GARY EDWARDS

Chiropractor

Ever since I can remember I went with my mother for her chiropractic treatments, and was always intrigued by the chiropractic profession. After working in different jobs for many years, I have decided to follow my dream to become a chiropractor. I have graduated as a chiropractor from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, where I also met my lovely wife, Orit Aharonovich- Edwards, and together we established our clinic. I treat and help patients suffering from acute and chronic pain and sports injuries. I enjoy working with people of all ages and from all walks of life. I believe that being healthy is influenced by many factors such as physical activities and diet. Therefore I always give advice about lifestyle changes to allow a better quality of life. I am looking forward to meeting you in person.

ORIT EDWARDS

Chiropractor

As a teenager, I suffered from pain and locking in my jaw and was consulting an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist who suggested surgery to reconstruct this joint. However, part of me felt that this action was too radical for my problem so I decided to seek the advice of a chiropractor. After some treatments with a chiropractor my problem became manageable and as a result I decided I would like to become a chiropractor in order to help other people with pain and dysfunction. I qualified as a chiropractor from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and was very lucky to meet Gary Edwards, now my husband, on my degree course. My greatest interest is working with the elderly and taking care of women during and after pregnancy. I am using a variety of chiropractic techniques tailored to the patients’ needs and preference. Working with people, listening to their concerns and helping with difficulties of daily living is my passion. I look forward to meeting you, and will do my best to help improve your quality of life.

I was also a visiting lecturer for the University of Surrey and provided training in trauma treatment to the psychology doctoral programme.

I have worked with adults, adolescents, couples and families experiencing a wide range difficulties including depression, low self confidence, panic, phobia, social anxiety, stress, anger, postnatal depression, health anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), chronic pain, disordered eating, body dysmorphic disorder, bereavement, childhood trauma and relationship problems.

Mr Andrew Bowden

Chiropractor

I grew up on a dairy farm, near Falmouth in Cornwall, but soon found myself drawn more towards sports than tractors. From a very young age I took up both football and cricket, and succumbed to the inevitable injuries that come with it. This gave me my first introduction to chiropractic as it helped me a great deal to overcome these and get back on to the pitch in far better shape.

With my sporting background and knowing what chiropractic can do, and always wanting to have a career which helped people, I decided chiropractic was the path I wanted to follow and graduated from the 4- year Master of Chiropractic course from the Anglo- European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth in 2017. 

I am particularly interested in sporting injuries, especially of the lower limb, but can help people from ‘all walks of life’ with any musculo- skeletal complaint. My main aim is to help as many people as possible so they can do what they want to do without fear of pain or potential for pain. This will be achieved through a range of treatment, advice and home exercises to do in your own time.
