What is Spinal Orthotics?

Spinal orthotics is a means used to help restore healthy spinal curvatures. Your spine naturally has optimal curvatures which act as a shock absorber helping to reduce day to day physical joint stress.

With the advancement of modern technology and more sedentary lifestyles, these curves can start to shift over time. These shifts can start to create problems over time such as muscle aches, muscle tightness, headaches, nerve compression, poor function and spinal damage. This happens as long term shifts in the spine start to create unnecessary pressure and start to create compensation patterns.

Once these misalignments are identified, spinal orthotics can be used to restore and improve spinal alignment and posture. Spinal orthotics is made out of firm foam which is shaped to the spines natural alignments, by using spinal orthotics in the correct manner, it helps to lengthen out ligaments, reduce muscle tension and restore normal curvatures of the spine.

After the first few visits, my lower back started to feel a lot better. And I began to regain my mobility. This is all due to the regular adjustments and decompression therapy as recommended by Dr Jessie. I've also done my due diligence to regularly stretch and do core exercises that helps with the recovery as recommended by Dr Jessie.

I have been coming here for back and shoulder pain for the past two months, definitely seeing improvement as the shoulders do not feel as tight anymore. My back pain has been gradually fading away and overall, moving feels easier now. The front desk has been very helpful, they are very prompt with their replies especially when i make sudden changes in my appointment timing.

One day after work, I experienced pain deep within the right rhomboid area, right shoulder blades and neck pains. It felt like a stiff neck but more intense. After 2 weeks, hoping it would naturally go away, it didn’t. It was very uncomfortable and sometimes painful which resulted in me taking some pain killers. So that’s when I decided to try Chiro. I was assigned with Dr. Siew Wei at the Rivervale Mall Branch and was advised to go for a 20 session package, which I did. After about 4 sessions, is when I started to feel some improvement. Yes, it takes time and it’s not an immediate result. By the 10th Session, most of the pain was gone and by the 18th session. I’m back to normal. Dr. Siew Wei is friendly and knowledgeable, and I’m glad that she had managed to cure away the pain. Thank you.

Have been with Livewell Sengkang about 3 months now, and have nothing but good stuff to say about them. Firstly the service from the front desk is great, with very quick replies and very flexible whenever I have to make last minute changes to my time slot. Very glad with the friendliness of the staff and how convenient they make my booking of sessions! As for my doctor, Dr Kenny gave clear explanations from the very start, is extremely friendly and easy to talk to, which I appreciate. Went here to correct my neck posture as well as my hunchback, which I do see myself improving and being more conscious about as the sessions go on. Feel a lot lighter and easier to stand straight after each session. Overall a very comfortable experience, really recommend!
