Martvic therapy provides expansive services to patients within Kenya. We aid in the treatment of chronic conditions, address injuries, and offer preventive care to reduce the potential of chronic pain or injuries in otherwise healthy patients. We serve a wide range of patients, offering personalized care for each one based on their needs and long-term goals.

Back Pain

Chronic back pain is very common but can place a significant burden on your quality of life. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may find normal daily activities, such as walking, taking out the trash or even sitting for long periods of time, to be very difficult. Fortunately, most causes of back pain can be treated with physical therapy. 


Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints, which often causes pain and limited range of motion in the affected joints. People who have arthritis often experience a decreased quality of life because of the pain and limitations in their joints. Physical therapy can be an effective treatment for arthritis, helping to reduce pain, improve joint function, and enhance quality of life.

Auto Injury

No matter the severity of your injury, we provide physical therapy that can help you recover from an auto accident injury. Our specialists can assess your injury to determine the root cause of any pain symptoms you’re experiencing and work with you to find a course of action for treating and managing them. 

Balance and Gait Disorders

There are many issues that can lead to balance and gait disorders. Some causes are minor and resolve on their own, such as an ear infection causing vertigo. However, some issues are more prominent and require active treatment (often physical therapy) to resolve. These issues may include:

  • Damage to the musculoskeletal system, such as fractures, tendinitis and sprains.
  • Podiatry issues, such as corns, calluses and anything affecting the ability of the feet to carry weight.
  • Arthritis that damages the joints and can cause balance issues.
  • Vision problems.
  • Inner ear issues.
  • Neurological issues, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease and stroke.
  • Brain disorders.

Your physical therapist will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses the cause of your balance and gait issues, as well as your recovery goals.

Covid-19 recovery

The long-haul COVID-19 cases often present in symptoms such as:

  • Chronic fatigue.
  • Decreased ability to exercise; decreased endurance.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Chest pain.
  • Inability to return to work.
  • Frequent dizzy spells.
  • Balance and gait issues.
  • New joint pains or muscle weaknesses from inactivity or extended periods of time in bed.
  • Long-term symptoms like: difficulty with thinking and concentration (i.e., “brain fog”), depression, muscle pain, headaches, intermittent fever, fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations).

Fortunately, physical therapy has been shown to help rehabilitate people with long-term COVID-19 symptoms. 

Foot and ankle injury

Foot and ankle pain often go hand in hand. Because they both carry the same amount of stress and body weight, and there are many connecting tendons and ligaments between them, when something is wrong with one, it typically affects the other.

For patients experiencing foot and ankle pain, the results of the ongoing symptoms can slow down your daily activity level and, in some cases, your overall quality of life. Chronic pain in the foot or ankle can prevent you from walking or standing for any length of time, it can keep you from your favorite hobbies and activities, and it can be a constant pain that affects your overall mood and consequently your mental health. 

While some causes of foot and ankle pain may be attributed to an underlying condition or injury, sometimes the cartilage in the ankle joint simply wears out, weakens and becomes inflamed. This can be due to repetitive movements, weight gain and improper foot support.
