Chiropractic

I came to Chiropractic following a neck injury in my early 20s. Whilst undergoing treatment I was astonished at how much my chiropractor knew about what I did in and out of work simply by looking at how my body worked. It sparked an interest and I qualified from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in December 2016 and I am a GCC Registered Chiropractor. I am also a membver of the McTimoney Chiropractic Association (MCA) and Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC).

Working With Animals

I have lived alongside animals all my life and my love for them has grown as I have. As I have got older, I have become more aware of the importance of biomechanics and the negative effect imbalances can have on the body whether it be human or animal.

In 2017 I went on to undertake postgraduate training and qualified as a Veterinary Chiropractor. I am registered with the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP) and I am also a member of the British Veterinary Chiropractic Association (BVCA), the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association (IVCA) and Royal College of Chiropractors (Animal Faculty).

I love all animals, but I have a particular passion for sighthounds and exotics, having grown up with whippets and am now a keen ferret keeper!

Horse Riding

As both a UK registered (human) Chiropractor and Veterinary Chiropractor, I understand not only the biomechanics of a rider but also of the horse and how they work together. To further increase my understanding of horse and rider biomechanics, I have spent time with Russell Guire of Centaur Biomechanics considering the effects of rider asymmetry on the welfare and performance of the horse and undertaken training with Andy Thomas of Event Physio, High-Performance Human Science Sports Medicine Advisor to both the GB and US Equestrian Teams furthering my understanding of imbalances and weaknesses in equestrian riders.
