Doctor of Chiropractic Louise Hampton  – My Story

From a young age I knew I wanted to help people.  When I was 15 I went to observe a Chiropractor and was very impressed by the results she was getting.  People were very happy with the treatment and I thought I want to do this.

 

It takes 4 years to train as a Chiropractor plus you then must do a post graduate diploma to then call yourself a Doctor of Chiropractic.  It was a tough course but very enjoyable as you knew everything you were learning you needed to know.

 

After I qualified I first set up a clinic with a friend in Birmingham.  We rented two rooms in a health clinic and did really well.

 

 

I then decided I would really like to relocate back to Hertfordshire where I grew up so I sold my share of the clinic and started the clinic in Buntingford Herts.

 

It was daunting setting up a clinic on my own.  I was 26, had just got married and was now trying to relocate our house and businesses.  I found a shop for rent in Buntingford and it was perfect.  We could fit 3 treatment rooms into the building so there was room to grow.

 

To start with times were hard especially as I had my first child in 2009 just over a year since I had started the clinic so it was not the best time to have to take on an associate.  For the next couple of years we made a loss and I remember thinking how long can I go on like this.  I knew it had the potential to be successful but trying to juggle children as well was very hard.  I am so glad that I stuck at it and over time the clinic started to grow.  In 2010 I was awarded a Fellow by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) for the work I had done on the BCA Council.

 

I was very keen that the clinic had to give patients the best possible experience.  I wanted to make sure patients were given a lot of time to discuss their problems and that we could give treatment and exercises without feeling rushed.  Patient satisfaction is so important to me.

 

Now I have a wonderful team of practitioners and receptionists providing the best experience possible for our patients.  Everyone is passionate about helping people and we all work so well together.  I am so proud of my clinic.
