Our Story

Spinal Care Clinic’s story begins in a teenager’s mind almost 40 years ago…

Hello, I’m Ronen and I’m a doctor of Chiropractic and clinic director at Spinal Care Clinics, Brentwood.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been drawn to healing and caring for others, it’s in my nature.

It’s not until an American Chiropractor, Dr. Daniel Serota, moved next door to me that I discovered Chiropractic. And WOW what a discovery!

In his clinic I witnessed miracles happening right in front of my eyes on a daily basis. I didn’t believe healing was possible without the use of medicine or surgery.  But Dr. Daniel proved me wrong.

Since then, my purpose in life was clear to me.

I had a clear vision of creating a wellness clinic where specialised therapists would gather to provide natural and holistic therapies, transforming people’s lives and bringing hope to their hearts and smiles to their faces.

In the years that passed, I was able to fulfil my dream and I’m filled with gratitude every time I arrive for work at the clinic and greet my amazing team.  My team are dedicated, caring individuals who share my vision and work hard together to achieve the best results for our clients.

After two years of Pre-Med studies in Queens college New York, I moved to the UK to pursue my dream of becoming a chiropractor.  In 2001, I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth.

I became a co-owner of 3 successful Chiropractic clinics in Essex but I soon realised two very important things; I had become a manager, not a practitioner and the clinics I worked with weren’t aligned to my vision.  I needed a change and I needed to re-capture that authentic vision I had dreamt so much about in previous years.

I knew I needed to go back to the core of healing.  I needed to follow my heart by focusing on one clinic, one team and provide the best care possible to help heal my community.

"When I’m asked what my greatest accomplishments are, I immediately say “ the three women in my life”. My lovely wife, Lill, who has always supported me throughout my career and still runs the clinic back office very efficiently, and my two teenage daughters who I hope will one day become Chiropractors too.

My other passion is yoga, both the philosophy and the practice. As a yoga teacher, I bring my knowledge and expertise to the care of my clients and witness the transformational change to optimal health and wellness."
