Alan Cavanagh BSc, DC, LCC

Born and raised in Dublin, Alan moved to Edinburgh in 2002 after obtaining his chiropractic qualifications from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan.

Initially, Alan worked for Leah Healthcare Services at their Dundas Street and Comiston Road chiropractic clinics. After 3 years at the latter, he decided to take up the opportunity and challenges of practicing independently. Albion Healthcare was incorporated to takeover that Leah Clinic, and Morningside Chiropractic Clinic was formed as a result.

He has practiced in Morningside ever since and has thoroughly enjoyed becoming part of the neighbourhood; getting to know many of its residents, shopkeepers and characters alike. Alan’s first introduction to chiropractic was when he witnessed the positive effect that it had on his father’s back pain, helping him to avoid a scheduled surgery. He has since continued to see the many benefits that chiropractic can offer, both as patient and practitioner. Alan is the only BUPA registered chiropractor in the clinic and is a member of British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and the Royal College of Chiropractors

He has a keen interest in rugby (especially if Leinster or Ireland are involved), cricket and golf and continues to play hockey in the local leagues.

Vicky Pittman MChiro DC

Vicky is originally from the South of England but is now thoroughly enjoying life living in Edinburgh. She graduated with a Masters of Chiropractic from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan and she previously attained a BSc (Hons) in sports therapy from the University of Hertfordshire in 2004. Since that time she has worked with elite artistic gymnasts providing both prehabilitative and rehabilitative care ensuring that they are functionally fit and able to perform to their best capabilities. This has further served to strengthen her interest and knowledge of the integral workings of the human body.

After graduating Vicky developed a special interest in pre and post partum care and has attended a range of postgraduate pregnancy courses. She has also trained in western acupuncture (dry needling) and developed many taping skills and is a member of Scottish Chiropractic Association

Whilst growing up Vicky was actively involved in many sports at county level, but her main passion laid in artistic gymnastics. She was a member of both regional and national squads and had a successful career spanning a decade winning medals nationally and internationally. She was inspired to join the chiropractic profession after receiving successful chiropractic treatment for a problematic ongoing back injury which nearly ended her career.
