New technique using sound waves effective in curing spinal damage
Dr Aslam Khan has developed non-invasive technology called Khan Kinetic Treatment (KKT) that uses low frequency sound waves to painlessly realign and restore the spine to its natural position while regenerating tissue.
According to Dr Khan, KKT is not a replacement for surgery but an option that patients should consider before surgery, which is a drastic step and should only be their last resort.
The novel technology is extremely effective in reducing or completely eliminating the pain of people with spine related conditions including injuries due to accidents, sports, sudden falls, postural abnormalities, stress, genetic pre-disposition, herniated disks, neck and back pain, osteoarthritis, headaches and sciatica.
“The treatment helps in gentle repositioning of vertebrae, functional restoration of the central nervous system and cellular bio-synthesis which is responsible for restoring and regenerating worn or damaged disks,” said Dr. Aslam Khan, Chairman and CEO of KKT International Centre for Spine.
The working of Khan Kinetic Treatment
The treatment process of KKT involves X-rays of the cervical (neck) spine, which are in turn analyzed by computer software.
This is followed by a self-assessment regarding the pain by the patients.
The doctors then focus on treating the core issues linked with spine related conditions by using sound frequencies to address core spinal distortions and disturbances specific to the patient’s condition.
Khan stated, "The treatment corrects the bio mechanical axis of the spine, by use of sound waves which are focused on a specific area of the beginning of spine. These sound waves resonate down resulting in gentle repositioning of the vertebrae.
"The KKT treatment program is designed for each individual's specific profile after a range of pre-treatment diagnostic assessment to facilitate the healing process and to guide patients through stages of KKT care.”
Outcome of the treatment
Following the medical treatment, muscles, blood vessels and neural communication are stimulated and cellular bio-synthesis is triggered which propels the self-healing process of the body.
Dr Nishad Telang, an orthopedic of the Mumbai Centre stated, "A comprehensive treatment of 20 visits has significant impact on physical health by reducing or eliminating pain, promoting tissue regeneration to remedy narrowing and loss of normal disk height, arresting bone degeneration that lead to osteophytes or bone spurs, repairing and strengthening tendons and ligaments, enhancing coordination, increasing range of motion and improving posture.”
KKT has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) as a treatment device.
KKT has seven centres across the world in countries like Canada, UAE (2), Germany (4), Taiwan, and China (2). It has delivered more than 200,000 treatments so far.
