How Roller Coaster Can Help You To Fix Kidney Stones | Read Here

Kidney stones are really painful and you would never ever want to think about them. Spending a lot of money on the treatment of kidney stones can only make you worry more. These tiny painful stones deposits in the kidney and harms both your wallet and urethra. But other than this, there’s a cool treatment option found which is pretty well and much exciting. 

A Urological surgeon, David Wartinger noticed an unusual trend among his patients suffering from kidney stones. He noticed a slight change before and after their vacations to amusement parks. 

The check of Kidney stones was strongly checked on one of his patients, when he took a ride on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. He rides on a roller coaster, after every ride his kidney stones were checked.

Doctors said – 

“That was just too powerful to ignore,”.“I’d been hearing these anecdotal stories for a couple years, and then I thought, okay, there’s really something here.”

Although he got a hint about the connection between the roller coaster and kidney stones, he himself decided to look deeper into it. 

Wartinger created a replica of 3-for-3 patient’s kidney using a silicone. Then he filled the stones and diluted urine (his own). 

He told –

“I spent my life playing in pee. I don’t have that aversion to urine that most people have. The reason I didn’t use water is it would’ve put another variable in there that wasn’t real. So I used real urine … to avoid criticism.”

He himself went for the ride, and held the bag pack on a ride to note that whether or not if the stone, changed its position from its starting point to the exit point. 

After a few rides he noted that - 

“It became obvious that there was a huge difference in passage rates whether you sat in the front or the rear of the coaster,” There was a lot more whipping around in that rear car.”

After 50-60 rides it was noted that the stones were passed 63.89% of the time when the kidney bag was in the back of the roller coaster, while it was around 16.67% when seated in the front. 

He then published this fact in the journal – 

"Preliminary study findings support the anecdotal evidence that a ride on a moderate-intensity roller coaster could benefit some patients with small kidney stones.”
