Yes it is true and a proven fact that the SPARRC team has gotten people rid of their aches & pains without the embarking of a scary and painful journey, surgery!
Dr.Kannan Pugazhendi , the institute’s beacon has shed light onto the otherwise gloomy patients who walk into the sports medicine centre weighed down with the thought that surgery is the only solution to their persisting or acute pain. Sounds unbelievable, isn’t it, but it is very much true.
Condition Surgeries avoided
- IVDP – Discectomy, Laminectomy
- Arthritis – Joint replacements
- Ligament injury – Reconstruction surgeries
- Avascular necrosis – Partial replacements
- Radiculopathy – Spinal stabilization surgery
- Spasticity – Soft tissue release surgery
- Peripheral nerve injuries – Nerve repair surgery
- Muscle tear – Muscle repair surgery
- Spondylarthropathies – Arthrodesis surgery
So how does the team work its magic? Dr’s knowledge and experience in the field of Sports Medicine has been a tool that has led him and his team members to think outside the box to approach and carry out a healing process with absolutely no surgical intervention. Conservative Management is the clinical term which at SPARRC is a therapeutically wholesome method comprising of Physiotherapy, Aqua therapy, Acupuncture, Pranic healing and Rehabilitation. Our effective therapeutic procedures are always preceded by an accurate diagnosis of the cause of pain which comes from an in detail history taking from the patient and not necessarily from costly MRI scans, etc.
Advanced Surgical procedures today are available no doubt but a cut, remove and sew approach may turn out to be a sour experience both mentally and physically, as it is often forgotten to prepare oneself for post surgical complications such poor muscle tone, stiffness and weight gain to name a few. Conservative management of pain is safe and effective in the long run with regards to alleviating pain and keeping the physical activity of the patient at a near moderate level unlike a surgical procedure that involves a period of immobilization, only sending the patients health and fitness downhill.
Our team has been helping patients keep their medical expenses and hospitalization minimal by providing therapy directed to the cause of pain. Whether it is an arthritic pain for which normally knee replacement is suggested or a disc prolapse for which removal is suggested, we examine the surrounding soft tissue based on which the prognosis is decided. Aqua therapy is our weapon to be rid of knee pain and core exercises and stretches to get rid of back ache, therefore enabling our patients bid farewell to pain altogether.
CAN SURGERY BE AVOIDED?………..
At SPARRC we make it happen, the patients watch it happen and some wonder how it happened. To determine the choice of treatment requires a diagnosis to understand the human body with its astounding individuality, which is the unique talent of Dr.Kannan Pugazhendi. He stresses on an extensive history elicitation from the patient which has been the hallmark of medicine, now buried in favor of costly investigations run by technological advancement.
Our Sports medicine Institute is driven by skill and human care, where exercise prescription supersedes the prescription of medicine, ensuring speedy recovery and good health in the process. Inspite of Key hole surgeries which are made alluring, the fear of surgery still remains. The Key hole nature only reduces the external incision but not the invasion. Even a Key hole invasion is an extensive procedure with its own outcomes, compared to an exercise prescribed to maintain health.
As surgical procedures are avoided at SPARRC so are the extensive costs that go with making the treatment affordable and effective. It is common to note that a patient who walks in with a complaint, at SPARRC, does not usually walk back into the institute with the same complaint when it is cleared by the team. The institute not only treats the injury and illness but keeps the patients in the best of their wellness. People talk about eradicating illness; here we talk about establishing wellness.
