European Research: “Avoid Arthroscopic Knee Surgery ”

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 option a knee sufferer is specialized non-surgical knee treatment that focuses on repair and recovery.  Knee surgery should never even be entertained unless you have exhausted your non-surgical route first!

The latest research that came from Europe is a study that has exposed the alarming failure rates of 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 opt for surgery, call us and explore your non-surgical options. 

Arthroscopic surgery is a waste of time and they don't work on meniscal issues. 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 your 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 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 a chance and the proper treatment. Come in and let us show you how.

Get the Best Chiropractic Care in Malaysia

Opt for Corrective Chiropractic Care

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 the 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 the formation of bone spurs and arthritic degeneration.

Arthritic degeneration is the body’s response to uneven joint wear tear, eventually resulting in the 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 adjusted 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 an excellent method of mobilizing structure.  However, the manual techniques of manipulation may cause pain and discomfort for some.  Furthermore, patients with an acute and painful condition or conditions that are 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 an 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 others fail.

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 Many different manipulative techniques 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 Center® 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 manual manipulation for the neck.  This method of rotatory treatments, where the head and neck are turned and tilted to a side before the delivery of thrust may cause pain or even harm if not rendered correctly or if rendered to patients with 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 (much 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.

How to Check your Child for Scoliosis in Malaysia?

What is Scoliosis and How you can check for it at home?

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 do not require 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 the 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 regularly. All too often, parents are in disheartened when they learn that their child has moderate or severe scoliosis. Moderate or severe scoliosis does not develop overnight.  It takes time, sometimes years. In almost all cases these could have been caught earlier, and specific 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 some 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 regularly. 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 field 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 understand spinal conditions. You can have one of our chiropractors or spine physiotherapists look and assess 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.

What is the Best Home Test for Scoliosis?

To check your child for scoliosis at home, you will need to have him, or she 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, some have perfectly leveled shoulders with scoliosis. This is why you need to further monitor using another sign, Adam’s Scoliosis Sign. 

Self-help test for scoliosis
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 the 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.
