Meet Robert van Schalkwyk, Chiropractor, Clinic Director

Chiropractor Fulham, Robert Van SchalkwykChiropractic found me rather than me finding chiropractic. I suffered a serious martial arts injury when I was 17. Conventional methods unfortunately could not help my lower back condition which was very debilitating. I was living on a cocktail of pain-relieving medication and I could not walk for more than 20 yards before my lower back locked up and pain shot down my right leg. I was told my only option was surgery which I was not keen for at the age of 17.

My Dad suggested I try his chiropractor who had helped him with his chronic headaches. He couldn’t find relief from his headaches and became depressed. A family friend suggested he try chiropractic, and this helped him immensely. After 3 months of intense care, I was back in the martial arts studio and back on the rugby field. I was able to avoid surgery and I no longer needed pain medication. I felt I had my life back and I was back to my former self. It was at this point I decided to help others, like I had been helped, and I became a Chiropractor. To this day I receive regular chiropractic care to keep myself functional and active.

Chiropractor Fulham, Flippo

Meet Filippo Varetta, Chiropractor

Filippo graduated as a chiropractor in 2015—a career path he was called to after experiencing Chiropractic firsthand. Years ago, Filippo suffered from a shoulder injury but he didn’t experience much relief using conventional care. After getting his back examined by a chiropractor, he pointed out a curve in his spine known as scoliosis. After receiving care from this chiropractor, Filippo’s shoulder improved, and he knew he wanted to help others just like he was helped. Today, he enjoys helping patients of all walks of life unlock their true health potential.

Outside of the practice, Filippo enjoys playing sports like water polo, and traveling when he’s able.

Meet Kiran Gill, Chiropractor

Kiran’s interest in Chiropractic developed through personal experience. With a history of being very active in sports, from playing soccer, tennis, horse riding and yoga since a young age, Kiran always had an interest in the human body. After graduating from her first degree (law and psychology at York University Toronto), she started managing a group of multi-integrated healthcare offices in Toronto, Canada where she not only began regular chiropractic treatment to stay fit herself, but also learned how effectively chiropractic improved the quality of life for those who were suffering from chronic pain and other health problems.

Following this experience Kiran undertook the 5 years of full time study of chiropractic at the Southern California University of Health Sciences and qualified as a Chiropractor with a Doctorate in Chiropractic degree in 2010. Since then, she has been working with patients of all ages and physical abilities, including professional athletes, stunt men and women and lead actors/actresses who have sustained injuries while filming.

Meet Charlotta Binder, Chiropractor

Chiropractor Fulham, CharlotaAfter receiving chiropractic care following a sports injury, Charlotta was inspired not only by the results of her treatments, but by the capability and function of the human body. This encouraged her to pursue a career as a Chiropractor to help people in the way she had been.

Charlotta graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth and enjoys treating patients of all walks of life. She has a particular interest in functional patient management and rehabilitation and combines chiropractic adjusting techniques with a variety of soft tissue release. These include IASTM (Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation) and Voodoo Muscle Floss techniques to assist restoration of postural structures as well as function of supportive tissues.

Charlotta believes in not only addressing the pain alone but other physiological stresses to the body, helping to ensure long lasting health benefits. She promotes these ethos in her personal life, too, by combining an active lifestyle with pilates to ensure mind and body are in sync.

Chiropractor Fulham, Jordan

Meet Jordan Frias-Metcalfe, Chiropractor

Meet Susan Strevens, Chiropractor

Susan joins the The Centre team with a passion for helping patients of all walks of life unlock their true health potential, especially expectant mums and athletes— Susan worked extensively with professional rugby clubs early on in her career.

When Susan was younger, she suffered from debilitating migraine headaches at the age of 14. Initially seeking a medical approach, she was placed on a series of medications that she had to rely on daily.
Eventually, Susan found chiropractic and learned about the role of the spine and nervous system in the overall function of the body. After a few adjustments, her migraines were so much under control that she no longer had to take her pain medication daily, instead only requiring it monthly. This was an incredible lifestyle change that set her on the path toward choosing chiropractic as a career as she understood the benefits firsthand.

Today, Susan enjoys working with patients of all ages, helping them to understand the power of chiropractic care and how it can improve the overall function of your body. She prides herself on being friendly and open with patients, aiming to explain the benefits and make them an educated partner in their care. She promises to always be honest and keep your best interest at the forefront of every session—at the end of the day, it’s your health that matters most.

Outside of the Practice

When Susan isn’t changing lives in the practice, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son, Charlie. The family loves to travel when they’re able, and Dr Susan likes to explore new meals in the kitchen.
