Why did you become involved in Chiropractic:
I first visited a Chiropractor when I was 15 years old. Being a competitive swimmer when I was younger, I suffered from a number of minor shoulder, back and other injuries.

These problems were originally put down to as 'growing pains' by other health professions and I was told that nothing could be done. I was advised to give up a sport I loved due to the problems I suffered from. Chiropractic treatment helped with those problems and enabled me to continue competing to this day.

Due to the results I had, and a close family member had, from Chiropractic care I decided to train to become a Chiropractor myself so I could help people in the same way I had been helped.

After studying hard for four years at the University of Glamorgan in South Wales and graduating in 2006 I decided to move back to my home area and use my skills I learnt and try to help local people.

From my own personal experience of how Chiropractic helped me with my sporting ambitions I have a special interest in helping sports people achieve their aims. Chiropractic can help with the competitors conditioning and play a big role in helping them reach their goals.

Who have you been able to help?
Regular members of the public get the same problems as athletes, although the athlete requires their body to perform at a superior level therefore small problems can inhibit performance.

I have been able to help people of all ages, with lots of differing problems including;
•    A 6 week year old baby.
•    A teenager who was suffering with aches and pains during and after school, who was told it was just ‘growing pains’.
•    Adults who have discomfort due to working a desk job and other occupational hazards.
•    Sports people who want to perform with less tension and discomfort.
•    Older ladies and gentlemen, who have ‘put up’ with stiffness and nagging aches for years and had been told there was nothing that could be done to ease them.

Do you enjoy your job?
I get a great sense of achievement and job satisfaction knowing that I have helped improve the quality of life for someone due to care I have given them. It is a lovely feeling!

From my experience people that have regular Chiropractic care enjoy a better quality of life, with less frequent and severe aches and pains. Obviously life will always throw up problems but I would not have trained to be a Chiropractor and would not be currently be one, if Chiropractic did not have positive effects on people’s lives.

What are your aims?
My aim as a Chiropractor is to help as many people as possible.

What are your long term goals?
My long term goal is to educate people about Chiropractic and for them to look after their health and spine with regular checkups, instead of just using Chiropractic when they have pains and problems.

Regular checkups aim to maintain the function. If the body is functioning well, it decreases the chance of problems developing. Chiropractors call this ‘maintenance care’. The aim is to reduce stresses and tension before they become problematic and works out cheaper in the long run.

Hopefully I will inspire others to follow in my path of Chiropractic and one day maybe become a Chiropractor themselves!

A little bit of background info:
I grew up in Elland, West Yorkshire and moved to St.Annes in 1998, 16 years ago. I have two children aged 16 and 13.

Why did you become involved in Complementary Therapy?
I have long had an interest in complementary and alternative therapies and treatments so when my daughter started school in 2004 I decided to develop this interest by enrolling on a course to learn more about Holistic Therapies.

What are you qualified to do?

I became qualified in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage in 2005 and I am also a Reiki practitioner.

How do people benefit from what you do?
The main benefit of these therapies is relaxation for relief from anxiety and stress.

What do you like about what you do?

I enjoy this job because I believe that relaxation therapy can be of enormous benefit to health and well-being and have found this to be the case from my own personal experience of receiving Holistic Therapy treatments.

Joanne is no longer regularly practising at the CCC however appointments may be available. Please call if you are requesting her.
