Who We Are?

SpinePlus Woodford is headed up by SpinePlus Partner Robert Shanks & was established in 2015. Robert graduated as an Osteopath in 2000 and subsequently furthered his education with several postgraduate courses, notably in medical acupuncture, electrotherapy and clinical Pilates (the latter with the renowned Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute).

As well as treating sports injuries and tension headaches, Robert’s other main area of special interest is the management of patients with chronic low back pain and neck pain associated with disc problems.

Our SpinePlus Clinic Woodford Team

Here’s an example, you can use some of it but it must be different for each one. Robert Qualified as an Osteopath in 2000, however he was strongly influenced by his mother, Ann, a Chartered Physiotherapist and soon after graduation established Spine Plus’ first clinic in Chigwell with the vision of offering expert treatment for a range of musculoskeletal disroders that incorporated the key benefits of both professions. Early into his career Robert realised traditional physiotherapy and osteopathy did relaitvely little for pateints with sciatica and related disorders due to bulging or degenerative discs in the Spine. After initial successes with offering mechanical traction at the Chigwell clinic, Robert wanted to do even more for these patients and became one of the first clinicians in the UK to offer an advanced form of compterised traction called IDD Therapy (IDD Therapy is currently one of the most successful and fasted growing forms of therapy for pateints with degenerative discs in the spine and is currently available at three of our clinics). With additional qualifications in medical acupuncture, electrotherapy and clinical Pilates (the latter with the renowned Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute), Robert is part of the driving force behind our multidisciplinary approach.
Juan has been a highly valued member of the team since early 2013. Before qualifying as an osteopath in 2013 Juan was a highly successful personal trainer and massage therapist. This experience has given Juan an added dimension as an osteopath and he has become popular amongst patients seeking a “strong-hands” approach. As with all Spine Plus practitioners Juan is qualified in medical acupuncture which he often incorporates into his treatments with great effect. Juan is fluent in Spanish (as well as English).
Lucy joined the team in 2011 after graduation from the British School of Osteopathy. This was shortly followed by postgraduate Medical Acupuncture Training with the British Medical Acupuncture Society. Lucy has also undergone our in house training in spinal MRI anaylysis and has established herself a highly popular and competent therapist especially with regard to complex back and neck pain problems.
After studying for a Bachelor of Science in Osteopath, Sam went on gain a masters degree in Osteopathy, for which he and gained a distinction, finishing top of his class! Sam joined the Spine Plus team in 2015 and quickly gained a deep understanding and appreciation for the approach we offer with regards to MRI interpretation and how this strongly influences the right course of action for patients with back and neck pain disorders. Sam is passionate about his chosen profession, Sam not has a wealth of knowledge but also expert hands on skills, making him an extremely competent all round practitioner.
