TCM Clinic in Telok Blangah Treat Neck Pain---Cervical Spondylosis with Acupuncture


TCM Clinic in Telok Blangah Treat Neck Pain---Cervical Spondylosis with Acupuncture


Neck Pain (Cervical Spondylosis)

Almost every day I have patients who came to see me who suffer from back pain or neck pain.  It is very common for people to have back pain or neck pain. I observed that back pain is more than neck pain. The ratio is about 10 : 4. Both cases can cause a lot of discomfort for the patients. 

One young father, age 34, carried his three sons together at the same on his shoulder in a swimming pool.  His sons were 3, 5 and 7 years old, He wanted to show his sons how strong his arms were.

After the incident, he suffered a lot of pain on his neck and also his neck was so stiff that he could not turn his head side way or bow his head. He went to see an orthopaedic and was told that the nerve roots of his cervical vertebrae were pressed. He did not wish to go for an operation.

He was introduced to see me.  He said that he was in great pain. He could not turn his head (he must moved his body 90 degree to see the other side). I told him that he had inflammation on his vertebrae and gave him 10 sessions of acupuncture treatments. Besides acupuncture treatments, he was also given some Chinese herbal medicine, neck traction and massage. He came for treatment every three days and he eventually got well.

Symptoms  and Cause of Neck Pain (Cervical Spondylosis)



In most cases, patients experience a pain or stiffness in the neck, particularly after a night's rest. Movement of the neck may make the pain worse. There are cases where the pain spreads to the shoulders, one side of the arm down to hand or fingers, the base of the skull and perhaps the occasional headache. However, some patients develop chronic (persistent) pain.
Cervical spondylosis is spondylosis affecting the cervical vertebrae, intervertebral discs, and surrounding soft tissue. The cause of neck pain could be due to osteophytes (spurs) at the vertebrae or the disc space prolapses pressing on the nerve roots. Cervical Spondylosis is more frequently seen in women than men.

For those who wish to consult a western trained orthopaedic doctor, I highly recommend Dr. Razmi of Centre for Spine and Orthopaedic Surgery at #05-13, Gleneagles Medical Centre,Tel: 67382628. He is a senior consultant and a orthopaedic surgeon. He is a very good doctor of high integrity.

Neck Pain (Cervical Spondylosis)
Two years ago, one male patient, 58 years of age, came to see me. He complained of neck pain and left arm numbness. He said he had gone for a neck operation and showed me his X-ray film. He had one metal bar and some screws inserted in his cervical vertebrae. He said that he was fortunate that the surgery was successful. He added that some friends told him that if he was not lucky he might have been paralyzed. He told me that occasionally, he felt pain in the neck. He came for acupuncture treatments whenever he had pain. Below is his X-ray film.

Neck Pain (Cervical Spondylosis)
Just a few months ago, a man, 38 years of age, came to see me. He complained of soft voice after an operation on his throat. Although he could talk, his voice was so soft that people could hardly hear. He said that he had gone for an operation one month ago for his cervical spondylosis (neck pain).  The operation cost him $38,000. He produced his X-ray film which showed that he had one metal bar and some screws inserted in his neck.  He said that after the operation, his voice became extremely soft and coarse.  His surgeon told him that it would take about 4 to 6 months before he could get back his voice. He said that as he was a salesman, he needed to talk to his customers, without voice, he would not be able to do sales. So, he asked if TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) can help?
Well, I gave me some Chinese herbs to nourish his throat. After three months, he said he slowly gained back his voice, but still could not shout as loudly as before. Below is his X-ray film.

Here, I am not saying that he had made a wrong decision, but there is no harm looking for alternative treatments before going for an operation.
