Right. Unfortunately, if you don't know Vietnamese, it'll be a big problem here.

I don't know if they have a chiro service, but the physio at Hanoi Family Medical fixes me up every time I have a back problem.

I just had a session with the physio at SOS Clinic. Its too early for results but he seemed professional, knowledgeable and personable enough for me to make a second appointment.

OK, I met some people in the R&R tonight who said that two people were opening a Chiropractic practice within the next couple of weeks, right here in Hanoi (but they knew no more)! Does anyone know anything further, or has anyone heard anything about this? It's been 8 months since there was last a whisper of a Chiropractor, & that was in HCMC... If anyone finds out anything, please tell me, as I am a willing paying customer, right now.

And even faster than I usually head off to a bar, lo and behold, there I was at the clinic as soon as I heard that it existed, cash in hand and looking forward to a pain free future...

Blimey - Jay77 wasn't fibbing when he said it was an amazing facility! It's all new & shiny with state of the art kit. None of the Chiropractors that I have been to back in England ever had anything that good - they were lucky to have a ropey old Chiropractors bench with a wind up wheel on the side, but these guys have kit that is all chrome, black leather & electric controls.

Even better than that though, I am now a fine and upstanding citizen again, rather than a doubled-over grumpy bugger, moping around complaining about my back & neck!

I was treated by 2 chiropractors - Jason & Cassy. Both of them are westerners & both seem to have amazing skills. Standard procedure on the cash front - $30 for the initial consultation, where they find out where all of your problems are & $25 for the treatment (Dong or Dollars, my choice). All further treatments are $25 unless you need something special like an x-ray or such (I didn't need one, I just needed straightening out & realigning thankfully). Every Chiropractor back home uses the same pricing model - except back home in England it is about double this price, so that was yet another reason for me to be a happy bunny.

These guys seem to really know their stuff & they have the kit to back up their experience - well, let's face it, they have a loyal customer in me now & I know a load of people at work who will also be ecstatic to find out about them, so I expect that they will be madly busy & hugely popular with everyone else whose body has gone out of whack.

100% recommended & long over due that we have a top of the range Chiropractic clinic in Hanoi. These guys are the best... & now we know where they are when we need them.

Someone already mentioned Dr Huong here, but I will mention her again.

In December, in the process of moving I did something to my neck and shoulder. After 3 nights of no sleep, I went for shiatsu therapy. It helped, but I think the treatment was more painful than the problem. Although the pain was relieved in my shoulder, it persisted in my neck to the point that I was wondering if the French had left a guillotine somewhere in Vietnam that I could use. My head felt like it weighed 25 kilos and I had to cradle it with a scarf to lie down. PAIN you say? Like you wouldn't believe!

I went to Dr Huong (who's English is excellent) who recommended two types of acupuncture treatment, one tradtional which would require multiple visits, or a "new" method which required 3 visits (2 weeks apart) and a 99% guarantee that I would not be visting her for the problem again. I went for the "new" method. The results were immediate. Two treatments later - I'm a new person. The third treatment will take place in a week. I'm thinking I don't need it, but I will take the doctors advice and go.

If you have back problems or neck and shoulder pains or things like that, go to Dr. Vu's Cabinet. Doctor Vu is not a chiropractor but he can treat well those problems by using deep tissue massage and/or acupressure. He'll crack your neck and your back too if you want. His cabinet is @ 66 Tu Hoa street in Tay Ho district (near Sheraton and Intercontinental Hotels.) Call 0904781116 if you want to arrange an appointment in advance.
