The Resilience of Body
“What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god – the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!”
For over 30 years, I have practiced as a qualified chiropractor here in Australia. During this time, I have witnessed countless transformations. People come into the practice with grimaces of pain, under a cloud of stress stemming from their conditions and walk out with smiles on their faces. And this is not just a temporary alleviation, these people are on their way to a pain-free existence and increased vigour and mobility.
Then, out of the blue, I experienced the devastating effects of a life-threatening illness myself. At one point, I was told I’d never be able to work again. This was one of the lowest points of my entire life. Happily, thanks to some excellent medical treatments and a long period of recovery, I have regained my physical health. Consequently, I have been able to get back to work – not working all the hours God sends, but happy to be back in the practice and able to make a difference. My personal experiences also reinforced another important element in the Mind & Body approach: to recommend other health professionals as and when appropriate.
At Mind & Body, we are completely clear about our position in the world of health professionals. We focus on musculoskeletal problems and the pain and debilitation they can cause. We work closely with other professionals in a variety of disciplines. We have a network of like-minded practitioners to whom we refer our patients as appropriate. Chiropractic is complementary to traditional medical science not competitive. Working with the natural resilience of the human body, we can work wonders.
