Our founder, Dr Aaron Butcher DC, is a dedicated Chiropractor. He has kindly left a comment about his experience with the industry:
“I decided almost overnight that I wanted to be a chiropractor, because of the effect that chiropractic care had on my own life. I’ve always been really into my sports, but at one point I was training too hard and it started to take its toll on my body. I was getting back ache and I developed a disorder called Osgood-Schlatter disease. Nobody within the NHS was able to diagnose it, and my GP advised me that I would have to give up sports.
In desperation, I consulted a chiropractor called Jonathan Cartile, and with his help I made a full recovery. It made a big impression on me to see someone working to such a high standard outside the conventional healthcare system, and having a huge impact on people’s lives. I decided that that was the job for me, and I moved to Bournemouth to begin my training.” – Aaron (Our Founder)
Aaron has a gentle touch, which puts his patients at ease. He cares about the overall health of the people that he treats, evaluating the whole picture and encouraging the patient to make changes in their lifestyle. This enables them to heal. Like all good chiropractors, he works hard to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition, and addresses it so that healing can take place.
It was thanks to his love of sport that Aaron first encountered chiropractic. When martial arts and competitive swimming took their toll on his body, he consulted his GP to ease the pain he was in. However, he found the NHS could do little to help. In desperation, he consulted a chiropractor and was so impressed by the results that he decided to train to be one himself. These days he not only uses chiropractic to treat sports injuries, but also helps athletes to improve their performance through health optimisation.
Aaron trained for four years and emerged with a master’s degree from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. The call of home proved irresistible, and Aaron returned to live in the North East in 2016. He enjoys exploring beautiful Northumberland on one of his motorbikes, of which he currently has four.
