KKT Spine Treatment and its technology has been published in a variety of leading scientific journals including:

  • Spine
  • The American Journal of Pain Management
  • Global Spine Journal

KKT was invited to speak and present at numerous events including the World Forum for Spine Research in Helsinki Finland (2012). They were also invited to and attended the very first International Orthopedic Conference in China. We were also invited to present at the very first International Orthopedic Conference in China. We recently were invited to speak at the International Surgery and Orthopedic Conference in Canada (2017).

KKT has collaborated with or received funding from leading Canadian Research and Development institutions:

  • National Research Council of Canada

DISC STRAIN AND RESULTING mRNA EXPRESSION FROM APPLICATION OF A NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT

In this study, the intervertebral discs were studied and given, specific, non-invasive vibrations at varying frequencies and amplitudes to determine their therapeutic effect on expression of mRNA of the disc proteins Aggrecan, Versican, Decorin, Collagen Type I and II as well as Biglycan.

Results show significant upregulation of the genes for Aggrecan, Versican and CollagenType I.

A healthy disc has a high content of Aggrecan, Collagen Type I and Versican in the nucleus pulposus (the jelly-like cushion between the vertebrae).  Therefore, increasing these proteins through stimulating the specific genes with KKT would be expected to correlate with tissue restoration or repair.

Back and neck pain intervention based on the application of specific amplitudes and frequencies is no longer a pipedream. Through KKT, patients suffering from degenerative disc disease and disc related pain need not suffer unnecessarily. KKT is cleared for use by the FDA, Health Canada and European Commission.

SPINAL INTERVENTION EFFICACY ON CORRECTING CERVICAL VERTEBRAL AXES OF ROTATION AND THE RESULTING IMPROVEMENTS IN PAIN, DISABILITY AND PSYCHOSOCIAL MEASURES

This is a single blinded, sham controlled study designed to assess the biomechanical effects of KKT. The primary outcome of the study is to measure correction of the  Mean Axes of Rotation (MAR), a surrogate marker for biomechanical stability of the cervical spine, before and after application of the KKT Treatment over a 6 month period.

The following secondary outcomes are also measured to correlate changes in MAR to clinical improvement:

  • Neck Pain Scores
  • Neck Disability Index ( NDI )
  • Psycho-Social Assessment

The results show that KKT corrects a majority of abnormal MARs, with a subsequent improvement in all secondary outcomes, such as neck pain scores, NDI, and psycho-social assessment. Therefore, KKT does improve the biomechanics of the spine with an associated positive clinical impact.

INITIAL RESULTS USING KHAN KINETIC TREATMENT AS A LOW BACK PAIN TREATMENT OPTION 

In this study, 48 subjects self-reported on their functional assessment, completed a questionnaire on their lumbo-pelvic pain and pain medication dose which were used to measure outcomes.

Compared to a control group, the treatment group lowered self reported LBP and showed stronger positive trend to lower their pain medication dose.

When compared to control group, initial results suggest that KKT may be an effective means of treating LBP.
