Mark started experiencing lower back pain and stiffness from the age of seven, he tried many types of treatments but none seemed to give me any relief. When he was twelve years old an Orthopaedic consultant advised him to "learn to live with it" and that in the future he would have to undergo hip surgery.
At 13, his family moved to the United States where his parents first heard about chiropractic treatment. He and his family decided to investigate the matter and after the first treatment his back pain disappeared. It was immediately following this treatment that Mark decided that he would become a chiropractor.
In 2002 Mark graduated from the Anglo- European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth with an MSc in Chiropractic Sciences.
For 10 years Mark has run clinics that treat all types of pain: headaches, back pain, neck pain .. and more. Over the years, the feeling grew in him that there was additional knowledge that would help to improve the accuracy of diagnosis and long- term effectiveness of care.
After investigating the matter, Mark was exposed to Functional Neurology. Functional Neurology gives him a much deeper understanding of the functioning of the nervous system with particular emphasis on the control of posture, balance, coordination and movement.
This enables Mark to clearly identify the root of the problem and customise a care plan that is tailored to each patient. This provides optimum results and this is the method that Mark has been utilising since 2012.
Whether patients want to get rid of pain, prevent future problems or improve athletic performance, with Mark's experience and knowledge he loves helping to achieve the patients' health goals.
