Back Pain

What is Back Pain?

Back pain is a common condition in Malaysia that affects people of all genders, ages, and backgrounds. It can be described as discomfort, stiffness, or soreness in the upper, middle, or lower back.

We understand the impact back pain has on your daily life. At Renew Chiropractic Centre, our main goal is to improve your body function at its optimal level, reduce back pain, and enhance flexibility and mobility through targeted chiropractic care.

Signs and Symptoms Associated With Back Pain:

It is important to recognize the signs and symptoms asssociated with back pain to seek the right treatment in a timely manner. The symptoms may include:

  • Soreness and fatigue
  • Pulling pain or tightness
  • Sharp or shooting pain down the leg
  • Numbness in the legs, buttock, or thigh

What Causes Back Pain?

Back pain can be caused by various factors, and it is crucial for us to determine the root cause to provide effective treatment. Common causes include:

  1. Slipped Disc (Lumbar Herniated Disc): The disc within the spine acts like a watery cushion to absorb shock. When the disc herniates, it may put pressure on the nerve, causing sciatica (numbness or pain down the leg).
  2. Degenerative Joint Disease: Also known as osteoarthritis or “wear and tear” within the spinal joints. It may cause joint stiffness and limited range of motion, leading to morning back pain.
  3. Poor Posture: Improper posture during activities such as sitting, standing, sleeping, or heavy lifting over an extended period can strain back muscles, leading to microtrauma in muscles, joints, or ligaments.
  4. Previous Injury: Untreated injuries from the past, such as falls, strains, car accidents, sports injuries, can result in inflammation within spinal joints and surrounding tissues, leading to scar tissue accumulation over time.
  5. Scoliosis: A sideway and rotational bending of the spine, may cause uneven pressure to the spinal joints, muscles and nerve. Scoliosis typically starts in childhood or adolescence but can also be caused by degenerative changes in the spine during adulthood.

How Can Chiropractic Help Manage Back Pain?

At Renew Chiropractic, we offer a comprehensive approach to back pain treatment through safe and effective chiropractic care. Our chiropractors use various services and techniques, which may include:

  • Consultation and Assessment: Before any treatment, our chiropractors conduct a one-to-one consultation and comprehensive assessment to understand your unique condition. This may include postural assessment, orthopedic tests, static palpation, motion palpation, muscle testing, X-ray imaging analysis, and more to formulate a personalized treatment plan.
  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Our chiropractors use hands to perform specific high-speed yet gentle thrusts to the spine and joints to restore and enhance communication between the nervous system and the body.
  • Trigger Point Therapy:  Targeting sensitive tight knots that develop over time, this therapy aims to release muscle knots, restoring original length and strength.
  • Dry Needling:  Using thin needles to stimulate trigger points within the neck and shoulder, causing muscle twitch responses and promoting muscle relaxation.
  • Exercise and Rehabiliation: Customized exercise programs recommended to target specific muscles and strengthen core muscles, preventing pain relapses.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Expert advice on ergonomics, orthotics, nutrition, and stress management to address contributing factors.
