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

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.

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.
