Dr Jan Krir DC, BA, MSc, CCEP
Doctor of Chiropractic & Clinic Director
Jan Krir is no longer in practise at the Avenue Clinic but she still runs the clinic administration. She has a wealth of knowledge that she uses to update the website regularly with posts and Newsletters to help you understand your problem and to let you know if we can help you. She believes that back pain should not be a lifetime problem and believes that through education and understanding, patients can gain control of their back pain.
Verity Moore DC, MSc (Chiro)
Doctor of Chiropractic
Verity Moore has a special interest in acute neck and back pain and also sports injuries. She has a lot of experience of taking care of women during pregnancy – both during and after pregnancy. She uses a range of techniques selected specifically for each patient. Health and fitness has always been important to her and from an early age she has been exposed to a variety of sporting activities as her father managed a sports centre.
Martin Krir D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Martin has a wealth of experience, having been a chiropractor for over 25 years. He uses both McTimoney techniques and also manipulation, as required. He ran his own successful practice for all of this time, whilst at the same time working in close collaboration with local GP’s. They formed a team that worked together in order to ensure the most effective ways to treat back and joint pain. He relocated to Southampton and joined the Avenue Clinic a year ago part time and we are delighted that he has now agreed to take over Richard Barton’s patient list from June 2016. He attends courses regularly to make sure that he remains at the cutting edge of knowledge and implements evidence based practice when treating. He uses a gentle, effective method of treatment and aims to relieve patients of their pain in as short a time as possible. He tailors his treatment specifically for every patient.
Antonia Bonagura, D.C., MSc (Chiro)
Doctor of Chiropractic
I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic with a First Class Masters degree. I have a keen interest in Paediatrics and pregnancy and am always amazed at how chiropractic care can massively influence the development of babies and infants.
Living in the New Forest, I have grown up riding horses and going on as many adventures as possible. Sports and fitness have always been important features in my life and I enjoy treating sports injuries to help patients reach their full potential. From various sporting injuries, I know firsthand how debilitating an injury can be and how valuable effective treatment is in speeding the recovery process. By incorporating the most up-to-date and high-quality research into our treatment plans, chiropractors are at the forefront of our profession in treating these intricate complaints.
I feel it is important to treat the functional cause of the injury instead of just chasing the symptom of pain and so I often incorporate rehabilitative stretches and exercises into my treatments.
I find chiropractic extremely rewarding and I continue to be delighted by how much my treatments can improve the quality of life for my patients.
Dr Damon Murgatroyd
I am proud to have been associated with the Avenue Clinic for the past several years, and the wide range of health spinal and counselling services provided there. I myself am a registered osteopath and orthopaedic physician, able to treat in both holistic and traditional ways (including injections). I feel that the spinal and joint care services offered by my chiropractic colleagues in this clinic are both effective and safe, which means that patients have excellent treatment from the two disciplines. It is important to note that despite the subtle differences between osteopathy and chiropractic, we all strive to help our patients to achieve optimum comfort and function in their daily lives.
Cristina Palici Bsc (Hons) LicAc MBAcC
Acupuncturist and Tui Na practitioner
I qualified as an acupuncturist from the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading, having trained in both 5 Element and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I find the view of health which Chinese Medicine offers an inspiration. Its philosophy and approach to understanding the functionality of the body, the health of the individual, has opened a pathway for exploring approaches to help us to relate more to ourselves and others.
