Dr. Angela Grove started Highgate Chiropractic in North London 8 years ago. She is a former professional ballet dancer and dance professor and is a Doctor of Chiropractic.
It was during her years as a dancer that she was exposed to the benefits of regular chiropractic care. She trained with many prestigious dance schools in the US and in Switzerland including Pacific Northwest Ballet (Seattle), School of American Ballet and the Alvin Ailey School (New York) and the Zurich Opera House Ballet School. She has danced with Pacific Northwest Ballet, Kansas City Ballet, Chicago City Ballet, Miami City Ballet, and St. Gallen Ballet (Switzerland). She graduated from Mercyhurst College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance. She was inspired by the chiropractors who took care of her throughout her dance career. She completed her post graduate studies in the USA at Life University and graduated with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree (Honours) in 2000. Dr. Grove has worked with many amateur and professional dancers around the USA and UK as well as many chiropractic clinics in the London area. She has worked backstage at the Royal Opera House, caring for dance companies during rehearsals and performances. She continues to offer this type of on-site care at London area venues.
In addition to Dr. Angela Grove’s work on dancers, she has cared for individuals and families in the London area since 2000. Since then, Dr. Grove has treated children, students, teenagers, moms-to-be, athletes, working professionals, the elderly and a range of others who experience everyday stress and strain. Her youngest patient was 7 days old and her oldest is 92 years young!
She is registered with the General Chiropractic Council of the UK and continues with her postgraduate and continuing professional development with seminars throughout Europe. She has worked with Dr. Marc Hudson, who has the largest chiropractic clinic in Europe. Dr. Hudson’s dedication and inspiration to the profession has encouraged Dr. Grove to spread the vital message that chiropractic changes lives and is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy. Dr. Hudson says, “If you have a spine and you are alive, then you need a chiropractor.”
Because of her first hand experience in the dance world, she offers a unique understanding of the injuries and physical demands of dancers and all athletes but is also experienced with caring for a range of people who suffer stress through long hours at computers, desk, sitting, working, lifting and regular day to day activities. “We are a result of our habits. Our bodies are very intelligent. They memorise poor posture, poor positions and repetitive habits. That is why we often development problems that go unnoticed. This is why everyone needs to get their spine checked ,” says Dr. Grove.
Dr. Grove offers a free consultation and information class in her city of London practice and north London chiropractic clinic. She is also available for on-site spinal or posture assessments for companies, dance groups, charities or health day events. “I help people perform better in the work place, on stage and at home,” says Grove.
Dr. Angela Grove can be reached at her city chiropractic clinic at 123 Cannon Street, London EC4N 5AX, near Bank, Cannon St, Monument stations or by calling 07904911499.
“Nothing is more valuable than your health or the health of your family. Your nerves and your spine control all aspects to your health. This is why you need to keep it healthy for life,” says Dr. Grove.
