Bristol 10k challenge - accepted!

Afer putting advertisements around the surgery, the Clifton boys were surprised when eight patients were so inspired that they agreed to tackle the Bristol 10k with them.

The Clifton duo hope that by doing the challenge as a group, they will be able to encourage health and activity to all that come to Willow Chiropractic.

Tom said: “The majority of our patients come to us with aches and pains and are those whose health has started to decline. We have around eight patients who we see regularly at the practice that are taking part in the 10k event with us.They are all running for a variety of reasons but the main thing that we found is that a lot of the members used to be fit and active but have fallen off the wagon due to the illness or discomfort that they had.”

Tom and Michael will join their patients, along with over 12,000 others for the Simplyhealth Great Bristol 10k, which is one of the UK’s most scenic 10k courses.

Tom added: “We have both run previously and we aim to get a good time because we are obviously competitive, but now we have a great community element to participating. We often take our health for granted until it is lost - and I think that dealing with patients on a daily basis, we are able to see how upsetting it can be for someone to lose their good health. Through chiropractic treatment they have been able to increase their confidence and fitness and we thought this would be the perfect opportunity for them to put it into practice as a group."
