CHIROPRACTIC BIOPHYSICS

We take spinal and posture correction and health restoration to a whole new level, especially for those who are wanting long term resolutions. Align 4 Life is a fully equipped Chiropractic Biophysics Rehabilitation centre, one of only five in Europe.

Chiropractic BioPhysics®, or CBP®, is, in short, a higher level of chiropractic. It has more published papers in peer-reviewed indexed journals than all other techniques combined. It is a more knowledgeable, comprehensive, systematic, scientific approach to chiropractic that provides predictable results for clients and contributes to building a more stable and successful chiropractic practice. Support for this claim includes a considerable amount of data from research, the experience of numerous flourishing CBP® practitioners, and the longevity of the approach.

 

CBP® combines standard chiropractic joint adjustments with mirror image® (opposite position) postural adjustments, mirror image® spinal/postural exercise, and mirror-image® spinal remodelling traction to provide more permanent relief and improved health for clients through spine and postural correction.

Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® is focused on producing improved posture, balance, spinal alignment and restoration of essential spinal curves. Clinical Biomechanics of Posture® helps produce optimal posture and spinal alignment. As your spine assumes a more competent relationship with gravity, symptoms diminish and health can return.

CORRECTIVE CARE PROTOCOL

After symptomatic relief, patients are offered the option to pursue Corrective Care. This is where dramatic, longer-lasting spinal changes are made. This is done through a specific protocol of adjustments, traction and exercise.

 

  • Adjustments help restore segmental integrity to the spine, decrease abnormal weight distribution and avoid spinal degeneration.

  • Traction delivers a constant force to help retrain and remodel the spine to counter the effects of long-standing postural distortions.

  • Exercises, designed for each patient’s particular spinal abnormality, are used to strengthen weaker areas of the spine.

Dr. Neil Thompson D.C.

M.Tech.Chiro. (Doctor of Chiropractic)

Being a classic skeptic I would never have believed 15 years ago that many health conditions could be helped, and in many cases overcome, by improving spine and nervous system function, diet, exercise, and right thinking. However, witnessing miraculous changes in the lives of many of my clients eventually convinced me this was true!

 was suffering with low back pain and it was preventing me from being able to compete in the sports I loved. I grew afraid that I would never be able to play competitive sport again because all the medical specialists could not figure out what was wrong with me.

Dr. Patrick Newman D.C.

M.Tech. Chiropractic (Doctor of Chiropractic)

I will start by telling you that I have always wanted to dedicate my life to helping others find/ discover hope; to promote healthy living and provide a service that was concerned with maintaining well-being. As a boy I suffered from Tension-type headaches, something that was severe enough to affect daily living and enough to make me seek out professional help.

Chiropractic Education

I graduated from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC). I received a distinction for my dissertation on Tension-Type Headaches. After university I started my own practice which operated out of Johannesburg for three and a half years.

M.Tech. Chiropractic (Doctor of Chiropractic)

My initial interest in and passion for chiropractic began over a decade ago after witnessing the impact and transformative effects chiropractic treatment had on my brother’s life, years after being involved in a serious motorbike accident. At this point, I decided to visit a Chiropractor myself, to experience the chiropractic miracles I had witnessed and I received care that helped me in so many ways.

Chiropractic Education

Drawing from my background as a sports therapist, I made the decision to pursue my passion and began full-time studies at the esteemed Durban University of Technology in South Africa.

Gina Horan

Rehab Technician

I joined Dr Neil Thompson (Doctor of Chiropractic) at Align 4 Life in March 2010 and it was only then that I was introduced and truly understood the philosophy of chiropractic.

My mum had visited a chiropractor several years ago and I always thought the purpose of her visits were ‘to get her back clicked!’ However, it was only when meeting Neil and I began working at Align 4 Life that I was educated about the true power of chiropractic.

I am passionate about health, fitness and human anatomy and it was after listening to the spinal presentation given by Neil, that everything I have learned and studied over the years, started to really make sense and connect with chiropractic. I have always known how amazing and capable the human body is and learning the natural, holistic approach chiropractic has, I could finally see the foundations needed to attain true optimal health.

