Who is Hands for Heroes - Free Chiropractic Care for War Veterans?
"Hands for Heroes - Free Chiropractic Care for War Veterans" is a grass roots organisation which was set up by an ex-military engineer turned Chiropractic Practice manager Craig Hindson.
After chiropractic care helped him recover from PTSD after service in 3 war zones - the former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan and Iraq, Craig felt called to signpost other suffering servicemen to chiropractic care.
Despite being told by authoritative medical specialists that his cognitive function would never be the same, after several years of intensive chiropractic care, intense exercise and nutritional shifts he became an author, speaker and in 2016 he qualified as a chiropractic doctor.
One of Craig's proudest achievements was that on 11 /11/11, 170 chiropractic offices across the UK were offering - Free Chiropractic Care for War Veterans.
Why does Hands for Heroes exist?
The movement only exists because of 2 reasons:
Reason 1. The demand of war veterans for an impartial non-judgemental and more effective and way of managing mental, physical and emotional trauma which is completely divorced from the military system. Many veterans report being suspicious of the military system which many feel was instrumental in creating their trauma or which failed to to act more effectively to resolve their suffering.
Reason 2. The generosity of currently practising chiropractors who donate their time energy and money PURELY as a gift of service (the chiropractic doctors receive NO payment from the government or the military establishment).
After seeing outstanding results with his own health and the health of other veterans Craig Hindson, now Doctor Craig Hindson left the UK to study to be a chiropractic doctor. He now runs his Chiropractic Office "Loving Life Chiropractic" (but it's a journey not a destination!) in Ottawa Canada.
