I had an acute lumbar herniated disc and the pain was unbearable. After being suggested physical therapy, I consulted... Shalaka (@Theracure Physical Therapy) on phone and she gave excellent recommendations on exercises to ease the pain without even meeting. The exercises helped out a bit and the once I went to meet her in person, she did an evaluation and got to the manual therapy asap. She provided information on what she was doing and how it would help with recovery. Within 4 appointments, I could see the results and I felt much better. She emailed all the exercises with detailed descriptions and followed up if I had any hard time understanding, how was the progress. Extremely professional, humble and diligent on the work she did. She is also extremely flexible on scheduling. I will 100% recommend her for physical therapy.read more

I have been an Aerobics instructor and a dancer for the past 10 + years. I have always been very active until I had a... fall a couple months ago. Since it didn’t feel like it was broken, we determined through Shalaka’s expertise that it was just twisted. We decided to do physiotherapy for my recovery. I was very nervous for I was in the middle of one of my dance class sessions.Knowing Shalaka’s experiences in this field, I had 110% trust in her treatment. Shalaka not only helped me recover my ankle but also my back which was hurt in the fall. She focused on actual treatment rather than all the gimmicks like heating pads and exercises, in one hour.She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work and it can be seen in the fast recovery of her patients. She will tell you to take a break only when it’s totally necessary, but otherwise encourages you to go about your normal routine with care and caution regarding your injuries.read more

My son had back problems after getting an injury in martial arts. We approached Shalaka @Theracure for help as his... pain was strong and he wasn't able to walk properly. She took the proper precautions and methods to help his pain and fix it. She was very friendly, informational, and professional and he was able to return to his martial arts which was a big relief for me. She went above and beyond to help him with exercises at home and help alleviate his problems and make him understand what she was doing to fix it and how to get better. I 100% recommend going to her.read more
