Dr Francis Kelly, Doctor of Chiropractic
Francis Kelly has known the benefits of chiropractic since attending a chiropractor from a very young age. He found that chiropractic care made a big difference to his overall health and wellbeing. Being a keen sportsman, Francis relies on having optimum health and fitness levels, and has found that regular chiropractic care, along with a balanced lifestyle, helps him to achieve his sports goals.
After Francis saw his brother become a chiropractor, he knew he was destined to follow in his footsteps! He left his hometown in Northern Ireland and moved to Bournemouth where he attended the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. After graduating, Francis moved up to Scotland where he began working here at Kingdom Chiropractic.
Describing chiropractic care, Francis says: "Think of your health as a bank account. You can make deposits (good nutrition, exercise, proper rest, chiropractic care, etc.) and you can make withdrawals (neglect, stress, diet, poor posture, etc.) Like your bank account, if you make more withdrawals than deposits, you get some expensive overdraft notices from the bank. Low back pain and pain down your legs? It’s an “overdraft” your body is sending you. Headaches? A bounced check. Numbness and tingling down your arm? A service charge from your health “bank.”
Many people begin spinal care because they’re overdrawn and their health bank has levied some harsh fees. These penalties serve as a reminder that they haven’t been making adequate deposits. If you've lost your health, you’ll need to make some immediate deposits into your account to get yourself out of the red. We call that Relief Care. Then you have a choice. You can neglect your account and suffer a relapse and more service fees later. Or, continue making deposits into your account, building up your balance and giving yourself some breathing room. Think of that as Corrective Care. The smartest option is to continue making still more deposits, opening up a savings account that can serve as a buffer you can call upon in moments of stress. We call that Wellness Care. What’s the balance in your health account?"
Francis looks forward to welcoming you to our clinic and helping you to achieve your health goals.
