Don Masson Talks Chiropractic

Don is an ex professional footballer, having turned out for Notts County, QPR and Scotland (at two world cups) amongst other teams, during the 70s and early 80s. He first came across chiropractic when playing in the North American Soccer League at the twilight of his career, and noted that Americans seemed to see chiropractors as a matter of routine, unlike in the UK. He first visited a chiropractor in the UK years later, in 2006, following a hip replacement. It wasn't the hip per se that was causing him problems, but his right shoulder, thanks to his recommencing playing tennis. His aim was clear: he wanted to increase his activity levels and maintain an active lifestyle for as long as he possibly could.

He continued, and still does continue to be active: Don plays tennis at over 65s county level, does DIY, gardening, and looks after the local churchyard all by himself.

On starting chiropractic care, Don noticed immediate help with his shoulder problem, and also noticed an improvement more generally to his quality of life. Don was used to having a fairly routine fitness and health regime from his days playing football at the very highest level. He decided very quickly that, just as he had witnessed all those years ago in America, that he would continue his chiropractic care in a more maintenance format. Don goes every month to his chiropractor and to quote Don "I will do so for the rest of my life."
