Customer Appreciation

Ian Wade

Thank you to Dr. Sam and Dr. Lucas from Healthworks!

After a few years of working on a computer from home, combined with having two small children to deal with (as well as the everyday aches and pains associated with hitting middle age), I had developed quite a lot of discomfort in my lower back.

Sam and Lucas were able to offer a quick, yet indepth diagnosis of my condition, explaining to me in a technical yet easy to understand manner, exactly what was wrong, the short term alleviation of pain, mid term treatment plan, as well as the long term upkeep and maintenance of the work done by them.

I was, and continue to be, impressed by their communication, friendly manner and a genuine desire to want to get to know me as person, rather than just being a client or a customer.

I cannot thank or praise the team at Healthworks enough.

Highly recommended.

family testimonial
I started to feel pain in my lower back in 2009 after a few months giving birth to my eldest daughter. I was constantly having back pain. From sleeping, standing and sitting for any length of time , my back will be giving me troubles.
 
I endured the pain as I thought this was normal. I took painkillers for years and tried all kinds of treatment. Even hired a personal trainer for a year, exercise 3 times a week, did yoga and pilates. But the pain didn’t go away and in fact got worst to a time when sometimes I wake up from bed, I couldn’t even stand straight and had to slouch while getting up. The pain was unbearable and trips to the emergency room to get painkiller injection was normal to me. It got really bad when my legs and feet was constantly in pain like something was pulling my legs and the pain just didn’t go away. My quality of life was at its worst.
 
I went to see specialists at various hospitals and was advised that surgery was the only thing that could take away the pain, yet I was told my  stiff back could remain even after surgery. Others told me that I would have to just bear with the pain because I’ll never be pain free due to my condition. However, I decided not to opt for surgery, I wanted to find other alternatives – surgery is always last on my mind.
 
I stumbled upon a US website that offered chiropractor and physical therapy – it explained that if both treatments were done together the chances of recovering from back pain were good. So I started to search online to find out if there’s any place that can offer the same treatment in KL. That’s when I found Healthworks.
 
I met up with Dr. Samantha and was advised to do X-Ray and MRI scan. Once Dr. Samantha reviewed X-ray and MRI scan, she told me that with chiropractor and physical therapy treatment it would be possible for me to recover without surgery . I didn’t believe at first, but after 4 to 5 treatments, I felt like I was walking on air. My back didn’t hurt that much and my legs didn’t feel heavy and painful. I didn’t even realise that my extreme headaches and slurring speech were caused by my stiff neck – again pointed out by Dr. Samantha!
 
And I am happy to share that after exactly one year of treatment, for the first time in 8 years, I am back to a perfectly normal life. I don’t get up complaining that my back hurts so bad like before. Although I have to pace myself doing things, but my body doesn’t restrain me from doing work any longer.
 
Incidentally I brought my eldest daughter to see Dr Samantha as well. My 8yr old daughter always complained of having tightness/pain in her right leg especially near her hip joints. She always feels the need to position her leg in some position to loosen the tension and release the pain. If she doesn’t do this, she won’t be able to sleep or lie down for a long time. So she did X-Ray and Dr Samantha had a look at her. Mostly it was tight muscles around her hip to her legs. And she had to do regular chiropractic sessions to release the tension. Amazingly after a few months, my daughter doesn’t complain of any discomfort anymore and sleeps through the night well! We never knew chiropractic sessions would work well with kids as well!
 
I recommended my in laws to go for the sessions as well and within weeks they saw improvements. My in laws were not able to kneel and also were limping. Now they could do it with ease.
 
I fully recommend Healthworks to anyone. Not only are they experts at what they do, but their service and hospitality is second to none. For a mother that has a chaotic schedule around kids, they were very accommodating in terms of scheduling my visits.
 
Lastly, I would like to thank the team at Healthworks for giving me and my daughter pain free life. Words can’t express how deeply appreciative I am of Dr. Samantha, Yun-Perng and the rest of the team.

I have been suffering from lower back pain for quite some time and have been to a few chiropractors for treatment but to no avail. My daughter recommended me to Healthworks and after a few treatments by Dr Samantha Ong, my back pain was completely relieved. Thank you Dr Sam, for the professionalism shown!

I was diagnosed with a herniated disk at L5/S1. This was causing major sciatic pain down my right leg. The Doctor who originally diagnosed the condition suggested that surgery was the next option.

 

I went to see Dr. Sam at Healthworks and she and the team were able to reduce the pain down my leg considerably and in doing so returned my quality of life.

 

One year on from thinking surgery was my only option, I am pain free and even just conquered Mount Kinabalu! – that’s me with the Orange Backpack.

 

A great, friendly team who have also helped both my mum and wife! Thanks to all at Healthworks.

二人目出産から首痛と腰痛に悩まされ、約一年間サマンサ先生とユンポン先生にお世話になりました。最初はレントゲン写真を見せて痛みの原因を詳しく調べてくれます。

 

お二人ともとても優しくて赤ちゃんを連れていっても全く問題なく施術してくれました。

 

ユンポン先生は痛みを和らげる運動を指導してくれ、サマンサ先生はカイロで15分弱の短い間に効率よく施術してくれます。早々バキバキされるので最初はびっくりしましたが、慣れるとバキバキも心地よいかも?(笑)

 

お二人のお陰で大分回復し、首が痛いなぁと思った時は教えてもらった運動をすると改善します。

お世話になりました。

ありがとうございました。

For years i had the habit of ‘twisting’ my neck and back. The habit was a result of my job which i suffered neck and back pain. Instead of feeling comfort, that habit made it worse, until i met Dr Lucas, the Chiropractor. He instintively knew my problems and rectified them. Now i am totally cured but i choose to continue my treatment

On 8 March 2019, I walked into Healthworks for the first time. I was suffering from pain and tight hamstrings in my left leg and a stiff lower back. With the comprehensive examinations, Dr. Lucas Ong knew exactly what to do and I was impressed by the results after just a few treatments.

