"Dr. Sudarshan Joshi Sir is one of the best chiropractor in Indore. 4 months back I had an injury while playing cricket, I was diagnosed with slipped disc and sciatica. In the last 4 months, I came across multiple physiotherapy centers and orthopedic doctors and I have tried everything but nothing worked for me until I came to Kiran physiotherapy. For the first time, I got a solution to my problem and I feel much better now. I've had 10 sessions till now and got 80 percent relief. I suggest people who are suffering from any type of pain. You can just visit this clinic and can consult. Thanks to Joshi sir and his team for a nice treatment, special thanks to Neha mam :)"
