Wellington Chiropractor: Dr Brent Lindsay

A chance encounter with Chiropractic

My introduction to Chiropractic, like most people, was by chance. My girlfriend (now my wife) was seeing a Chiropractor for general health and spinal function. Coming from a medical background this intrigued me and of course I was quite sceptical, but after talking to the Chiropractor and reading about Chiropractic realised the unique approach this profession has toward health and well-being.

I attended Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA. At that time there were no Chiropractic schools in the Southern Hemisphere. I was fortunate enough to have attended Chiropractic Seminars featuring two well-known Chiropractors of the time, Joe Flesia and Guy Riekman, who were teaching at Sherman College – I was impressed with their approach and decided to attend this school.

Looking beyond pain relief to find optimal health

Most people consult our office because they have an ache or pain – our first objective is to provide relief and corrective care and patients soon come to realise that caring for your spine goes further than just alleviating a sore back. I attempt to impress on patients that they are responsible for their own health and that we, as Chiropractors, play an important role in attaining optimal health. What we eat, exercise, mental attitude and environmental factors all play an important role. Chiropractors ensure normal spinal function is maintained and the nervous system is performing at its best.

To see a patient reaching their health goals is satisfying – seeing those changes in personality and appearance (posture). Helping patients to understand that health comes from the inside/out rather that the outside/in. The most obvious and common example of this is seeing patients released from the dependence on drugs and their adverse side effects.
