#MOVEMENTMATTERS For Better Bone And Joint Health

IHH Malaysia MovementMatters Campaign for Better Bone and Joint Health


According to the International Association for the Study of Pain, close to 2.5 million Malaysians suffer from back pain as a result of a sedentary work-from-home lifestyle that has emerged from the pandemic.

At IHH Healthcare Malaysia hospitals, most of our orthopaedic patients are presented with disc displacement, strains and sprains, as well as general trauma and fractures attributed to sports and other injuries.

IHH Malaysia Chief Executive Officer Jean-François Naa said, “We want to let people know not to take minor pain or discomfort lightly. By sharing validated information and extending our medical expertise, we hope to build healthier communities as part of our aspiration to #CareForGood.

“If you think about it, a healthy diet and physical activity are basically what keep your bones and joints healthy. Even doing simple exercises, as long as you do it regularly, can make a huge positive difference. What we do not want is to let bone-related conditions or diseases get in the way of us staying active and healthy,” he added.

The #MovementMatters campaign will be launched in three regions, kicking off in Kuala Lumpur (15 to 19 March) before travelling south to Johor (22 to 26 March) and culminating up north in Penang (29 March to 1 April).
