Dr Dean Carter, (B.Chiro) MNZCA, Chiropractor, Director

“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's approach to health and life philosophy is holistic, vitalistic and natural. His unique view of health is the underpinning foundation of Living Chiropractic & Wellness. Dr Dean believes in taking the time to get to the core issue of health problems. He sets out to understand the contributing factors of his patients health concerns, rather than simply dealing with their symptoms. The impact of losing many family members to lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer was the main influence for him to study health sciences, lifestyle and wellness care as a way of life and vocation.

Dr Dean has twenty years of experience in wellness care and 15 years in chiropractic. He has a reputation for excellence and provides the people of Franklin with state-of-the-art family wellness care. He is inspired to help families, new-born babies and children, mature citizens, amateur and high performance athletes. Dr Dean recognises the best choice to move forward into optimal health is by ‘Living in Wellness’. Children and adults alike feel nurtured in his warm and friendly centre.

Born and raised in the rural town of Te Kuiti, Dr Dean has always enjoyed the outdoors. Fishing, mountain biking, hiking and yoga are some of the main activities Dr Dean makes time for in his life. He believes keeping active in the things you love is the key to creating a full life.

Practicing as a Chiropractor in Pukekohe for the last 15 years, Dr Dean understands the importance of his practice members keeping active. He empowers them to exercise, maintain postural awareness, and to stretch every day. “Alongside chiropractic care, strengthening the body, mind and soul creates a healthy nervous system and prepares you for physical, emotional and chemical stresses we face everyday”.
