HELPING YOU FEEL GREAT AGAIN
“At first, they'll ask you why you're doing it. Later, they'll ask how you did it"
A health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.
The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC 2001) and the World Health Organisation (WHO 2005)
In other words, we are a profession who use multiple hands on techniques to treat joint, muscular and nerve disorders, helping you feel great again!
For me, the core of chiropractic is the adjustment.
The Adjustment is a hands on technique, with the specific aim of delivering an impulse to a desired joint.
It’s the adjustment that causes the wide range of benefits to occur, such as decreased pain and increased movement, that most people attribute to Chiropractic care.
In other words, the adjustment is like a body hack. It tells the body where to focus, heal and delivers a wide range of benefits to the area.
Not by any means!
As a Neuromusculoskeletal (Nerve/Muscle/Joint) specialist, we treat a vast range of issues relating to all joints, muscles and nerves and many more as listed below.
We also like to get hands-on and we do a lot of soft tissue work, mobility work and even give homework to keep you getting better while you’re at home.
We also look at what you would benefit from within our 3 tier approach. Could a compressive back support help? Could the “Core 4” supplements help with your inflammation in your knee?

THREE STEP PROCESS
PAIN - FUNCTION - CAPACITY
An accurate diagnosis is key to finding the ROOT CAUSE of the issue. That’s because pain doesn’t necessarily arise from the painful area, which can sometimes make it difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s going on. Also, if it’s been there for a long time, other muscles and joints can become aggravated and start causing additional symptoms.
Find the ROOT CAUSE not just the pain
- Reduce the pain frequency
- Reduce pain intensity
- Increase free range of motion
Function starts to deal with those niggles we found during our examination review . We’ve been able to calm things down nicely and are now focusing on the finer details. We want to start restoring the range of motion to joints, muscles and tissue, start getting the body back to working seamlessly together. This stage becomes more intense due to the increase in homework.
You have 167 hours in a week to help yourself and actively get better, and less than 1 hour during a session.
Deal with the FACILITATORS
- Reduce stiffness
- Increase flexibility
- Increase functionality
This is where we want to build you back up and stop it coming back. We use our 3 step rehab protocol to do this. We apply a set of base principles to tailor a rehab programme to your specific condition.
Slowly but surely we work through each of the 3 steps to put you back in control. This is the final lesson and this tool will allow you to keep yourself stronger for longer.
STOP It From Ever Coming Back
- Increase Strength / Power / Endurance
- Increase Movement Quality / Quantity / Loading
- Increase Self Management
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT AFTER FIRST VISIT
“Saw Tom for the first time last year when my back had gone and could hardly walk. What can I say? Massive improvement after first visit, and as good as new after a couple more. Not been back for over a year but pulled back this week at work, so had to return. Came away today feeling almost good as new. Apart from the actual work tomorrow carried out on you, he is extremely professional and very well informed on what he’s doing. Can’t rate highly enough. Superb.”
ACTUALLY WANTS TO HELP PEOPLE
“What can I say about Tom, other than top bloke and brilliant chiropractor. Very knowledgable and actually wants to help people and not just make a quick buck like some places. Goes from head to toe and doesn’t just treat but gives advice and exercise to maintain the work he’s done. Very much recommend Tom. “
WENT IN LIKE A BROKEN MAN
