Chiropractors with guns ... be afraid!

Chiropractors with guns ... be afraid!

An interesting piece of training on Saturday 12th September. Chiropractors were given the opportunity  to try their hand at clay pigeon shooting and then take part in a discussion about the sorts of injuries seen among people who use guns for sport or work.

As you can imagine, shooting folk tend to get a lot of neck and shoulder problems – particularly when using guns with heavy recoil. Many people put up with these aches and pains because they don’t realise that anything can be done about them – but it’s always worth discussing them with a chiropractor or other professional as such conditions can often be improved or managed.

A group of us spent a pleasant afternoon trying to shoot clays flying in a variety of trajectories – ranging from the merely challenging to the downright impossible. We even had a little competition to see which of us novices could hit the most clays – modesty forbids me from reporting the result.

All the people in these pictures are trained professionals – though clearly not where guns are concerned!
