Getting Proper Backing in Bali

Interview: Dr. Michael Bishopp of Bali Chiropractic


First opened in Bali in 2000, Bali Chiropractic has been offering island residents therapeutic natural healing and wellness nurturing to those seeking to avoid drugs or surgery. Chiropractic medicine calls upon the body’s natural tendency to heal and recuperate.

Operated under Chiropractic Indonesia, the Bali clinic operates in cooperation with a total of four clinics established in both Jakarta and Bali. The clinics offer chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, podiatry and personal training. recently caught up with Dr. Michael Bishopp from Bali Chiropractic. A graduate of Macquarie University in Australia in 1996 and worked in private practice in Australia before moving to Bali in 2012.

We sat down with the affable Dr. Bishopp who  told us more about his growing chiropractic practice in Bali.

The Interview: Dr. Michael Bishop, D.C – Bali Chiropractic What prompted you to establish a Chiropractic practice in Bali?

Dr. Bishopp: The huge demand was evident by surveying how many people in Bali had chronic spinal problems and other conditions like scoliosis. We found that 80 percent of adults here will experience crippling spinal problem and pain at some stage during their adult life. Children, also, are affected. Also, a lot of these sufferers have long-term experience with these problems. A lot of these problems are brought on by poor posture, accidents and genetic predispositions Chiropractic, while a major health practice in places like Australia, is still relatively unknown in Indonesia. What role can a chiropractor and your practice play in personal and family health for people living in Bali?

Dr. Bishopp: Chiropractic is for all ages and stages of life. From a pregnant women carrying a developing baby, infants, children, adolescents, adults to seniors. Everyone can benefit from a properly functioning spine and nervous system. At Bali Chiropractic we can help so many people with our state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, with chiropractic specialists, physiotherapists and personal trainers. We have a gymnasium to meet all health goals from acute care to elite athletic performance. In fact, most patients look forward to their treatments as many experience instant relief immediately after their treatment. However, our care is always gentle, safe and non-invasive What are some of the most common ailment you treat? Are their conditions that occur more frequently on a holiday island like Bali?

Dr. Bishopp: Most often, people go to chiropractors the first time for relief from back pain. But chiropractors treat a broad range of complaints, from back and neck pain, to headaches, arthritis and more. Moreover, people don't need to have a specific complaint to benefit from a visit. Chiropractors also focus on on-going preventive and wellness care. Chiropractic care is effective for people of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Tourists on holiday in Bali often need treatment due to prolonged sitting on the plane and the lifting of heavy luggage. Also tourists often engage in exercises they are not used to such as water sports, simply walking around more than normal and also sleeping in different postures - place stress on their delicate spines. When should someone come to see a chiropractor?

Dr. Bishopp: The most common reason that people make an appointment is to treat back and neck pain. Back pain can be caused by spinal misalignment and sciatica. Sciatic can cause weakness, numbness in the lower back and legs, and general pain. A chiropractor can assess someone’s problem, working to realign posture, improve core muscle strength, and improve the overall health of the spine. However, a chiropractor can treat much more than just back pain. Some pregnant mothers find that chiropractic adjustments improve their pregnancy and make delivery easier for both mother and baby. Adjusting methods are always adapted to a patient’s size, weight, age, and condition of health. Is treatment expensive?

Dr. Bishopp: We would say that everyone should at least get their spines checked regularly starting from birth due to the increase stresses our spines are subject to in our fast-paced world with its limited time to exercise and practice good spinal hygiene via regular exercises. Costs vary and generally depend on the number of treatments required to effectively treat a condition. A number of studies have shown that chiropractic care is extremely cost effective when compared to other "medical" treatment for similar conditions.

A 1993 Magna report concluded patients who transfer lower back pain treatment from physicians to chiropractors enjoy significant cost savings. People who use chiropractic care have substantially lower health care costs that those who see medical care only.
