Say Goodbye to Back Pain Without Pain Medicine, Spinal Injections or Orthopaedic Surgery When You Experience the Functional Correction Method (FCM)!

The American Medical Association (AMA) recommends using non-invasive, non-drug therapies for general and lower back pain treatment before resorting to drug therapies.

As the first-line treatment for acute back pain, such methods, like chiropractic care, has been proven to relieve pain more effectively than just medication (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants) or only physiotherapy.

Furthermore, it has been established that a multidisciplinary approach, such as the one modelled in FCM, has the greatest chance of relieving chronic pain.

Thus, our treatment plan at Elite Spine Centres will be customised to your specific physical condition, with modern therapeutics and physical therapy that holistically address your issues.

We just don’t want to get rid of your pain; instead, we want to treat the whole person, possibly eliminating your back pain once and for all!

Saying goodbye has never been sweeter.

I found out about Elite Spine Centres after struggling with neck and shoulder pain and migraines. I have never tried chiropractic before. I had my own doubts and concerns. But decided to give it a try anyway based on the good review from Google. From the first moment I reached out, the team has always been very helpful and friendly. I came with lots of questions about my condition as well as the chiropractic itself. Dr. Mike understood my concern. He patiently explained every time I have questions, about my progress and also any other symptoms/sensation that I noticed after starting treatment. At the initial process, he gave a gentler adjustment, until I was more accustomed to the experience. He even went the extra mile to provide me with resources to help me exercise/train my shoulder. The comprehensive treatment, stretches and exercises given to me helped my symptoms a lot. They haven't completely gone away as this is a long process. But I haven't taken any painkiller again since then. Overall, great experience. I've even recommended this place to friends are experiencing similar issues. Thank you Dr. Mike and team :)

Very professional and caring team. Mum’s spinal issue improved after trying all sorts of therapy elsewhere. Knee problem has always been an issue too and i have seen great improvement.
Since am working in healthcare industry for 30+ years, rarely I will comment on medical treatments & Outcomes due to lot of unknown factors. However, this time I felt compelled to write this review for sharing my personal experiences with Dr Mike and his professionally trained team from Elite Spine Care centre. First, up all I have had a pleasant treatment and impressed with customized therapy and clinical services provided over 16 sessions at timely manner. They never acted like they didn’t have time for me. I received extensive help at any time from Dr Mike and all clinical and admin staffs, which I really appreciated. Since am in Technology side, my job required extensive work on IT systems, cause of that end of the day I used to have severe pain on my right neck, right shoulder and right leg. I got this pain from late 2015 when I attempted to lift a heavy object Since then I had a weaving Scapula on right shoulder & radiating pain on right neck and arm. I had numerous number of consultations with Ortho and spine specialists, MRI and CT studies and Physiotherapy sessions start from 2015. However, pain had increased steeply and even led to muscle loss on my right arm and shoulder joints. I could not bear the pain and decided to search for alternate treatments such as Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese massage, accupuncture, etc at various places. By God’s, grace one of my friend introduced Dr Mike and intially signed up for 16 sessions at discounted and offordable price I would like to say what a positive experience I had with Dr Mike and his team. They explained everything to me and made every visit more comfortable and worry free. After 4 sessions, I have realised the benefits and now I do not have much pain and recovering from muscle loss and scapula weaving. I have planned to extend the treatment for another 1 year for stabilise the condition. Right now am looking forward to have regular session with Dr Mike and his team. Once again my sincere thanks to Dr Mike, his therapists and all Clinical and administrative staffs for the respect and care that you have showed me. You are always very special people in my heart

Dr Mike and the Elite Gang have been amazing hosts in my chiropractic journey. Dr Mike often emphasises that chiropractic isn't a one-day miracle cure. Chiropractic is about the re-introduction of movements in which the body has not utilised and maintaining them. In the beginning, I was looking for a treatment that would help elevate the ache between my shoulder blades from physical activities. Dr Mike provided a fluid program which resulted in an improvement on my shoulder mobility and the ache reduced gradually. Eventually, my aim is to be more aware of my body structure and search for methods to improve muscle recovery after intense physical activities. Armed with skilled hands, new technology and a friendly, caring team, Elite Spine has provided me with an amazing care in my recovery and fine-tuning of my body. Thanks ya'lls!!

