In my early 20’s I hurt my back after an accident, also breaking my right clavicle (collar bone). The result of the accident created an imbalance in my spine which caused regular back spasms, with my back eventually deteriorating – leaving me with numbness in my right leg. After being treated by a chiropractor in 1992, this left me with the burning ambition to become a chiropractor – to help people reduce their pain, plus restore their quality of life. This ambition never left me, which I eventually fulfilled 25 years later qualifying as a McTimoney Chiropractor in 2015.
As part of my ongoing Continual Professional Development after qualifying as a chiropractor, I later trained in Advanced Biostructural Correction™(ABC), after receiving a short course of treatment from a fellow chiropractor who I had actually trained with at the McTimoney College, as my posture had changed noticeably after just two treatments plus after years of being in pain, the pain had reduced significantly, I could now walk without the burning sensation in my leg, which usually came on after twenty minutes .I am now more upright, yet without any additional effort. My posture had been slowly deteriorating through bad habits, and years of sitting slumped over at the computer. I have changed not only how I sit, but also how I stand and even how I sleep. Whilst Advanced Biostructural Correction™ is changing my posture for the better, there is still a way to go, a life time of bad habits doesn’t fix itself overnight, but I certainly see the benefits of how my posture is improving over time. Plus I now spend my days bent over a treatment couch, rather than a desk!
I am passionate about Chiropractic and ABC, as both have helped me, leading me to want to help other people become as mobile as they possible can, and live the lives they deserve, as pain free as possible.
I have also been attending Alexander Technique classes for over three years now, and will often discuss the principles of this technique with people – we often create rules for themselves by doing things like hunching our shoulders shoulders, and we can all learn how to let this go.
i enjoy going to the Gym, and am passionate about weights, but love family life including walking, reading and drawing.
I also like to laugh. I had a patient dancing in the clinic the other day much to my amusement. I loved it!
