Chiropractic in Malaysia is relatively new. The Malaysian Ministry of Health governs the practice of chiropractic in Malaysia. Chiropractors in Malaysia need to have a degree from an accredited chiropractic university.

IMU is the only university in Malaysia offering degrees in chiropractic. Chiropractic is a safe, natural alternative for the spine and joints.

Chiropractors in Malaysia often practice in integrative settings. Integrative methods of chiropractic care combined with physiotherapy have proven effective for patients with neck pain, back pain, slipped discs, sciatica, knee, shoulder, and joint conditions. Chiropractic Specialty Center® is one of the first chiropractic centers offering physiotherapy combined with chiropractic in Malaysia. 

Children and young people in Malaysia suffer from hip and spine deformities. Some common spinal deformities in Malaysia include scoliosis (curvature of the spine), a short leg, or flat feet. For many in Malaysia, these problems go undiagnosed or untreated. The practice of chiropractic in Malaysia is the best alternative to adults and kids with spine and joint conditions as well as conditions resulting from deformities such as scoliosis and flat feet. 

What is Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractic is a natural healthcare practice with an emphasis on proper neuromusculoskeletal health and wellbeing. Chiropractic is a degree program offered by accredited universities that fulfils the educational requirement a doctor of chiropractic needs. It is important to note that chiropractors are not medical doctors. They do not hold an MBBS or MD degree. The degree for chiropractic is DC (doctor of chiropractic). In short, chiropractors are doctors of chiropractic who provide essential treatments as an alternative to spine and joint injections and surgery.

Chiropractic is a holistic natural and alternative method of care given by chiropractors for the spine, joints, and sports injuries. Chiropractic treatment includes the manipulation of soft tissues (muscles and tendons) and joints. Spine and joint manipulation or realignments by a chiropractor are called chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments or realignment is what chiropractors are best known for. However, today's chiropractors do a lot more than realign your bones.

Chiropractors treat muscles, ligaments, tendons, spinal discs, nerves, and nervous systems through a combination of physiotherapy, rehabilitation, lifestyle modification, exercises, stretching, and nutrition combined with chiropractic. In essence, chiropractic is the best of comprehensive treatment programs for the spine and joints.

Neck Pain Treatment Through Chiropractic In Malaysia

Neck pain is all too common. It impacts kids, teenagers, and adults and no one is immune. Excessive use of handheld smart devices such as mobile phones, tablets, or game consoles are the leading causes of neck pain in kids and adults. Prolonged use of computers (laptops and desktops) is the leading cause of neck pain in adults and office workers.

Neck pain treatment through chiropractic in Malaysia is a safe natural alternative that focuses on the correction of the root causes of neck pain. Chiropractic neck treatment in Malaysia differs to care given by non-chiropractors. Chiropractic manipulation is evidence-based, focused, and precise. It is highly targeted and much safer than manipulation or realignments given by bonesetters or physiotherapists.

Back Pain And Chiropractic In Malaysia

Back pain is the most common health problem in Malaysia. It is also the leading cause of disability in the world for individuals under 45. Back pain can result from muscles, ligaments, spinal discs, and spinal joints. Spinal muscles help keep us in an upright posture and aid with movements. Repetitive movements, poor posture, and weak muscles are common causes of muscular back pains.

Back pain caused by tight muscles (spasms) is the simplest type of back pain. If neglected, it can lead to ligament issues. The muscular and ligamentous forms of back pain are the easiest and simplest forms of back problems. Back pain patients with muscle and ligament problems need to get their muscles and ligaments repaired and strengthened as soon as issues arise. Neglecting back pain caused by muscles leads to ligament issues, and ligament issues lead to joint and spinal disc problems such as a slipped disc. So, heed the warning and fix all causes of back pain at the earliest to avoid worsening or complications. Back pain treatment through chiropractic in Malaysia is the safest and holistic method of recovering from all types of back pain, including those caused by sciatica, spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, and slipped discs.

Slipped Disc Treatment Through Chiropractic Care

Slipped disc is a layperson term for bulged, herniated, protruded, prolapsed, extruded, and fragmented spinal discs. A slipped disc is a serious condition needing immediate treatment to fix and repair damaged tissues. Slipped disc patients will have problems with their muscles, ligaments, joints, spinal discs, and spinal nerves. A slipped disc is a multi-faceted health issue that presents with multiple co-conditions simultaneously. 