I had severe aching from the lower back down to my feet, it was so bad that I absolutely needed a massage almost everyday. Just a few sessions at Elite Spine made a huge difference and I could now walk/ stand for a long time and run abit without experiencing much soreness. Sleep quality also improved. I also like that there were home stretches recommended to improve condition and body posture. Doctors and staff there were very friendly, I could bring my toddler with me when needed. A tremendous improvement in quality of life, thank you!

Learn More About Back Pain

For our pain specialist to help with relieving pain, you’ve got to know the basics of back pain

The more you know, the more you can tell us, and the better we can create a back pain treatment strategy!

What are the types of back pain?

Lower Back Pain

Poor posture, an incorrect sleeping position, unsuitable lifting practices, and chronic overuse are all causes of low back pain.

The intervertebral discs and the joints between the vertebrae may be affected by these injuries. Everyday activities might also cause microdamage these locations, obstructing smooth movement and function over time.

Lower back pain often goes away after 2 – 6 weeks, and it can be separated into two categories:

  • Mechanical Pain

    This is pain caused by particular movements and normally goes away with prolonged bed rest. Muscle strains, ligament sprains, and wear-and-tear of the spinal joints and discs are the most likely causes.

  • Non-Mechanical Back Pain

    Pain that occurs without or with movement is referred to as non-mechanical pain. When the person is sleeping, it may cause pain symptoms to worsen considerably. It could be neuropathic or caused by a condition eroding the spine’s structure, such as an infection or cancer.


The sciatic nerve extends from the back of the pelvis down to the back of the thigh. It’s a major nerve that provides feeling to the back of the thigh, part of the lower leg, and the sole while controlling the muscles in the back of the lower leg and knee.

When the sciatic nerve is inflamed, it is known as sciatica. Alongside back pain, you may feel leg pain as well. However, sciatica itself is often caused by another issue, such as a herniated disc or a spinal injury.

Spondylosis is a degenerative condition that affects the spinal joints and the discs, ligaments, and joints. Spondylosis causes the discs between the vertebrae to lose their cushioning effect and may compromise the integrity of your ligaments.

This can lead to microscopic stress fractures in the vertebrae, weakening the bones to the point where it slips out of position. In addition, spondylosis can create nerve compression, causing pain or a tingling feeling in the legs or arms in severe cases.

Repetitive pressures on the spine, normal wear-and-tear as we age, and trauma are common causes of spondylosis.

Other Types:

Lumbar strain/sprain injuries.

Intervertebral disc injuries (bulging or slipped disc)

What are the common symptoms of back pain?

People may experience different symptoms, ranging from severe to mild back pain. Therefore, getting yourself checked out professionally before attempting treatment is always a better idea.

Some symptoms include:

  • Muscle spasm
  • Muscle weakness
  • Stiffness in the neck and shoulders
  • Occasional lower back pain that is numbing or sharp

However, seek immediate medical attention if your back pain presents as the following:

  • Chronic, severe pain that does not improve with rest
  • Bending in all directions that aggravates the problem
  • Pins and needles in one or both legs, persistent nerve pains, pain or sensation of numbness
  • Progressively severe pain over days
  • Leg weakness, walking difficulty, and unsteady walking
  • Back pain linked with loss of bowel or bladder function
  • Pain accompanied by loss of appetite, weight loss, tiredness, fever, and chills

What are the causes of back pain?

The back is a complex structure of joints, ligaments, bones, muscles, and nerves.

Thus, it is susceptible to a myriad of problems, ones you often can’t control—sprained ligaments, slipped disc, spinal stenosis, irritated joints, muscle strain, and compressed spinal cord or nerve roots, to name a few.

However, certain factors may increase your likelihood of developing a back condition.

Risk Factors of Back Pain

There are many ways people can develop back issues, particularly low back pain. Therefore, it is imperative that we pay attention to how we exert stress on our spinal column.

  • Age – The older we get, the higher the risk of having back problems.
  • Limited exercise – Limited movement can cause low back pain due to weak muscles.
  • Existing medical conditions – Certain conditions such as arthritis, obesity, and cancer can cause back pain.
  • Stress – Both mental and physical stress causes back pain. For example, people with anxiety and depression have a higher risk of developing back and neck pain.
  • Unhealthy habits – Smokers have a higher risk of developing back pain as they tend to cough more and harsher, ultimately resulting in disc herniation. Smoking also increases the risk of developing osteoporosis and inhibits blood flow to the spine.
