After graduation, he moved back to Sweden to complete his final year in clinic, finally obtaining a full license and authorisation by law, as a Chiropractic Physician, in 1992.
He then returned to the United Kingdom, and worked at the Blackberry Orthopaedic Clinic in Milton Keynes for 13 years as a full-time clinician in a multidisciplinary team, and was in his last few years there a senior clinician involved with supervision of new graduates.
