For a long time now, spine and joint diseases have been among the most spread pathologies world-wide. This is due to specific and environmental factors of the different countries as well as to individual reasons in the subjects involved. It is furthermore linked, as denominator common to developed countries, to sedentary habits and to frequent laziness or impossibility to walk considerable distances daily, regularly and systematically; not occasionally as it usually happens (if it does). Statistics show that once reached their 30s, 7% of world population suffers from what is generically called “backache” while 25% reports subclinical manifestations of it.
Among those patients suffering from “backache” and following secondary neurological manifestations, young and middle-aged (40-50) people are the most prevailing cases; patients belonging to working age are usually oriented towards pharmacological therapies in order to achieve the pain syndrome regression as fast as possible.
But not always, and not with everyone do medicines work with the efficacy expected, while it is clear how the prolonged and intensive use of medicines implies not welcome, and at times dangerous side effects, always and for everyone.
Side effects are objective limits of all pharmacological treatments. However, if these limits must be accepted (always under medical examination) in those cases where no alternatives are available, they can be avoided, so becoming virtual, when an alternative exists and the strong need of medicines ceases.
That is the case of “backache” that can be healed through a manual treatment of the spine, without turning to any kind of medicine.
A centuries-old method, originated in Russia and Ukraine, and recently set by the Ukraine academician Nikolaj Andreevich Kassian is particularly famous among many others in spine manual treatment. In the last few years, the so called Kassian Method has been worked out and revised by Prof. Saidbegov. By him defined Non Invasive Articular and Vertebral Replacement (NIVAR), this technique differentiates from the others for these two main reasons:
1) It can be applied by specialists only; long-experienced neurologists, orthopaedics and doctors. Not less than 5-7 years of daily training are needed to master the methodology.
2) The use of so-called “short levers”, vertebral apophyses, in the manipulation of the back.
NIVAR method allows the practitioner to operate on the focus of the pathology since the first day of treatment and to heal at the same time the whole spine and the different suffering joints.
This method is successfully applied to the following pathologies:
Scoliosis, kyphosis, upper and lower limbs arthrosis, cervical, lumbosacral and thoracic arthrosis and their secondary emergence (cephalalgia, cervicalgy, dorsalgy, lombalgy, lombo-sciatalgy, vertebrobasical vascular flux disorder, vertebral artery syndrome, etc.), discopaties, protruded and slipped disc (expelled also), limbs periarthritis, scapulo-homeral periarthritis, epicondylitis, styloiditis, etc.
The treatment starts with an in-depth analysis of the instrumental enquiries results, a full neurological-orthopaedic examination and a diagnosis on the pathological state of the spine or the joint, operating with extreme tactile sensitivity thanks to years of experience.
Main goal of those manipulations is first to release the vertebral segment – focus of the disease – and the whole spine, and secondly to normalize intervertebral relations eliminating the deformity of intervertebral joints capsules and their “subluxation” so to restore the motion of the vertebro-motory segment and the removal of inflammation and pain. The therapy’s result is a muscular and tendinous relaxation along with the restoration of the spine biomechanical function. Thanks to manipulation, blood and lymphatic circulation is improved together with cells metabolism of the painful segment and of the whole spine: this improving the metabolic processes of cartilaginous tissues, around discs and joints as well. As acknowledged, it is by intervertebral discs pathologies due to radicular disc conflict that structural metabolic in adjacent tissues occur: tendons, ligaments, neurosteophibrosi muscles. On these formations the methods operates as well.
Slipped disc can be repositioned through the method only in its acute phase (early hours, sometimes first days from the slipping event). If a long time from the disc emergence has elapsed, manipulation can eliminate the inflaming process around the hernia, freeing the edema and promoting the reabsorption of the liquid part; with subsequent calcification of the hernia and liberation of the compressed nerve root. It will result in the elimination of the lumbosciatalgic syndrome and the re-establishment of the functions of the vertebral segments and of the whole spine.
The therapy is organized in courses of 10 sittings each, daily.
During each course of manipulation, patients must suspend all other current therapies like physiotherapy and medical gymnastics. It is appropriate furthermore to stop practicing sports and hard works. At the end of each sitting it is recommended to relax 20-30 minutes on a small bed.
