Martin Press

Martin Press

Martin Press was born and bred in Lower Hutt, Wellington. He grew up with chiropractic, and many of his family friends are chiropractors. Martin always wanted to do something in health from an early age. He studied tertiary education at Dunedin University then moved to Royal Melbourne Institute Technology (RMIT) in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. There Martin completed his Chiropractic Degree (B.APP.Sc(Chiro)), graduating in 1986. Martin was a locum for a few years then brought the Lower Hutt practice off Stefan Pallister. The practice is the oldest in Lower Hutt and was previously owned by Cyril Phelps. We moved to our present location in 1993, and Hutt Chiropractic Centre was incorporated into the Lower Hutt Chiropractic Clinic in 2003.

Martin enjoys treating all conditions, but especially enjoys treating children/babies and sports injuries as he has a passion for golf and rugby.

About Us
Most people go and see a chiropractor when they are in pain or discomfort and in the mistaken belief they have put something out of place or something is pressing on a nerve.  What they do not realise is spinal joints react in the same way as other joints when sprained.  Like a sprained ankle there is inflammation which causes irritation to the tissues surrounding these joints including the nervous system and as this inflammation decreases so does the pain.  But the muscle damage, ligmentous damage remains and the spinal joints remain unstable.
 
From a practitioner’s point of view getting rid of the client’s pain is only the first stage of rehabilitation.  After this the chiropractor looks at the full function of the joints involved and the stability of the muscles and surrounding tissues.
