Andrew Whittaker
Co-Director and Chiropractor
LRCC DC
Masters in Chiropractic, Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, 2009
Andrew graduated in 2009 with a Masters in Chiropractic from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic.

As co-owner of Wellness Centre Newcastle he enjoys the challenge of running a business as well as focusing on being an outstanding chiropractor.

 

He has wanted to be a chiropractor from the age of 12 after he saw his first spinal adjustment performed on his mother, he was amazed at the precision and supposed simplicity of the manipulation and was impressed by the effectiveness of the treatment. He then persuaded his parents to take him to see a chiropractor and has been receiving regular treatment since.

 

Since graduating, Andrew has completed further training in Dry Needling, Western Medical Acupuncture, Neurolinguistic Programming, Nutrition, Kinesiology Taping, Pregnancy and Paediatric Care. Andrew also completed a course in Applied Kinesiology, which has fascinated him ever since he had the technique used on himself to help with eczema.

 

Andrew is interested in all forms of chiropractic care and has treated people of all ages, from just over a week old right into their 90s! His belief is that the body should be treated as a whole, and that people should be adjusted from birth to keep the whole body working optimally. Although, it’s never too late to start with chiropractic care. He enjoys both getting people pain-free and keeping people healthy through regular care, as well as exercises and home care advice.

 

His understanding of the musculoskeletal system, as well as the rest of the body, allows him to tailor each and every treatment to suit the person and their needs, whether that be pain relief or regular maintenance, so that everyone can be as comfortable as possible during their visit.

 

Andrew is a member of the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and Royal College of Chiropractors (RCC). He is also registered with AXA/PPP and is recognised by most other healthcare and insurance providers.

 

Outside of the practice, Andrew enjoys spending time with his wife Naomi, new baby daughter Alice and reading and keeping active. He also enjoys his regular pub quiz!
