The BEST Scoliosis Treatment in Malaysia


Scoliosis treatment and management of patients with scoliosis is urgently needed in Malaysia. Over the years, we have seen hundreds of kids presenting with scoliosis. The best scoliosis treatment in Malaysia incorporates methods and systems that improve function and brings about stability in the spine. To date, the only method that has accomplished this in Malaysia is NSD Therapy. Scoliosis treatments through NSD Therapy protocols can improve and even reverse a curve. Learn more about scoliosis treatment trough NSD Therapy now.

Most received little to no treatment for their condition. Scoliosis treatment in Malaysia is by and large ineffective. The vast majority of centers that provide care lack knowledge, skills, and specialized non-surgical technology. So, therapy and treatment rendered in many of the physiotherapy or chiropractic centers have had a little impact. We have dedicated this page of Chloroacetic-in-Malaysia to scoliosis. We do so in an attempt to bring better awareness to proper care. And to shine a light on centers and methods that have little to no clinical value.

Before we get started with scoliosis treatment in Malaysia, it might be helpful to shed some light on bracing. Today, there are centers to promote and sell expensive bracing methods. Some even offer beautifully prepare graphics and relate their product to European or American markets. The one thing that all researchers are now comparing to is that bracing is an absolute waste of time! In other words, bracing is only beneficial to brace manufacturers and clinics that sell them. Your child, sibling, sister or brother will not benefit from them at all. In fact, it may be worsening their condition as bracing is now linked to muscle weakness. So, Chiropractic-in-Malaysia stands on bracing is that they are all garbage dished out by the profiteers. Don't fall victim to this people. Seek proper care through means of physiotherapy, chiropractic and specialized technology. The most efficient and best scoliosis treatment in Malaysia is NSD Therapy. It is just that simple.


Scoliosis is a deviation or distortion of the spine in all three dimensions. The deformity includes bending of the spine to the left or right, increased forward or backward curvature and rotation of the spine. Scoliosis may be due to a known cause such as neuromuscular disorders (e.g. neurofibromatosis or poliomyelitis), congenital bony anomalies and developmental disorders. Regardless of the reason, appropriate care through appropriate clinical means is needed to stop progression.

However, the majority of the scoliotic cases are idiopathic scoliosis with no known cause. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is one of the most common diagnoses among children and young adults with lateral spinal curvature. Females with a family history of scoliosis who have reached menarche, and are going through a growth spurt have the highest risk of progression. It is important to monitor the posture of children and check for scoliosis so that it can be detected in the early stages. Treatments for Scoliosis are to prevent further deterioration of the curvature and for pain management.

How to check children for scoliosis?

Observe your kids from behind to look for evidence of scoliosis. Observe for any obvious asymmetry of hip or shoulder height. Look for winging of the scapula or sideways tilting of the head. Perform Adam’s test in a forward bending position and look for a rib hump or a mid-back prominence on one side of the body.


Scoliosis curvature can be evaluated and monitored with X-rays using Cobb’s angle. Progression should be checked with x-rays every 3-6 months unless there are signs of rapid deterioration. Treatments for Scoliosis patients should be maintained until complete bone maturation. This can be measured using Risser’s sign seen on X-rays.

We hope you found this article helpful, please call us if you have any questions about scoliosis treatment in Malaysia.

Building of Stronger Core Muscles

Core muscles are key in keeping your spine stable and free of pain. The better and stronger your cores are the less likely is your chance of getting back pain or hurting your spine. Strong core muscles are needed to proper function. The need for stability is even greater in those in pain. If you have back pain, you will need to build better core muscles. However, most back pain sufferers injure their spine when doing core strengthening. The key to avoiding injury and pain is proper core strengthening techniques and methods. And as such, we encourage all visitors to Chiropractic-in-Malaysia blog to visit one of our chiropractors or clinical physiotherapists in Malaysia, before embarking on a core strengthening program.

