What is a Chiropractor?

A Chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis & treatment of neuromuscular disorders through manual adjustment or manipulation of the spine.


What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractic adjustments are techniques chiropractors use to improve function, increase range of motion and release pressure on nerves. It is carried out by the chiropractor applying a short, quick force to the area of interest.

Why are Chiropractic Adjustments Important?

Chiropractic adjustments focus on the aging spine and its various abnormalities. Chiropractors utilise gentle adjustments, physical therapy, stretching and exercise regimens to reduce spinal pain and improve flexibility and mobility. These adjustments minimize degeneration and spinal stress which allows our body to function optimally and prevent long-term problems.


What Problems can Chiropractic Adjustments Help with?

Each person who seeks chiropractic adjustment has a unique reason for their appointment, but all chiropractic adjustments treat your musculoskeletal system. Some people choose to have a chiropractic adjustment if they have the following conditions:

  • Headaches
  • Joint pain and dysfunction
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Sciatica
  • Stiff muscles or muscle aches
  • Slipped disc/disc herniation
  • Scoliosis
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pregnancy related concerns (postnatal and prenatal)

Chiropractors make sure not only that your joints are moving properly, but also that your surrounding muscles are functioning as well.

Patient case study

Prolonged desk work for extended hours start to increase disc pressure and muscle tightness. Adjustments help to reduce muscle hypertonicity, increase range of motion and reduce compounded disc pressure.

What is a Joint Dysfunction?

Our body is interconnected; it relies on our brain to send signals to them regularly to function properly—also known as the motor function. Likewise, when the skin or muscle feels something, it will send those signals to the brain to notify it. In this case, it is the sensory function.

The nervous system carries signals which originate from our brain and spinal cord. The spinal cord is a direct extension of our brain (together, they make the central nervous system) which branches out to our entire body via smaller nerves we collectively name the peripheral nervous system.

As the spinal cord runs in between our spine, any form of dysfunction in between the spinal joints would put pressure on the nerves. A pinched nerve will disturb the signalling system; which leads to pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, or other symptoms being felt not in the spine but in other parts of the body.  


What Causes This Dysfunction?

In a healthy body, aligned spinal joints allow optimal body function without presenting any pain or weakness. This ideal alignment is maintained and held by our muscles & ligaments that surround the joint or spine.

They also help to reduce compressive loads onto the spinal disc. It allows our nerves to travel freely around the spine without pinching or compression. Spinal joints are independent and move freely from each other.

It enables flexibility for joints to move; it also allows the joints to move out of alignment when excessive or repetitive forces are applied. It can be caused by:

  • Traumatic excessive force (car accident, fall, etc.)
  • Muscle contractions that pull joints out of alignment (excessive unilateral exercises, muscle injury, etc.)
  • Poor posture (prolonged use of mobile phone/laptop, etc.)
  • Repetitive motions on one side (occupational hazard, etc.)
  • Genetic deformities (scoliosis)

What our patients have to say about us

What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments?

Chiropractic adjustments are a natural method which allows the restoration of natural function enabling our body to heal naturally. There is no need for medications as well as invasive surgeries. Many studies as well as patient proofing ( link to testimonial part) indicate that it is an effective way to relieve pain/muscle spasms, increase range of motion and prevent musculoskeletal health conditions.


What Happens During a Chiropractic Adjustment?

Chiropractors use different methods to perform chiropractic adjustments. Most common methods include manual hand spinal adjustments, activators, joint mobilisations as well as soft tissue stretching and releases. These techniques all have one goal in mind, which is to remove joint dysfunction.

During an adjustment, we often hear a pop or crack sound.  This comes from the synovial fluid which lubricates and protects the joints. Over time, gases can build up in joints and adjustments help to release these gases to ensure proper function.

I had suffer lower back slip disc at my L4 bone for 13 years. Way back, i had went to hospital for MRI scan, refer to bone specialist and even tried TCM but non of them work well. Time and money spend in the past but the aching/pain just cannot resolve hence at one point of time i had already given up the hope for my slip disc and have the mind set to just live with the pain forever. Recently, happen to saw Chiropractic Ads in my facebook so i decided to give it a try. Did some research online and found LiveWell Sengkang so decided to give it a last tried. Dr Siew Wei was my chiropractor. After 2 session with Dr Siew Wei, realize my back was not as ache as before and surprisingly my body movement had improved as previously due to the aching/pain my body movement when straightening my back is like having this one to two sec pain/aching lag time whenever i bend down and up to do thing. Somehow, Chiropractic improve my body movement and daily lifestyle so I decided to sign up for a 20 session with Dr Siew Wei to continue maintaining my back ache. Overall, i feel the time and money spend is really worth here as I can really see the result here after 2 session with Dr Siew Wei.

I had an ankle surgery 6 months ago and with a scoliosis, it definitely affected my walking during rehabilitation. And I also suffered from severe back pain. with proper exercises, stretching and Chiropractic treatment with Dr. Jessie. I definitely feel a huge improvement on my walking and there’s lesser back pain. Dr. Jessie is a very well versed Chiropractor, she is also very friendly and tends to every patient with different specific treatment. I had chiro treatment done few years back and this is definitely a better clinic! Also I would like to thank the counter staff for always being flexible with my timing.

Made an appt after feeling stiff necks and shoulders. Attended to by Dr Kenney. Recommended to do an x-ray and realised I have cervical neck. Now midway to the treatment and feeling much better. Even the chest tightness I used to have, is also better now (yes, chest tightness or pain can be caused by chiropractic issues). Definitely recommend - most of time, the appt are punctual and treatments are fast.

Dr Kenney is very professional and patient. He will check with you any pain and adjust treatment accordingly. There is no pain for doing chiropractic unlike surgery. Though it will take some times to improve body condition progressively.
