Who are we?

Meet The Team

Meet the team members behind Vital Family Chiropractic and how we work together to give you the service you deserve.

Abigail Grace MChiro DC  Chiropractor

Dr Abie was first introduced to Chiropractic when her mum had terrible problems walking. Despite seeing many private Consultants it was only when she tried Chiropractic, she healed and got her life back. This inspired both Abie’s brother and herself to become Chiropractors; they both qualified in 2011. She has worked in Bournemouth, Ashford, Central London, as well in her own Chiro Clinic in a Yoga Studio, before taking a sabbatical at the end of Dec 2019.

Dr Abie’s favourite thing about Chiropractic is the wellness aspects. She is passionate about everything wellbeing, it’s a massive part of her lifestyle, enhancing all her senses and experiences; she is constantly discovering different tools, techniques and products.

In her spare time she loves hanging out with a Pomeranian called Rupert, yoga, creating online content, and learning/experiencing new things from snowboarding and fishing to her recent interest in books on communication and trying out recipes from the ‘Minimalist Baker’. Dr Abie is looking forward to meeting you!


Nicky Hanks – Chiropractic Assistant

After 25 years of working for a local government agency, Nicky was ready for a career change. She was a client of Dr Christine’s and having had first-hand experience of Chiropractic care she was very excited to join the team in September 2017.

She finds the best part is seeing the improvement in our clients’ health and hearing the positive comments they make after their adjustments.

Nicky also loves to create our window displays with Syd the Skeleton and organising the children’s colouring competitions. Outside of the office, she runs a crafting group which supports local charities and enjoys walking with her husband Andy and dog Tamba.


Louise Walpole – Chiropractic Assistant

Louise joined the Vital Family Chiropractic team in June 2018 and absolutely loves her role as Chiropractic Assistant. She has realised there is so much more to it than just the admin part. As the front of house, she really loves being part of our clients’ chiropractic journey and the improvements to their health, no matter how big or small. She also loves doing our blackboard and wipe boards, filling them with interesting chiropractic facts and quotes.

Before joining VFC she worked as a massage therapist and has always had a keen interest in the human body and how it works, so she feels her role here is really helping to expand her knowledge. Louise is happily married and has two teenage children who keep her very busy. In her spare time, she likes swimming, walking and going to concerts.
