Dr. Christian H. E. Farthing is not a medical doctor in the UK. He is a Doctor of Chiropractic in Australia and now practices as a Spinal Health Specialist and Osteomyologist in Canterbury, Kent, UK.

In fact, Dr. Farthing had a choice to go to medical school or chiropractic college. He chose Chiropractic and this will tell you why you might want to, too!

Dr, Christian was born & raised in Tumut, New South Wales, Australia. After graduating from Canberra Grammar High School, he attended the University at the Royal Melbourne Institute of (RMIT) Technology in Melbourne, Victoria. In 1997 he gained a double degree in Bachelor of Applied Science (Clinical Science) and Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and swore an oath to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Farthing has received graduate awards for leadership, academic and clinical excellence in his area of expertise. Upon graduation he received numerous awards for his Academic and Clinical Excellence, including the prestigious Graduate of the Year Award.

Having studied as a chiropractor, he has a special insight into the health fields and wanted to progress forward to look at correcting the cause of peoples' health concerns and so, completed post graduate studies in spinal correction. Dr. Farthing is not a Chiropractor, Osteopath or Medical Doctor. He specialises in spinal correction and now practices in Canterbury as a Wellness Doctor and Spinal Specialist in the United Kingdom.

Dr. Christian H. E. Farthing graduated with a double degree to become a chiropractor. Dr. Farthing has spent the last 10 years studying the principles of high performance health and healing. From 1996 to 2000, Dr. Farthing completed post-graduate work in spinal correction, whilst working as a professional locum in practices throughout Australia.

Dr. Farthing is committed in providing the community with the most up-to-date modern chiropractic procedures to restore patient's spinal alignment, and in turn, optimise their health and well-being. He is a well-known subluxation specialist in Australia and the UK and has helped literally thousands of people obtain their health goals.

Dr. Farthing regularly lectures at professional seminars across the United Kingdom, Europe, United States, and Australia to other health professionals and their staff with an emphasis on wellness orientated health care. His purpose is to educate and adjust as many families as possible toward optimal health through modern natural spinal care.

Dr. Farthing was contracted to practice as a Chiropractor in the UK from 2000-2001. He then had a dispute with the new regulatory body, was suspended from calling himself a chiropractor, yet due to the growing concern for the community's health, he decided to build the Ideal Spine Centre and become the spear-head for the wellness movement in the UK. During his initial suspension, and because he chose to continue to help people, he was suspended for further a three years. Having always dreamed about becoming a chiropractor, he could not understand why chiropractic should be any different than the rest of the world. He asked, "Why should the rest of the world benefit from spinal correction and wellness care, but not the UK? Why should the UK miss out? Put simply, this is what they want to occur in Britain.

This was when Dr. Farthing knew something had to be done to protect the principles of chiropractic that have served literally millions of families around the world since 1895. Also, Dr. Farthing wanted to make sure our future generations could receive the same level and standard of care that is received in other countries around the world.

In 2003, the Ideal Spine Centre opened its doors. During this time, The Ideal Spine Centre has been recognised by Platinum System Organisation for providing the highest standard of patient care through the use of modern technology. Dr. Farthing has also been recognised internationally further as a Distinguished Fellow of CBP for Clinical and Spinal Biomechanics. He is the founder of The Wellness Practice in the UK and is one of the leading author of the bestseller "The World's Best Kept Health Secret Revealed" (2nd Ed).

Dr. Farthing's corrective and wellness oriented focus is dedicated to paediatric development and adult health care. He is a member of the International Chiropractic Association, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and the World Chiropractic Alliance - the three largest chiropractic organisations in the world. Dr. Farthing is a registered Chiropractor in Australia and is also a Platinum member for the Waiting List Practice, the most successful chiropractic training organisation in the world today.

Dr. Farthing travels over 20,000 miles each year to post-graduate seminars, where he learns from and also teaches other doctors. He has also done presentations to local businesses, schools, retirement living communities, sporting organisations, churches and Christian Schools. Having lectured and presented many health workshops to health professionals, specialists, right down to school children, Dr. Farthing has a wonderful ability to convey the importance of posture in relation to one's health.
