Osteoarthritis can be found in all joints in the body including your shoulders, hands, hips, knees, ankles, and your spine. It is a degenerative condition that comes about due to the wear and tear of our joints and spine. Even mild cases can exhibit symptoms of pain and stiffness.
At Kissun Chiropractic, we help our patients with spondylosis, arthritis and osteoarthritis by taking into consideration the patients’ age, level or degree of degeneration and likely rate of progression of the condition.
I was suffering from tremendous pain in my neck and lower back so much so that I was unable to do housework and take care of my grandchildren. After visiting Kissun Chiropractic, my pain decreased. I became more active because of the reduced pain in my neck and lower back and I am happier with my grandchildren as I can attend to their needs. My mood is also better when my pain has decreased to a great extent.
The Doctor is fantastic with his hands and is extremely kind and patient with me. He makes me feel very comfortable around him. I’ve been to government hospitals where all that I am given is medication to treat my pain. At Kissun Chiropractic, I have not been prescribed any form of medication. The Doctors use their hands to treat my pain and takes time to understand my condition, explain to me the root cause of my pain and advise me on how I can use time on my own to improve my pain via exercises and what I should avoid doing. The road to recovery definitely leads to Kissun Chiropractic; their patience with old people is commendable.
I came in initially with a multitude of aches and pains in my back, particularly lower back, hips and shoulder. After very few treatments, all these were alleviated and I have had no reoccurrence. Now I return for maintenance every 6 months or so - just to be sure everything is still ok. I have been, like many others, rather afraid of the “back clicking” methods used by other Chiropractors but the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic seem to achieve maximum effect with little pain. I particularly like his chiropractic treatment beds which work with his own methods to re-adjust the joints. I may be 3 years older than when I first met the Doctors at Kissun Chiropractic but I feel 3 years younger!
I was suffering from frequent neck pain and a stiff neck. Coming to a Chiropractor for help was indeed scary for the first time. However, the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic eased my uneasiness and assured me that he was trying to help. The Doctor professionally explained to me what was the cause of my pain in the neck and shoulders after an x-ray result and how it could be handled in a careful manner, thus assuring me further.
I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips and knee in 2014. I would get painkillers from my family GP twice a month. After years of taking painkillers, I wanted a second opinion. I consulted an orthopedic surgeon (ortho) who recommended knee replacement surgery which scared me as there was no guarantee I wouldn't have more issues in my hip after the knee replacement surgery, so again I searched for another opinion. I chanced upon Kissun Chiropractic and decided to give it a try. After my consultation, I was immediately impressed: the examination was thorough, more thorough than my ortho as the ortho never even touched my knee yet wanted me to do surgery. This Chiropractic Doctor did a series of treatments which was a fraction of the cost of surgery and I am now pain free, able to walk better and following his exercise program allows me to move around easier and I feel healthier.
I had a car accident in 2010 resulting in a whiplash injury with neck pain and aches. My orthopedic doctor diagnosed me with spondylosis and whiplash. He advised that nothing can be done and to just try and manage the pain with painkillers and muscle relaxants. My friend recommended the Doctor from Kissun Chiropractic as they had helped to cure her hip and knee problems. I took my medical records to Kissun Chiropractic and got the Doctor's opinion on what can be done. Within a few weeks of treatment the aches were almost gone. With some basic exercises which took less than 10 minutes each day, I felt no pain or aches in my neck. I really suggest anyone who is told to manage their problems with painkillers to visit Kissun Chiropractic and seek their Doctor's advice.
