I have over a decade of experience treating all sorts of joint, muscle and movement dysfunctions. I set up Duston Chiropractic Clinic in April 2017 after working for clinics in Sheffield, Mansfield, Market Harborough, Nottingham and Milton Keynes. Over the years I've completed many courses to improve my knowledge and skill set, these have included sports chiropractic, kinesiotaping, acupuncture, instrument assisted soft tissue and more recently Active Release Technique, Golf injuries and treatment. In May 2019 I attended the European McGill Conference, a very in depth method of evaluation and management of low back pain. I'm currently completing the International Certificate in Sports Chiropractic and the FIFA Diploma in Football Medicine.
I graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2009 with a Master of Chiropractic degree. Chiropractors study for a minimum of 4 years with a year post-registration training. Annual continuing professional development is a requirement of registration with the General Chiropractic Council and keeps my skills up to date. I am also registered with the British Chiropractic Association and the Royal College of Chiropractors.

I first began my chiropractic journey when I joined the military service in South Korea. My time serving in the air force was an invaluable and life changing experience for me where I found inspiration to dedicate myself into a career where I could aid others. Following the completion of my service I had the opportunity to travel to the UK. Whilst travelling, I was recommended by a relative to seek treatment at the AECC clinic for a bad shoulder I was suffering with. My treatment and first hand encounter of chiropractic at the AECC clinic was an eye opening experience.
After my successful treatment I returned back to Korea but chiropractic had already by then left a strong impression within me, which I could never forget.
After much discussion and consideration I decided to quit my course in electronic engineering and took a leap across the world, returning to the UK in hopes of becoming a chiropractor.
It was not an easy beginning, as I came speaking little to no English at all at that time and had to start out with intensive classes at a language school for 2 ½ years.
Following that I went on to complete an adult access course before finally enrolling into the AECC to begin my chiropractic degree. I’ve also had the unique opportunity of studying in both of the UK’s leading chiropractic institutions. After 3 years I successfully graduated with a first class degree and went on to complete my masters and internship at WIOC.
One of my life mottos is ‘prevention is always better than cure’ and I hope to instil that into the way I practice.
During my free time I enjoy working out at the gym, particularly focusing on functional exercises, which aims at correcting posture, muscle imbalance and prevention of future injuries.
