Dr Andrew Ching, graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree (Honors) in Exercise Physiology from the University of California at Davis. Thereafter, he worked as a manager for a Health & Fitness Gymnasium in downtown San Francisco where he had experience working with athletes and the general public in restructuring their fitness regime.
After several years, Dr Andrew advanced into the area of Chiropractic. He subsequently graduated with Honours Magna Cum Laude from Life Chiropractic College West (LCCW, USA). Dr Andrew has extensive experience of over fifteen years, dispensing chiropractic care to people from working executives, active sportsmen, the elderly and even babies! He has been on chiropractic mission trips to Nicaragua and El Salvador, in Central America, where he helped to treat hundreds of families and children. Always open to new philosophies, Dr Andrew does not restrict himself to just one school of thought or technique. As every patient case and physical body is different, the techniques Dr Andrew regularly employs are a mixture of CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics), Pettibon, Diverisified, Drop, Flexion-Distraction and Activator. From this myriad, he is able to decide what and which will be the most appropriate and suitable for a patient and dispense his personalised care in this manner.
Dr Andrew is a member of the International Chiropractors Association (ICA), World Chiropractic Alliance Singapore (WCA) and International Chiropractic Paediatric Association (ICPA), organizations that pride themselves in maintaining the highest standards of chiropractic care, professionalism and code of ethics. Always seeking to be a better doctor and to further improve himself, in 2010, Dr Andrew became the first and only certified CATS cranial practitioner in Asia, a technique which focusses on the cranial (skull) in addition to spinal health. This is a highly effective and beneficial treatment for people with chronic migraines, headaches, insomnia; as well as babies with difficult, prolonged or assisted births (eg. forceps and vacuum babies). Dr Andrew also practises Quantum Neurology, a muscular and neurology-based technique which further enhances and complements his existing skills set in order to help him achieve better results with patients who require more than just the standard manipulation and alignment of the spine.
In Singapore, Dr Andrew is a popular corporate lecturer on Health & Nutrition, Workplace Ergonomics & Injury Prevention, Sports Injuries and Chiropractic Wellness Programme. He has conducted many talks in government agencies such as Inland Revenue Authority (IRAS), Singapore General Hospital, Civil Service Club and multi-national companies such as Standard Chartered Bank, UBS AG, Prudential, Pan Resources Group, OSIM International, Philips Electronics, SAP Asia, MOE, HSBC Bank, Sony Asia, Volvo and Panasonic, just to name a few.
Well liked by many of his patients, consisting of working executives, families, children and even babies, Dr Andrew has made Singapore his home base for more than a decade and is a Singaporean PR.
