Scoliosis Treatment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Fix and Repair Scoliosis without Surgery

Over the years, we have had many requests to write about the non-operative treatment options for those diagnosed with scoliosis. The clinical teams of physiotherapists and chiropractors-in-Malaysia have provided this article to explain the non-surgical treatment options for scoliosis. Before we get into the meat and potatoes of treatments, let's cover some necessary information about scoliosis so that you may be better informed.

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a complex spinal deformity that involves lateral deviation, twisting of the spine, and decreased sagittal spinal curvature. Over the past few decades, rehabilitation exercises have been part of the treatment program to manage and prevent the progression of the scoliotic curve. Recent research suggested that the development of postural deviation originates from a dysfunctional interaction between the central nervous system and body biomechanics.

What are the most common causes of scoliosis?

There are two main approaches, based on two different hypotheses for the development of scoliosis. The neurophysiological plan is developed based on the premise that adolescent idiopathic scoliosis has a significant central nervous system dysfunction. The other approach, namely the biomechanical approach, was founded on the theory that adolescent idiopathic scoliosis originates from a muscular imbalance. However, recent research showed that both central nervous system dysfunction and muscular imbalance contribute to the development and progression of scoliosis. Therefore, both approaches need inclusion in rehabilitation programs to achieve better results.

Common causes of Scoliosis in Malaysia

Understanding the neural mechanisms of the motor and postural control and their interactions with body biomechanics and with cognitive systems is vital in facilitating the rehabilitation exercise program for scoliosis. Mapping of the spatial coordinates and body awareness is a leading role of the cognitive systems. All of the fields mentioned above need to be explored and keep in mind while planning an effective rehabilitation exercise program for scoliosis.

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is one of the most common causes of spinal deformity in adolescents. AIS has the most significant impact on adolescent undergoing a rapid growth period. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is characterized by a lateral deviation, axial rotation, and reduction of sagittal curvatures of the spine that develops during growth. Girls have a higher risk of developing AIS, and they are more likely to develop severe scoliosis with Cobb angle measured more than 30 degrees. AIS can lead to physical deformity, psychological issues, biomechanical impairment, neuromotor deficit, and cardiorespiratory dysfunction.

Over the years, research has demonstrated a few factors that may contribute to the development and progression of AIS. The main factors include defective central nervous system control of the body posture, alteration of body schema, abnormal interaction between hormones involved in the growth processes such as melatonin and growth hormone, genetic factors leading to cell membrane defects affecting collagen and skeletal muscles, and biomechanical issues of the spine. Adolescents with a strong family history of idiopathic scoliosis are at high risk of developing a severe scoliotic curvature.

What are your best options for scoliosis treatment in Malaysia?

There are two main treatments available for AIS, conservative treatment and surgical option. Conservative treatment should be exhausted before a surgical approach is required. In scoliosis with Cobb angle less than 50-degrees, conservative management including physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, and extensive rehabilitation exercise program can be introduced to manage scoliosis. This main goal of this initial conservative treatment is to prevent the rapid deterioration of the scoliotic curve and the need for spinal fusion surgery. If conservative treatment fails, surgery will be the other option.

Chiropractic Treatment in Malaysia for Mid Back Pain

Mid Back Pain Treated by Chiropractic and Physiotherapy Combined

People with mid back pain frequently present with pain between or around the shoulder blades. The pain can be in the middle, on the left or right side, or on both sides. A sudden movement to the thoracic spine may have triggered the pain, or the pain may have commenced gradually over some time. Twisting and turning or side bending of the spine usually will aggravate the thoracic pain. Numbness or pins and needles along the rib cage at the affected level may be reported. Signs and symptoms along the dermatomal distribution are more predictable in the thoracic area. However, symptoms may vary in some instances.

Injury to the adjacent cervico-thoracic spine may refer pain to the shoulder area. The lower thoracic region cannot be overlooked in patients with buttock, hip, or inguinal symptoms. The internal organs that lie near the thoracic spine must be checked as these organs are capable of referring pain to the spinal region mimicking a mechanical spine injury.

The range of motion and mobility of the intervertebral segments in the thoracic spine should be carefully assessed. The paraspinal and periscapular muscles should be examined for tightness, trigger points, and weakness. The lower cervical and upper lumbar spine should be included in the physical examination due to its close proximity to the thoracic spine. Neurological tests of the spine can be performed to rule out neural structure damage.

Why should you opt for combined treatment fro chiropractors and physiotherapsitss?

Chiropractic with physiotherapy combined for back pain provides lasting relief you need. Mid back pain results from muscles, ligaments, joints, and spinal disc issues. To recover, you need holistic measures that targeted all of the damaged tissues. That is where the combined care through chiropractic with physiotherapy comes in. The best center for back pain treatment in Malaysia is Chiropractic Specialty Center®.

