I am Manuel and I was born in the Philippines. Graduated Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Liceo de Cagayan University (Philippines) in March 2006. I practiced in my hometown as Community Health Nurse and Maternal Delivery Nurse at the same time.
In November 2008 I migrated to the U.K. and worked in nursing nomes in Weston-Super-Mare. In June 2013 I began living and working in Bristol as a Team Leader of a specialised unit in which we cared for elderly people with learning disabilities.
In 2014, I began my Master of Chiropractic degree at University of South Wales whilst at the same time, working as bank staff at North Bristol National Health Service Trust (Southmead) since August 2015.
The neurology ward was my favourite. Here, I cared for patient's with different neurological disorders and witnessed first-hand the patients’ experiences with the conventional treatment approach and this made me first ask the question: is there a non-surgical option for them?
My interest with Chiropractic medicine flourished when I saw an elderly lady who had been suffering with Parkinson’s Disease for 10 years start to feel a lot more comfortable after seeing her Chiropractor, whilst ultimately there is no cure for Parkinson's at this present time it was wonderful seeing her feel better.
I registered with General Chiropractic Council last 2018, a member of Scottish Chiropractic Association and I have also obtained Licentiate status to the Royal College of Chiropractors.
I thoroughly enjoy staying up to date on the latests research and my own research was presented in Hungary through European Chiropractic Union in July 2018.
