“one of the things that keeps me on the mats is the ‘Active Health Management’ treatment at Wilkinson Chiropractic”
– Fred Greenall 2015 European Champion Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Many patients are seen no more than three or four times a year depending on their individual case. As most modern lifestyle encourages joints to tighten and muscles to stiffen, a regular but infrequent treatment makes sense. It allows for the maintenance of motion and mobility in joints and the soft tissue. The patient will again be advised and often exercises are altered to account for responses made by the body.
Fred Greenall is the 2015 European Champion in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial art that focuses on leverage and joint locks to restrain and submit opponents. He runs a martial arts academy at Heavy Metal Gym in Ilkley. He teaches young people and adults to defend themselves against bigger and stronger assailants. For more information please follow his link to Positive Options.
Before becoming a martial arts champion Fred was a competitive power lifter, placing third at the World Power Lifting Championships in 2007. After winning a score of regional, national and European titles, Fred has set his sights on the World Championships. Needless to say, after over ten years of high-level competition, he benefits greatly from his chiropractic care.
We’ve got your back Fred!
