Dr Patrick Ryder (MChiro)

Doctor & Master of Chiropractic

Patrick graduated from the prestigious Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in Wales after five years of study with the title Master of Chiropractic title and he has also since been awarded by his peers a special achievement award for his contribution to chiropractic.Through his younger years and teens Patrick knew it was his vocation in life to help people, with a long family history in healthcare he had observed the need for an area that was an inclusive encompassing area of healthcare, that didn’t involve just treating the disease or aches with medicines. Patrick has been lucky enough to be able to spend multiple hours in orthopedic, geriatric and general medical wards to understand the benefits and limitations that the medical model of healthcare holds. This is where he became aware of Chiropractic – a multidisciplinary natural safe approach to helping and healing the body and restoring it too its full natural potential.

Patrick has worked in busy clinics that have allowed him to treat a range of patients, from expectant mothers to small children all the way through to his oldest patient of 85 and everything in between. He has a keen interest in sports and performance injuries and optimisation as well as acute and chronic pain conditions.

Dr Gemma Bailey

(Bsc (Hons) Chiro)

From as early as I can remember I have had a keen interest in health care and I hoped that one day I would have a career where I could help people improve the quality of their lives. During my teenage years I developed psoriasis and unfortunately found that western medicine was of little help. It was at this time that I started to look into complementary medicines and came across Chiropractic. It amazed me that by using completely natural methods Chiropractors could achieve great results especially with musculoskeletal complaints so I decided to pursue a career in Chiropractic.In 1999 I attended the Welsh Institute of Chiropractors at the University of Glamorgan in Wales. I graduated in 2003 with an honours degree in Chiropractic. On graduation I worked in the UK for three years – during this time I was lucky enough to gain experience working alongside GP’s in a busy city centre surgery. In 2006 I moved to Ireland and worked at the Fitzwilliam Health Clinic since it opened in March 2007.Over the past 7 years I have attended seminars throughout Europe and have gained additional experience in several techniques that help me treat a wide variety of conditions and patients from children to the elderly. I have also gained a keen interest in nutrition, spinal rehabilitation and foot mechanics. This enables me to achieve my treatment goals with patients, which is to find the cause of their problems, resolve the causes in order to prevent relapses in the future.In 2003 I was given the opportunity to pass on some of my experience to students at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Dublin. This went well and I now enjoy lecturing for the college, teaching students anatomy, physiology and pathology.
