What people are saying about us?

"I can't speak highly enough of working with Dr. Chaudhary. I was dealing with POTS, hypermobility issues, pelvic floor issues, neck instability, rib pain, low back pain, & SI joint issues. Many physical therapists are scared to work with POTS patients but add on top of that my pregnancy... I felt rejected by the medical community but not with Dr. Chaudhary.

After only 8 sessions, she managed to re-engage my pelvic floor, anterior core, diaphragmatic breathing, back muscles, & lateral systems. She made my pregnancy better. I was scared I'd have to suffer through pain until the end.

I've recommended her to all my clients. My movement based clients experience things like MS, EDS, seizures, neurological conditions, brain tumors, fibromyalgia, SI joint & back issues, & a whole host of other issues. I don't take my medical recommendations lightly with my clients.

Dr. Chaudhary is a very intelligent practitioner who looks at the mind-body as a whole. I'm proud to have her in my circle of medical support (and, I picky on who I let in my circle)."

"I found out about Quintessence 2 years ago when I was pregnant. I decided to set up an appointment to get an assessment of my pelvic floor health in preparation for the delivery. From the get go, I found Swapnali to be very meticulous and diligent in her efforts. She reached out to me before my first visit to give an overview of what she will do in the assessment.
I started my therapy in full force after my delivery. I was diagnosed with diastasis recti, and contrary to popular belief, Swapnali was so assured that with proper physical therapy this can be fixed. And it did happen for me!
During the course of the treatment, I found Swapnali to be a very patient and empathetic listener. She's very good at her job, it was almost magical to me, but of course scientific to her, when she would diagnose some pain to be due to a very specific muscle not doing its work. There were hundreds of instances where she would very quickly figure out the root cause of some muscle not engaging the way it should leading it to pain in a different location.
Looking back I feel my sessions with Swapnali in my postpartum period did a lot of good for me, both physically as well as mentally. While I would highly recommend her to all new mothers for their pelvic floor health, Swapnali diagnosed and helped me with my years old neck and shoulder pain as well.
Wish you a lot of success in your career Swapnali!"

"Was experiencing problems with my lower back. The pain would keep me from my normal active lifestyle. After trying different things that would help a little, I figured surgery would be my only option. I found out about Quintessence through an NKT forum and wanted to give it a try. I set up an appointment with Swapnali Chaudhary. She was very thoughtful in her process and is actively helping me get back to normal with release and activation exercises. She gives me simple but extremely effective instructions to follow at home through a user friendly app and I believe it's really helping. So glad I gave this a try."

"I'm very appreciative to be able to work with Swapnali on addressing the various physical issues I've had for years. I have tried acupuncture, chiro, and massage in the past, but none of them made a long lasting impact. I was able to feel the change in how I move after seeing only three times of Swapnali, which is amazing!"

"Why all the reviews are 5 Stars?

I had no idea before I went there 2 months ago with Neck pain but now that I am pain-free, I can attest to all the well-deserving 5 stars. Dr. Swapnali has a holistic approach to relieving pain using Neuro-Kinetic physiotherapy technique. Never heard of that before going to her.

I suffered neck pain for 2 months before going to her and tried heat, icepacks, Advil, Tylenol, routine neck exercises etc. with no relief. I truly/painfully understood why it's called "pain in the neck" 😊. But it was stunning the way Dr. Swapnali figured out which muscles and neck segments are causing the pain and worked her magic to bring relief. Home exercises she prescribed are not the routine stuff you see on Youtube, but are very specific and helped in getting the relief faster. She checked other mobility patterns which are causing knee and low back pain and relieved that also. She is simply amazing 😊.

Her bedside manner is commendable and definitely one of her great assets.

Thank you !!!"

"Quintessence PT is an amazing place to go for holistic body analysis, treatment plans and healing. I suffered an injury from competitive rowing and was in pain for several weeks prior to seeing Swapnali. Within 2 weeks of frequent Quintessence PT treatment and home exercises, my intense pain was reduced and mobility had returned. I continued PT for several more weeks to fully recover and Swapnali maintained her holistic approach the entire time - she attended to my neck, shoulder, ribs and feet to aid the recovery of a hip injury. I highly recommend Swapnali's approach and amazing application of her PT skills."

"I refer this center for anyone who wants to have to an holistic approach with hands on therapy. Recently I took my 78yr old mother-in-law for therapy for her feet pain and burning and difficulty walking in the morning from bed. Ms. Swapnali worked with her with patiently by using lot of hand therapy techniques and monitored her progress. We are happy that she is able to walk with no pain after a few sessions. My mother -in-law improved her balance and confidence and able to walk freely after few therapy sessions with Ms. Swapnali Chaudhary.
Ms. Swapnali suggested a few strengthing exercises for back and leg muscles, which helped my mother-in-law for over all pain relief.
Ms. Swapnali asks insightful questions and a very good listener.
I would highly recommend Qunitessence Physical Therapy to anyone in need of physical therapy."

