Meet Dr Austin Lawrence (Chiropractor)

Chiropractor Abingdon, Dr. AustinExperiencing the Effects of Chiropractic

“I first become interested in chiropractic whilst at college studying my sports science course. I had the misfortune (or maybe it was fortune as it led to the career I love now) of spending the first year of the course constantly injuring myself. I tore my left hamstring and groin at least a half dozen times each as well as injuring my right shoulder.”

Dr Austin Lawrence (Chiropractor) started having chiropractic adjustments from Dr Chris Perkins, a tutor and physio who had just completed his chiropractic degree. “My groin and hamstrings injuries and shoulder issues quickly became a thing of the past.”

Embarking on the Chiropractic Path

During the second year of the course, Dr Austin Lawrence (Chiropractor) did a treatment and management of injuries module through the FA. “Dr Perkins saw potential in me, took me under his wing and convinced me to turn down several offers from universities to study sports science and train to become a chiropractor instead. I ended up working with him for 3 1/2 seasons at Oxford City FC whilst I was studying to be a chiropractor.”
