Robert La Touche BA (Mod) MSc DC MMCA MCC

spineRobert La Touche graduated with an honours degree in Natural Sciences in 1972 and went on to study for and receive an MSc in Marine Zoology. He then worked as a marine biologist for University College Galway for 14 years.

During this time his interest in complimentary medicine grew until in 1994 he enrolled in the McTimoney Chiropractic College, graduating with a Diploma in Chiropractic in 1997.

Since then he has devoted considerable efforts to improve his chiropractic techniques through continuous professional development courses. His chiropractic treatment now consists of mainly Sacro-Occipital Technique “(SOT) a highly diagnostic, effective and gentle therapy. Patients being treated with SOT are re-diagnosed using extremely sensitive SOT techniques at each visit and their progress is monitored”.

Most treatments involve gently mobilising the spine with Power Assisted Micro-manipulation “(PAM)”, one of the more significant contributions to spinal care since chiropractic has been practised.
