10 Questions to Ask Your Chiropractor in Singapore

What should you ask your Chiropractor? You’ve looked online, read about upper cervical chiropractic in Singapore but you still aren’t sure who to see. Don’t worry, help is at hand! This article will help you to ask the right questions to find the perfect Chiropractor for you and your family.

What should I ask a Chiropractor?

1. Have they seen cases like yours before?

This is very important. If they haven’t had cases similar to yours they may not know the subtle modifications that need to be made to cater to your problem. It is also important to ask because it helps the Chiropractic Doctor decide if you are right for their practice, or if you need to be directed to an alternative Chiropractor or other health professional.

2. Do they offer long term solutions?

This is also very important! Be sure that the Chiropractor will provide you with a plan for care rather than for short term care or one off-appointments. This type of care may offer some short term relief, however without an adequate plan it will not deal with the underlying CAUSE of the problem. This results in the problem reoccurring in the future, or worsening because no appropriate solution was provided.

3. What are their qualifications?

Chiropractic is a protected term in America, Australia, Hong Kong, Europe and many other countries; however in Singapore it is not and legally anybody can say they are practicing Chiropractic (such as TCMs or massage therapists). To be a Chiropractor requires 5 years or full time education, receiving a Doctorate or Masters with the title of Doctor of Chiropractic (not a bachelors). All foreign Chiropractic Doctors MUST have qualifications to work in Singapore, but ask to make sure!

4. Are they accredited?

Accreditation is membership to as association, such as the GCC (General Chiropractic Council, UK) or ACA (American Chiropractic Association). This should be maintained every year to show the Chiropractor is up to date with current training.

5. Do they have a speciality?

If you have a specific case (such as a headaches, migraine, disc issue, pregnancy etc) it is best to find a Chiropractor that specialises in your needs or has undergone further training to serve you best. While ALL Chiropractors have been trained to help with nervous system problems, the elderly and children, it is smart to consult with someone with the most training relevant to you to help you get the fastest results.

6. Do they have a preferred technique?

A less common problem, but if you have a technique you would prefer (based on research or your previous experience) then ask them if they are trained in this technique or if they can direct you to somebody who is. At Vitality Chiropractic Centres our focus is Upper Cervical care, the first centre to do so in Singapore.

7. What are their prices?

Find a Chiropractor that fits your budget, but remember to be realistic about price. If they are charging very low fees this may be an indicator of the results you can expect. If they charge higher fees this may be due to them utilising better technology in their tests and providing faster results.

If you intend to use insurance, consult with your insurance company before a consultation. They can advise you how to claim, how much you can claim and what the process is for your claim. You can then ask the Chiropractor if they accept insurance or not.

8. Do they require x-rays?

For the majority of cases x-rays should be a standard to assess the condition of your body, how long your health plan should be and IF it is safe for you to receive Chiropractic adjustments. If they do not require x-rays they may not be practicing safely and may not be able to make an adequate assessment of your condition to help you in the long term.

If you are pregnant or are seeking care for your children then consult with the Chiropractor about the need for x-rays.

9. Do they see children?

While all Chiropractors are trained to work with children and infants, not all may continue to do so once they start in practice. Some Chiropractors will specialise in children and attain further education in assessment and techniques after graduation.

10. Do they regularly attend seminars?

This is last on the list but another important one! Make sure they are keeping up to date on technology and research, the same as you would expect from a Medical Doctor or Dentist. A more informed upper cervical chiropractic specialist will be able to provide you with the highest quality of care to provide a faster recovery.
