We investigate the root causes of Pain / Aches / Strain
Our chiropractors are multidisciplinary specialists utilising a diverse range of techniques and therapies to provide you with the best care possible.
Our approach is to find the root cause of your ailment before treating you and then work with you to find a solution that best suits your lifestyle and personal goals. Integrating different therapies together allows us to personalize and individualise care to you.
Our chiropractors are trained in biomechanics, manipulation, mobilisation, acupuncture, active release, functional range release & conditioning, tool assisted soft tissue release, dynamic neuromuscular stabilisation, taping, exercise prescription, rehab and much more.
Using these methods, we work with you to form a plan of care that suits your individual needs.
Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body’s natural healing ability.
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. A chiropractor is trained to diagnose your problem and will refer you to another health-care practitioner if necessary. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery. The effectiveness of chiropractic treatment is supported by research as well as by various UK government and medical organisations.
In common with medical practitioners and dentists, all chiropractors are registered by law under the Chiropractors Act 1994 and the title ‘Chiropractor’ is protected under this legislation. The profession is statutorily regulated through the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practise as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.
We are all registered with the General Chiropractic Council and members or fellows of the Royal College of Chiropractors and the British Chiropractic Association (BCA).

What are the differences between a chiropractor, an osteopath and a physio?
There were a lot of similarities between ostoepaths and chiropractors. Both are regulated by an Act of parliament like doctors and dentists; both study for 4 or 5 years for a BSc or MSc degree; both have been going for over 100 years; both use manipulation to treat muscle and joint problems; both have a special interest in treating spinal problems like back pain and neck pain; both advise exercises and lifestyle changes and both are mostly not available on the NHS – yet.
The main things are some subtle differences in the spinal techniques used and probably most important of all – chiropractors will recommend preventative check-ups more often. There are a couple of other differences between chiropractors, osteopaths and physios.
An important one is that chiropractors are qualified to take and read x-rays.
There are about 2500 chiropractors in the UK. Osteopaths number about 4000. In the rest of the world the situation is reversed with about 60,000 chiropractors and about 10,000 osteopaths. The difference in the UK is probably because there has been an osteopathic college here since the 1920′s but a chiropractic college only since 1965.
