MBA Chiropractic FAQ
Having seen a wide variety of cases in Petaling Jaya and Damansara Jaya, here is a list of frequently asked questions.
If I do yoga or pilates, then I don't need to see a chiropractor
Yoga and pilates are good BUT you cannot unstuck your neck and back via exercise.
When your neck and back is jammed, you need an adjustment (twisting).
No pain, no need to see a chiropractor.
Pain is usually felt once it has built up to a moderate or severe stage.
Do not wait until it is too late.Read more Feel awesome
Back pain and slipped disc only happens to gym guys
The bad news: office workers can get slipped disc. A study showed that sitting nonstop for four hours flattens the disc.
Over many months, this can lead to disc degeneration (Billy, 2014).
Once you get numbness going down your legs, it is VERY difficult to recover.
So, get up and MOVE more frequently. We have simple exercises that you can do, download the playlist.
I get frequent stiff neck and shoulder pain.
Stiff neck and shoulder pain: what is the real CAUSE?
Stiffness and soreness may sometimes be a SYMPTOM that some muscles are not doing their job?

You need a strong core and sixpack!
This is another myth. Doing loads of core strength exercises does NOT mean your back pain will go away.
Stop chasing the sixpack too.
Knee pain. Do you need MRI!
MRI is good for viewing which part of the knee is injured: ligaments, meniscus, etc.
However, our experience has shown us that sometimes, knee injury is due to poor control in the hip and foot.
In such a situation, rest does NOTHING to correct the cause (poor MOVEMENT control)
This is why in MBA Chiropractic, we greatly emphasise Movement precision. Call us to schedule a FNA (movement analysis).
Can I claim insurance!
In Malaysia, most chiropractic treatment are not covered by insurance.
Why delay your treatment!
Skip the the paperwork and waiting time by going directly to us for a comprehensive rehab program!
Do you offer physiotherapy or chiropractic. You fix backs right?
Such outdated thinking! Yes, historically people would consult a physiotherapist for rehab of sports injury.
And a chiropractor to fix their back pain. But nowadays, things are different. You should really be asking: can you successfully treat my case?
You have no treatment videos. Why?
In Malaysia and several other countries, chiropractors and medical doctors must abide by STRICT advertising guidelines.
Therefore, they are not allowed to record videos of their patients undergoing treatment.
I have flat feet. Do I need insoles!
