Vivienne founded the Back in Line clinic in Henley in 2000 and has built up a formidable reputation. A highly successful chiropractor for thirty years, she is incisive and intuitive, with a warm sense of humour. She was drawn to the profession early on; her father was a chiropractic pioneer in Sydney and an inspirational mentor. She studied advanced acupuncture in China, where she worked in a leading hospital. Returning to the UK to establish a chiropractic practice, she also presented postgraduate lectures for GPs at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. As well as running Back in Line, Vivienne provides chiropractic care for Microsoft, the multinational corporation.

Amy Crerar, D.C. MChiro. Registered Chiropractor

Amy is a very proficient chiropractor in treating adults but she specialises in the treatment of children. So many junior patients present with so-called growing pains but pain is often a sign there is something wrong, as growing is not usually a painful process. If the spine is out of alignment or the feet have fallen arches, the body compensates causing abnormal stresses on bones and tendons, therefore when put under pressure during sporting activities pain is experienced. This can create chronic problems into adulthood without early intervention. She also treats children with learning difficulties.

Her second love is in treating equestrian injuries. As an eventer herself, she knows how important it is to develop the right balance, seat and posture. Even the smallest muscle or skeletal imbalances can affect rider and horse and can prevent achieving their best performance. She is also qualified to treat the horse!

Jack Johnson, D.C. MChiro. Registered Chiropractor

Jack studied for his Masters Degree at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic. Since graduating, his passion for chiropractic continues to transcend. He attends ongoing post graduate seminars across the UK and Europe to ensure optimal, first class care for his patients. He treats conditions ranging from back pain to people just wanting to improve their professional sporting performance and many other conditions in between. He has learnt that whoever you are, whatever your health goals, a plan of care can assist you in achieving excellent outcomes. Jack places paramount importance on educating all his patients in the understanding of chiropractic. This involves setting realistic goals toward a complete recovery and ongoing wellness.

Jack is an avid golfer; having played at national level. He keeps fit by weight training, high intensity cardiovascular training, skiing and golfing which places him in a good position to recommend rehabilitation and performance enhancing exercises for each of his patients. He believes that regular chiropractic adjustments and good nutrition plays an integral part in achieving optimal health.

It is important to realise that not everyone will be Olympians, but if we are adjusted to stimulate our nervous systems, eat a balanced healthy diet and undertake regular exercise, we will all improve the quality of our lives.
