HE HAS treated Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Michael Douglas and now Dr Mosaraf Ali is ready to serve palsied patients in the State Capital.

This Kolkata born doctor has completed his research on stroke patients and treated numerous with two or more strokes in London and also in Lucknow. Now he is ready to share his discovery with physiotherapists.

“I studied various treatments, including Allopathic, Homeopathic and acupressure and developed a message manipulated technique which uses all these streams too. The technique works on the pressure points of the body organs,” Dr Ali said.

He said one of the forms of Marshal arts ‘Marma’ (commonly used by people in south India) was also studied for this was a defense technique that makes a particular organ defunct for a time period. “If a certain stroke can make organ defunct, its antidote would certainly boost movement. With this belief, I studied every possible stream that can benefit patients,” Dr Ali, who made four Lucknowites with zero movements move on their own, said.

Being handicapped is a big problem in the west and it costs over 39000 British Pound per year just to keep patient under nursing care, while treatment is another form of expense. My techniques uses pressure points and is a better option where the focus is rehabilitation,” he said while showing some of the patients like Rajiv Sharma (25), Shushila  Devi (70) who got treatment at Mayo Hospital under his research project.

“India gets a lot of spastic children and treating them is a major task for us. I do not want to keep my technique limited instead would disseminate it among physiotherapists to benefit maximum,” he said.

Avoiding to comment upon his celebrity patients Dr Ali only said, “stars may appear robust from outside but they are simple human beings and get hurt too. They also need treatment.”

City’s senior neurologist Dr Sandeep Agrawal who coordinated the research in Lucknow said improvement had been observed in patients with seven-week treatment. “Some may take more time while some may response rapidly,” he said.
