Dr Maria Madge is an experienced chiropractor, with a loyal client base in Norfolk and Suffolk. She takes a holistic approach to treatment, drawing on extensive training in chiropractic and other disciplines.
“I feel it’s important to treat each patient individually according to what they need – allowing you time to understand me and for me to understand you.”
Having achieved a BSc in Biochemistry, Maria completed her Masters in Chiropractic in Bournemouth in 2008. The five-year course at Bournemouth is generally recognised as one of the best in Europe, with an in-depth focus on anatomy and physiology. In this respect, the course gave Maria a more exhaustive training in physiology than most GPs have.
In addition to learning the core of chiropractic, she received training in the taking and analysis of X-Rays and MRI scans and how to diagnose from them.
Having struggled with back pain herself, Maria came across Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), a gentle and non-invasive approach to chiropractic that was not taught in the Masters course, but which can be extremely effective for patients with complex issues. Having found its effects profound on her own back problems, she began a second five-year training programme in 2007 to augment her chiropractic degree with an SOT qualification.
In addition to SOT, Maria has supplemented her Masters in Chiropractic with courses in Craniopathy, TMJ, Applied Kinesiology, Nutrition, Paediatrics and Birth Trauma.
Working with Children and Infants
Cranial issues in babies are common after birth, especially if the birth was traumatic or involved interventions such as forceps or caesarean section. Maria uses Craniopathy and SOT as gentle, non-invasive treatment that works to reinstate normal cranial function and to balance nerve function.
Maria has treated new-borns within minutes of birth, and is trained and experienced in working with the very smallest members of our families.
Working as a Chiropractor in Norfolk & Suffolk
After qualifying, Maria spent two years working in an established chiropractic clinic in Norfolk, before setting off on her own in 2010 as an independent chiropractor. In a short time, Maria has built a solid and loyal client base in her clinics in Norfolk and Suffolk.
