Meet the Team – Kempston

CHIROPRACTIC

Esther Kong – DC MChiro

I first became interested in studying chiropractic in my early 20’s after experiencing severe back pain which left me unable to move for nearly 2 weeks. After trying all manner of conventional treatments I was introduced to a chiropractor and after only a few treatments I was back on my feet again and feeling much better. I was so impressed with how chiropractic helped me that I decided to study at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth gaining a Masters degree in Chiropractic.

I enjoy working with people of all ages and draw from a variety of techniques to help alleviate pain. My main priority is to identify the root cause of the complaint as soon as possible and then tailor my treatment to best suit your needs. Identifying and treating the root cause as early as possible increases the chances of success and reduces the chance of the injury recurring in future.

I am passionate about chiropractic and believe it can help everyone. I am especially interested in treating children and feel they can really benefit from gentle and safe chiropractic care.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you back to optimum health.
