Chiropractic treatment for neck pain in Singapore that’s affordable and effective
Chiropractic treatment for neck pain has a high success rate and can cost far less than some other therapies.
Neck pain is a common problem, and most people will experience at least one episode of neck pain in their life.
In some instances, it comes on suddenly and disappears quickly. In other cases, neck pain can be persistent and incapacitating, with some people suffering repeated episodes. Neck pain symptoms can lead to other problems such as headaches, shoulder pain, and insomnia.
Neck ailment can be caused by sports injuries or other traumatic damage or it may start gradually, possibly through poor posture or an uncomfortable work position. It can range from annoying to excruciating. In chronic cases, everyday activities can become unmanageable.
Neck pain and stiffness often result from injuries to or misalignment of the vertebrae in the neck. Unless treated, the condition can result in a slipped disc or cause nerve compression or spinal degeneration. This progression may lead to more pain and less functionality.
Types of neck pain
Your neck is home to seven vertebrae, with discs between them, blood vessels, lymph nodes, the thyroid gland, various muscles, the larynx, and the trachea. Conditions affecting any of these cervical components can cause neck pain.
There’re 4 main types of neck pain:
- Axial neck pain – when the muscles and ligaments fail to function properly together.
- Whiplash-associated disorder – with symptoms similar to axial neck pain.
- Cervical radiculopathy – caused by pressure on a cervical nerve root.
- Cervical myelopathy – compression of the spinal cord.

Benefits of neck pain chiropractic care
While some neck pain treatments – including massage and pain-killers – only provide short-term relief, chiropractic chronic neck pain treatment gets to the root of the problem. Neck pain chiropractic care may include several treatment options, depending on your specific case.
For instance, therapy by a whiplash chiropractor may involve chiropractic manipulation, exercises, lifestyle changes, and muscle stimulation. Stiff neck therapy is also often used in chiropractic to free locked-up areas and restore motion.
After a thorough consultation and examination, our chiropractor will determine the best form of chiropractic neck adjustment for your neck pain management.
Neck alignment chiropractic adjustment techniques include:
- Cervical spine manipulation – a core chiropractic adjustment entailing a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust of the hand.
- Activator method – this chiropractic neck adjustment benefits patients by using a small hand-held activator adjusting instrument to deliver a gentle impulse to the cervical spine to restore motion to a vertebra or joint.
- Shockwave therapy – a hand-held probe transmits high-intensity sound waves to encourage the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic Health and Wellness Clinic
Our clinic was set up in 1998 by pioneering Singaporean chiropractor Dr Liew after he graduated with a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from a top health sciences university in the USA.
Since then he’s successfully treated countless patients who have suffered neck trauma or developed medical conditions that affect the neck, helping them to get their lives back on track by alleviating pain and restoring function.
Dr Liew does his own chiropractic research into neck problems and other painful conditions in the rest of the body. He continually hones his expertise by monitoring advances in chiropractic treatment techniques.
I came to Dr Liew with a lot of complaints. He was very patient and looked into each of them.
Because my neck and ankle issues had existed for quite a few years, it took a number of sessions to treat them. Now, when the problems come back, it would take just 1 – 2 visits to have them fixed.
