WHAT IS FEVER?

Fever is a state of health where the body temperature is higher than normal. An increase in body
temperature is an indication that your body is fighting infection and it is usually not a course for
concern.

Fever is also known as pyrexia (high fever or temperature). Fever temperature may vary depending
on the condition and environment where temperature is measured.
 Rectal temperature above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit ( 38 degrees Celsius)
 Oral temperature above 100 degree Fahrenheit (37.8 degrees Celsius)
 Axillary (armpit) temperature above 99 degree Fahrenheit (37.2 degrees Celsius)
 Ear (tympanic membrane) temperature above 100.4 degree Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius)
 Forehead (temporal artery) temperature above 100.4 degree Fahrenheit (38 degrees
Celsius).

TYPES OF FEVER

The nature and type of fever should be considered as there are varying types which could be
interchanged.
Continuous fever
Fever is said to be continuous when the temperature does not fluctuate above 1 degree
Celsius in 24 hours period. This fever is normally associated with lobar pneumonia, typhoid,
urinary tract infection (UTI) and endocarditis.
 Remittent fever

In remittent fever, during the day the temperature remains normal but fluctuates more than
2 degree Celsius in 24 hours. It’s most common with patients with typhoid infection and
infective endocarditis.
intermittent fever
The temperature fluctuates only for some hours in a day and returns to normal for the
remaining hours of the day. Daily occurrence is usually quotidian, it is tertian in alternative
days and for every third day it is quatrain. Intermittent fever is seen in malaria, septicemia,
pyemia etc.
Hectic or septic fever
Here, the temperature variation is very wide and it’s more than 5 degree Celsius. It is seen in
septicemia.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF FEVER?
The signs and symptoms of fever may include:
 Shivering
 Lack of appetite
 Feeling cold when nobody else does
 Dehydration
 Sweating
 Sleeplessness
 Lethargy
 Depression
And in high cases there may be serious irritability, confusion and seizures.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF FEVER?
Various factors could cause fever, these are:
 Infection
 Rheumatoid arthrities
 Some medications
 Alcohol withdrawal
 Silicosis
 Amphitamine abuse
 Over exposure of skin to sunlight (sunburn).

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENTS OF FEVER
Fever diagnosis is direct; it involves measuring the patient’s temperature at a state of rest. High
reading is an indication of fever.

The following signs should be looked out for during diagnosis.

1. Mouth temperature over 37.7 degree Celsius
2. If rectum (anus) temperature is over 37.5-38.3 degree Celsius.
3. Then if temperature under the arm is above 37.2 degree Celsius.

Tylenol (paracetamol) a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or ibuprofen can help return body
temperature to normal. It’s noteworthy that a mild fever may be helping to fight bacterium or viral
infection; therefore, it may not be ideal reducing the body's temperature. In the case of bacterial
infection, an antibiotic is prescribed by the doctor.

For fever caused by cold, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may be used to relieve
uncomfortable symptoms.

The patients are also advised to take lots of water to prevent dehydration.

In the medical profession, chest pain is a term used in describing any symptom in the chest.
Chest pain is common complaint, accounting for 5% to 8% of all emergency department
visits in the World per year. It is best to be safe. Always seek medical care for the diagnosis
of any pain in the chest.

What are the sources of this chest pain?

The sources of chest pain could arise from different parts of the chest, including:
 The heart
 The lungs, the trachea and the plueral ( lining of the lung)
 The oesophagus(food pipe)
 The skin
 Muscles
 Bones
 Abdomen
 The back including the nerves and the back muscles
 The aorta (the largest artery in the body)
 The diaphragm (the flat muscle that seperates the chest from the abnorminal
cavities.
Ages, gender and race should be considered by health care practitioners or general
practitioners while diagnosing treatment options for patient.

What are the risk factors?

You should avoid the following to maintain a healthy life style.
 Smoking
 High blood pressure
 Diabetes
 Genetic factors
You need to take note of these factors and avoid them as much as you can to avoid the risk
of chest pain and subsequent heart attack. There is nothing or little you can do about
inherited genes (family history).

What are the causes of chest pain?

