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 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.

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.