Mid Back Pain Treatment in Malaysia: Non-Surgical Care

Mid Back Pain Treatment in Malaysia without Surgery or Injections

Thoracic pain, or mid back pain, which is the pain in the back region between the neck and the lower back, can origin from several different structures in the thoracic spine. The most common causes of an upper nack pain or mid back pain include injury of the thoracic facet joints, ribs articulations, intervertebral disc, paraspinal muscles, periscapular muscles, and intercostals muscles. However, other nociceptive structures of the thoracic spine are also capable of producing pain in the thoracic region. Get the best mid and upper back pain treatment in Malaysia from our expert clinical teams of chiropractors and physiotherapists today. 

Learn more about the common back pain that is affecting the population in Malaysia. 

The thoracic spine plays a leading role in providing stability to the axial skeleton. Hypomobility or stiffness of the intervertebral joint of one or more segments is ubiquitous in a presentation that results in thoracic pain. Referred pain to the side or to the front of the chest wall is not an uncommon presentation in disorders of the thoracic spine. A prolapsed intervertebral disc is a less common cause of thoracic pain as this region of the spine. Injury of the rib articulations is not that common. However, this can happen in isolation or with the present of intervertebral joint injuries.

Another common source of pain in the thoracic spine region in adolescents is Scheuermann’s disease. This is a disorder of the growth plates of the thoracic spinal vertebra. Fracture of the rib posteriorly can cause pain in the thoracic spine region. Cardiac causes and peptic ulcer can sometimes refer pain to the middle back.

Best Slipped Disc Treatment in Kula Lumpur, Malaysia

Fix and Repair your Slipped Disc Without Surgery in Malaysia

Slip disc or slipped disc is a layperson term used for bulges, herniations, prolapsed, protrusions, extrusion or fragmentation os the spinal disc. A slipped disc can vary in severity. It is the most common cause of paralysis and disability in persons under the age of 50.

Slipped disc (slip-disc) is a common condition impacting the lives of thousands in Malaysia. The best means of treating a slip-disc si through conservative treatments. However, for a conservative measure to work, they will need to be condition-specific and highly focused.

Spinal disc issues can occur at any of the 24 spinal segments. However, slip discs are more common in the neck and low back.

What caused your slip disc in the low back?

The most common cause of slip disc is degenerative changes in the spinal discs. Degenerative disc disease is a condition caused by increased intradiscal pressure (increased pressure inside the spinal disc). The intradiscal pressure increase in activities that require bending or twisting at the waist and prolonged sitting. Slouching forward while sitting is said to most harmful of all activities.

chiropractic Vs spine surgery in Malaysia

Slip disc has been one of the most common causes of lower back pain in Malaysia. Pain originating from the intervertebral disc has been thought to be one of the causative reasons for a lower back injury. Intervertebral disc with extra nerve supply, especially the inner part of the spinal disc, can be one of the factors leading to discogenic low back pain. Recent research has shown that only painful discs demonstrate additional nerve ingrowth into the inner spinal disc. This may result in non-specific discogenic low back pain with or without radicular symptoms in the lower limbs. Innervation of a healthy spinal disc is only limited to the outer one-third of the spinal disc. Positive MRI findings for painful disc may include a loss of disc height, degeneration of the spinal disc, the presence of hyper-intensity zone or annular tear, and Modic changes.

Is spine surgery or injections right for slip-disc?

spine surgery for slip disc

Injections or spine surgery are risky and ineffective in the long-term. A spinal injection is painful and has nasty side-effects, including paralysis and death!. The so-called minimally invasive spine surgery is not any better. Patients who have received the minimally invasive spine surgery will require additional spine surgery in the future. The worse of all spine procedures are the facet spacers and nuceloplasty. Nuceloplasty or percutaneous discectomy is touted as minimal spine surgery. However, what most surgeon neglect to tell you is that research published calls a ban on this method of spine surgery. A recently published article puts the failure rate of nuceloplasty or percutaneous discectomy at 100%. Contact us before you consider spine surgery in Malaysia. Consult one of our non-surgical spine experts today. We have treated thousands of slipped disc pateints who were told to have spine fusions non-surgically. Spine fusion has the second-highest failure rate. Nuceloplasty was once the to-go-to forms of surgeryA U.S. government back research found 76% failure rate in spine fusions.

Spinal disc tears and Back Pain

The hyperintensity tear within the annular fiber is a localized area of bright zones commonly found on T2-weighted MRI on the outer layer of the disc. These lesions represent the normal lamellar structure being replaced by disorganized granulation tissue with newly formed blood vessels which can extend from the outer layer to the inner nucleus pulposus. There are a few types of tear, including radial, transverse or concentric, which may involve one or many layers of the annular lamellae. These tears may be associated with lower back pain. These tears which are replaced by disorganized granulation tissues with additional blood vessels can lead to nerve ingrowth. Hence, the injured disc with extra nerve supply is capable of producing pain when force is being exerted on the spinal disc or when it is being irritated.