"We found Quintessence Physical therapy on the internet search and reading Swapnali's excellent reviews we booked a session immediately as I was in lot of pain and this pain is caused while playing cricket my lower back was hurt and I was unable to walk/stand/sit properly for more than 3 minutes, I never addressed Physical therapy before this but my team mates suggested to find one. I luckily found this and the session was remarkable after one session I was able to find the difference and the knowledge and treatment Swapnali provides is best which she cares very small details of the issue and finds the root cause of the issue and provides treatment and care accordingly. She iseasy to reachout through phone/text if we had any doubts and also the exercise and videos for those she provide are very helpful to continue exercises at home. I was able to recover within two sessions and she found the root cause of the issue and treated accordingly. I was happy to get the results and happy I found this place. Definitely recommend this place."

"I can not speak highly enough of my experience at Quintessence. I started attending PT sessions because of rotator cuff issues (from swimming and weights) and because of hip pain (long distance running). Over the course of four months, Swapnali not only addressed those local issues, but also started to deal with the root causes (core and rotational strength). Swapnali is extremely diligent in tracking week to week results, allowing fast course corrections if things are not improving. She demonstrates an uncommon level of scientific knowledge as well as care and concern for her patients, and she really views PT as a two way interaction. My wife recommended Swapnali to me, and I would refer anyone who needs PT to this unique and wonderful practitioner!"

"Dr. Chaudhary has helped me regain my joy and smile!!! I’m so very, very grateful! Her physical intake and therapy treatment was very thorough and effective. She addressed the various physical issues from which I was suffering, e.g., painful walking, sitting and standing; multiple falls, fractures, limited movement, loss of sleep, and poor quality of life because of physical trauma, chronic pain, poor balance, and loss of strength. After seeing multiple other physical therapists and my suffering with chronic pain, limited movement, and balance issues due to a catastrophic car accident followed by multiple falls and fractures, I am now pain-free and have regained freedom of movement and greatly improved balance. Thanks to Dr. Chaudhary, I can now get back to doing many things that I had given up. She also showed me how to continue to maintain pain-free freedom of movement and to continue to strengthen my body, so I can continue my improved quality of life. I’m so very glad that I was referred to Dr. Chaudhary by my primary doctor. The results of her physical therapy have changed my life for the better."

"Dr. Swapnali is very friendly. she was able to diagnose the cause of upper back pain and able to treat it with correct exercises. I feel relieve on my pain after her 3 sessions only. she is very nice PT. She is even checking my overall body muscle strength and helping me to improve that too. I would highly recommend her."

"I highly recommend Quintessence physical therapy. I saw Swapnali Choudhary for postpartum physical therapy after c-section. She's amazing! Now I can walk without pain and can activate my pelvic floor!! She gives her patients lots of caring attention and provides very clear directions for exercises to be done at home. Her approach to physical therapy is very innovative. She considers the interactions between muscles across the whole body rather than just the area of complaint. Although I went in for pelvic floor, she addressed back pain, neck pain, core weakness, breathing issues, and issues with my calves!!!! So glad I found her!!"

"I had been suffering from severe upper back pain. This prevented me to carry my newborn child for extended periods of time. Pain meds only provided temporary relief. Swapnali Chaudhary at Quintessence Physical Therapy had been amazing in her detailed analysis of the problem. Her dedication to finding long term solutions is what makes this unique. The detailed exercises has helped me engage and strengthen the right muscle groups doing the day to day activities and prevented me from overusing my upper back / shoulder muscles. I came to understand that an accident which happened 10 years ago was worsening the pain as well. Her techniques address the root of the pain and I am on my path to recovery.

I truly appreciate her help with my problem and would highly recommend her practice."

"I wholeheartedly recommend Quintessence Physical Therapy. I had chronic hip pain for three to four years which prevented me from sleeping well and I my hip hurt while sitting. I could not sit comfortably for long periods of time. The first therapist I went to provided me with a good deal of relief at first, but after six weeks or so there was no further improvement, even after four to five months of therapy. So I quit. I then found a highly recommended therapist whose approach also gave me a little more relief at first, but again there was no further improvement even after around four months of therapy. By contrast, after only two weeks of therapy with Ms. Chaudhary, my symptoms have nearly disappeared. I sleep better and I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. Moreover, the hip discomfort and pain I feel while sitting are nearly gone. The difference is in her approach. She is whole-listic, meaning that she examines the muscles and fascia throughout the body to identify which ones need attention. By contrast, the previous therapists focused only in the hip area and, in doing so, did not pick up on conditions in other parts of my body that were contributing to the pain. And what a difference that has made! Not only has my hip pain nearly disappeared after only two weeks of therapy, I’ve noticed other improvements too. My gait is more fluid, both hips feel stronger and my lower back is more relaxed. In short, I’m very glad to be in Ms. Chaudhary’s care."