People with poor core muscle strength and excessive abdominal circumference often present with excessive forward arching of the lower back and forward tilting of the pelvis. Dysfunctional movement patterns due to excessive lumbar lordosis will result in pain or discomfort in the hips, buttocks, lower back or groin region. This common postural manifestation can lead to lumbar disc degeneration or herniation, hip joint disorders, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

Distribution of the body weight will be different in a lumbar spine with exaggerated lordosis. The body weight is transferred from the strong, broad, supportive vertebral bodies and discs to the more delicate lumbar facet joints.  Space, where the spinal nerves travel through, will be compromised as the curvature in the lower back increases. This will cause increased irritation and pressure on the spinal nerves in the lower back and may lead to pain or numbness in the lower back and the lower extremities.

Individual with excessive lordosis in the lower back usually present with protruding belly and buttocks, over-extended knees, flat feet, and protruding concavity of the lower back. The weakness of the pelvic, abdominal and hamstring muscles may cause forward tilting of the pelvis. Excessive tightness of the hip flexors and lower back muscles may contribute to the excessive lordosis curvature.

Treatment for excessive lumbar lordosis usually includes stretching and lengthening of the shortened, tight muscles that are causing anterior pelvic tilt such as the hip flexors. Strengthening of the muscles that create posterior tilt of the pelvis such as abdominal muscles. Restoring the proper position and alignment of the pelvis and lumbar spine to maintain stability and mobility of the lower back.

Fixing Poor or Bad Posture in Malaysia

Fixing Poor or Bad Posture in Malaysia is easy if you know where to get the best treatment. Before seeking care, you need to thoroughly investigate treatment facilities and centers around you. Most treatment centers offer limited therapy options. The vast majority of which are not holistic. In other words, for your to recover, you will need every aspect of your posture assessed by a proficient clinical team.

Physiotherapy and Chiropractic are common avenues of therapy for most, but the vast majority of centers that offer physiotherapy or chiropractic in Malaysia lack a complete understanding of posture and biomechanical deficiencies that lead to a bad posture. Chiropractic Specialty Centers have specific protocols for assessments and treatment of those with poor postures. Our clinical teams go through the intensive training session. We are the best clinical teams in physiotherapy and chiropractic in Malaysia. If you or your loved one suffers from poor posture, we can help. In this section, we will further look into what posture is and how it impacts you. Should you have any questions or centers, please call our main center at 03 2093 1000.


Bad posture and muscle imbalances can be the cause of neck and shoulder problems or vice versa. Muscle imbalances could be due to repetitive movements, prolonged stressful postures, and effects of gravity. Muscle imbalances occur when some muscles become short and tight while some muscles become inhibited and weak. Upper Crossed Syndrome or Proximal Crossed Syndrome in the upper body is one of the examples for muscle imbalances. People with Proximal Crossed Syndrome usually present with forwarding head posture, rounded shoulders and inwards rotated arms. Winging of the scapulae may be found with this musculoskeletal postural disorder.

Forward head carriage and rounded shoulder progressively weaken deep neck flexors in the front of the neck and scapular stabilizing muscles in the upper back. Tightening of the anterior chest muscles, upper back muscles and posterior neck muscles occurs. Muscle imbalances often result in faulty movements such as a scapular shrug, scapular winging and head protraction. Poor neck and shoulder joint alignment can lead to rotator cuff impingement tendonitis, neck pain, and headache. Chronic hunching of the upper back can inhibit deep inhalation.

Prolonged computer or desk work and driving should be avoided. Standing and stretching for a few minutes every half an hour prevents sustained misalignment and relaxes tight muscles. Sitting on a gym ball improves erect posture and decreases the stress in the lower back.  

Stretching of the tight anterior chest muscles or pectoralis muscles alleviates the discomfort. Stand facing a wall corner in a “surrender position” with both arms and elbows at 90-degree angle. Rest both palms against the wall and lean into the wall until a gentle stretch is felt in the chest muscles. Hold the stretch for 30 to 60 seconds. Change the angle of the arm to 120 degrees and repeat the procedures above.

The Best Foot Drop Treatment in Malaysia


Foot drop is a condition related to a neglected spine disorder or a sudden injury that damages the nerve in your foot. Urgent assessment and proper treatment is a must for quick and timely recovery. In this section our Chiropractic-in-Malaysia blog we will discuss root causes and best foot drop treatment options in Malaysia. 

Foot drop, weakness of the muscles in the front of the leg that lifts the foot, causes a high-stepping gait. People with foot drop tends to lift the leg to prevent the foot from dragging on the floor. There may be accompanying numbness or pain in the affected foot and leg. Foot drop is a symptom of underlying neuromuscular problems, it can be temporary or permanent. 

