If you have any desire to improve your sports performance in weight lifting, bodybuilding, running or even gymnastics we might be able to help you. Maybe you feel that something is impeding your performance but just not sure what it may be, perhaps it’s time for a performance checkup. If you have injuries, you know it negatively affects your exercise goals. For example, if you wish to improve your weight training regime, you want to first get rid of lower back pain from weight training injury, if you have one.
Some may not feel any pain but experience reduced strength or energy. Low energy or power could be metabolic in origin; meaning the amount of fuel or nutrients your nerve cells are getting are low and we help you figure out which instead of trying every supplement you read or heard to see which one works. We’ll help you figure out if calcium or magnesium is better and how to increase testosterone levels without drugs to improve performance. Taking the wrong supplements can do more harm than good.
Reduced strength could also mean the proper nerve supply to your muscles specifically the ones you use for your sports or game is impeded. In this case, usually no amount to supplements like protein powders or vitamin supplementation will help since this is a structural problem. We will help you test every major muscle in the upper and lower extremity and muscles specific to your sports like wakeboarding or golf.
Once we restore metabolic and structural integrity most would have experienced over 80% recovery. Thereafter, we help design rehab stretches and exercise to reinforce the results we have achieved. We will also recommend what you should and should not do during your recovery process so you do not re-injure yourself.
Feel free to email me if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org Below, one of our clients KP Lee graciously allows us to tell his story so others may also find help when they may have exhausted other avenues to finding a solution. Perhaps like many of our patients who may not have been referred to our clinic you may be skeptical of whether we can help you. Well you are not alone.
“Dear Dr Lim, I was diagnosed with disc protrusion of L3/L4, L4/L5 and L5/S1 by MRI scan in 2008. I have had back pain since 2005, almost 7 years ever since I sprained my back in the gym.
I am a gym enthusiast. I go to the gym 4-6 times a week. Ever since I had back pain, I am limited by the exercises I can do; especially because I am unable to train with exercises which involve the back extensively. I have a few major back pains ever since 2005 and my condition worsens after every recurring back pain.
Starting, I have no problem running long distances but after every recurring back pain, my distance became shorter and shorter as limited by my back pain. As of now, I am unable to run as it will have a great impact on my back. I do cardio exercises like brisk walking and stationary biking.
I have had major back pain recently in December 2011. I have difficulty walking and was bedridden for almost a week and it took me 2 months to get back to the gym. Recently my back pain recurred again which hinders me again. I have to stop all my training and I feel very frustrated for each back pain recurred.
I have gone through physiotherapy in 2008, a duration of 9 months treatment of mainly cupping therapy and heat therapy, of which it doesn’t work. Lately, I am now in the treatment of acupuncture. It turns out to be good at first but as time passes by, it seems not to be effective anymore. I have suspected that I might be having sciatica as pain now radiates down my leg and I do feel tingling sensation and sometimes numbness especially at my foot soles.
I came across your website as I was searching for alternate treatment for back pain as it really bothers me a lot. I hope it can recover in no time and I could continue with my gym regime. I do not know how effective chiropractic might be but I am willing to give it a try. May I know how much you will be charging for one treatment? And will I be seeing any improvement by the first treatment? Looking into my condition, how many sessions of treatment estimated will I be undergoing to recover? Looking forward to your prompt reply. I would prefer you to reply to me by email instead of by call. Thanks and with regards, KP”
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Herniated disks are also called ruptured disks or slipped disks…Bulging disks are more common. Herniated disks are more likely to cause pain.” Many people are told they need surgery for slipped disc or herniation. But the fact is very few ever need one. I tell our patients that always try conservative methods first before you put yourself under the knife, if it does not work you can always opt for surgery when it is warranted. Well, KP never needed surgery and is now back on track with his fitness regime. Thank you KP for sharing!
