Listhesis means simple dislocation of the bones from their axis. Imagine when you have almost every bone of the lumbar region is dislocated. Same was the condition of Mr. Singh. A young boy who came to us for treatment of Retrolisthesis L2 over L3, L3 over L4, L4 over L5 and L5 over S1 without surgery. He is studying in Canada. Indian Citizen. He never dreamt that he will have something like this in his spine. His career was at risk. How can he think about fixing the whole spine. Because as per the MRI findings transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) was the only option for him.
Everybody says that there cannot be any treatment for the listhesis condition. Whether it is in grade I. But here we had the whole lumbosacral spine. This case came as a challenge to us. and we started planning for the treatment.
Treatment of Retrolisthesis L2 over L3, L3 over L4, L4 over L5 and L5 over S1
The basic problem with patient was- his posture. Along with bad posture he had to work day night to earn bread an butter in Canada. This all together made him a patient of Retrolisthesis L2 over L3, L3 over L4, L4 over L5 and L5 over S1. Diagnosis was okay but when it came to treatment of Retrolisthesis L2 over L3, L3 over L4, L4 over L5 and L5 over S1, nobody has any clue- how to do this?
He looked for all means and at last he came to Sukhayu.
Mr. Singh was not able to walk and sit properly. Pain was regularly radiating in his legs. He was tying some strips on the whole leg before going to bed so that he can sleep well. In standing posture he could not hold his body for more than 5 minutes even.
This case is a landmark for Sukhayu Ayurved. Not only pain and discomfort disappeared in patient but also his MRI changed markedly. The only thing which was reduced but didn’t disappear was- mild disc bulge in the L4-L5 alone. If we compare the MRI one on one we can understand the change in the condition of patient too.
If we compare both the MRIs we can see that L2-L3, L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 discs were having diffuse disc bulge but in the report after the treatment, we can see the complete changes in the condition of patient.
This type of the evidence based treatment of Ayurveda helps in establishing Ayurveda as a complete science and Sukhayu Ayurved is committed to this achievement for Ayurveda.
