Poor Posture Correction & Scoliosis Treatment Singapore
Stand Tall with Elite Spine Centres’ Chiropractic Care!
How are you reading this page right now? Chances are, you are slouched over your device, with your shoulders hunched and rounded in.
Unfortunately, the past few years have seen an increasing number of people develop bad posture.
This trend is only growing with the heavily increased use of personal electronic devices, long hours seated at work, and lack of proper exercise.
When treated early, most instances of degenerative changes to your posture can be alleviated. While bad posture may not cause idiopathic scoliosis, it can worsen the spinal curvature.
If your scoliosis curves excessively, you will sometimes need spinal fusion surgery to correct your spine and alleviate the pain.
Furthermore, people who chronically exhibit poor posture put much more stress on their bodies, making them more prone to injury and pain.
Don’t just take our word for it; listen to this quote from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
“Deviations in the body’s centre of gravity have resulted in intestinal problems, varicose veins, osteoporosis, hip and foot deformities, poor health, decreased quality of life, and a shortened life span.”
In other words, not only does improper posture cause many adverse health risks, but it can shorten your lifespan!
These negative effects on your body may also lead to spinal degeneration as you grow older, which in turn may cause adult scoliosis!
Therefore, good posture is worth devoting more time and effort to maintaining, even if you don’t have any current aches or pains.
And the best way to boost your spinal health is a personalised treatment plan with Elite Spine Centres!

At Elite Spine Centres, we firmly believe in creating a low-stress, patient-centric environment.

We will work with you to address your concerns, ensuring that you understand your condition before proceeding with treatment.

Step 2 – Spine and Body Examination
Orthopaedic or neurological tests may also be performed if needed at this time. This will allow us to rule out possible underlying causes and obtain a proper diagnosis.
Most of our patients will be able to receive treatment on their first session once any potential safety concerns have been ruled out!
Step 3 – Doctor’s Report and Recommendations
Based on the findings, a customised plan of action will be discussed with you to help you reach your treatment goals.
Compared to the typical approach of symptom management via medication, doctors of chiropractic can deal with the problem right at the root.
That being said, chiropractic is not a miracle cure. In rare events that we cannot help, rest assured that we will help you find the appropriate treatment for your postural condition.
Step 4 – Holistic Chiropractic Treatment
Treatment usually involves chiropractic manipulations to restore proper joint mobility and reduce muscle and nerve irritation in surrounding soft tissues.
If needed, advanced therapeutic technologies, braces or posture correction tools may be used to complement your healing.

Scoliosis is a medical disorder where the spine curves to one side in a C or S-shaped curve.
Scoliosis can occur in middle or late childhood. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, the most common type amongst adolescents, frequently involves the thoracic spine. This leads to a rather noticeable hump in the mid-back, especially when they bend forward, often only on one side.
Meanwhile, adult scoliosis affects the lumbar spine typically. As we grow, our spines may degrade, leading to this type of scoliosis, also known as degenerative scoliosis. In some cases, adult scoliosis can also be a secondary symptom of other medical conditions such as tumours.
Scoliosis can be mild, moderate, or severe.
The Cobb angle, the standard measurement for determining and tracking scoliosis progression, is calculated to measure spinal curvature.
Different scoliosis treatment options are available depending on the curvature’s severity:
- Less than 20° – Conduct observation with regular check-ups and x-rays. Chiropractic care is recommended to prevent the worsening of mild scoliosis.
- Between 20° to 40° – Bracing to slow down the progression of the spinal curve until skeletal maturity
- More than 40° – Depending on the locations of the significant curves and if they impact organ function or risk of further progression, spine surgery (sometimes spinal fusion) may be considered in cases of severe scoliosis.
Types of Scoliosis
Common signs of this type of scoliosis are uneven shoulders, prominent rib cage or protruding shoulder blades on one side and uneven hips. People with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis may also experience back pain earlier in their life.
Early detection from health screening and treatment of idiopathic scoliosis in children and adolescents can play a massive role in the nature and severity of their scoliosis as they age.
Functional scoliosis is a type of scoliosis that is secondary to functional problems such as:
- Misalignment of spinal elements
- Muscular imbalances
- Lower limb pathology
- Postural changes
Tech neck, also known as cervical kyphosis, is a painful condition that comes from the hunchback posture many people adopt when using their electronic devices.
Your head weighs around 5kg when you look straight ahead. However, even when you bend forward just 15 degrees forward to glance at your phone, it doubles the weight of your head, putting it at about 12kg.
Consider how much weight your neck muscles, upper back, and shoulders have to support when you bend your neck at 45 degrees!
Because you’re shifting your centre of gravity forward, your muscles will have to work harder. As a result, they’re supporting a heavier head, resulting in neck pain.
This pain is often the first symptom of tech neck. Others include:
- Constantly tense upper back and shoulders
- Numbness or tingling in the hands
- Hand weakness
- Rotator cuff tendonitis
If left untreated, tech neck could lead to inevitable long-term consequences, such as:
- Tension headaches
- Herniated discs
- Neck sprains similar to whiplash injuries
- Cervical radiculopathy – A disease process marked by nerve compression from herniated disc material or arthritic bone spurs. This impingement typically produces neck and radiating arm pain or numbness, sensory deficits or motor dysfunction in the neck, arm(s), hand(s) and finger(s).
- Problems with balance – Due to the head’s centre of gravity shifting more in front of the body, the prolonged forward head position associated with tech neck has been related to worse balance control.
- Jaw ache – Jaw discomfort, also known as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain, can be caused by a misalignment in the cervical spine or muscle imbalances.
- If left untreated, the forward bending caused by staring at your screen could become permanent. You may develop an irreparable hunchback appearance.
