  1. Knee Pain: Cause vs Effect

    Knee Pain: Cause vs Effect Knee pain has always been a big problem for human beings, especially as we age. But even younger people can experience achy knees typically from sports and accidents. If you go to the doctor to check your painful knee, and it is not a surgical condition, he will usually give you a prescription for anti inflammatory and pain medication. If this doesn't work he may inject the knee with anti inflammatory drugs. If that doesn't work he may recommend physical therapy. The main focus is on the symptom... not the cause. What they often don't realize is that the cause of the problem might be in the feet, the pelvis, or low back. These areas must be checked as well for proper balance and positioning. A twisted pelvis, for example, can lead to improper muscle tone in the thighs resulting in imbalanced pulling on the knees. Likewise, if the nerves from the low back are irritated, the areas serviced by those nerves, like leg muscle and the knee joint, may become inflamed and painful. Just using pills or injections may not correct the underlying cause of the condition. Doctors of chiropractic are specially trained to examine not only the knee joint itself, but also the feet, pelvis, and low back to see if they are properly balanced and functioning correctly. If you need additional care, we are always ready to refer if indicated. If you had a stone in your shoe, would you take a pill to get rid of the pain? Of course not... you would take off your shoe and get the stone out, right? The same should be true about most health conditions, like knee pain. Take care of the cause and the symptoms will usually disappear too. Call us to see if we can help you! 094-949-9614 or 02-639-7300

  4. Oh My Aching Back!! Dr Chase of Thaichiro explains Back pain is the number #1 health complaint in the world. According to the world health organization, about 10% of the general population suffer with low back pain. That means that worldwide, hundreds of millions of people suffer with this complaint. Combine this with those suffering with neck pain and mid back pain, as well as those burdened with other consequences of spine irritation, such as headaches, shoulder pain, leg numbness and pain, knee pain, and weakness, and there could be over a billion people worldwide suffering the effects of spine dysfunction. Over 90% of these people don’t need surgery or strong medications. Their main problem is spinal mechanical dysfunction resulting from accidents and injuries, but mainly from poor posture and muscle imbalance. Taking medications, while seeming to relieve the symptoms, do nothing for the underlying cause and can even make you drug dependent. And just doing exercises may also lead to more dysfunction because of underlying imbalance. At the natural healing center our focus is on not only on relieving your symptoms, be they pain, numbness or weakness, but more importantly to work toward fixing the underlying cause of your complaint. Our licensed professionals work with you to help you understand the reasons why you ended up unwell and give you strategies to help you avoid illness in the future. Our care is very safe, comfortable and affordable. And if you need other care, we will readily make that clear to you. Contact us at: 094-949-614(e), 02-639-7300(t) or visit us at our website at www.thaichiro.com to learn more about how we can help you!
  5. Why I do what I do - by Dr Chase, from Thai Chiro People often ask me why I became a Chiropractor. Well, it probably started when I was a child. You see, my father was a Chiropractor and always took care of me and my 5 siblings. We held the record at school for the family with the fewest days off for sickness! True! Then later, while playing American football in high school, I was "speared" from behind and lay on the ground unable to stand up. The team doctor said I would probably need surgery. But after my dad's treatments I was able to return to play in a week! While in university I thought I would follow in the steps of my older sister and brother and become a MD. I studied hard and was accepted at a medical school in Pennsylvania. But my father thought I would make a good Chiropractor and urged me to reconsider. You know, some- times you are too close to something to truly appreciate it. So I studied more about it and the philosophy and approach made perfect sense so I changed direction and went to Palmer Chiropractic College in Iowa. 35 years later I am still happy with my choice as helping people lead a healthier and happier life still gives me great satisfaction. And working here in Bkk for over 11 of those years, I really enjoy meeting and treating people from around the world who are interested in good health naturally. So, if you need a good chiropractic treatment, give us a call. Dr. Chase/Dr Adams. 0949499614 www.thaichiro.com