Injury or irritation to the nerve that supplies the muscles involved in foot lifting can result in foot drop. Herniated disc (slipped disc), spinal stenosis and sciatica are the most common causes of foot drop. Patients with slipped disc often complain of a sciatica-like pain. If the condition is not treated properly, it may lead to spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis place an enormous amount of stress on spinal cord and spinal nerves. Prolonged stresses (impingement of spinal nerve or spinal cord) will always lead to damages within the neuronal tissue. As the damages accumulate, it leads to weakness and eventual loss of function. So, visit or call one of our centers and get the best non-surgical treatment for slipped disc through clinical chiropractic in Malaysia today.

Direct external pressure is the most common cause of injury to the nerve. Habitual leg crossing, prolonged kneeling or squatting and prolonged use of a knee brace or plaster cast below the knee can irritate the nerve and cause foot drop. Ankle sprain or prolonged leg stretching may overstretch the nerve and the presence of Baker’s cysts at the back of the knee may cause compression on the nerve. Spinal nerve root damage due to disc herniations or other space occupying lesions can cause weakness in the muscles. People with diabetes or vitamin B12 deficiency are more susceptible to nerve injury. Less often, disorders in the brain or spinal cord such as stroke can cause foot drop.

People with foot drop have increased risk of stumbling and falling, there are a few lifestyle changes that can prevent fall and injury.
  •          Keep all walkways and stairways well lit
  •          Avoid using throw rugs
  •          Make sure all walkways are clear of clutter
  •          Wear flat shoes to prevent ankle sprain and support the ankles
  •          Use an ankle foot orthosis while walking to support the foot
  •          Avoid prolonged leg crossing, kneeling or squatting
  •          Specific strengthening exercises for weak muscles in the leg and foot

Trigeminal Neuralgia Treatment in Malaysia

Trigeminal Neuralgia is exceeding common in Malaysia. Treatments offered fare often flawed and most just suffer needlessly.  The good new we can share is that our clinical Physiotherapy and Chiropractic in Malaysia can help even with Trigeminal Neuralgia conditions that others failed to get better. 

If you are over the age of 50 years and you have sharp, shooting, lancinating pain in your face or head, you might be suffering from trigeminal neuralgia. Trigeminal nerve carries sensory information from the forehead, temporal region, cheek, mandible, mouth, and jaw. Attacks of pain usually last from a fraction of second up to 2 minutes. The pain can be triggered by any factors that are irritating or stimulating the nerve, such as light touch over the affected area or chewing food.

There are two types of trigeminal neuralgia: classical and symptomatic. Classical trigeminal neuralgia is attacks of pain without neurological loss and lack of underlying cause. Symptomatic trigeminal neuralgia causes the neurological deficit, and there is an identified underlying lesion.
The nerve fibers of upper cervical segments and the trigeminal nerve converge and terminate on second order neurons in the trigemino-cervical nucleus within the upper cervical spinal cord. As a result of this convergence mechanism, irritation of structures innervated by upper cervical segments can cause pain felt in areas innervated by the trigeminal nerve, and vice versa. Central sensitization of the nerves in the spinal cord will lower the pain threshold and will lead to many associated head and neck pain syndromes.


Individuals with face, neck and head pain may have multiple sources of pain. Trigeminal nerve, cervical spine and musculature, temporomandibular joint and different types of headaches may be contributing to the pain. Therefore, a detailed treatment plan that addresses the contributing sources of pain should be able to alleviate the symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia. However, it should be noted that it is unlikely to completely resolve trigeminal neuralgia. 


The best advice we can give you is to visit one of our Chiropractic centers in Malaysia today. Our clinical teams of physiotherapists and chiropractors will need to assess your jaw (for TMJ and Jaw Pain Treatment), neck (to evaluate for Cervical Spondylosis), upper back to identify the root-cause. Once we have identified the root cause, treatments began. Our Trigeminal Neuralgia treatment in Malaysia is through non-invasive holistic methods of physiotherapy and chiropractic in Malaysia: visit us or call our main center at 03 2093 1000 for center and services.

