Thank you for reading this article.
Back pain, slipped disc. bone spur, etc etc..
How true are they?
WELL, let's listen to what BENPHYSIO says..
BEN stands for Biomechanic, Effective treatment, and Non Conventional Physiotherapy.
Our goal is to INTRODUCE to the community,
that WE ARE DIFFERENT.
Physiotherapy is NOT only TENS, Ultrasound.
We specialised in Manual Therapy,
Myofascial Release technique.
We are No#1 Manual PhysioTherapy in Malaysia.
Sciatica / Low Back Pain / Piriformis Pain / Hamstring Tight
- Low back pain, can be centralised, or one sided
- Pain runs down to one leg (either front thigh, side of the thigh, or behind the thigh) (Shown in
- Pain in deep buttock (sitting bone)
- Leg(s) cramp / tight
Often associated with “slipped disc”, “bone spur”, ''spondylosis'', ''hamstring strain'', ''piriformis syndrome'', etc. In Ben Physio, we do not look at 'slipped disc', 'spondylosis', 'bone spur' as your problem(s).
Also, often related to piriformis syndrome, a typical pain near to sitting bone. (See picture above) Sometimes, the pain does run downwards as well.
We only diagnosed as Sciatica if the symptom runs down at the middle of the back thigh. Vice versa, they are not sciatica.
We use biomechanical approach to explain the mechanism of nerve impingement, slipped disc, bone spur formation, hamstring / piriformis syndrome. Patient can comprehend easier their problem, and able to self-help whenever the pain attacks.
Do not sit too straight at desk.
Strained / Sprained back
Aching / nagging pain / soreness at lower back
Pain can be at the centre
Difficult to turn on the bed
Unable to bend / straighten / move the back
Coughing makes back pain worse
It is often misunderstood as lumbar sprain / strain where pain medication or injection with rest is the only way to relieve the pain or ‘inflammation’.
There are predisposing factors that make this lumbar strain / sprain more likely to happen and recur. It is always related to one’s posture, predominance of movement pattern which lead to muscle cramp at the back.
We analyse and identify the mechanism and root cause of this problem to treat and prevent the recurrence.
Scoliosis / Crooked Spine
Different shoulder / hip level
Visible one-sided hump at the shoulder blade / back
Prominent rib on one side
Head shifted to one side
Pain on neck / shoulder / back / buttock
Severe cases can have breathing problems
It is more commonly occurred in female during childhood and adolescence. However, it happens in other age groups and male too. It can only be treated by wearing braces or surgery.
Scoliosis is a three-dimensional bio-mechanical deformity that happens in three planes of the spine. We use our diagnostic system to explain and treat the deviation in accordance to body ache, dominance and compensation.
Reduction of the curvature and prevention of further worsening are our concern.