  10. How to buy and invest in property in Phuket PHUKET: Panuwat Somrit is a Phuket lawyer specializing in property. He has been practicing law for the past six years. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law from Ramkhamhaeng University. Here he talks about how to buy and invest in property in Phuket. Buying or investing in property may seem like a straightforward and easy transaction. You simply pay the money, transfer the ownership and that’s it. However, it’s not that way in Thailand. If it were, there wouldn’t be so many issues related to buying property here. Many foreigners face problems after they have already bought property. They have to appear in court to fight cases, which is a huge waste of time and money. One such recent issue was at Aspasia. In March 2015, ten foreign tenants from the Aspasia Phuket Resort, led by Dutch national Jan Cornelis van Zuilekom, complained to Phuket Governor Chamroen Tipayapongtada that they had been locked out of their rooms and had their electricity and water cut off. The tenants wanted the management to provide them with financial reports, but their request was refused. They then stopped paying the maintenance fee, which resulted in their electricity and water being cut off. The management team claimed that the tenants had no right to see the reports according to their contract, which is why they were punished by having their electricity and water cut off. All of this, the company said, was written clearly in the Management Agreement. This example can be used as a good lesson for others to exercise caution, as there are many similar cases of this nature in Phuket. The problem with this arrangement is the ignorance of both parties – the buyer and the project owner – about the management plan or management agreement, after buying or investing in the property. Buyers or investors mostly focus on the buying and selling agreement, but nobody pays much attention to the management plan. Most buyers and investors are unaware of what else that they have to pay, or what terms and conditions apply for when they live in that property after becoming the owner of it. There are two types of property investment: leasehold and freehold. Leasehold is a long-term rental that can last up to a maximum of 90 years, but the contract has to be renewed every 30 years. A freehold transaction is when you actually buy the property. Every property in Thailand falls under Thai law, as well as each private business’s own regulations. Therefore, investors, especially foreigners, have to be careful and study these laws before they decide to buy or lease under a freehold or leasehold agreement. Most buyers are cautious when deciding how much they have to pay up front and how much they need from the bank. However, it’s what happens afterwards that causes so many problems. For example, in some cases, owners have the right to vote on how much in maintenance fees they are willing to pay per year. They also have the right to see the financial documents showing the usage of the maintenance fee, as well as to examine how the juristic persons work. This is usually the case in condominiums. In other types of property, the project owner or management team has the right to decide on how they will utilize the maintenance fee. They can even set their own price for water and electricity. The tenants or owners have no right to be involved with management. They just have to pay the maintenance fees as required. Therefore, everything depends on the management agreement between the buyer and project owner. As a lawyer, I strongly advise all parties to carefully consider the management agreement before making any buying or investment decisions. This will highlight what you can or can’t do after you have bought, what the management’s responsibilities are, etc. Be careful: read the management agreement thoroughly and do not limit your focus solely on the buying and selling agreement.

  12. Those boots are made for … well, erm, walking of course! Chatham Marine’s very British footwear I can’t remember whether the title of Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 hit, ‘These boots are made for walking’ ever won an award for ‘Stating the bleeding obvious in a Song title,’ but it deserved to. At least Ol’ Blue Eyes’ darling daughter put footwear front and centre like no other song before or since. I was 12 years old at the time, so I never saw the boots in question. I was transfixed by Nancy’s micro, micro mini-skirt which my father told me at the time was probably illegal and could have got her 10 years on Alcatraz. Fifty years later you can’t walk down a High Street without passing three or four shoe shops. I suppose we’ll need shoe shops for as long as we need feet — unless Brexit goes completely pear shaped and austerity condemns us to go around in our stocking soles.

  13. Neck and shoulder pain syndrome Technology has been amazing…cars, computers, smartphones, tv’s and more. They have really changed our life. Unfortunately, one of the side effects of these incredible machines has been the explosive increase in neck and shoulder pain. The forward bending of the head and neck while driving, working on computers, playing on our smartphones and watching tv creates powerful stresses on the bones, discs, muscles, and nerves in the neck and shoulders. Add to this the overuse of our arm and shoulder while driving, mousing, and fingering screens, and you can see why we call the resultant aches and pains, “neck and shoulder pain syndrome”. This is much more than the typical “office syndrome”. It also includes the additional stress from driving, playing with your phone, propping your head up white reading or watching tv, and so much more! That gnawing, burning, aching pain can really torture your life! This condition is exploding all over with more and more people seeking help and relief. Even the numbers for neck surgery have been shooting up due to the neck degeneration caused by this condition over time. The sad truth is that this is all unnecessary. If people only knew how to properly treat this condition, and understood how to prevent it in the future, there would be much less pain and anguish in society today. At the natural healing center/thai chiro, our expertly trained and friendly staff can assist you in recovering from the pain and anguish of this condition, without drugs or surgery, and teach you strategies of how to avoid the condition in the future.

