DO YOU TREAT MY CONDITIONS?

ACL INJURY OR MENICUS TEAR

Having a sense of the knee ‘giving way’ or ‘locking’ is a fairly common complaint by athletes who have twisted their knees in sports like basketball, netball, soccer or badminton. The sensation of ‘giving way’ is an indication that you might have a Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear or ACL tear, while the ‘locking’ sensation is an indication of a possible meniscus tear.

INVERSION ANKLE SPRAIN

The ankle is one of the most common sites for acute musculoskeletal injuries accounting for 75 percent of ankle injuries. Among athletes, ankle sprains are the most common injury yet they are so often mistreated or not treated at all. A consequence of this neglect is a lasting weakness, an unstable joint and repeated sprains.

LOWER BACK PAIN AND NECK PAIN

Lower Back Pain or Low Back Pain is a very common condition. Studies show that about 1 in every 5 Malaysians 1 suffer from back pain and neck pain, and you have some 80% chance of suffering from back pain and neck pain sometime during your lifetime.

TENSION (CERVICOGENIC) HEADACHE

Have you ever had the feeling that your headache is somehow related to the pain in your neck? How is it such a coincidence that every time your headache is preceded by the stiff neck that you are experiencing? You are not imagining it! It is what the medical community calls cervicogenic headaches, which means headaches originating from the neck.

DIASTASIS RECTI ABDOMINIS

Just when you thought that there was enough to screen for during pregnancy, this article tells you how important it is to keep an eye on the diastasis recti abdominis (Diastasis Recti Abdominis). It can affect a long list of secondary problems, more than just the appearance and general tone of a post natal mom’s tummy.

There are many types of shoulder conditions, but one in particular can creep up on you without you remembering having hurt it. This condition is called Adhesive Capsulitis, or more commonly known as Frozen Shoulder.

KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is a degenerative condition where the cartilage between the end of the thigh bone and the top of the calf bone wear away, forcing the bones to rub painfully against each other. Pain, stiffness and swelling are common symptoms of an OA knee.

MANUAL THERAPY

Manual techniques include manipulation and mobilisation. All physiotherapists are skilled in applying these techniques safely. For example, physiotherapists routinely assess the integrity of vertebral artery blood flow before considering an upper cervical high velocity thrust technique i.e. manipulation.

NECK PAIN

Can we predict those who are likely to have pain?
Spinal pain is the second largest cause of absence from work and the largest cause of loss of productivity in the workplace (Borenstein, 2004)

CERVICAL NERVE IMPINGEMENT

Cervical nerve impingement, otherwise known to physiotherapists as cervical radiculopathy, is a condition where a nerve root exiting the spinal canal in the cervical spine is impinged or irritated.

Scoliosis is described as a progressive 3-dimensional curvature of the spine into sideway bending and twisting with Cobb angle more than 10 degrees.

The first goal of treatment is to relieve pain by decreasing the muscle spasm.

One common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc or "slipped disc". The herniated disc protrudes and places pressure on the nerve root which connects to the sciatic nerve.

Imagine a tight rope being repeatedly rubbed over a rock, constantly snapping back and forth. Overtime, the fibers fray and eventually fail. This mechanism is similar to most degenerative tendon processes, including that of the Tennis Elbow.

A long-standing debate in pregnancy care is whether Low Back Pain or LBP is an inevitable process and allowed to resolve spontaneously or perhaps could be prevented. This article reviews the clinical presentation, practical treatment and management strategies for Low Back Pain during pregnancy for patients.

Whiplash is a common term for sudden acceleration-deceleration forced on the neck.
