Emily Smyth-Roberts

MChiro DC


I love taking care of and treating a range of patients, I think it is important that everyone gets the highest quality of care, and I enjoy tailoring each treatment for the individual.

My favourite aspect of the profession is interacting with people and making them feel better - what better way to spend the day?!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where did you train and what was the course like?

I trained in Wales at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. During the 5 year course I faced hard challenges (endless revision and exams) but socialising, hockey and countryside walks with my dogs helped me cope with the stress. One of the main highlights of my time at university was working with a company to complete my dissertation looking at military equipment. My time at university came to a perfect end when on the day of graduation I received the award of “best clinical performance”.

Tell us about your career so far?

After a year at the student clinic in South Wales, I moved back to South Gloucestershire. Alongside studying to be a chiropractor, I have qualified as an athletics coach and a fitness instructor to develop my knowledge further. I also worked with multiple sports clubs doing pitch-side first aid whilst at university.

Why did you decide to train as a chiropractor?

I was treated by a chiropractor whilst I was sprint training and was amazed that it could have such a positive effect on an athlete’s body and performance. He gave me the confidence to believe I could become a good chiropractor.

What will we find you doing outside of the clinic?

I am a foodie, so I enjoy visiting new places and also working through recipe books. Alongside my love of food, I make sure I keep fit by doing workouts and walking my two cocker spaniels, Jarvis and Murphy, in the wonderful surrounding countryside.

What are your aims for the future?

I am a huge animal lover and would like to complete the Veterinary Chiropractic Course which will allow me to treat small animals and horses. I am also interested in doing more research with the view to integrate chiropractic into the military.