  15. Why Chiropractic?

    Why Chiropractic? Today, many people are looking for non-medical, more natural solutions to their health concerns. That is why you see so many “alternative” health care approaches springing up. While some of these approaches may have some value, most of their practitioners are not licensed doctors nor do their approaches pass scientific scrutiny. These reasons, amongst others, distinguish the licensed profession of chiropractic from most of the other “alternative” forms of care. Doctors of chiropractic are licensed health professionals. To become a chiropractor, one has to study a minimum of 6 years, taking as many hours in the basic human sciences as in medical school. Then a series of stringent professional and government examinations must be passed in order to be licensed. Here in Thailand only 28 doctors of chiropractic are licensed to practice. Our clinics have 2 of them! Chiropractic is very widespread in the u.S.A., and around the world. Millions of people receive chiropractic treatments daily. Professional and Olympic sports teams also use chiropractic to heal injuries and improve overall performance naturally. Even Usain Bolt uses chiropractic to help him set records. And after 10 years of extensive research by the army surgeons general, chiropractic is now available for the U.S. Armed services, having been found safe, effective, and economical. Chiropractic was added even though they already had orthopedists and physical therapists. That shows how impressive the research results were! Also, the malpractice rates for chiropractic are way lower than medical for the same amount of coverage. That means we are much safer, for all ages…babies, pregnancies, athletes, the aged, and all who want better health and a better life…naturally! Doctors of chiropractic are well educated and well trained to analyse your health to determine if there may be interference within your nervous system which may be leading to illness or decreased performance. They are trained to analyse x-rays and MRI results as well as review blood tests to determine if you are a good candidate to benefit from chiropractic care, or if you may need a referral for other care. The actual care given by a chiropractor may vary from clinic to clinic because in addition to being scientifically based, chiropractic is also an art. It is mainly done with the hands, though some therapeutic machines may be used. The art is why some people may respond to one type of chiropractic treatment better than another. So while you may not have achieved desired results from one chiropractor, you may do better with another chiropractic approach. So, now that you know more about chiropractic, what are you waiting for? Call us today at the Natural Healing Center: 094-949-9614(E), 02-639-7300(T); www.thaichiro.com

  23. Making your money work harder Generally speaking, we all work hard for our money and therefore we want our savings to work hard for us in return. Basically, this means investing our money wisely to get healthy return whilst at the same time not exposing us to too much risk. The problem is finding these types of investments as low risk usually means low returns. You therefore need to establish how much risk you are willing to expose yourself to and with this in mind, the return that you realistically expect. Most investors these days wish to expose themselves to a low to medium amount of risk. Therefore, investors are probably looking at returns of between 5% p.a. and 10% p.a. with the medium risk investments being at the upper end. To get this sort of return over the medium to long term the types of investments will be things such as some mutual funds and property. Property is often the investment of choice but usually requires greater capital outlay. Investment properties are for the most part good investments. If purchased in the right location for the right price they have a good chance of capital growth and earning the annual returns that we are talking about. The downside is that there can often be quite a lot of work involved in terms of managing the property so some investors choose to employ the services of a property management company although this does significantly eat away at the ROI. It is maybe for this reason that we have seen an increase in the number of rental guarantee concepts that bring together property management and a healthy return. As the name suggests, these concepts come with guarantees usually in the form of what annual return you can expect to receive and for how long you will receive it. This gives investors a greater level of certainty and increased security as well as greatly reducing the workload of the investor. Obviously, it pays to do your research on those offering the rental guarantee concept to ensure that the scheme is mutually beneficial and that they a financially sound. As with almost all things in life, anything that sounds too good to be true probably is so always keep in mind the levels of return that mentioned above. As a guide, you should expect the returns to be guaranteed for five years. Several of these schemes have been setup in Thailand with the 5-star hotels getting in on the act as well as well known, established developers such as the New Nordic Group. Focusing on the offers available from the hotels you would have to say these are impressive and should be particularly appealing to cautious investors. After all, the deals are available in hotels managed by giant organisations so have superb financially backing, are fantastically run and always in prime locations. The three notable offers available at present are in Pattaya and Phuket. The scheme in Pattaya is available in the completed Amari Hotel and offers investors a healthy return of 5% p.a. guaranteed for five years with predicted returns of 8% p.a. in following years. As the project is completed nervous investors should get all the reassurances that they need. The rental guarantee concepts in Phuket and are offered in the Best Western and Ramada hotels. These projects are both still under construction and the returns offered are marginally higher to reflect this. In both deals the return is 7% p.a. guaranteed for five years with projected future earnings of above 10% p.a. All three deals have the benefit of being in hotels managed by these world-renowned brands. Make your money worker harder for you by investing in one of these rental guarantee concepts whilst exposing yourself to very little risk. - Is now the time to invest in Thailand?
