A new spine analysis technique claims a 93% success rate in diagnosis and treatment of back pain, minus surgery
Daksha Shah (57) was unable to sit, bend, stand or walk for more than 10 minutes. She was advised surgery after she met an orthopaedic doctor with complaints of acute back pain. After a thorough evaluation at Qi Spine Clinic, specialists created a focussed spinal treatment for her. In three months, she had no complaints of back or leg pain and didn’t require surgery.
Qi Spine Clinic has created protocols for functional diagnosis of the spine and partnered with medical technology companies in the West to acquire diagnostic tools. On the basis of these they have created a Digital Spinal Analysis format with the helpof five patented computer-controlled devices. The technology helps doctors identify probable causes of back pain caused by functional deficiencies among patients where MRIs and X-rays failed to provide a diagnosis.
The diagnostic process consists of consultation, digital spine analysis and report generation and findings. The process begins with a detailed consultation with the spine specialists to understand the patient’s case history. This is followed by a digitally administered diagnostic test called the Digital Spine Analysis, which determines the functionality of the patient’s spine, including its strength, mobility and strength relation.
The test results help diagnose the condition of the patient’s spine, and identifies the root cause of the pain. Finally, a comprehensive treatment programme is devised based on initial consultations as well as the test findings, to best address the specific condition of the patient.