Chest pain can be caused by almost every structure in your chest. Different organs produce
different types of pain, hence pain is not specific. There are varying causes of chest pain you
should take note of, some of them include:
 Broken or bruised ribs
 Pleuritis
 Pneumothorax
 Shingles
 Pneumonia
 Pulmonary embolus
 Angina
 Hearth attack (myocardial infarction)
 Pericarditis
 Indigestion or reflux

Though there are many causes of chest pain, the two main causes are grouped into
 Cardiac related and
 Non cardiac related.
For the cardiac related chest pain, it is cause by an imbalance between blood supply to the
heart and oxygen needs of the heart muscles. Cardiac chest pain is mostly caused by
atherosclerosis. This is referred to as angina. All require emergency care. While for the non-
cardiac chest pain, the causes are many, and most of them do not require emergency care.
They range from infections to conditions such as chest trauma, abdominal pain, lung tumors
and indigestion.

How is chest pain diagnosed?

Patients with chest pain who are uncertain whether the chest pain is from heart problem or
not must be evaluated immediately in the emergency room by a practitioner. Prior to
diagnosis, we take account of your health history and physical examination. We try to
initially distinguish between cardiac and non-cardiac causes. Non cardiac causes are most
common, but it is not good to overlook serious conditions such as acute coronary syndrome,
pneumonia or pulmonary embolism. We take note of elevated blood levels of troponin and
obtain an electrocardiogram (EKG) and chest X-Ray. We also run other blood test to further
ascertain the cause/source of the chest pain

How is chest pain treated?

Treatments of chest pain vary depending on the sources/causes of the chest pain. This we
usually ascertain during diagnosis. Artery relaxers, blood thinners, acid-suppressing
medications, aspirin and antidepressants are some of the medications we administer
depending on the severity.

We also carry out the following surgical procedures in some dangerous cases of chest pain.
 Lung reinflation
 Dissection repair
 Bypass surgery
 Balloons and stent placement.

to look out for you!

CHIROPRACTIC THERAPY

Chiropractic healthcare is one of the most frequently used complementary health services in the
United States. Chiropractic care is of benefits to people of all ages and it’s associated with accruing,
long term overall health status.
How much should I know about chiropractic care?
Chiropractic healthcare is actually a preventive-based therapy that focuses on your diet, exercises,
and lifestyle and emphasizes on natural methods to overall wellness.
Chiropractic therapy involves evaluation, adjustment and other therapeutic methods that are
required and used in the treatment of neuromuscular disorders arising from the spine and the
maintenance and restoration of the spine health. It is a procedure that optimizes your state of
health and function of your spine, arms and leg.
According to the American chiropractic Association (ACA), chiropractors primarily focuses are on the
back pain, neck pain, joint pains and headaches through the manipulation of the spine.
How is chiropractic diagnosed?
The first approach to chiropractic care involves the evaluation of your general health history by our
chiropractors, where you get to explain your symptoms with them. After health evaluation, general
diagnostic tests such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration rate, and reflexes as well as specific
orthopaedic and neurological test are conducted to access the range of motion of the to-be- treated
area of your body such as muscle tone, muscle strength and neurological integrity.
Accurate diagnosis is followed based on the result of your history and examination test. The
common diagnoses are x-ray, MRI, CT scan, the results of these diagnoses will determine if your
problem will respond to chiropractic care or not.

What are the treatment options available?

Chiropractic therapy is not a treatment regimen for any disease rather the goal of chiropractic care is
to free you from “vertebra subluxation complex”. Correction of “subluxation” has a beneficial effect
on many levels on one’s health. However, the common therapy options include:
Spine manipulation or adjustment: the major form of treatment in chiropractic care is “adjustment”
or “manipulation” of the spine. Our chiropractors perform this spine manipulation by using their
hands or a hand held instrument or device can be used to apply controlled force to the target region
of the spine. However, other treatments can be effectively employed to enhance chiropractic
adjustment. These include:
Physical therapy such as exercise
Electrical muscle stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound and acupuncture, manual trigger therapy, low
level or cold laser therapy, and ergonomic counselling.