Fix and Repair Severe Low Back Pain Without Surgery

Best Non-Surgical Treatment for Severe Low Back Pain in Malaysia

Patients presenting with severe, progressive low back pain, fever, history of intravenous drug use and history of recent infection require additional imaging to rule out infection of the spine. Spinal infection is not a common cause of severe low back pain as it only affects about 0.01% of patients with back pain. However, the spinal infection can cause significant pain in the back. Spinal infection can affect the spinal bone, the intervertebral disc, the spinal canal, or any combination of these. A negative X-ray imaging cannot rule out the spinal infection. This is because 30-50% of bony changes at the affected site are required before it can be shown on the plain film. MRI, magnetic resonance imaging of the spine is needed to diagnose or rule out spinal infection.

Learn more about back pain treatment in Malaysia 

About 80% to 90% of lower back pain cases are diagnosed as non-specific low back pain as it is difficult to pin-point one structural or functional cause. In most cases of low back pain, the adjacent structures in and around the painful site such as the intervertebral discs, facet and sacroiliac joints, ligaments and muscles can all contribute to the pain. Therefore, an effective treatment program for lower back pain should include different modalities to address each and every component of the back pain.

MRI is the Best Diagnostic Exan for Low Back Pain in Malaysia

MRI os spine and body

Benefit from our Chiropractic Back Treatment Based on MRI Findings

Lower back pain is widespread in our population and is commonly believed to be benign and self-limiting. However, debilitating pain and severe paresthesia can affect the activity of daily livings if the lower back pain is not treated correctly. MRI of the lumbar spine may be needed in some instances for the health care practitioner to differentiate severe spinal pathology from non-specific low back pain. A detail history and examination of the patient is required to assess the lower back condition of the patient.

MRI of the lumbar spine is needed to rule out serious pathology when “red flag” findings are present during the assessment of the patient. Lower back pain with radicular leg pain or other significant signs and symptoms may require imaging to rule out serious spinal pathology. Disc herniation or slipped disc and degenerative disc disease are the most common causes of lower back pain. These findings can be easily located and localized on MRI of the lumbar spine. These two conditions can be treated with conservative management. Other underlying severe conditions of the spine include trauma, cauda equina syndrome, progressive neurologic deficit, infection, and malignancy.

The patient’s history or the mechanism of injury with a detailed assessment of the lower back is needed to determine if further imaging of the spine is required. The health care practitioner should determine if X-ray, CT scan, MRI of the spine, or other imaging or laboratory test is needed for further evaluation of the condition.

Stablize your Spine with Focused Chirorpactic Care

Spine Stability and Chiropractic Care

Bony restraint from facet joint orientation and ligamentous support are the major contributors to the passive stability of the lumbar intervertebral segments. However, these segments are unstable upon movement of the spine in the absence of dynamic neuromuscular control. A combination of dynamic muscular forces and passive ligamentous support are required to provide stability and movements of the spine for activities of daily living and sports activity. Spinal instability has been reported in some cases of spondylolisthesis which involves the forward slippage of the spinal segment. The presentation of spinal instability in these cases includes hypermobility or increased displacement or range of motion. Learn more about spondylolisthesis:

There are two major muscle groups in the lower back, local and global muscles, which should be working together to provide stability and mobility of the lumbar spine. Global muscles are large, dynamic, phasic muscles that connect the pelvis to the rib cage, which generates torque movements and general trunk stabilization. Rectus abdominus, external oblique and upper part of lumbar iliocostalis are considered as global muscles.

Local postural, tonic muscles are attaching directly to the lumbar vertebrae and are the major contributors to the lumbar segmental stability. Lumbar multifidus, psoas muscle, quadratus lumborum, lumbar parts of iliocostalis and longissimus, transversus abdominis, the diaphragm, and the posterior fibers of the internal oblique are a few examples of the local muscles in the lower back. These muscles are essential to maintain the spinal stability during movement of the trunk.

Common Causes of Lower Back Pain and Slip-Disc in Malaysia

lower back pain treatment

Get Focused Non-Surgical Treatment for Back Pain and Slip-Disc 

Back pain and slip-disc caused by spinal instabilities are on the rise. Spinal weakness or instability include disorders that impact the muscles, ligaments, joints, and spinal discs. An unstable spine leads to improper joint and muscle function leading to painful movements or actions. Lower back pain and slip-disc results when the volatile segment in the lumbar or sacral region of the spine exceeds beyond the normal limits. The chiropractic word for spinal instabilities is a subluxation.

What is a Subluxation?

A subluxation is a minor misalignment of the spine brought forth by boney malpositioning of spinal bones and spinal soft tissue (muscles, ligaments and spinal disc). Lower back pain resulting from spinal bone misalignment is called a subluxation. Subluxations can lead to more severe issues such as a slipped disc. Slipped discs are the leading causes of disability in persons under the age of 45.

A subluxated segment is weak spinal area suitable to degenerative changes and nerve compressions. Correction of spinal subluxations is best through a combined effort of chiropractor and physiotherapists.

