What is cervical PIVD?

Cervical PIVD stands for cervical prolapsed intervertebral disc. It refers to a medical condition that affects the cervical spine, which is the portion of the spine located in the neck. In this condition, one of the intervertebral discs in the cervical spine becomes damaged or displaced.

Intervertebral discs are soft, gel-like cushions that sit between the vertebrae (the bones of the spine) and act as shock absorbers, allowing for movement and flexibility in the spine. When a disc in the cervical spine prolapses, it means that some of the inner disc material pushes out or herniates through the tough outer layer of the disc.

Cervical PIVD can result in a variety of symptoms, which may include:

1. Neck pain: Patients may experience pain in the neck, often localized to the area where the affected disc is located.

2. Radicular pain: This is pain that radiates down the arm or into the shoulder or upper back. It is often caused by compression or irritation of the spinal nerves due to the herniated disc material.

3. Numbness and tingling: Patients may feel numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, or fingers as a result of nerve compression.

4. Weakness: Muscular weakness can occur, especially in the muscles supplied by the affected nerves.

5. Changes in reflexes: Reflexes may be altered in the affected arm or hand.

What is subarna therapy approach?

Subarna therapy approach is a new technique to treat cervical PIVD. The subarna therapy approach technique for cervical PIVD was developed by Subarna Debbarma, a physiotherapist from Tripura, India, in 2023.

Research on the subarna therapy approaches

Research had been conducted by Subarna Debbarma over the last two years, from 2021 to 2023,In his own clinic at "Spine Clinic Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Unit, Agartala,India".

Sample Collection 

Group A -10 patients: neck pain with localized radiation pain, 

Group B -10 patients: Chronic neck pain with numbness and tingling sensation in upper arm and fingers.

Group C - 7 patients: Chronic neck pain with vertigo.

Treatment Methods And Results Of The Subarna Therapy Approach

A combination therapy - manipulation, traction, IFT, or faradic stimulation with home exercise.

Duration: Daily therapy session for 15 days

Result: Group A patients feedback: 90% reduced in pain within 10 days.

Group B patients  feedback 90% reduction in pain, numbness, and radiation pain within 15 days.

Group C patients: 100% patients feedback reduced pain and vertigo.

In Conclusions 

Further research and practice of the subarna therapy approach will be needed in the future with a high volume of patients; to date, the subarna therapy approach for cervical PIVD has shown good results.
