Chiropractic treatments vary from center to center. Some offer manual methods of chiropractic. Others may provide an instrument-assisted form of chiropractic technique. Both have advantages and disadvantages. For starters, the manual way is suitable for younger patients and those who do not have any degenerative changes or injuries. Also, the manual methods may not help injured joints, sciatica, spondylosis, degenerated spinal discs, and slipped discs (bulging discs or herniated discs).

What is the most aspect of your chiropractic treatment is the chiropractor! Finding a good chiropractor should be the first step. There are signs that you can look for. These signs will help you identify a good chiropractor. Once you have a good chiropractor, then you can look at the type of care they give. Slipped discs and sciatica are challenging conditions that need chiropractic and physiotherapy. Good chiropractors often work with physiotherapists. Their combined efforts get you better faster.

The instrument-assisted chiropractic treatment is through a device called the Activator. The Activator Method is the most research method of chiropractic treatment. It is the best option for kids and adults. It should be the only option for joint pain, sports injuries, arthritis, sciatica, scoliosis and slipped disc.

Chiropractic treatment through an activator is better targeting, allowing the chiropractor to provide the patient with precision chiropractic treatment.

We will familiarize you with the different types of chiropractic treatment our center offers and what the competing center do. However, before we start on the topic of treatments and chiropractic, we will cover the most relevant information on the profession of chiropractic and the differences among chiropractors.

Illustrating the aim of chiropractic treatment

What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractors focus on holistic musculoskeletal system treatments with particular attention to the nervous system. In short, chiropractic treatment improves the nervous system, muscles, ligaments, spinal discs, cartilage, bones, and joints. It offers the most comprehensive methods of spine, joints, scoliosis, and sports injury treatments. The hallmark of chiropractic treatment is an adjustment. Contrary to the common belief, an “Adjustment” is not just for the spine and joints; any joint in the body, as well as the muscles and ligaments (soft tissue).

Dr. Daniel David Palmer gave the first chiropractic treatment in 1895. Since the profession has continually grown, chiropractic treatment is the number one non-surgical treatment method for back pain, slipped disc, and joint pain patients. Chiropractic Specialty Center® started operation in 2007. We have treated over 15,000 patients successfully. Our combined physiotherapy and chiropractic care have enabled Malaysians to recover from pain or injury without medication, injections, or surgery.

Excerpt from the Spine Journal on Chiropractic treatment

Research On The Effectiveness Of Chiropractic Treatment

A D.C. or Doctor of Chiropractic is your best hope for holistic non-surgical recovery from the spine and joint disorders or injuries. Published research in Europe, Asia, and the United States confirm the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment. The most reputable medical journals have published reports from medical doctors that report chiropractors’ procedures to be more effective than medication, surgery, and physiotherapy combined. Reasons for clinical success are the holistic nature of care given to a patient.

A chiropractor’s focus on the musculoskeletal and nervous system’s health and well-being is the driving force to successful clinical outcomes for acute and chronic low back pain, neck pain, and joint pain.

In short, our treatment options will improve joint mobility, soft tissues, spinal mobility, the nervous system, and the musculoskeletal systems combined. Our goals are to reduce pain and improve function by treating the cause.

Are There Differences In Chiropractic Treatment?

Healthcare, in general, is a combination of art and science. Scientific knowledge and the application of such knowledge in varying health conditions often differ between practitioners. The hallmark of the care provided is an adjustment. Targeted joint or spine treatments from chiropractors can improve spinal mobility, reduce pain, and improve both the nervous systems’ functioning as well as the musculoskeletal system. There are differences between chiropractors; some use breakthrough devices, while others only offer manual therapies. These differences are critical to your recovery.

Our doctors of chiropractic provide both manual therapies and treatment options through breakthrough devices such as RxDecom®. Furthermore, they combine their clinical knowledge and expertise with our physiotherapists. In short, the level of holistic treatment options provided by our clinical teams gets you better faster.

Are There DIfferances In Chiropractic Adjustments Between Practitioners?

An adjustment is based on scientific facts but influenced by the art or practitioner providing the change. The art of chiropractic adjustment is the cornerstone of the second most noticeable difference between professionals. As mentioned earlier, the profession is the branch of healthcare targeting proper neuromusculoskeletal health. In other words, a chiropractor concentrates on getting your nervous system, muscles, ligaments, spinal discs, cartilage, bones, and joints to work better as a whole.

