Nicola Machin D.C.
Nicola’s experience of chiropractic treatment began after a horse riding fall left her with low back and leg pain. The benefits of this treatment inspired her to apply for the Master of Chiropractic degree program at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and 5 years later she graduated with merit.
Nicola has been working at the Colchester Chiropractic Centre since 2010 where she has been able to put into practice what she learnt during her training, as well a expanding her knowledge both through discussions with colleagues and from attending professional development courses. Nicola works with patients of all ages and uses a range of techniques tailored to each individual case. She finds it satisfying to help patients return to their normal activities, in the same way that chiropractic care has, and still does, allow her to continue with her horse riding.
