Low Force Chiropractic
Helping the spine to be free and helping joints to be strong has enormous implications for our health. Walking around with overly tight muscles and restricted joints is like a donkey walking with a huge load on its back. It can still function, but it takes more energy than it should and wears things out too quickly. Chiropractic is a quick efficient way to take the load off your back.
Chiropractic is regulated by statute in the UK and although chiropractors provide their services largely within the private sector, NHS funding for chiropractic treatment is now emerging region by region under the Department of Health’s new commissioning arrangements. Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of problems affecting the joints, muscles and nerves and are probably best known for treating low back pain, a condition which costs the equivalent of between 1% and 2% of the UK GDP and has a significant impact on people’s lives.
I am a registered chiropractor in the UK with the General Chiropractic Council. I trained at McTimoney College of Chiropractic, graduating over 10 years ago. McTimoney is renowned for its light quick style of adjusting. No loud clicks, or attempts to force the body, just gentle, easy manipulations to help you work better.

My style of diagnosis has been strongly influenced by understanding how the nervous system controls the body. I trained in proprioceptive medicine with Dr Simon King, click here for more information.
