Alternative Therapy for Spine Injury

In 1996, I (Sham) slipped and had a bad fall. I ended in a sitting position on the steps outside the house. My backbone hit the floor and the pain was excruciating. The impact caused my spine in the lumbar region to curve and a vertebra was misaligned. Most badly affected are the L4 and L5 vertebrae. Many sleepless nights followed and the pain ran all the way down to my right leg. I could not drive for a few months.

In 2001, I started going for chiropractic treatment at Life Chiropractic Centre, then in Burmah Road, Penang. The treatment provided temporary relief. Initially I visited the chiropractor (Mr Stephen Karner) every week. And, I also exercise regular by going for morning walks or cycling. As the years went by, the pain and discomfort eased off, but not gone completely. My visit to the chiropractor became less frequent, like every 10-12 weeks.

In 2012, a friend recommended us to seek treatment from a traditional chiropractor, Pak Lang in Kampung Sera, Baling. After just 2 sessions, not only the curvature on my spine was reduced significantly, but the discomfort and pain disappeared almost completely after a few days. Since then I no longer need to seek treatment at Life Chiropractic Centre. I visit Pak Lang may be twice a year for maintenance therapies.
