JOSH SPARKS - CHIROPRACTOR
Raised by a family of sailors, I have always loved the outdoors. I raced competitively through my teens and then found joy in various forms of outdoor activities – windsurfing, surfing, skating, swimming, cycling, climbing and slack-lining.
As my movement increased so did my injuries – this is what lead me to an interest in healing and body awareness. The knowledge of a chiropractor is indispensable and their ability to teach a patient about their own body inspired me to pursue a career in this field. Around the same time I began my studies of chiropractic, my enthusiasm for yoga and rehabilitation developed. I now consider myself obsessed with functionality, optimum health and well-being.
2016 I went to Rishikesh, India to study my first yoga course, 2019 I graduated with a Master of Chiropractic Degree and returned to India to gain my 500HR certification.
The nervous system has a rule – if you don’t use it, you lost it. The human body should be able to squat, lunge, push, pull, fold, twist and MOVE! Chiropractic brings back the movement and yoga maintains it.
I believe in using various modalities suited to the patient, whether that be a chiropractic adjustment, movement advice, muscle release, meditation, medical acupuncture or kinesiology taping.
I now wholeheartedly appreciate the multifactorial aspects of pain and it’s influence on the mind. The goal of my treatment is to not just take someone out of pain, but to bring them to a sense of balance and the best version of themselves.