How Is The Chiropractic Treatment Given?

Spine and Joint chiropractic treatment shown

The form of chiropractic care you get depends on the chiropractor you visit. For the most part, the treatment you get is dependent on the practitioners’ knowledge, skills, and areas of expertise. Some chiropractors use manual or hands-on methods of adjustments. Others may provide the adjustment through an instrument. The chiropractic Specialty Center® provides both the hands-on (manual) techniques and the instrument-assisted systems (activator method).

Moreover, our chiropractors offer combined treatment with physiotherapists. Our combined and integrative methods deliver faster results for lasting relief. To summarize, the chiropractic treatment you get from us is better as it includes physiotherapy and therapies through breakthrough technology.

The combined effort of our chiropractors and physiotherapists are enriched with advanced technology

It is not just the collaborative care that makes us better, but how we treat you. Our clinical teams and technology allow us to provide you with the best chiropractic treatment center in Malaysia.

Typically, a chiropractor has various techniques for adjustments (manipulation of the spine and joint). However, before an adjustment, a clinical practitioner will thoroughly evaluate your condition. The type of adjustment you receive may involve manual methods (Gonstead technique, Thompson, or Diversified technique).

In most cases, we use an instrument called an “Activator” to adjust and treat patients. If you are our patient, rest assured; the care you get from us is highly targeted and based on an accurate diagnosis of a complete recovery. We use the best activator methods in treating the spine, joints, scoliosis, and sports injuries in our centers.

The “Hands-On” Chiropractic Treatment (Manual Methods) Has Been Around Since The Inception Of Chiropractic In 1895.

It is also the most common method utilized. However, in recent years, the profession has seen a rise in instrumentally assisted adjustments. One reason for this growth in instrumented chiropractic care is the increase in complicated spine and joint conditions that present to chiropractors. Another reason is a better understanding of the mechanisms of malfunction and injury.

The “hands-on” method is provided in either a seated, supine, or prone position for the neck pain patient. The actual chiropractic treatment of the neck is given through a gentle to the site of malfunction to mobilize, realign and reposition the neck bones. Some methods of chiropractic care incorporate rotatory or twisting of the neck. The rotatory methods include the Divrsiefed and the Gonstead method of chiropractic treatment. The hands-on method is not a painful or uncomfortable procedure when correctly performed. However, some may be slightly startled by the “popping” noise, which they may hear. 

For the low back pain patient, the manual methods (hands-on) are provided with the patient is in a supine, prone, or side-lying position.  The Gonstead chiropractor & the Diversified technique are provided in a die-lying position. The S.O.T. and the Meric techniques are examples of chiropractic care given in prone (face-down position). The Activator chiropractic treatment is the most versatile of all. It can be given for the low back pain patients in seated, prone, and side-lying positions. This versatility is essential, especially for those in severe pain, expecting mothers, or complicated conditions. 

The Gonstead Chiropractic Treatment & Other Rotatory Or Twisting Methods

The “popping” is due to the release of the gasses that is a typical by-product of joint metabolism. For the lower back pain patient, the “hands-on” method of spinal adjustment through the Gonstead technique occurs when the patient is lying face down, on their side, or in a seated position. Joint adjustments are always dependent on the joint and area in need. Regardless of which area we treat, the treatment you get from us not be painful or uncomfortable. Hence our motto: No Pain More Gain.

One of the more common methods of manual or hands-on methods of treatment is the Gonstead method. The Gonstead technique is an excellent system for the general mobilization of the spine. However, we do not utilize this method for herniated discs, bulging discs, prolapsed, or ruptured discs (slipped discs), damaging the spinal disc more. The Activator method provides better targeting and the least stressful of all techniques; therefore, making it the best treatment option for the elderly, slipped disc patients, new mothers, and expecting mothers.

Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe For The Elderly?

Chiropractic treatment is safe for any age when provided correctly with proper technique. Most industrialized nations consider 65 as the age for the elderly. Aside from spine & joint pains, hypertension, diabetes, and elevated arteriosclerosis (plaquing of arteries due to increased cholesterol levels) are common health complaints among the elderly. The Activator Method & the S.O.T. technique are the safest chiropractic treatments for the elderly. Patients with hypertension and arteriosclerosis must avoid rotatory methods of chiropractic such as the Gonstead & Diversified techniques. 

