The Gen­tle Chi­ro­prac­tor

Central Leader - - NEWS -

When peo­ple meet Dr James Allen they of­ten say, ‘I know you. I’ve seen your story in the news­pa­per. You’re the guy who used to be a vet and now you’re a chi­ro­prac­tor. I’ve seen your photo with your two boys.’

“The idea of our news­pa­per ar­ti­cles was to help peo­ple feel com­fort­able when they come and see us,” ex­plains Dr Allen. “When some­one’s look­ing af­ter your health it’s nice when you feel com­fort­able with them. Those ar­ti­cles served their pur­pose. Now we would like to take it a step fur­ther.”

“We changed the name of our prac­tice to ‘The Gen­tle Chi­ro­prac­tor Co Ltd’,” says Dr Allen. “We did that be­cause we want peo­ple to feel com­fort­able with what we do. We want them to know that we can pro­vide ef­fec­tive chi­ro­prac­tic care with ad­just­ments that are gen­tle. We do this by be­ing very ac­cu­rate and very spe­cific.”

“We use the latest tech­nol­ogy,” ex­plains Dr Allen. “Tools like com­put­erised pos­tural as­sess­ment, ther­mog­ra­phy, elec­tromyo­g­ra­phy and x-rays al­low us to de­tect the key prob­lems. When some­one is work­ing on your spine and ner­vous sys­tem you want them to know ex­actly what’s go­ing on. We like to show you what we’re work­ing on so you can feel con­fi­dent that you’re in good hands.”

“Our new name also re­flects the ex­pe­ri­ence we are striv­ing to cre­ate,” em­pha­sises Dr Allen. “We want it to be easy and com­fort­able for our pa­tients. We have land­scaped grounds, plenty of park­ing and an of­fice built from qual­ity ma­te­ri­als. We play great mu­sic, have cur­rent mag­a­zines and a lend­ing li­brary. We use a Cour­tesy Sys­tem and a Wel­come Book to make our com­mu­ni­ca­tions more pleas­ant and ef­fec­tive. We be­lieve that the qual­ity of the lit­tle things re­flects the qual­ity of our care.”

Now per­haps you’re won­der­ing, ‘What do chi­ro­prac­tors do? What do they treat?’ “Well, as a chi­ro­prac­tor,” ex­plains Dr Allen, “we im­prove the align­ment of your body. We im­prove flex­i­bil­ity. We re­duce ten­sion in the mus­cles around your spine. We re­duce the stress on your ner­vous sys­tem. When we do this it is sur­pris­ing how much bet­ter peo­ple feel and how many prob­lems re­solve.”

“With gen­tle ad­just­ments we help peo­ple with all sorts of prob­lems,” com­ments Dr Allen. “From back, neck and leg pain to headaches and feet prob­lems. From shoul­der, hip and knee pain to asthma and si­nus prob­lems. We help peo­ple with di­ges­tive prob­lems, fa­tigue prob­lems, sleep prob­lems and stress re­lated prob­lems. The key is to get the body work­ing prop­erly by get­ting the spine and ner­vous sys­tem work­ing well.”

The Gen­tle Chi­ro­prac­tor Co Ltd is at 57 St Johns Rd, Mead­ow­bank. Call them on 521-5811 for your ap­point­ment. They look for­ward to help­ing you.