"I love the whole body approach to treatment that really gets to the root of the problem! With Swapnali, it's not just about fixing the problematic spot - it's about addressing overall alignment and movement patterns to prevent recurrence. I got significant relief within just a few days of starting PT here."

"My daughter found Quintessence Physical Therapy on the internet search and after reading Swapnali’s excellent reviews booked a consult for me. I’ve had pelvic floor issues for the past year but, never physically addressed them until my daughter took it upon herself to research it while I was visiting her over Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation last month.
From the initial consultation Swapnali put me immediately at ease with her soft spoken, calm voice asking about my concerns, symptoms, lifestyle and goals. I followed up with 3 appointments before returning to New York.
She made a plan on my first appointment, did not rush thru my visits, evaluated my discomfort
issues and taught me exercises to specifically target, support and strengthen my pelvic floor area and after each visit I used an app to download my exercises to practice at home.
During my appointments she taught me deep breathing exercises to help relax my body in order to have more effective results, massaged the weakness n tightness in my pelvic floor area.
I highly recommend Swapnali to anyone who has pelvic floor issues, she is a highly skilled,
knowledgeable and extremely patient physical therapist, a gentle, kind, reassuring and gifted healer who deeply cares about her patients and helping them attain positive results, as I have done."

"Quintessence Physical Therapy is a lifesaver! Before I met with Swapnali at Quintessence Physical Therapy I had given up hope of finding relief from my IT pain. I had been to orthopedists, physical therapists, and had cortisone shots, but nothing helped. I am normally very active and my inability to do my usual workouts due to IT band pain was very frustrating. I was also having pelvic pain that was often triggered by stress. Swapnali looked at my issues holistically and was able to figure out what muscle weaknesses and imbalances were causing my pain. Within a couple of visits I was feeling so much better! I am now easing back into all my favorite activities and I’m pain-free. Thank goodness for Swapnali! I cannot recommend her highly enough.

As an aside, I heard about her from a friend who had experienced chronic bladder and pelvic pain for over 30 years. Thanks to Swapnali’s help, she’s also pain-free for the first time in decades!"

"My mother came in to Dr. Swapnali for physical therapy and she has been excellent in her care. She initially came in for back and neck pain. Dr. Swapnali was able to get her in within the week she called to schedule. She has had quite a few sessions with her now and she is very pleased with the results. Dr. Swapnali gave her numerous exercises to do at home to improve her pain as well which she has been doing everyday. Couldn’t recommend more!!!"

"So glad to have found Quintessence and the highly skilled Swapnali (owner/lead PT). I’ve been having severe lower back pain since the birth of my first child 5 years ago and was diagnosed with diastasis recti after having my second child a year ago. My lower back pain symptoms and core strength have immensely improved since I’ve started seeing Swapnali. She has such a high level of experience in dealing with these types of issues. She is very professional and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her. I’m a happy and grateful customer."

"I started having neck and rhomboid pain issues on and off throughout the year and neglected it. Decided to get it fixed once and for all so that I could resume my gym workouts and QPT was recommended by my PCP and it did not disappoint. Swapnali is extremely knowledgeable and detected many of the muscle issues through various exercises. The accompanying Strivehub app provides details on at home exercises and has improved my overall core, pecks , lats, etc. You will notice visible improvements and get confidence in your movements after few sessions.
Highly recommend Quintessence Physical Therapy to friends , family and anyone in need of PT"

"She is very dedicated and concerned theripist. Initial visit i was skeptical as earlier theropies increased my symptoms. But she listened to all my concerns and worked on individual muscles on different areas. Her techniques to listen to the muscles was amazing. She understands which one to be released and strengthened. I highly recommend this therapist."

"Fantastic practice that provides depth of care that is not common place. I had a baby a year ago and was suffering from lower back and pelvic floor issues. After the first treatment, I was immediately feeling better. I think she is a miracle worker. I have not felt this good in a long time. This place is 1on1 and not your traditional PT shop that has 10 techs working on people In a large room. Your not a number here. She takes the time to evaluate you at each session and make prescriptive plan to treat you. I wish I would have found her sooner. Highly recommended!!!"

"I couldn't be happier with the results of my PT! After only 4 visits with Swapnali Chaudhary, the quality of my life has vastly improved. My physical movements are more fluid, I no longer wake up stiff as a board.
Her approach to my issues has been right on point, however her approach is gentle and not threatening.
I never feel rushed. She makes sure I understand what she is doing and why. I recommend her wholeheartedly."

