Undertaking her PhD, investigating the role of combined midwifery and chiropractic care for breastfeeding difficulties.
Amy was first introduced to chiropractic as a patient at 12 years of age. The changes she experienced in the quality of her life were profound, and after learning more about chiropractic, it became the obvious career choice. At the AECC, Amy developed a passion for paediatric chiropractic and research, and was fortunate to be able to focus on chiropractic care for babies during her MSc.
In practice, Amy enjoys working with people of all ages to reach and sustain their individual goals for a healthier and happier life. This involves working together in a holistic manner, including identifying areas within nutrition, exercise and stress management which will support the changes made with treatment. For several years, Amy has particularly focussed on paediatric chiropractic and has undertaken extensive post-graduate study.
Amy’s research for her MSc developed a parent-reported questionnaire which focussed on common problems of infancy, including crying, sleeping and feeding difficulties. Amy remains active in research and is now undertaking her PhD, investigating the role of combined midwifery and chiropractic care for breastfeeding difficulties.