Is Chiropractic Safe For Hypertensive Pateints?

Pateints with hypertension should avoid any rotatory method of care regardless of age. The best chiropractic treatment methods for hypertensive patients are the S.O.T. and the Activator Methods, as there are no rotatory components associated with these two techniques. Also, a placebo-controlled study at the University of Chicago reported improvement of hypertension with chiropractic treatment of the upper neck (Atlas or C-1) through a non-rotatory method of chiropractic treatment. 

Is Chiropractic Safe For Pregnancy?

New and expecting mothers can res assured, chiropractic treatment is safe for pregnancy. New and expecting mothers who suffer from aches and pains in their neck, upper back, mid-back, and lower back can get treated with CSC’s evidence-based methods that are safe for new and expecting mothers. back pain and pregnancy is all too common, let our teams provide you with the safest method of care. Joint pain and joint swelling is also common.

Prenatal and postnatal wrist pain, hand pain, foot, and ankle issues are treatable.De Quervains tenosynovitis is extremely common. De Quervain causes swelling and pain at the wrist and thumb joints. Talk with us now for lasting relief. 

Chiropractic treatment is perfectly safe for new and expecting mothers. However, best to avoid the rotatory methods such as Gonstead and the Diversified. Elevated hormone levels during pregnancy and breastfeeding are the reasons for avoidance of Gonstead and Diversified techniques. Relaxin is a hormone that increases during pregnancy and stays elevated for 6-months post-delivery. Also, the Relaxin hormone levels stay elevated past the 6-months in mothers who breastfeed. Visit our blog article to read more on Relaxin,  prenatal & postnatal chiropractic care we provide at our physio & chiro-zones. 

Relaxin prepares your body for pregnancy, delivery, mild production, and milk let-down. As the name applies, Relxain relaxes soft tissue. Therefore, the joints and spines of pregnant and breastfeeding women become hypermobile due to the increased flexibility of supporting joint ligaments. Rotary methods and the hands-on chiropractic treatment system, including the Thompson methods, may not be suitable.

Comparative Reviews Of Chiropractic Techniques For Pregnancy

Gonstead Chiropractor treats patients on a knee-chest bench or while the patient is in a side-lying position. The Gonstead knee-chest bench is only used for the lower back. The knee-chest chiropractic table is given with the patient on their knees while the headrests of support. The Gonstead chiropractor then delivers a gentle hands-on manual thrust of the lower spine of the pregnant patient. A Gonstead chiropractor treats the neck in either seated or supine position.

Although the method is touted by Gonstead chiropractors, both the lower back (on the knee-chest bench) and the neck treatments (in supine or seated positions) are better than the Diversified technique but not as safe as the Activator Methods. 

Diversified Chiropractor treats all patients in the same manner. Meaning, the chiropractic treatment is given through the DIversified technique is either supine (with patients face up or on their back), prone (lying on stomach), or lying on one side with the knee flexed towards the chest. Diversified technique is a safe method but not recommended for the elderly, spinal disc herniations, and pregnancy.

Activator Method Chiropractor treats patients in seated, supine, prone, or side-lying positions. It is gentle, non-force, and non-rotatory chiropractic care that is safe for all ages and conditions, including pregnancy and breastfeeding. With Chiropractic Specialty Center® provides a safe, effective alternative to the hands-on method and the rotatory chiropractic care system. For our prenatal and postnatal patients, we use the aviator methods of chiropractic treatment. 

If you are an expecting mother, new mother, or breastfeeding mother Avitaot Method of chiropractic treatment is the safest & most effective. At CSC, our prenatal & postnatal care and services are provided through the combined efforts of our award-winning chiropractors and physiotherpsits.

Benefits Of The Gonstead technique & Other General Methods Of Spinal Mobilization Or Adjustments

The Gonstead technique, Thompson methods, and Diversified techniques are great general or global means of spinal adjustments. In our centers, we use global adjustments when only mobility is needed. We never use global methods (Gonstead techniques or Diversified techniques) for complicated conditions as a precaution. The Gonstead technique and Diversified techniques are rotatory global or general spinal manipulation methods. The patient is in a side-lying position during the Gonstead and Diversified methods. A gentle thrust is then applied as the chiropractor rotates the spine. 

