INTRODUCTION
Spondylosis is a condition that affects the vertebral bones of the spinal column characterized by the formation
of osteophytes or bony spurs along the edges of the vertebra body. TDP lamp emits a band of electromagnetic waves that are absorbed by the body through selective absorption. These absorbed electromagnetic waves
help in generating various beneficial biochemical stimuli that the body lacks and accelerating decomposition of unstable structures such as dead cells Due to the cost and invasiveness of surgical approach TCVM approach was preferred in this case.
OBJECTIVES
To evaluate the effectiveness of ‘Special Electromagnetic Health lamp’ (TDP Lamp) and TCVM treatment for Tanhuan syndrome.
METHODS
A 5 years old female Pekingese cross Shih Tzu was presented and X-ray revealed spondylosis at C2-C3 and T13-L1. MRI detected compression of C2-C3 on the right side while there is compression of the T13-L1 on the ventral side. The dog was completely paralyzed with the diagnosis of Tanhuan in TCVM. The dog was then treated with the combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, B12 tablet and TDP Lamp.
