My nephew had an accident in school during recess. A boy was running across the canteen and collided into my nephew. Luckily he did not hit his head and managed to break his fall with his hands. He seemed ok at first but later complained that his wrist hurt. On a friend's recommendation we decided to see an orthopaedic surgeon and brought him to see Dr Henry Chan. Good thing we went to see Dr Chan because it turned out to be a mild displacement and fracture We didn't realise back then but it could otherwise have affected his growth. Luckily my nephew is perfectly fine now and he actually remembers Dr Chan very fondly. I recommend Dr Chan for child injuries because he is jovial, calm and very good with kids!

Ballroom dancing is my hobby. I started after my children had grown up and at first it was just to past the time. Very soon I got to meet many many friends and in the blink of an eye 10 wonderful years of dancing passed.

The pain started with slight ache at the right especially when the knee is bent for a long time. Slowly it became a bad pain that wouldn't go away. Even climbing stairs also pain. I did acupuncture, tried tui na and visited a chiropractor but no help.

Finally the pain became very bad and I had to stop dancing to rest. I got to know Dr Henry through a friend's recommendation, thinking that I may have to replace my knees. I find Dr Henry to be very knowledgeable and kind. He explained that I have osteoarthritis or cartilage degeneration. Instead of knee surgery, he suggested that I try a less invasive viscosupplement injection first.

Of course I was sceptical initially because I had already tried many treatments, but I am so glad I trusted him. After the injection, my knee pain improved. These days I still enjoy my dancing, but I also learned to take it easy. Thank you Dr Henry for allowing an old lady like me to continue with her hobby. I will introduce all my dancing kaki to you ok! Best wishes to you doctor!

A SURGEON'S NO BS GUIDE TO BACK PAIN TREATMENTS IN SINGAPORE THAT WORK
February 1st, 2018

What do TCM practitioners, Orthopaedic surgeons, Sport medicine doctors, physiotherapists and chiropractors have in common? That's right, they all see Singaporeans with back pain.

Back pain treatment is a multi-million dollar industry in Singapore - clearly, the problem afflicts many of us. It's no wonder that tons of marketing money is poured into targeting back pain sufferers.

Should I seek help for my neck strain?

Hi Desmond, Thank you very much for your questions. You are very right that most of the neck problems in your age group is likely due to bad posture (humans are not designed to stare at laptops/ handphones for prolonged period of time). However, if you feel that the symptoms are worsening and not re...

How can I get rid of longstanding severe shoulder muscle ache?

Hi Jinle, Thank you for your email. I would suggest you to get a proper check up by a doctor or Orthopaedic Surgeon - normal "shoulder strain" should not persist for more than a few weeks, and sometimes the pain felt at the shoulder may not be related to any shoulder problem, the pain is referred fr...

What could be the cause for soreness at the top and sole of my feet?

Hi Jay,
Thank you for your email. This persistent foot pain is definitely not normal, typical "sprain/ strain" should resolve within a week or two.
Before we start, we need to ask you a few more questions about your symptoms:
1. Was there any injuries involved? (it means that we might have to suspec...

What could be the cause of numbness radiating down my leg?

Hi Mau, From the description of your symptoms, most likely you are suffering from a slipped disc, the persistent numbing feeling is cause by the nerve "pinch". We would need to do a thorough check up and a MRI scan to fully investigate the cause of your symptoms and the severity of the condition. Al...

How can I manage joint pain in my ankle and knee which causes me to wake from my sleep?

Hi Shirlene, Thank you for your enquiry. The "usual" joint pain that is related to wear and tear or overuse will typically feel worse after exertion, and usually will not wake somebody from sleep. So I agree with Dr. Sean Ng that the pain may be related to inflammatory arthritis or even something si...

Which doctor should I see for numbness at my heel and ankle?

Hi Kenneth, The other possibility of the numbness/ tingling sensation could be due to a spine problem. One of the nerve roots in the spine might be pinched. We (Orthopaedic surgeons) would need to do a thorough assessment (including a MRI scan) to find out what's the root cause of your symptoms. Hop...

What should I do next for a knee effusion that is still causing pain?

Hi Bradon, Effusion means that there was "water" accumulation in the joint, and it usually signify that there was some damage in the internal structures of the knee - and that's why the knee was "swollen". I suspect you may have damanged your meniscus as squash is a sport that involes a lot of chang...

Is surgery the only way to get rid of a bunion? (photo)

Hi Cheryl, Thank you for your question, you do have mild to moderate hallux valgus and bunion on the left, and we will have to perform X rays and examination to fully evaluate the severity of your hallux valgus. The pain that you are experiencing is mainly due to the excessive pressure over the "pro...

How can one resolve knee pain even after a knee replacement surgery?

Hi SFW, Thank you for your question. Persistent severe pain after a right knee replacement is abnormal especially when her other knee replacement was doing fine. I'd strongly advise you bring your grandmom for a checkup and we'll need to do a thorough investigations including X rays, blood tests and...

What should I do next for lower back pain that occured on running?

Hi ET, Thank you for your questions. I agreed with both Dr. Sean and Dr. Dinesh that your pain is likely "discogenic", meaning that it is coming from the disc, which is the cushion in between the bones. There are also a spectrum of a "slipped disc", only when the slipped disc is very severe and comp...
