Anna Franklin

After working as an associate in various different chiropractic clinics, Anna established the Godalming Chiropractic Clinic, where she worked for 15 years. However, she lives locally and since the birth of her 2 children, she prefers to work within her own community from the Twin Oaks Medical Centre. She finished a post-graduate Clinical Masters Degree in 1999, alongside full-time clinical practice, and was made a Fellow of the College Of Chiropractors (which hopes to achieve Royal Assent in the future) and a Fellow of the Faculty of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation.


Special Interests

For her Master’s Degree, Anna wrote a dissertation on exercise compliance with different types of exercises prescribed for chronic low back pain sufferers. This research was based on an extensive trial involving her own patients, and led to her special interest in the rehabilitation of chronic low back and neck pain. During this time, she also published a paper in the European Journal of Chiropractic concerning a case study of osteomyelitis in the cervical spine (infection of the vertebrae of the neck)

Anna teaches rehabilitative exercise with a view to improving the chronic pain patient’s quality of life and enabling them to return to leisure activities and work. After individual assessment and diagnosis, a decision will be made with the patient such that a suitable and practicable plan of management may be prescribed. She is experienced in prescribing exercise, from athletes to post-surgical patients, so your programme will suit you, your condition and your goals.

Academic Involvements

Anna was an External Examiner for the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic for 5 years, and has therefore been involved with maintaining the high standards of clinical excellence expected in this country.

Anna also worked part-time as a Senior Clinical Tutor at the AECC supervising the final year students in their last year of study in the student teaching clinic.

Wendy Streeton

Wendy’s career in healthcare began in the ambulance service where she was a paramedic for over 10 years. A shoulder injury led her to seek the help of a chiropractor. This led to a change in career direction and after five years training at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) she graduated with a Masters in Chiropractic.

At the AECC, Wendy became particularly interested in how chiropractic care could help babies. During her internship she coordinated a multidisciplinary clinic where mothers and babies having difficulties breastfeeding newborns could see a midwife and a chiropractor together.

Wendy’s Masters dissertation was in Pregnancy Related Lower Back pain and she always feels privileged to treat pregnant mums-to-be before, during and after pregnancy with problems such as low back pain, pelvic pain, neck pain, leg and foot pain .....

She continues to enjoy treating newborns and older babies and children as well as adults of all ages.

Wendy is also a qualified hypnotherapist and uses hypnotherapy to help people with many issues particularly those relating to stress, anxiety and chronic pain.

“Finding chiropractic has been blessing for me and I am delighted to have found such a rewarding career where I can help such a wide variety of people”

In 2009 Wendy took a sabbatical to volunteer as an expedition medic in Borneo with Raleigh International, “One of the most interesting times of my life, trekking in the rain jungle, scuba diving and dealing with all manner of illness and injury”

Nowadays, when she’s not working Wendy can be found cycling, looking after her cats and hens or out walking her dog in the New Forest.
