Suffering from any of these conditions?
Neck pain is a very common condition associated with individuals who are office bound and their job description entails desk functions and computer work. Poor posture and sedentary lifestyle leads to joint and muscle stiffness and dysfunction. Another common symptom is numbness and a tingling sensation down the arm to the fingers. Chiropractic has shown excellent results in the treatment of neck pain and associated discomfort.
Back problems are one of the most common physical complaints among adults. Symptoms include: stiffness, aching, sharp localized pain, numbness and on occasion radiating pain to the legs. The causes could include: joint dysfunction, degeneration, disc problems and poor posture to name a few. Recent studies have shown that Chiropractic treatment for lower back pain provides faster results and is more cost effective than other health care approaches.
Knee and ankle pain are very common conditions. Common causes are degenerative joint disease, the incorrect biomechanics of the foot, flat feet, incorrect foot wear and high heels causing extra strain on the knee joint and surrounding soft tissues. Being both weight bearing joints the chances of injury are greater. Advanced Chiropractic knowledge of biomechanics, joint structure and muscles allow the Chiropractor to help many patients with knee and ankle pain.
Feet are a biological masterpiece. They need to withstand tremendous pressure during walking, jogging and sprinting.
Foot pain may be caused by many different conditions or injuries, such as sudden or repeated trauma or disease. Poor biomechanical alignment may also lead to foot pain. Wearing shoes that are too tight or high heels can cause pain around the balls of the feet and the bones in that area.
Flat feet are the most common condition and often goes unnoticed. Flat feet can be the cause of ankle and knee pain and even lower back pain. Flat feet are also a common cause of bunions (bony growth at the big toe).
Hip pain involves any pain in or around the hip joint. Hip-related pain is not always felt directly over the hip. Instead, you may feel it in the middle of your thigh. Similarly, pain you feel in the hip may actually reflect a problem in your back, rather than your hip itself. Bursitis and Hip Arthritis are common causes of hip pain.
Scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity in children. It is a sideways (lateral) curvature of the spine, in which the spinal column curves and twists, causing problems which can also affect the ribs and pelvis and when severe, even the internal organs.
Osteoporosis is an extremely common problem, currently affecting over half the population in Malaysia.
Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and brittle — so brittle that a fall or even mild stresses like bending over or coughing can cause a fracture. Osteoporosis is a potential health risk for those who fall into the geriatric age group, as they often suffer with concomitant health issues. Hip fractures are one of the more serious consequences of osteoporosis, however other complications can include chronic pain, disability and diminished quality of life.
Injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints often occur during sporting activities. Some injuries can lead to chronic problems. Early treatment and rehabilitation is essential. Sport injuries include: sciatica, tennis & golfers elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, sprained ankle, tendonitis, bursitis, meniscus tears, trigger finger, frozen shoulder and impingement syndrome (rotator cuff).
Poor posture results from certain muscles tightening up or shortening while others lengthen and become weak, which often occurs as a result of one’s daily activities. There are different factors that can impact on posture and they include occupation activities and biomechanical factors such as force and repetition. An example of this would be working at a computer all day long.
Headaches are one of the most common symptoms from which people suffer, and come in a number of varieties – migraine, tension, sinus, cervicogenic, myofascial to name but a few. Regardless of the type, they can be a debilitating and downright annoying condition.
Whatever the underlying cause, chiropractic, rehabilitative exercises and postural correction can provide much relief.
