Chiropractic is a branch of medical science which deals with the central nervous system and the spine. A misaligned spine can act as the catalyst for many other problems in the body, and apart from causing pain, is often the cause of conditions such as impaired immune function, hormonal imbalances, and reduced brain function. Chiropractic treatments can assist people suffering from back/neck pain, muscle tightness, sciatica, bulging discs, arthritis, headaches, postural imbalances, stress, lack of energy, immune disorders and hormonal imbalances. Dr. Gina Variath Perera, a Sri Lankan currently residing in Auckland, New Zealand, graduated as a chiropractor from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2009 with a doctorate in Chiropractic and possesses a Chiropractic Board Annual Practising Certificate. Dr. Gina is the first and only practicing chiropractor in Sri Lanka. She is presently dividing time between her Auckland (New Zealand) and Colombo practices, and will be available for consultations from 4 July to 17 July 2013. Chiropractic’s treat various conditions in adults such as sciatica, disc bulges, arthritis, headaches, postural imbalances and stress to name a few. Dr. Gina also treats kids, postural changes, colic, bed wetting, lack of energy etc. Chiropractic is not only about back pain, neck pain, and headaches or arthritis, tight muscles and posture. It is about optimal function. It is about balance within the body. It is about a functioning nervous system and a functioning body. It will lead to improved motion, immune function, brain function, hormone balance, posture. It will allow various symptoms to disappear while your body’s balance and harmony are restored. Commenting on her upcoming visit to Sri Lanka, Dr. Gina Perera said: “My main focus is on allowing the body to function optimally through chiropractic care, nutrition and exercise which would assist an initial diagnosis of a particular condition at a consultation. My other areas of expertise include Radiology and the interpretation of X-Rays and MRIs. “I feel that it is imperative to give back to our fellow Sri Lankans what I have to offer, which will be beneficial to their lifestyles. Given the hectic pace of life today, a busy executive, a housewife with her head full, a practicing athlete or a school child could benefit through chiropractic guidance and treatment to optimise their productivity levels. As a qualified and experienced chiropractor in New Zealand, I have been exposed to new age discoveries in the medical world and look forward to imparting my learning’s to make everyone’s day to day life better.”
