ensured non-surgical recovery in 95% of
back pain cases.
Please elaborate on your approach to back
and neck pain treatment?
We adopt a four-step approach. The first
step is pain management using cell repair
technology, or frequency specific microcur-
rent (FSM), that uses extremely low fre-
quency of electric current to treat the root
cause of pain by aiding tissue repair at a
cellular level. FSM therapy has been proven
to enhance the healing process in damaged
soft tissue and reduces inflammation. It is
a safer, more effective way to reduce pain
and has no long-term side effects compared
to most painkillers.
Step two is accurate diagnosis through
Digital Spine Analysis (DSA). Before back
and neck pain can be treated, it needs to be
diagnosed correctly. Identifying and isolat-
ing the root cause of the pain is essential to
restoring the mobility and function.
A DSA test is used to measure spine func-
tion in the same way that a cardiac stress
test is used to diagnose cardiac function.
Unlike an MRI or X-ray test that can only
provide a visual static snapshot image,
the DSA test determines the ability of the
muscle tissue to support the spine during
Step three is targeted treatment through
isolation technology. The isolation technol-
ogy is able to isolate the weak area and
precisely target weak tissues. This results in
focused treatment and hence the regenera-
tion of muscle tissue is faster. With conven-
tional physiotherapy, the spine is forced to
carry our entire body weight even when it
may be too weak.
We believe that one session of isolation
treatment is more effective than three ses-
sions of conventional physiotherapy.
And step four is recurrence management.
Back pain can reoccur in patients even after
successful treatment if proper prevention
plan isn’t followed. It is therefore important
to prevent the pain from returning after
in India to introduce a motion analysis
based functional diagnostic test (DSA) that
clearly identifies weak muscles in the spine.
And our new Isolation Technology gives the
doctor live bio-feedback, so that the diagno-
sis is precise and hence the treatment can
How different is the treatment of back and
neck pain in ‘QI Spine Clinic’ from what is
being offered in the market?
While most specialists focus on the struc-
ture of the spine for back pain patients, we
look at the structure and the function of
the spine. As stated earlier, we focus on the
non-surgical treatment through accurate
diagnosis, pain management, targeted treat-
ment of the affected area and functional re-
covery through muscular regeneration. The
patient usually takes two to three weeks to
a few months to fully recover, depending on
the severity of the pain.
The successful treatment outcomes we
have achieved over the last eight years, is
thanks to accurate diagnosis of the root
cause of back and neck pain. QI Spine
Clinic’s medical treatment protocols have
