Anna attended a four year full-time undergraduate course at the University of Glamorgan Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, graduating in 2002 with a First Class Honours degree and winning the coveted prize for academic achievement.
Anna is passionate about health, healing and chiropractic. Since graduating she has enthusiastically continued her education across a range of health-related topics including nutrition, pain management, functional neurology, functional muscle testing, psychology, energy medicine, kinesiotaping, nerve flossing and other post-graduate chiropractic techniques; she is committed to life-long learning. Equilibrium is a training practice under the Royal College of Chiropractors Graduate Training Scheme and Anna has mentored several graduates through their challenging first year as new Chiropractors.
She has a particular interest in working with athletes and sports people and sees many professional and semi-professional sports-people in clinic. She loves their commitment and the way they are so in tune with the changes that chiropractic can make. She also see a lot of weekend warriors! Performance counts for sport and optimising performance is one of the aims of chiropractic adjustments.
She has a large tool-kit of therapeutic approaches that include diversified technique, cranial adjusting, sacro-occipital technique (SOT), neuro-muscular energy techniques, activator adjusting, upper-cervical specific adjusting, Network Spinal Analysis (NSA), toggle technique and functional muscle testing. She is trained to use acupuncture for pain relief, to fit orthotics and to apply kinesio-tape to help recovery from injuries. She has also trained to support health with dietary changes and nutritional supplements.
Anna had congenital hip dysplasia, which was not found in time to correct it whilst she was an infant. As a result, she underwent hip replacement surgery at the age of 40 after living with severe pain for years. Chiropractic proved essential in managing her condition and pain both before and after surgery. This experience has given her great insight and empathy for the constant pain of arthritic conditions and back pain.
Anna is also a graduate of the International Academy of Veterinary Chiropractic. This training is considered to be the gold standard for the use of chiropractic techniques on animals and Anna regularly sees dogs, horses and even cattle for chiropractic care.
Anna is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and is a member of the Royal College of Chiropractors and the Scottish Chiropractic Association (SCA). She is a registered consultant with most major insurance companies. Are you registered with Bupa or AXA-PPP? We are currently unable to accept you into care - more information here.
