When the elderly who have osteoporosis or thin bone fell down and the butt bump on the floor, even not hard it can cause the bone to collapse. The spine arched up and has a severe back pain. Some hurt so bad that they do not want to get up and walk again. If the relieve type healing, like wearing the back support does not work, there is a new method of cure that can heal the collapsed spine without having to go for a the surgery. The method can inflate up the collapsed bone and concealed within not quite an hour. The elderly will have no more pain, can get up and walk again.They can resume the quality life back in no time. We call this method Kyphoplasty…the cure of the collapsed spine by a balloon technique.

1. The newly designed tool is called PCM (Pain Control Manipulator). The handle is connected to a very small tube of 2 mm diameter and 30 cm lengths at the end of the tube embedding an even smaller tube used for injection. This small tube is gradually inserted into the space at the back of the lumbar on top of the coccyx, and then slides up into the connected epidural space of the spine at the waist up to the area where the scar tissue is.
