Meet the Team
Dr. Ryan Copleston, D.C.
When he’s not in the Clinic adjusting patients you’ll find him running up and down the mountains of Scotland. He moved to Wishaw in September 2017 after completing his studies at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, which is also the place he calls his hometown. Growing up the son of a rugby coach, he quickly got involved in the game at a young age and played competitively up until he moved to Scotland. years which include; being a competitive Power-Lifter and gaining GBR records, coaching Crossfit and being a personal trainer.
His interest in human health and performance started off for his own personal gain, but after seeing some of his closest friends and family suffer from various physical ailments his focus turned to helping others with the knowledge he gained.
He chose a career in Chiropractic as a means of improving and maintaining the health of not only himself, but those who chose to incorporate chiropractic care into their lives.
“If only more people understood the adaptability and resilience of the human body, they’d be empowered to make the changes to improve their health and well-being”.
As well as being a chiropractor, he also operates wellness programs online and within the office. His most notable experiences since becoming a chiropractor include; volunteering in India, and adjusting the homeless on Christmas Day.
Dr. Oliver Samson, D.C.
Ollie has always had a passion for fitness, health and wellness. He played rugby throughout his time at school and university. And it was through a number of contact sport related injuries, he first experienced the benefits of chiropractic care. He is adamant that it was treatment he received which enabled him to return to the pitch so quickly and keep him playing at his best.
During his time at university down in Bournemouth Ollie developed a passion for the rehabilitation side of chiropractic. However this was more of out of necessity after rupturing a number of ligaments in his knee during a game. He was given two choices, sit out the rest of the season and focus on intense rehab or surgery. Striving to avoid surgery and after seeking advice from a few of the tutors at college, he was committed to getting back to match fitness as soon as possible. Whilst recovering, it gave him a chance to enhance his knowledge of functional fitness and biomechanic performance, all the while, frequently getting adjusted to ensure maximum recovery. He also had a chance to explore other interests such as hiking and running which he continues to enjoy up in Scotland.
Ollie is passionate about chiropractic and that care has the potential to improve the quality of life of people of all ages, situation and circumstance. Through treating the person and not only the diagnosis, he believes everyone has the ability to heal and achieve their individual goals, no matter how small or great.
Ollie graduated from AECC (Anglo-European College of Chiropractic) in Bournemouth with a masters in Chiropractic. He is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and the Scottish Chiropractic Association.
Dr. Max Nolan, D.C.
Another member of the team who has made the move up north is Max. Born and raised in Oxford, Max has always enjoyed an active lifestyle, sparking his interest in human health and wellbeing.
Max was first exposed to the world of chiropractic after seeing the results it had for his parent’s health. This led to Max incorporating chiropractic into his own life, aiding in his rehabilitation and recovery from various sporting injuries.
“The human body is an incredible self-regulator & self-healer. Chiropractic is about assisting the body in this process and maintaining these positive changes made to your health and well-being, optimising what your body can achieve.”
Graduating from AECC with a Master’s in Chiropractic, Max is registered with the Scottish Chiropractic Association and the General Chiropractic Council.
Rebecca was able to see first hand the results chiropractic care can have when she attended the clinic following back problems whilst studying dance full time. Despite doctors advising that she wouldn’t be able to complete her course, regular adjustments allowed her to complete her HND. Seeing how sports therapy and chiropractic care can go hand in hand Rebecca developed a keen interest for injury rehabilitation which is what led her to then go on and study an HND in Sports Therapy which she qualified in, in June 2021.
Out with the clinic Rebecca is an assistant dance teacher at a local dance school and still dances in the senior class. As well as dancing in her spare time she also regularly attends the gym focusing mainly on resistance training.