To rotational component of the Gonstead technique can irritate and even damage a herniated or ruptured spinal disc as the disc can break loose and fragment. A thoroughly fragmented disc can cause immediate loss of bowel and bladder control, as well as paralysis! In short, the risks of complications are relatively higher, with manual adjustments administered with patients lying on one side.

CSC’s clinical teams will not use methods that could aggravate a spinal disc or joint issue. At our centers, bulging, herniated, ruptured, and extruded spinal discs treatments are through non-rotatory chiropractic and physiotherapy methods. The best of the non-rotatory techniques is the Activator method of chiropractic adjustments.

Is the Activator Method Of Chiropractic Treatment The Best Of All Methods?

Activator chiropractic treatment of the spine shown

The activator method of treatment is the best and most researched method of adjustment. Unlike manual rotational processes, there are no “popping” sounds. Also, the “Activator” adjustment through an Activator instrument is comfortable and non-painful. The clinical benefits of an activator treatment are far superior to the manual or other methods. Activator produces faster recovery, especially if the patient suffers from spinal disc disorder, arthritis, or joint instabilities. We have also found the Activator instrument better for sports-related injuries, slipped disc, scoliosis, TMD (jaw pain), rotator cuff syndrome, knee pain, hip, shoulder, and foot injuries.

Excerpt from British Journal on chiropractic treatment shown

Our past experiences and the research published in the Activator instrument are why we prefer the Activator to many other manual spinal adjustment methods. Thus, when you visit one of our centers, you can rest assured that the treatment you get is precise and non-painful. As advanced as the Activator method of adjustment are, there may be times when a patient requires more manual means of care. In those instances, we may choose to enhance your recovery through a “Drop-Table Adjustment,” “SOT Block,” or the suitable old-fashioned manual method. Our ultimate aim is to get you better faster.

A peer-reviewed publication reported that the Activator method of chiropractic treatment is the preferred chiropractic treatment by experienced chiropractors. Call our center today and get the most out of your therapy. We have the top chiropractors in Malaysia. The best method of chiropractic treatment for neck pain is through the Activator Methods. It is a painless, non-force & non-rotatory method safe for the elderly, hypertensive, and during pregnancy.

Maximizing The Benefits Of An Adjustment

A chiropractor is your best alternative to medication or surgery. The level of care you get from a research-based chiropractor is better than physiotherapy and medicine. However, there are differences between practitioners, and these differences do impact the rate of your recovery. For starters, getting treatments without an accurate clinical diagnosis is wasteful at best. The first and foremost critical aspect of an adjustment is the identification of all root causes. In other words, if your chiropractor has not identified all causes, your recovery will be limited, and you may suffer in pain. In such circumstances, patients notice a mild-to-moderate amount of improvements but never a complete recovery.

Our Difference In Spine & Joint Care

The most significant difference between us and others is our integrative therapy options and technology. Our manual therapy methods for acute and chronic neck pain, back pain, and joint conditions get better results. Our centers offer the best treatments for acute or chronic low back pain, neck pain, joint pain, scoliosis, and slipped disc. However, it is not just our targeted methods that differ. Our skills, knowledge, and abilities to accurately diagnose health conditions are second to none.

What Is The Link between An Accurate Diagnosis & Thorough Recovery?

Establishing a treatment plan requires a diagnosis. If your diagnosis is accurate and encompasses all root causes, and if your treatment plan includes targeted treatments based on your condition, recovery is easy. An accurate diagnosis is a critical pillar of the care you get from our centers. Our research-based clinical teams have the experience, knowledge, and technology to accurately diagnosis and formulate the best holistic treatments. Our targeted methods of treatment are evident in our clinical successes. We are the only non-surgical center with a proven method of slipped disc treatment that reverses a slip-disc.

We have highlighted this point because treating a slipped disc is difficult and requires a highly advanced understanding of the spine. Treating a severe slipped disc is even more challenging. Repair and reversal of a slipped disc cannot happen unless you have an accurate diagnosis and an outstanding clinical team and technology to target, repair, and cure the slipped disc. We have done that; our proven slipped disc treatment is the best testament to our skills, knowledge, and technology.

We encourage you to visit our center before opting for spine surgery. Spine surgery fails too often. Let our teams provide you with alternative care that has lasting improvements. Visit CSC today for chiropractic treatment by the best chiropractors in KL.
