I started seeing Dr Samantha when I was 4 months pregnant.
I had been having lower back pain for years – caused by my a pain in my right foot which hurt every time I took a step. I tried many different ways to try and alleviate the pain – wearing different types of shoes, heels etc, but the pain is still there. The pain got even worst when I became pregnant.
Dr Samantha sees me adjusted me throughout my pregnancy up until week
36 – 3 weeks before I give birth.
After the first 3 adjustments, I could feel the pain in my foot recede. I continued to see Dr Samantha every week. I had an easier pregnancy compared to my first 2 – no backache and I felt a lot more comfortable with my posture.
I really do appreciate Dr Samantha – for both reducing my backache throughout my pregnancy and for giving me assurance of treating me and my big baby bump!

I started to feel pain in my lower back in 2009 after a few months giving birth to my eldest daughter. I was constantly having back pain. From sleeping, standing and sitting for any length of time , my back will be giving me troubles.
I endured the pain as I thought this was normal. I took painkillers for years and tried all kinds of treatment. Even hired a personal trainer for a year, exercise 3 times a week, did yoga and pilates. But the pain didn’t go away and in fact got worst to a time when sometimes I wake up from bed, I couldn’t even stand straight and had to slouch while getting up. The pain was unbearable and trips to the emergency room to get painkiller injection was normal to me. It got really bad when my legs and feet was constantly in pain like something was pulling my legs and the pain just didn’t go away. My quality of life was at its worst.
I went to see specialists at various hospitals and was advised that surgery was the only thing that could take away the pain, yet I was told my stiff back could remain even after surgery. Others told me that I would have to just bear with the pain because I’ll never be pain free due to my condition. However, I decided not to opt for surgery, I wanted to find other alternatives – surgery is always last on my mind.
I stumbled upon a US website that offered chiropractor and physical therapy – it explained that if both treatments were done together the chances of recovering from back pain were good. So I started to search online to find out if there’s any place that can offer the same treatment in KL. That’s when I found Healthworks.
I met up with Dr. Samantha and was advised to do X-Ray and MRI scan. Once Dr. Samantha reviewed X-ray and MRI scan, she told me that with chiropractor and physical therapy treatment it would be possible for me to recover without surgery . I didn’t believe at first, but after 4 to 5 treatments, I felt like I was walking on air. My back didn’t hurt that much and my legs didn’t feel heavy and painful. I didn’t even realise that my extreme headaches and slurring speech were caused by my stiff neck – again pointed out by Dr. Samantha!
And I am happy to share that after exactly one year of treatment, for the first time in 8 years, I am back to a perfectly normal life. I don’t get up complaining that my back hurts so bad like before. Although I have to pace myself doing things, but my body doesn’t restrain me from doing work any longer.
Incidentally I brought my eldest daughter to see Dr Samantha as well. My 8yr old daughter always complained of having tightness/pain in her right leg especially near her hip joints. She always feels the need to position her leg in some position to loosen the tension and release the pain. If she doesn’t do this, she won’t be able to sleep or lie down for a long time. So she did X-Ray and Dr Samantha had a look at her. Mostly it was tight muscles around her hip to her legs. And she had to do regular chiropractic sessions to release the tension. Amazingly after a few months, my daughter doesn’t complain of any discomfort anymore and sleeps through the night well! We never knew chiropractic sessions would work well with kids as well!
I recommended my in laws to go for the sessions as well and within weeks they saw improvements. My in laws were not able to kneel and also were limping. Now they could do it with ease.
I fully recommend Healthworks to anyone. Not only are they experts at what they do, but their service and hospitality is second to none. For a mother that has a chaotic schedule around kids, they were very accommodating in terms of scheduling my visits.
Lastly, I would like to thank the team at Healthworks for giving me and my daughter pain free life. Words can’t express how deeply appreciative I am of Dr. Samantha, Yun-Perng and the rest of the team.

I had a L5/S1 prolapsed disc that impinged my right side nerve root. Due to the pain and numbness that I had, I was on medical leave for almost 2 months.
