Stuart Lawrence Biography
I have been around horses and animals since a child and realised from many years treating humans, that small problems when not treated can become more serious requiring invasive treatment.
I qualified as a Chiropractor in 1999 and have worked with many 1000’s of humans over the years.
I have spent much of my life outside enjoying hobbies including shooting, fishing and working on my allotment in Southend-on-Sea. I took up riding again in 2015 after a gap of too many years to comfortably disclose, which brought back many memories of a happy childhood.
I have also kept and worked dogs (although not particularly well if you ask my good friends) for several years, in particular German pointers and I passionately love being out with my dogs Kaiser and Star.
It was whilst talking to a Chiropractic friend in 2015 about some of the issues of arthritis and a general slowing down of Eva, my old liver and white pointer, that I started to think about training as a Veterinary Chiropractor.
I chose Options for Animals UK in Newcastle as it was the first and only RAMP accredited provider in the UK and one of only three RAMP recognised educational providers. I am now qualified at Professional Diploma level and have decided to start a PhD to improve the lack of awareness in the veterinary and animal world on the effects of occlusal issues and the jaw and the effects on the stomatognathic system and subsequently posture and long term degenerative conditions. I’ve also passed the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association Exam, giving me membership of the prestigious British Veterinary Chiropractic Association, the gold standard in Veterinary Chiropractic in Britain and the rest of Europe. As of March 2018 I was voted onto the board of the BVCA. Through continuing professional development I will maintain my expertise and strive to be at the forefront of research to benefit you and your pets health ensuring I can do the best I can for you and your family!
As the only RAMP and Animal Chiropractic Gold standard BVCA registered Veterinary Chiropractor in Essex I have made it my goal to help your beloved furry family member back to a better state of health and wellness and lead a more comfortable and happy life helping to reduce the need to have to rely on pain relieving arthritis or other such medications.
