DISC DISORDERS AND SPINAL INJURY

Disc disorders such as herniation and degenerative disc disease can cause severe neck pain, chronic lower back pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling in the arms and shoulders and muscle weakness in the legs.


Spinal injury may cause weakness and loss of feeling at and below the injury and can cause problems such as: increased muscle contraction (spasticity), loss of normal bowel and bladder control (including constipation, incontinence and bladder spasms), numbness, sensory changes, pain or weakness.

JYOTI, 43, USA

HERNIATED DISCS

Jyoti came to the clinic suffering with both lower and upper spine pain. It had become unmanageable. Jyoti attended the clinic over 2 seasons.

My time at the Bone and Body Clinic was deeply transformative. I experienced the only actual substantial and long-lasting relief I’ve ever known for the chronic neck and back pain I’ve had over half my life. Ringo was able to make an instant assessment of my condition based on an initial appointment and a mode of treatment was prescribed. His adjustments are truly mind-blowing; his expertise is unparalleled. Miranda’s no-nonsense approach to leading the exercises classes is EXACTLY the kind of disciplined ‘Come on, we’re DOING this!’ energy that we all needed to feel encouraged to do our part in creating the significant changes in our bodies that we desire. I want to take all my loved ones suffering from acute physical pain there! So infinitely grateful for this healing in my life.

BARTEK 43, JAGODA 12, POLAND

Spinal Trauma

Bartek had chronic issues with his spine that would periodically necessitate him to seek medical attention. Then in 2018 it became acute after injuring it while playing on the beach with his kids. He was no longer able to stand up straight. It was at this point that he came to the clinic and worked for six weeks. During this time he was able correct the chronic problem and has not had a problem with it since. 

During his first season at the clinic, he brought his daughter Jagoda to be checked. Her feet were turning in and she was becoming more and more flat-footed and he was worried how it would affect her later in life. She has a rotation in her hip which is affecting her whole body by starting to form scoliosis and creating discomfort. She has completed her second season of treatment.

Sandra, 34, Germany

Spinal Trauma

Three years ago Sandra lifted something heavy and was unable to move. The immobility and pain went on for two weeks and was the start of debilitating periods of pain.

Sandra originally worked with the clinic in Portugal and came to Goa this season to complete the process.

FREDERIC, 57, FRANCE

SPINAL INJURY

After a serious fall when he was a small boy, Frederic was in a coma for one week. After that he became completely deaf in one ear and partially deaf in the other. Throughout his life Frederic has experienced many health problems, culminating in heart surgery four years ago. This compounded the problems in his body as post-surgery his ribs were replaced in an incorrect position. Since then, he had been unable to find any comfort due to severe and prolonged pain. His whole body had started to twist and he was experiencing double vision. Frederic’s treatment was for eight weeks.

WHAT DID FREDERIC SAY?

I had so many problems in my body and I could never imagine that it was possible for me to feel no pain and begin to enjoy life again. After the operation on my heart, things got even worse with my whole body feeling like it was twisting. Ringo worked on my body like a magician: as he did the final untwisting of my body I felt something I had never experienced before, like I was being released and my whole body became light. Immediately afterwards, my double vision was gone. I do not know what to say – ‘thank you’ does not seem enough. I am completely humbled by this experience. I will never forget what you have done for me.

CHRISTIAN, 37, AUSTRIA

Herniated discs

Christian was suffering with sciatic pain. He had herniated the disc between L5 and S1. His pain was shooting down the right leg. Christian’s treatment was completed in three weeks.

WHAT DID CHRISTIAN SAY?

I heard about the clinic from a friend and changed my flight to undertake the treatment. It was the best decision I ever made. At first, I was very enthusiastic; then certain pain persisted and I was skeptical. Finally, the pain has gone, my back feels stable and different – things do really change here! Thank you!! Much love and joy in your important work.

ANNA, 34, PORTUGAL

Herniated discs

While undertaking a 300-hour yoga teacher-training course, Anna herniated a disc in her lumbar spine. She was unable to continue her course. Anna’s treatment period was 3 weeks.

WHAT DID ANNA SAY?

I am so deeply grateful to all the team at the Bone and Body Clinic. To Ringo, thank you for the patience, care and attention given to my personalised needs. I thoroughly enjoyed my alignment experiences and leave today feeling energised, rejuvenated and ‘prettier’ – thanks to those jaw alignments! Your hands truly are a gift! To Miranda, you lead a great team and bring out the best in your staff. Thank you for your understanding and for all the laughs… stretch classes were always lots of fun. All the best.
