How chi­ro­prac­tic care can im­prove your life

Central Leader - - News -

When the av­er­age per­son thinks about chi­ro­prac­tic, chances are they don’t un­der­stand what it is.

More of­ten than not, peo­ple go to chi­ro­prac­tor for the first time for re­lief from back or neck pain.

But what many don’t re­alise is that they need not have a spe­cific com­plaint to greatly ben­e­fit from a visit.

“Chi­ro­prac­tic care is suit­able for every­one from in­fants to the el­derly,” says Dr Trevor Har­brow of Har­brow Fam­ily Chi­ro­prac­tic, a fam­ily-friendly, home­based prac­tice that re­cently opened in St He­liers.

“In ad­di­tion to help­ing with spe­cific prob­lems, chi­ro­prac­tic care is also a great tool for en­hanc- ing your body’s over­all health and well­be­ing. If you’ve got a spine you can ben­e­fit from it,” he says.

“It’s a safe and ef­fec­tive form of health­care that in­volves analysing and ad­just­ing ar­eas of the spine to re­move nerve in­ter­fer­ence, al­low­ing it to func­tion and per­form to its full po­ten­tial. When we do this it’s of­ten sur­pris­ing how much bet­ter peo­ple feel and func­tion.”

Trevor’s in­ter­est in chi­ro­prac­tic be­gan at age 15 af­ter his fa­ther de­vel­oped chronic back pain.

“He’d get a sear­ing pain down his leg that would be so bad it would cause him to drop to his stom­ach. He was given two op­tions – to sell his farm or for me to leave school at 15 and take over. Nei­ther op­tion was par­tic­u­larly ap­peal­ing, so as a last re­sort he went to see a chi­ro­prac­tor who sorted the prob­lem, al­low­ing him to keep work­ing.”

As well as pro­vid­ing pain re­lief, chi­ro­prac­tic care can also as­sist with com­mon child­hood dis­or­ders, stress-re­lated prob­lems, rais­ing en­ergy lev­els, im­prov­ing pos­ture, gain­ing bet­ter sleep and aid­ing ath­letic per­for­mance – some­thing that Trevor, who’s also a mar­tial arts en­thu­si­ast, can vouch for.

Phone 585-2114 and make an ap­point­ment to­day.

You’ll find Har­brow Fam­ily Chi­ro­prac­tic at 114 Long Drive, St He­liers.
