need an acupuncture

acupuncture, back pain, duck, mattress, spine

Tomorrow I might visit the acupuncturist again, the Rakyat and Medical Hall at Beverly Hills, Bundusan… my back is hurting since Chinese New Year… actually not exactly my back… not the spine… it’s the muscle at the back of my left shoulder.

The reason of the pain is something you might not believe… it is caused by eating too much duck during CNY… unbelievable right?… well, I love eating duck before… I usually eat noodle or rice with duck once or twice a week before… during breakfast or lunch. But ever since I was adviced by the acupuncturist not to eat duck about two years ago coz duck can cause ‘air’ to go inside the body, I stop eating duck… and it was indeed true coz after I stop eating duck, I feel my body especially my back muscle no longer get ‘pain’ for no reason… amazing right?… but it’s true…

So, during the recent CNY, I ate duck… and I ate loads coz I said why should I not eat this time?… only this time… so I eat and eat the duck during the CNY eve… and man… coz I stayed late that night… when I woke up in the morning, I felt the pain at the back of my shoulder muscles… although it was quite painful… I still manage to hold it till today… well sometimes it’s less painful and sometimes it’s very painful… so hopefully it will go away when I meet the acupuncturist  tomorrow… 😛

But back pain especially the spine is not only caused by DUCK, it can be caused by the mattress you sleep on every night… that’s why there are mattresses which are designed to take care your back or spine… this type of mattresses are easily available even at mattress stores los angeles… 😀 The price is a little bit on the high, but I’m sure it’s worth with the good sleep and a healthy spine you gonna have… 😀


going relaxing

back pain, injury, NC health insurance

Will be taking a day leave tomorrow… the last leave I took was in May 😛 and that was for the paintball event in KL. This time, I’m taking leave just to relax… I think I have been spending too much time sitting in the office… 😆 and sitting too much is not good for health… especially the back and butt… now I’m trying not to sit too long… I’m worried my back get injured again. Luckily the acupuncture I took last month solved my back pain problem.

But tomorrow I also want to visit the acupuncture sifu again… I want to ask what else the acupuncture can do… and maybe I will ask the sifu to acupuncture my leg… so that I can walk faster and further… I hope too much acupuncture will not void my NC health insurance 😆 But the insurance company should be happy to those who go for acupuncture coz it is much effective than the modern medicine and cheaper… in fact they should allow their client to claim for the acupuncture bills… just like the physiotherapy bills.

acupuncture treatment

acupuncture, acupuncture treatment, back pain, back pain treatment, bone treatment, herbal diet supplements, Rakyat Acupuncture & Medical Hall, spine treatment

Going back for a 2nd acupuncture treatment tomorrow… went there last Thursday for my back treatment. My back was hurting again last week… and I would say I’m very lucky for going for the treatment… if not, I will not be able to help in the Sabah International Folklore Competition last Saturday and Sunday.

I was not confident with acupuncture treatment… but I was wrong… so, thanks to the girls who introduce me to the place 😀 The place is called Rakyat Acupuncture & Medical Hall located at Beverly Hills, Jalan Bundusan. To go there, just take the first junction after the round-about at Beverly Hills… Beverly Hills, great name 😛 … it is at the first block.

Anyway, the place is simple, one nurse or clerk to take registration and two treatment rooms… one for female and one for male. On the female side, it was the old man, the father… and on the male side it was the young man, the son… either the father don’t trust the son or the father wants all… lol

The treatment is simple too… I lie on my stomach and he started checking my spine… I wanted to tell him where is the pain, but he said no need coz his hand has an x-ray… 😆 So he check my spine… pressing on each of the spine bones… and more pressing… then he put some accupuncture needles… not sure how many coz I can’t see it… before that he put some oil on my back which burn my skin like hell… i told him it was too hot, and he wipe off my skin… 😛

Then after like 10 minutes, he pulled the needles… and that’s it… when I stand up and try to bend forward… holly cow… the pain is gone… the pain was there since April… in fact the pain was there a few years ago… and now, they are gone… he told me that my spine is quite bad… he said I could have fall or injured when I was small… but he said it can be fixed with 2 or 3 treatments… but boy… 1 treatment and it’s gone already… not really gone, but I have the confident to bend forward coz the ‘spiking pain’ is no longer there…

Then he gave me some pills… he said I must take 3 in the morning after breakfast and 3 in the afternoon after lunch… for one week supply… he said the pills are special herbs but of course not herbal diet supplements 😀 He said I must not miss taking the pills… and he looks really serious about it… and the bill is only RM60 😮 Man!!!… just compare that with what I paid at Damai Specialist last April… about RM400 with some modern pain killers and X-ray… with an option for RM20K spine operations!!!

