I decided to try chiropractic as it is the most natural, painless and sustainable option. I chose Dr Bill as my chiropractor after reading many great reviews about him. True to the reviews, Dr Bill is very knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging, and has a very inspiring mindset on providing the best care for us to attain optimal health. In addition, Dr Bill gives very practical tips on spinal self-care at home. The staffs at Chiropractic First Hougang Mall are wonderful too!
After 3 months of chiropractic care, my tension headaches and lower backaches are gone, I feel more balanced when I walk, my mind is more alert, and I sleep like a baby now! I also realised that it helps with my sinus too. With all these positive effects, I am continuing my treatment with Dr Bill for another 6 months and am looking forward to some Before & After pictures. Till then, fantastic experience and thumbs up for Dr Bill !!!
There were occasions where Dr Lina were unable to attend to me due to emergency or on medical leave. I was recommended to be attended by a different doctor. However the adjustments felt ineffective due to unfamiliarity between the therapist and my body structure. It was a waste of three sessions. The CFG management claims that all their therapists possess the same skill set and that it is the same to have another therapist attend to you, however this has been proven wrong by my experiences with other therapists. If so, why were we assigned to a specific therapist from the beginning? It seems to me the management is pushing for patients to use their sessions despite ineffective treatment outcomes, leading me to believe that the management is not patient-centric, rather business-centric. Business first, chiropractic last.
CFG has good doctors but unfortunately poor management leads to my scoring of 2 stars.
After few treatment, I can feel my spine. I can sleep well most of the nights, migraine reduced, improved my relationship activities with my spouse.
Recommended Chiropractic adjustment service to most of the people. Spine is just like car-tyre, need to maintenance. Imagine the spine need to support in our daily activities for so many years, sometimes indirectly go side way yet we never notice. Chiropractic will be helping to enhance based on personal situation. It does help!
Firstly the Leeds practice has a very modern feel, its bright, welcoming and for someone like me who hates clinical environments, Chiropractic First is great.
You are welcomed from the off by two superb client facilitators who manage the practise and reception facilities. They are always bright and cheerful and it is clear they enjoy the work they do which helps you feel right at home.
Dr Michael is extremely passionate and he obviously loves working within the field of Chiropractic Therapy. He strongly believes in the benefits of the therapy he provides which enables him to give exceptional levels of care with extreme attention to detail. Although he has IT systems to record client progress he makes the extra effort to know and understand the lifestyles and daily challenges of all of his patients.
So, if you are worried or sceptical about giving Chiropractic Therapy a go then Chiropractic First would be my recommendation!!!
The MRI Scan from the government clinic showed that i have a slipped disc and recommended me to go for surgery....
I didnt want to go for surgery as it would mean that i will be out for action(work) for months...
So i opted to get chiropractic treatment for my slipped disc at the clinic in north point.
DR Zac handled my case and he help me get back into shape...he was patient and sincere...i always felt that im in good hands....
I have no regrets....the treatment is worth every penny...I can now enjoy a better quality of life...
Special Thanks To Dr Zac..
Through the assessment than I realize my neck c4 to c7 was in bad shape and my back was not align, after the 1st year adjustment my back was about 80% align and condition of my neck had improve. Overall my life style had improved, regularly I still visit Dr Evan for my adjustment to ease the tension.
my condition is getting better..😊
Keep up the great job 🙂
Excellent Dr and helpful staffs.
My condition is getting better.
I have chronic neck and shoulder pain also often headache. Chiropratic first is the most professional and best way I have ever found to improve my health condition significantly. Strongly recommend 3 doctors I have been met for last 4 years, Dr. Shane Kang, Bryan and Matt Kan.
It was through my first set of X-Rays that made me visualize and witness how bad my cervical spine looks. I have a forward neck which was probably caused by hours of being on my phone and computer. Due to the nerve interference in my neck, I experienced migraine attacks for 3-4 times a week for a period of 2-3 years. I had also suffered from chronic tailbone pain and lower-back pain.
Chiropractic care was my last option and I am glad to have found it, because it works! I am now on diligent maintenance care which keeps my body functioning at its best, all the time.
Kudos to the Hougang Mall Team. Thank you so much!
Currently i am with Dr Bill in Hougang Mall. Thank you for maintaining my spine health
A lot of improvement in posture too!
Thank you Dr Julia! @Northpoint Chiropractic First Group
My experience was great!:)
Did my 1st adjustment at Raffles Place by Dr Kerry who spend close to an hour discussing the treatment plan with me.
Nevertheless would routinely follow up with the treatment plan.
What is spinal disc?
The spinal disc is a soft cushion that sits between each vertebrae of the spine. In a young individual, the disc is soft and elastic, but as we age, our spinal disc loses their flexibility, elasticity, and shock absorbing characteristics.
How does it “slip”?
Despite the common name – “slipped disc”. It doesn’t really mean that the disc has “slipped” out, rather, the gel-like material in the centre of the disc bulges into the spinal canal. A slipped disc is also known as pro-lapsed intervertebral disc (PID), herniated or ruptured disc.
Non-invasive treatment for the conservative
Treatments for herniated disc can range from physical therapy, to anti-inflammatory medication, to cortisone shots to surgery. Because back surgery is extremely invasive, and it is not always totally successful in correcting the problem, it would be wise to seek out the services of a doctor of Chiropractic First. Before resorting to a surgical approach, it just makes good sense to try a more conservative procedure. A doctor of chiropractic is trained to locate, reduce and correct spinal subluxations.
The introduction of a new, automated spinal decompression table provides yet another option for the conservative public who are suffering from herniated discs. It identifies the troubled spots and decompresses the lumbar or cervical discs through the diversion of pressure and positioning of the spine. This relieves pressure on the compressed nerve root. The reduction of pressure will increase the distribution of fluids and nutrients across the end plates back into the disc, to enhance the body’s natural healing abilities.
Benefits of the treatment
It is a drug free non-surgical approach for patients suffering from intervertebral disc disorders. The automated decompression table is designed to precisely target and decompress injured spinal segments with a significantly lower distractive force that reduces negative side effects and increases patient comfort. With its safe and pain-free sessions, it is not uncommon for some patients to fall asleep whilst on treatment. The cost involved in the treatment is also much lower as compared to the expensive and risky spinal surgeries.
The patient is comfortably positioned on the table, where the patented pelvic restraints are adjusted to comfortably secure the patient’s pelvis. The upper torso is captured by a comfortable securing system incorporated into the fixed section of the table. The patented pelvic tilt section will be electronically tilted, so that specific spinal segments can be targeted. Precise and pain-free computer-controlled tension will be applied to distract the specific disc segment.
The cervical Unit is first electronically tilted to the angle required to target specific segments of the cervical spine. The patient is placed on the table with their head positioned in the cervical cradle unit. The cervical restraints are designed to comfortably capture the base the patient’s skull for controlled distraction. A typical daily session on the automated decompression table lasts for approximately 30 minutes. The average recommended course of procedure is 20 sessions and ideally, the sessions are performed 3 to 5 times a week. Following that, patients will be given mobilization and strengthening exercises to avoid further injuries
