All Well Scoliosis is proud to be leader in chiropractic treatment Singapore. Below is a brief background about chiropractic and how it can help your physical well being.
Chiropractic was discovered in 1895 by. Daniel David Palmer. the word “chiropractic” come from Greek words cheir (means “hand”) and praktos (means “done”), done by hand. First chiropractic adjustment was done to Harvey Lillard and through this adjustment, his misaligned vertebra on his upper back was restored and Harvey Lillard that was deaf for 17 years prior, his hearing improved (https://acatoday.org/About/History-of-chiropractic).
After more than a century, chiropractic has been evolving and the diagnosis, evaluations, and treatment has gone through extensive research as well as evidence based treatments.
Chiropractic is unique in its ability to address musculoskeletal problems that cause postural and physical changes. When a patient has symptoms, Chiropractic will take time to improve the source of the problems, but usually will take shorter time to relief the symptoms. The amount of time to improve depends on the condition of the problem itself.
There are possible risks of chiropractic treatments, one of them is stroke. Based on the research by Dr. Scott Haldeman et al., after a full reviewed of 10 years worth of malpractice claim files in Canada the likelihood that a chiropractor will be made aware of an arterial dissection following cervical manipulation is approximately 1 per 8.06 million office visits, 1 per 5.85 million cervical manipulations, 1 per 1,430 chiropractic practice years and 1 per 48 chiropractic practice careers (http://www.chiro.org/LINKS/stroke.shtml). This article is informing patients that cervical manipulation if it is done correctly is safe. Cervical manipulation can also be done using mechanical instruments and it is safe and will give similar improvement to the condition as well.
