Bridget graduated from a 4 year honours degree at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic based at the then University of Glamorgan near Cardiff, Wales in 2002. Having discovered Chiropractic as a patient herself in 1991 and enjoyed the benefits of treatment, she enrolled as a mature student.
In 2003 she set up her first practice in Brecon, amid the beautiful Welsh mountains, where she built a successful practice until 2010 when she married and moved to Peterborough.
Bridget practices from her fully equipped clinic in Glinton and treats a wide range of patients both privately, and by referal by other medical professionals and insurance companies. To check which ones please call the clinic.
Professor Gert Bronforte et al, published their findings on the ‘Effectiveness of Manual Therapies’ in 2010. A UK based report assessing the evidence for and against the use of manual therapies including chiropractic. They concluded that spinal manipulation or mobilisation is effective in the treatment of acute, sub acute and chronic low back pain in adults; migraine prevention and cervicogenic (originating from the neck) headaches and a variety of joint conditions affecting both the upper and lower extremities (arms and legs). It also showed that manipulation or mobilisation of the thoracic spine (mid back ie. collar to waist) is effective in acute and sub acute neck pain and when accompanied by exercise, and when applied to the cervical spine (neck) is effective for chronic neck pain.

Prior to this, NICE published its guidelines (CG88; 27 May 2009) regarding the early management of persistent low back pain where it recommends the use of manual therapy, including spinal manipulation when administered by qualified professionals. http://www.nice.org.uk
