Helps in maintaining fitness in individuals affected by muscular dystrophy. IMDRC Manav Mandir offers state of the art therapy with specialised equipment. The physiotherapy hall can accommodate 50 patients at one time. This spacious south-facing room is well lit and overlooks the beautiful valley. Soothing music adds to the atmosphere.
Hydrotherapy has been recommended by doctors as an effective treatment. It is believed to improve and maintain mobility, strength, and flexibility of muscles, and is a good form of aerobic exercise.

We use specialised equipment for exercises in water under the guidance of our trained staff.
DNA & Carrier testing
We facilitate DNA and carrier testing. The samples are collected at our center and sent to CCNB Hyderabad. Genetic Counselling is also being offered on a regular basis by professional doctors.
Psychological Counselling is an important part of the rehabilitation process. Both Ms. Sanjana Goyal (President, IAMD) & Mr. Vipul (Secretary, IAMD) are affected by Muscular Dystrophy and have been leading fulfilling lives. Both of them hold regular Psychological counselling sessions where they share their experiences with affected individuals and provide counselling.
General Medical Checkup
