For a young 33 years old woman when it it time for everything. She was having the pain in low back while sitting in office. But she was not sure that things will worse later on. When she was tired of bearing the pain. She decided to go for MRI. And MRI report came like a shock for her. She never expected what consulting doctor told her. For treatment, they will have to insert some plates and screws to fix the bones- L4 and L5. Because she got Grade II spondylolisthesis of L5, L5-S1 disc protrusion. The fifth bone of lumbar left its location and completely dislocated.
When I came to know about the problem, that I am suffering with Grade II spondylolisthesis of L5, L5-S1 disc protrusion and also some compression in L4-L5. I took it easily for two hours. Later on when neurosurgeon told me about severity of the problem and about screws and plates for back bone. I got numb. This methodology of treatment shattered me down at that movement. My husband is an allopathy doctor. He tried to counsel me. But I was against surgery. Thus I asked him to look for Ayurvedic treatment for Grade II spondylolisthesis of L5 without surgery.
As patient shared in experience mail with us..
While changing posture, she always felt immense pain. Standing after sitting and waking up in the morning was torturous for her. Every neurosurgeon advised her for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF). And even after this complicated surgery of TLIF no body was ready to assure her for recovery. Fear of failure of screws and plates and spinal surgery complications were major. This is where she decided to go for Ayurvedic treatment for Grade II spondylolisthesis without surgery. Her search ended with Sukhayu Ayurved, Jaipur. And how she came in touch with us.
Grade II spondylolisthesis of L5, L5-S1 disc protrusion
First we need to understand the problem of Mrs. Bhatnagar (Name changed for sake of privacy and requested by patient). Spondylolisthesis is a condition where bony rim of the vertebrae which fixe two vertebrae together breaks. Due to this bones dislocate from its location. Arrangement of the vertebrae disturbs completely. Along with the arrangement of the vertebrae, the spinal canal also disturbs. Due to this disturbance- the spinal nerves disturbs badly.
When patient came to us- she was not able to stand for more than 5 minutes. Pain was radiating in the lower limb. Which was increasing after changing the posture. Leaving bed in morning was just a horror for her. Her bladder was not able to control the urine because of the compression on the nerves.
She already tried- physiotherapy, western medicines, homeopathy everything. She had already tried the Ayurvedic treatment at some centre in Hyderabad.
It was like a journey for me. I tried pain killers-physiotherapy. Because my husband is an allopath. That is why he was not ready to go to some other pathy. I convinced him for homeopathy. But my husband kept on asking me- how can medicines move the bones? I was not sure. But fear of surgery was bigger and I awaited for one month. But things didn’t work. Went to youtube. Found about Dr Pardeep Sharma. At least he sounded practical. His video on spondylolisthesis was educative. This was the first time, my husband was convinced for the treatment with Ayurveda.

Things were not easy for her. Hopes shattered many times. But kept faith in treatment and her journey was just a roller coster ride.
We decided to travel to Jaipur. And I came to sukhayu. The first weak was a hopeless weak. I cried several times. Whenever doctors at Sukhayu told me to bear pain. I felt that they know nothing about treatment and killing the time. But things changed for me very soon. My pain started fluctuating. At least I was able to sit in corridors and to talk with other patients. When I left Jaipur after treatment of 21 days. I came back with just 10-15% pain relief. My husband when saw me on airport limping felt bad. But I was carrying faith with me. I kept the treatment continue.
