Preloading Intial Pages From Dataprovider

Background info: I am building a page with a list of questions that people have asked. I use the official jQuery infinite ajax scroll plugin to load more topics when you scroll down. When you click on a question to answer and then click back, I want the page to load to the same position in the list where the user initially was. Upon clicking the back button, the controller knows what page the user was previously on using GET. All I need to do now is use the data provider to load those pages and then render in the view.

Question: How can I render the initial number of pages from a dataprovider without using pagination?

Thank you,
