FOREWORD

The first time I met Shamsul was when he started working in the Physiotherapy Unit Sri Kota Specialist Medical Center Klang in the middle of 2001. He is a very quiet man although he knows a lot about the patients. Nevertheless, my patients ‘like’ meeting with him. This is because they say that the manual treatment that he gave was very effective especially in cases involving muscloskeleter problems. Undoubtelly, from the look in his eyes, I know that he has a secret that will change the world of medicine that he is involved at the moment. His research of nearly 10 years about Trigger points is worth his while for he has found the Human electromagnetic system. As far as I am concerned, I never have before heard or come about a system as complete as his. The trigger points that he has shown are truly complete and well balanced in terms of the location and numbers. In the medical field, trigger points are of invaluable use in treating cases like tendinoses, tendonopathies, periostitis, myogeloses and many more. Injections with corticosteroid solution can reduce the trigger point symptoms but in physiotherapy the uses of these points are not clear. This is due to lack of the research especially in orthopeadic cases. My perception, nevertheless, has been changed when I met Shamsul and knowing that his techniques are able to treat many muscloskeleter cases effectively. It is hard to believe that a local Perak born has outshone the western researchers who are still uncertain about the points and system. With the publishing of this book, all uncertainties can thus be clearified. I am very proud and would recommend this first book of my friend be used by Modern Medical Practitioners. I am very sure and I believe that this technique would be very effective in reducing muscloskeleter problems in the early and middle stages. To all researchers, they need to find reasons to elaborate further the use of this system. Thank you.

PREWORD

Shamsul Azhar Mahmood Physiotherapist “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious and Most Merciful”

The development of movement for mankind starts when man is born. This physical development begins from the bottom, that is from the lying position, crawling, sitting, kneeling, standing, running, climbing and jumping. The science of human movement is called kinesiology. In the study of kinesiology, we also learn about structures of the anatomy like joints, muscles and nerves. These structures are important because they are the basic parts for movement apart from other structures. This is the creations by Allah the Creator, the Greatest Architect of all, the Creator of mankind. Every movement needs energy that comes from the food we eat daily and in turn is used by the body cells for daily activities. This food is being carried into and out of the cells by active transportation with the aid of electro-magnetic energy (produced by the human electro-magnetic system still not fully known or explained by any medical journals before). This process is repeated until the body gets sufficient energy to activate the cells metabolism process. I dare say this system exist in influencing the balance of activities of the living cells. This theory exists from basic clinical evidence, positive effects in patient treatments and research data that were done (explained in chapter 15) Other than balancing the cell activities, it also serves to repair the broken cells and to reduce pain caused by injuries to the outside or inside cells. How does this happen? Many theories have arisen in explaining pain. One very popular and practiced theory these days is the Pain Gate Theory. It explains that the pain impulse journey through fibril A and C of the peripheral nerves at difference stations of the main nerves and central nerves can be stopped by various chemical agents (medicine) and physical agents (electrotherapy gadgets in physiotherapy treatment), thus reducing the pain. In my theory of magnetic-electro system, pain is reduced by activating autonomic nerves end with the use of certain chemicals to cause magnetic points

(autonomic nerves ends) or other structures to be excited and to release chemicals. This will certainly cause change to the charges inside and outside of the cell i.e attracting or distracting negative charges (charges existed after metabolism activities) thus controlling the cells activities. The control in the activities of these charges inside and outside of the cell causes the metabolism process rate to increase more than usual. This makes these cells stronger and it overcomes any weakness. Thus the pain, burden and its weakness can be overcome and supported by the cells themselves with the help of the magnetic system. This is a new theory that need to be tested and proven by analysts so as to ensure that the theory can be used in the modern medical world. Other than this, the theory for this system can also be used to explain the reason why pain is reduced in alternative treatment such as meditation, reiki, reflexology and many more. In this book I do not fully elaborate the electro-magnetic system, only 10% , for it is not the appropriate time to do so. Nevertheless, I promise that one day I will come out with a book about the human electro-magnetic system, god willing. This book only explains about the functions and uses of magnetic lines in manual therapy treatment. If after reading this book, you find the lines applicable to other kinds of treatment I welcome the idea. I hope my first book will be accepted by the public and used by modern and alternative practitioners in treating their patients and also to fill the needs in the existing medical field. God willing, my second book, Mechanical Manual Therapy, will be out soon, god willing.

