We are delighted that Carissa has joined the Chiropractic team here at Luck’s Yard. She will working Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2pm to 6pm.
Carissa was born in South Africa and moved to the UK in 1999 with her family. She graduated at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 2004 after 5 years of study and has since worked in clinics in Essex, Lincoln and lastly Farnham. She enjoys treating people from all walks of life and working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, working closely together to cater for every aspect of a client’s treatment needs.
Outside of work Carissa enjoys an active lifestyle and will mostly be found in the outdoors walking her Vizsla puppy Chesney or getting muddy participating at British Military Fitness.
“I enjoy treating patients of all ages, infants to adults, using a mix of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue work, dry needling, stretches and exercise and lifestyle advice . I encourage patients to take an active role in their health and recovery, by taking a holistic approach during assessments. This means discussing their lifestyle choices and getting clients to positively participate in their recovery. This is greatly helped when patients understand how they’ve come to experience the pain and how with chiropractic treatment and preventative measures they can avoid possible relapses.”
