“A year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with degenerative spondilolesthis, spinal stenosis and degenerative discs from L2/3 to L5 S1. At this time I was given 2 options, conservative treatment or surgery. I opted for conservative. My back and leg pain began about 4 years ago during which I have undergone many treatments and therapies such as massage therapy, acupuncture, cupping, physiotherapy, chiropractic, traction, intense daily exercise in the gym and swimming daily ~ 2km. I even lost 15 kilos in an effort to decrease the pressure on my spine but nothing was resonating. In fact my pain seemed to be getting worse. YAPCHANKOR was my last hope before resorting to surgery for decompression and instrumental fusion. I was consuming a lot of medication such as Lyrica and Celebrex and didn’t want to do this for the rest of my life.
At first I was very skeptical that this treatment would be any different but I had to give it a try. My therapist Ganesh Vijayam seemed to understand my problem and set out a course of treatment to prove to me that YAPCHANKOR would be different. He asked me to keep a daily log of my activities to help determine if I was doing something to aggravate my problem. He showed me several exercises which have made a world of difference to managing my pain. He offered me advice to keep me from re-injuring myself such as changing the side of the bed I was sleeping on to make it easier getting up without pulling unnecessarily my problem side.
After 10 sessions, my pain level has gone from an 8 or 9 to a 2 or 3 – something I can now manage. And that is without any medication. I consider this a victory!
Walking great distances is still a problem for me but by stretching before and after, its not as bad.
I must give credit to my therapist Ganesh for taking the time to listen and try to understand my pain and work with me to improve my situation. I was never made to feel like just another number. For the first time I felt that someone truly cared. Thank you YAPCHANKOR. You now have a convert!”
