Chiropractic degrees in Australia are 5-year full-time, and now includes a Masters when complete. Included in the study arena is radiography and radiological diagnosis which enable registered chiropractors to take, analyse and diagnose X-Ray films.

Natural, gentle, considered techniques are employed at Dundee, Fife, and Edinburgh Chiropractic Clinics. Having been a migraine sufferer in the past, JL Brassington is well aware of the emotion, physical and chemical causes of illness. Experiencing the benefits of well-educated chiropractors and their various approaches led her to study chiropractic in order to help those in her community.

In 2008, JL Brassington graduated valedictorian of the coveted International Chiropractors Association post-graduate degree in clinical paediatrics and pregnancy, which is a board exam status in the USA. Through this degree, Dr Brassington gained expertise in the Webster Technique, along with other pregnancy and paediatric specific treatments. Having a strong interest in all age groups health, it is imperative to understand the mechanisms of disease, health, wellness and preventable sickness. With more strain on our lifestyles through poor dietary habits, sedentary work environments and relationship stresses, our need for integrative healthcare and achieving best outcome measures are vital. Consequently, chiropractic is the largest growing healthcare group in the world.

Colin Rankin started his working life as a microbiologist, after graduating from the University of Dundee, Scotland. During this study, he discovered the power of chiropractic to keep him well and optimally functioning not only during his university life but also beyond.

So inspired by the benefits of chiropractic, Colin made a significant decision to alter his career path, to become a chiropractor himself. Colin graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, England in 2007. He used his qualification to realise his passion for moving back to his homeland in Scotland. He started his chiropractic career working in Stirling for Wight Chiropractic, before establishing his own clinics in Stirling and Musselburgh, which have been successfully running now for nine and a half years.

In 2016 Colin completed his nutrition qualification and has, for the last three years, been providing nutrition coaching for both nutrition clients (specifically those struggling with Inflammatory Bowel Disease) and his chiropractic patients. He is now looking forward to bringing his enthusiasm, professional opinion and expert technique delivery to help people achieve their health goals to Edinburgh Chiropractic Clinic.

Away from the clinic, Colin can usually be found in the gym, in the hills or in the kitchen. He loves travelling and experiencing new cultures. During the last couple of years, Colin has concentrated on exploring his own country and finding out what wonders Scotland has to offer!

Thursday 09:30 – 12:00

From a young age, Morgan played competitive football and softball, allowing her to observe and develop a curiosity for the nuances of human performance firsthand. She eventually earned a scholarship to play top-level softball in university, where an injury led her to seek care from multiple medical professionals, including her first experience with a chiropractor. After one visit with a chiropractor, she was able to return to the playing field. Knowing she wanted to work in the medical field from an early age, Morgan was now able to see her mindset and athletic experience fitting perfectly into the chiropractic profession.

Morgan completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic and Masters in Sports Science and Rehabilitation degrees with honours at Logan University, located in St. Louis, Missouri. She also earned two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in Nutritional Sciences and the other in Human Biology. Upon completing these degrees, Morgan joined a predominantly maternity and paediatric practice, located in Phoenix, Arizona. She then moved to her home town of St. Louis to begin her own chiropractic and functional medicine practice. Morgan is now established, in Edinburgh, Fife, and Dundee, where she enjoys spreading her passion for living in optimal health and her knowledge of the human body.

As a lifelong athlete, Morgan enjoys taking her competitive spirit to the football pitch and the golf course, as well as coaching athletes on the proper movements in sport to prevent injury and to maintain joint and tissue health for longevity in competition. To continue developing her understanding of sport-specific movement, Morgan has certified in Titleist Performance Institute’s (TPI) Level I Golf certification.

Morgan understands what it means to be sidelined in sports, work, and life, from her own experience of athletic injuries and illness. These personal experiences gave her the knowledge and wisdom to heal holistically and to know what it takes to return to wellness. Practicing a variety of adjusting, soft tissue, and rehabilitation techniques, Morgan is capable of adapting treatment to your unique preferences and needs—whether your sport is golf, chasing your children, or working hard at your desk.

Morgan is also certified by the General Chiropractic Council and is a member of the Scottish Chiropractic Association.
