spondylolysis or muscle imbalance or Spasm. This condition involves changes in the bones, disc or joints that are connected to the neck. The major cervical pain reasons are due to the muscle spasm, wear and tear of the cartilages and bones, and thus are often found in computer workers and ageing people.

When neck pain is mild or moderate, it is usually possible to treat the symptoms by applying few electrical modalities and manual therapy. Some cases of neck pain will clear up quickly over the course of a day while others may require a few weeks to resolve fully. Once the pain is reduced then few strengthening exercises are taught by our physiotherapist which a patient has to continue at home for a certain period.

PROGNOSIA team is fully equipped with world-class technology and manual approaches.

Plantar Fasciitis


Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.

Ignoring plantar fasciitis can result in chronic heel pain that hinders your regular activities. You’re likely to change your walk to try to avoid plantar fasciitis pain, which might lead to foot, knee, hip or back problems.


Physical Therapy: You can work with a physical therapist to strengthen the muscles around the joint, stabilize the joint, and improve your range of motion.

The therapist @ PROGNOSIA uses the latest techniques and modalities such as High-Power class 4 LASER Therapy, Wireless electrotherapy, CST and manipulation, Chiropractic and Osteopathy.
