Dr Kanika Basra
Kanika graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic with a Master's degree in Chiropractic.
Her desire to become a chiropractor stemmed from the notion of delivering a naturalistic way of healthcare. She feels that people are now far more aware of the benefits that complimentary treatments can offer. Kanika is passionate about helping people that require Chiropractic care, which utilises natural and safe methods without the use of drugs or surgery. Kanika believes that the power of using a simple tool such as one's hands to bring about the necessary functional changes is the very thing that drives her passion for natural medicine.
Kanika uses a variety of chiropractic techniques to restore normal joint function and biomechanical integrity and in so doing can cause a dramatic eduction in pain. These include including Diversified Chiropractic manipulation, activator technique and muscle rehabilitation. She has worked in various clinics in West London and treats both children and adults.
