Laura Simmons MChiro
Laura Simmons decided to become a chiropractor having seen the benefits of chiropractic care first hand from a young age. Laura felt that chiropractic gave her the opportunity to support patients throughout the whole recovery process, giving them the help they need to get back to their daily lives.
She graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, where she worked with Bournemouth University to treat and prevent sports injuries. This involved working with a wide range of athletes, treating injuries as well as working to enhance performance and encourage injury resistance.
Laura enjoys working with a wide range of patients from paediatric patients to the elderly. Having been a part of a combined midwifery-chiropractic clinic focusing on addressing feeding difficulties, Laura is keen to support mothers throughout pregnancy and treat the paediatric patient.
With many of us spending increasing hours using technology and having sedentary jobs and lifestyles, Laura has been involved in carrying out work place ergonomic assessments to help reduce back pain, neck pain and tension headaches through better work place set ups.
Laura continues to attend post-graduate courses focusing on her interests and treats patients of all ages helping them out of pain and addressing the root cause to aid injury prevention.
