DR TASH ADAMS

From a young age I have always had an interest in natural health care and the human body. When I was 15, I was fortunate to complete work experience in an Integrated Clinic and was lucky enough to spend some time with an inspirational Chiropractor.
Having completed my Masters degree in Chiropractic at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic, UK, I began work in a multidisciplinary clinic in the South of England which confirmed to me the benefits of an Integrated approach.
In early 2014, I indulged my passion for culture and food by traveling throughout India, China and South-East Asia ending in Perth. Within a few months I was completely sold on the Australian lifestyle and have been working and enjoying the sunshine and outdoor lifestyle that the West coast has to offer ever since.
I find it extremely rewarding being in a position to help people achieve their health goals through chiropractic care. I have a particular interest in Women’s Health and Paediatrics and continue to pursue further professional development within these fields.

I am currently treating from both Carine and Claremont whilst covering Dr Tash Adams in Carine during her maternity leave.

I have been receiving regular chiropractic care since the age of 12 years old following a sporting injury and certainly understand first hand the benefits it offers, both as a response to injury/ dysfunction/ pain or as ongoing support to prevent reoccurrence of previous issues and to allow the body to function at it’s optimum level.

This prompted a career change from Head of Service of a multinational financial services corporation to pursue a career as a Doctor of Chiropractic, allowing me to provide the same benefits I experience from chiropractic care to my patients.

Outside of chiropractic, I enjoy spending time with my young family outdoors, playing squash, the occasional session at the gym and I have recently set myself the goal of learning to kitesurf.

I look forward to welcoming you to Bare Motion.

Megan consults 2 days a week at Bare Motion in Carine. Combining her deep understanding of the mechanisms underlying pain with evidence-based practice she strives to empower her patients and promote self-sufficiency, within a positive and active environment. Megan uses biomechanical digital video analysis to help identify underlying contributing factors such as faulty movement patterns, which enables accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Megan has been lecturing and teaching at the University of Notre Dame for the past 8 years. She has taught the Soft Tissue Injury Management, Upper Limb, Lower Limb and Lumbar Spine courses and she co-ordinated the Orthopaedics Course within the School of Physiotherapy for several years. Currently she is teaching the Cervical Spine course. Megan has also recently completed a Master of Philosophy degree through the University of Notre Dame. Her research explored particular mechanisms underlying pain. Her article entitled “Visually-induced analgesia in a deep tissue experimental pain model: a randomised cross-over experiment” was published in the European Journal of Pain.

Prior to this, Megan gained clinical experience in both hospital and private practice musculoskeletal settings in South Africa, England and in Perth. This culminated in her establishing and directing her private practice in the northern suburbs, until she commenced teaching at the University of Notre Dame in 2012, on a permanent basis. Megan places great emphasis on education with a view to assisting patients to manage and prevent their conditions as independently as possible.
