Miracles do Happen!

I never knew what I wanted to do when I left school at 18. I had an inexhaustible passion for learning about the structure and workings of the human body, which led me to Glasgow University to gain an honors degree in physiology and neuroscience. I hoped to find a career that would satisfy my craving for knowledge and desire to help people. During my final year there I met a very charismatic man at a conference who believed he was part of the most rewarding profession in the world. He claimed he saw miracles in his practice every day. He was a chiropractor.

I was Skeptical

I have to admit, I was skeptical at first, but he caught my interest. He invited me to spend a day with him at his practice. His first patient of the morning was a woman, in her early 30s. Her husband carried her through the clinic doors into his office. She hadn’t been able to bear her own weight for 8 months, since the birth of their twin girls. Her legs gave way every time and her back pain was excruciating. She was crying. I was shocked.

After talking to her and examining her, the chiropractor told her what her problem was and how he was going to treat her. He adjusted 3 joints in her lower back and asked her to stand up and come back in 3 days. She stood up and walked out without any support. Her journey to recovery had begun.

Chiropractic Education

That’s all it took. I knew chiropractic was the profession for me. I finished my degree in Glasgow and enrolled to study chiropractic at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, Dorset. 4 years later I graduated with my Doctorate in chiropractic and I’ve never looked back.

Chiropractic is a great profession. The ability to provide relief to someone in pain is a great reward. Even more rewarding is seeing people leave my practice healthier, happier, and able to do all the things they enjoy in life – be that sleeping better, playing with their children, getting back to their favorite sport, or simply getting back to work.

Away from Shetland Chiropractic

I now live in Wadbister with my son Aaron. He’s had regular chiropractic care since he was 4-hours old! He has never needed an antibiotic, begs me for his fish oils in the morning and has more energy than a jack russell puppy!

So, welcome to chiropractic and our website. I hope it informs you, inspires you, and even entertains you a little. I’ll look forward to welcoming you to Shetland Chiropractic .