As my case was pretty serious that might require surgery and to avoid going under the knife, I was recommended to see a chiropractor and Dr.Barry was introduced.
I remember in my first visit, he showed and explained to me the spinal model, best of all, he said there is no need for surgery, hearing that was a HUGE relief. Within the 2 months, I underwent back adjustments and stretching technique taught by Dr. Barry and also laser therapies.
As time went by, the pain started to go off and went back to work. I was reminded and told to move, stand and not sit too long at my desk. It was a thing to adapt and it was something I didn’t know before. Until today, it sure works and makes a difference.
Later on, when I got better and to prevent myself from getting hurt, I had to strengthen my back, this is where I did my core and strengthening exercises with Bradley. With his personal sessions, he has introduced me proper ways to exercise that I didn’t know before. These exercises that was taught are definitely a lifetime thing that one can perform at home and anywhere.
Now, I look and feel much better than before! Thank you Dr. Barry & Bradley
I first got in contact with Yun in 2017. I suffered from back pain, which he was able to treat quickly. For some time now I’ve been in treatment with him for a tennis elbow, which also treats muscle aches.
He is a great physiotherapist and it’s immediately noticeable that he enjoys doing his job! After a detailed and comprehensive diagnosis he finds the origin of the pain. The affected joint and musculature areas are specifically treated by manual treatments and massages. Targeted training enhances the prophylactic effect. He then gives you easy-to-perform exercises, which are sometimes trivial, but are very impressive in terms of effectiveness and results. In addition, Yun provides tips for ones daily life, which help in the long term to avoid the existing complaints as well as overloading.
I can fully recommend Yun. His extensive knowledge and skill are reason for the high effectiveness of his therapy.
I was diagnosed with a herniated disk at L5/S1. This was causing major sciatic pain down my right leg. The Doctor who originally diagnosed the condition suggested that surgery was the next option.
I went to see Dr. Sam at Healthworks and she and the team were able to reduce the pain down my leg considerably and in doing so returned my quality of life.
One year on from thinking surgery was my only option, I am pain free and even just conquered Mount Kinabalu! – that’s me with the Orange Backpack.
A great, friendly team who have also helped both my mum and wife! Thanks to all at Healthworks.
I consulted Yun Perng the week before I travelled to Taiwan, because I was worried about the pain and tension in my knees, shoulders and neck.
After his treatment, he prescribed some simple to follow exercises to take along the trip. I am glad to say that I was able to enjoy the trip with very minimum discomfort.

I have found Mr. Lian Yun Perng to be both a reliable and dedicated physiotherapist. He works towards achieving results through encouraging and patience with a keen eye for detail which is evident in his thorough planning.
I have seen real improvement under Yun’s care and look forward to making further progress.
On 8 March 2019, I walked into Healthworks for the first time. I was suffering from pain and tight hamstrings in my left leg and a stiff lower back. With the comprehensive examinations, Dr. Lucas Ong knew exactly what to do and I was impressed by the results after just a few treatments.
During every visit he worked firmly and expertly on my spine whilst casually chatting to help me relax. I was amazed to find that the pain reduced almost immediately and continued to diminish with every session. I am confident that I am on the road to full recovery. Thanks, Lucas.
Just wanted to say a big thank you – especially to Sam, Yun and Glenn. 18 months ago I did not think it possible to complete an Ironman – let alone make it onto the podium! Without your specialist knowledge and genuine care none of this would have been possible.
A million thanks Sam, you’re a true professional and should be proud of what you have achieved.
I have been dealing with lower back pain since my early 20’s. Currently in my 30’s I had tried all types of management for my back. After consulting with Dr. Barry, he managed to further my understanding regarding posture and his methods helped me to function and get through numerous instances where my lower back pain flared up. Being a very patient and attentive chiropractor, Dr. Barry is definitely a chiropractor whom I personally recommend to anyone who has been suffering from any pain or posture issues. Being a person who is physically fit himself, I would also recommend him to athletes who need assistance in his field as well. – Dr. Rakesh
When I first came to Healthworks my shoulder muscles were so tight that my right shoulder was frozen and I had a stiff neck. The stiffness was also moving down to my lower back. I had difficulty sitting cross-legged for more than 20 minutes at a time without my back cramping up.
