They see the benefit in not only training hard but keeping their body at optimum ability to ensure they can always get the best from it. You don’t need to be performing at this level of sport to see the benefits a chiropractor can make in your life to ensure your body is working at its peak. I provide physical solutions including adjustments, exercises, stretches and muscle therapy – to readjust the body or help it heal from conditions that are physical in origin. These can include problems such as back pain, muscle spasms, headaches and poor posture. What you may not know is that it is also completely appropriate to receive chiropractic care even though you may not have symptoms. Unlike standard medical doctors who you visit when you have symptoms that need to be treated, chiropractors offer adjustments to improve spinal alignment and overall wellbeing – and can prevent the pain or other symptoms even starting. Going to a chiropractor is much the same as going to the dentist or gym or even leading a healthy life – it prevents problems from reaching critical stage where you can become incapacitated and as long as you keep up with regular visits, then you continue to enjoy the benefits of a life feeling well. I have been providing Chiropractic Care for patients for more than 15 years of and over that time I have gained outstanding results for my patients. These people have come to me for a variety of reasons, here are just some of them. Suffering illness,discomfort or pain These symptoms are signs of dysfunction in your body. This is a important time to remove nerve interference and irritation to ensure your spine functions optimally and symptoms are alleviated. 5 Warning Signs Accident or trauma Car or bike accidents and falls can cause severe spinal stress and subluxations If not attended to these can cause or contribute to health problems later in life. Active exercise/sport Chiropractic care gives you an edge. Many professional athletes and sportspeople seek regular chiropractic care to ensure they are working at their optimum. Pregnancy/Childbirth/Infant caring The hormonal and physical changes in pregnancy create spinal stress. The birth process can be traumatic for both mother and baby, and both may require care following delivery. Caring for a baby or infant can contribute to neck and/or back pain ie: position of mother during breast feeding and bending to pick up baby.

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 22 2016 13 News Pilot’s war exploits in print • By Fraser Walker-Pearce PILOTING Lancaster bombers and losing two brothers in World War 2 are a few of the stories in a book about two Selwyn residents’ father. THe stories of Barrie and Kevin Mallon’s father Bill in World War 2 were published recently on the other side of the world. THe late Bill Mallon’s exploits for the Allies in the United Kingdom, and training exercises in Canada and the United States, have been published by English author Vic Jay, whose father served alongside Mr Mallon in World War 2. Retired teacher Mr Jay’s book The Mallon Crew covers the story of his own father Bob Jay, a flight engineer in the No 75 New Zealand Squadron, whose crew included pilot Bill Mallon. Barrie, a Lincoln resident, and Kevin, from Rolleston, grew up in Gisborne and New Plymouth in the 1950s, just years after their father returned from serving in the war with the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Kevin Mallon said he fondly remembers sitting in the cockpit of a Lancaster bomber, the same type of plane as the one his father flew in, about 10 years ago FINAL MISSION: Lancaster AA-W on its final mission heading to Bad Oldesloe in Germany on April 24, 1945. Inside the cockpit is Bill Mallon (right) and Bob Jay. ​ with his father. It was during a visit to the Museum of Transport and Technology in Auckland. Mr Jay said his book is about a small group of unremarkable men “thrown together briefly” during the last months of the war and the way their stories have unfolded 70 years on. As they grew up, the brothers constantly asked their father about his service and his stories. He would tell them tales and take them to air shows across the country as they grew up, which peaked Barrie’s interest in aviation. He works for Air New Zealand engineering and manages spare parts for aircraft. Mr Jay contacted Barrie Mallon in 2012 asking if he was the son of Bill Mallon. After four years of correspondence, they have never met and never spoken on the phone. “I’ve never met Vic, we’ve only emailed throughout the four years. But I asked him recently for his phone number,” he said. Barrie Mallon said Mr Jay at one stage asked why his father had left the war so quickly to get back to New Zealand when the final mission was completed. “After their last mission, no one knew why he left (Europe) so quickly. I explained that he had two brothers . . . killed in the war and he was the [family’s] sole survivor. A petition was put to the New Zealand Government at the time by the local people of New Plymouth to bring him back,” he said. Meetings planned for outlying areas • By Tom Doudney THE DISTRICT council has scheduled about half as many meetings next year, cutting back from two meetings a month to one. The district council will also hold three meetings outside Rolleston, a move previously signalled by Mayor Sam Broughton. Meetings will be held in Lincoln in April, Darfield in June and Leeston in September. The Malvern Community Board will do the same, holding four meetings outside of Darfield next year. They will be in Arthur’s Pass in February, Sheffield in May, Glenroy in August and Lake Coleridge in November. Mr Broughton said the district council meetings in Lincoln, Darfield and Leeston would seek to include items of local importance to each area on the agenda. The reason for cutting back to one meeting a month was because with two meetings a month, many of the agendas had not been very full. “To make better use of councillor time, we decided to have monthly meetings,” Mr Broughton said.