Chiropractic and physiotherapy combined for back pain.

The manual procedures in our center are given by chiropractors and physiotherapists. The chiropractic manual procedures are called an adjustment. Manual therapy is sorts of a targeted non-painful deep massage, better known as trigger point therapy. 

What is a Trigger Point?

Trigger points are specific sensitive pain-producing points located in tight muscles or fascias that can refer pain to other areas. Trigger points associated with lower back pain are commonly found in quadratus lumborum, erector spinae, gluteal, and piriformis muscle. Trigger points may or may not be the initial problem; however, these can cause significant pain in patients with lower back conditions. The pain resulted from active trigger points with associated muscle spasm or tightness can further aggravate the abnormalities in the underlying joints. Therefore, the resultant pain from trigger points and muscle tightness must are addressed and appropriately treated.

In an acute low back pain case, abnormalities of the joints are more likely to be the major source of pain. In a chronic low back pain case, muscular and neural abnormalities must be taken into consideration. These components should be treated, and re-assessment should be performed from time to time to evaluate the effectiveness of the treatments.

Hypertrophy of Ligamentum Flavum and Slip-Disc In Malaysia

facet joints of the low back as the main cause of back pain

Best Treatment for Hypertrophy of Ligamentum Flavum and Slip-disc

The three most common causes of lower back pain in Malaysia are slipped disc, facet joint injury, and ligamentous issues. Most of the time, these three conditions co-exist, leading to severe pain in the back, buttocks, or lower limbs. It is challenging to differentiate clinically between a slipped disc, facet joint injuries, or ligamentous issues.

What is Facet Hypertrophy and Hypertrophy of Ligamentum Falvum?

Facet injuries lead to facet hypertrophy or facet syndrome, a complicated spinal condition that requires urgent care. A neglected facet injury always leads to thicking or facets (spinal joints). A thickened spinal joint (facet) is known as Facet hypertrophy. Those diagnosed with facet hypertrophy will also exhibit some degree of ligamentous issues. The most common ligament problem in pateints with spinal disc and facet injuries is that involving ligamentum flavum. Ligamentum flavum is a thick yellowish ligament the help with spinal stability during movements. The term hypertrophy of ligamentum flavum is used when injuries of ligamentum flavum go untreated and thicken up.
Best means of assessing spinal joints, ligaments, discs, and muscles

There are a few clinical examinations which can be served as a guide to distinguish between spinal disc damage, ligaments, and facet joint injury. However, these examinations must be correlated with other clinical signs and symptoms to make a definite diagnosis.

Learn more about our non-operative treatment for slipped disc through technology that others do not have in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: 

What type of pain is felt with facet hypertrophy of spinal joint injury?

Patients with disc damages are more likely to report pain upon forwarding bending of the trunk. Whereas patients with facet joint injuries often complain of pain with extension of the lower back. Other than that, the site of maximal tenderness can be different between disc and facet joint injuries. The most tender spot for a patient with disc damage is more centrally around the spinous process. However, the most tender spot for a facet joint injury is more towards the side of the damaged side.

Hypomobility of one or more spinal segments is commonly associated with a slipped disc and facet joint damages. This can be one of the causes that contribute to lower back pain. Intervertebral segments with restricted movement should be corrected with mobilization or manipulation of the joint to manage the lower back pain.

Spinal Disc Degeneration, Back Pain, and Slip-Disc in Malaysia

slipped disc and nerve compression

What Caused Your Slipped Disc?

The most common causes of a slipped disc spinal disc degeneration. If you have a  slipped disc you are not alone. Slipped discs are becoming all too common. A slipped disc is layperson term for bulging disc, herniated disc, prolapsed disc, protruded disc, extruded disc, or fragmented disc. These are the leading causes of back pain and disability. Also, it is the most common reason why so many opt for surgery.

Watch the video below and discover the best treatment for back pain and slip-disc in Malaysia:

If you have been diagnosed with a slipped disc, you don't need surgery or injections. The best treatment for a slipped disc is conservative treatments that fix and repairs the actual damage from inside, without surgery or injections. Chiropractic Specialty Center® is Malaysia's premiere slipped disc treatment center. Our expertise and advanced methodology are far superior to what other competing centers provide.

What caused your slipped disc?

Degenerative disc disease is the leading cause. However, for a degenerated disc to slip or herniate, it must get exposed to undue stresses. As such, prolonged sitting, poor posture, and sports activities are the leading causes of a slipped disc in the presence of spinal disc degenerative changes. Health spinal discs help bear your with and allow mobility. Degenerative changes lead to loose of fluids and elasticity, rendering the spinal disc weak.

A healthy disc does not herniate, bulge, protrude, or extrude. However, once the disc loses its elasticity and weight-bearing characteristics, it becomes susceptible to spinal disc injuries such as a slipped disc. Contrary to common belief, spinal disc damage is not seen in the aging or elderly. It can be seen in young adults and teenagers. Published research reports spinal disc damage in kids as young as 9-years old.

