Originally from Canada, Bryan has an honours degree in Health and Sport Sciences and a Doctor of Chiropractic. After a few years practising in Canada, he made the leap overseas to Ireland where he ran a group of leading Chiropractic health centres for nine years. Bryan moved to Cambridge in 2012, where he completed a Masters Degree at Cambridge University. After a one year sabbatical in Calgary, he returned to the UK and settled in Putney with his wife and two dogs.
Dr Bryan is a highly experienced chiropractor in all areas of family practice. He also has a specialised background and passion for helping some of the world’s top athletes recover from injury and achieve optimal sports performance. Dr Bryan is experienced with patients of all ages and stages, from young children to the elderly. It is not unusual to find Bryan adjusting a baby one moment and a professional rugby player the next.
Bryan blends advanced expertise in spinal, pelvic and extremity adjusting with leading techniques in myofascial release and functional neurology. He is certified in both Active Release Techniques (ART) and Trigenics protocols. Dr Bryan believes that pain relief is only the first step in the patient journey, and that chiropractic’s primary purpose is to restore function and balance to injured areas, as well as to the nervous system and body in general.
A former semi-pro footballer and Cambridge Light Blue ice hockey player, Bryan now dons the familiar red, white and blue of Team GB’s Masters Inline Hockey Team. Outside of clinic, Bryan can be found cuddling pugs in his spare time whilst contemplating how to make the world a better and happier place.
“Now in my nineteenth year of practice, I continue to be amazed by the impact Chiropractic makes to the lives of my patients. As a competitive athlete himself, I know first hand what it is like to be sidelined with pain or injury and just how important having a healthy and well-tuned body is to all areas of life.”Bryan Thirsk
