Case study of a 51 year old suffering from Ankylosing spondylitis, knee pain and impaired gait
LIFE BEFORE ATMANTAN
A 51 year old gentleman got admitted at Atmantan with a history of Ankylosing spondylitis (an inflammatory disease that can over time even cause some of the bones in the spine to fuse) with the Auto-immune marker HLAB27 positive (Ankylosing spondylitis has no known specific cause, though genetic factors seem to be involved). In particular, people who have a gene called HLA-B27 are at a greatly increased risk of developing ankylosing spondylitis, however, only some people with this gene develop the condition). He also complained about pain in his left knee, due to which his gait was waddling mildly and he was limping a tad too.
HEALING JOURNEY AT ATMANTAN
He thus came to Atmantan for 10 days with a conviction to align his posture and to reduce the knee pain. Upon his Doctor consultation, it was realised that he had a history of high cholesterol and his blood reports also showed a high C Reactive Protein (A high CRP reading is a sign of acute inflammation). He was prescribed the Restorative Physiotherapy Retreat. On admission, his physiotherapy diagnostics showed that his range of motion at the spine level was very compromised and he even suffered from a hunched back. There was also a mild leg length discrepancy.
The treatment modalities consisted of continuous exercise rehabilitation along with acupuncture, moxibustion and kriyas. This was all prescribed along with localised therapies and he was also put on a grain-free diet along with freshly made kadas to combat the chronic inflammation. He was also given Atmantan Naturals’ Super Antiox 6 supplement (as an antioxidant) Boswellia Max (to reduce joint swelling) and Natflam 6 (for reducing systemic inflammation).
HIS TRANSFORMATION | RESTORATIVE PHYSIOTHERAPY | 10 NIGHTS
While his cholesterol markers also improved, right there toward the end of his retreat, the guest started seeing positive changes as his range of motion increased and the stiff muscles started easing up. The postural improvements were even evident to the naked eye!
His gait pattern changed, his limping had also completely vanished.
In fact the Range of motion for the spine had improved with flexion improving from 40 to 50 degrees; the extension had improved from 10 degrees to 15 degrees and one adduction (the movement of a limb or other part towards the midline of the body or towards another part) had improved from 15 to 20 degrees and the second adduction had increased from 10 degrees to 20 degrees!
Even the knee joint flexion had improved from 120 to 150 degrees; extension had improved from 15 to 0 degrees!He was ecstatic with his results and he had very successfully achieved what he had set out to in his healing journey at Atmantan!
