FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO I HAVE TO BUY A TREATMENT PACKAGE? 

No, you do not have to buy a treatment package.  We do not sell any treatment packages as we feel that they are totally unethical in almost every clinic that uses them.

WHAT CONDITIONS DO YOU TREAT AT YOUR CLINIC? 

Please see the following link, Conditions We Treat

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO FIX MY INJURY?

The cost of treatment all depends on the type of injury and its current state.  Some conditions take only a few visits while others may require multiple visits for many months.  In general, most patients do not require months and months of treatment.  In fact, most conditions can be easily fixed within a few visits or weeks (as long as the injuries are fairly recent).

DO I NEED X-RAY OR MRI FOR MY CONDITION? 

Imaging such as x-ray, MRI, CT, and ultrasound scans are all used to help confirm your diagnosis.  In many cases, imaging is not needed, but sometimes it is needed to confirm your diagnosis or to see what the real problem is.  In general, the majority of patients do not need any imaging.  However, many offices and clinics mandate that every patient get an x-ray before they start any treatment. These x-rays are then used to sell treatment packages, as they use the x-rays to show you how bad your condition is.  We do not believe or condone in this type of practice.  Imaging is to be used to identify your problem or see how your problem has progressed.  There are cases, such as in scoliosis, where we need to have x-rays every six months in order to see the spinal curvature progression.  But most conditions do not require this type of imaging frequency.

WHAT ARE THE METHODS OF PAYMENT THAT IS ACCEPTED?

Currently we accept cash and NETS only. We most likely will accept credit cards in the near future since many patients have requested it. 

DO I NEED TO CONTINUE TO TAKE PAIN MEDICATION?

Pain medication is all metabolized and processed in the liver and kidneys. It is best not to take any pain medicines or any medicines at all if you do not have to.  So if you leave our office and you feel better, then you most likely can reduce or stop taking your pain medicine, at least temporarily.  It is also a good practice to stop taking the pain medication in order to feel if there is any real pain that is still present. 

CAN I SEE OTHER DOCTORS WHILE ATTENDING YOUR CLINIC? 

Can I see other doctors while attending your clinic?

You can see other doctors while getting treatment in our clinic as long as there is no conflict of interest.  That means whatever treatment we do will not be affected by some other treatment that another healthcare professional will be performing, and vice-versa. 

WHAT IS THE CHIROPRACTIC ASSOCIATION (SINGAPORE)?

​The Chiropractic Association (Singapore) is an organization that promotes the Chiropractic profession in Singapore and internationally both for its members and for the general public.  For more information about the Association please click on the link below.

WHAT TYPES OF TREATMENTS DO YOU PERFORM IN THE OFFICE?

In general, treatments in the office consist of Chiropractic manipulation or “adjustments”, physiotherapy, manual therapy, strengthening, mobilization, electrotherapy, ultrasound, infrared light therapy, stretching, nutrition therapy, and lifestyle changes.  If you are doing sports or other activities, we can recommend changes to help your performance or ways on how to decrease your chances of injuries.

CAN I RETURN TO MY NORMAL DAILY ACTIVITIES?

Most patients can return to their everyday activities once they start feeling better.  Most patients are encouraged to test out their injured areas in order to measure their improvement.

CAN I RETURN TO SPORTS AND OTHER STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES?

Again this all depends on your injury and the type of injury you have and if your injury is well enough for you to take on a lot more forces and stresses in the tissues that were injured.  Most people are able to return to some level of sports but it all depends on the recovery process of the individual patient.  In some cases, patients may not be able to return to their sports, or they might have to reduce the intensity.  This may also be for a short time, or it can be permanent in some cases.  It all depends on the injured structures and if they are able to heal properly.
