Dr. Neil Stakes

Dr. Neil Stakes


Singapore's first and only Swiss DolorClast Academy certified trainer.

Dr. Stakes was recruited to Singapore in 2001 to work for Humana Chiropractic and established Holistic Chiropractic in 2002 and left to establish Back II Life Pte Ltd in 2005, where he currently remains in a joint practice with his wife. During this time he has been involved in The Chiropractic Association (Singapore) serving on the Executive Committee and being a Past President as well.

He graduated from Technikon Natal (now DUT) where he moved from part-time assistant lecturer (Anatomy) to full time senior lecturer on completion of the Master's Degree:Chiropractic. He has lectured in areas such as spinal treatment and extremity treatment techniques, both of which requires an in depth knowledge of physiology and sports injury management. Dr Stakes worked with the junior national Men's Hockey team and accompanied the team on national and international tours where he received the Presidents award for service to Hockey South Africa. In addition, he has experience providing treatment to elite athletes of many disciplines at many national and provincial team tournaments like tennis, touch rugby and even surfing events to name a few.

His interest in sports injuries continues into the current practice that successfully deals with sports injuries alongside the traditional chiropractic specialties of back and neck pain, slipped discs and pinched nerves. His high work ethic and quest for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plans to facilitate rapid recovery and return to play for each patient has earned him a good reputation in his field. He regularly treats patients with different levels of activity from those that rarely if ever exercise to weekend warriors and semi-professional athletes as well as regular and irregular sports enthusiasts alike.

Over the years of practice and encountering difficult conditions, Dr Stakes became increasingly interested in new developments and blending these with chiropractic care. To this end he has armed himself with the latest techniques and the best technologies that money can buy like Swiss DolorClast and DuoClast, DTS decompression, Kinesiotaping and FAKTR certifications to compliment his chiropractic training. The evolution is ongoing and Dr Stakes is a life long learner committed to providing excellent care to his patients.

Incorporating a trained physical therapist and massage therapist to compliment the chiropractic services helps to ensure that conditions are treated from all angles within the practice as there is a growing need for integrated solutions. At Back II Life, Dr Lilly Leong is our resident homeopath also helps with mind-body connections in resolving deep-seated issues.
