The story that changed my life…
When I was about 20 years old, I suffered serious lower back pain from a basketball injury. Someone knocked my lower back from behind while I was in the air. I laid in bed for about a week, thinking if I can ever get back on the basketball court again? The pain was unbearable. I took painkillers almost every day, and the side effects of these drugs caused me great difficulties in my daily life. I also went to consult several physiotherapists and acupuncturists. None of them provided the answer I was looking for i.e. “Can I get back on the basketball court again?” Finally, one of my close friends who was studying chiropractic at that time, told me about chiropractic. I had no idea what it was at that time. With some doubt in my mind, I went to see a chiropractor. The chiropractor explained to me what chiropractic is all about. He then adjusted my spine without giving me any drugs or painkillers. A week later, my lower back started to improve, and several weeks later I was able to play basketball again. Not only did I find the answer I was looking for but I also found the answer to my life: “I want to be a chiropractor.”
Being a chiropractor allows me to do what my chiropractor did to me when I was 20 years old i.e. helping people to get well and get back to an active lifestyle again. Chiropractic is all about treating your spine well and ensuring your nervous systems are “back online”. Without a proper functioning nervous system, our body will not be able to function well, and optimal health will not be achieved.
I have been in practice for almost 10 years, including 8 years in Singapore. The more I practice, I realise how different each individual is. Each individual is unique and this is the same philosophy when it comes to chiropractic treatments. Chiropractic spinal manipulation/adjustments will ensure our spine is in a well-aligned state. Our other joints such as shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles can all be potentially affected due to our inactive lifestyles and these joints can also be treated with appropriate chiropractic treatments. With Chiropractic adjustments as the starting basis, together with additional treatments such as Spinal Decompressional therapy, Shockwave treatments, Electrode therapy and Spinal Rehabilitations, we will provide a full spectrum of care to treat various musculoskeletal problems in Singapore.
This is the main theme of Equilibrio Chiropractic in Singapore, “Balance”, where every single part of our body system is in harmony, and in sync with each other like a well conducted orchestra. This is what I want every single person who walks out Equilibrio Chiropractic to feel every time and this is what I want Chiropractic care to be about in Equilibrio Chiropractic.
