Chandra Ricks MChiro
My clinical practice offers a mixture of chiropractic manipulation, soft tissue work and indivudually tailored exercises to reduce your pain and increase your mobility. I also teach stress and pain management techniques to help you increase your control over your health and well-being.
My interest in healthcare began after I was in an accident which left me with a prolonged back pain and reduced mobility. Yoga helped me to overcome my injury and began my passion for “physical medicine.” To further this, I qualified as a Yoga Instructor focusing on Vinyasa Flow Yoga which emphasises movement for relaxation and health.
My continued thirst for knowledge led me to complete an Integrated Undergraduate Masters Degree in Chiropractic (MChiro) from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic. The course focused extensively on the anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the body as well as providing an extensive understanding of the various pathologies and how they would present within my patients.
I also gained advanced qualifications in Massage and Graston Technique. These techniques, which focus on reducing muscle pain and spasm, are enormously helpful in assisting pain relief for my patients coming to me in acute pain.
Now, in addition to working with my patients, I am also a Senior Lecturer at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in both Abindgon and Manchester teaching Neuroscience, Clinical Neurology, General Medicine as well as a variety of Technique classes.
Because I have personal experience with chronic pain and its immense impact on your life, I am passionate about delivering a personal treatment plan which will not only reduce your symptoms, but also address the root cause of your problem to try to prevent or reduce reoccurance in the future.
