I think that is why chiropractors in general have a bad rep when I was in the US. They try to sell you large packages when all you really want in the first place is just fix my problem right?? :x Perhaps that is why as skeptical as was at first upon returning from the States, I appreciate chiropractors like Dr Lim a Singaporean Chiropractor at Lifesystems Chiropractic. In about 6 visits, my lower back was fantastic. Who says chiropractic has to be expensive. For those who experienced being asked to sign 60+ visits..sorry...and still don't get results...I'm very sorry...well that's life.

Dr Theo at Light Chiropractic is a great Chiropractor

There are no heavey packages and he spends time on clients. Even does work on the arms and legs which is rare to find. Most Chiropractors just focus on the spine but he does the whole body.

Best part is there are no xrays required and no fear mongering

Kinesis at SMU is great. Dunt remember the guys name but he is ang moh and he looks like a slim santa claus. His services are outta the world. He is great. When no one could cure my back pain ( went to chinese sinseh, western doctors, ayurvedic...the works ), he could!!!

Prices for Chiropractors range in Singapore, can cost as low as $70-150.
I tried like 4 different practices and I liked Light Chiropractic the most. They are not the lowest and not the highest, in fact one of the higher ones but the quality of care is very good.

When getting any kind of service, price should not be the issue. First you have to see if the person knows what they are doing. Then you have to see if they really have an intention to help you or just scare you to sign up for crazy packages.

I went to an Osteopath after a car crash (whiplash injury) if you aren't aware of them, they kind of do a mixture between Chiropratic work and physio... The trouble is they aren't a regisitered profession in Singapore so there aren't many about. However, Neelam Rai was good - she's a british practitioner and based in Forum shopping centre, my wife's colleague recommended the practice to me.

Osteopathy and Podiatry - #06-03 Forum (office block) tel 67344236.

Hope this helps.

sounds a bit high to pay 6k
have not heard of a practice in toa payoh, maybe you should shop around to see what else is available.
still go to my chiropractor Dr. Theo and Light Chiropractic, there are a lot of factors to think about, location and most importantly quality of service

Some people charge a little more but are better, some people charge less but they are not as good which means you have to do more visits which cost more.

You are better off going to the better person because they can get you well faster which means you will not have to come as often. So price should not be an issue. Food for thought

If you buy something cheap it will break on you because the craftsmanship is poor. If you pay more it wont break so you will end up keeping it for years.

after reading some feed back on this site. I decided to try the doctor at
Light Chiropractic at clarke quay

I would have to say I was unsure he could help me because he is a smaller guy than me and my previous Chiropractor was 230 pounds (im 210). However he was able to adjust me very easily with more ease than my last Chiropractor in America. He was also able to adjust my wife which is only 115 pounds with very gentle ease.
Somehow my vision was more clear after the treatment too.

I read on the forum that some people are paying $6000 to see ther Chiropractors, that is insanely high. There is no way they can ever do those kinds of things in the states.

I recommend Dr Theo to anyone that needs a good Chiropractor.
