Our team of scientists, university researchers, and collaborators can honestly say that KKT offers the most technologically-advanced and effective solution to sufferers of spinal problems and years of pain and discomfort.

We see this highly developed technology as a starting point… not a finish line. We will continue to invest in research and funding to advance our cause to make KKT the preferred choice of back pain sufferers worldwide.

Ageing and Degeneration. Are they Synonymous?

(Most Related to Spinal Degeneration & Disc Disease)

Ageing should include only those changes which occur inevitably and which are predominantly biochemical in nature, controlled by genes related to the process of ageing.

Whereas, Degeneration implies a degradation of a structure (like Knee, Spine, etc.) and is secondary to multiple causes.

In Clinical Practice, it is of prime importance to clearly detect the signs of tissue damage, whether they are related to aging or degeneration. This differentiation allows the clinician making the decision between “Treatment” or “No Treatment”. There is a great deal of confusion among clinicians as well as the patients in defining this delicate border. It is true that aging cannot be reversed or stopped, but the degeneration can be arrested to progress further and even by creating favorable environment, it can be reversed to varying extent.

Adam’s et al. (1996) Journal of bone Joint & Surgery concluded that structural disruption prevents a disc from equalizing the load on the vertebrae and a region of very high and low stresses are created. The Disc mechanical function is affected more by structural disruption than the biomechanical changes of ageing. These degenerative changes in the disc are associated with back ache. While disc dehydration secondary to ageing will appear on MRI as “Dark Disc” which is usually not painful. However, the most severe degenerative changes can sometimes be observed in people who have no back pain.

As to successfully treat the back pain & disc disease which is usually associated, we must know the cause of Disc degeneration. Management directed towards the detection and removal of cause should be promising in successfully treating the back pain. It is a common observation, that following several years of vertebral fracture adjacent discs shows the signs of Disc Degeneration. Disc opposed to the high pressure cause production of Matrix degradation enzymes, which results in impaired disc cell metabolism and degeneration is the result as described by Handa et al. (1996). Disc degeneration is associated with smoking as stated by Batteie et al. (1991).

Role of Biomechanical Stresses on production of spinal disorders has long been appreciated by many investigators. “Mean Axis Rotation” is demonstrated by Desmoulin et al. (2011) to affect patients suffering from back & neck pain in about 70% of cases which results in spinal asymmetry.

Flexion and Rotation also induce high loads on the lower motion segments explaining why disc affects lower lumbar regularly in the majority of cases. Kelsey et al. (1999) in a study found that those who were regularly subjected to this type of loading were six times more liable to be admitted to hospital because of prolapsed inter vertebral disc than those who were not.

Segmental Instability is another mechanical factor which is important clinically but poorly defined and understood. It seems that advice based on knowledge especially the biomechanical knowledge is superior to any type of treatment as described by Nachemson (1985).

KKT is the first ever treatment of spinal conditions including Degeneration, intervertebral disc which is utilizing scientific approach in diagnosis and management of spinal asymmetry and correction of this biomechanical abnormality ensures free communication from brain to body and back from body to brain. This mechanism provides the most natural way of not only controlling progression of spinal degeneration & spinal disc disease but it also reverses the previously known unstoppable, debilitated spinal conditions.