Can a slipped disc be repaired without surgery in Malaysia?

Why spine surgery is not good

Spine surgery is not as effective as you may have heard! A U.S. government-backed research puts the failure rate of spine fusion at 76%. The minimally invasive spine surgery is not much better. Of course, some lasts for a few years, that is if you are lucky. For most, re[ated surgical interventions are common. As such, it is advisable to seek conservative treatments that can repair the cause of your pain.

Best slipped disc treatment in Malaysia

Spinal Disc Damage, Low Back Pain and Slip-Disc in Malaysia

Spinal DIsc Damage is the Leading Cause of Slip-Disc and Back Pain

Disc damage or slipped disc or slip disc can be one of the diagnoses for neck or low back pain. There are different types of disc damage that can result in pain such as ruptured or herniated disc, degenerated disc, excessive torsional injury, and compression injury of the disc. Most of the disc injuries involve damages and abnormalities not only the disc but also the soft tissue structures around the disc.

Excessive rotational or torsional stress may cause injury to the facet joints, the annulus fibrosus, or most commonly both. The annulus fibrosus is under maximal stress when the disc is being loaded in a bent and twisted position. Therefore, people who always injured their back when they lift heavy objects in a forward bending position with the upper body rotating to one side.

Repetitive torsional injury to the disc may lead to tears seen on MRI. Annulus fibrosus with tears are more susceptible to nucleus pulposus herniation. An inflammatory reaction may be provoked in response to the annular tear, and this will result in pain from chemical irritation. This chemical nociception normally presents as a diffuse back pain that may or may not is referred to the lower limbs. Any movement of the lumbar spine, especially forward bending and twisted, can aggravate the lower back pain from excessive rotational stress.

The Best Back pain and Slip-Disc Treatment in Malaysia

Best Slip-Disc and Back Pain Treatment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Many years ago, the intervertebral disc (Spinal Disc) was thought to have no nerve supply and therefore incapable of producing pain when irritated or damage. However, recent research has shown that the outer one-third or sometimes the outer half of the posterior annulus fibrosus is innervated by sensory nerves. Therefore, the outer layer of the posterior annulus fibrosus is capable of producing pain when it is damaged or irritated. Learn more about slipped disc or disc bulge

Traditionally, there were two major types of disc injury which can result in local spinal pain with or without radicular signs and symptoms. One of the injuries is disc herniation or extrusion. Disc herniation occurs when the center nucleus pulposus is no longer contained by the outer annulus fibrosus and is extruded through a tear in the annulus fibrosus. Nerve root impingements and spinal canal encroachment can happen as a result of disc herniation. The other type of injuries is known as degeneration of the disc. Disc space narrowing, vertebral endplates degenerative changes and bone spur formation are the common imaging findings of disc degeneration. All these degenerative changes can result in the spinal canal or neural foraminal narrowing. Nerve root impingement or irritation due to the spinal canal or neural foraminal encroachment can lead to pain and paresthesia at the site of injury.

According to recent research, a disc without herniation or degeneration is capable of producing pain. This discogenic pain can be a result of torsional injury or compression injury of the annulus fibrosus. Traditionally, many that have a slipped disc (slip disc) are encouraged to have surgical interventions. While surgical centers and surgeons prefer surgical treatments, it might be better for you to avoid surgery as surgery has failed to show lasting improvements.

Hip Pain and Back Pain Treatment in Kuala Lumpur

hip pain and back pain

Get the Best Hip Pain and Back Pain Treatment in Malaysia

The chiropractors and physiotherapists of Chiropractic Specialty Center® offer the best and most comprehensive hip pain and back pain treatment in Kuala Lumpur. Their treatments are better as they identify the source of your hip and low back pain and then get busy fixing them. The key to recovery is targeted treatments that fix issues that caused your pain in the first place. Best of all, the care you get is painless, and through technology that others do not have.

Low back pain can be coming from the structures in the lumbar spine or referred from the adjacent joints such as the hip joint. A detailed examination of the hip joint in patients with low back pain is necessary to rule out abnormalities of the hip joint such as labral tears, rim lesions, and osteoarthritic changes in the joint. Abnormalities of the hip joint may present as low back pain, or both the hip joint and lumbar spine can be the primary sources that contribute to the lower back pain. Therefore, both conditions that coexist must be managed and treated at the same time to achieve maximum medical improvement in the shortest period.

What caused the pain in your back?

Any structures of the lumbar spine are capable of producing pain. Vertebral venous plexus, dura mater, ligaments of the vertebral arches, muscles, and fascia, vertebral bodies, laminae, apophyseal joints, and annulus fibrosus of the intervertebral disc are the common structures that can result in low back pain when irritated.

