We are delighted that Enrico Bernardi is the latest addition to our team. Enrico found chiropractic through his strong desire to help others and he decided to observe a chiropractor before applying to university. What he saw left him with a lasting impression when he witnessed the patient’s hopeful eyes looking at the chiropractor who had finally eased their pain and improved their quality of life. This showed Enrico that chiropractic care can be impactful and change the lives of many people who have been led to believe there is ‘nothing that can be done at your age’.
He is a Graduate of the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of South Wales. He has a keen interest in keeping up-to-date with the best available evidence, our combined clinical experience of more than 40 years of chiropractic practice here at Clifton Chiropractic Clinic and the expectations of the patient to deliver world class chiropractic care.
Enrico is a friendly, warm and welcoming Doctor of Chiropractic who will make you feel at ease. He is a good listener who will listen to your story without interrupting you to gain a thorough history of your problem before performing the most thorough examination you are likely to experience in Bristol. Enrico will assess your posture using the latest digital technology, examine all your joints and muscles as well as doing a thorough assessment of any effects this could be having on your nervous system. He will take x-rays of the affected area if necessary, digitally assess your foot posture to see if the way you stand is affecting your posture and do an Insight Scan to check how your body is adapting to the stresses of life. This will allow Enrico to deliver a tailored and specific treatment plan for you.
After completing your assessment, Enrico will prepare a thorough report for you which he will deliver both verbally and in writing on your second visit. He usually has so much information to give you that patients find it helpful to bring a friend or partner with them to absorb the information. He will tell you what is wrong with you, whether or not chiropractic is the best treatment for you and if not, he will refer you to the best qualified professional to manage your care. If you are a chiropractic patient Enrico will tell you how long the treatment is likely to take and what it is likely to cost. He will also tell you what you need to do to stop the problem coming back. Apart from chiropractic adjusting techniques, Enrico is also trained to deliver shockwave therapy, dry needing (acupuncture-type of care) and kinesiology taping which enables him to manage all kinds of conditions including sports injuries for which one might not usually consult a chiropractor.
