Chiropractor, Greater Manchester, Fay Sidebottom

Fay Sidebottom – Doctor of Chiropractic

BSc (Hons), MSc, DC

Growing up on a working family farm, I have always been aware of the need to take an active role in my health and wellbeing. I had never really heard of a Chiropractor until during my A level studies when I undertook some reception work at a Chiropractic clinic. The combination of both learning about Chiropractic, and seeing the obvious benefits to patient’s health was the turning point in my life. I realised that Chiropractic was the perfect career choice I had been looking for. I enrolled and studied at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, where I graduated with distinction and was awarded the European Chiropractors’ Union prize for being the ‘Graduate of the year’.

Since finishing University, I have undertaken further training focusing on Chiropractc care for pregnant women, babies and children. This is an area which holds a particular interest for myself, and I practice a variety of treatment techniques including cranial work and the Webster-Breech Protocol. I have also completed further specific training in dry needling, treating temporomandiublar joint disorders (TMJ) and extremity complaints (shoulders, knees, elbows, wrists etc.). Read more »

Outside of work I have a keen interest in sports and regularly run, cycle and horse ride. Having competed in numerous events including two marathons, several half marathons, fell runs, and long distance cycle rides, I understand the frustration of injuries and the impact they can have on a training schedule. I enjoy working with athletes of all ages and ability to get them performing at the best of their potential. I have successfully treated walkers, runners, cyclists, golfers, rugby players, footballers, horse riders and weight lifters amongst many others. So whether you are training for an iron man or simply want to be able to do the ironing without pain, I aim to get you performing to the top of your game.

Marple is my home town, and I love having the opportunity to help and educate our local community, by offering an alternative choice to simply ‘putting up with’ complaints, or masking symptoms without getting to the underlying cause. Additionally, I believe it is important for patients to take an active role in their own recovery, and will give ongoing advice regarding exercise and nutrition throughout the treatment plan. As a Chiropractor, one of the most satisfying aspects is seeing the difference in the quality of a patient’s life by getting them involved in their own healthcare. So if you have any questions please feel free to give us a call, or get booked in and we can get started on your journey to optimum health.

Chiropractor Greater Manchester, Kathyrn Parkin

Kathryn Parkin – Doctor of Chiropractic

BSc (Hons), MSc, DC

Following a road traffic incident, my path happened to cross with a chiropractor who enlightened me to chiropractic and the benefits that it could offer me. Following this eye opener, I felt a strong desire to help others and, after much deliberation, I opted to return to school and undertake the 5 year long degree in South Wales training at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic.

I certainly found the course to be a challenging one but thankfully never dull! In particular I found fascinating the subjects of neurology as well as that of nutrition.

Having realized for myself the effects that chiropractic care can have, my main aims are not only to enable my patients to feel better but also to help them achieve their own, personal health goals. Having already witnessed so many great success stores, I absolutely love what I do and I feel particularly privileged to be able to do this job. Thanks for visiting our site and I very much look forward to meeting you in person and learning how I can help you take your first step towards better spinal health!

Chiropractor Greater Manchester, Kerry Labuschagne

Kerry Labuschagne – Doctor of Chiropractic

BSc (Hons), MSc, DC

My first experience of chiropractic was when I was 14 years old.  As an amateur swimmer my coach used to get a chiropractor to adjust us before we swam our races.  I became fascinated as to why an adjustment of my spine would make me swim better.  Years later I decided to study chiropractic at the Durban University of Technology.  Since then I have enjoyed furthering my studies in various chiropractic techniques, particularly NeuroImpulse Protocol, which is a gentle technique initially developed for treating babies.  I am also currently studying Functional Neurology with the Carrick Institute.

On a personal note I love being active swimming, participating in triathlons, hiking and going to the gym.  I enjoy good food and feeling healthy.

If you would like to learn more about how chiropractic can help you please give us a call.  I would be more than happy to answer any questions.

