Dr Kelvin Chew (Chiropractor)
Dr Kelvin Chew opened You Chiropractic's doors (Adelaide clinic) in 2020 with the intention of creating a clinic that addresses chronic pain from the bottom-up. While most people address their pain from a top-down approach using drugs & surgery, Dr Kelvin supports the practice of addressing the underlying cause(s) of chronic pain.
With 7 years of clinical experience, Dr Kelvin's practice follows the philosophy that chronic pain relief & management is most successful when patients are treated as whole human beings, rather than individual parts that are painful.
Chiropractors are popular for the adjustments of their patient's spine, but Dr Kelvin broadens this approach by also checking the patient's jaw, legs & arms every appointment. The reason for this is simple - often times the underlying cause for your pain is in your peripheral nerves, situated outside your spinal cord.
Dr Kelvin Chew's focus on chronic pain comes from his own experience as a patient during childhood.
After getting into a major car accident back in 2002, Dr Kelvin started to gradually develop chronic pain symptoms. Chiropractic was an unexpected blessing that set forth his journey to truly understand chronic pain, especially when caused by postural, repetitive & traumatic stress.
From firsthand experience, Dr Kelvin knows that chronic pain can happen to anyone, at anytime & any age.
