What Others Say
Chiropractic care is a patient-centred, non-invasive, hands-on, regulated health care profession worldwide, focusing on your spine, muscles, joints and nervous system. Chiropractors use the best available evidence through performing tests, scans, palpation and taking X-rays and MRI when necessary, as well as clinical expertise to holistically analyse conditions and nervous system interference. Through the assessments, causes and issues that affect your body’s ability to perform at its best are identified and adjustments are performed to alleviate and/or assist in elimination of the problems.
Chiropractors use a gentle, specific and tailored adjustment to the spine, upper and lower extremities using the hands and/or instruments to complement the adjustment.
Chiropractors are the largest non-allopathic profession globally after medical doctors and dentists. Globally, chiropractors receive similar training as a medical doctor and/or dentist.
Chiropractic care may, however, not be suitable for every individual, depending on the complexity, severity and type of conditions.
Yes. Both the elderly and children can benefit from chiropractic care. The adjustment techniques will be tailored to their conditions and needs. At Dr. Chiro, we practise both high force and low force chiropractic techniques. Besides adjusting for health problems, aches and pains, chiropractic care is also useful for maintaining good health and prevention of illnesses.
Generally, chiropractic care is safe and effective in relieving and eliminating pain, numbness, tingling, aches and discomfort. If you have pre-existing health condition that can interfere with chiropractic adjustments, further evaluation of the condition is necessary.
Adjustments may result in brief discomfort due to the realignment of the nervous system and body. The “cracking” noise is simply releasing pressure and nitrogen gas build-up in the spine and joints. Soreness may occur for some individuals, lasting approximately 12-24 hours due to the body’s natural way of adapting to the new alignment and posture.
Everyone’s conditions are different. We do not believe in a cookie cutter approach in our chiropractic care. Our approach and techniques used depend on the complexity, severity, extent and duration of the condition and problem. Generally, the first session involves consultation, scans, clinical assessment and determining if the condition requires X-ray or MRI. A tailored care plan will be formulated to treat the condition(s). If no red-flags are detected, the first adjustment will proceed. This usually lasts between 30 minutes and 45 minutes.
Subsequent sessions include a short follow-up consultation to assess the condition, followed by adjustment. These usually last 10-20 minutes. For those with recurring and chronic issues, re-assessment may be necessary usually after 12 sessions or when clinically required. This is in line with the recommendations of the Chiropractic Association of Singapore. Wellness and health maintenance care is also available for individuals not suffering from any chronic conditions.
For those with existing or chronic conditions, you may bring your past and current medical, X-ray and MRI Reports for reference assessment.
Wear comfortable clothing like pants and track suit to move through the chiropractic session in a more effortless manner. Most important, come with an open mind and bring along a smile!
Singapore is the only first world country in the world where chiropractic is not formally regulated as a mainstream health profession. The Ministry of Health has classified chiropractic care as alternative medicine and has stated that self-regulation through the Chiropractic Association of Singapore is sufficient.
Members of the Chiropractic Association of Singapore are accredited Chiropractors who must meet relevant international credentials and training, and must abide by the Association’s code of ethics and standards.
