M.Tech. Chiropractic (Doctor of Chiropractic)

Meet {PJ} Chiropractor, Dr. Neil Thompson

My Journey

I will start by telling you that I have always wanted to dedicate my life to helping others find/ discover hope; to promote healthy living and provide a service that was concerned with maintaining well-being. As a boy I suffered from Tension-type headaches, something that was severe enough to affect daily living and enough to make me seek out professional help. At the time I was still unsure of what career I wanted to pursue. A friend at school suggested that I visit a Chiropractor.

At first I was a little unsettled as this was a term and profession that was relatively unknown to me. I decided to give it a try all the same. After receiving a series of treatments my life changed. After seeing a change in myself, not just physically but emotionally, I was assured that chiropractic was a path I was sure to follow. I wanted to help others through chiropractic, the same way I was helped. I had witnessed the power of natural healing and at that moment I realized something that I still hold to this day. It’s something that the founders of chiropractic understood all those years ago when the profession was being developed. I learnt that while other medical professionals are concerned with changing the environment to suit the weakened body, Chiropractic is concerned with strengthening the body to suit the environment. I was reminded of the given ability of our bodies to heal given the opportunity to do so.


Chiropractic Education

I graduated from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC). I received a distinction for my dissertation on Tension-Type Headaches. After university I started my own practice which operated out of Johannesburg for three and a half years.

My Philosophy

As we all know our central nervous system runs through the spine. Any disruption in information running from brain to body may cause a disruption in bodily function. Today I have the distinct privilege of making sure that the nervous system is functioning at the highest level possible. I view myself as the mediator between brain and body.

Life outside of Align 4 Life

I am engaged to my best friend Sanchia Ferreira who just so happens to be the Physiotherapist and Pilates instructor at Align 4 Life. We decided at the end of 2018 that we wanted a fresh start in a new country and decided on the Isle of Man.
