Neck and back pain are some of the serious problems that most Singaporeans experience and will probably face soon. These pains may decrease the patient's quality of life and cause stress. Preventing the blockages in the nervous system that causes pain and restricts the patient's movements can reduce neck and back pain in a few sessions. However, postponing the treatment might lead to injury, immobility, and permanent damage. Gentle chiropractic adjustments applied by chiropractors can relieve pain safely.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic, a manual and non-invasive therapy, is used to diagnose and treat spinal disorders that put pressure on nerves. Chiropractic medicine which is considered an alternative medicine field provides safe recovery of disorders in the spine. Through chiropractic treatment, the cause of the pain can be understood and it can be treated. At the end of the session, the patient is informed about what to do or not to do in the following days. The aim is not only to recover the deformation of the patient's spine and the improving the patient's musculoskeletal system but also to improve the patient's general health by changing the patient's lifestyle, diet, and mobility. The treatment can restore the motor system, prevent dysfunctions, improve the overall mobility of the body, increase patients' flexibility, and correct their posture. Thanks to chiropractic care, the need for surgery can be eliminated and drug use can be reduced. The therapy can be used to treat both nascent and chronic spinal problems.
What Can Chiropractic Help With?
Chiropractic treatment provides many benefits for patients. Although treatment can help to heal the entire body physically, mentally, and spiritually, it may be useful to look closely at the benefits of treatment. Chiropractic reduces the pain of injuries in overused tissue by gently adjusting the spine joints and it supplies blood to malfunctioning organs which are due to blockages. Chiropractors can provide relief to their patients' ligaments and tendons by treating their patients' joints, bones, and muscles. The patient's mobility can be increased by recovering the damage caused by sudden traumas and repetitive movements. With chiropractic, which is a painless treatment, not only back and neck pains are treated, but also shoulder, arm, leg, headache; intestinal and digestive problems; discopathy, slipped disc, sciatica, postural defects, degeneration of joints; ear infections, baby colic syndromes can be treated. It can also provide relief to problems such as sleep problems, allergies and asthma, dizziness, migraine, numbness, tingling, urinary incontinence, and shortness of breath. As a result, the treatment can heal the body naturally by relaxing the nerves that affect almost the entire body.

What to Expect During Your First Chiropractic Therapy Session?
During the first session, the doctor may counsel the patient and begin chiropractic adjustments.
When a patient arrives at the chiropractic clinic, the chiropractor will ask a few questions to understand the location of the pain, the intensity of the pain, and the patient's clinical history. The answers to these questions are important to determine the focus areas for treatment. After the question and answer part, the doctor might examine the spine in different body positions to diagnose the problem. In addition, the doctor examines the patient's muscle tone, the position of their vertebrae on the spine, and the length of their limbs. We do not require X-Rays to serve you and always offer treatment on your first visit. After checking the patient's health status, the doctor can determine the appropriate treatment method concerning the patient's age and body structure.
During chiropractic adjustments, rolling, twisting, and pushing can be applied to some parts of your body, especially to the spine. Since the vertebral misalignment on the spine is gently adjusted during these procedures, patients may hear popping sounds. These chiropractic adjustments are applied painlessly, gently, and quickly.
Chiropractic treatment is not a painful method. Although patients may be anxious about getting chiropractic services, adjustments may cause very little pain, but this pain disappears in a short time.
What is Treated During Your Session
Even though many people think that chiropractic therapy is only effective for back and neck pain, many physical disorders and illnesses can be healed during the session. During the chiropractic session, pain in muscles, head, joints, weak digestive system, and many other problems can be relieved.
How should I expect to feel after the Chiropractic session?
The feelings that are expected to be experienced after the chiropractic session may vary from person to person. While some patients feel alive and relieved, some patients may have a little pain. This pain starts within a few hours after treatment and ends within the first 24 hours. Applying a cold press to the area after chiropractic therapy quickly relieves pain.
How Many Chiropractic Sessions Will I Need?
The number of treatment sessions is determined by the size of the damage, the type of displacement of the vertebrae, the presence of dysfunction or structural defect. It is necessary to examine whether the disease is chronic or acute, and how long it has lasted. The number of sessions required to relieve nascent pain is less than the number of sessions required to relieve chronic pain.
Will I see improvements immediately after chiropractic adjustments?
Improvements after chiropractic adjustments vary depending on the severity of the pain, and whether it is chronic or not. Some patients, especially those getting treatment for neck pain, report feeling relief immediately after chiropractic adjustments, but recovery often takes time. The patient's recovery may also be affected by the patient's life habits and body mechanics. However, following the doctor's recommendations can accelerate the patient's improvement.
What are Chiropractor Prices Per Session?
Chiropractic therapy prices range from $80 to $120 per session. Some chiropractic clinics charge as little as $9 per session. However, chiropractors in these clinics probably have little experience in this area, and, likely, effective results at the end of therapy cannot be achieved. Chiropractors can determine the price of treatment based on their expertise, education, and experience. At the same time, some chiropractic offices suggest unnecessary sessions or offer a variety of packages that can reduce the cost per treatment. As Light Chiropractic, we determine the number of sessions that the patient will need during the consultation and suggest the most suitable package to the patient.
