Hello and thanks for visiting Goolwa chiropractic and health matters. A little back ground about me. Chiropractic first came to my attention after seeing the amazing benefits it offered my grandfather. In constant pain, he was given little hope of recovery by his GP and consigned to a life on pain medication drugs. He experienced minimal pain relief and many detrimental effects from medication.
But Chiropractic was a revelation for him in terms of pain relief and improving his overall health.
Later my father used an animal chiropractor to treat and maintain his racehorse. The horse's performance and temperament improved drastically under chiropractic care. I was intrigued. These improvements could not be attributed to the power of suggestion and placebo.
Having grown up in Papua New Guinea and later on a farm near Strathalbyn I had a very active sporting childhood eating only organic food grown by the villagers in the mountains or on our farm respectively. So for me it was a natural progression to gravitate toward the health sciences. Initially I enrolled in physiotherapy but later changed to Chiropractic. My passion was for health and wellness.
It was a great decision. I am a natural skeptic and treating symptoms alone seemed inadequate. A good analogy I like to use is: Imagine if fish washed up on Goolwa beach with diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity for example... would it make sense to build fish hospitals and throw medication into the water? It seems absurd doesn't it? To me addressing the cause and keeping people out of hospital makes more sense. Indeed there is a growing realisation and evidence that this is the way forward.
Chiropractic is evidenced based but it also recognises the holistic nature of the human body. The mind/body interconnectedness. The concept of eating well, moving well, thinking well..and sleeping well. Staying healthy rather than treating symptoms ( sick care) is not only much more cost effective, it empowers us all to take control of our future health.
As a profession Chiropractic has been wonderful for me in many ways. I have worked in Australasia Europe Africa but it's the journey of understanding that enthrals me the most. More recently I have been delving into functional neurology and sympathetic dominance specifically. I know this will drastically help so many of you.
