Dr. Anita Gleeson BSc, MSc, DC

Principal Chiropractor

Qualifications
I am a former graduate of the reputable Glamorgan University in Wales. After five years of intensive studying I returned to Ireland in 2009 to begin work in busy clinics in the midlands and Tipperary for three years before setting up DUNGARVAN CHIROPRACTIC CLINIC in 2012. I am a fully insured Chiropractor, a member of the CAI (Chiropractic Association of Ireland) and the European Chiropractic Council.

Why Chiropractic?
I always wanted to work in a health care profession but my first experience with a Chiropractor was when I was 13years of age. I suffered with chronic headaches. After exhausting all the usual medical routes (CAT scans/eye and ear investigation/dentistry checks) I was brought to a Chiropractor. I was diagnosed with cervicogenic headaches (headaches caused by nerve irritation as a result of a spinal subluxation).After a course of adjustments my headaches vanished! I was fascinated by the mechanics and scientific evidence behind Chiropractic. When it came to work experience in transition year in school I went to shadow a number of Chiropractors around Ireland. Straight away I realised this was the career path for me!

Interests
I have a special interest in treating elite athletes and sport related injuries. Outside of work I enjoy horse riding, skiing and running and I am involved in the local West Waterford running club. I am committed to promoting optimal health and well being in Dungarvan and the surrounding county of Waterford.
