Dorking and Guildford Spinal Correction Care : Tony Parker

I Was Sceptical at First

I was sceptical at first. I had suffered with neck and shoulder problems and occasional headaches for years. I wish I had known then what I know now.

I Wish I had Known then What I Know Now

My relief came as part of 2 astonishing coincidences. I had recently parted company with my first wife. I was looking for a person to share the expenses of running my house, with a thought of going back to university to start a career in medicine (I had the right qualifications, financially secure, and had no commitments). Both coincidences came in one: the very first “applicant” to become my lodger had just completed his 5 year chiropractic degree and was about to start work locally. Not only did he show me a simple strategy to improve my comfort and health beyond all recognition, I became very aware -very quickly- that my desire to help others would much better matched within natural approaches.

Tony Parker, Dorking and Guildford ChiropractorA ‘Patient First’ Attitude

I attended the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth. A wonderful place. The first chiropractic institution outside America (before 1965 the qualification could only be gained from one of the 19 colleges in the U.S.). The education is incredibly in-depth: all major medical knowledge is covered with special emphasis placed on diagnosis and -fairly obviously- manual procedures. For myself the classes on physiology and anatomy were both challenging and enlightening, and have a considerable impact on my day to day work. We had many excellent instructors, exceptionally ‘people-oriented’ people, most notable among those was Dr Bill. Apart from instilling wonderful techniques for patient help, he did a good job of instilling a ‘patient first’ attitude.

The Purpose of Ability Back

The purpose of our practice is to help as many people as possible regain and maintain there health – especially children. We have a particular interest in helping children as many of the conditions we help are the result of fairly innocent-seeming injuries and incidents occurring in earlier life. Our strategies for correcting the cause of problems work very well indeed -we have improved the lives of over 11,500 families since 1989. In all that time we have only ever asked 3 people not to return (principally because we did not feel their requirement was in alignment with the good of all using our practice). When people report loss of their back pain, headaches or neck pain this is fantastic; when they tell of improved stamina, general body performance, just “feeling generally better”, athletic ability and many other enhancements (you will be able to read about these -and others- in our fully-accredited “success stories” available in the reception area). Such happy, tremendous “life-improvements” make it difficult to describe the good feelings given to the therapist.

Tony Parker – At Home

My wife Claire also has health care interests, conducting Hypnobirthing classes to make childbirth a less stressful more pleasurable and relaxed experience. We have three lovely daughters: Ella graciously bestowed upon us in 1996, Lily a millennium baby and Layla our 2004 arrival. They all have a greater or lesser relationship with a tennis racket, are very healthy, have never had any vaccinations, antibiotics or other drugs and rarely take time from schooling due to illness. We always use a natural approach to restoring health. I run regularly (not if the temperature is below 4degrees – “on the spot” if necessary!), play tennis 2,3 or 4 times a week -not just “fair-weather”- our club has all-weather floodlit courts! I actively support the Brigitte Trust, Barnados, Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Rotarians and other charities and worthwhile causes.

Spinal Corrective Care Has Had An Enormous Impact on My Life

Spinal corrective care has had such an enormous impact on my life and those around me. I have regular check-ups and check members of my family on a regular basis. We have a very health-orientated lifestyle -having at least 6 different fruits (or parts of!) for breakfast, although we are not all total vegetarian we have mostly fish or white meat very rarely red, invariably organic. When available we use organic produce. I find many people get great benefit from minor modifications to their diet, never compulsory, I give all practice visitors advice on how they can “fine-tune” their nutrition.

Enough about me! How can we help you with today’s safe and natural chiropractic care? Give us a call so we can help you take your first step towards better body performance.
