At Neo Chiropractic clinic, our Doctors of Chiropractic undergo stringent qualification tests that include at least five years of University studies in an accredited Chiropractic program, and understudying from well-established and highly-regarded mentors. Only thereafter do we qualify them to treat our patients, and recognise them as registered Health Professional Chiropractors.

Some Words From Dr Neo
"My chiropractic journey began at the age of nineteen when I was conscripted into the Singapore army. It was in Officer Cadet School where I experienced severe lower back pain during outfield training. I didn’t think much of it as I thought the pain would go away after some rest, but it didn’t. The next few days, I was having difficulty getting out of bed and was unable to continue with the training.
The Medical Officer gave me painkillers and muscle relaxants; while it did help reduce the pain, the injury relapsed once I was off medication. I was getting worried because if too many training sessions were missed, I would not be able to commission as an Officer of the Singapore Armed Forces.
I was referred to an Orthopaedic specialist, where I was diagnosed with disc protrusion (commonly known as “slipped disc”) and was recommended surgery - an option that I thought should be a last resort. After the visit, I decided to try alternatives like TCM and Acupuncture. Unfortunately, those treatments only gave me temporary relief.
This was when I visited a Chiropractor. After a few chiropractic adjustments, my lower back felt much better, and the pain did not relapse. I realized the dramatic improvements that good Chiropractic treatments provide - how it allows the body to utilise its innate self-healing ability - and have been seeing my Chiropractor ever since.
It was this life-changing experience that prompted me to study the science of Chiropractic methodologies, become an accredited Chiropractor myself, and helping the community achieve their wellness goals."