During every visit he worked firmly and expertly on my spine whilst casually chatting to help me relax. I was amazed to find that the pain reduced almost immediately and continued to diminish with every session. I am confident that I am on the road to full recovery. Thanks, Lucas

I started seeing Dr Samantha when I was 4 months pregnant.

 

I had been having lower back pain for years – caused by my a pain in my right foot which hurt every time I took a step. I tried many different ways to try and alleviate the pain – wearing different types of shoes, heels etc, but the pain is still there. The pain got even worst when I became pregnant.

 

Dr Samantha sees me adjusted me throughout my pregnancy up until week

 

36 – 3 weeks before I give birth.

 

After the first 3 adjustments, I could feel the pain in my foot recede. I continued to see Dr Samantha every week. I had an easier pregnancy compared to my first 2 – no backache and I felt a lot more comfortable with my posture.

 

I really do appreciate Dr Samantha –  for both reducing my backache throughout my pregnancy and for giving me assurance of treating me and my big baby bump!

Healthworks team,

Just wanted to say a big thank you – especially to Sam, Yun and Glenn.  18 months ago I did not think it possible to complete an Ironman – let alone make it onto the podium! Without your specialist knowledge and genuine care none of this would have been possible.

A million thanks Sam, you’re a true professional and should be proud of what you have achieved.

When I first came to Healthworks my shoulder muscles were so tight that my right shoulder was frozen and I had a stiff neck. The stiffness was also moving down to my lower back. I had difficulty sitting cross-legged for more than 20 minutes at a time without my back cramping up.

 

Dr. Samantha’s treatment was effective and fantastic as it provided almost instant relief and returned some mobility to my neck and shoulders. She additionally suggested a series of exercises, like chin tucks, to help strengthen my neck muscles.

 

The sessions have definitely helped to improve my mobility and reduce the overall stiffness in my upper back. I would absolutely recommend Healthworks Chiropractic team for their professionalism and effectiveness. Thank you, Dr. Sam!

I have always been quite fit and active, however my arms have never been very strong. I have seen real improvement in both my arm strength and also balance after starting the Healthworks RBS programme.

 

The most obvious change I’ve noticed is my ability to carry my own groceries without asking for help. Brilliant!

I am working long hours sitting in front of the computer for 2 years.

My left shoulder blade hurts more and more year after year .Soreness radiates down my upper arm at rest and worse when at work. I can’t lift my arm for too long.

After an intensive bi-thrice weekly- sessions with Dr Samantha coupled with bi-thrice weekly sessions with physiotherapist Sobeni for 1 month, I have a better upper back posture and decrease in soreness over my left shoulder n upper arm. Dr Samantha knows what and where the problem is and targets the area that needs to be treated without going too far. She is friendly and informative. You can see she is experienced with a variety of cases. Sobeni knows what she is doing, she caters to my condition of that day and recommends the suitable treatment type for me. My only regret is that I can’t complete my treatment with them due to time constraint, but i have advises which I will comply with to help soothe my back when it hurts. I go for my sessions as booked and didn’t need to wait, as their time management is excellent.

I was recommended by a good friend due to my intense discomfort & pain in the neck due to pinched nerves (cervical). Hence it affected my arms and caused numbness on the hand which made it difficult to grip things and felt very uncomfortable. When i met Ms Sobeni, the Physiotherapist, i received the treatment which was different from other centres. Firstly, she massaged my nerves on the hand and shoulders to calm them before applying ultrasound. These few months have proven very effective. I am still continuing my therapy although my condition has improved almost 90%. I have been to many physio centres but Healthworks has by far been effective. I highly recommend those in need of physio or chiro to seek out their website

I visited HealthWorks as a result of my lower back pain. I had been suffering for quite a long time with no definitive solution, but the pain reached an unbearable point when it turned into sciatic pain with numbness in the leg.

 

The initial consult and following MRI revealed a disc herniation in my lower back.  I started a course of chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments. Now, I am not bothered as much with the back pain anymore and when it does feel uncomfortable, I know the exercises that I need to do to eliminate it. Very helpful.

 

I believe their integrated approach toward regaining muscle strength through the various treatment worked for me very well. The gym studio included at their facility was ideal to perform this type of programme. Totally recommended!

When I first met Dr.Sam in 2018, I was diagnosed with slipped disc (lower back) and was on strong pain killers during my recovery. She listened to my problems and checked my MRI report carefully. Then came up with a comprehensive treatment which resulted in swift recovery and strengthening of my core muscles. I am really grateful for her professionalism and her understanding of the Chiro science that helped me in my recovery significantly. I highly recommend her.

I first approached Healthworks at end of October 2020. Following the assessment and examination of my condition, I was diagnosed with low back pain and upper trapezius tightness. According to my conditions, there was physiotherapy treatment created for me which will be conducted by Veronica Seow. After the sessions with her, her excellent treatment provided me more relaxed as my shoulder tightness was reduced immediately. Thank you , Veronica !

Also, I would like to thank Dr Lucas Ong, my chiropractor at Healthworks. His treatment was fantastic as it reduced my lower back pain and continued to diminish with every session. I was impress by the results after just 1 to 2 treatments with Dr Lucas.

I would recommend Healthworks Chiropractic as their professional services have definitely help me to overcome my problems and eventually full recovery to my body.

Once again thank you so much
