  1. So this paper just came out earlier this month: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1521694219300233 It is still in press and also behind a paywall but we have summarised all the findings in our latest blog entry for those interested - 9 High Value Tips For Your Tendon Pain: From A Chiropractor's Perspective Tendinopathy affects runners from the more common Achilles tendon to patella tendon, and even glut/hamstring tendinopathy. Reach out to us if you've any questions about the article
  2. So this was just published under a year ago and it followed runners across two years. The full text of the paper is behind a paywall but we posted a summary of it on our blog at https://squareone.com.sg/resources/running-injuries-separating-truths-from-marketing-fluff/ I highly highly recommend all runners to look into it because there are quite a bit of surprises in there!

    Dull Pain on Right Shin

    I wouldn't say needlessly but we do get people who come to us while seeing a sports doc or people who come to us after seeing a sports doc. At the end of the day, a good/ethical doctor will always advocate for conservative care first. At this point in time, research/evidence highly points towards exercise intervention. Of course recovery will also include load management, return to sport type programming!

    Plantar Faciitis Advise

    Try intrinsic foot muscle exercises. If you do a google, a few of them will show up. We haven't really written anything specific to plantar fasciitis but check out our latest blog entry Nine High Value Tips for your Tendon Pain (references are all included). The same concepts will apply to you :) Let me know if you've any questions.

    Looking for good TCM physicians

    Physiotherapy is definitely a better option because exercise prescription is outside the scope of TCM. While TCM is perfect for pain/symptom relief (especially acupuncture - it is included in back pain recommendations worldwide), back to sports is a completely different ball game! If you are open to it, you can also consider seeing a chiropractor/sports chiropractor. Check out these articles from Harvard Medical School: Where to turn for low back pain relief Chiropractic care for pain relief You can also check out a blog entry we wrote a while ago - Why should I see a chiropractor? Quite a number of links are missing when we did a web revamp. We are still in the process of getting them back into the site. If you have any questions, feel free to ask away! ETA: If you are looking for a physio, we can connect you with some one from UFIT who will be suitable!

    Dull Pain on Right Shin

    You don't have to go straight to a sports doctor. You can try a sports physiotherapist or a sports chiropractor first. You would one some one who is trained with athletic injuries with a focus to get you back to sports. This will involve rehabilitation and strength-training! You'd probably find this post interesting: Surprising Lessons From Watching The World's Best Runners. I practise as a sports chiropractor in clarke quay - my details on my profile. If you prefer a physio, I can get you in touch with some one at UFIT who would be suitable for you. As far as sports doctor goes, most of my patients see Dr. Cormac O Muircheartaigh from The Sports Medicine Lab.
  7. When I was looking for a chiropractor for my father back in 2015, I remembered calling over ten chiropractic clinics in Singapore to ask for their fees. The phone conversions ended badly. It was a frustrating experience. Not only did their websites not have a fee structure of any kind, the receptionists were not able to advise on the costs involved over the phone as well. “It depends on the doctor’s findings during your first visit”, so they say.
