A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools.

~ Spanish proverb

Are you one of the busy mechanics that have forgotten about taking care of your tools? Have your body been sending you some signals saying that they require a checkup for you to continue fulfilling dreams?

Pain, which in most of times seem to be quite common among us, yet we are so oblivious of it could be an early sign of something that is detrimental to our health. There are many spinal conditions that people are facing in this hectic lifestyle and one of the most common condition that affects our patients is Slipped Disc, or also known as Herniated Disc or Prolapsed Disc. It occurs when the soft inner portion of the disc protrudes through the outer ring and causing pain, numbness, tingling of symptoms to the patients. According to the statistics, the cost of a herniated disc surgery can go up thousands of dollars, varying by country as follow:

So the questions is:


Slipped Disc and Sciatica – How do they happen and what can be done with them?

The good news is, there are already preventative and alternative treatments available worldwide that are non-invasive, non-surgical that are beneficial to the slipped disc patients on their road of recovery.

According to the Swiss Study published by Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, 90.5% of the patients with confirmed lumbar disc herniation patients were improved after 3 months while 88% experiencing improvement in their back condition after one year after undergoing Chiropractic Care.1 But most importantly, you must be careful to seek out Corrective Chiropractic care that will refrain and get the corrected spinal curvatures back.

Success Stories


Disc Herniation

Disc Herniation

Slipped Disc

Mr. Lim visited our centre after being introduced by his brother. He was limping with every steps he took when I first met him. It was a case of “slipped disc” with the involvement of nerve impingement.

His MRI report shows large disc herniation at L4/5 level with narrowing of the spinal canal. Also, a disc protusion at L5/S1 touching on S1 nerve root. His hope was to recover from his symptoms and avoid spinal surgery, which was suggested to him as the only option by an Orthopaedic Surgeon. We disagree that and accepted the case and treated him for a month.

Treatment includes chiropractic spinal manipulation, spinal traction, TENS, and other manual therapy approach. Of course, he was also very diligent in completing his postural exercises, and following our suggested treatment protocol. His progress is illustrated as here for your reference. We wish to educate that spinal surgery is often not the only option for “slipped disc”, and conservative spinal rehabilitation is as effective if not more to alleviate the signs and symptoms.

Most importantly, you don’t have to go under the knife.
