Dr Dean Carter, Chiropractor, Wellness Strategist

 F1730D18-CC32-41AF-B834-8D6E1481E101“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his or her patients in the care of the human frame, in proper diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

Thomas A Edison


Dr. Dean Carter’s approach is raw and natural, “you were born to be amazing, the power that made your body heals your body”. His unique view of health is the underpinning foundation of the Living Chiropractic and Wellness. The impact of losing many family members to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer was the main influence for Dean to take on health science and lifestyle and wellness care as a way of life and vocation.

He trained first as a massage therapist specializing in Polynesian healing systems, sports and deep tissue and practiced full time for seven years. The challenge of higher education then pointed the path to the Auckland University of Technology to complete a diploma of science and the New Zealand College of Chiropractic where he graduated after the six year full time course as a Bachelor of Chiropractic.

Dr.Deans journey into chiropractic was also inspired by major impact on his own health and wellbeing. As a 10 year old he was badly injured multiple times riding motocross bikes and playing contact sports and by the age of 17 years old was suffering poor health with symptoms of daily chronic low back pain with sciatica, and regular neck pain with headaches. The next 15 years was a monotonous unhealthy experience through the health system using countless medications for pain and inflammation, receiving hundreds of hours with physiotherapists, massage therapists and osteopaths with little result, his journey finally resolved with an intensive schedule of chiropractic care with wellness strategies that changed his life forever.

Dr.Dean Carter has experience in chiropractic and wellness for families, new-born babies, mature citizens, amateur sports and high performance athletes.

Dr Dean recognises the best choice to move forward into optimal health and wellbeing is by ‘living in wellness’.
