My Clinic Assistant Experience
Hi I’m Judy, eighteen months ago I was looking for a job after working in the same place for 13 years, I had no idea what I might be qualified for as my husband had been my boss for the last 20 years and he didn’t really ask for a CV!!! (he would have said what’s a cv!)
I saw a job advertised for a clinic assistant at Lushington Chiropractic, could this be the job for me, could I do it?!! I knew by the job description that it was more than a straight forward receptionist job but I had no idea exactly what I would be letting myself in for!!
It was definitely the right decision to apply as now I am part of a wonderful team of people doing a job that I really enjoy where no 2 days are ever the same!! I sometimes feel like I am running around like a headless chicken but I always feel satisfied at the end of the day that I have had a good day.
The Chiropractors are really dedicated to helping people be the best they can be with regards to their health.
I was surprised how much was involved with chiropractic treatment. They help people when they are in a lot of pain but it doesn’t stop there they also advise on exercise, posture, good diet and nutrition to help maintain their recovery.
The massage therapists are excellent at providing sports massages that compliment the work done by the Chiropractors or just a lovely firm massage to get rid of the stresses of the week!
My fellow clinic assistants couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful and I learnt so much about how to deal with people in a caring, friendly and professional way by just watching them at work. They definitely can be compared to the graceful swan or duck swimming on the lake looking so serene and behind the scenes trying to juggle 6 jobs at a time whilst taking a phone call, sorting the washing and making a cup of coffee!
I have learnt a lot about what Chiropractic actually is and have watched the chiropractors adjusting their guests which has been really interesting as prior to joining the clinic I had no idea what an adjustment actually was. I am continually learning new things about chiropractic
The guests were all lovely, when they realised I was new they were very kind and understanding as I found my way around the appointment booking system!
Lushington Chiropractic continues to be a growing practice and I hope to grow with it for many years to come
