Jo McCarey, the founder of Saffron Walden Chiropractic Clinic, graduated with distinction from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 1995 and was honoured to be named that year’s best academic student and best clinician as well as Valor Dictorian. Jo initially opened the Saffron Walden Chiropractic Clinic within the Borough Lane GP Surgery in Saffron Walden in 2001, and moved it to its present home at First floor 13, Hill Street, Saffron Walden in 2004. She considers herself very fortunate to have found a career which she is extremely passionate about. She loves meeting and working with people and making a difference to their lives.
Her special interest lies in Chiropractic care for pregnant women, babies and children. Completing post graduate courses each year to further her expertise she helps expectant mums stay active and comfortable during their pregnancies and helps them prepare their bodies for labour. Treating unsettled babies has become the mainstay of her work in recent years, particularly those who have had difficult births. Her aim is to help mothers and babies to have the best start they can. She is passionate about treating children and recommends Chiropractic sessions early in childhood, preferably from birth. She believes this may help to identify musculoskeletal pain in childhood leading into adulthood. She also believes that by having a healthy functioning spine and cranium, children may benefit generally in a variety of ways.
Jo also enjoys working with patients with long standing chronic conditions, when Chiropractic care is often the last resort. She finds that making a difference in this group of people’s lives is an extremely worthwhile way to spend her time.
