When it comes to chiropractic treatments, most people want instant relief. I get it. After all, living with lower back pain or neck pain is awful. All you want is for it to go away.
The problem with instant relief is that they don’t tend to last very long. Like pain killers, chiropractic adjustments make you feel a lot better right after. However, the relief you enjoy dissipates just as quickly.
Is this the results you are looking for?
Does this sort of yo-yo pain treatment sound like something that is sustainable?
I don’t think so.
Don’t chase pain relief.
It isn’t intuitive. But what you want to do for good long-term results is to not chase pain relief.
It’s kinda like running a business. You don’t want to be chasing the money. If you treat all your clients like cash cows, they will find out and go to your competitor next door.
We understand that the good things in life often don’t come easy.
Why should recovery be any different?
What you want is more function!
Someone reached out today to enquire about our services. He had gone to one of our competitors for 12 sessions previously and his symptoms had returned! He found our competitor too expensive and didn’t want to go back.
If this sounds like your own personal experience with recovery, then you really want to listen up: You cannot get meaningful results by chasing pain relief.
Yes, you heard me right.
In order for you to enjoy long-term success in your recovery, you will need to work on your own body. You have to increase what your body can do so it can support your desired lifestyle.
As your body become more robust and resilient, you will be able to sit longer at the computer. You will be able to get back to the sports you want to play.
You will start to experience less pain.
It is that simple!
First-line treatments are exercise, education, and advice to stay active.
There is a reason why all clinical guidelines make the same recommendations. It is because they work!
All clinical guidelines are all focused on empowering you to be the best versions of yourselves. To be able to help yourself without depending on anyone.
The only way you can achieve this is through exercise and lifestyle change.
What we don’t want is for you to depend on someone to do something to you so you can feel better.
Think about it. If you only get results from taking pain killers, what is going to happen the next time your pain hurts? You have to take them again.
What happens when the medication wears off? You have to take them again!
Passive treatments like chiropractic adjustments and massages, are no different.
Do you feel better after treatment? Yes.
Are they results forever? No.
What’s going to happen the next time you pain hurts? You have to go back to see your chiropractor.
This is why chiropractic clinics in Singapore offers maintenance care packages. There is an expectation that you have to keep going back for life.
What is the better solution?
Focus on long-term changes.
If you work on your body to make yourself more robust and resilient, nobody can take it away from you! It is yours to keep even after you stop treatment. This is what we offer at Square One Active Recovery.
Unlike our competitors, our focus is not to get you to keep coming back. Our focus is to make ourselves redundant to you.
To achieve this, we use a combination of exercises and coaching principles to help you help yourself find freedom from pain.
Do you get instant relief? No.
Do you need to work hard? Yes.
Do you get results? Yes.
Is it worth it? Absolutely yes!
If you are sick and tired of your pain coming back over and over again, book in an appointment with us to discover the difference an evidence-based treatment can make.

Our goal? To make our own services redundant to you.
