Conversation with the chiropractor
What are some of the most common work-related injuries you see? And how do you treat them?
The most common work-related injuries relate to what is called Repetitive strain injuries. This can vary from Lower back pain, neck pain or wrist pain. The secret to treatment is to be able to identify the cause of the problem. This may be related to ergonomics or to the biomechanical changes but usually it is a combination of both.
Treatment is based on correcting or removing the underlying cause. What makes our treatment different is that we customize the treatment to the individual.
We have a list of specialized treatments such as Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression and Shockwave therapy that we employ in our treatments.
We also have a customized rehabilitation program that we provide our patients with.
And we advise on Ergonomics.
What is the common spine related problems for children among your patients? And is there some advice you can give to concerned parents?
Scoliosis, Flat feet and Posture changes.
“Bend the tree while it is young’ My advice it to identify and treat these problems a.s.a.p.
Parents need to look at Chiropractic like Dentistry. Children should visit the Chiropractor for a check-up at least once every 6 months.
How do you feel about the awareness of ergonomics here in Malaysia?
Very low unfortunately. As an example, Malaysian society places more emphasis on grades. School bags are often overloaded, and children spend additional hours sitting after school for tuition, as apposed to spending time being physically active. This all contributes to poor posture and could lead to more serious complications. However, there is little to no consideration for the health of the child.
Simple changes can be making a world of difference. This includes corrective orthotics, ergonomic school bags, ergonomic desk and chairs, ergonomic education and just getting some exercise.
Why do you recommend using ergonomic furniture?
Most physical problems have an underlying cause. In todays modern world we spend too much time at our desk and using computers, etc. If the furniture we use is part of the underlying causes it is only logical that we fix this. Its also easier to change your chair then to quit your job.

The people at Ergoland is also very knowledgeable on health matters relating to ergonomics and is actively working on making a difference in people’s lives which is something that resonates with me.
