A total of 100 people including adults and old aged individuals were treated and advised by the respected team of Physiotherapy & Nutrition & dietetics professionals. Large number of people who were part of the Camp belonged to different age groups and were having problems like knee, back and neck pain. Many of them reported to be suffering from musculoskeletal problems, post fever ailments and cardiac ailments. General fitness levels were evaluated for young adults. Regular exercise, ergonomic advices and life style modification were emphasized upon to halt and alter the deterioration level of the patient. The villagers were counseled about the importance of hygiene and exercises in maintaining a good health. In rural areas, the patients are less concerned about their health which increases the prevalence of many problems. The physiotherapists adviced patients about exercises to decrease pain and improve their lifestyle; to go for regular follow up exercises to help the patients to do the normal ADLS without any problem and continue with a good diet for maintaining good health.

Bhalla Foundation wishes to follow up at this village after deliberations at the findings of the data collected from the village. The Foundation wishes to play a vital role in bringing a positive change in the lives of the people residing in Anangpur Village.
