I came to Perfect Balance after 10 sessions at another physio clinic. The sessions there haven’t helped at all and I got really frustrated with my wrist pain not going away. When I booked my first appointment with Perfect Balance, I was directly referred to one of their specialists for handling wrist injuries. My physio therapist Hiten was fantastic! He quickly understood my problems and showed me exercises that have since significantly improved my issues. I can highly recommend Perfect Balance if you’re looking for an excellent physio team on Reem Island.

I saw Hiten over the course of about 3 months on and off for a shoulder injury and would highly recommend him - my shoulder feels as good as new now. He gave me a plan to work on and helped me to integrate sports-specific gym exercises into my training and my shoulder now feels back to normal. Not only that but he and the staff at Perfect Balance are all very friendly and knowledgeable too.

Hiten Maisuria combines his physiotherapy skills with a strong understanding of human nature and psychology. He is able to adapt exercises to fit in with lifestyle and how you are feeling at the time. He is also very supportive and encouraging. I am seeing him for a problem with my shoulder and have gone from not being able to lift a cup of tea to lifting a heavy suitcase to a luggage rack above my head on a moving train - balance and strength together! He’s also added in a few bonus exercises to keep my overall strength up while my normal exercise program was disrupted by injury.

I worked with Hiten in Perfect Balance for a whole year and it was transformational. I arrived in agony from spondylosis but his expertise and encouragement pushed me forward to build my leg and back muscles; this meant I felt better, ate less, lost weight and now 3 years later still don't suffer from any pain. It was totally life-changing for me and gave me a strong base to work from. So, if you are someone who suffers from the same issues as me, back or neck in my case, but indeed any problem that needs physiotherapy, I totally recommend Hiten as the best physiotherapist I have attended!
