A couple from the New Farm Chiro­practor Clinic in Australia are back in Savusavu providing free servic­es.

Doctor David Leach and his wife, Beth Leach, who have travelled around the world providing chiropractic treatment, said this was their sixth year in Savusavu. They would continue their free service delivery to make a difference. Dr Leach and his wife operate a chiropractor clinic in Brisbane.

“Every time we come to Savusavu to pro­vide treatment it is very rewarding to us es­pecially when we see the kind of difference we make in patients’ lives,” he said.

This year their children are helping with the clinic. Kitty Leach, 14, records patient’s details and producing a data base for future visits. Harvey Leach, 12, helps with patient education, post treatment advice and gen­eral patient flow in the clinic.

Mrs Leach concentrates on patient educa­tion about chiropractic and general health education on topics like diabetes, stroke, healthy diet, exercise, and hygiene particu­larly in relation to boils.

“When we came in 2013 we saw there was a need for this valuable service and so we have been coming twice in a year to Savusa­vu,” Dr Leach said.

“Moreover, some patients require more than one treatment so that is why we sched­uled every six months visit. We love Fiji particularly Savusavu as it is a beautiful place with beautiful people.

“I am accompanied by my wife, children and Doctor Abigail James who work with us at the clinic.”

“The treatment we provide is totally free and we fund this trip by ourselves,” he said.

Patients who came with back problems, pain on the neck, knees, shoulders, ankles and other joints ware mostly farmers and sports personnel, especially rugby players.

“I use Gonstead method, checking the alignment of bones, provide treatment for repair and emphasise on manual therapy including adjustment and manipulation with particular focus on joint dysfunction,” he said.

The last free clinic will be held on Friday.