Rehab Technician

I joined the rehab team at Align 4 Life in September 2021 after being intrigued by Chiropractic Biophysics.

For over 20 years, my background has been in the health and fitness sector, starting out as a Gym Instructor, Personal Trainer and Gym Manager. I have also taught and assessed new personal trainers within the fitness industry for the past ten years. After becoming a mum myself, I retrained as a Pre and Postnatal Women’s Wellness Coach, where I further developed my knowledge of anatomy, physiology and psychology.

 

I have always had a passion for helping people improve their lives through health, wellness, nutrition, and the power of the mind. Since joining Align 4 Life, I have noticed how chiropractic biophysics follows all the principles I have learned over the years. I am very excited to help others achieve their health and wellness goals, and I am proud to be working with such a fantastic team.

Steph Burton

Chiropractic Assistant

I joined Align 4 Life Isle of Man in September 2020. Prior to working here I had no experience of chiropractic treatment but was very keen to learn as I have always followed a healthy lifestyle. I believe we should strive for wellness rather than treating sickness.

I have always been physically fit until I slipped a disc in 2005. After this I was unable to do the sports I used to so starting walking. I was introduced to race walking and went on to complete the Parish Walk 9 times. This is an 85 mile walk around the Isle of Man which has to be
completed within 24 hours.

 

In 2022 I decided to try my hand at triathlons. I have now retired from competitive race walking and compete in Isle of Man and UK sprint triathlons.

 

I previously worked in Information Technology, Finance and Payroll Administration. I am excited
to have found a career which incorporates my love of health, wellness and fitness.

Michelle Fitzpatrick

Chiropractic Assistant

I relocated to the Island two years ago from South Africa with my husband and family. If I am honest, I have always been a little sceptical about Chiropractors, hearing mixed reports from those who had received ‘traditional’ treatment. I discovered Align 4 Life when my husband needed care. After years of back pain, it was incredible to see the change in his back and general health. I then received treatment myself and have been genuinely amazed by the results. I used to suffer from debilitating migraines, which I now have not experienced in over nine months since having treatment. I have more energy, sleep better, and am migraine free!

 

Since working at Align 4 Life, it has been amazing to see how clients’ lives have been turned around through advanced Chiropractic BioPhysics. Although I’m not directly involved in patient care, it is a privilege to support them in their journey to health and work alongside a great team of Doctors and Rehab Technicians.

Chiropractic Assistant

I’m delighted to have had the opportunity to join Align 4 Life, diving deeper into the world of holistic health and witnessing the life changing transformation in our clients lives as we support them to take their health into their own hands.

Having grown up with various allergies and eczema, I was forced to look at alternative treatments and therapies when the options offered by allopathic medicine didn’t work. I found that the treatments offered only addressed the symptom and never the root cause. Whilst travelling in India, I was introduced to ayurvedic medicine and it’s healing properties and it set me on a journey of discovery into the world of functional and natural medicine and on a personal journey of health and wellness over the past 12 years.

Amy Nicol Rehab Technician

Rehab Technician

I joined the Align 4 Life team as a rehabilitation technician mid-August so we thought it was time I properly introduced myself! 

 

As some of you already know I love to keep active and can be found either lifting weights at the gym or out walking in the hills with my hiking group the Manx Young Ramblers. I also enjoy pole fitness, yoga and cold water dipping alongside deep breathing exercises such as the Wim Hoff Method. Relaxation is just as important to me so I finish off the week with a well deserved sauna session, which is the perfect place to meditate and ground yourself after a busy week. 

 

 One of my other big joys in life is cooking wholesome, nutritious food. I get great satisfaction from serving people delicious recipes and proving that a healthy lifestyle doesn’t need to be bland! After 8 wonderful years in the hospitality industry, I decided to pursue a career which focused even more on improving the wellness of other people, so it was a dream come true when I became part of the team here at Align 4 Life. 

