Podium finish at the 2016 Singapore Marathon

The last pair of hands on me before a race is that of a Doctor of Chiropractic. It was no different leading up to last weekend’s Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. The result?

Why “Family”?

A patient asked me yesterday why my clinic is called Family Health Chiropractic Clinic. I thought this is an excellent chance for me to explain to anyone who cares to know.
