Chiropractic focuses on treating the root cause of the problem as opposed to short term pain relief. We believe in assessing the body as a whole and tailoring treatments to individual goals whilst monitoring outcomes.

We see a fair number of adolescent scoliosis cases in our practice. Some important things to determine in these cases are whether there are any aggravating signs for further changes. Taking into consideration all these factors we are then able to determine the treatment required and the most effective and realistic approach to care.
Vertigo & Giddiness
Madam Wong recently started experiencing bouts of giddiness/dizziness. This can be caused by a number of reasons, after a thorough examination and the adoption of various orthopaedic tests we diagnosed her with BPPV. This is when the crystals in the ear break away from their origin in the inner ear.

Neck Rehabilitation for Slipped Disc
Mr Syed was diagnosed with a cervical Slipped Disc. His symptoms included weakness accompanied with numbness and tingling into the right hand. After a series of adjustments and decompression therapy, we're glad to say he's pain free. However, given the existing damage sustained in his neck we're now focusing on rehabilitation to create greater balance in his neck muscles and to decrease as much joint and disc stress as possible as a means of prevention.
