Everything you need to know about non-surgical spinal decompression therapy
How does it work?
Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, non-invasive and pain free treatment modality used in Singapore that is effective in the treating of herniated and degenerating discs. These conditions can cause significant neck and lower back pain which can prevent a person from playing sport, cause physical and mental stress, and hinder mobility through everyday tasks.
During the treatment, the machine creates a unique and highly specific force that gently stretches the spine. This takes pressure away from the spine and decompresses the vertebra. When the spine is being stretched, nutrients, oxygen, and water is promoted and circulated to the damaged or injured disc, thus allowing the spine to heal naturally.
What can I expect during treatment?
Patients undergoing the non-surgical spinal decompression therapy will generally experience stretching along the lumbar or neck area and most of them would find it quite comfortable and relaxing. Few patients may experience slight soreness after the treatment which is similar to how one might feel after an exercise regimen. Each session generally lasts 20-30 minutes. The number of treatments required for maximum results varies from person to person.

My back has persistently been feeling sore in these 1-2 years. However, after Dr Bryan’s treatment, my back feels more relaxed and not so tense anymore. I also feel more comfortable when sitting and standing as compared to before. Therefore I encourage people with back problems to experience treatment here.
My mum has scoliosis and was in a lot of pain, even experiencing burning sensation in her flesh. Dr Bryan diagnosed her with last stage degeneration and curated a therapy programme and strengthening exercise for her spine. Although my mum doesn’t speak English, Dr Bryan and his staff is always patient with her and make her comfortable on every visit. My mum’s condition improved tremendously after only a few visits. Seeing such improvements, she’s motivated to continue her treatment. Thanks Dr Bryan and team!

I came in with numbness which I have for about 20 years on both my hands. I went to see a GP and took some nerve pills but it didn’t work for me. I met Dr Bryan Chen during my company’s talk (NPARKS). Dr Bryan sends me for xrays and he explained my condition. I got my first adjustment and I felt better usually both my hands feel cold but after the adjustment, I feel warmth in my hands and blood flowing down. After a few adjustment, my numbness is lesser and tolerable. I am still undergoing my Chiropractic care and am confident that Dr Bryan can help me eliminate my discomfort!

I have been under Dr Bryan Chen for the past 2 months my lower back problems is so much improved and felt better now. Past few weeks ago, I had a very bad headache after my flu, under his medical hand my headache had gone after the next day. Thanks so much to Dr Bryan.
The adjustment and treatment helps in correcting the slight misalignment of my hip. The decompression therapy helps to relax my spine and lower back muscles. This allows me to continue my physical activities without any hindrances.
I have always enjoyed the visits to Dr Bryan, because Dr Bryan has been very pivotal in helping me to address the misalignment of my spine. Dr Bryan is always concern about my progress such as lower back pain and also migraine. These two conditions have since subsided ever since I started going for treatment the progress is remarkably fast and I am glad that I do not have any migraine as often as before. The staffs at the clinic never fail to make you happy or put a smile on your face. They are too concern about my progress. Their service is amazing. To end, I will encourage others who have back problem to come to this clinic for their treatment and enjoy the same wonderful experience that I went through. You’ll enjoy it!
I had very serious migraines and headaches I couldn’t work and would get irritable because of the migraine after session with Dr Bryan, my migraine were lessen and less painful. What a huge improvement in my life! Many thanks to the awesome team here!

I came here 3 months ago. I was introduce by my friend, Shu Yee as she knows that I always having headache and she noticed that my right side shoulder’s bone is misalignment. After doing the treatment, my headache problem has been reduced.
Dr. Bryan’s customized approach with suggested exercises and stretches to build up my core muscles has helped me strengthened my back quicker than I expected.
1 year ago. Dr. Bryan came into AXA Insurance for a roadshow campaign. That’s how I met Dr. Bryan who helps to diagnose my neck pain issue. After every adjustment, I could always feel much more relaxed and feeling much more rejuvenated. Neck is not as stiff as before. Overall, feels very comfortable seeking treatment at equilibrio
I’ve been patient of Dr. Bryan since July 2015 and my quality of life because of the spine adjustment of Dr. Bryan been back into good condition. I highly recommend equilibrio Health for the good service and friendly stuff and most especially the treatment from Dr. Bryan.
I've injured my back from basketball over 10 years ago and I often suffer from muscle spasms and even had to be admitted to the hospital twice. This was where I decided to seek help and I chanced upon Dr Bryan's advertisement. During the initial consultation, he was attentive and is very knowledgable. In just a few short months of chiropractic adjustments and simple exercises, the pain never came back even when carrying heavy stuffs. It's been a few years since I first started and I'm happy to say that there wasn't any more relapse of muscle spasm. Thank you Dr Bryan.
I was introduced by my friend to Dr. Bryan Chen at Feb 2017. I was having back pain for a very long period of time. Dr. Bryan recommended me for Adjustment and Decompression Therapy due to my condition. Few sessions later I felt the pain got lessen, and much relieve on my lower back. Improvement was alit for me. In a nutshell, everything is good and I will continue to do my maintenance with Dr. Bryan.
