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

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.

1. Are Chiropractors real “doctors”?
Doctors of Chiropractic are similar to non-medical doctors in other associated health-care professions such as Clinical Psychologists, Podiatry, Radiographers, Physiotherapists, Dentistry and others. To be awarded the academic degree of “Doctor of Chiropractic”, Chiropractors must attend a minimum of 4,485 hours of classroom hours while Medical Doctors (MD) attend a minimum of 4,248 hours for their medical degrees.
However, Chiropractors are allowed to practice spinal adjustment in place of prescribing medication while medical doctors are allowed to prescribe medication in accordance to their specialisation.
2. What causes the sound of an adjustment?
The loud pop associated with chiropractic adjustment unnerves most people. This pop – as startling as it seems – is due to the opening up of the joint. The popping sound is created when the joints are opened up and the fluid between the joints creates a release of gas.
Not all chiropractic adjustments guarantee an audible popping sound due to the variety in chiropractic adjustment techniques administered by each doctor.
3. Can I “crack” my neck and back without a chiropractor?
The “pop” sound associated to the chiropractic adjustments is similar to what you hear during the “cracking” of the joints. Individuals who feel a persisting desire to crack his or her neck is due to the tension they are experiencing from a jammed vertebra. If “cracking” is done over a prolonged period of time, it can lead to perpetual instability.
The dangers in consistent cracking without expert advice includes blood clotting, developing osteoarthritis, wear and tear of vertebrae cartilage, and increase risk in stroke. Neck adjustments by a chiropractor is recommended as they are clear on the extent to which the joint should be moved to balance the spinal column.
4. Can subluxations be detected without a Chiropractor?
Subluxations are often difficult to detect similar to a dental cavity. That’s why periodic spinal check-ups are so important. Early detection will allow the chiropractor to perform adjustments accordingly to prevent any deterioration of condition.
5. When should anyone start with Chiropractic care?
It is never too early to start with chiropractic. Newborns have received spinal adjustments especially after difficult or traumatic births.
Uncorrected birth trauma leads to pressure on the spine or neck which will impact spinal growth and development. This ignorance will lead the newborn away from optimal health resulting in health issues.
6. How many adjustments do I require?
There is no hard and fast rule for the required number of chiropractic adjustments one needs as chiropractic functions based on your current health conditions and goals. Discuss with your chiropractor about attaining optimal health; especially short-term and long-term goals to determine on the ideal treatment plan tailored for your needs.
7. What will happen if I stop going for adjustments?
Adopting chiropractic as the way of life includes regular checks and visits to ensure functional independence and tolerance for daily activities. Putting a halt in chiropractic adjustments will lead to a build-up of stress on the spine and nervous system.
Spine and nerve stress will continue to build up as before, but it won’t be reduced or eliminated. If the stress is not relived, your body and overall health will suffer. Therefore, regular maintenance is highly recommended to help you maintain your spinal health at its optimal all the time.
8. Is Chiropractic similar to receiving a massage?
Chiropractors specialize in adjustments of the spinal column, nervous system, meninges and body structure whilst massage therapists work on muscle tension, circulation and body fluid drainage. Chiropractic and massage target different areas of the body with separate techniques and differing results.
9. Can I go for Chiropractic adjustments even if I had back surgery?
Chiropractic adjustments are ideal in maintaining the health of your spine once you have recovered from a back surgery. The possibility of experiencing “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome” increases if there is no utilisation of chiropractic adjustments; leading to the prospect of additional surgery.
10. Can I see the Chiropractor if I have broken bones?
A broken bone forms a callus or bone scar when it heals, this callus or bone scare is far stronger than any part of the bones. Thus, any chiropractic adjustments done after full recovery will not lead to further stress. Patients who have had broken bones will require chiropractic check-ups because of possible presence of spinal subluxations.