What are the benefits of chiropractic therapy?

Research studies have shown that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment option for adults
with acute, sub-acute and chronic low back pain, neck pain, leg pain or sciatica, sport injuries,
various forms of headaches such as migraine headache, spine pain, pains in the arms and foot.
What should I expect after chiropractic therapy?
There may be temporary worsening of symptoms as there may be increase in pre-existing symptoms
of pain, but this lasts only a few hours to a few days.
In addition, there may be temporary skin irritation or burn; this depends on the methods of
treatment like electrical or light therapy
Muscle strain which automatically resolve itself within a few days or weeks with adequate rest.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT SCOLIOSIS?

Scoliosis is a spinal deformity in patients. it occurs when there is lateral curve of the spine of cobb
angle greater than 10 degrees. It is associated with a gradual loss of intersegment stability with aging
and consequent progressive deformity and rarely pains.

Who are likely to be affected by scoliosis?

Males and females are about equally to have minor scoliosis of approximately 10 degrees; however
females usually have up to 10-folds greater risk of curve progression and thus required treatments.
In addition, scoliosis can occur at any age, but it develops mostly in children from 10 to 15 years of
age, sometimes called “Idiopathic Scoliosis.” Idiopathic as the causes are mostly unknown.
What are the risk factors and likely causes of scoliosis?
Scoliosis can progress to respiratory impairment from ribs deformity and can lead to significant
cosmetic problems and emotional distress for some patients.

Causes:

GENETIC FACTOR: studies have shown that development and progression of scoliosis is associated
with genetic factor, so if your parents have idiopathic scoliosis associated with polygenic disorder,
there is 50% chances are that you’ll need scoliosis treatment at some point in your life.
Other common causes are:
Structural scoliosis can be caused by neuromuscular diseases such as cerebral palsy; poliomyelitis or
muscular dystrophy, even birth defect such as hemi vertebra could lead to scoliosis, soft tissue
disorders, infections, tumors such as neurofibromatosis, metabolic factors and rhematic disorders.

How is scoliosis diagnosed?

Physical examination: the major screening for scoliosis is done through physical examination, which
is done by Adam’s forward bend test. During the physical examination, our examiner will ask you to
stand and bend forward at the waist, we’ll then assess if there is any symmetry of your back from
behind and beside. So you possibly have scoliosis if you have lateral bent spine because the curve
will cause spinal rotation and eventually rib humps which is visible on examination. We use
scoliometer and/or inclinometer to quantify the spinal curve and rotation and to access your skeletal
maturity (using radiography). A Cobb angle measurement using radiography is required for official
diagnosis of scoliosis.
Radiography assessment: after physical examination, if a lateral curve is discovered, radiography
screening may be needed. Radiographs are the most common and effective measures to evaluate
scoliosis. Radiographs will help to examine the entire spine to determine the presence of any lateral
curve and the degree of curve by evaluation of the Cobb angle. The greater the Cobb angle the
greater the risk and degree of scoliosis. Patients with scoliosis have spine curve that looks like a “C”
(one curve) or an “S” (two curves) when examined on x-rays.

What are the likely symptoms of scoliosis?

Generally, scoliosis is a painless condition for many patients. However, there are several indicators
we use to determine if a patient has scoliosis or not. The most common symptoms or indicators
include:
 A “rib hump” at the back of the waist or ribs. That is a hump on one side of the spine that is
noticeable when you bend forward.
 One arm hanging lower than the other
 Uneven shoulder and/or shoulder blades
 Head is not being covered over the body
 When there is an uneven hip and waist
 There may be change or discoloration in the skin that covers the spine of the affected area
 Sometimes leaning appearance is also an indicator of having scoliosis

Treatments

Prior to scoliosis treatment, we take account of the severity of the curve, age and physical maturity
and the location of the curve. The decision to go medical treatment for scoliosis is usually
individualized to the patient and the symptoms of illness. Some of the treatment options include:
Physical Therapy: exercise based therapy is a logical approach to improve and maintain flexibility and
relieve the risk of pain if any, pulmonary dysfunction and progression.
Radiography therapy: this is the most accurate way to diagnose scoliosis and treat in severe cases.
Conservative treatment such as casting and/or bracing is required for curves greater than 20 or25
degrees. However for curves greater than 40 or 45 degrees, surgical intervention is necessary for
prevention of progression, correction of deformity, preservation of balance and cosmetics.
What to expect post-treatment
Our collective goal and objective is for you to return to your normal daily activities after treatment,
our surgical therapy will help you return to your normal activities within 3-5 months after surgery.
However recovery time may vary from patients to patients.

