Chiropractic Offered everything I was Looking For

I was initially introduced to Chiropractic by a distant relation whilst I was completing my Engineering degree in Bristol. At that stage I was a naïve 19 year old struggling to find a direction in life. Well chiropractic offered every thing that I was looking for in a career. From that moment I didn’t look back.

My Chiropractic Education

I attended the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth. Up until fairly recently the AECC was the only Chiropractic College in Europe. Since I graduated in 1995 I have devoted 100’s of hours in post graduate work in honing my chiropractic skills. I am Advanced proficiency rated in Activator Methods and am now a qualified Instructor and teach this remarkable technique to my colleagues. For a number of years I was also the European Regional Director for Activator Methods International.

At Kilworth Chiropractic Clinic we strive to offer a safe, affordable and a highly effective alternative to better healthcare. Whilst Medicine is fantastic at emergency life saving interventions, when it comes to providing better health it is sorely lacking. Quite simply you cannot produce better health by taking pills. They may make you feel better but they will never ever make your body function better! So by ensuring that your spine is functioning at its optimal level we can help your nervous function better and subsequently help your body adapt better to life’s challenges. For us the most satisfying part of our work is seeing the remarkable changes in people as their spines and their health improve. Pain and sickness are debilitating and chiropractic can so often be the answer. Take for example a recent case in the office; this was a 2 year girl who had been plagued with ear infections since she was 5 months old. Already in her short life she had been subjected to 2 lots of surgery and not a month had gone by without antibiotics. That was until she came to our office, 6 months later she is beginning to lead a normal and healthy life free of pills and grommets. This amazing case is just one of 1000’s.

My beautiful daughters, Anna and Isabel.

I am very happily married to Antoinette and we have 4 gorgeous children: Anna, Isabel, Harry and Adam and I cannot forget our golden retriever Max! We try to be very active and love the outdoor life. We enjoy hiking and I am a triathlon enthusiast! Thus far I have completed two long distance Ironman triathlons – a 2.4mile swim, a 112mile cycle followed by a marathon!!!

We also love cooking and it is one of my passions that I love sharing with the kids. There is nothing so rewarding than seeing the kids with flour up to their necks!! Despite the mess I feel it is such an integral part of growing up to teach the kids how to eat more healthily!

Health is a Relatively Simple Concept!

As Gandhi once said “You must be the change you wish to see in the world”. Well I passionately believe that Health is a relatively simple concept; it just involves making wiser lifestyle choices: we need to move better (which definitely includes your spines), we need to eat healthier foods and we need to reduce mental stress. As a family that is exactly what we try to do, we only ever eat home cooked food, we take regular exercise and we are all adjusted regularly.

At this stage in their lives none of our children have ever had need of an antibiotic nor have they been vaccinated. I appreciate the emotive nature of the vaccination issue but for us there is absolutely no proof what so ever that a vaccinated child is healthier than a non vaccinated child. For us it comes back to the premise of lifestyle choices, the healthier the choices the better.
