Dr. Samuel Saukkonen Chiropractor in Dubai – Dr. Samuel Saukkonen was born in 1969, in Belgium of Finnish parents. After completing his formal schooling in Finland he spent his senior year at high school perfecting his English in the United States. He went on to study Chiropractic in Great Britain at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic, which is affiliated with the University of Portsmouth. In 1995 he graduated with a B.Sc. in Chiropractic, equivalent to Doctor of Chiropractic.
After graduating, Dr. Saukkonen and his partner, also a chiropractor, moved to Italy, first to Rome and later in 1997 to Grosseto where they opened their clinic, “The International Chiropractic Clinic”. Dr. Pamela Leader and Dr. Saukkonen soon earned the trust of local medical doctors and specialists making their Italian clinic a point of reference in terms of professional chiropractors of world class.
Dr. Saukkonen says: “My interest for chiropractic started when I found out I was suffering from asthma at the age of 18, and by chance my neighbour in Finland was one of the first chiropractors in the country. He explained to me that chiropractic treatment could help me with my condition by increasing the mobility of the upper chest cage, thereby easing the breathing problems. Indeed, after having a series of treatments I found it easier to manage my condition. As a result I was able to participate in swimming competitively for years thereafter, and have also been heavily involved in sports varying from fitness, cycling, and running.
