Elaine Cooke DC MRCC Memb.BCA
I have developed my skills in General Chiropractic care over the past 29 years. I graduated from the Anglo-European Chiropractic College, Bournemouth in 1989 and worked for a year in Winchester before taking up the reins of Homewood Chiropractic. In my spare time, I am an avid gardener and animal lover, with ponies and dogs forming part of my extended family. My practice is broad based and even after 29 years, enjoy every minute in Practice. I have a good referral network for patients with complex spinal and joint problems as these patients often need multi-disciplinary care. As a lifelong horse lover and rider, I also love to treat riders with simple, to complex injury and postural problems to improve horse and rider performance and comfort. Having recently lost over a year of my life to sudden illness, I have personal experience of pain and disability. I feel I bring a new level of awareness and empathy to others who have endured ill health too. I have recently become a member of the College of Medicine, and am delighted to belong to the Royal College of Chiropractors, both organisations having a commitment to clinical excellence and critical research.
Max Atkinson DC BSc (Chiro) MRCC
After graduating with Distinction from the Anglo-European Chiropractic College, Bournemouth in 1995, I worked in Salisbury for a year and then made my permanent move to Homewood in 1996. I have undertaken a diploma in Extremity Technique, and have also trained in dry needle therapy and the prescription of orthotics. My Practice is broad-based and I continue to follow an exhaustive programme of Continued Professional Development to keep me up to date and fully informed.
Lisa Ennor BSc (Hons) DC MRCC – Currently on Maternity until Feb 2021
I graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (WIOC) in 2006. It wasn’t long after my graduation that I joined Homewood and for the past ten years I have enjoyed being a part of the dynamic team that work at this clinic.
I am passionate about updating my knowledge and skills to remain at the forefront of the industry. My continued professional development focuses on learning about and researching new techniques that will enable a broad based treatment regime for patients. Most recently I have completed a number of courses including dry needling, fascia taping and basic to advanced rehabilitation, all of which I use on a daily basis in clinical practice to enhance patient rehabilitation and care.
In my spare time I love being active and take part in a number of outdoor pursuits. As a keen sportswoman, my hobbies include surfing, paddle boarding endurance running and coastal rowing. This love of sport has transferred to my chiropractic work where I currently treat a number of high performance athletes and teams to help support their pathways to Olympic and Paralympics competitions.
Lee Ayres DC, BSc (Hons) MChiro
I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 2005. As well as my interest in general Chirpractic practice, I have a particular interest in sports injuries in general, but especially the treatment of football and golf injuries. Over my career I have treated a number of professional athletes across a range of different sports and enjoy transferring these skills to the amateur sportsperson. In my spare time I enjoy playing football and golf and run regularly.
Jo Kitchener BSc (Hons) MChiro
Following my first degree in Physiology and Nutrition, I graduated with distinction from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic winning awards for academic excellence and best research project. I was also awarded ‘student of the year’ for 3 years running – the only student to ever do so. I enjoy treating a wide range of people from all age groups, and have a keen interest in sports related injuries and developing plans for rehabilitation, that address the root cause of the complaint. I have a background in sports and have been a member of the Junior Olympic Ice Dance Team and a British and European Wushu Martial Arts Gold medallist. Whilst I no longer compete, I still enjoy training in Tai Chi as well as hiking and swimming. In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and 2 dogs.
Joy Harrison MChiro
Since graduating from Anglo European College of Chiropractic, I first worked in a busy practice in Surrey which enabled me to treat a wide variety of conditions from simple in nature to the more complex. I joined Homewood in August 2020 and am really happy to work with a Practice who has Patients with such a broad range of conditions to treat. I love looking after people and getting to know them and their families. In my spare time I keep fit with aerial acrobatics and walking my dog. I love to cook and enjoy being outdoors back home in Dorset.