Irritation and damage of the intervertebral disc and facet joints are the most common causes of lower back pain. However, as the condition progresses, abnormalities of the adjacent soft tissues must be considered as the sources of lower back pain. Abnormalities of the ligaments of the intervertebral joints, muscles, fascias, and neural structures must be taken into consideration when treating chronic lower back pain.

Spondylolisthesis VS. Spondylolysis: Condition and Treatment

spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis shown

Get the best treatment for Spondylolisthesis or Spondylolysis

Spondylolysis is a reference to a separation between joints of the spine. This separation can also result from fractures and as such, spondylolysis. Spondylolysis is synonymous with a stress fracture of the pars inter-articularis. It is more commonly seen in gymnastics, fast bowling (cricket), throwing sports, and tennis. The reason why spondylolysis is more common in athletes is due to their repeated hyperextension activities coupled with the rotation of the body.

What is the difference between Spondylolisthesis and Spondylylolysis?

Spondylolisthesis is forward slippage of one vertebra upon the other. The difference between a spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis is that in spondylolisthesis due to congenital factors or the results of premature wear and tear. Another difference is the forward slippage, which is more common in spondylolisthesis. However, forward slipped can also occur in spondylolysis, and in these cases, the condition is referred to as spondylolisthesis with a spondylolysis.

Fracture of the pars inter-articularis on both sides can result in spondylolisthesis, slipping of the vertebra over another segment. Spinal canal stenosis is more commonly seen in older patients, and they often complain of pain aggravated by walking and relieved by rest. Examination of the hip joint must be included for lower back patients as abnormalities of the hip joint such as labral tears, or joint contracture may present with signs and symptoms similar to lower back pain with radicular pain in the leg.

What are the Common Causes Spinal Disc Damage in Malaysia?

structures of spinal disc

<1>What Causes Spinal Disc to get Damage?

Spinal discs are made up of two structures; an inner part and the outer part. The inner part (nucleus pulposus) is considered the heart of the spinal disc. The nucleus pulposus is water, collagens, and proteoglycans. As such, it is a jell-like in structure. It is the main structures that provide mobility and weight-bearing. Another critical function of the nucleus pulposus is to synthesis vital compounds need for daily repairs of the spinal. The current fibers or part is called the annulus fibrosus. The annulus fibrosis is made of cartilage, which is firmer in structures when compared to the nucleus pulposus.

Spinal discs provide three vital functions:
  1. Attaches the bones of the spine (vertebrae) together
  2. Provides weight-bearing
  3. Allows mobility
Spinal discs are essential to functional spine segments or units. Functional spinal units contribute to the movements and provide stability and weight-bearing. A functional spinal unit consists of two adjacent spinal vertebrae and the intervertebral disc (spinal disc). Functional units or segments are further supported with surrounding soft tissues (e.g., ligaments) that connect them together.

What are the Characteristics of the Spinal Disc Structures?

As the nucleus pulposus is mostly made up of water, it can distribute forces evenly in all dimension when the weight is being placed on it. The annulus fibrosus contains layers of lamellae and collagen fibers. This multi-layered annulus fibrosus aligned in various angles provide the tensile strength and flexibility to the spinal columns. The cartilaginous endplates of the adjacent vertebrae are rich in microscopic blood vessels that supply nutrients to the spinal discs.

How are the Spinal Discs Damaged?

how a spinal disc gets damaged

Spinal disc damage occurs when the nucleus pulposus is unable to synthesize the need compounds for daily repairs and maintenance of the spinal discs. Your spinal discs need specialized compounds to maintain health. These are the proteoglycans. Proteoglycans are the chondroitin and glucosamine products that all joints, ligaments, and soft tissues need for repair and maintenance. These are abundant compounds that the body makes daily. They can also be supplemented. Proteoglycans are readily available in the blood. However, these are rather large compounds, and their size makes it difficult to penetrate into the disc. Therefore, the spinal discs have to make enough proteoglycans to maintain proper function and health. 

What are Preoteogylcans and how they can help with Damaged Spinal discs?

To make sufficient quantities of proteoglycans, the disc needs ample flow of nutrients. However, poor sitting postures, prolonged sitting, excessive bending or twisting at the waist increased the pressure inside the disc. With increased disc pressure, the flow of nutrients is decreased. The nutrient flow decreases, so do the spinal discs' ability to make the essential proteoglycans. As cush, the spinal disc starts to degenerate. A degenerated disc is a damaged disc. A damaged disc is the primary reason why you end with slipped discs in your neck, upper back, mid nack or the low back.

Damaged spinal discs can be treated without surgery. NSD Therapy® the best non-surgical treatment for damaged spinal disc and slipped disc. Call Chiropractic Specialty Center® at 03 2093 1000 to see if you qualify for NSD Therapy®.

What is the earliest stage at which a spinal disc gets damaged?