Dr. Samantha’s treatment was effective and fantastic as it provided almost instant relief and returned some mobility to my neck and shoulders. She additionally suggested a series of exercises, like chin tucks, to help strengthen my neck muscles.
The sessions have definitely helped to improve my mobility and reduce the overall stiffness in my upper back. I would absolutely recommend Healthworks Chiropractic team for their professionalism and effectiveness. Thank you, Dr. Sam!
I have always been quite fit and active, however my arms have never been very strong. I have seen real improvement in both my arm strength and also balance after starting the Healthworks RBS programme.
The most obvious change I’ve noticed is my ability to carry my own groceries without asking for help. Brilliant!
I suffered from both neck and back pain following the birth of my second child. I am indebted to Dr. Samantha and Mr. Yun-Perng who have treated me over the past year. After the initial investigation and X-rays I proceeded with a mixture of physio and chiro – whilst Mr. Yun-Perng taught exercises to relieve pain, Dr. Samantha performed her efficient Chiropractic treatments – the sessions were conducted in less than 15 minutes! So exciting!
Both of them have been very kind and even took care of my baby (without problem!) during treatments.
Thanks to the both of you, I have largely recovered and when my neck does hurt, I am able to self-improve by doing the exercises taught.
Thank you again for helping me.
Lian Yun-Perng of Healthworks has magical hands! I even followed him from his previous place of employment; having that much faith in his skills and therapy methods.
Ever since he started treating my feet they have improved remarkably. I find that I suffer much less pain when walking and can now confidently travel overseas without the aid of my walking stick.
I most certainly would recommend Yun-Perng to my friends and acquaintances for all their physiotherapy needs.
I would like to thank Yun Perng, my physiotherapist at Healthworks, for the positive results, his professional guidance and the results-oriented approach in realigning me!
After our sessions, my body contour is almost back to normal and I find myself much fitter – many of the health issues which I was experiencing have been overcome too.
Once again thank you very much.
Yun – ein Physiotherapeut mit sehr großer Erfahrung und Kompetenz
Ich hatte erstmals 2017 Kontakt mit Yun. Ich litt unter Rückenschmerzen, die er schnell therapieren konnte. Seit einiger Zeit bin ich bei ihm in Behandlung wegen eines Tennis-Ellenbogens, wobei auch Muskelschmerzen behandelt werden.
Er ist ein super Physiotherapeut und dass er seinen Job gern macht, merkt man sofort!
Nach einer eingehenden und umfassenden Diagnostik findet er den Ursprung des Schmerzes. Die betroffenen Gelenk- und Muskulaturbereiche werden durch manuelle Behandlungen und Massagen gezielt therapiert. Ein gezieltes Training verstärkt die prophylaktische Wirkung. Anschließend erhält man Übungen, die leicht durchzuführen sind. Diese wirken teilweise banal, sind jedoch sehr beeindruckend im Hinblick auf die schnelle Wirkung und Ergebnisse. Darüber hinaus gibt Yun Tipps für den Alltag, die langfristig helfen, bestehende Beschwerden zu lindern als auch Überbelastungen zu vermieden.
Ich kann Yun uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Seine umfassendes Wissen und Kompetenz sind Erklärungen für die hohe Effektivität seiner Therapie.
I visited HealthWorks as a result of my lower back pain. I had been suffering for quite a long time with no definitive solution, but the pain reached an unbearable point when it turned into sciatic pain with numbness in the leg.
The initial consult and following MRI revealed a disc herniation in my lower back. I started a course of chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments. Now, I am not bothered as much with the back pain anymore and when it does feel uncomfortable, I know the exercises that I need to do to eliminate it. Very helpful.
I believe their integrated approach toward regaining muscle strength through the various treatment worked for me very well. The gym studio included at their facility was ideal to perform this type of programme. Totally recommended!