Herniated disc could be a nightmare for most people because it is the most common causes of work
leave because of its association with low back pain as well as leg pain or sciatica.
Disc Herniation is a disorder that majorly affects your intervertebral discs.

WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT HERNIATED DISC?

According to American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), your disc begins to break or
herniate when its jelly-like nucleus called Nucleus pulposus pushes against its outer ring also known
as the Annulus Fibrosus due to wear and tear or sometimes sudden injury. The high pressure against
annulus fibrosus result to low back pain, as well as leg pain or sciatica.

What are the likely causes of herniated disc?

A herniated disc in most cases is associated with the natural aging of the spine due to the gradual
wear and tear that comes with aging. However, children and young adults may also experience
herniated disc at some point in their life. Other risk factors that may contribute to the development
of herniateddisc are improper lifting of heavy objects, overweight or obesity because of the pressure
or too stress that is mounted on the lower your lower back if you are obese, sedentary lifestyle,
smoking, seating for long periods while driving couple with the vibration from your car engine can
put pressure on your back spine and disc, strenuous activities that can strain your spine etc.

What are the symptoms associated with disc being herniated?

For most people, low back pain is the initial and major symptom for you to suspect that your disc is
being herniated. However this be become improved with time. Leg pain, weakness or numbness may
then set in at a later stage. You should seek medical attention for proper examination if you notice
any of the following symptoms:
Back pain, leg or foot pain(sciatica), weakness in your leg and/or foot, numbness sensation in your
leg and/or foot. In a more severe case called cauda equine syndrome, you may experience loss of
bladder or bowel control which is caused when your spinal nerve roots are being compressed. This
therefore requires seeking immediate doctor’s attention. But sometimes, not all patients may
experience much pain.

How can herniated disc be treated?

Pre-treatment criteria require you to discuss your general medical history with your doctor, before a
physical examination could be conducted using a magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) scan to
ascertain if your problem is herniated disc related or not. The most common treatments for
herniated disc are:
Non-surgical or non-invasive treatment
a) Rest is one of the common nor-surgical measure for herniated disc, you should take
1-2 days’ rest breaks, this will help calm the severe back pain; however, you should
avoid sitting for too long period of time.

b) Physical therapy: Another non-invasive measure of treating herniated disc is physical
activities. Some specific exercises can help strengthen your lower back as well as
your abdominal muscles.
c) Epidural steroid injection: If your attempts to using other non-surgical treatments
like physical therapy, rest, and chiropractic treatment have failed, you should
consider this steroid injection which is a low-risk alternative to surgical intervention.
Because this is the most effective non-surgical measure for reducing pain associated
with herniated disc. In this procedure, steroids are injected into your lower back to
help reduce local inflammation, we can train you on how to inject the steroids
yourself

Surgical treatment: if the pains do not settle within six weeks of post non-surgical treatment,
you should consider surgery as an option. Our orthopaedic Surgeons are here and well
equipped, trained to help carry out MICRODISCECTOMY on the affected area by removing
the protruding disc and any fragment that are putting pressure on your spinal nerve.

What to expect post treatment?

Herniated disc symptoms may take a long time to resolve using only non-surgical measures.
However, the results of micro discectomy surgery are generally very effective. The outcomes of post-
surgical therapy are more improved leg pain, elimination of low back pain; you can slowly resume
your normal daily activities over the first several weeks following the surgery therapy.