Spinal disc damage as such Degenerative changes in the intervertebral disc is shown to occur in the early decades of life. As the disc degenerates, there can be significant variations in the structures of the intervertebral disc, associated ligamentous damage and structural alterations in the spinal columns. These degenerative changes can lead to severe neck or back pain with or without radiculopathies such as numbness, tingling sensation, and weakness. If degenerative disc disease is not adequately cared for, it will lead to slipped disc.

Degenerative Disc Disease: Cause and Treatment in Malaysia

Degenerative Disc Disease

What causes Degenerative Disc Disease? 

Degenerative Disc Disease or DDD is caused when the accumulated stresses on the spine damage the inner structures of the spinal discs. Damage to the spinal disc structures occurs due to an increase in the hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure increases when blood flow is restricted or diminished. The video below will help you understand spinal disc health and how it gets damaged.

Spinal discs are the most essential of all components in your spine. They bear weight, sperate, and connect the spine together to provide you the mobility you need in your daily life. When spinal degree, they lead to tears and herniations. Degenerated discs also place enormous amounts of stress on your spinal joints and spinal muscles. The collective impact of a degenerated disc in your lower back can lead to paralysis. This article will provide an overview of degenerative discs disease to help you understand the cause of your lower back pain or leg pain in Malaysia. If you need more information on the back, pain, leg pain or spinal disc treatments, please call our main center at 03 2093 1000. Our corrective teams of chiropractors and physiotherapists are ready to help you reclaim your life from back pain, leg pain, and sciatica pain in Malaysia.

What is Degenerative Discs Disease and how it impacts your back?

Degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine is one of the most common causes that is associated with lower back pain. It has been shown that the degeneration and deterioration of the lumbar disc can lead to an asymptomatic lower back condition. Progressive degenerative disc disease can result in acute or chronic back pain with an associated clinical instability of the spinal segments. This can lead to abnormal spinal segmental movement, misalignment of the spinal joints, spinal stenosis.

The basis of initial evaluation involves plain radiographs (X-rays) of the lumbar spine. Reduced disc height and narrowing of the facet joints are common findings on the X-rays in degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis of the spine. Osteophytes and sclerosis of the upper and lower endplates are frequent radiographic findings for degeneration. Narrowing of the lateral recesses and the spinal canal can be visible on CT or MRI of the spine. Radial or concentric tears, cystic spaces, and disruption of the annulus fibrosus can be identified with MRI, which is showing better resolution for soft tissues.

Instability of the spine results in a lack of normal spinal segmental displacement pattern under physiologic loads. Hence, there is an increased risk of neurological deficits, incapacitating spinal deformity, and pain.

According to Kirkaldy-Willis and Farfan, there are three functional phases of degenerative disc disease:
  1.        Temporary dysfunction without instability;
  2.        Unstable phase;
  3.        Stabilization phase following calcification of ligaments.

During the early phases of degenerative disc disease, there is an increased microscopical structural deterioration resulting in an increased functional impairment.

What is the best treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease in Malaysia?

Stress Fracture and Foot Pain in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Foot Pain and Stree Fractures

Stress fractures are common causes of foot pain in Malaysia. To recover, you need a proper diagnosis that follows targeted treatments. Stress fractures are difficult to diagnose in initial stages as they may not readily be visible to x-rays. If you have difficulty putting weight on your foot, you may have a stress fracture. The most common cause of stress fractures is excessive walking in poor shoes, osteoporosis,s, or traumatic injuries. It is a common disorder in the elderly. In younger individuals, it is common among runner and walkers.

Treatment management of the metatarsal stress fractures should include a multi-modal approach addressing each component of the injury. Relative rest from weight-bearing exercises is required to prevent aggravation and re-injury of the stress fracture. An air cast may help reduce the pain if the patient needs to be in a weight-bearing position excessively. Exercises could be re-introduced gradually if the athlete experienced no pain while walking and no tenderness at the site of fracture. A progressive rehabilitation exercise program to return the athlete to full training and competition should be commenced as soon as possible without risking re-injury of the fracture. Foot orthoses may be needed to correct abnormal biomechanics in the joints of the foot. Unusual stress may be imposed on the foot if there is an instability in the bones of the foot.

Can Chiropractic Care Help Recovery from a Stress Fractures?

Chiropractic treatments are priceless when it comes to spine and joint treatment in Malaysia. However, stress fractures should not be treated through chiropractic care during the initial phase of healing. Once the fractures have been given ample time to heal, usually 4 weeks; chiropractic care can be helpful to regain proper joint alignment. Also, focused physiotherapy will provide stability for muscles and ligaments.

Chiropractic adjustment in Malaysia by our clinical teams of Chiorhpactros may help correct restricted joints and restore normal range of motion in the joints of the foot and ankle after the fracture has healed.

The video below provides an insight into what chiropractic is. Although, it dose not relate chiropractic care to foot pain; it will give a better understanding of what chiropractic is all about.

