Slipped Disc can be FIXED without SURGERY!

Eight years ago, we launched the first Chiropractic Specialty Center in Bukit Damansara.  From our beginning until this day, we have provided Malaysians and Expats focused World Class Chiropractic and Physiotherapy services.  Our knowledge, Skills and our Advanced Hi-Tech therapeutic modalities have been the corner stones of our success.  

The knowledge and skills of our clinical team is second t none.  This knowledge and set of skills combined with our Hi-Tech method of Spine, Joint and Sports Injuries has enabled us to treat even conditions that were hopeless.  Today, we can proudly say that our centers are the BEST non-surgical Spine, Joint & Sports Injury treatment center in town.  

The video on this page was provided by one of our patients that wanted to share his story with other that have chronic back pain.  This gentleman came all the way from United Kingdom to get NSD Therapy.  In the UK he was told to have surgery.  That meant the end of his sky-jumping days.  Not liking that option, he looked for the BEST non-surgical option.  In that research he found NSD Therapy.  

Soon thereafter, he visited Malaysia to obtain the much-needed treatments and on his last day he was in almost a perfect condition.  A severe slipped disc changed his life for the worse.  We changed back for the better.  If you have back pain or neck pain you need us.  NSD Therapy is a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy and Advanced Hi-Tech rehabilitation.  

Visit one of our centers to see how NSD Therapy is better than anything else you may have done.  You owe it to yourself.  Why pay for treatments and therapies that don't work.  Learn how NSD Therapy can help your recovery from a slipped disc today.

European Medical Research: “Arthroscopic Knee Surgery is a Bogus Procedure!”

Visit us on line to read about the bogus knee surgery (arthroscopic) at:
You need your knees for a healthy active life.  Knee problems are one of the most common complaints associated with quality of life.  We depend on our knees from the moment we get up in the morning, until it is time to go back to bed.  Unfortunately, some take their knees for granted.  They only pay heed when it limits them or when it hinders their favorite pastime.

The knees are the most commonly injured joints.  They are also, the first to degenerate.  Knee problems are mechanical disorders that result from trauma or excessive stress.  When issues arise, the BEST and ONLY option a knee sufferer is specialized non-surgical treatment options that focus on repair and recovery.  Surgery should never even be entertained. 

The latest research that came from Europe is a study that has exposed the alarming failure rates of the Arthroscopic knee surgery!  Researchers are now calling this a procedure that will damage a patient more than it will help.  In other words, it is worse than wasting time or money; it will actually harm your knees more.

Arthroscopic repairs or arthroscopic meniscectomy is one of the most common orthopedic procedures.  You get knee pain; you end up in the surgeon’s office.  The MRI he has you do shows some damage to the Meniscus and so he says, “Let’s Operate.”

Before you let the man with the knife open you up to the dangers of infection, nerve damage and death, you might want to listen to the advice of all the good doctors from Finland involved in the Finnish Degenerative Meniscal Lesion Study [1] and don’t do it.  Skip the operation because it doesn’t work. 

That is what a group of highly accomplished professor doctors reported in their published multi-clinic research.  Their research is reshaping the world.  Your orthopedic surgeon may not be happy about it, but you knees will love it.  They don’t have to be cut on to get better!

To quote this study, “…the outcomes after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy were no better than those after a sham surgical procedure.” 

In other words, fake (bogus) meniscus surgery works every bit as good as real surgery.  In fact, the Orthopedic Professors that did this research related that a fake or a bogus procedure was better than the real one. 

The researchers pointed out that the so –called “Meniscus surgery” makes no sense.  So, save your money, knees and maybe even save your life because any time you have any kind of major surgery there is always the risk of infection or death. Surgery is always the last option, never the first.

Here at Chiropractic Specialty Center we have a lot of experience treating meniscus problems in our knee patients.  Even the part of the meniscus that isn’t supposed to heal will heal, if you give it the chance and the proper treatment.  Come in and let us show you how.   

Unlike others, we actually have knee therapy protocols that we follow.  Our knee treatment protocols involve specialized chiropractic adjustments, focused customized physiotherapy coupled with Hi-Tech rehab and specific exercises.  Literally we are better than all the rest.  Best of all, we will not pressure you into plans or sell you expensive useless braces as some do in town.  With our assistance, you will reclaim your life and enjoy living an active healthy life again.  You can count on it!

