Bryan’s Little Story

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.

Sasha’s Little Story

While I was younger, I had always grown up watching my parents work harder than anyone else to be able to provide the best for me and my sisters. Because my parents always worked so hard, their health started to change; they were always tired, physically and emotionally. This made me realized two things; Firstly, that my parents loved me and wanted to provide a better lifestyle and opportunity for me. Secondly, health is your asset, it is important that your body must be healthy so you will be able to continue providing for yourself as well as people that you love. Since then, I knew I wanted to be able to provide others what my parents have provided me by working in the health sector. I want to be able to help people improve their lifestyle, their bodies functionality and help them reach their health goals so that you can live a happier life. I strongly believe that in order to be able to look after others, one must be able to look after themselves first.

During the end of my High School studies, I struggled to decide upon a career in the health sector that would suit me until I heard about “Chiropractic”. At first, I did not know what this involved but as I did research, I spoke and observed local Chiropractic practitioners, I came to know that this is what I was looking for.

Moving on a few years after I have graduated, despite many sleepless nights from studying whilst learning and improving my own skills, I fell in love with this career and have never regretted it since. Being able to see patients improve through the care I have provided and the many loving compliments how chiropractic care has helped them in their daily lives is the best reward that I could receive. I fall deeper in love with what I do every day. My parents have looked after me, now it is my turn to be able to look after others through Chiropractic care.

I look forward to working with you and building a healthier you.

Jarol’s Little Story

My parents are from mainland China and they emigrated to Puerto Rico to start their new life with my sister and I back in the 90s. Growing up Puerto Rico is something that I take with me at all times in the way I approach life, in optimism and passion in life and family. After graduating from University of South Florida I was going to continue my studies into pharmacy school. However I was involved in a car accident in which I suffered a whiplash injury causing me severe neck and wrist pain with numbness and tingling to my arm and hands. I sought medical opinions and I followed their treatment plan, which was to do rehab and be on pain medication until the symptoms subsided. Well the wrist and neck pain never went away. One day at work I mentioned my accident and symptoms to a customer who comes every Saturday for lunch after he’s morning surfing session. I mentioned it to him because I knew he was a Chiropractor, but I didn’t know what he actually does. I received my first chiropractic adjustment right there and then. It was like a veil was lifted and I decided to know more about what chiropractic health care is all about. So I visited his clinic to learn more from my chiropractor and ever since then I’ve been getting regular chiropractic adjustments and decided to become a chiropractor myself. I am excited in providing my chiropractic skills and knowledge to help the people in Singapore achieve their optimal health potential.

Ferraine’s Little Story

I embarked on my career in 2013 as a Chiropractic Clinic Ambassador. I had my fair share of doubts initially as I had been in the sales industry all along. I am a very sociable person who craves interactions and therefore was not certain if healthcare was appropriate for me. Despite these uncertainties, I forged ahead and took up the role as a personal challenge to myself.

Fast forward till today, I have no qualms that I had indeed made the right decision. Starting with absolutely no knowledge about how chiropractic worked, it has been an amazing journey for me to realise the intricacies of the spine and its relationship with our organs and various parts of our bodies. The doctors are really patient when explaining these issues to me, such as how different parts of our bodies will be affected by subluxations at different parts of the spine etc.

In the blink of an eye, eight years have flown by since I stepped into the chiropractic industry. I would not hesitate to say that I love my job, I love being able to share my extensive knowledge with people and seeing them heal steadily still remains my greatest source of joy and satisfaction.

Apple’s Little Story

My name is Apple and I am a Chiropractic Clinic Ambassador. I chose this name for myself and I adore it as it is not only easy to pronounce, it also serves as a great way for others to remember me due to its simplicity.

As the people around me can testify, I possess an extremely easy-going personality and I am never without my positive attitude. Thus, I have great patience and empathy. My greatest passion in life is helping people, which is why the role that I play in this clinic cannot be more suitable for me. I feel great compassion towards the people who approach us for our special care and I express this compassion through the exceptional quality in my work. As such, not only am I able to help people, I am able to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge about health. I have the capability of applying this knowledge to patients, family, friends and myself.

Being in this industry for the past eight years, not a day goes by when I do not feel blessed to be in my chosen career. During these years, the experience I have gained in chiropractic and general health is invaluable. My desire is to stay in this company and profession and advance together with my colleagues. It is of paramount importance for me to use my abilities to work alongside my colleagues in order to assist our doctors in providing quality care to as many people as possible.