If you like to try acupuncture treatment, you can visit the place any time… the details are on the photo… and don’t forget to mention you found out about the place from here… 😀

cushion your shoe and chair

absorb, back pain, chair, comfort, cushion, patio cushions, shoe

My back pain is still bothering me sometimes… it did heal faster than before but I’m still feels uncomfortable with it… the trauma is still there… but then, I found out some of the causes of my back pain… it is not exactly the way we do our work everyday… but more on what we use everyday… I’m sure you know both of these… but never give much attention to it…

First cause is the shoe… this one I know about it long time ago… ever since my fist back pain many years ago… the heel of any shoe is very important. It must be properly cushioned… else your back, spine, nerve… will have to absorb the impact every time you make your step. The cushion of my working shoe I’m using are currently not in good condition… that is one reason…

Second, the chair… when we sit in front of the computer, we tend to forget about the time… we sit without bothering the stress and strain not only on our eyes but to our back too… if the chair is too small, the weight distribution area is too small… end up only a small part of our butt holding all our weight… and that is super bad when your weight is extra… 😛 So, the chair must be big and properly cushioned… make the cushion very thick like the patio cushions so that your weight will be properly absorb by the chair cushion… Becoz of these two things, I’m changing my shoe and chair… but I still have not found a good chair and shoe… 😛

electro acupuncture

back pain, cold sweat, electro acupuncture, electronic, flowers, gift, health, mother's day

Although with the three type of medicines and a massage, my back pain did not subside… I almost fainted on the second night… last Saturday… the pain was so severe… till my whole body soaked with my cold sweat… yea, it was cold sweat… if you know what cold sweat is… then you can imagine how bad was I that night. But luckily, the severe pain pass-by after like 10 minutes… and I manage to get a sleep after that.

I did not take any leave this week… but did take emergency leave on Friday… although I’m still in pain. I shared my experience with my colleagues… and one of them suggested to use the electronic acupuncture… and loan me his the next day, Tuesday. So on Tuesday, I tried the device before lunch time… after using it for 15 minutes… I was able to walk straight!!! It was miracle!!!… I even manage to go to the gym on Wednesday!!!… previously… in the last 2 incident, it took me about 2 weeks before I can walk straight. The electronic acupuncture really suits me… I bet some might also benefit from this little device and instead of buying flowers for mother’s day, why not buy this little wonders, the Nicomizu NOM-699 Digital Acu-Pro, for Mother’s Day?…

I actually bought the Nicomizu NOM-699 Digital Acu-Pro for my back pain… and another colleague also bought one after she heard my experience… 😀

back pain…

back pain, blackhead remover, health, insurance, International Super Seven Championship 2010, mri, paintball

Last Friday, my old problem came back… old back pain. It came in split second… I was just sitting relaxing in the early morning… when I tried to stand up, I felt a sharp pain on my back… I immediately knew the old problem came back.

I had experienced back pain twice before… and it takes one or two weeks to heal… dang… this time it gonna cost me a paintball championship… the International Super Seven Championship 2010 on 22-23 May 2010… it worries me so much till pimples are popping out… I think I’m gonna need a blackhead remover at the same time…

Because it was so painful, i went for massage… it helps a little bit… but the next day, I think the pain of the massage was making my whole body painful… so on Saturday I went to see doctor… had an x-ray… and emm…. looks like it’s not a simple problem… since it has been going on for sometimes, there are some problem on the bones… and it cost me 300++ and still need about 750++ if I go for MRI… and another 20K++ if have to do operation… dang… health insurance is very important in this case…

I hope I will recover completely soon… and hope this problem never come back again… have to take care my weight and back… 😛

Stool vs Chair

back pain, chair, comfort, modern, stool

Sitting in front of the computer for too long is making my back painful lately… I think one of the reasons is the chair… the chair is too old I guess… and it cant hold my weight anymore 😛

When editing photos on the computer, I will sit for hours in front of it without lifting my butt from the chair… just looking at the screen and maneuvering the mouse and keyboard with my hands.

I think by replacing my old chair with any of the modern stools will be a great help…  yea, I think stool will be a better choice than chair… coz I see in the architect office their draughtsman are using stool and having a taller table… it looks and feels much relaxing… emm… just like sitting in the bar… wish I will get a stool for Christmas.. 😀