"I met with Dr Chaudary as I had severe low back/hip and upper back pain at about 5 months post partum.It affected my mobility and I could barely walk. Upon arrival she did a comprehensive full body evaluation. ( I have only received localized treatments from previous therapists.)I was surprised to find out the muscle weakness in other areas were the reasons for my pain. She taught me exercises to breathe better which in turn helped relax my body. With her guidance, I was able to to see marked improvement in my pelvic floor pain and other areas. Dr Chaudary is extremely thorough, patient and is invested in your health. I highly recommend her services to anyone (especially women in their prenatal or post partum phase)."

She helped me with all my pain and all the exercises she gave me to do at home made a huge difference. I would recommend Swapnali to all the mothers have postpartum muscle issues. I wish I found her sooner. I feel much better after seeing her for 2 months"

"I had been struggling with neck, shoulder, back and knee pain for quite a while now and had been to several physical therapists, chiropractors etc. And while all of them helped to some extent, the one that has made the most difference is Swapnili @ Quintessence. My doctor when prescribing physical therapy described her as amazing - I was skeptical. But, having gone to her for a few sessions, I can see why she is different and indeed amazing. She gives you one on one attention for the whole one hour you are there. She doesn’t just confine herself to your areas of pain but approaches your problems from a whole body perspective. She analyses functional movement patterns, and works on addressing weaknesses, tightness, wrong patterns etc. It would be easy for her to apply textbook solutions but she is truly interested in figuring out how your body works and what in particular is causing you pain. I have experienced significant pain relief and I hope that by following the customized plan of exercises she has set out for me, I will grow stronger - thus requiring less medical intervention in future."

"What an awesome results. I was not expecting such a great service and outcome. I had started having knees pains several years back. It had limited me to the point where I could barely walk to my mailbox or barely stand for 5 minutes. I thought it was just my age and I would have to have surgery to get any better. But family friend suggest to check with physical therapist so I talked to Swapnali at quintessence about about my ankle pains. She throughly explained what was going on and suggested some exercise to start. I felt little better. She also proposed a plan of physical therapy for long term knee pain relief. Which I thought sounded right for me soI decided to try it instead of surgery. Scheduling appt was very easy. They are very flexible in appointment time. We were able to get appointment after 5pm on weekdays and also on Saturday. Sessions were very helpful. They generally last from 45 mins to an hour. After sessions, I received a virtual training exercise videos to follow. Which helped reinforce the exercise that therapists showed during the sessions. The best part is that I am able to go on morning walk pain free. This journey has been great. Hope this help others as well."

"I highly recommend Swapnali Chaudhary at Quintessence Physical Therapy. I was referred to Swapnali by my PCP for concerns of lower back and right hip discomfort with no prior trauma or injury. Additionally, I maintain an active lifestyle, both low and high intensity activities, and I felt on the verge of injury at any moment. I decided to seek treatment at this stage to avoid injury, which would likely require more intensive treatment over a longer period of time. Swapnali asked me a lot of questions regarding my lifestyle and my symptoms. She examined me and got right to work on the areas of concern. She sent me home with a set of exercises with very specific instructions designed to target the problem areas. After my second session, I felt an incredible improvement in my condition which allowed me to continue my activities with confidence that I would not injure myself. I immediately referred my father to Swapnali and he is now receiving therapy as well and loving it! One of my favorite things about the therapy I receive at Quintessence is that each session is very educational and informative. I learn about why we are targeting certain areas, how one area is connected to another, and how to be mindful of the way that I move my body in my everyday life outside of therapy so as to not undo progress. I originally came with concerns about how I felt when I was working out, but as a bonus I now feel better when I sit, stand, walk and even sleep! I got more than I bargained for at Quintessence. Highly recommend."

"Dr. Chaudhary is amazing! I was referred by my doctor to several Physical Therapy doctors and all of the 6 referrals only had appointments for 3 months out. I did some research and found Quintessence Physical Therapy. Dr. Chaudhary return my call the same day and I had an appointment that same week. Dr. Chaudhary really cares about what is happening with your body and addresses the painful areas with such a delicate manner. She creates great easy workouts to do at home that helps in the healing process. She is a great listener and communicator, therefore she takes her time to make sure your healing process is adequate and balance for your body. She is more than WONDERFUL!!!"

"I was suffering from back, hands and shoulder pain for almost three years, I have neglected and the pains got worse. Initially I visited other Physical Therapists but nothing worked for me. I got reference from one of my friends about Dr. Swapnali and glad I got the appointment immediately. I felt huge difference like second birth after my first visit. I was neglecting certain symptoms to the point where I could get back pain just by sitting at a spot for more than an hour. She works with the muscle groups, explains which ones need to be worked on and gives out an individualized plan of exercises. She has magic in her hands. I highly recommend Dr Swapnali and Quintessence Physical Therapy."

Her holistic approach, 1 on 1 appointments and genuine care about the patient makes it really easy to achieve the goal rapidly.

