Well done to Jenny Eagle for winning our quiz and a full course of 10 treatments at the clinic! Keep your eyes open for future competitions and giveaways at Chiropractic Dubai!
For current and new patients undergoing treatment we will be offering a free foot scan and a 25% discount on our custom insoles at the clinic. The doctors do not just prescribe these for flat feet or other foot problems. They can help in the treatment of low back pain, headaches, neck pain and a whole range of symptoms. We provide foot scanning at the clinic and have a range of Pelvic stabilizers. Please inquire at reception. Offer valid until 31st of August.
This week we had Lauren Boyd and Charles Richardson from Jumeirah College and the English College Dubai respectively, join us for work experience. They are both interested in Chiropractic as a profession and were able to observe how the doctors treat patients and their different symptoms as well as how the overall clinic is run. We wish them all the best and hope one day they do become successful Chiropractors!
Chiropractic Dubai will be at the Westin Hotel Dubai as a sponsor for the Men’s Fitness and Shape Magazine Event on Saturday 25th June. There will be some great competitions and prizes and we shall be performing spinal checks and foot scans at our kiosk!
Chiropractic Dubai was again able to provide spinal checks as part of the Dubai Outlet Mall Health Weekend. We were present for 3 days performing spinal checks and Foot Scans for the shoppers at the Dubai Outlet Mall at a fantastic community Health awareness campaign. Make sure you become a fan of Emirates European Medical Centre on facebook for daily updates on the S.O.S campaign and clinic activities.
A resounding success with our free spinal check ups and foot scans at Mall Of The Emirates!
We screened nearly 2,000 shoppers and employees over 7 days and have had some very positive feedback. Almost all had pain in part of the spine and many had been suffering for over a year! We performed postural checks and examined the spines of the shoppers and some were then required to have a foot scan which gave them an Image on our laptops that the doctor could discuss with the shopper. This is all part of our Save Our Spines initiative that continues successfully to raise spinal health awareness and good posture around Dubai.
On January 26th, 2011, our very own Dr. Gerry Nastasia was invited to present ‘A Overview on the Effectiveness of Manual Therapy’ at ARAB HEALTH 2011, which ran from the 24th-2th of January at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Dr. Gerry’s presentation was as part of 7th Middle East Orthopaedics Conference, a part of ARAB HEALTH, which ran 24 – 26 January 2011
The 7th Middle East Orthopaedics Conference is an annual 3 day event aimed at those in the field of orthopaedics. This conference assembled a faculty of leading internationally, regionally and locally known experts to discuss, debate and demonstrate advanced technologies and techniques for treating the most common conditions across a variety of subspecialties.
Delegates got the chance to hear presentations and participate in panel discussions which featured the very latest advances to help doctors improve patient outcomes.
As part of our S.O.S (save our spines campaign) we at Chiropractic Dubai have been performing spinal health checks around Dubai for schools. We cannot stress enough the importance of a spinal screening at school age to identify a wide variety of potential postural and spinal imbalances.
Our doctors are able to perform simple and effective checks for each student in their p.e. kit that range from hip and neck imbalances to factors affecting stance and gait. All students are sent an individual report of findings and the school is provided with an overall report. Below is an example of a total report that could be sent.
|A- FORWARD HEAD POSTURE||B-ROUNDED SHOULDERS|
|C-HEAD TILTED TO ONE SIDE||D-UNEVEN SHOULDER LEVELS|

Dr. Pamela Leader, Medical Director of Emirates European Medical Centre and Secretary of the Emirates Chiropractic Association, would like to extend chiropractic help to those not in a position to pay privately for such services. As some people cannot afford such treatments, they are forced to suffer in silence while continuing with their work, which in many cases are physically demanding jobs.
We are looking for such people, without insurance coverage, for chiropractic treatment, to enjoy our free treatments for back pain on Thursdays, 3pm-onwards.
Any Chiropractors who would like to help Dr. Pamela are welcome to come and join her endeavour. Our partner, Advanced Radiology, has already offered their support for any analysis that may be required. We are also looking for other sponsors to help as although the doctors shall work for free, some expenses such as appliances, creams, supports etc may need to be covered.
We at Emirates European Medical Centre feel it is very important to give back to the community in Dubai, and we are calling on other chiropractors to join us in treating those who may not normally have access to such care.
All bookings should be Thursdays only, 3pm-onwards.
To book an appointment, please call 04-3481166 and state that you would like to enjoy our free treatment and briefly describe why you would not normally have access to such care. You may also book online at www.chiropracticdubai.com.