Slipped discs can occur at any segment. They are most common in the neck and lower back. The most common involved segment in the neck is the C4-C5, C5-C6, or the C6-C7. The C5-C6 is the most common segment where discs bulge, herniate, or rupture through causing spinal cord and spinal nerve compression. Slipped discs in the lower back are most common at L3-L4, L4-L5, or the L5-S1. The L4-L5 is the most common segment for a slipped disc in the back.

Symptoms of slipped disc depend on severity. Often they present as back or neck pain. However, there are instances where patients have slipped discs in the neck and back without neck or back pain. Having no back or neck pain in the presence of a slipped disc or slip disc is relatively common. A slipped disc's most common and worrying symptoms are pain that shoots down the arms (from a neck slipped disc) or legs (slip discs in the lower back). In addition to extremity pain, patients may also experience numbness, tingling, or weakness. In severe cases, paralysis, organ malfunction (problems with bowels, bladder, and reproductive organs) may develop.

To recover, you need specialized methods of physiotherapy combined with chiropractic in Malaysia. Chiropractic Specialty Center® provides the most holistic non-invasive treatment for slip-discs in Malaysia.

Scoliosis Treatment By Chiropractors In Malaysia

Scoliosis is an abnormal congenital or developmental condition of the spine where the spine bends and twists unnaturally. Scoliosis is more common in girls and can be present at birth. However, in most cases, scoliosis developed during the juvenile years between 6-9. Progression is most dramatic during puberty. Adolescent scoliosis (aged 9-17) is the most common type of scoliosis. Adult scoliosis is also relatively common in Malaysia. Adult scoliosis is often in patients with adolescent scoliosis. However, there are instances of adult scoliosis that developed after 50. Adults who developed scoliosis during their middle ages suffer from a degenerative or developmental form of scoliosis. Scoliosis is a condition that progressively worsens throughout life. As such, specialized and focused treatment given by evidence-based chiropractors in Malaysia can help slow progression and even reverse or improve the scoliotic curve.

Neck And Back Pain Sufferers Do Not Have To Feel Guilty!

You are not alone! Every year, at least 17 million people in the USA suffer from back pain alone. In the UK that number is about 100,000 back pain patients annually. Some may be prescribed medication to help ease the pain, while others may use chiropractic or physiotherapy.

Neck pain and back pain are physical issues resulting from a mechanical malfunction in muscles, ligaments, joints, or spinal discs. Mechanical physical conditions that cause symptoms in the neck and back are best treated without mechanical solutions that help repair the damaged tissues. In our opinion, the best and most effective form of neck and back pain treatment is a combination of physiotherapy with chiropractic in Malaysia.

Neck pain and back pain are common conditions, and quite often people are bewildered by how to properly treat them. They wonder whether they need care from polyclinics, hospitals, chiropractors, or physiotherapists. Polyclinics treat neck and back pain with medication and painkillers. Most will also provide you with some basic neck and back exercises and advice on how to get over back pain. Hospitals and orthopaedic surgeons treat neck and back pain through physiotherapy, medication, injections, and in some instances surgery. Chiropractors and physiotherapists treat neck and back pain through spinal manipulation, exercises, stretching, lifestyle changes, and physiotherapy.

How To Deal With Slipped Disc, Neck And Back Issues?

So here are a few tips that will help you get the relief you need from back pain:

  • Avoid tech neck or text neck: Tech neck and text neck are conditions caused by excessive use of smart devices such as mobile phones, tablets, and computers. Text and tech neck postures are not harmful to the neck alone, but your entire body. What makes tech and text neck bad is the posture associated with them. Minimizing the amount of time you spend on your cell phone and computers will dramatically improve the severity of your neck pain and back pain.
  • Limit sitting: Prolonged sitting puts stress on your muscles, joints, and spinal discs. Try to avoid sitting for more than 30-minutes at a time. Get up and walk around for 3-5 minutes with every 30 minutes of sitting. Avoid poor posture; Poor posture is the leading cause of neck and back pain. Hunching over your laptop or sitting in a slouched position is harmful not just to your neck and back, but also to your internal organs. So, straighten up and take note of your postures today.
  • Exercise and stretch: Stretch your neck and back muscles and do some exercises that are fun so that you can continue doing them. For example, take regular walks, or maybe some swimming or yoga. It is important to start with an exercise program that makes you feel good as soon as possible.
  • Get professional help: If the above-mentioned advice and self-help tips fail to eliminate your neck or back issues, contact CSC. Chiropractic Specialty Center® (CSC) provides combined care through physiotherapy and chiropractic in Malaysia.
