Working from home during this Covid-19 pandemic creates an “on the ball” environment. It is so true that we continue to engage with work even outside office hours! Over 2 million General Practice (GP) appointments in the past year have been driven by stress-related illnesses – a sizeable number for our country of just over five million people. Headaches, migraines, backaches, and vertigo problems are the most common chronic symptoms of stress-related conditions.
Understanding Neck Pain
Neck pain is a common complaint amongst us in Asia. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture. From leaning over your computer or hunching over your workbench. Our neck has a tough job. It holds up the same weight as a bowling ball all day long! The bones at the top of our spines, along with our muscles and ligaments, support our heads.
Stress has a physical effect on the muscles in our neck. As we tense up, the tightness in our neck muscles contributes to neck pain. Chronic neck pain can also be a cause of irritability, fatigue, and even depression. Many stress-related conditions however cannot be cured effectively and directly by consuming medicine as they require in-depth nerve analysis. Issues such as backaches and migraines can in fact be effectively cured with chiropractic care.
Finding a Solution
Vitality Chiropractic Centres is the only dedicated migraine and vertigo specialist and the first Upper Cervical focused practice in Singapore. By bringing credibility, accuracy and state-of-the-art technology to the forefront, Vitality Chiropractic Centres has been a trailblazer in the realm of chiropractic care. Dr Shaan believes that to “Take Your Life Back”, chronic cases need a different speciality.
Dr Shaan D. Rai, chairman for charity and outreach at the Alliance of Chiropractic Singapore and founder of Vitality Chiropractic Centres, has been helping patients with headaches as well as neck, shoulder and back pains. These problems are due to long hours of work and improper working postures from hastily set up home offices and workstations. He estimates that there has been more than a 30% increase in the number of patients seeking treatment for WFH-related stressors since April 2020.
Vitality Chiropractic Centres utilizes advanced Computed Infrared Thermography, specialized X-rays and Dr Shaan’s specialized Upper Cervical technique to empower patients to reclaim their lives. An instance of his phenomenal practice was when a lady whose 20 years of headache had gone away within the first 10 days of treatment, allowing her more time to spend with her children and an easier time at work.
Throw Away The Pain Killers
Emphasizing that chiropractors are not ‘pain relievers’ or ‘human Panadols’, Dr Shaan has been unparalleled in his dedication to improving the lives of his patients. He utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and conducts diagnoses through scientifically proven technology. This helps to accurately analyse the nerve system for dysfunction at every visit. A typical consultation at Vitality Chiropractic Centres involves a rigorous process of looking at the health history of patients by doing a physical assessment and conducting nerve scans for accurate chiropractic care.
The Only Doctor
Being the only Doctor in Singapore to complete certification in TATS Knee chest for Upper Cervical Care, Dr Shaan also chairs the committee for Charity and Community Outreach for Alliance of Chiropractic (Singapore) and is an active member of the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), UK. Armed with years of experience, he has seen a range of patients. It ranges from 2 weeks old to over 90 years old, patients in wheelchairs to professional athletes. Even so, he continues furthering his knowledge.
In 2013, he engaged with the World Health Organisation (WHO) to further his chiropractic research. In addition, he is the only Doctor in Singapore to complete certification in TATS Knee chest for Upper Cervical Care – travelling to Australia, America and the Philippines for training. He has also completed post-graduate courses in Blair Upper Cervical, BGI (Bio Geometric Integration), TPI (Titleist Performance Institute – Golfers), MLS Adjusting and Syntropy Adjusting.
Love For Our Community
With a heart for the community, Dr Shaan also brings his skilled chiropractic therapy outside of the clinic. As part of his efforts to help healthcare workers during the circuit breaker period, Vitality Chiropractic Centres partnered with 2 other chiropractic centres to provide free consultations and treatment to healthcare workers.
