Pierre Van Dyke ChiropractorPierre Van Dyke

Pierre received his formal education in South Africa, in Pretoria, and completed an Honours degree in Physiotherapy in 2000. After qualifying Pierre ran his own clinic in Pretoria for four years where he specialized in sports injuries and musculoskeletal problems. He was also selected as lead physio for the Blue Bulls Super 15 rugby team for two years during this time. He then decided to travel and arrived in the UK in early 2005.

Pierre started working for Ford in Southampton to assess and implement injury prevention programmes in the workplace as a certified OMT spinal physio with extensive experience in ergonomics. After eight months he accepted a position at Optimal Spine, where he is expanding his interest in musculoskeletal and sports injuries. He works closely with patients in regards to posture and exercise, and treats children with physical development problems as well as ladies with pregnancy related issues.

Pierre applies his knowledge to better understand how patients injure themselves, and seeks out ways to prevent related issues. Pierre shares his experience and knowledge as he believes that educating the patient creates a better partnership for the healing process.

He takes a holistic approach to health and wellbeing and is very strong believer in good diet, exercise and making healthy lifestyle choices.

Lam enjoys a wide range of physical activities in his spare time, including rock climbing, mountain biking and HIIT weight training. He also used to compete at regional level at indoor volleyball in Essex where he grew up.

Since qualifying, Lam has been practicing in clinics spanning the London, Berkshire and Surrey areas.

During his spare time Michelson will be furthering his studies in postural correction and rehabilitation.
