He is also a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (awarded in 1994 by the NorthWestern College of Chiropractic of Minnesota) and a holder of an International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma.

He has treated and advised many of Singapore's top national athletes in sports such as swimming, bowling, cycling, track and field and soccer.

As an adjunct to precision chiropractic adjustments for the treatment of your health problems, we also utilize various other therapy modalities to enhance the healing process. Our Leander flexion/distraction tables, the first and only in Singapore, provide passive mobilization of the spine, assisting in the treatment of many types of back conditions. We use various electro-therapies such as interferential, Russian, and microcurrent that help reduce muscle spasms, increase circulation and decrease pain. G5 mechanical massage, cervical and lumbar traction, hot and cold packs are among other therapies available in our offices. We also use specialized soft tissue massage techniques unique to the chiropractic profession.

In addition, we provide our patients with rehabilitation exercises, advice on posture and activities of daily living, nutritional and stress management. Overall we try to assist our patients in the total management of their chiropractic problems.

Some of the conditions that can be managed with appropriate chiropractic care include : lower back pain (incl.spondylosis or sciatica), neck pain / whiplash, slipped disc / disc disorders, painful joints, headaches, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet, poor posture, spinal curvature / scoliosis, stiffness, stress, shoulder pain, (tennis & golf) elbow, wrist pain / carpal tunnel, hip disorders, knee pain and foot & ankle pain problems.

Here you can find some interesting information about arthritis and sports injuries and how chiropractic can help you with it.

We cater to people of all ages and backgrounds from children to grandmothers, office workers to elite athletes.

Chiropractic adjustments
What separates the chiropractic profession from all other health care providers is the use of adjustments to the spinal vertebrae in the restoration and maintenance of health. This specialized treatment, which is also called spinal manipulation, is a specific movement applied to the spinal joint to restore proper motion and function and to eliminate nerve irritation.

Adjustments are a skill that requires special training and is an integral part of a chiropractor's education. Special physical tests as well as diagnostic x-ray and MRI, are used to determine where and what type of adjustment is needed to correct the specific health condition. Most adjustive technique is done with the hands though there are also methods of adjustment that involve instruments or sophisticated tables such as a Leander Table

The most common method of adjustment and probably the most widely used is called Diversifed technique. With this method the practitioner physically moves the joint with a small fast impulse that causes an articular release or what the patients often calls "cracking". The sound that one feels and hears is not the bones cracking but a release of gas pressure within the joint when it resets itself during the adjustment. Besides the increased mobility in the joint, the adjustment helps increase the circulation and relieve pressure upon the nerve endings that line the surface of the joint and course through the space between the joints. This is particularly useful when one has acute back or neck pain that involves muscle spasm as often one can feel immediate increase in movement and a significant decrease in pain directly after an adjustment.

The spinal nerves exit between the vertebrae close to the joints and travel to other parts of the body virtually connecting the brain to every thing else. With in mind, spinal adjustments can have a powerful affect upon many conditions besides just neck and back pain. For example with many neck conditions, the spinal nerve is often affected causing an associated pain, numbing or weakness in the shoulder, arm or hand. By adjusting the associated neck vertebrae, these problems in the extremity can be alleviated. This is also true with conditions such as headaches where in many cases the cause of the headache is due to an irritation to the nerve from the upper neck.

Adjustments have also been known to help problems such as asthma, gastritis, constipation and menstrual cramps in certain cases. This again is due the fact that the spinal nerves connect the brain to the organs such as the lungs, stomach and uterus. A problem in the spine such as a subluxation, can cause irritation to the spinal nerve and adversely affect the organ systems. However it is important to always rule out other possibilities of organ pain or dysfunction with your doctor.

Chiropractic adjustments are a safe and effective treatment for numerous health problems though one should always make sure that only a graduate of an accredited chiropractic institution is allowed to adjust or manipulate the spine. Particularly in the Asian countries, many unqualified individuals are doing crude forms of spinal manipulation in the guise of massage. This is a potentially dangerous situation as person should always undertake a history and examination before having spinal adjustments or manipulation as certain spinal conditions are adversely affected by vigorous manipulations.
