Now, India's Qi Spine Clinic has made measuring of spine function easier for
spine specialists with the creation of digital spine analysis (DSA), a muscular
evaluation of the spine, with the use of a spine function graph.
The DSA confers the benefits of customized treatment and nonsurgical therapy
for back pain.
Garima Anandani, head of spine consultants at Qi, said, "From bankers
to housewives, young college students to sportsmen, Qi has seen every
conceivable patient category."
He also added, "The problems are all different, and hence the therapy
is different for each person too."
Conventional methods of spine scanning, such as x-rays and magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI), have been unsuccessful in identifying a clear cause
for back pain in nearly 85% of cases according to a statement from the clinic.
The findings were released in the journal Appetite
