Save your Spine – an initiative to create awareness and offer a cure by Mumbai leading hospital Nanavati.

Nanavati Hospital- spine support group session with Patients and doctorsOver the years, spinal health has emerged as one of the major concerns among millennial. With heavy sedentary lifestyles, attached with a digital-heavy existence, it has led to a spurt in back pain in young professionals. Injuries, poor postures, obesity, heavy school bags are some of the reasons for poor spinal health. Computer deserves a special mention &spine pain in a vast majority can be termed as ‘computer disease’

Back pain is a matter of concern and should not be neglected. Early diagnosis and proper treatment are recommended to avoid the risk of surgeries and to live a better life without back pain and spine problems. Mumbai’s Nanavati Institute of Spine Surgery, under the aegis of Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, has created a benchmark for successfully conducting 500 spine surgeries in the past one year.

The World Spine Day 2017 report reveals that the 16-34 age group makes up 20% of people treated for back and neck conditions in India. The age-group which is most affected by spine problems is 35-54 years.  The most common complaint faced is that of lower back pain which is usually caused by a Herniated Disc (Slipped Disc).  According to the Report, Pune accounts for the highest number of negligence at 53% followed by New Delhi (49%), Bangalore (46%) and Mumbai (40%) respectively.

At Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, under the guidance of Dr. Mihir Bapat, an awareness drive was created on how if people are aware, almost 85% of the spinal problems can be treated conservatively by physiotherapy, rehabilitation, injections, and proper ergonomic training which again a spine surgeon with a trained physiotherapist can advise.  If a pain is sustained or increasing even after treatment, it should be investigated further. Complicated cases are successfully being managed with advanced surgery.

Nanavati organized an event that gave a platform to the spine patient an opportunity to share the horrors of their diseases and the positive effect surgery has created in their lives. The Spine support group will help to break the myths of spinal issue and spine surgeries. The people suffering from spine issue can directly interact with the patient who has had a successful surgery and know the positive effects of the surgery.

Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital is a tertiary care private hospital in the country.   The 350-bedded facility is being managed by Radiant Life Care Private Limited which aims at facilitating the ongoing pursuit of excellence at the Hospital by assisting and bringing in not only the best clinical and non-clinical talent but also the ultra-modern equipment and technology enabling delivery of the highest standards of healthcare in our country.   The hospital is equipped with 55 specialty departments offering a plethora of services in practically every field of modern medicine and healthcare.