Painful arc of the shoulder – Impingement Syndrome


Our last article generated a lot of feedback, and we wanted to provide our reader with a better understanding of what happens when they have shoulder pain. Impingement Syndrome is an all too typical of a shoulder dysfunction. Our clinical teams are well aware of the pitfall of poor therapy or patient management. Therefore, when you get your shoulder pain treatment through our physiotherapy or chiropractic in Malaysia, you can rest assured that the care you get is of the best clinical teams in town. 

The glenohumeral joint is a relatively unstable ball-and-socket joint as the glenoid cavity is a shallow cavity. Static stabilizers of the joint include glenohumeral ligaments, glenoid labrum and capsule. Rotator cuff and scapular stabilizing muscles are the primary dynamic stabilizers of the shoulder. The impingement of rotator cuff tendons usually happen as they pass through the subacromial space formed between the acromion above and the glenohumeral joint below. Abnormalities of the structures around this region that compromise the subacromial space would cause irritation and damage to the tendons.

The acromion may be beaked, curved or hooked in shape due to a congenital abnormality or osteophyte formation. This may irritate the tendon from above due to the close proximity of both structures. Weakness of the scapular stabilizing muscles such as serratus anterior and excessive tightness of the pectoralis muscle would cause excessive angulation of the acromion. The acromion would move forward and downward into subacromial space. Muscle imbalance between humeral head elevators (deltoid) and stabilizers (rotator cuff muscles) results in excessive upward movement of the humeral head. This would further damage the tendons as the humeral head pushes them up against the undersurface of the acromion.

Swimmers and athletes with overhead activities such as throwing and overhead shots in racquet sports are prone to shoulder pain due to repetitive trauma to the rotator cuff. A painful arch of the shoulder while lifting up the arm at the side of the body between 70 degree and 120 degree is commonly seen. Difficulty combing the hair and reaching behind the back are common with impingement syndrome. The front and side of the shoulder may be painful upon palpation.

Frozen Shoulder Treatments in Malaysia


Frozen shoulder (Shoulder Pain) is an all too common condition in Malaysia. Most centers lack the methods, systems and even technology needed to accurately assess and treat a frozen shoulder in Malaysia. Frozen shoulder treatment in Malaysia by our clinical teams incorporates the best of physiotherapy and clinical chiropractic in Malaysia. If you have a frozen shoulder, you need our team today. We can help you even if others have failed. In the coming paragraphs, we will discuss the shoulder joint, its' soft tissues. We do this in an attempt to improve your understanding of what has happened to you. Please contact one of our centers if you need more information.  

The shoulder is a ball and socket joint that connects the arm to the body. It is a unique joint as it provides a great degree of mobility; however, there is a lack of stability at the extreme of certain positions (especially overextended in an overhead position). Therefore, shoulder injury usually occurs at the end range of motion as a result of excessive demands on the muscles, ligaments, and capsule of the shoulder. Integrated function of soft tissue structures such as muscles, ligaments, and capsule around the shoulder is needed to provide stability of the joint. Damage to any of these soft tissue structures would compromise the integrated muscular function. Shoulder pain is often due to trauma, overuse, referred pain from the cervical or thoracic spine, trigger points in muscles, or radicular pain from spinal nerve compression. Shoulder complaints are common in sports or occupations requiring repetitive shoulder movements such as swimming, throwing, and overhead work.

Common traumatic and overuse injury patterns for the shoulder include:
  •         Direct blow to the front of the shoulder
  •          Fall on top or side of shoulder
  •          Fall on an outstretched arm
  •          Arm being forced backward in the overhead position
  •          Sudden traction to the arm
  •          Sudden pain with heavy lifting
  •          Throwing a ball, baseball pitching
  •          Striking a volleyball
  •          Instability of the shoulder
  •          History of shoulder dislocation


Sudden shoulder pain without a traumatic injury that lasts for weeks and has resolved into stiffness and restricted range of motion in the shoulder is usually known as frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis. Irritation of cervical nerve roots in the neck, brachial plexus, and peripheral nerves may also cause pain and weakness in the shoulder. 

Our clinical methods of physiotherapy and chiropractic in Malaysia has provided relief for thousands of shoulder pain sufferers, please contact our main center at 03-2093 1000 for information about our centers and services today.
