A self-proclaimed “not your usual chiropractor”, Jesse believes in using movement as medicine and champions an active lifestyle for a functional and fulfilling life. Jesse, who originally chose to enroll in a Veterinarian School, went on a whirlwind journey through the law department of Murdoch University before settling into its Chiropractic Science course for five years.
Prior to his return to Singapore, Jesse worked closely with high level Australian athletes. This included the Australian Football League as well as various state and national level sporting clubs. He was the Head Sport Trainer for the Forrestfield Football Club, board member of the Sports Chiropractic Australia in 2017, and was a member of Sports Medicine Australia.
The unique difference between us and other chiropractic clinics is that we work on a fixed programme basis. Every case we take on is a unique project that we work with over 12 weeks or 6 months. Some pain patients think that it's no difference from a chiropractic package. However, that is not true as [...]
There's a lot of research on therapeutic alliance because the relationship that you have with your healthcare provider can determine the success of your treatment. Research has shown that the relationship you have with your chiropractor can predict the success of your recovery. With this in mind, it's not surprising that a poor working relationship [...]
Because we don't follow a cookie cutter approach at Square One Active Recovery, what we do with each client is often unique and outside of the client's expectation. We always emphasised that if you want really good results, you must engage in radical change. This is where the unexpectedness lies. Having a working mental approach [...]
Most pain sufferers want concrete answers in their recovery. Is this going to make my pain go away 100%? Unfortunately, as a chiropractor, I don't have the definite answer to that. We can make predictions about what is most likely to happen but we can't say for sure what exactly will happen. This uncertainty is [...]
Sometime during COVID, I decided to attend the solution-focused coaching training with Debbie Hogan. My main interest was to learn more about effective change, and how we can integrate this into how we work with our clients. Very often we know what is required for us to be healthier. The problem is really is in [...]
One of the best parts of being an empowerment-based chiropractor is that you are able to see chronic pain sufferers recovery on their own. It's ridiculously powerful because you get to see the shift from "I am so weak" or "I shouldn't have waited for decades before seeking help" to "I can carry groceries by [...]
The biggest mistake any chronic pain sufferer can make is to try to make their pain go away. Very often, patients will see a chiropractor, osteopath, or TCM practitioner and expect their pain to go away. When their pain does go away upon treatment, they think the treatment works. This is when the problem starts. [...]
As a chiropractor, we often get ask if yoga is good for spinal pain. I think because yogi often have great range of motion and spinal flexibility, that is the preconceived idea that they have great spinal health. Unfortunately, this is largely not true. Yoga as a recovery intervention I think it's entirely possible for [...]
With chiropractic clinics popping up in every neighbourhood in Singapore, it's clear that chiropractic treatment is getting traction in Singapore. In fact, its popularity has transcend beyond treating the usual low back and neck pain to working with newborn babies. You have been experiencing back pain for a while, been told you have a slipped [...]
Despite being over 10, 000km away from Poland, we are very privileged to have our own Wim Hof-accredited instructor right here in Singapore. For those who are unfamiliar, Wim Hof is most famous for its ice bath. The purpose is to help practitioners to reconnect to ourselves, to others, and to nature. Who is Wim [...]
As a chiropractor in Singapore, I work a lot with neck pain patients. The unfortunate truth is that neck aches and soreness are often poorly managed in Singapore and most patients don't get long term relief. You have probably tried various treatments. You may have even seen chiropractors who specialise with neck problems to no [...]
As a chiropractor, I focus a lot on education to drive long-term results. As such, we usually do a community project every month. This can be anything from an online webinar to a in-person workshop. We also host social nights and open houses so we can get to you outside of a clinical setting. If […]
