There is a growing body of research that shows that degenerative arthritis responds well to the Swiss DolorClast® method treatment.

After a treatment session harmless swellings, blue spots or pain may be experienced, all of which disappear in a short time. To alleviate most of these we usually follow each treatment with ultrasound therapy or use kinesiotape.

We had a fantastic experience with Dr Lily Leong at Back2Life clinic! She's patient, genuinely great with kids [and] my son's asthma has improved under her care. Highly recommend this clinic!
Dr Stakes cares more about your health and well-being than about making money. I knew he was a really trustworthy chiropractor because of what happened during my first few treatments with him.
I was suffering from shoulder pain for more than half a year and felt extremely frustrated and helpless. Dr Neil Stakes' treatment and advice helped me to heal the pain and gave me confidence that I could work towards living a pain-free lifestyle.
I was referred to Dr Stakes by a trusted friend. I shared with Dr Stakes why I finally came to see him and expressed my commitment to get well. And it was comforting and assuring when I hear him expressed his commitment to help me get well.
Dr Neil Stakes is amazing! Only a few sessions with him, my girl’s motor Tics reduced and after a few more sessions, her Tics is completely gone and she’s able to lead a happy typical life again. He’s really good with kids too, my 6 years old girl loves to visit him ????
I have been a patient of Back II Life since 2006 when I was pregnant with my last child. Dr Leong has been very crucial in helping my body deal with a challenging pregnancy, and then post labour, during and after cancer. Many underlying issues have resolved over time. I have less and less need for remedies as my health has slowly built up over the years with the help of Dr Leong, with only some basic maintenance needed. Back II LIfe truly helps people to get back their life!
