If Chiropractors are Not Recognized in Singapore, How do I find the Right One?
Even if a Chiropractor were recognized in Singapore, it would not matter. At best if there were a Chiropractic board, you would be able to check to see if the Chiropractor has any complaints or if they are licensed. If the intention is to find a good Chiropractor, looking upon a government-appointed website does not help. Instead of checking for the amount of experience and looking for testimonials is the best thing. We have an article on how to find a good Chiropractor if you want to read on this topic.
What Can a Chiropractor Do for Me?
It depends on what kind of practice they have. Some are really into nutrition; some teach meditation like me. Getting people out of pain from the head to the lower back and sacrum is the baseline of what most chiropractors work on. There is a myriad of different types of Chiropractors that focus on specific things like pregnancy, pediatrics, low back, and disc problems. In my opinion, a good Chiropractor has the experience to see a wide variety of people with many conditions. A component of Chiropractic is the art aspect, which makes the skill level from Chiropractor to Chiropractor, day and night.
How do I find a good Chiropractor in Singapore?
That's a very personal question, and if you ask me, I will go to me because I have a lot of experience and I used to teach people how to adjust the spine. However, I may not be the right Chiropractor for everyone. Since we deal with touch, finding the right Chiropractor can be very personal, and humans are very complicated. For example, people rarely choose their friends using a rational mind. Some people only want Christian friends even if a person who is Muslim may be a fabulous person who feeds 20,000 women and children every day. l am not saying that is wrong. I am just making a point that we are a complicated race, and people make choices based on Illogical thinking.
Choosing a Chiropractor is the same thing. I believe I am the first Chiropractor anyone should see but at the same time, I know people make choices based on logical and illogical preferences from a referral from a friend to gender and race. My general advice in Singapore is you should see a Chiropractor willing to treat you with or without X-Rays. If they are confident in their ability, then imaging should not be a primary factor in caring for you. When needed, I prefer to shoot MRI's over X-Rays because they offer more information. MRI shows the health of the disc, muscles, ligaments, bones and even tumors while X-Rays only show the bone. However, in a year, I only ask people to shoot and MRI less than a handful of times.
What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care focuses explicitly on the first two bones In the neck C1 (Atlas) and C2 (Axis). It is a known fact that these first two bones are the most important in the spine. This is universally understood within the Chiropractic community and the Medical community. Between all the vertebra there isn't any other area that has more nerve activity than the Upper Cervical region. The Atlas (C1) is the gateway between the brain and the body. All of the information from your brain to your body passes through this bone, and all of the data from the body to the brain go through the Atlas. The brain is continually getting feedback from the body to regulate standard daily functions such as digestion, immune system, hormonal system, and even the external environment to name a few.
How Much Does Experience Count When Choosing a Chiropractor in Singapore?
There are no Chiropractic schools in Singapore, and the closest place is Australia. America is where Chiropractic was invented and is the place in the world that has the best seminars outside of school to take. Most of the Chiropractors that I know who are good learned most of their skills from the best Chiropractors in America. These Chiropractors that run popular seminars, have had a highly successful practice, so the likelihood that they would teach in a Chiropractic school is low. Teaching in schools would result in lower pay, and if they traveled to various Chiropractic schools, they would be able to touch more students. The best Chiropractors learn from retired Chiropractors that want to give back to the Chiropractic profession. It's not a fair metric but it's reasonable to assume that an American Chiropractor as a higher likelihood to be an excellent Chiropractor.
Two of the best schools in technique, seminar density and variety would be Life Chiropractic College West and Life University. However, it's very possible that some Chiropractic students travel to various places in America to learn from the best seminars and in rare situations even an Australian Chiropractor traveling to America to learn. Most of the big practices in Singapore tend to hire fresh graduates, so it is essential to check to see how many years the Chiropractor has been practicing. Learning from the best Chiropractors saves a Chiropractor 5 to 10 years of experience plus it gives a Chiropractor a solid foundation to improve every year they practice. A Chiropractor with a bad foundation and 10 years of practice would not be as good as a Chiropractor with 5 years experience with the best mentors.
What's The Difference Between A Chiropractor and a Physiotherapist?
Most people see Chiropractor’s and Physiotherapist for similar conditions, but for the layman, the difference can be confusing. Chiropractor’s master the ability to adjust the spine or some call it spinal manipulation. Physio's can adjust the spine, but it's not a core part of their programs, a Chiropractor has hundreds of hours in school compared to a physio that has only tens of hours. In short Chiropractor’s are usually more adept at treating chronic conditions better while physio’s shine in treating acute injuries and rehabilitation. In my opinion, Chiropractor and Physio do not compete, and both professions can offer great value. Here’s a list of situations where one profession will have an advantage over the other:
Low back Pain
Repetitive Stress Injury from sports
Rehabilitation following fracture
Muscle Tightness at the arms and legs
Low Back Tightness