ELECTROMAGNETIC POINTS: HISTORY AND RESEARCH

1.1

Research idea and Interest

The research idea started in early 1995 when I was in my final year of my physiotherapy course. At that time I was to be located at a hospital of my choice by the principal for the last time at the end of my 5th semester. I chose to do my practical at the Ipoh General Hospital Perak but was turned down because the position was already filled. I then chose to do it at Kota Baharu General Hospital in Kelantan. I was there in Kota Baharu where I started my life as a student interested in physiotherapy. Earlier in the course I felt bored because it was not my choice but my mother’s. All I could do then was to carry on with it as I was already half way of through.

To switch to another course, I had to start all over again from the bottom and a lot of time would be wasted. My meeting with the Head of the Physiotherapy Department, Madam Normah Abdul Jalil, changed my perception towards the science and learning of physiotherapy.

She stressed that the illness and pains of the joints, muscles and nerves in physical treatment starts from the body mechanical changes that is from its position first and only then to its structure. Correction to its position will cause the pain to be reduced and cured instantly. Positive results can be observed even in the very first day of treatment. This has opened my mind and made me more interested into probing deeper into the science of physiotherapy.

SHAMSUL MANUAL THERAPY


ELECTRO MAGNETIC LINES MASSAGE THERAPY â—? ___________________________________________________________________________________________

From the general point of view, physiotherapy is meant to cure patients through exercise treatment, manipulation, electrotherapy treatment and counseling. The three common groups that physiotherapist treat are the muscloskeleter (joints, muscles and nerves ailment), cardiopulmonary (diseases of the heart and lungs) and neuromuscular (diseases of the nerve center and spine). In manipulative treatment, there is no systematic and balanced way of massaging. We have come to know about massaging from the west which is 30 to 40 years old. As for the technique of treatments, a lot of hard work is needed and is not suitable to be practiced in Malaysia as Asians have smaller body frame.

The study of magnetic points came about accidentally and unplanned. The idea started from a Sports therapist who came back to Malaysia to show his technique in treating sportsman. His techniques are mainly based on massaging the Malay / Siamese technique which uses the sore points or trigger points. In my observation, the existing sore points or trigger points used are incomprehensive. If these trigger points with acupuncture points in their points group, it is not original to say that acupuncture points are trigger points. This statement is not true because acupuncture points have been around 4000 – 5000 ago years also in China. Its location, function and effectiveness have been known world-wide. Therefore, there is no reason and to say that they are the same. Nevertheless the way he finds these trigger points systematically interest me. Even though he showed one or two methods in his demonstration, it was sufficient to make me realize the existence of points other than the existing acupuncture points.

1.2

Initial Reseach and Finding I started my research after hearing convinced about the presence of points other

then acupuncture points. The initial research was focused on the many points that existed in the body. I referred to many books on alternative treatment and classical and traditional massage for the research. I looked for differences and similarities in functions of these points and also compared the trigger points with existing points on their locations and arrangements, there were obvious differences to one another from what I had obtained.

I finished my studies in physiotherapy in the middle of 1996. The following year I started to work at the Ipoh General Hospital. A year after that I continued with my research focusing mainly on finding these points on the patients body. It became more practical because theoretically these points exist in sore areas. It made them easier to find. Fig: 1.2 shows some of the points found and grouped on the upper limb at the patients.

The arrangement of the points in Fig: 1.2 are scattered and incomplete (inconclusive). There are points that exist by themselves and others close to one another. Looking at these clustered points, they are level to one another in their arrangements at the top and at the bottom or at the inside and the outside. If we look at the creation of the world of all living things (by the one god) we find that everything is created well balanced, systematic, safe and perfect, nothing is out of line or out of place. One simple example is our eyes. Why do they exist in twos and not ones or threes and why are they at the same level or why do are have eyelashes controlling the eye.

The answer is that they are created well balanced, systematic, safe and complete. These four reasons are used to solve the problems concerning the trigger points. The first step is to systemize the location of these points by joining them together and completing their numbers because the existing ones still lack 30%. Praise and thanks to Almighty Allah for having inspired me to join all these points in straight lines from bottom to top and from left to right. As a result of this, empty spaces can be found where these lines meet and also the existence of these trigger points that are grouped together. This discovery was a big surprise and Allah Akbar.

