Chiropractic – more than just for injuries

Nelson Chiropractic services for back pain - Peter Hillier

Most people think about chiropractors when they have hurt themselves – like when they have a fall or lift incorrectly.

Chiropractic does a great job of resolving those injuries – insurance data indicates that chiropractors often get their patients back to work faster than other health professions.

But there is more to chiropractic than injury treatment. 

For the last 20 years there has been a chiropractor on the medical team of the New Zealand Olympic and Commonwealth Games teams.  This came about because the athletes requested that a chiropractor be available.  They understood that chiropractic care not only helped them recover from injuries, but had the potential to improve performance, which is critical for top-level athletes.  A small percentage improvement in performance can mean the difference between winning a medal or not.

Improved performance is not just the concern of elite athletes – we all need improved performance to enable us to pursue our work, sports, hobbies and interests.

So - to help your body achieve better, consider seeking chiropractic care.
