Pain Free ……………..Faster!
Which one of our practitioners is the most appropriate for your problem?
Verity Moore – for those people who would benefit from having a bit more time to chat and who have had pain for a while and need more regular checkups.
Martin Krir – for those busy people who have acute injuries that they want to be treated fast and do not want lengthy ‘treatment plans’ or long chats.
Joy Harrison – for both acute and chronic pain – particularly neck pain and headaches – and those who need their bodies ‘realigning’.
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 specialises in treating those people with acute injuries that want to get rid of the problem quickly, before it becomes a big problem.
Joy Harrison D.C., M Chiro.
Doctor of Chiropractic
I completed my Masters Degree at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic after 5 years of intensive study.
Since graduating, I have worked in busy practices in Surrey, Fareham and Bournemouth, which has enabled me to gain a wealth of experience, as well as being able to treat a wide variety of conditions ranging from simple low back pain to more complex, chronic conditions that have been neglected.
I have undertaken many additional courses over the years that include sports massage, dry needling and applied kinesiology and I have a particular interest in treating headaches, and acute neck complaints but I love treating all problems that may present to me.
I like to research the ‘bigger picture’ to really find out why my patients may have developed the pain they are experiencing. Then we can work together to reduce the likelihood of the pain returning. I often incorporate exercises and nutrition in the treatment of problems that are proving problematic.
In my spare time I love to keep fit with aerial aerobics and walking my dog. I love learning new recipes to cook and enjoy the outdoors.
We are delighted to have acquired the services of this wonderful therapist. She is a Person Centred Counsellor who trained at P.C.C.S. which is a private training centre in Manchester under Pete Sanders who is a very prominent professor of the Person Centred theory of Carl Rogers. She qualified in the year 2000 and is a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. She has been in full time practice since qualifying. Person Centred therapy is client led and treats the whole person in a non-judgemental non directive way. Its purpose is to improve your quality of life and to explore the causes of chronic conditions such as anxiety, stress, depression, any other emotional or temperamental problem and chronic physical conditions such as back pain. Research shows that changing your mindset and brain biology can certainly help to lessen your pain. The therapy can be long or short because it is led by you – the client led and so you choose the duration of the therapeutic relationship.
The chiropractors at the Avenue Clinic are very aware that our patients with high levels or long duration of pain are at risk for developing psychiatric disorders and that they would benefit from treatment independent of physical treatment, which is what has led us to create our association with Meredith, in order to help the ‘whole’ of you get better. All of her consultations are by telephone and cost £40 per hour long session. If you would like a complementary discussion to make sure she can help you, call her on 0161 485 1744 or email her at email@example.com and please tell her we recommended you!
