Dr. Imran Shah
Masters in Chiropractic (UK)
My journey to chiropractic began after being a keen tennis and cricket player where I noticed injuries affecting my level of performance. These were diagnosed as “growing pains” at the time and only after a visit to a chiropractor that I realised my problems were actually related to my spine and he looked at things biomechanically rather than just trying to ‘fix’ the symptoms. Not only was I able to return to a high level of performance (representing my University at tennis) but it made me realise how powerful the chiropractic adjustment can be in helping my nervous system function efficiently.
I went on to study a four year master’s degree at the Wesh Insititute of Chiropractic (WIOC) in South Wales after initially completing my biomedical material science BMedSc (Hons) at the University of Birmingham. Following graduation, I have gained experience working with professional athletes in an acute Sports injury clinic in a multidisciplinary team consisting of (Osteopath, physiotherapist and podiatrist). I then went on to specialise in chiropractic care which taught me the importance of prevention and maintaining optimum health. I have also done locum work in London which has helped me treat a wide variety of muscular skeletal conditions. I am a registered member of the GCC (General chiropractic council) and the British Chiropractic Association (BCA). I have recently spent time observing a clinic in Dubai and in Singapore working under the Chiropractic First Group witnessing some of the great results they have working with families and people of all ages.
My personal interests include playing tennis regularly and competing in the Warwickshire leagues for my club, functional rehabilitation, strengthening and conditioning and giving my patients nutritional advice where necessary.
