Meet the team in the Newcastle Clinic

Meet our team of excellent chiropractors in Newscastle under Lyme and Stoke on Trent.

Dr Robert Finn

Dr Robert Finn DCI qualified as a chiropractor over 25 years ago from the Anglo European College of Chiropractors (the oldest and largest chiropractic college in Europe).

I am very passionate about chiropractic and helping patients reach their health goals. Having treated and helped thousands of patients with their musculoskeletal problems ranging from neck, back, sports injuries over the years, I decided to advance to more complicated neurological or severe conditions such as migraines and headache, dizziness/vertigo (related to neck problems), nervous system problems.

In January 2018, I passed my Clinical Neuroscience exams and I am now the only Board Certified #Chiropractic #Neurologist in the Midlands. Out of 3200 chiropractors in the UK, there are fewer than 20 Neurology Diplomates who have achieved this. For the last 2 years I have been studying with the Carrick Institute, who are the leading authority in the training for chiropractors and physicians in postgraduate clinical neurology

This area of science is absolutely fascinating and it fits in extremely well with the ethos of chiropractic that we treat the whole body and allow it to repair itself without pharmaceutical or surgical intervention (until absolutely necessary). I have spent hundreds of hours learning about stimulating the brain to try and address a dysfuntion. I am looking forward to treating patients as we continue to get more referrals to help patients with more complex problems.

When I am not spending time reading and studying, I enjoy spending time with my lovely girls, playing tennis, walking, astronomy and pondering about the “bigger picture”.

Dr. Mohamad Kammouh

I have recently joined the team at Newcastle and Stoke. I completed my Masters in Chiropractic in 2014 and worked in a number of clinics in Australia. I sat my test of competence exam (an exam that the GCC require foreign (ie non-EEA) chiropractors to take before they can be called chiropractors) last year. In Australia, I also taught anatomy to medical students at Sydney and Macquarie Universities.

I discovered chiropractic when I sustained an injury whilst working as a firefighter and as a chiropractor, I have a special interest in neurology, sports injuries and chronic pain management. I also really enjoy treating shoulder problems!

I work both in the Newcastle and Stoke clinic with most of my time being spent in the Stoke clinic.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with my wife and exploring the UK.

 

Wojciech Kotlenga

I studied and qualified in Physiotherapy in Poland and studied Sports Massage Therapy at Newcastle College. I work in the clinic 3 days a week.

 

Maggie Barrow

Maggie BarrowI am the clinic’s Senior Chiropractic Assistant and have worked in the clinic for over 12 years which seems to have absolutely flown by.

I have lived in the Stoke/Newcastle area for most of my adult life. Previously working in the property and legal sector but always had a keen interest in fitness and health, particularly in natural remedies.

It was a friend of mine who noticed the vacancy and said “I have seen the perfect job for you”. I consider myself very lucky to be involved in being part of helping change people’s lives for the better and watching them return to health and fitness. There have been many changes here (progress I think it is called) and many more to come as we strive to improve on all levels.

There are lots of elements of my job which I really enjoy, particularly meeting all the different people and it’s great to get to know them and share their highs and lows as friendships are forged as well as on a professional level.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, walking, music and dancing, reading mostly detective novels, visiting stately homes, the odd glass of wine and of course chocolate. I’m trying to cultivate a liking for dark chocolate as it is more healthy for you (work in progress).

Sarah-Jane Hill

I have recently joined the team and I feel I have settled in extremely well – everybody is so friendly and welcoming! I still have a lot to learn but I am very much looking forward to expanding my knowledge to the world of chiropractic care.

Previously,  I have been an Events Planner at the world famous Pinewood Studios where I organised all kinds of events such as wrap parties for onsite productions/films to corporate fund raising events.

I have recently relocated to Cheshire from London – The main reason for the move was to be closer to family as they live in Stoke-On-Trent. I have now purchased our first house with my partner and we are currently in the process of redecorating. Cheshire/Staffordshire is very different to London but we couldn’t be happier!

Ne’ema Bowen

Ne'ema BowenI have worked in the clinic for over 10 years and as a Practice Manager my role is to ensure that when a patient calls and comes to one of our clinics they receive excellent service and care in a fairly relaxed but professional atmosphere. Alongside Maggie and other Chiropractic Assistants, we are always striving to ensure that each and every individual patient is welcomed and has our full attention.

It is always fulfilling to see so many people improve and attain better health. I understand the agony that some patients feel when they have back pain or neck pain as I have also experienced it. I have seen the benefits of chiropractic not only when I have “pulled” my back but also for my own children. I am an advocate of not just the treatment but of the nutritional and lifestyle advice that is given by our practitioners.

I try to balance work and family life and love to exercise when time allows. Reading, occassionally teaching Zumba, learning about wine and gardening are some of my hobbies.