Call our visit us and you will see our difference.  We have made patients better even when their surgeon told them that there is nothing left to cut.  Call us even if you have been told to live with the pain.  Even if you thing there is no hope—we are that GOOD. 

We have several locations throughout the Klang Valley.  Visit us on line at locations and services information.

Chiropractic Care

Research based chiropractors at
Chiropractic Speciaty Center
Chiropractic care helps you maintain the health and integrity of your skeletal, muscular and nervous systems naturally without the use of drugs. The Problem: “Subluxations” Vertebral Subluxation The brain controls all aspects of the body’s ability to properly function by being connected through the spinal cord that in turn is connected to the peripheral spinal nerves that are connected to every living cell in the body.

Interference in the link between the brain and rest of the body can lead to ill health. Interferences often occur in between the moving bones that surround the spinal cord as a result of trauma to the body. These bones come together to form joints that can become overtime immobile or hypermobile as a result of poor posture, repetitive motion, or improper lifting. Emotional stress as well as poor nutrition, drugs and pollution can also contribute to this problem. These problems can begin as early as childbirth.

When this type of interference occurs, it is referred to as “chiropractic subluxation“. As a result of this interference or spinal subluxation, nerves can become irritated causing numbness, weakness, and organ hyperactivity. Muscles can become too tight. Discs, ligaments and other connective tissues can become inflamed and spinal curvatures can become lost resulting in formation of bone spurs and arthritic degeneration.

condition in full before treatment
Arthritic degeneration is the body’s response to uneven joint wear tear eventually resulting in fusion of the joint. The Solution: Chiropractic Exam & Treatment Subluxations and subsequent spinal decay often go undetected. The results of a thorough chiropractic examination can show the exact location and severity of any subluxations you may have. Assuming that subluxations are identified in your chiropractic exam, the best way to relieve fixated and/or stuck joints and nerve irritations is through the application of a chiropractic adjustment.

A chiropractic adjustment is a quick force applied through the hand or with an Activator tool with just enough energy in a precise direction to a fixated spinal joint or extremity joint such as a knee or shoulder.

The benefits of being adjust by one of our research based clinical chiropractors include: 
  • Increased range of motion
  • Breaking of articular adhesions
  • Joint muscles receptor stimulation
  • Inhibition of pain
  • Relaxation of paraspinal muscles

Stimulation of autonomic nervous system (control blood flow to vital organs as well as many other functions) A chiropractic adjustment, also known as chiropractic manipulation, manual manipulation, or spinal manipulation, is a common therapeutic treatment for lower back pain. A chiropractic adjustment typically involves:

A high velocity, short lever arm thrust applied to a vertebra

With the traditional and old fashioned chiropractic manipulative techniques you may hear an accompanying, audible release of gas (joint cavitation) that is caused by the release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure (cavitation).  The manual method is a good method of mobilizing structure.  However, the manual methods of manipulation may cause pain and discomfort for some.  Furthermore, patients with acute and painful condition or conditions that is related to spondylosis or a slipped disc should not be treated by a manual chiropractor.  For those in acute pain or a condition in which the spinal disc is involved should seek care from a chiropractor that utilizes an instrument called a activator.

The chiropractors of Chiropractic Specialty Centers utilize the activator instrument in a unique and proprietary manner to deliver treatments for spine and joint.  The results speak for themselves.  Our method of manipulation and our chiropractors are the reasons why we succeed when other fail.

Chiropractic Specialty Centers offer more than just Chiropractic
We offer a collaborative advanced spine and joint care through
a team of expert research based chiropractors, clinical physiotherapists
backed by advanced technology.  

A relieving sensation most of the time, although minor discomfort has been reported (that usually lasts for a short time duration) if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during this chiropractic care. Chiropractic Adjustment Techniques There are many different manipulative techniques that can be utilized in chiropractic, and there is a certain skill level and "art" involved with high velocity, low amplitude adjustment or manipulation. It is perhaps more important for the chiropractor to determine when not to apply the adjustment.