Figure: 1.3 shows the result after having joined the lines in the upper limb. It is now 100% completed and in systematic order. Thanks be to Allah.

When these lines were first discovered, I thought of giving them appropriate names. At first I thought of letting it be called trigger points or may be nerve points because this was where it all started with. Nevertheless, looking at the systematic criteria of the location and the arrangements of the points and making it look like an electric circuit, I decided to change its name to energy points. By general definition, energy means the existing power or force which moves a function onto matter. But does this force or energy exist in these points? Does the name fits the functions? Therefore I decided to be more specific by naming them magnetic energy points. Theoretically, it can be said that these are magnetic reactions within these points.

I seek the truth based on these theory. The opportunity came when by chance a patient complained about his thumb and asked me to treat it. Without delay I started treating the patient by putting my fingers on the two magnetic points connected to the thumb area which were situated on his head. Without putting pressure on these points I told him to take deep long breaths. After a few times, the pain in the thumb vanished and he felt as if the pain was taken out from these points as he inhaled. It made me happy. I did not really understand what had happened in the process but I felt sure that it was something new to be discovered and tested.

1.3 Usage and Effectiveness

After having found the appropriate name for its functions, I began to use it in treating all kinds of physical ailments. Since I spent a lot of time at outpatient, a lot of cases involving joints, muscles, and nerves became my target. Between 1998 and 2004, I treated patients using these magnetic points amounting to the thousands. Some were successful and some were not. It depended on the cause of pain. For example, if the pain was caused by disturbances to the magnetic system; the points are clogged, recovery can be up to a 100%. But if it is due to mechanical or medical problems, recovery is probably around 30 – 50 %.

With my experience, I would say that this system is suitable for the treatment of muscloskeleter, that is points of joints, muscles and nerves compared to the acupuncture points which are suitable for the treatment of internal organs as well as physical problems. This is one of the differences that we can find. There are many more differences between these points but this I shall discuss later.

Theoretically this system can also resolve problems pertaining to alternative medication eg reiki, meditation, yoga, reflexology, massage, shiatsu, wave therapy and a few others. The question that always come to mind is how alternative treatment can reduce pain. What are the mediums available, that help to reduce pain in alternative treatment and what are the effects in treating the sore areas? I would say that it is the effect from the charges inside and outside of the cell. The use of alternative treatment has affected in the increase and decrease of these charges. This occurs either intentionally or otherwise while treatment was applied. This balances the charges. This is the modern, scientific and simple to understand explanation and is acknowledged in the modern medical field.

Using these points resulted in my understanding in detail their functions. It made me deduce that a complete electromagnetic system, which is complete which I believe has never been published anywhere in the world. The system functions as a charge

10

SHAMSUL MANUAL THERAPY


ELECTRO MAGNETIC LINES MASSAGE THERAPY â—? ___________________________________________________________________________________________

balance in the body after an activity of the live cell. Hyperactive cell causes access positive charges in the cell. This may cause the cell to lost a lot of energy. Therefore this system tries to reduce excessive use of energy by releasing negative charges to neutralized the positive charges. The neutrilization of this charges enables cell activities to carry on. This process is repeated until the goal is achieved. There are 8 different ways in the technique that uses this system structure.

1.4 Comparision with Acupuncture points

In this chapter we shall be discussing the differences between magnetic points and acupuncture points. The differences should be mentioned to let reader distinguish the usage and their functions. It is known that acupuncture existed as early as 5000 year ago. It was widely used the end of the 20th century especially in the west. They made researches on its uses and effects in reducing pain. Many books were written and published on this acupunture points and many centers were opened to give training, studies and researches on this matter.

Modern and alternative medicine practitioners may or may not have heard about these magnetic points. I have read books on these magnetic points but the truth could not be fully justified for the writer may have changed the names of these points just to give them a difference in the treatment. Nevertheless the location of these points are the same the acupuncture points. The writers too may not have fully studied about the acupuncture points than mixed them up with all other points. It could also be one way that their book could sell.

I do not want to say anything negative about these books that are incomplete and mixed up but credit should be given for publishing more books on alternate medication. But then again, let them be precise, complete and with reasons. Back to these magnetic points, let me now elaborate them as beside.

