Spinal cord injury is a devastating life-altering illness that happens due to accidents because of falls from heights or road traffic accidents. In India, the focus has always been on acute hospital care and there are some excellent facilities for this. When it comes to rehabilitation, there is a serious lack of information and availability of centres.

More than 300 national and international Spine Care Specialists congregated in Chennai for ISSICON 2018, a three-day International Conference on Spine Injuries. The event held for the first time in Chennai, was heralded as a great success by leading national and international names in the field of spine surgery and related fields.

Spinal cord injury is a devastating life-altering illness that happens due to accidents because of falls from heights or road traffic accidents. In India, the focus has always been on acute hospital care and there are some excellent facilities for this. When it comes to rehabilitation, there is a serious lack of information and availability of centres.
Focusing on the theme ‘Spinal Cord Injury Care in Emerging India’, ISSICON 2018 mainly delved uponbuilding awareness on injury prevention, pre-hospital care, treatments provided and rehabilitation. The main aim of organising the conference in Chennai is to sensitise the medical and paramedical professionals, policy makers and community in this region on the dire need for setting up rehabilitation services for the Spinal Cord Injured.

“There is a long list of unanswered questions and controversies surrounding the management of spinal ailments”, said Dr. H.S. Chhabra – Chairperson ISSICON 2018, Secretary of the Spinal Cord Society and President of the International Spinal Cord Society. “We see a strong need to disseminate the right information on the recent advances in this space, and it is with this in mind that ISSICON is organised each year. Deliberations amongst eminent faculty members from around the globe and from around India provides an excellent forum for trying to achieve these objectives.”

  1. Recently, a business associate shared with me an intriguing story about someone with back pain...

    Michelle Onoff is a successful yoga instructor. Yet for some reason, she suffered with lower back pain.

    As a chiropractor, and someone in the healthcare field, I was fascinated by this.

    I don't know about you, but I was under the impression that yoga instructors, given their active, stretch-filled, muscle-focused, posture-perfect profession and lifestyle, would be the LAST PEOPLE ON EARTH to experience back pain.

    Actually, I was kind of shocked.

    If a health-minded yoga instructor can be dealt a crippling back pain blow, what does this say about the rest of us?

    Here's Michelle story in her own words. I think it'll inspire hope if you're suffering...

    "I was feeling very weak in my core area. And I was having some radiating pain in my lower back.

    And I was going to the doctors, and they were telling me things like you need to have disc replacement.

    You need to have all these surgeries...

    You need to be on these pain medications;

    And they wanted to put me through a lot of surgical procedures...

    I didn’t want to do ANY of that. But the pain was so bad... I needed some relief.

    So I went to two neurosurgeons and I went to a back pain specialist...

    The surgeons wanted to operate on me in different places...

    … and the back pain specialist wanted to do various procedures, including implanting something permanent in my spine.

    I’ve had four procedures that involved needles in my spine, epidurals in my spine and that only gave me a little bit of temporary relief for a couple days.

    But it did not cure or really help anything.

    It just put a band-aid on a pain for couple of days and that was it.

    After my first session of Back Pain Relief4Life, I felt an opening in my back that I haven’t felt in a long time.

    I felt stronger to my core and I felt that that radiating burning heat pain that I was feeling, seem to dissipate a little bit.

    It seemed to just open up my back in general.

    And then after my second session today, I noticed EVEN MORE the stretch in my lower back and more strengthening in muscles that had been weak that I think might help support my lower back.

    I was VERY SKEPTICAL about doing Back Pain Relief4Life. Because, as I am a yoga instructor, I feel very knowledgeable in anatomy. And how to help people that come to me in pain.

    But I was not aware of certain muscles that I was not using in the body that might help my lower back."

    Here's the back pain program she's referring to:

    ==>Back Pain Relief 4 Life

    I share this with you today because if you suffer from back pain (like 3/4 of the population), I'm told this pain relief program WORKS WONDERS.

    People, in as little as 16 minutes, have experienced nothing less than total relief. Do nothing more than a specific sequence of 8 simple, pain-relieving movements.

    Sounds incredible, but yet Michelle is a prime example.

    See for yourself. Especially if you're being told surgery, needles and medication are in your immediate future.

    You've got nothing to lose.

    PS: My personal takeaway? Michelle was humble to admit yoga wasn't working for her.

    To me? That takes guts.

    She was also smart enough to stay away from drugs and surgery when there were other more natural options.

    But sometimes, one gets to the point where you'll try ANYTHING to get even a little bit of relief. If you're at that point, I encourage you to check out:
