Mikael Porath Petersen
Doctor of Chiropractic
Mikael decided chiropractic was his future after suffering a severe back injury. He graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in 1997 and immediately started working with professional athletes, including the Danish National Football team. Mikael is always prepared to be challenged, one of his latests latest projects is a Olympic swimmer with a nerve irritation,which reduces her muscle strength. Mikael is convinces that she will soon be on the podium.
Sports Chiropractic Demonstrated the Potential
Working with such an array of professional athletes made Mikael realise that chiropractic doesn’t simply relieve pain and restore nerve function, it is also an incredible catalyst that allows the body to express its true potential once the spine is free from nerve interference.
The last decade has seen Mikael’s career focus on the general public, especially postural improvements and the effect of gait/foot mechanics on spinal function. Mikael truly loves his profession and when asked what he would do if he had not become a chiropractor, says “I would be a chiropractor.”
Education is Key to Community Health
Mikael gives regular health talks to companies, schools, sports clubs and special interest groups throughout London, in addition to his weekly Posture and Health talks at the clinic. “I find” he says, “that education is the most important part of my job as a chiropractor. We are creating so many health problems for ourselves, many of which can be prevented or at least partly prevented by a slight change in lifestyle.”
Mikael is often complimented for his bedside manner, which he explains is a result from working weekends for two years in his youth as a nurse at an old peoples’ home in Denmark. Today, Mikael continues to travel the world attending seminars given by leading chiropractic researchers and practitioners.
Mikael lives by the motto that the best doctor of chiropractic knows what to do, how to do it and why to do it.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Harrison has always been fascinated in the human body and how improper biomechanics of the skeletal system can be the origin to an assortment of symptoms. His chiropractic career started when he had a role as a personal assistant to a Chiropractor in East London where he witnessed incredible results which he calls ‘Miracles’.
Harrison believes health is much more than just the absence of disease, he believes that health can be optimised through removing interference on the nervous system restoring optimal function.
From a young age Harrison has taken part in a variety of sports, such as badminton, martial arts and cross fit. Chiropractic care has not only given Harrison the ability to train and compete without recurring injuries but also enhanced his performance all round.
This gave Harrison the incentive to attain a degree in chiropractic which he is very passionate about. Now, he has the gratification of seeing outstanding results (“miracles”) in his own patients.
Spreading the word: It seems apparent to Harrison that among our community there is a huge lack of understanding of the nervous system and that if people had some guidance they would have much more knowledge on how to help with their own symptoms and performance.
This year Harrison is coming round to business’s in London educating on the effect poor office ergonomics has on the body and the importance of maintaining a healthy nervous system. Chiropractic isn’t just a career for Harrison, it’s a lifestyle.
