Frequently Asked Questions
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic, recognized by the World Health Organization, is a health-care profession that is concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of musculoskeletal system and its associated effects on the surrounding structures such as nerves. Chiropractic is a separate and distinct profession, and is not a medical or dental qualification. Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery.
Are Chiropractors considered Doctors?
A Chiropractor is a primary care provider who specializes in spinal health and well-being by focusing on the prevention, diagnosis and conservative care of spine-related disorders and other painful joint issues. In addition to adjustments, Chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching and nutritional advice.
Chiropractors are not medical doctors. Instead, they graduate from Chiropractic Colleges/Universities with a doctoral professional degree where they are conferred the title "Doctor of Chiropractic", D.C.
Do we sell packages?
Our chiropractors are members of The Chiropractic Association of Singapore (www.chiropractic.org.sg) and the clinic adhere to the guidelines set out the association. We believe that every patient's condition is different and that recovery rates differ depending on a myriad of factors. Instead, we assess our patient's condition during each visit and advise on the follow up based on the progress of the condition.
Are scans such as X-rays needed for treatment?
Depending on your condition/history, the Chiropractor may request for further tests/imaging such as X-rays or MRI. However, it is not compulsory in order to receive treatment. Otherwise, if available, do bring prior scans/medical reports for the Chiropractor to review during your visit.
