    Somebody recommended Mr Chong in SEA Park long time ago but when I went there, I was VERY disappointed with his treatment which didn't solve anything.
    I aslo went there as I did want so relief with his big hand massage to rub it in. By exerting force to the compress the cervical 3 and 4, it takes gentle manipulation regularly. SO of course, he couldnt help me with just a visit. AFter all, he is not a faith healer. Just one touch, and you could walk! I went to him to see whether I can avoid going to hospital therapist.

    Heck, even the orthopedic surgeon couldn't do it with a single treatment. After the diagnosis, he would prescribed anagelsic drugs from Muscle relaxant, cox2 inhibitor, to neurobion which can be from 1 week to 1 month depending on the condition. Then he would ask you to go for traction and sessions with physiotherapist for execise or machine traction. And finally, you are suppose to do it your own with some routine of exercises, put a back strap to ensure correct posture of your back 24/7. That is why, when patients have broken bones, you see then have cement mould to prevent movement.

    The other option is to do a surgery for those chronic pain in the neck or pain in the back. But then, cost is sky high and the risk is unknown with the bundles of nerves endings.

    I am not the one with the injuries so I can hardly be expected to remember the details. But here's bits and pieces of what I did remember. Mind you, it isn't much.

    Case 1
    One of my family member hurt his back carrying a stack of old newspaper. It began with a slight irritation which grew progressively painful. He went to see the good Doc. An X-ray revealed a little crack on the vertebra which could have had dire consequences if left untreated. He was given the necessary medical treatment and asked to return for ten physiotherapy sessions. What I liked about this doctor is that he took time to explain in detail what the problem was, how it should be treated, the consequences thereof and so on and so forth.

    Case 2
    Another family member, a senior citizen, slipped and hurt his foot. He went to see the Urut Master somewhere in PJ. (I think those are called the sen-sei?) They uruted him nice and good. A few hours later, the part of his foot swelled and he began to feel the pain. Off we went to Doc William. X-ray revealed a fractured bone somewhere on his foot. ...... do I have to go on with this? Really, it's the same old story but the old man is happy with his cure.

    Look, I'm recommending Dr William because I think he's good. I did refer a few more friends, colleagues, relatives and neighbors to Dr William. Try him if you want to. Or don't. It makes no difference to me.

    We need the details to know whether he is really good.
    Besides, how can you use my detail to judge a doctor? Injuries differ from case to case. He is no miracle healer.

    And I'm not saying those Urut Masters are not good. I'm sure they're good at what they do. Sometimes your circumstances may not fall under the ambit of their expertise. Just saying ...

    Thanks for the details, I appreciate it.

    I have been to many, many so-called doctors and physiotherapist but none can cure my stiff neck, back pain and eyebrow/head pain. That's why I am so careful of these recommendations.

    Jan,
    I had chronic neck pains and it bothered me for almost a year. I damaged a ligament near my neck. There was no medicine to cure it. Sure you need to see a doctor about this. But no doctor could cure me, they offered me pain relieve treatment eg apply heat to relieve the pain. I also could not walk properly as I had very bad vertigo. Of course, I was very worried at that time, even with the reassurance of the many doctors that I went to. I avoided the sensih because I was told that if done wrongly, the damage could be permanent. Over time, the other neck muscles has grown bigger and stronger to compensate for that damaged ligament and I am OK now. Over time, the body can heal itself with proper rest and the correct exercise. So take care and do not worry unnecesary.But do go see a doctor and monitor your condition.

    Doctors are trained for years in study and pratical while the specialist like the orthopedics surgeons are required to study additional 4 years for that specific field in bones. Moreover, it could branch out to more specific like paedtricians or geriatics as the bones structures is different. Or perhaps the orthosurgeries involving diagnosis, treatment or surgeries.

    Similarly, it may be just like the car mechanics - Drive a Ferrarri, and you try seeking to fix that combustion problem with the Ah Beng workshop, you might be asking for trouble. He might even have the trouble to unscrew the nuts with the right screwdriver,
    Whatever is posted in the cyberviews are meant for general info. Just like some of the off the shelf medication purchases, most comes with this caution -" If symptoms persists, kindly consult your physician or professional medical help."

    BTW, the drugs prescribed by the doctors for pain like NSAID - ( Non steroidal anti inflamation drugs ) is helping the pain to ease with its action on the inflammed areas which causes pain to some extent which is the part of cause and symptoms. As far as for my pain the neck, I got to wear the cervical collar thingy like an anjing collar because it would prevent me from swaying my neck and keep at the right posture because it is the source of the problem where pain radiates to my arms and shoulder. Wifey likes it though because it also prevent me to take a look at PYT. And when I am strapped like a doggie, how to whistle at the PYT?

    For me, Choong is good too. But the wait is super long.........either go there to take number first, then go back later. Or call him (if he picks up the phone). He'll give you a number per time you would like (if he's avai). Else he'll let you know number, what day & time.

    I've also just learnt of an Aussie who's in USJ practising something called 'dorn therapy' (google to learn more). I've not been as there's not been any need to (touchwood!) but from some who went, they almost 'swear' by him. Not only back ache, muscle pull etc but also headaches and insomnia. It's some form of holistic therapy. Anyone knows?
