After his cancer radiation sessions, Nirmal Bhartiya started experiencing severe back pain in 2014-15. That is when, after many visits to several doctors, someone referred him to a chiropractor based in Delhi’s Nizamuddin East. “Within two weeks, my back pain was almost gone,” said Bhartiya, 65, a businessman. The first session lasted about 10-15 minutes, and he could feel the difference. He has now taken it upon himself to refer patients with chronic issues that need spinal adjustments to Dr Shiv Bajaj.
“Ninety per cent of orthopaedic condition should be treated conservatively; rarely you need surgeries. Surgeries should only be restricted to tumours, fractures and the like. It should not happen on the basis of back and neck pain,” said Dr Bajaj. While surgery has become commonplace in today’s medical field, chiropractic treatment administered at the right time by a licensed and trained chiropractic professional can prevent medications and surgical interventions, and is the “missing link” between physiotherapy and orthopaedics in India, Dr Bajaj, who has been practising for 11 years, said.
