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.
How Does Spinal Decompression Therapy Work?
Using the most advanced US technology, Spinal Decompression Therapy slowly and gently lengthens and pump the vertebral disc of the spine through repetitive movements. This allows the disc bulges and nutrients to be drawn back into the center of the disc and help to relieve the compression at the nerve root. It also speeds up the body’s natural healing process. Each treatment is individually customized to target troubled spots and advanced sensor technology is used to continuously measure and monitor the treatment force and patient-resistance of every treatment.
Spinal decompression has been proven to show results for the following conditions:
• Chronic back and neck pain
• Bulging or herniated discs
• Arm and leg pain / numbness
• Spinal stenosis / arthritis
• Degenerative discs
• Worn spinal joints (Posterior facet syndrome)
• Injured or diseased spinal nerve roots (Radiculopathy)
• Pinched nerves
• Failed back surgery rehabilitation
Spinal Decompression Therapy FAQ
What is the duration of one session?
The duration of the session may vary by patient and the degree of correction needed. Typically the length of the session ranges between 20 – 30 minutes.
How many sessions will I need to see improvement?
The time taken for results to show will depend upon several factors, including the length of time you have experienced your problem, your general health, your exercise habits, your daily lifestyle, the nature of your work and your level of commitment to treatment. Our goal is to help you achieve optimal health and providing you information and tips to manage your condition. By following our recommendations, most patients benefit and sense progress within a short period of time.
Will I feel any discomfort during the session?
You may feel a slight pressure at your spine, but it is nothing that will cause pain. Many of our patients find the treatment very relaxing and report a decrease in pain after each session. Some patients find the treatment so relaxing that they fall asleep and wake up feeling like they’ve had a wonderful stretch of their back and neck.
Our team is trained to carefully calibrate the machine to ensure you are getting the right treatment for your condition without leaving you feeling sore. Check-ins are done throughout the treatment to ensure you are comfortable.
How can Spinal Decompression Therapy work with chiropractic care?
A spinal injury or condition usually requires chiropractic care to realign subluxations (vertebrae that are not in correct alignment). However, disc problems may still be present and need treatment even after the vertebrae are realigned. This is why certain patients also need complementary therapies like decompression to address all facets of their back pain, neck pain, spinal injury, sciatica, headaches, etc.
Am I a good candidate?
We’d love to see you and find out! The only way to determine if you are a good candidate for Spinal Decompression Therapy is to be examined by our team. They will perform a thorough evaluation to determine the root cause of your pain and assess if you may be able to find pain relief through Spinal Decompression Therapy. If they believe that you are a good candidate, they will advise you on the recommended care to get you started on the path to pain relief as soon as possible.
Are there any side effects to the treatment?
Most patients do not experience any major side effects.
Spinal Decompression Therapy stretches muscles in a lengthening direction which the body is generally not used to. Because of this, patients may experience a dull, achy soreness for the first week or two as the body becomes accustomed to being stretched and decompressed. They often describe as “it feels like I just worked out for the first time in a long time.” Very rarely do patients have an increase in the pain that they came in with.
Patients with acute, severe disc herniations may experience some pain during the first week or two until the herniation retracts back in taking pressure off the nerves. Acute disc herniation patients tend to experience more “up and down” types of relief from their pain for the first two weeks as an acute disc herniation can be slightly unpredictable. Regardless of the mild soreness experienced in the first week or two, most patients experience 50% relief or more of their pain around the end of the second week.
Overall Spinal Decompression Therapy is considered safe and comfortable.
How does Spinal Decompression Therapy compare to spinal surgery?
Spinal surgery is invasive and as with all surgeries, carries with it a risk of infection or side effects from the anesthesia or medications.
In contrast, Spinal Decompression Therapy is non-invasive and non-medicinal. It is a natural approach to decompressing your spine and returning you to a healthy state. Therefore, choosing a non-invasive approach with fewer side effects is the one we recommend.
