X-rays & RBT (Rope & Belt Therapy)

Using Rope & Belts for Theraputic Application was pioneered by Iyengar Guruji in Pune - India way back in 1970

His disciple Dr. S. V. Karandikar further developed it for OA - Knee & Spondylosis of Cervical & Lumbar Spine which is used extensively since 1980 onwards.

RBT is adviced after clinical & radiological diagnosis of OA Knee joint & Cervical & Lumbar Spondylosis.In addition to diagnosis,it also gives us an idea about severity of the condition.This helps us to decide the duration of RBT at Therapy Center

We use Kellgren- Lawrence radio graphic grading.

Duration of RBT adviced at our Center is as follows.

  • Grade 1- One month
  • Grade 2- Two months
  • Grade 3- Three months

In addition to RBT, patients are taught selective modified Yogic Postures & Ambulatory Belts.( which are to be used in day to day life)

We use Kellgren & Laurence grading for Osteoarthritis Of Knee Joint.

Following are the X-rays of Grade -3 OA Knee joint of patients.
