Joanne Oaten MChiro DC MRCC
Chiropractor / Director
Jo graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic with a Masters degree at Distinction level. She has produced award winning research and written articles for the Royal College of Chiropractors.
She enjoys providing Neck & Back Pain treatment to patients of all ages using a range of techniques selected specifically for each patient. Her qualified techniques include chiropractic manipulation, use of an activator, medical acupuncture, therapeutic ultrasound, orthotics, strapping/taping and a range of soft tissue therapies. Jo feels it is particularly important to give her patients ways of self managing their complaints using home exercise and advice where appropriate.
She originally worked in Essex where she was involved in developing the NHS Manual Therapies AQP scheme which has since been rolled out to a number of areas across the UK. Whilst in Essex she also produced research used to advise BUPA and the NHS on their Chiropractic treatment methods whilst running a very busy private practice. Originally from Torquay she has recently returned to her roots in the South West.
Jo is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and is a full member of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA), Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC) and the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS). She is also the local Royal College of Chiropractors CPD (Continued Professional Development) coordinator for Somerset and Devon region providing CPD events and support for all RCC chiropractors in the region.
