Tom was first exposed to chiropractic by accident, after he sustained a rib injury playing rugby for his native Cambridgeshire: a short course of treatment from a chiropractor saw him soon back to health and returned to the pitch.
Given his strong family connections to South Wales and the Welsh Valleys Tom chose to study at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. Its proximity to the Brecon Beacons and stunning Gower Peninsula were – for this keen outdoor sportsman – a deal maker, and he graduated with a BSc in Anatomy and Neuroscience and Masters in Chiropractic.
Tom’s clinical approach is a diversified technique integrating established principles in human health science: where appropriate he uses sacro-occipital technique (SOT), activator method and Derrifield technique to assist in fully understanding, diagnosing and treating your condition. Ultimately his aim is to understand the root cause of symptoms so as to reduce or lessen the recurrence of any issues in future.
Tom’s main sporting passions are skiing, rowing and rugby and he is currently undertaking professional development towards the treatment of injuries specific to these sports, as well as exercises and ergonomic corrections of muscle imbalances that can correct injuries in these sports.