Signs, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is very painful and is chronic disease that affects the musculoskeletal system in the body. The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown.Symptoms of fibromyalgia may be intermittent or constantly present. The reason fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose is because of it is variable symptoms and patients need to seek a doctor who is specialized in doing this such as chiropractor or orthopaedic physician which we provide at our medical office.Many signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia are similar to those caused by other joint, muscular or immune system disorders, so diagnosis is typically a long and frustrating process and needs to be diagnosed by a physician or a chiropractor.

Some common symptoms of fibromyalgia:

Fatigue
Muscle aches, either widespread or limited to a specific region of the body (back of the neck, chest, shoulders and lower back)
Joint stiffness and painHeadaches
Memory problemsBrain fogConcentration problems
Anxiety
Depression
Feelings of hopelessness and helplessness

Pain is the definitive symptom of fibromyalgia, but it can present itself in different ways, and in different parts of the body. Some people complain of constant stabbing pain throughout their entire body, while others experience a duller form of continuous aching. Alternately, fibromyalgia pain can be localized to one or more areas of the body, or it can seem to cluster around multiple “pain centers.”One of the most vexing things about fibromyalgia is that the pain it causes has no apparent cause. Yet, some patients say that they do experience some identifiable pain triggers. First, changing weather conditions (rising pressure, falling pressure, changes in humidity) can make the pain more intense, or “wake the pain up” after a latent period. Others experience a sharp increase in their fibromyalgia pain if they are dealing with professionally or emotionally stressful situations, suggesting that the pain may have a strong psychological component

Fibromyalgia is often accompanied by other health issues that do not seem to be readily related to the disorder. These include:
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Temporomandibular
joint disorder
Premenstrual syndrome
Mitral valve prolapse

What Causes Fibromyalgia?

While experts are not clear about the cause of fibromyalgia, they have several theories about how the condition arises and presents itself.Stress is a major contributor to the development of the disease, and symptoms also increases when the stress goes up.It is believed that pain of fibromyalgia may originate deep within the body. The pain felt in the musculoskeletal tissue may not originate in the same location where it is felt – it may be referred pain.

Orthopaedic Surgeon

Orthopaedic surgeons treat problems of the musculoskeletal system. This involves:

Diagnosis of your injury or disorder
Treatment with medication, exercise, casting, surgery or other options
Rehabilitation by recommending exercises or physical therapy to restore movement, strength and function
Prevention with information and treatment plans to prevent injury or slow the progression of disease

While orthopaedic surgeons are familiar with all aspects of the musculoskeletal system, many orthopaedists specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, spine, shoulder, hand, hip or knee. They may also choose to focus on specific fields like pediatrics, trauma or sports medicine. Some orthopaedic surgeons may specialize in several areas.

Education and Training

Orthopaedic surgeon is a medical doctor with extensive training in the proper diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.In addition, orthopaedic surgeon spends many hours studying, attending continuing medical education courses every year, and taking self-assessment examinations to stay up-to-date.

Treatment

Your Doctor’s Visit

Your orthopaedic surgeon will take a history of your illness or injury and then do a physical examination doing proper orthpaedic examination and tests. This may be followed by diagnostic studies such as x-rays, MRI, Cat Scan or blood tests.Te doctor will then discuss your diagnosis and help you select the best treatment plan so that you can live an active and functional life

Nonsurgical Treatment

Orthopaedic surgeons treat many musculoskeletal conditions without surgery-by using medication, exercise and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies and sometimes injections.For most orthopaedic diseases and injuries there is more than one form of treatment. If necessary, your orthopaedic surgeon may recommend surgery if you do not respond to nonsurgical treatments.

Surgical Treatment

Orthopaedic surgeons perform numerous types of surgeries. Common procedures include:Arthroscopy-a procedure that uses special cameras and equipment to visualize, diagnose and treat problems inside a joint.Fusion-a “welding” process by which bones are fused together with bone grafts and internal devices (such as metal rods) to heal into a single solid bone.Internal fixation-a method to hold the broken pieces of bone in proper position with metal plates, pins or screws while the bone is healing.Joint replacement (partial, total and revision)-when an arthritic or damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis.Osteotomy-the correction of bone deformity by cutting and repositioning the bone.Soft tissue repair-the mending of soft tissue, such as torn tendons or ligaments

One of the most common medical complaints

Mostpeople experience them at some point in their life. They can affectanyone regardless of age, race, and gender. Almost half of all adultsworldwide will experience a headache in any given year .A headache can be a sign of stress or emotional distress, or it can result froma medical disorder, such as migraine or high bloodpressure , anxiety, or depression. It can lead to other problems. People withchronic migraine headaches, for example, may find it hard to attend work orschool regularly yet focus on daily task.

