Orthopaedics & Musculoskeletal

Ong Fujian’s Orthopaedic specialist (Prof. Wong Pang Ong) specialises in dealing with a range of conditions, broadly dividing into acute and chronic injuries. Being trained under Prof. Liu Bai Ling and Prof. Song Yi Tong (top 500 renowned professor in China) for a Master Degree in Orthopaedics and Traumatology, he accumulated experiences in both acute and chronic orthopaedics and traumatic disorders. Treatment measures range from closed fracture reduction, electroacupuncture, cupping as well as medication soaking.

Diseases include:
Muscle Sprain, Strain, and Traumatology

Muscle Sprain
Muscle sprains are commonly seen in athletes. e.g. During jogging/running, when a person suddenly changes direction, or during weight-bearing exercises.

It causes the muscles, tendons, ligaments and synovial joints to undergo tremendous stress and damage resulting in pain, deformities and stability.

Sprain injuries tend to be located around a joint, resulting in pain, swelling and bruising. Majority of sprains have relatively good outcomes and will resolve with time. However, this is subjected to individual proponents such as external factors, patient’s compliance, age, comorbidities, degree of sprain and severity.

Grading of Sprain
Grade 1 Sprains: occur when fibers of the ligament are stretched but not torn.
Grade 2 Sprains: are injuries where the ligament is partially torn.
Grade 3 Sprains: occur when the ligament is completely torn or ruptured.

Treatment measures: 

  1. TCM medications (pain relief and reduction of inflammation)
  2. Acupuncture (pain relief and the speeding up of recovery)
  3. Medication-infused bandage (to provide compression and pain relief) 
  4. Cupping (improves recovery)

Musculoskeletal system and Soft tissue injury:
Fractures: Destruction of bone architecture. Usually, the surrounding soft tissues are also affected.
Dislocation: Bone joints could be separated or partially separated.

Ligamentous Injury: Ligaments can be partially or fully torn. In ligaments that are fully torn, the body’s range of movement is restricted, whereas in partially torn ligaments, the range of movement is usually preserved but the condition might further deteriorate under constant pressure. In most cases, partially torn muscles or ligaments will be gradually repaired by the body.

Commonly encountered conditions include:
Arthritis: Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic, Ankylosing Spondylitis
Trauma-related: Fractures and Dislocations
Soft tissue injury: Plantar Fasciitis, Frozen shoulder, Tennis elbow, Golfer’s Elbow
Sciatica: Slipped disc and Spinal Stenosis
Spine/bone abnormalities: Scoliosis, Winging of Scapula
Others: Osteoporosis, Osteopenia, Osteomalacia
