Meet Holly

Qualifications: Registered Chiropractor, MChiro, DC, LRCC

I graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (USW) with a distinction in my Masters degree of Chiropractic. I was also delighted to be awarded the best research project, having investigated the management of episodes of low back pain in adults.

I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council and am a member of the British Chiropractic Association and the Royal College of Chiropractors. I pride myself on being guided by the most up to date evidence and NICE clinical guidelines, in order to provide personalised care tailored to every individual.

I enjoy treating a varied caseload of injuries, aches and pains. I have special interests in neck and back pain, BPPV/dizziness and pregnancy care. Most recently, I have trained with APPI to become a Pilates instructor, something I am very excited about and believe will hugely complement my clinical work. 

What is chiropractic? What can a chiropractor treat?

Chiropractic is a regulated healthcare profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system and general health. When chiropractors assess patients, we take physical, emotional and social wellbeing into account. Chiropractors are typically known for treating patients suffering with neck pain, back pain and/or sciatica, but are qualified to assess and treat any musculoskeletal injury, disorder or problem including those of your shoulder, hip, knee, or ankle joints.

What does a typical appointment involve?

The initial consultation starts with a conversation during which I take a thorough case history, that is followed by a physical exam. Then we go through a verbal report of findings where we discuss the working diagnosis, treatment options, and a home exercise plan tailor-made for you. If appropriate, I perform hands-on treatment using a variety of techniques such as soft tissue work, spinal manipulative therapy, assisted stretching, joint mobilisations, dry needling and/or k-taping. I will also give you advice on self management techniques, discuss whether maintenance care may benefit you and endeavour to answer any questions you may have. Follow-up appointments and maintenance care consists of further hands-on treatment, rehab prescription and advice.

About me, outside of the clinic…

Mostly you will find me spending time socialising with my friends and family, or trying any kind of sport, although my main passion is netball. Otherwise, you can find me reading a book or doing a sudoku with a cup of tea and some homemade shortbread! When I have the time, I also love exploring new places and having fun trying/failing at new arts and crafts projects
