“I started having chiropractic care whilst athletics training in Canada and was amazed I stayed injury free for once and was able to come off daily painkillers.!’’ Jo likens it to having a high performance cars wheels balanced. “My chiropractor was the only one who concentrated on aligning me as a whole, before that I had been like an unaligned high performance car, continually having certain tires replaced. In addition i had a few chronic injuries which the conventional path could not sort out for me.”
