Choose Chiropractic First
How do I choose a chiropractor?
Research, research, research!
We strongly recommend you to take the time required to find out how the chiropractor would manage similar complaints and to confirm that their practices are coherent with current research and health guidelines. When in doubt, always ask for academic references.
Why Should I Choose Square One?
Over 80% of our clients will achieve their recovery goals in 4-7 visits. Our unique treatment approach deliver outcomes superior to most chiropractors and physiotherapists in Singapore.
We do not entice you with ridiculous discounts or tie you down with expensive packages. We sell results.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a profession concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.
Chiropractors are trained in multiple modalities from neuromuscular re-education and therapeutic exercises to chiropractic adjustments, dry needling and IASTM.
True chiropractic care is about getting our patients pain and injury free without the use of pain killers or surgery.
What is an adjustment?
A chiropractic adjustment, also referred to as spinal manipulation, is the manoeuvre performed by chiropractors where a controlled, quick (high velocity) impulse is applied to a joint through a manual thrust. While patients often report positive changes in symptoms immediately after treatment, the relief is often short term.
As of six months ago, Square One no longer offers chiropractic adjustment as a core treatment. More details in the link above.
Is chiropractic treatment safe?
Yes! Chiropractic is recognised as one of the safest, non-invasive therapies for management of neuromusculoskeletal conditions. We help you management your pain without the use of pain killers or surgery.
While Chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no healthcare treatment is completely free from potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, is very small.
Do I need a referral from a Doctor?
No. While we do accept referrals from doctors and other healthcare providers, no referral letter is needed to book an appointment.
Do I have to be an athlete to have an appointment with you?
No. We work with your fitness capacity and pain tolerance to develop a treatment plan that works best for you. However, it will be in your best interest to do any home exercises as prescribed to optimise your care.
What treatment does Square One offer?
We provide patient education, and use shared decision making, therapeutic alliance, patient empowerment, reassurance, patient-centered communication, patient-centered practice to increase self-efficacy and activity.
We also provide therapeutic (patient-centred) exercises within an evidence-based biopsychosocial model of health and illness to help people achieve pain-free living.
Your First Chiropractic Visit
Where is Square One?
Our address is 13A Bukit Pasoh Road.
If you are coming by MRT, alight at Outram Park Station. It is from a two-minute walk from exit H (Dorsett Hotel) at the purple line.
If you are coming from Tanjong Pagar, we are a two-minute walk from Pinnacle @ Duxton via Duxton Plain Park (or approximately five minutes from the 100AM building).
Do I require X-Rays?
Most of the time, no.
For non-traumatic musculoskeletal conditions, an X-ray is usually not required. We follow radiographic guidelines and do not take unnecessary, routine X-ray of our patients. Your health is paramount to us!
How long before chiropractic treatment works?
Most of our clients start to notice a change by the second and third visit. Most achieve full recovery within four to seven visits depending on the condition and severity of the symptoms.
We are one of the only chiropractic clinics in Singapore to deliver such quick results. This allows us to not sell packages.
What is the recommended chiropractic adjustment frequency?
The recommended chiropractic adjustment frequency for most chiropractic clinics in Singapore is 3 times per week for a month or more.
Square One doesn’t subscribe to the same model of care. We see our clients between four to seven visits across a three month period depending on how you respond to our treatment.
Can I exercise after treatment?
Yes. We strongly advocate for our patients to keep active (and exercise) within their fitness capacity and pain tolerance.
In fact, 100% of our patients receive an exercise program at the end of their first visit.
If in doubt, seek professional advice from your preferred healthcare provider.
Will you be cracking my spine or joints?
Most likely, not.
90-95% of what we do is exercise or movement-based. In some cases, we utilise manual therapy such as chiropractic adjustments or dry needling as adjunct therapy.

Do you offer 'back out of alignment' treatment?
No. Alignment and your spine being out of alignment is an urban myth. You can read more about it at our blog post on text neck and anterior pelvic tilt.
Many Singapore chiropractors use alignment to upsell chiropractic sessions. There is no research to show that there are benefits to improving alignment and posture.
Furthermore, chiropractic adjustments are simply not enough to change your alignment. To understand why, check out our blog post on chiropractic adjustments.