"I started going to Quintessence Physical Therapy for treatment of my Lower back pain by Physical Therapist Ms. Swapnali Chaudhary. Initially my pain was very severe it ran down from my lower back to the ankle. For couple of treatments the pain has decreased tremendously. I am amazed. Ms. Swapnali is a very dedicated and knowledgeable Therapist. She works with her amazing fingers the area where the pain is from and individualizes special exercises to suit the need for recovery . I am feeling very much better and most satisfied with my progress. I would certainly recommend Quintessence Physical Therapy to members of my family and friends."

"My pain started in my lower back at first and it was debilitating. I could barely sit still in any position without feeling immense pain. I waited a few weeks because I thought it would heal by itself but that was a mistake - it only got worse and then caused immense neck/shoulder pain. My neck was stiff and I couldn't move my head. This prevented me from working, exercising, hanging out with friends, doing pretty much any activity without feeling immense pain. I wish I had gone to physical therapy before - Mrs. Swapnali has saved me so much headache, pain, and time through her unique holistic approach, her 1:1 time commitment, and the targeted exercises she provides. She was able to identify body imbalances that formed the root cause of this issue (and even others!) and helped me retrain my brain to correct for them. In my case, it was my core muscles that were weak which caused my back muscles to overcompensate for them and fail, and my neck muscles to overcompensate for my back and fail, and so forth. She helped me retrain my brain to use my core muscles first which has helped a lot. If you are in this situation or are worried about being in it, I would highly recommend physical therapy and Mrs. Swapnali in particular. No clinic will give you such specific treatment (plus she is extremely nice + funny). Good luck in your physical therapy journey!!"

"I had constant numbing on my left leg for almost 5 years, though pain and weakness in my leg is no bad but having that weakness constantly was bothering me. I have tried famous Texas chain physical therapy, however I felt like they never got to the root of the problem . I wanted to try a better alternative than cookie cutting based therapy chain, I came across Quintessence PT through friend of mine and told me about her 1 on 1 sessions. I went ahead and booked appointment for 1 on 1 PT, I had a completely positive experience throughout the sessions . My therapist Swapnali had full attention to understand my problem (unlike previous one was multiplexing with other patients) , she got to the root of the problem in 2 sessions and she gave self exercising therapy options . To my surprise I started observing improvement from 2nd session onwards. I highly recommend them for any 1 on 1 physical therapy."

"I had recently gotten sick and experienced muscle weakness, but I thought it had resolved mostly after a couple months. I first noticed my back hurting after working out with weights one day. I couldn't turn my back to the left without lots of pain, and I noticed after a few weeks non-weight bearing, careful working out would sometimes only make it worse.
I couldn't lift weights like I used to, which made me nervous to do any workouts which subsequently effected my sleep and mental health.
Dr. Swapnali Chaudhary worked closely with me and helped educate me on how the muscles worked together, some muscle weakness causes imbalances with other muscles trying to compensate for the weakness by overworking, and how we need to incorporate myofascial release and targeted workouts to activate and strengthen these muscles again.
Each session she massages muscle groups that are overworking and assesses strength and improvements of weaker muscles, and then assigns needs-based, individualized workouts.
She's also helping me with achilles tendonitis, and I really like her mindful, conservative approach to ensuring it heals fully.

I have experienced noticeable improvement since I've seen Dr. Chaudhary.
I really appreciate her ability to listen, care, and understand things from a holistic perspective.
I also love how she is available via texting if you have any questions and provides thoughtful and helpful responses in a timely manner. It's definitely exceptional customer care and attention which is so great for the healing process.
It's great to know a competent physical therapist in Austin, I highly recommend Dr. Chaudhary!"

"Dr Swapnali Chaudhari is so passionate about her profession and so dedicated to her patients. I am so glad I found her. She was super knowledgeable, professional and explained everything clearly.
She is a great advocate and educator for women’s health. I am excited to be on the path to healing! I saw huge improvements in my health and outlook in just a few short weeks. Dr Swapnali is a wizard.. she has magic in her hands! She has a thoughtful plan ready, and does an incredible job making me feel confident in my ability to heal my body with the work I put in. She is kind, empathetic, and has an incredible ability to make her clients feel at ease in a situation that, at least for me, can often be anxiety-triggering. I would recommend her to anyone interested in having the healthiest pelvic floor possible!"

"I have visited Ms. Chaudhary to treat my injured ankle and arthritic knee for past two months. She has come across as a true professional who is knowledgeable about treatment. She really took time and explained me how to do my exercise properly. Through her treatment it made a major difference in my daily activities that I could not do without feeling pain.
Based on my experience, I would recommend her to anyone who need physical therapy."

