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 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.

Being on the front desk means being the first and last impression of what the patient takes away from their visit at The Centre, which for her is one of the most important parts of a CA’s job – knowing patients have gone away with a positive experience.

When not, working Sharon is busy occupying her son by mostly playing football with him.
Her other hobbies involve gym/outdoor workouts, listening to music and reading.
