Richard Anthony - Doctor of Chiropractic
I am a born and bred Suffolk lad, and from a young age I have always been interested in health. I was first introduced to chiropractic when my Mum injured her back on holiday in Italy. She was unable to walk so we helped carry her into a chiropractic clinic in Rome and half an hour later she came walking back out. The results amazed me and so I knew that Chiropractic was the future for me.
I was accepted into the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth and spent the next 5 years studying hard to earn my Masters degree in Chiropractic. After graduating I worked as an associate at Calderdale Chiropractic for a year in Halifax, and then at Lincs Chiropractic for a year in Boston. I loved being a part of an established health community but knew I wanted to start one myself back home.
Now I am back home in Suffolk, and together with my wife Catriona, we now run our own Chiropractic Clinic in Wickham Market and are very much enjoying the lovely weather and making new friends here. Chiropractic care is still a big part of my personal life. Regularly getting treated myself helps eliminate any aches and pains that crop up, but more importantly helps me keep at my best. That is why I happily encourage everybody to do the same, so they can live their life to the full as well.
For me though, the biggest change since my introduction to chiropractic is in the way I view health. Now, I don't wait for symptoms like pain; I actively try to maintain my health and to reach new health goals and I want to share this with others.
I had worked at Peterborough City hospital for just under 2 years when we decided to set up our own clinic. I enjoyed having the opportunity to support families in Peterborough and I now look forward to being part of the care you will receive at Cruise Chiropractic as it's Practice Manager.
I have loved the countryside from a young age having grown up in the beautiful wee town of Pitlochry in Scotland. When my husband and I were deciding where to settle down, we felt it would be nice to be in the country, providing care in easy reach of those who live in it.
When Richard and I first met I was studying paediatric nursing at Edinburgh Napier University. I had never heard of chiropractic and was quite sceptical having grown up in a very mainstream medical family, but I decided to find out for myself what it was like, knowing the extensive training Richard was doing.
I was amazed at how much it helped. I felt I was able to move more freely and the pain that I had been experiencing in my back from bad posture and an old mattress was decreasing with treatments.
