1] Marma Clinic

KIMS Ayurveda Marma Clinic is an innovative approach to the management of selected musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and orthopaedic painful conditions. As the term itself indicates, Marma clinic is a wise combination of well-established Manipulative therapy methods working on Vital/Trigger Points (traditionally known as Marma points) complemented by the use of a range of Ayurvedic herbs and herbal oils.

Advantages

  • Manipulative therapy utilizes the scope for accurate diagnosis and appropriate evidence-based management of pain and associated complaints. Studies have proved that the best way of using manipulation is to administer it in combination with other therapeutic modalities with similar principles. In practice it has been established that the combination of Ayurvedic modalities and other selected non-invasive physical therapy methods are effective in the long-term management of specific painful and debilitating musculoskeletal and neuro-muscular conditions including Repetitive Stress Injuries
  • The duration of a standard Marma therapy session may vary from 30 to 60 minutes and the treatment is supervised by the Physician. The procedure is done using specific combinations of Ayurvedic herbal oils that reduce inflammation, promote tissue repair and healing.
  • In commonly seenpainful, chronic degenerative and disabling conditions like those related to the spine, osteoarthritis, diabetic neuropathy, Carpel tunnel syndrome, Hand pain, Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow, Frozen Shoulder, Shoulder Pain due to calcified tendonitis, Recurrent Neck and Back pain due to postural issues, Degenerative changes or Scoliosis, Repetitive sports injuries, Hamstring tightness, Piriformis Syndrome, Hip pain, Pain behind knee joint or pain due to Osteoarthritis of knee joint, Pain due to weak knee cap, Calf pain, Shin splints, Foot pain, Heel pain, Plantar fasciitis, Metatarsal myalgia and Headache due to stress or migraine where quality of life is likely to be compromised, non-invasive methods in alternative systems of medicine are the usual choice. Hence the relevance of KIMS Ayurveda Marma Therapy as an effective system of alternative therapy. Diagnosis that precedes Marma therapy is based on our expertise on functional anatomy and modern diagnostic methods for best results.
  • Our Marma clinical practice is based on systematic assessment and diagnosis of relevant conditions with a well-developed evaluation protocol and clinical reasoning process. Marma therapy focuses on pain management and active rehabilitation.

2] KIMS Ayurveda Transition Care- Integrated Rehabilitation

All rehabilitation programs at KIMS Ayurveda follow a comprehensive and integrated approach by disciplined focus on the three essential components of neuromuscular rehabilitation – Timely interventions, Proper care of the main condition, Patient comfort and safety. Our Transition care rehab programs start immediately after the hospitalised care period for the main condition [ for instance Stroke management for which the first 6 months are crucial being considered the golden period of recovery] Here the patients can experience the best of Modern and Traditional Ayurvedic care.

KIMS Ayurveda Rehabilitation Program could be an exclusive one of its kind because of its cost effectiveness, non-invasive nature and multi -pronged approach. Here we focus on improving the functional stability and improvement of quality of life. We set realistic and achievable goals for the patient. We use certain world-class non-invasive modalities for functional improvement such as Mirror box exercises and Biological cell regulation therapy.