Comparisons of the acupuncture and magnetic points:

a)

Magnetic points properly arranged on the magnetic lines (Fig: 1.4) and acupuncture points on meridian lines not in any particular order; dispersed and disarranged.

b)

Magnetic system has 8 lines whereas the acupuncture has 12 meridian lines. The 8 magnetic lines are 1. anterior sagittal 2. posterior sagittal 3. medial sagittal 4. lateral sagittal 5. rotational anterior 6. rotational posterior 7. rotational medial. As for the meridian lines, they are 1. lung meridian 2. large intestine meridian 3. stomach meridian 4. liver meridian 5. heart meridian 6. small intestine meridian 7. bladder meridian 8. kidney meridian 9. liver meridian 10. gallbladder meridian 11. circulation meridian 12. spleen meridian.

c)

The acupuncture system uses the yin and yang principles but the magnetic system uses the positive and negative charges in reasoning out treatment.

d)

Acupuncture uses needles, electricity and fingers to generate the points but electro magnetic uses 100% hand skills to treat patients.

e)

Acupuncture uses the theory based on earth, water, iron, wood and fire in treatment but electromagnet uses the charges of 1-ve, 2 -ve, 1 +ve and 2 +ve.

f)

In electromagnetic treatment, the points are chosen based on the points surrounding the pain area where as acupuncture uses the points based on the meridian line associated with certain organs.

g)

Both depend on the source and condition of the patients in the effectiveness of treatment. Some conditions heal fast while others slow and temporary.

14

SHAMSUL MANUAL THERAPY


ELECTRO MAGNETIC LINES MASSAGE THERAPY â—? ___________________________________________________________________________________________

h)

The electro-magnetic theory is easy to understand and practice and not many points are used during treatment.

j)

The electro-magnetic system is more effective in treating joints, muscles and nerves.

k)

The strength of this system lies in the strength of the hypothalamus i.e. the structure of brain’s center which functions as a dynamo to the body electromagnetic system.

l)

It can be said that the source of the unknown ailment after a variety of diagnosis, starts with this system. This will be elaborated in another chapter.

PART 3 LOWER EXTREMITY – THE KNEE AND THIGH

6.1

Introduction

The knee is constructed by 4 important bones, they are the femur, tibia, fibular and patella. The purpose of each of these bones is to give balance, movement, shape and weight distribution. It also lengthen and shorten the lower extremity. The knee joint is the largest joint at the lower extremity, it give balanced when jumping, squatting and running.

6.2

Joints

1.

Tibiofemoral joint The largest joint in the body. It is a hinge joint. It give excellence stability and free motion for lower limb. It fixed and supported four stronger ligaments, they are anterior cruciate ligament(ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial cruciate ligament (MCL) and lateral cruciate ligament (LCL) and reinforced by capsule that attached around the joint line.

2.

Patellofemoral joint It is a plane joint. One of the function is to prevent friction gliding quarisep

tendon on the femur grove. It stabilize by patella tendon at inferior apec and quadrisep muscle at superior base.

Muscles

1.

Sagittal Muscles ■ Flexor muscle- Sartorius, biceps femoris, semitendonosus and semimembranosus. ■ Extensor muscles - Rectus femoris, vastus intermedius, vastus medialis and vastus lateralis.

2.

Angular Muscles ■ External rotator. It only had small amount of movement especially during extending the knee. A muscle action is biseps femoris. ■ Internal rotator. This movement occur when knee joint flexing behind. The muscles are semimebranosus, semitendinosus, sartorius, gracilis and popliteus.

3.

Coronal muscles ■ Abductor. They was no abduction movement occur at knee joint. Only accessory movement had occur inside the joint, tibial glide laterally or outside. The abductor of the hip help to assisted this accessory movement. ■ Adductor. No adduction movement at the knee joint but the accessory movement occur when knee flexion. Tibial glide medially on femoral usually assisted by adductor muscles of the hip.

Generally it have three main peripheral nerves passing through and supply to the muscles, joints and cutaneous at thigh and knee. The three main peripheral nerves are sciatic, femoral and obturator nerves.

1.

Sciatic Nerve

■ Passing along the posterior- lateral region of the thigh before divide to two branches, tibial nerve and common peroneal nerve . ■ Myotome- Bicep femoris, semitendinosus, semimembranosus, and adductor magnus muscle.

2.

Femoral Nerve

■ Passing inside the femoral triangle, move down and anterior of the thigh. ■ Myotome- illiacus, sartorius and quadrisep. 3.
