She, however, maintains her main practice which has catered for the KwaDukuza/Stanger community for over 13 years.
Dr Singh explains that her studies and unique life experience gives her an edge in understanding, diagnosing and treating her endearing patients. “I had been the patient prior to becoming the Doctor”, said a resilient Dr Singh who, during her studies, survived a near fatal car crash that left her in a coma for 2 weeks. After having sustained cervical spine fractures (a broken neck), with paralysis, in her 2nd year of study, Dr Singh used this setback as motivation to further her Chiropractic journey.
Despite numerous challenges after her accident, Dr Singh went on to complete her Master’s degree, having completed arduous research relating to the injuries that she had sustained. This earned her recognition both locally as well as internationally, from the World Federation of Chiropractic.
“A Chiropractor is a practitioner who is involved in the conservative care of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractic is an evolving profession. I look forward to enlightening the masses by demonstrating the benefits of the profession whilst simultaneously assisting each patient in their independent healing and growth”, said Singh.