"I highly recommend Swapnali Chaudhary at Quintessense Physical Therapy At the suggestion of my primary care doctor, I started seeing Swapnali Chaudhary in June. She has been treating me for an overused shoulder muscle and stiff neck. The condition was extremely painful. I was concerned about driving safely because of the poor range of motion in my neck. She took considerable time getting to know me and learn about my current issue. We discussed my activity level, my concerns about regaining mobility and my past history with physical therapy. Our conversation was positive and relaxed. She answered all my questions carefully and thoroughly. She quickly established a care plan and focused on relieving my pain. In subsequent visits, she has focused on providing me with an exercise plan to strengthen muscles that have not been as active in my upper body as they should be. She has always explained the purpose of the exercise, the muscles I am working and the correct way to do the exercise for the greatest affect. (I love that she frequently reminds me, “Don’t shrug and keep your elbow straight!”) The results have been exceptional. I have come away feeling that my upper body health is improving more and more each day. Please note that I am an 80 year old woman with many miles behind me but more that you may believe in front of me thanks to Swapnali Chaudhary."

"I came for PT about 2 weeks ago for my Vertigo and some associated issues that produced some dizziness. Ms. Swapnali very professionally and understandably recommended a treatment regime that started helping me in a significant way. I am very satisfied with the progress I made and I continue with the therapy sessions. I highly recommend Quintessence PT for those who need Physical Therapy! Upali Peter Weerasooriya, Ph.D"

"I’ve been seeing Dr. Swapnali for a few months now. I initially came for pelvic floor therapy and after she examined me, she noticed I have a muscle imbalance on my left side, which could be causing some of my pain. Over the past few months, I’ve seen a decrease in my back pain and my pelvic floor muscles have relaxed a ton. The deep breathing exercises have been very helpful. The prescribed exercises and manual therapy has also been helping. I’ve been extremely impressed with how knowledgeable she is, how she listens and doesn’t rush and how dedicated she is to trying to help me. She is the best therapist I’ve had by far."

"I had received a vaccine shot and started with a general soreness in my arm. I assumed this was expected and ignored it. But when it developed into severe pain around my shoulder, upper arm and forearm, I knew this was something more severe. I was diagnosed with a strained trapezius muscle that and visited Dr. Swapnali for physical therapy. I was feeling better within a couple of sessions. Dr.Swapnali is very knowledgeable and strives to explains the muscle groups impacted and how the exercises help. Regular email/text reminders and the videos of the exercises are provided and it all helps to keep me on track towards a full recovery."

"I have been a chronic sufferer of neck osteoarthritis that led to debilitating migraines most weeks. Due to COVID I was avoiding doctor visits and the only solution that the doctors offered was migraine medication. I did not want short term relief so decided to reach out to Swapnali as I heard good reviews from a friend who had taken care at Quintessence. Right from the first session, Swapnali asked me all the right questions to figure out the muscle groups that needed attention. She offered solutions/ exercises to strengthen the core and used an app to immediately upload the exercises so I could practice them at home. She combines PT exercises with myofascial release for muscle groups that really helped in my case. My migraines disappeared after just 2 sessions and I am still working towards improving my core strength. I had reached out to Swapnali for just my neck issues and migraines, but she also helped with other sore spots and muscle groups of shoulder and arm to make sure that these body parts work in alignment. Swapnali definitely offers personalized plans and follows up diligently. I would highly recommend Quintessence PT to everyone."

"I first came to Dr. Swapnali not really knowing what to expect or even the science behind Pelvic Floor Therapy. But wanting a more holistic approach to my problem, I decided to give it a try. Dr. Swapnali was very patient as I asked questions and she asked very insightful questions in order to get down to the root of my issue. She is an excellent teacher of how the body works and why muscles weren’t working as they should. After 4-5 sessions, I see an improvement in control and the way my muscles are working together. The exercises she gives are very beneficial and customized to my own muscle weaknesses. I’ve been amazed at how quickly the therapy works and highly recommend to ANY WOMAN and really at any age. I also have the skills and knowledge to explain how beneficial pelvic floor therapy is to friends and family. She is also a very compassionate and empathetic doctor with wonderful bedside manner for such a sensitive issue. If you are questioning or thinking about it, just go to the consultation and within an hour, you will feel like you are in knowledgeable hands!"

"I am very happy with the quality of care received at Quintessence. Dr. Swapnali not only treats but also educates patients about wellness and careplan to manage independently later on. Every appointment she patiently answered the questions without rushing. Within 4 weeks I saw great progress with my backpain and after that she provided information on how to avoid backpain and take care of it in future."

