“Best thing I have ever done for my body!”

My headaches have stopped, my shoulders and knee don’t hurt anymore and my posture is a lot better. Peter helped me change my diet to improve health and I learned how to use my body better. I feel better in myself.

“Now I don’t need painkillers”

At times the pain in my hip was almost unbearable, I took regular painkillers as I have to be on my feet all day at work. Now I don’t need painkillers and I can sit without pain going from my hip to knee. If you don’t try, you’ll never know if it will help.

"I can enjoy my active lifestyle again”

For over 10 years my life had been controlled by pain and became very restrictive. I now feel fresh, mobile and a lot more confident. With no pain and a lot more flexibility in movement I can do more and enjoy my active lifestyle again.

Max Hadipour

“I feel great!”

For 3-4 years I had a lot of pain and impaired movement to my right ankle caused through an accident. Now the movement in my ankle is so much better, I am now at the gym + starting to run gently on a treadmill without pain and my whole posture is improving through exercises given to me. I am so glad I did it.

Elizabeth Broomfield

“I feel lighter and younger!”

Peter has helped with several issues that have ‘come and gone’ over the years and they have now completely disappeared. I am confident of the treatment I am receiving. In my case it has always needed an accumulative series of adjustments over weeks for a lasting improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions


How does Chiropractic work?

Chiropractors examine your spine and other joints for quality, quantity and control of movement. If a joint is particularly restricted, they will use a range of hands-on techniques to make small adjustments to improve function, increase mobility and reduce pain in the affected area. This can help to improve, manage and prevent some disorders of your neuromusculoskeletal system (your bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves). They will look to understand the reason why the symptoms have presented in the first place and look to correct the underlying cause. This may entail a specific rehab plan to strengthen weak areas and improve flexibility, working on your strength and conditioning, your diet and more.

Will it hurt?

The adjustments themselves don’t hurt. Sometimes if a joint is particularly stiff it can be a little uncomfortable to get it moving at first. Muscles can become very sensitive and it can be difficult for us to work on you if they are already tender without applying some pressure. Occasionally there may be some soreness for a day or so after being worked on, like if you’ve exercised for the first time in a while; but we always aim to make your experience as comfortable and effective as possible.

Who can see a Chiropractor?

Everyone. The youngest patient we’ve seen so far was 6 days old and the eldest was 96. We always tailor your care to suit your age, needs and lifestyle, to ensure that our care is as safe, effective and comfortable as possible.

What if Chiropractic’s not for me?

If we feel that you wouldn’t benefit from seeing a Chiropractor and that a different treatment or practitioner would better suit you, we will make sure that you are referred to the appropriate person. We do our utmost to refer you to and provide you with excellent local X-ray, MRI and Ultrasound facilities if necessary. If your GP would be better suited to help with further investigations, we can help to keep them up to date with your requirements too.

What will happen during my first appointment?

During your initial consultation we will sit down together and have a chat. We like to understand what’s been going on and how it’s affecting you. This helps us to understand what’s important to you and what you want to get out of your care with us, whether it’s to get back to work, to start exercising again without pain, to run a marathon or to get to Everest Base Camp. This will include any history of medications, surgeries, sports injuries or accidents to give us a better overall picture of your health. Next will be a physical exam, this will entail checking how well your joints move and function, we will also carry out neurological and orthopaedic tests, muscle strength and endurance tests and more, in order to establish what’s going on.
