My interest in pain and it’s effect on the whole life began when, as a teenager, I started to get migraines. It was a big shock to me just how much they affected every area of my life – time with family, time with friends, even my school work. Migraines run in my family, so after being ‘reassured’ by my grandmother that they would only last until the menopause (only another 40 years to go!) I resigned myself to taking medication which made me sleepy and withdrawn. It was only after a car accident made my migraines much more frequent that I went to see a chiropractor… and it changed my life. The relief was unbelievable! So I decided that after university I would retrain as a chiropractor and help to change other people’s lives too.
I studied at the prestigious AECC and qualified in 2012. I’ve been a member of the Royal College of Chiropractors for 6 years and a member of their specialist Complex Pain Faculty for 4 years. I have also achieved qualifications in Western Medical Acupuncture and Pain Management. Having worked for many years in local clinics in the North-West and the Midlands and treated thousands of patients, I set up my own practice in 2018.
I am married with a young son and when I’m not running around after my toddler you can find me ballroom dancing, weight lifting or playing a board game.
Olivia grew up on the Isle of Man where her passion for chiropractic started after a horse riding accident which lead to her first visit to a chiropractor at a young age. As Olivia continued with chiropractic care she started to become interested as to how her chiropractor was optimising her musculoskeletal health to improve her show jumping ability. Following this she was inspired to learn how the human body works and the importance of good spinal health, exercise and nutrition.
Olivia graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 2017. She enjoys using an array of techniques including – spinal and extremity adjusting, soft tissue techniques and functional rehabilitation. Olivia has had further training in dry needling, cognitive behavioural therapy and neuroplasticity therapy.
