On behalf of my grandfather- I met up with Dr Abhay due to a disk prolapse (Slip Disk). Dr abhay started off by giving me a comfortable space to share my problems especially given the fact that hailing from a small town it was not everyday that a doctor asked a lot of relevant questions ensure the best remedy. Dr abhay suggested me to undergo a regular physiotherapist sessions, that’s when I was introduced to Dr.Shikha. Her sessions were extremely simple to understand. Given the fact that it was done over video it was all the more impressive. I have been gradually recovering my strength and Dr.Abhay’s regular followups ensured the correct steps are being followed throughout the journey to ensure that i avoid surgery. Truly in line with the catchphrase “we are spine” Thanks for everything 😄

I am from Kerala. I suffered a lot because of my chronic backache. The pain radiated to my arms as well as the legs , and caused numbness and weakness. I was in a situation where I can't do my everyday routine.Other doctors suggested me for surgery or else there will be a condition to sit on a wheelchair. At this point one of my friend Rohit Gokhle suggested about we are spine team, and decided to give it a try. Now I think this was the best decision I ever made. The team of we are spine helped me for a fast recovery. Especially Dr. Shika Jain. Dr. did a great job with my first ever health exam. She explained everything to me in a very clear manner. Not only has she taken great care of my health, but also she is lovely to speak with at every appointment. It's rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I am so glad I chose we are spine team and would highly recommend to anyone.

A Life-changing Journey with WeAreSpine I had been struggling with excruciating spasms in my legs and lower abdomen and the pain was making it difficult to carry out my daily activities. I consulted my doctor Dr Abhay Nene of WeAreSpine who asked me to see Dr Priyank Patel, as he was travelling. And, it turned out to be a life-changing experience. Upon consulting Dr. PRIYANK Patel, I was advised to try physiotherapy as a solution to my problem. This led me to the capable hands of Dr. Shikha, who guided me through a series of specific exercises aimed at strengthening the muscles supporting my lower back. The results were astounding. Within just a month of consistent effort and dedication, I noticed a remarkable 90% improvement in my condition. The excruciating pain and spasms that once plagued my daily life were now significantly reduced, allowing me to regain my mobility and enjoy life to the fullest. I cannot emphasize enough how grateful I am to the team at WeAreSpine for their expertise and exceptional care. Dr. Abhay Nene’s diagnosis and Dr. Shikha's tailored physiotherapy exercises were the key to my recovery. If you are facing any spine-related issues or pain, I wholeheartedly recommend WeAreSpine. Their compassionate and skilled approach to spinal health is unmatched. My journey with them has been nothing short of incredible, and I now feel equipped to face life with renewed vigor and a pain-free existence. Thank you, WeAreSpine!

A freak incident caused a pinched nerve that sent radiating pain down my arm, with reduced power caused by a possible damage to the nerve. Being Founder of a Travel & Hospitality startup (SaffronStays), this meant a break from active work and travel, as this needed bed rest for a many weeks on end. What was troubling was that I had a long overdue family trip to France and Italy, in under 2 weeks! What complicated things was the emergency root canal that suddenly emerge exactly 2 days after the freak pinched nerve incident. In all this, renowned and celebrated Dr Abhay Nene and his trusted Physiotherapist Dr Shikha Jain, took over the challenge of putting me on that plane to Paris, without any surgery or steroid epidurals, with minimal pain! We actively and slowly increased the intensity of our neck and trapezius muscle exercises. Dr Shikha understood the root cause - a poor posture, caused excessive laptop/ mobile use - diagnosed as Forward Head Posture (also called Google neck) and literally forced me to first solve this by undertaking active posture correction exercises, including the famous McKenzie method or chin tucks and thoracic extensions. I recall her saying “Mr Deven, if you don’t do this exercise every day, you will have permanent nerve damage”. That shook me out of my inertia! Slowly and steadily, under Dr Abhay’s watchful eye, Dr Shikha increased the intensity of our exercise, by adding weights; to strengthen shoulder, back, neck and spine (also core) and now the affected triceps and biceps muscles, to get me back on the tennis court that I cannot live without. Am still a month or two away from my favourite sport, and eagerly waiting for the process of pain management, to pain Centralization, to paid reduction, muscle strengthening… much beyond the posture correction. What a brilliant journey, that straddled corrective to preventive methods. Kudos to this brilliant team of spine specialists!

Basically I am from Andhra pradesh and i have a spine issue for over the years. Just to consult Dr. Priyank ,i visited his clinic and really he is a great doctor. He is very understanding & listen to our concerns. He takes time with the patient to help them with their health issues.when you have an appointment, Dr. priyank will spend the whole scheduled period with the patient if need be. I am still addressing Dr. priyank but he had made me feel that i am in good hands.Really effecinet, on point, respectful and his staff is great. And Dr. keshav is also an awesome doctor. He suggested me to go for physiotherapy and i must say that Dr. shikha Jain is one of the best physiotherapist I have ever seen in my life.She is so sweet and for me she is like my daughter. She is very thoroughlthorough & caring. If you need a great doctor to help you with your health and wellness do yourself a favor and meet this adorable doctor Shikha. I can't imagine going anyone else now.

I’ve been suffering with lower back pain(bulging disk and sciatica) from past 4 years. Till date I’ve consulted around 10 specialists with little to no relief. But ever since I am under the supervision of We are Spine I can say I feel a whole lot better than I was before. The pain is none to minimal. The treatment is completely medicine-free and addresses the root cause. I will highly recommend this to anyone with any kind of pain. Thank you We are Spine!