Is Chiropractic Safe? 
Chiropractic adjustments are very safe. A New Zealand research study has shown chiropractic to be “remarkably” safe and without side effects.  The chiropractic adjustments (treatments) utilized by Chiropractors of Chiropractic Specialty Centers are perhaps the safest and most gentle method in town.   The traditional old fashioned chiropractic treatments may be good for some conditions, but our chiropractors prefer a more focused and precise method of spinal or joint mobilization.

There are many practitioners both in chiropractic and in other forms of traditional therapy providers that utilize a manual manipulation for the neck.  This method of rotatory treatments, where the head and neck are turned and tilted to a side before the deliver of a thrust may cause pain or even harm if not rendered properly or if rendered to a patients with a spinal disc disease.  This was the main reason why we have chosen to utilize an instrument when we treat a patient.  Through instrumentation, we have found that treatments are highly focused (mush better than it would have been through the manual method), significantly safer and more effective.

If you have had chiropractic adjustments or other lesser methods of manipulations and still have pain, contact one of our centers and see the difference.  We have succeeded in many circumstances where others have failed.

Check your Child for SCOLIOSIS

Scoliosis is a common condition and really no one is immune from it.   This is not a disease and most of the time it may not require any treatment at all, but even those that does not require a treatment should be closely monitored.    The key is early detection.  Once detected, the goal is to prevent the curve from getting worse. 

Monitoring is key to any disorder, but when it comes to abnormal spinal curve (scoliosis) monitoring should be done for all.  Every child between ages 6 to 14 should have their spine checked at least once every year.  If there is a scoliotic curve detected, the child needs to have radiographic evaluations once every 3 months until mid to late teenage years and then once every 6 months after skeletal maturation. 

It is said that one should go to a dentist at least once every 6 months.  The same holds true for the spine.  Have your child checked on regular basis.  All too often, parents are in disheartened when they learn that their child has a moderate or severe scoliosis.  A moderate or a severe scoliosis does not develop over night.  It takes time, sometimes years.  In almost all cases these could have ben caught earlier and certain procedures and exercises could have been prescribed to prevent worsening of the curve. 

Some may be too busy, some may not know where to go to have their child evaluated and there are some that are prevented from going because of financial difficulties.   Regardless of the reason, we implore all parents to have their kids 6 and older checked for scoliosis on regular basis.  The best place to have this done is by a person that understands scoliotic curvatures.  

Typically, pediatricians, orthopedic surgeons that specialize in kids,chiropractors and some physiotherapist are best suited for this.  In our centers, our team of expert chiropractors and spine physiotherapist can easily detect and render advice for you.  We do not recommend self-diagnosing or diagnosing your child on your own, unless you are an expert in the filed of spine, joint or sports injuries. 

But for those whom time or resources are limited and they have no other choice at all, we have provided a quick and easy system of a simplified check-up.  Please remember that this method is only able to detect scoliosis conditions that are moderate or worse.  Milder forms and certain curve types may not be detected by this self-help system.  In any case, read through and perform the procedure on your child.  Feel free to call our main office at 03-2093 1000 for information.

We encourage every one of our visitors to have the spines of their kids evaluated by an expert that understands. Spinal conditions.  You can have one of our chiropractors or spine physiotherapists look and evaluate your child’s spine.  But for many, it may be difficult.  If you happen to be one of those with limited time, at least do some monitoring at home, by taking notes of some signs.  Again, do not assume that your child does not have this.  It is better to monitor and know today rather than tomorrow.  Key to prevention is early detection.

To check your child for scoliosis at home you will need to have him or her remove their shirt to make the spine visible.  Have them stand straight and take note of the height of their shoulders.  Both shoulders should be at the exact same height.  If one is higher than the other, chances are there is a scoliotic curve.  Also, there are those that have perfectly levelled shoulders with scoliosis.  This is why you need to further monitor using another sign call the Adam’s Scoliosis Sign. 

Adam’s sign is particularly helpful in detecting a curve.   You can easily do this test by asking your child to bend forward, starting at the waist until the back comes in the horizontal plane, with the feet together, arms hanging and the knees in extension.  Ask your child to hold his or her palms together.  When they in in proper position, you as the examiner should stand at the back (behind your child) and look along the horizontal plane of the spine, searching for side bending of the spinal bone, asymmetry of the trunk or a hump on either side of the spine.
