Peter Oxenvad – Chiropractor
Danish born chiropractor, Dr Peter Oxenvad, graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, Bournemouth, in 1996 and received his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) in 2001. Peter is a full member of the British Chiropractic Association, and holds full registration with the General Chiropractic Council (00751).
During his career Peter has developed a particular interest in the area of spinal trauma and whiplash associated injuries, and in 2003 Peter was invited to advance his training further under the renowned and leading whiplash expert Dr Arthur Croft, founder and director of Spine Research Institute of San Diego, US.
In 2004 Peter became the first, and currently the only chiropractor, to have gained UK recognition by Cardiff Law School, Cardiff University, as a certified expert witness in Spinal and Skeletal Trauma.
In daily practice Peter remains passionate about the health benefits chiropractic can offer. He has carried out 1000’s of examinations and successfully treated a wealth of acute and chronic conditions in his patients. His motto “Just because a condition is chronic doesn’t mean to say you have to live with it” remains central to his approach to patient care.
Peter strongly believes that chiropractic offers a unique way of helping patients who suffers with chronic or acute neuro-muscular-skeletal conditions, and the many satisfied patients treated by chiropractors throughout the UK and beyond every day bear evidence that chiropractic healthcare is an attractive and cost-effective solution from which people can enjoy better general health.
Peter also recognises the benefits in a multidisciplinary treatment approach and has established good working relationships and dialogue with local Hospitals/GP’s, spinal surgeons and healthcare professionals alike.
Peter is currently completing a Masters in Healthcare Coaching at Derby University. He enjoys endurance sports and the odd game of tennis. Peter has four children.

Mary Harrington – Receptionist
Before joining Thorne Road Chiropractic Clinic in November 2010 Mary had been a Medical Receptionist at a very busy Medical Practice in Doncaster Town Centre. Prior to that she had been employed for many years by Doncaster Council and took (very) early retirement from her role as Library Manager, Accesssibility in 2008. Mary then enjoyed two years of relaxation and catching up with friends before looking for employment in July 2010 – considering herself too young to be retired!
Her interests are listening to music, especially live music; sport, but only as a spectator; and reading – she and her husband are members of a Local Readers’ Group.
Mary likes meeting people from all walks of life and enjoys being part of the team at Thorne Road Chiropractic Clinic. The team of receptionists support the Chiropractors, and other practitioners based at the Clinic, who deliver their services in a very professional manner.