 

Rachel Woodiwiss

Rehab Technician

I joined Align4Life beginning of February 2023 joining as part of the rehab team.

This was a complete career change from my previous work as a registered dental nurse, which I had worked as for 24 years.

I have always had an interest in fitness and well being,  and have, gained various fitness qualifications including personal trainer and pre/ post natal instructor. I taught various exercise classes when I qualified, and still teach aerial hoop once a week.

I knew very little about Chiropractics before I joined Align4 life.

Working at Align has increased my awareness and understanding of chiropratic and how it can make a significant difference 

It is amazing to see how much of an impact chiropractic has on clients in their overall health and well being and to see their progress.

Kamran Mirshahi

Doctor of Chiropractic

Hi I’m Dr. Kam! I was born and raised in Canada. I grew up on a farm just north of Toronto. I’ve always loved working with my hands and helping people. From landscaping and tree planting to teaching human and animal dissection classes.

 

I grew up playing piano every day and still play to this day. My mother would always tell me to “sit up straight!” while I played, which I found somewhat annoying as I hunched and slouched on the piano bench, unaware of the negative effects and ramifications poor posture can have. Reluctantly following my mother’s advice, today I can’t thank her enough for the posture corrections and piano lessons, somewhat ironically, not knowing that correcting and teaching others about posture would eventually be my calling.

 

In my spare time, you can find me at the gym, on the basketball courts, hiking and running. I also love to cook and to travel. My favourite pastime is playing board games or video games with my friends and family.

Abigail Seaton

Chiropractic Assistant

I was born and raised on a beautiful farm in the Kent countryside. From a young age I was always helping and assisting animals which soon transitioned into helping people. I enjoy a very active lifestyle… from horse riding, championship judo tournaments, hiking through the Australian bush to skydiving, scuba diving and running a tough Mudder. 

 

My passion lies within health and fitness and the satisfaction of helping others, when I came across Align4life I was completely blown away with the positive impact and all the life changing opportunities. Whilst many reasons the approach specifically to the spinal and nervous system rehabilitation caught my eye. From my many years throughout my childhood witnessing both my parents struggle with the crippling effects of back pain I’m keen to spread the word so we can help others when experiencing issues and not knowing the next steps to take. 

 

I always knew I wanted to do a job that helped people and find it extremely fascinating and receive a true sense of fulfilment knowing you will be able to help someone to live without constant pain, enjoy a better lifestyle and changing the way they live.

Chiropractic Assistant

I joined the team at Align 4 Life after being a patient as I was so impressed with the results I experienced after just 8 weeks of care in the Sevenoaks Clinic.

I have a severe spinal scoliosis which led to a spinal fusion some 29 years ago, I was suffering from lower back pain and seeking proffesional advice on how to manage my pain and maintain good spinal health. I had never seen a Chiropractor and, I must admit, I was sceptiacal and anxious about visiting the clinic and what could be done for me. 

I am now completely pain free and have exercises that I do daily to support my progress. My mental health and sleep have improved dramatically, and it is a priviledge to see others on the same pathway and seeing them invest in their health and wellbeing.

Nicky Cole

Chiropractic Assistant and Practice Manager

I joined the team at Align 4 Life Sevenoaks in June 2024 and I'm really excited to begin contributing to the success of the clinic and supporting the wonderful work of the team in helping our clients rebuild their health and wellbeing.

 

Physical and mental wellbeing has always been a focus for me, both in my own life following a number of injuries and in my previous roles. I enjoy keeping fit and it's an integral part of my life, with regular trips to the gym, boxfit classes, pilates and yoga sessions. I also love getting outside with my husband Olly and young son  Harry - it's fantastic to see Harry build new skills and have new experiences, whether that's helping him learn to ride a bike, playing football together in the garden or going for a walk at a National Trust site - Wakehurst is a particular favourite of ours.

 

I'm really looking forward to learning more about Chiropractic BioPhysics and supporting our clients in their journey to improved health.