"I suffered with relentless pelvic/urinary pain from the time I was 13 until my I was treated by Swapnali when I was 48. I carried the burden of being misdiagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) all my life. I had surgery, bladder instillations, took endless rounds of unnecessary antibiotics that destroyed my digestive tract and caused YEARS of yeast infections- all to try to relieve my pain, and all to no avail. Everything just made me feel worse. As a "last resort" my urologist sent me for Pelvic floor PT when I was 48 and I had the great good fortune to be treated by Swapnali. In about 6 months of twice weekly treatments and daily practice of a breathing exercise Swaps taught me--all my pain went away!!!!! It turned out that I never had IC or anything else wrong with me. I just had chronically tight pelvic floor muscles, particularly the muscle that holds the urethra in place and was pinching it my whole life. Swaps' expert therapy helped release all the tight spots and I learned to perform ongoing PT on myself as needed. After a lifetime of painful sex, I am finally able to have sex pain free. I told Swaps I would nominate her for the Nobel Prize if I could. That's how much quality of life her work gave me back. In my lifelong search for pain relief, I had experience with Pelvic floor PT with other therapists. But none could compare with Swapnali's work. If you have any type of pelvic pain, run don't walk to see her!!!!"

"I am glad I chose to go here and start my treatments with Dr Swapnali Choudhary at Quintessence Physical Therapy. Right after the initial consultation I realized that this could work for my chronic pain. I was neglecting certain symptoms to the point where I could get back pain just by sitting at a spot for more than an hour. After the first treatment with Dr Swapnali, I felt a huge difference and felt much balanced with my right and left side. She works with the muscle groups, explains which ones need to be worked on and gives out an individualized plan of exercises. I have tried out chiropractor before but I found this treatment working much quicker and beneficial. I highly recommend Dr Swapnali and Quintessence Physical Therapy."

Shweta P.

"I have been suffering from lower back pain for almost a decade now and have tried many chiropractors and other therapeutics and I have to say my experience with Dr. Swapnali has been the best so far. She is very knowledgeable, has awesome bedside manner and makes one feel very comfortable. I have been feeling much better after getting physical therapy sessions with her and more aware of how I need to engage my core muscles while exercising in order to avoid injuries. The best part is that her sessions didn’t feel rushed like others and she listened to my concerns in a very caring way to provide quality treatment. I would highly recommend getting physical therapy Dr. Swapnali if you have been suffering from chronic pain."

So if you need a Physical Therapy do contact Quintessence Physical Therapy."

"One fine day, all of sudden something happened and I couldn’t take a step, couldn’t walk. I consulted Orthopedic, done X-rays and everything was showing normal. I was seeing other PT but had very little improvement. Later I was diagnosed of Patellar tracking disorder, in which knee cap goes off the alignment and I can’t walk.
I consulted Quintessence for physiotherapy and with the suggested exercises by Dr. Swapnali Chaudhari I improved a lot. Within my first week itself I was 80% better. Next week I was 95% better and very soon I am 100% back to my normal self!
I highly recommend Quintessence for their services. They are very well experienced and expert at the services they offer.
Dr. Swapnali is highly skilled and expert physiotherapist I have met!"

"Swapnali has been excellent! I couldn’t stand, sit, sleep (and a lot more!) without feeling pain throughout my back and hips. Swapnali’s application of NKT has been incredibly helpful, insightful, and effective. I love her dedication to patient care, esp her writing extremely detailed notes of how exercises are properly done. She’s extremely encouraging and thoughtful when sharing feedback of progress and improvements. I also enjoy our talks on life as she applies treatment—always pleasant conversations!"

"I've had pelvic floor pain for as long as 2 years and just thought there was nothing I could do about it. I found Quintessence Physical Therapy just by searching around me and am so glad I did. Swapnali really helped me understand the different factors that might be contributing to my pain and was patient in helping me work on strengthening different parts of my body. I never felt rushed in any appointments, and I always felt comfortable in her care. She was very kind and professional in all our sessions. I feel more equipped now to release tense areas, and I feel like I even learned a thing or two about the rest of my body. I would definitely recommend Swapnali for any pelvic floor related issues."

"I saw Dr. Swapnali after I suffered a shoulder injury from playing volleyball/tennis. She was super knowledgeable about the body and explained how everything connects. After every session, I left feeling better. Not only that, but she was extremely flexible when I would need to change my appointments due to unforeseen circumstances. I have been able to return to the sports I love after months of recovery.
Would recommend Dr. Swapnali to anyone needing an experienced, affordable, and kind PT."

"I had been experiencing back and neck issues in and off for years…I had been going to the chiropractor, yoga, and eating right, but nothing seemed to permanently fix my issues. It finally reached a peak when my neck was strained so badly I couldn’t turn my head to the right without feeling like I was going to pass out! I went to my doctor and was recommended to Quintessence. I started going about 2 months ago and I have never felt better! My neck is better and all my back issues have been resolved! Wish I would have come in sooner!!!"

