LUKE Bilich is a chiropractor who wants to make a difference in life.
He recently returned from a trip to India with other health practitioners where they worked with the “the untouchables” and helped them overcome problems with their backs and other related conditions.
Working in West Bengal, Mr Bilich and other chiropractors landed in the town of Siliguri and also travelled to other smaller outreach clinics at Taipoo 7, Belgachi and Goomgooma .
He said the results were very rewarding.
“This population is the poorest of the poor,” he said.
“I will never forget providing treatment to one woman in particular who was freed from her excruciating migraines and was finally able to work again, which she had not been able to do for 10 years.”
Mr Bilich also worked in East Timor in a not-for-profit capacity helping local people in the villages.
“I was part of the Kalamunda Leavers Timor-Leste organisation for three consecutive years and helped to run the program.
“We built schools, dug trenches and laid piping to provide villages with fresh drinking water and taught English.”
An award-winning practitioner, Mr Bilich, has opened a new practice in High Wycombe and said he is passionate about his local community.
“Everything we do is devoted to helping clients achieve optimum health and be at their best in the community,” he said.
“We want to help as many people as we can because chiropractic is the best-kept secret in healthcare.
“It is sometimes seen as the ‘last resort’ and this is usually because people don’t know what chiropractors do.
“I always knew I wanted to do something health related as an adolescent, but I never knew exactly what. I stumbled upon chiropractic health care from a young age, and was immediately impressed by the thorough examinations and how it related to the complexity of the human body.
“I really loved the fact that you could make such an incredible difference, in such a short period of time, with the use of just your hands.”
The results he achieves with his clients are his greatest motivator each day.
“Making changes to a client’s overall health, and the roll-on effect it has on their everyday life is a rewarding area to work in.”
