I started this blog to offer evidence-based chiropractic content so people could make informed-decisions about their pain treatment.

It has since grown to include other topics, in over 200 posts, to provide a true biopsychosocial, whole-person approach to helping you find freedom from pain.

I’ll like to thank the support of my readers — all 10,000 of you — who have helped this site grow to become the most read chiropractic/physiotherapy blog in Singapore.

To facilitate your reading experience, I am compiling an essential reading list. If you prefer, you can scroll down to access the blog in reverse chronological order (newest entries first).

Why chasing pain relief will get you nowhere for your recovery

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. [...]

Is yoga the ultimate back pain cure?

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 [...]

If my disc herniations are not causing my pain, then what exactly are you treating?

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 [...]

Wim Hof in Singapore: Finding peace in a frantic world?

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 [...]

The curse of the straight neck aka loss of lordosis

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 [...]

Did you miss out on our ‘How To Get Rid of Endless Pain’ webinar?

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 […]


Stop doubting exercise. It works for chronic pain!

As a chiropractor, we know for decades (yes, decades) that exercise works well for chronic pain. Since the 1990s, research is able to show that exercise is an effective treatment. If we were to dig back further, exercise has been part of chiropractic since over a hundred years ago. So in that sense, exercise, really [...]

Dear pain patients, high-value care is not in being touched

A lot of people are shocked by how much we charge for our consultation and recovery programmes. They think it's staggering out of proportion compared to other chiropractors in Singapore. These comparisons are often based on how much we charge versus how much our competitors charge per session, without considering the true value that we [...]

Stay healthy with Apple watch: Do wearable activity trackers work?

We know increasing physical activity is no easy feat. In our blog post earlier this week, we highlighted that only 10% of healthy-weight children in United States meet guideline recommendations for exercise, sleep, and screen-time. To some extent, we live unhealthily since we were kids! Picking up a new health behaviour is a complex change [...]

Science is always growing. New science debunks serotonin-hypothesis of depression.

Part of problem with being an evidence-based chiropractor is that you gotta repeatedly keep up with research. Sometimes new research challenges our existing knowledge base, and this is particularly problematic because it means our clinical practice would have to change. Today, we are going to talk about depression. Yes, you are right in that depression […]


It all starts from when you are young!

As a chiropractor, I work with people living with chronic pain. In many cases, chronic pain patients will blame specific injuries or "bad" posture or muscle imbalance as the cause of their pain. While these "causes" of pain may make sense to us, studies show that they poorly correlate with pain experiences. In other words, [...]

Knee Osteoarthritis: Is walking good for my knees?

As a chiropractor that works with both chronic knee pain and functional movement training, I often hear people saying that walking or running is bad for their knee joints. The (false) belief often stem from the wear and tear narrative, where the use of your joints is assumed to cause degeneration and can lead to [...]
