Abhay Singh (name changed), 55, suffered from severe lower back pain for 7 years that included radiating pain and occasional numbness in both his legs. Repeated tests and MRIs showed Diffused Disc Bulge in all the discs from L1 to S1 on his spine, however all the treatments failed in improving his condition. He was unable to sit, stand or walk for more than 10 minutes at a time. After trying various Allopathic, Ayurvedic and Physiotherapeutic routes, he was told that surgery was the only option he had left.
Mr. Singh decided against surgery when he was told that chances of successful recovery after surgery are as low as 30 percent. He chose to keep looking for conservative, non-surgical recovery. He came upon Qi Spine Clinic website while searching for treatment options for his condition. Their comprehensive and accurate diagnostic method and non-invasive treatment approach seemed aligned to his goal of recovering surgery-free and he immediately booked an appointment.
At Qi, a Spine Specialist examined Mr. Singh’s condition and did a Digital Spine Analysis to diagnose the root cause of the problem. During the DSA, Mr. Singh discovered that 85% of back pain originates in the muscle tissues and not the bones. That is why the DSA was the best tool to analyze and diagnose the root cause of his pain: because it tested for Spine functionality before testing for anatomical problems. So while his diffused disc were definitely a problem, his pain originated from his severely weakened muscles. The test revealed several weak muscles for Mr. Singh and the doctor prescribed him a treatment course.
His precise treatment protocol helped isolate his muscle tissue and regenerate the weak tissue. Soon he resumed muscle functionality and could walk, sit and stand for longer durations without any pain. “I have started to live a normal life again. I can climb stairs effortlessly and can drive for hours without pain. A 12-hour drive to Udaipur single-handedly is a feat I can boast of. ” says Mr. Singh
Recent research has shown that conservative treatment has the best results for a majority of cases with mechanical back pain, and surgery is required in less than 5% of these cases. Though there are specific conditions where spinal surgery is clearly indicated, standard healthcare guidelines suggest that in patients with predominant back pain coming from degenerated discs, surgery should only be prescribed after medical / rehabilitative management options have been explored. The protocols formulated by the Qi Spine Research Academy allow the Spine Specialists at Qi Spine Clinic to precisely treat patients and help them recover surgery-free.
