A team headed by Dr Pradeep Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher, Navi Mumbai successfully helped a 55-year-old woman from Nagpur to walk freely without pain with the help of cell-based therapy and physiotherapy rehabilitation. The patient who was diagnosed with neuropathy with axonal degeneration has resumed her daily routine now.

Kanchan Tahilramani, a housewife from Nagpur was jolted out of her daily routine owing to a sudden onset of leg pain when she was 38-years-old and had difficulty moving her legs. Her health kept worsening over years and she found difficulty in walking when she turned 47. She consulted various medicos but failed to find any appropriate solution for her problem. She couldn’t do her daily chores with ease, required assistance from her family members and couldn’t walk on uneven surfaces, and had numbness in her feet. For the last 9 years, her grip is weak and she cannot hold things, there is swelling in both feet and altered sensations in the leg. Her family ran from pillar to post to help her get back on her feet but still, her condition didn’t improve. However, the patient was referred to Mahajan who helped her move freely.

Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher, Navi Mumbai/Mumbai said, “On arrival, Kanchan was having weakness in her grip, muscle loss of palms, Weakness during walking, a hyperextension of both knees, imbalance during walking needs support, the tendency to fall etc. Few tests were performed that revealed the patient had neuropathy. Neuropathy is the damage of one or more nerves causing numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, and pain in the hands and feet. Delaying treatment would have further affected her ability to walk and she could have lost the ability to do her daily activities independently”

Mahajan added, “She was advised physiotherapy rehabilitation including strengthening exercises and stretching exercises. Improvement in ease of walking was noticed in the patient within 10-15 days of the treatment. Improvement in grip strength and sensations was noticed after a month with regular physiotherapy/exercises, as advised. The patient continues to show improvement. No special precautions only continued rehabilitation and periodic follow up were advised.

“I was appalled and failed to understand the reason behind the sudden onset of leg pain. My leg was numb with no sensation and that would bother me. I am back on track after 17 years after the treatment and physiotherapy, the leg pain, swelling, inflammation, numbness, and tingling sensation disappeared,” concluded the patient.