Chiropractor Greater Manchester, Clive Sherwood

Clive Sherwood – Doctor of Chiropractic & Physiotherapist

BSc (Hons), MSc, DC

I qualified as a Physiotherapist in 1989, and gained MSc in Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy in 1997. For 12 years I worked as an Extended Scope Physiotherapist for the NHS in a Spinal Diagnostic Clinic in Middlesex – it was during this tenure that I gained my Chiropractic degree, funded in part by the NHS. Throughout my career I have studied numerous post-graduate courses, and also taught and mentored Master’s level Physiotherapy students from several universities.

Physiotherapy is very skilled at approaching a patient’s problem from the Biomedical model, and directing treatments at a particular pathology but stressing function rather than physiology. There is a move to a more biopsychosocial model, allowing for more holistic practice, but this is only slowly gaining ground.

I chose to study Chiropractic because I wanted to deal more with the person with the problem, rather than focussing just on the pathology itself – to become more of a Healer than a Technician. The Chiropractic and Physiotherapy approaches do overlap, but there are distinct differences. Each one has many positive aspects, and numerous treatment methods. I believe I have integrated the techniques into a broad coherent collection, and can therefore choose whichever modality works best for an individual patient to overcome their problems.

I am excited at the opportunity to work alongside Dr Andrew Jackson and his team, and to be mentored by him in the Wellness approach to patient care.

Sports/Orthotics Therapist Greater Manchester, Cornelius Musonda

Cornelius Musonda – Sports/Orthotics Therapist

I was born in Zambia, central Africa and this is where I first began playing squash. My love of the sport increased and I began to play professionally. I have been lucky enough to represent Zambia in many major competitions including the commonwealth games. Unfortunately I suddenly found myself injured and not knowing quite what to do. I’d always had a very keen interest in sports injuries and rehabilitation and it was while researching my own injury that I stumbled upon the idea of studying as a sports therapist. Little did I know that from my own shoulder injury the career that was to shape my life was starting to grow.

In 2006 I became a fully qualified sports therapist. I specialise in deep tissue sports massage, sports injuries and rehabilitation, neck and back pain, muscular and joint injuries, posture correction and orthotics. Having been injured myself I believe it gives me a wide understanding of the stresses and strains that chronic and acute pain can put on not only the body but also our mental health. I believe that chiropractic treatments and deep tissue manipulation work in harmony with each other and are now proven to have enormous benefits. We must listen to our bodies and service and maintain them as we do our cars without a second thought. Resorting to pain killing medication time after time is simply a quick fix to mask the pain but by doing so we ignore the underlying reason or cause.

I now have regular treatments once a week to help maintain a healthy mind/body balance. There is no need to wait until an injury happens. Simply having a deep tissue massage once a week helps release the build up of toxins in our body, revives us and gives our immune system a great boost.

Ruth Rose – Yoga Instructor

My name is Ruth Rose. I’m an experienced yoga teacher and dancer with a passion for people. Yoga is for absolutely everyone, not just the young or flexible. Yogic breathing techniques, relaxation, meditation and movement with correct posture can aid the individual in all aspects of life. My medical background and extensive study in anatomy, yoga and health help me to provide an excellent service to my clients. Regardless of what your background is, or your current lifestyle, I have a way to help improve your quality of life.

I teach my own unique style of yoga inspired by Iyengar’s focus on alignment and posture, the musical flow of Vinyasa and Hatha meditation and relaxation. I am very knowledgeable about the human body and mind, but as they say “teaching is learning, twice” and I am always learning something new. I keep my finger on the pulse of the yogi world, always coming up with fresh and invigorating lesson plans.

I keep my classes small, just 6 people per class, so I can give special attention to my students like a private lesson. Everybody is different, not one size fits all, so my classes are mixed ability with a level given to suit all; from absolute beginners to advanced students.

I also teach Ballet Yoga, a unique blend of ballet dance techniques and yoga. With these classes you can improve your agility, coordination, strength, flexibility and range of movement. Enjoy your fitness journey with my continuous support, taking you from the basics to a higher level.
