Suffering from neck and back pain, bad posture or chronic aches? There’s a chiropractor or posture alignment therapist in Hong Kong who can help.
A type of alternative medicine, chiropractic is a treatment where a practitioner or specialist — a chiropractor — uses their hands to help relieve problems with the bones, muscles and joints. Similar (but different to!) osteopathy and physical therapy, a skilled therapist helps you manage neck, back, and pelvic-related pains, and maintain good spinal alignment.
It’s important to pay attention to our bodies; after all, a seemingly small pain or ache can often be a sign of a bigger issue or injury. Luckily, Hong Kong is home to all kinds of professionals and practitioners of rehabilitation and pain management treatments to help improve your overall well-being. Here are our favourite chiropractors to go to for the care and healing your body deserves — for everything from chronic pain to sleep problems, headaches and migraines and more.
Editor’s Note: Any alternative therapy is in no way meant to completely replace conventional Western medicine and more traditional scientific techniques. Please consult your doctor if you are ever unsure, and to make sure that alternative techniques will not impact or hinder your regular medicine, prescriptions and treatments.