The fracture of the base of the second metatarsal affecting the joint is commonly seen in ballet dancers. The treatment for this injury should involve non-weight-bearing rest on crutches for about four to six weeks until the pain and tenderness subside. Chronic joint synovitis may present with similar signs and symptoms and is commonly confused with this fracture.

What to do for foot fractures of the fifth metatarsal

fracture of the fifth metatarsal

What should you do for a fracture of the fifth metatarsal?

There are three main sites where the fracture of the fifth metatarsal can occur. The uncomplicated avulsion fracture of the tuberosity at the base of the fifth metatarsal is commonly associated with an acute ankle sprain. If no other complications are resulting from the avulsion fracture, the pain can be relieved by a short period of immobilization.  

Jones’ fracture is the fracture of the shaft of the fifth metatarsal. This is an acute fracture, and it takes a longer time to recover. Patients usually involved with an inversion plantar-flexion injury, or this can be a result of overuse injury. Patients with a Jones’ fracture may need a non-weight-bearing cast immobilization of six to eight weeks to recover. Surgical fixation with the percutaneous insertion of a screw and bone grafting may be necessary if an immediate return to activity is required. Confirmation of full radiographic healing is recommended before returning to the sport to prevent re-fracture of the injury.

Fouette fracture is an acute spiral fracture of the distal third of the fifth metatarsal. This is commonly seen in dancers who went off-balance while on demi-pointe and rolled over the outer border of the foot. Non-complicated injury without the displacement of the fracture fragments can be treated with weight-bearing rest. Complicated displaced fractures may need non-weight bearing cast immobilization of four to six week to relieve the pain.

Physiotherapy rehabilitation of the foot and ankle may be required once the pain has subsided, and the injury has healed. The mobility of the joints must be maintained to prevent stiffness and joint restriction. Muscles in the foot and ankle need to be strengthened to provide sufficient stability at the joints. 

Chiropractic-in-Malaysia is happy to have provided this article for you. Should you have any questions about foot pain treatment in Malaysia, please contact us at 03-2093 1000: we offer you the best treatment from a clinical chiropractor in Malaysia.

Chiropractic Treatment for Upper Crossed Syndrome

upper crossed syndrome and neck pain

What is an Upper Crossed Syndrome and How Chiropractic Helps?

Upper crossed syndrome may involve neck pain with or without radicular pain into the upper limbs. Some patients may even complain of numbness or tingling sensation in the upper limb. Muscle imbalances as a result of prolonged static posture are one of the main cause that leads to pain and paresthesia. Patients commonly present with anterior head carriage and rounded shoulders. This can result in muscle tightness in the pectoralis muscles, the anterior chest muscles, and the suboccipital muscles near the base of the skull. Muscle weakness of the deep neck flexors and rhomboids or mid and lower trapezius is commonly found in a person with the upper crossed syndrome.

Treatment for upper crossed syndrome should include a multi-modal approach to addressing each and every component of the problem. This involves chiropractic treatment and physiotherapies, such as therapeutic rehabilitation exercises, manual therapy, ergonomic advice, and postural retraining. Joint mobilization or manipulation can improve segmental spinal mobility and reduce neck stiffness. Removing trigger points and release of tight muscles in the neck and upper back such as suboccipital muscles with myofascial release techniques help to improve neck and shoulder mobility. Stretching of the anterior chest muscles is important to prevent rounded shoulders.

Postural training plays a significant role in improving the signs and symptoms of the upper crossed syndrome. The treatment program should include re-education and correction of the cervical, thoracic, and scapular position. However, many health care providers often ignored the importance of postural training of the lumbar spine and pelvis, as this can affect the position of the thoracic spine and head as well. Taping may serve as an excellent tool in postural retraining.

Upper Crossed Syndrome and Neck Pain Treatment In Malaysia

upper crossed syndrome and posture

Neck Pain Caused by an Upper Crossed Syndrome

Upper crossed syndrome, or cervical postural syndrome usually presents with a typical posture of protruding chin and increased upper cervical lordosis. Patients often adopt the anterior head carriage posture with restricted thoracic extension, restricted shoulder movements, rounded shoulders, and tight anterior chest muscles. This is commonly seen in athletes who maintain a given position for a prolonged period. Cyclists, baseball catchers, and hockey players are more susceptible to this neck pain related to the upper crossed syndrome. This can happen in the workplace as people are working in front of the computer screen for prolonged hours with an incorrect posture. Painters and production line workers may have similar problems too. However, neck pain arising from the workplace can significantly be benefited from the ergonomic assessment.

What are the common symptoms of upper crossed syndrome?

The pain is typically aggravated after a prolonged period of static posture and is relieved by movements.

Examination of the neck normally reveals a restricted range of motion of the lower cervical and upper thoracic spine. The suboccipital muscles are usually tight and tender with the presence of trigger points. Muscle weaknesses are commonly found in the deep neck flexors, serratus anterior, mid and lower trapezius and rhomboid muscles. There may be increased neural tension in the peripheral nerves as the tight muscles are irritating the nerves.
