“Chiropractic” in Greek means “treatment by hand”, which is essentially what chiropractors do – using hands to treat the body to promote healing and wellness. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive, hands-on, patient-centred, regulated health care classified under Complementary Medicine, as defined by the Ministry of Health.

Chiropractors are the experts of the spine, muscles, joints and nerves. A licensed chiropractor receives at least 4 years of bachelors studies and clinical practice, trained in how to evaluate, diagnose and treat issues arising within these systems. Treatment is focused on alleviating symptoms (ache, pain, stiffness or chronic conditions) that arise from the musculoskeletal system, preventing them from returning, restoring mobility and improving quality of life.


Chiropractic is an effective alternative treatment option for all walks of life, including babies and elderlies. A large majority of our patients are in the 25 – 50 age group. Common conditions that chiropractic can help with include:

  • cervicogenic and tension headaches
  • neck and back pain
  • frozen shoulder
  • rotator cuff injury
  • carpal tunnel / wrist injuries
  • tennis/ golfer’s elbow
  • iliotibial band friction syndrome
  • knee pain/ osteoarthritis
  • scoliosis
  • sciatica
  • whiplash injury
  • ankle sprain
  • pregnancy related pains
  • pain associated with arthritis
  • joint pain dysfunction
  • slipped disc


Before any treatment is administered, a thorough consultation and physical assessment will be performed to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for chiropractic care. If needed, we may also order a diagnostic imaging test to further understand your musculoskeletal condition.

After learning about your symptoms and finding out the causes to your discomfort, a unique treatment plan will then be recommended to you based on the best available evidence. Depending on individuals’ needs, treatment can include:

  • manual, “hands-on” adjustments
  • trigger point therapy
  • electronic modalities such as high intensity laser or shockwave therapy
  • customised exercise programs and stretches
  • proper ergonomics and self management techniques for relief and prevention of injuries
  • advice and education on nutrition, diet, weight, stress management and general health

Does it hurt?

Similar to what you may feel after a good workout, chiropractic adjustments instil little to no pain. Specific, controlled amount of force will be applied to your joints, which creates a “popping” sound as the gas in your joints escape. This may sound painful but in fact, is not.
