A small introduction

About Christine

Christine Bakker grew up in Holland in a small town near Gouda (where the cheese comes from).

She first got introduced to the magic of Chiropractic through her father. When she was only a little girl he developed a back problem which was initially mild and so he went the usual medical route that people take when they are in pain and don’t yet know about Chiropractic. Long story short, after seeing many different practitioners, many different types of drugs he was told he needed surgery as he was told he had a disc herniation which was pressing on a nerve.

How it all came to be…

First contact with Chiropractic

All I knew at the time was that he was in a lot of pain and that made a big impact on me.

When my mother (and she deserves the credit for this!) heard the news she was determined to try everything else first to avoid surgery for my dad. She found a local Chiropractor and within a few weeks he was feeling a lot better, within a few months he fully recovered and is now going for regular check ups to keep his spine and nervous system healthy.

Having seen the devastating impact that problems like this can have, it inspired Christine to set out on her own journey to become a Chiropractor.

About Christines

Education

She completed the 5 year study at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and ended up with a Master of Chiropractic (MChiro) degree, graduating in 2008.

She then worked as an associate in various different clinics over the years in Suffolk, Norfolk and eventually Kent and has now opened up her own clinic in Petts Wood, near Orpington and Bromley.

Outside of work Christine likes to be active with some of her favourite activities being surfing, rock climbing, going out on her bike into the country side and of course her absolute favourite ball sport: Korfball which she has played on and off since she was 8 years old.

Socialising with friends and seeing her family is also high on the agenda and she goes back to Holland to visit them as often as she can.

Since the start of her Chiropractic journey she has gradually discovered how Chiropractic is so much more than just helping people combat their symptoms. She is really excited to help families in every aspect of their journey back to health, which can be a real challenge in this day and age.
