GARY EDWARDS

Chiropractor

Ever since I can remember I went with my mother for her chiropractic treatments, and was always intrigued by the chiropractic profession. After working in different jobs for many years, I have decided to follow my dream to become a chiropractor. I have graduated as a chiropractor from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, where I also met my lovely wife, Orit Aharonovich- Edwards, and together we established our clinic. I treat and help patients suffering from acute and chronic pain and sports injuries. I enjoy working with people of all ages and from all walks of life. I believe that being healthy is influenced by many factors such as physical activities and diet. Therefore I always give advice about lifestyle changes to allow a better quality of life. I am looking forward to meeting you in person.

ORIT EDWARDS

Chiropractor

As a teenager, I suffered from pain and locking in my jaw and was consulting an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist who suggested surgery to reconstruct this joint. However, part of me felt that this action was too radical for my problem so I decided to seek the advice of a chiropractor. After some treatments with a chiropractor my problem became manageable and as a result I decided I would like to become a chiropractor in order to help other people with pain and dysfunction. I qualified as a chiropractor from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and was very lucky to meet Gary Edwards, now my husband, on my degree course. My greatest interest is working with the elderly and taking care of women during and after pregnancy. I am using a variety of chiropractic techniques tailored to the patients’ needs and preference. Working with people, listening to their concerns and helping with difficulties of daily living is my passion. I look forward to meeting you, and will do my best to help improve your quality of life.