"I wholeheartedly recommend Quintessence Physical Therapy. I had chronic hip pain for three to four years which prevented me from sleeping well and I my hip hurt while sitting. I could not sit comfortably for long periods of time. The first therapist I went to provided me with a good deal of relief at first, but after six weeks or so there was no further improvement, even after four to five months of therapy. So I quit. I then found a highly recommended therapist whose approach also gave me a little more relief at first, but again there was no further improvement even after around four months of therapy. By contrast, after only two weeks of therapy with Ms. Chaudhary, my symptoms have nearly disappeared. I sleep better and I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. Moreover, the hip discomfort and pain I feel while sitting are nearly gone. The difference is in her approach. She is whole-listic, meaning that she examines the muscles and fascia throughout the body to identify which ones need attention. By contrast, the previous therapists focused only in the hip area and, in doing so, did not pick up on conditions in other parts of my body that were contributing to the pain. And what a difference that has made! Not only has my hip pain nearly disappeared after only two weeks of therapy, I’ve noticed other improvements too. My gait is more fluid, both hips feel stronger and my lower back is more relaxed. In short, I’m very glad to be in Ms. Chaudhary’s care."

"I suddenly developed the acute pain in my back side of left shoulder near scapula when I was in my younger son"s residence in Atlanta GA . We came from India in April 22 and had a plan to stay for 6 months.
As I have to travel to Austin TX to stay with my elder son I got treated in Urgent care in Atlanta and got some relief with pain killer shot & medicines .
Somehow I could reach Austin TX and immediately on next day visited General medical practicinor DR.Sukanya Burugu who
suggested us to visit physical Therapist Ms. Swapnali Chaudhary of Quintessence Physical Therapy .
Initially we called Ms. Swapnali & had a detailed discussions on call where she enquired about the complaint . during the discussions itself I got the confidence about Ms. Swapnali and find that I am in the safe hand for my treatment .
As a first aid she suggested to apply ice pack on my pain area due to which I got relief till I got her first appointment after 4 days . With ice pack I could do my routine minimum work .
During my first appointment , she asked lot of questions & got all the details about the pain and any history earlier . Her approach was very nice to the point and built further confidence in me . she inspected the area of pain , done in depth inspections on muscle & nerve functions . Carried out some exercises & message therapy . I feel better on the first session itself which lasted for 90 minutes . She also gave exercises to perform at home along with videos & instructions .
my next appointment was after 4 days and when I went for the treatment second time my pains were reduced to almost 80% after first session & workout at home on the exercises she gave . On second session she further checked the area of pain , done some advance exercises & message and I got further relief after second session . different exercises were added through videos & instructions to carry out at home
My pains got reduced further with exercises suggested and I almost got to normal within a weeks time . My third appoint was after 7 days & before I visited I was totally recovered to normal and even started all my activities 100% .
My third visit was just to make sure that all my muscle movements are normal and pains should not re appear again . She gave me advanced exercises to perform to make muscle more stronger .
Now I am 100% fit and do my regular routine even with her permission I have started swimming and now could enjoy my stay in US .
I would definitely like to thank Swapnali for a wonder full treatment given to bringing me back into action .
I will never forget the effective treatment given by Swapnali and would recommend the people who are suffering from pains must see Ms. Swapnali at Quintessence Physical Therapy center ."

She never rushes through the visit, always give time and attention. She follows hand on approach which I love the most.
Definitely recommend it!"

"Why is Quintessence Physical Therapy different than big chain physical therapy places? Well, Swapnali Chaudhary is not afraid to treat the whole person. I had gone to several physical therapy places that were approved by my insurance, but these places refused to address adjacent areas outside of what was written on the prescription. They also put me on exercise machines for like 90% of the session. Swapnali is different. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows that pain in one area might be related to an issue in another area. She doesn't just give you a list of exercises and hopes things will get better. She thoroughly explains every exercise, what muscles are being targeted with each movement, and (most importantly) when to stop targeting those muscles. She also does manual therapy, like myofascial release. If you feel like nothing is working for you, please give Quintessence Physical Therapy a call. You won't regret it!"

"I worked with PT Swapnali Chaudhary from Quintessence Physical Therapy, for several weeks in regards to my knee pain, which I had for several months. Swapnali was extremely knowledgeable, patient, diligent and helpful throughout my entire rehab process. She was always prepared and committed to each session, ensuring I was progressing according to schedule, was available over the phone and did multiple follow ups. I also appreciated her quick-wittedness and humor during some of the tougher sessions.

Due to Swapnali's help, I was able to finish my therapy in very short time and my pain levels went down from 8 to almost zero, I'm now able to walk, run and function without any limitation.

I highly recommend Swapnali from Quintessence Physical Therapy!"

"Several weeks ago my neurologist recommended that I go through the physical therapy program, LSVT-BIG, which is designed to help with dealing with the symptoms of Parkinson's. I had the good fortune to find a physical therapist certified in the BIG protocol at Quintessence Physical Therapy. In addition to the intensive and comprehensive introduction for performing the BIG exercises, the PT also employed other exercises and techniques to help me regain and/or improve physical skills. I feel I made significant improvement in balance, mobility, fluidity of movement, strength and coordination over the four weeks of the program. I was very impressed with the results of the physical therapy I received."
