- More about Nadene
- Nadene first encountered chiropractic at a young age following a sports injury where she was inspired to follow the same rewarding career. Since qualifying from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2015, she has been based in Cheltenham.
Originally from Southampton, Nadene and her family have always considered Chiropractic as part of normal life. She continues to attend seminars that widen her treatment skills, including kinesiology taping, western medical acupuncture (dry needling) and instrument assisted fascial release.
She believes that the body works as one and should be treated that way by getting to the route of the problem, not just treating the symptoms. Nadene believes that regular maintenance treatment, educating her patients on their condition and teaching them home exercises and rehab helps to prevent the chance of the injury reoccurring.
Outside of clinic, Nadene enjoys socialising with friends, travelling the world, renovating properties and keeping fit.
