Meet Dr David Smith (Chiropractor)

Getting Natural Help For Sleep, Pain and More

Essential Family Chiropractic Chiropractor, David Smith

Dr. David Smith, DC

In 1999, David Smith was doing practical work for a technology degree. A severe back strain drove him to see a chiropractor for the first time, and it changed the course of his life.

He didn’t enjoy what he was studying and saw how much his chiropractor loved what he did.  David began to experience firsthand the incredible results of chiropractic. ‘’I noticed my memory and concentration improved. I was achieving top grades with far less stress and study. I slept soundly, my energy and productivity improved and I rarely got sick. I was amazed that something so simple worked so effectively.”

Taking his own positive experience as a sign, David finished his studies at Massey University and then entered New Zealand College of Chiropractic in Auckland.

Understanding The Body’s Abilities

The philosophy of chiropractic made perfect sense to David. ‘’Our bodies want to be healthy. When the nervous system, the body’s control centre, is working as it should, we can maintain and improve our health and enjoyment of life.”

He found it appealing that chiropractors could naturally and safely help the body function better by removing any interference with the nerve pathways rather than by suppressing the body’s warning signals with medication.

David enjoys seeing people’s physical performance and quality of life improve, their pain levels decrease and their ability to stay active enhanced and prolonged – all without drugs or resorting to surgery.

Four Legged Patients

Humans aren’t Dr David’s only patients. Surprisingly, he’s frequently adjusted show dogs that often earn top honours. The owners believe that chiropractic care plays a major role in their dog’s performance by increasing alertness and agility.

Enjoying Life In Hamilton

A resident of our beautiful community, David enjoys spending time with his family and friends. In his spare time, you’ll often find him indulging his love of the road with recreational motorcycle and driving trips. In addition to seeing a chiropractor himself, daily meditation helps him get rid of tension and better his physical and mental health.
