Neck and back pain shown

Why should you avoid sitting if you suffer from back pain?

Prolonged sitting is the leading cause of lower back pain in Malaysia today. Lower back pain is the number one cause of disability in persons under the age of 50. The most Sitting over a prolonged period is one of the most critical factors that aggravate the lower back condition. Most of the Malaysians are adopting the sedentary lifestyle, which involves a lot of sitting. Most people spend about 75% of the time in a day in a seated position. Malaysians are trained to sit since our younger age. We spend at least 15 years sitting in the classroom for studies if not more. The lectures may last from 30 minutes to 2 hours for each subject, and school kids spend 6 to 8 hours in the school almost every day.

The impact of your work environment on the spine

The working environment for adults is actually creating more issues that are affecting the health of our spine. Long hours of desk work or computer work, prolonged sitting for meetings, and extended driving are causing continuous damage to the spine. Repeated injury to the spinal disc over a prolonged period can cause severe spinal problems and severe pain in the lower back or lower limbs.

The weight of our body transmitted to the spinal disc in the lower back will increase tremendously in a seated position when compared to standing or lying down. This is causing a lot of stress and continuous damage to the lowest segments in the lumbar spine. If this repeated damage occurs every day over the years, the spinal discs are unable to recover properly. This can lead to serious spinal disc problems that can present as lower back pain and pain and/or paraesthesia that radiates into the lower limbs.

Jaw Treatment and Exercises for TMJ Pain in Malaysia

Jaw pain treatment in Malaysia

What is the best exercise for Jaw Pain

Place one to two fingers on both sides of your jaw. Apply a gentle pressure against the jaw while trying to open the mouth slowly without letting it clicks. Repeat the exercise again if the jaw clicks in the middle of the procedure. Repeat this exercise without clicking of the jaw for 10 times. This exercise allows better control of your jaw movements, and the gentle pressure applied helps to correct the jaw misalignment.

Another exercise that can increase the mobility of the jaw while allowing better rotation of the jaw. Place the tongue against the roof of your mouth and slowly open your mouth as wide as you can. Hold for 2 seconds while breathing in slowly. However, the tongue should remain in contact with the roof of your mouth throughout the whole exercise. Repeat the exercise 10 times.

Strengthening exercises for the jaw muscles are needed to make sure the temporomandibular joint has the stability and mobility to perform all the movements required. Isometric strengthening exercises can strengthen the jaw muscles while relaxing the muscles on the opposite side. Make a fist and place it under your chin. Open your mouth slowly while the fist is applying a gentle upwards force under the chin. This upwards force should resist the opening of the mouth. Hold the pressure for 10 seconds. Repeat this exercise for 10 times.

The next exercise is similar to the one described above. Place the left hand on the left side of your face. Move your jaw to the left side against the left hand while applying a gentle force to the right with your left hand. Hold for 10 seconds and repeat the procedure on the right side.

The two ypes of spine and joint treatment in Malaysia

Opt for the best Spine and Joint Treatment Center in Malaysia

The conservative management of a musculoskeletal injury should include a multi-modal treatment program that may consist of chiropractic care and physiotherapy to address different aspects of the injury. The initial treatment approach involves pain management and preventing further damage to the injured structures and tissues. This part of the treatment program may give the patient a pain-free period while able to return to activities of daily living. However, the rehabilitation exercises in the latter part of the treatment program are needed so that the patient can return more aggressive sports injury and prevent reoccurrence of the same condition.

Rehabilitation is necessary after musculoskeletal injuries and post-surgery. Rehabilitation allows a patient or athlete to return to vigorous activities of daily living or sports with full function in the shortest possible time. If rehabilitation after a musculoskeletal injury is not done correctly, the damaged site may be re-injured again easily. Other than that, the joints or soft tissues adjacent to the injured site are at a higher risk of injury as the patient may compensate with other parts of the body to perform the activities. An athlete may not be performing at his or her best state or even may not be able to perform at their pre-injury standard.

Spinercise is a device designed specifically for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, especially for lower back and knee injuries. Spinercise helps to strengthen the specific muscles required to provide stability to the joints.

Causes of Neck Pain and Cervical Myelopathy in Malaysia

Neck pain

Best Neck Pain Treatment in Malaysia

Neck pain is a common condition in Malaysia. It is second only to lower back pain. The most severe neck issues are the one that results from spinal cord compression. The most common cause of spinal cord compression is neglect of neck pain.

Compression of the spinal cord in the cervical spine that results in motor and sensory dysfunction affecting the upper extremities is known as cervical myelopathy. Sometimes a severe compression of the spinal cord at the cervical region can also cause motor and sensory deficient in the lower extremities and disrupt the bowel and bladder function. Degenerative changes in the cervical spine can cause severe cervical myelopathy. There are a few causes that lead to compression of the spinal cord in the cervical region. Narrowing of the spinal canal where the spinal cord is located due to degenerative processes or congenital causes can cause cervical myelopathy. Ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament or calcification of the ligamentum flavum can result in spinal cord compression. Posterior bony osteophytes arising from the vertebral bodies and uncinated processes can cause narrowing of the spinal canal. Disc herniation or slip disc in the neck is another common cause for cervical myelopathy.

Degenerative changes of the lower cervical spine are more common and can cause more significant signs and symptoms in the affected region. C5/C6 and C4/C5 are the two most common levels affected by degenerative processes in the cervical spine. Spondylosis of the facet joint or hypertrophy of the facet joints can be a cause of spinal canal stenosis and cervical myelopathy. However, the presence of spondylosis or hypertrophy of the facet joints only rarely causes spinal cord compression. There may be other factors that are causing spinal cord compression at the same time.

Where can you get the best treatment for cervical myelopathy or neck pain in Malaysia?

Treating neck pain caused by cervical myelopathy is no easy task. It requires expertise, knowledge, and advanced therapy methods. Cervical myelopathies lead to nerve damage and paralysis if ignored. A most common cause is bone spurs and slipped discs. Bone and spurs and slipped discs can be treated without surgery.

Caused of Knee Pain after Sports Activity in Malaysia

Acute knee Injury in Malaysia

Non-surgical Knee Injury Treatment in Malaysia

Acute knee pain is widespread. It can occur during sports, especially football, basketball, netball, and alpine skiing. These activities involve a lot of twisting around the knee joint and sudden changes of direction. These movements will put additional stress on the knee joint if there is insufficient muscle strength to support the knee. Acute knee injuries can be disastrous for athletes as they can lead to disability, time off sport, and recurrent injuries.

The knee actually involves two different joints that are located very close to each other. The tibiofemoral joint consists of the thigh bone (femur) and the leg bone (tibia).  This tibiofemoral joint is commonly referred to as the knee joint. Medial and lateral collateral ligaments, anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments and the meniscus that is associated with the tibiofemoral joint are the primary stabilizers of this joint. The patellofemoral joint consists of the knee cap (patellar) and the thigh bone (femur). The stability of the joint comes from the medial reticulum and the patellar tendon/ligament.

Each and every ligament associated with the knee and the meniscus play a different role to provide stability to the joint. Therefore understanding the mechanism of injury during history taking can provide crucial information to find out the most likely injured structures in the knee. However, there will be damage to multiple associated structures when there is ligamentous damage in the knee. A holistic treatment approach for knee pain that involves ligamentous injury should also address the other related structures.
