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
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain

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.

Visited Dr Jason on 6th March 2022 due to acute back pain where I cannot even stand, sit, sleep and walk properly. During my first visit I had to borrow my mom’s walking stick in order to walk, and I needed someone to help me up when I was sitting down. After the first 2 sessions, my pain eased greatly and I can sit/sleep better and I can walk freely without the help of the walking stick. After 9 sessions with Dr Jason, I can say that everything is pretty much well and I’m back to my usual self. So thankful towards Dr Jason!

Live Well Chiropractic, from front desk staff to the Doctors everyone is so welcoming and accommodating. Service is impeccable and staffs were on point every time I drop by to visit. Booking appointment was a breeze because of the WhatsApp function they have which made communication seamless. My chiropractor was Dr. Kenney. One I would recommend besides Dr Jessie. Attention to detail and precise with all the adjustments. I will definitely go back to them for spine health and any injuries related. Thank you for taking care of me.

Staff at Live Well are friendly and accomdating to my schedule when I need to reschedule my appointment. I came in with constant shoulder and neck ache accompanied with tension headache, and lower back ache. Dr Kenny has been providing adjustments for my spine, and given me the knowledge on maintaining a good posture and stretching exercises. Now, my shoulder, neck ans lower back ache episodes have decrease, and I have lesser tension headaches.

Dr Jason is very experienced and i trust him to treat my condition which has improved tremendously over the past 9 months. I have multiple disc degeneration causing pins and needles with my fingers. Seeing him regularly helps to keep my neck, spine in good condition, alleviating symptoms that i used to face.

I woke up one morning (4 years ago) in pain and unable to turn my neck, after sleeping in a bad posture. Usually this takes 1-2 weeks to recover on its own. Desperate and in so much discomfort, I decided to give Chiropractic a try, and visited Dr Jason (now in Live Well Chiropractic). To my surprise, all it took was just one treatment from him and I had instant relief! Ever since, I have been regularly going to Dr Jason for the past 4 years. The frequencies of my bad neck aches lessened significantly and my posture has also improved tremendously. Friendly, very experienced, reliable and most importantly effective! I will definitely recommend Dr Jason to anyone who wants to give Chiropractic a try and I am convinced that you will be the next one giving him a great testimony like myself 😊

I have been going to chiro with Dr Jason for more than 8 years, from treatment stage to maintenance stage now. I was in really bad shape, the pain in my lower back was so severe that I couldn’t even sit for more than 5 minutes without feeling pain as my protruding disc was pressing on my nerves. I tried TCM treatments and physiotherapy. These treatments didn’t work for me. I am grateful that I found Dr Jason. He was friendly and patient, taking the time to understand my condition, saw my x-rays and MRI scan. He told me that my condition could be improved. No hard selling. For the first few weeks, I had to go for treatments more regularly. My condition improved very quickly that the number of times I needed to go for treatments every week reduced. Now, I no longer feel pain when I sit for long periods of time! He is the number 1 doctor that I go to for any body pain. When my wrist and elbow hurt, he could feel the slightest misalignments and adjusted them back in place for me. Thank you Dr Jason! :)
