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. Hayden Lancaster, D.C.
Hayden is a graduate of the McTimoney College of Chiropractic. Chiropractic first found Hayden when he was 13 years old and started suffering severe cramps and weakness in his right leg which was stopping him from sleeping and participating in sport.
Several months of doctors’ appointments and various scans revealed an upper motor neurone lesion obstructing communication from his brain to his body. Through chiropractic Hayden became able to sleep and participate in sport without hindrance from pain. This naturally inspired an interest in health and in particular the spine. It soon became apparent how crucial maintaining spinal health is to living a healthy living lifestyle.
Seeing the benefits he and his family got from chiropractic made his choice of career easy and he remains passionate about educating as many people as possible about chiropractic and the spine.
Haydens personal interests include surfing, crossfit and coffee.
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.
