Stephen Davison the bestselling crime thriller novelist. But what a funny route Stephen has had to get there. He has been a researcher in the field of Immunology at the University of Cambridge, moved on to qualify as a Doctor of Chiropractic, developed a very successful Chiropractic business with his wife Jo, and now has moved in to the world of writing crime novels! More specifically Kindle Crime mystery novels and he has already enjoyed great success selling over 160,000 copies of his first two novels.
The Varcy and Kendrick Crime Thriller Series
I don’t really see any Chiropractic links to the Varcy and Kendrick Crime Thriller series, although there is a strong medical link to the story lines, especially in Book 1 of the series, Kill and Cure. The two lead characters are London detectives Varcy and Kendrick, and the stories are always fast paced with twisting plots, essential for a gripping crime thriller!
The Hunted Kind – Book 3 of the Crime Thriller Series
Child Abuse? Care home kids? MP’s and other so-called pillars of society involved in all of it?
Not the easiest subject for a crime thriller, but for chiropractor-turned author Stephen Davison the themes were as exciting as they were surprising.
‘I don’t plan anything,’ he says. ‘I write and see where it takes me. Much of the subject matter just appears and so it’s as unexpected to me as anyone reading it.’
The centre of all this attention is his new crime thriller novelTHE HUNTED KIND. The zeitgeist qualities in it are obvious. What with the Savile enquiry, the child abuse allegations up in Rotherham and, in the last few weeks, the fuss around alleged abuse of care home kids by MP’s at Dolphin Square, the theme is very current.
I am so excited! I have already booked my VIP seats, my hotel and cannot wait until February 20-21st in london for The Blue Cow Summit. The Blue Cow Summit is a Business Ideas and Lifestyle event experience for business owners and Entreprenuers of businesses in any niche.
Why is the Blue Cow Summit Special for Business Ideas?
The reason i got so excited about this event is threefold:
The Blue Cow Summit is being run by Dr’s Jo and Steve Davison. Both Doctors of Chiropractic, they developed and ran fantastically successful practices before selling these so that they could develop their other passions. They have developed a fantastic business coaching company, packed with business ideas, called Crack It Training, which initially was for Chiropractic Business Owners to develop their skills, their businesses and provide world class experiences for the patients at these chiropractic centres. Jo and Steve are now transferring their skills and business ideas to a much wider range of business niches.
Third, the atmosphere at this type of event will be extraordinary! When you have a line up of speakers as there will be here, and a room full of proactive business owners the energy will be fantastic, and i hope that during networking i will be introduced to new business ideas that will benefit our clients.
How do you book for the Blue Business Ideas & Lifestyle Summit?
Chiropractic has been shown to be very effective at improving may conditions. Chiropractors regularly relieve mechanical back pain, and back pain is certainly the condition most associated with chiropractic care. But, interestingly, there are many conditions that chiropractic can help as effectively as back pain.

An Introduction to Back Pain
Back pain is extremely common. Most people will suffer at least one episode of back pain during their life. Usually it starts suddenly and gets better quickly, without the need for any treatment. However, back pain can be painful, debilitating and persistent, and some people suffer from it repeatedly and constantly. It can also be associated with other symptoms, such as leg pain or sciatica. It may start following a specific incident, such as bending awkwardly or lifting a heavy weight. Or it can develop gradually, perhaps as a result of poor posture, an uncomfortable work position or repetitive strain.
Seeing a Chiropractor for Back Pain
Chiropractors specialise in assessing, diagnosing and managing conditions of the spine. They are highly trained in finding the cause of pain in the spine. Importantly, chiropractors are regulated by law and must work within strict professional and ethical boundaries.
Before starting treatment, a chiropractor will complete a full New Patient consultation. This will involve taking details about your condition, current health and medical history, and performing a physical examination. Sometimes it may be necessary to refer you for other tests, such as X-rays, MRI scans or blood tests. Your chiropractor will gain as much information about your back pain as possible so that a precise diagnosis can be made.
Your chiropractor will give you their report of findings, what can be done and what you can expect. Andy Green, a Chiropractor in Reading, Berkshire, explains, “After we have performed a thorough assessment and delivered our report of findings we will outline the cause of the back pain and what is our rationale to relieve it. If the root cause of the back pain is something chiropractic cannot help we will immediately refer the patient back to the GP or to an appropriate specialist.”
Back pain comes in many forms, with many different causes. If you suffer any back pain for a period of more than a week, then try consulting a chiropractor! Your back pain, or any of the above named conditions, may soon be a thing of the past. Chiropractors are passionate about helping you relieve your back pain, improve your health and feel great!