Headache causes

Headache is a common complaint worldwide.A headache can occur in any part of the head, on both sides of the head, or injust one location.Headaches can radiate across the head from a central point or have avise-like quality. Different pain symptoms can be sharp, throbbing or dull,appear gradually or suddenly. Lasting from less than an hour up to severaldays.There are different ways to define headaches.

Primary Headache

sPrimary headaches are stand-alone illnesses caused directly by theoveractivity of, or problems with, structures in the head that arepain-sensitive.This includes the blood vessels, muscles, and nerves of thehead and neck.Common primary headaches include migraines, cluster headaches,

Secondary headaches

Secondary headaches are symptoms that happen when another conditionstimulates the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. In other words, the headachesymptoms can be associated to another factor.A wide range of different factors can cause secondary headaches.These include:
● alcohol-induced hangover
● brain tumor
● blood clots
● bleeding in or around the brain
● “brain freeze,” or ice-cream headaches
● carbon monoxide poisoning
● concussion
● dehydration
● glaucoma
● teeth-grinding at night
● influenza
● overuse of pain medication, known as rebound headaches
● panic attacks● stroke

As headaches can be a symptom of a serious condition, it is advice to seekmedical attention if they become more severe, regular, or persistent.For example, a Doctor should be contacted immediately if headaches becomemore painful or fail to improve with medication or is joined by other symptomssuch as fever, confusion, and stiffness in neck.

Cluster headaches

Cluster headaches usually last between 15 minutes and 3 hours , and they occursuddenly once per day up to eight times per day for a period of weeks tomonths. In between clusters, there may be no headache symptoms, and thisheadache-free period can last months to years.
The pain caused by cluster headaches is:
● severe
● often described as sharp or burning
● typically located in or around one eye

The affected area may become red and swollen, the eyelid may droop, andthe nasal passage on the affected side may become stuffy and runny.

Thunderclap Headaches

These are sudden, severe headaches that are often described as the “worstheadache of my life.” They reach maximum intensity in less than one minuteand last longer than 5 minutes.A thunderclap headache is often secondary to life-threatening conditions,such as intracerebral hemorrhage, cerebral venous thrombosis, ruptured orunruptured aneurysms , reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome(RVS), meningitis , and pituitary apoplexy. Therefore, people who experiencethese sudden, severe headaches should seek medical evaluationimmediately.

Headache Diagnosis and Treatment

A doctor will usually be able to diagnose a particular type of headache througha description of the condition, the type of pain, and the timing and pattern ofattacks. If the nature of the headache appears to be complex, tests may becarried out to eliminate more serious causes.
Further testing could include:
● blood tests
● chiropractic examination
● X-rays
● brain scans, such as CT and MRI

The most common ways of treating headaches are through chiropracticmanipulation and adjustment.It is important to follow the doctor’s advice because overusing pain reliefmedication can lead to rebound headaches. Causing them to worse with in time.

Headache relief and self-care

A number of steps can be taken to reduce the risk of headaches and to easethe pain if they do occur:
● Apply a heat pack or ice pack to your head or neck, but avoid extremetemperatures.
● Avoid stressing
● Eat regular meals, taking care to maintain stable blood sugar.
● See your chiropractor regularly for adjustment.A hot shower can help, although in one rare condition

hot water exposure cantrigger headaches. Exercising regularly and getting enough rest and regularsleep contributes to overall health and stress reduction.Alternative Headache TreatmentsChiropractic adjustment and manipulation give us a call andmake an appointment for examination.Headache may result from a deficiency of a particular nutrient or nutrients,especially magnesium and certain B vitamins. Nutrient deficiencies can bedue to a poor quality diet.
