Dr Maria Madge

Having graduated with a BSC in Biochemistry, Maria began her five years study towards a Masters in Chiropractic in Bournemouth, which she completed in 2008. The course at Bournemouth is generally recognised as one of the best in Europe, with an in-depth focus on anatomy and physiology. In this respect, Maria's chiropractic training gave her a more exhaustive training in physiology than most GPs have. In addition to learning the core of chiropractic, she received training in the taking and analysis of X-Rays and MRI scans and how to diagnose from them.

During her second year of studying, Maria herself was struggling with a back problem and came across Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT). This gentle approach to chiropractic was not taught as part of the Masters programme, so Maria began her five year training in SOT to augment her chiropractic qualification in 2007.
