Originally from Holland, it was through a hockey injury that Jasper first came in contact with the local Chiropractor and became fascinated by chiropractic. After finishing a 4 year degree in physiotherapy in Holland, he moved to England and successfully completed the 5 year Chiropractic Master of Science degree.
Prior to running Milton Chiropractic Clinic in Cambridge, Jasper moved back to Holland to work in a chiropractic practice, which he took over two years later. During four successful years of management, the clinic grew to three full-time chiropractors and one physiotherapist.
Jasper’s professional interests include many aspects of health, and chiropractic proves to be an excellent profession for sharing this passion with his patients. Additionally, he has a keen interest in sports injuries and has treated numerous sports players with physio including; professional football players, professional cyclists as well as members of the local rugby, football and hockey teams
Becky was brought up in Thetford, Norfolk. After injuring her neck and shoulder in a fall from a horse, she experienced frequent episodes of pain and stiffness for months after the accident.
Fortunately for Becky, her family were familiar with the benefits of Chiropractic treatment and together with regular, specialist Chiropractic care and strengthening exercises at home, she recovered from her injuries and the pain disappeared.
This experience and her passion for working with people motivated Becky to pursue a career in Chiropractic care. Becky qualified with a Masters Degree in Chiropractic and moved to Holland with Jasper to work for two practices, before returning to Cambridge to run Milton Chiropractic Clinic.
Marcin was born in Poland and lived there until the age of 7 when he moved to Canada with his family. He has dual nationality, which comes handy when travelling to and exploring different countries. Marcin first became interested in Chiropractic at the age of 16 after suffering a back injury during a football match, and was in a lot of pain for three months as general practitioners, consultants and physiotherapists tried to solve his back problem. He was eventually referred to a chiropractor for treatment and after two weeks his back was as good as new. His personal experience of back pain and the chiropractic care he received inspired his decision to study for 8 years at University for a degree in Science and Chiropractic. Alongside studying for his degree, Marcin worked in real estate and taught English to Taiwanese students. Marcin joined Milton Chiropractic Clinic in Cambridge in March 2015. ’The most rewarding part of my job is the appreciation that people have when they have been looked after well’, explains Marcin. Marcin speaks both English and Polish fluently and has recently learnt to speak Mandarin. In his spare time he enjoys travelling, surfing, and catching up with close friends and family over good food – another one of his passions.
Rebecca grew up in Vancouver, Canada and was lucky enough to enjoy the great outdoors from a very young age. Her parents had her on skis at two years old! She also has a lot of experience canoeing, kayaking, climbing and hiking.
She originally graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in Geography and English literature before taking some time to travel and work abroad. One of her most memorable experiences was buying a wooden canoe from local fishermen in Laos and paddling down a tributary of the Mekong for a few days with some fellow travellers. It is with this freedom of spirit that Rebecca engages with people and puts patients at ease throughout their care.
As a Chiropractor she is dedicated to working with patients to deliver personal, attentive and effective healthcare- all the way out of pain and into wellness. She treats with a very individual emphasis, taking into consideration each person’s needs and goals, and her patients appreciate her gentle but firm treatment approach. Rebecca particularly enjoys antenatal care and believes good posture and spinal health is invaluable for children to learn.
Lena will be joining Milton Chiropractic Clinic as a Chiropractor from 1st August. Lena is originally from Harstad in Norway, and her career background is slightly unusual. Lena spent eight years in the Norwegian Army, where she progressed to the rank of Lieutenant. After leaving the Army she changed her career for one that focused on helping people recover from pain and injuries and improving their health and well-being. A self-confessed people person, Lena craved a career that was both interesting and socially rewarding and one where she could combine the physical aspects of her military training with her desire to improve the quality of life for others. Lena studied Chiropractic at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, which is one of the largest training and teaching facilities in Europe. ‘Much of working in complementary medicine is about supporting the patients’ needs and helping them to reach their goals’ Lena explains. In addition to her passion for Chiropractic, Lean is also interested in healthy cooking and bodyweight training. She enjoys being active outdoors, but most of all enjoys nature and camping. As with most Norwegians, Lena was pretty much born with cross country skies on her legs. But after 5 years in England she thinks it’s a bit optimistic to hope for that much snow in Cambridge
Kathryn worked in the south of England before she decided to move Cambridge.
From a young age, Kathryn knew she wanted to work closely with people in a healthcare setting, and found a love for Chiropractic after her Dad received a successful course of treatment for a sporting injury. She has a patient goal centred approach, and is passionate about working with patients to get what they want out of treatment. She aims to provide individualised, quality care, using a wide range of evidence-based techniques.
Kathryn has a strong background in rehabilitation and sport, with experience treating Rugby teams. She strongly believes in promoting patient involvement through individual exercise programmes, to not only treat but also prevent injury.
“The best thing about chiropractic is working towards and achieving the goals of your patients, and getting them to a stage of strength and fitness they may have never thought possible!”
Her special interest lies working with pregnant mothers and babies, having worked closely with midwives to improve breast feeding.
When not working, Kathryn loves getting outdoors to walk her dogs, going to the gym and travelling all over to meet friends from her studies.
Alex joined the team in 2017 moving from his home city of Bristol. He has always been a keen rugby player and, as rugby players do, picked up a few injuries along the way. A local chiropractor managed to sort Alex out and he became fascinated by the holistic view of chiropractic. Not only did Alex respond very well to the chiropractic treatment, he was also intrigued by the nutritional advice he was given, the exercises he had to do as well as the postural advice.
Alex knew from that moment on he wanted to become a chiropractor.
Alex is a goal orientated person, who sets goals for himself as well as for his patients. “Nothing pleases me more than reaching and surpassing the goals the patient and I set out at the initial stages of the treatment plan. All goals are personal and I get as much pleasure from helping someone to walk 5 km pain free, as from helping a triathlete prepare for an ironman”.
Alex has gained a lot of experience over the years. He has worked with many different athletes ranging from golf, rugby and football players, to iron man events.
In his private time Alex enjoys the outdoors. Hiking, surfing and rock climbing are amongst his favourite pastimes, although he probably will not do a lot of rock climbing in Cambridge!
Sarah was born in the UK but has spent much of her life living in Africa – both in Mozambique and South Africa. Sarah has enjoyed a varied career, working in everything from floristry to estate agency, finance to teaching, running a restaurant to working for a gold mining company.
Sarah’s skills as a people person means that she can easily turn her hand to many roles, bringing the same enthusiasm and energy to her work. Sarah left Cape Town in 2012 to move back to the UK with her two teenage daughters.
She began working at Milton Chiropractic Clinic in 2013 – a decision she largely puts down to the fact that Jasper Hulscher is the only person she had met in the UK able to pronounce her name correctly! Sarah also enjoys working as practice manager at Milton Chiropractic because she has first-hand experience of the effectiveness of chiropractic.
She says, “In South Africa, chiropractic is very popular and is often the first port of call for anybody suffering from musculoskeletal problems.”
Sarah also loves the variety that comes with working at Milton. She says, “Every day is different and I get to meet patients from different age groups and backgrounds. The clinic is such a happy place to work – always filled with laughter. And perhaps most importantly of all, the team are so very supportive of one another.”
Interesting fact about Sarah: she has never learned to ride a bike.
