What is chiropractic?


Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions that are due to mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. This means that we treat problems involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and nerves. In addition to chiropractic techniques, Stephen uses a variety of treatments including massage, medical acupuncture (dry needling) and rehabilitative exercises, to get patients out of pain and back to normal activities.

Conditions we treat

Low back pain

Around one third of the UK population will have low back pain every year. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines recommend that chiropractic care is used as a first line treatment of chronic low back pain. We are experts in diagnosing and treating the causes of low back pain.

Neck pain

Your head weighs about the same as a bowling ball, so the neck is under a lot of strain trying to support it. It is therefore no surprise that stress on the muscles, joints and nerves can give you pain. We can relieve this using a combination of hands on treatment and postural exercises.

Disc injuries and sciatica

The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging disc. This will generally result in pain, or pins and needles in the buttock and leg. Chiropractic care and postural exercise can help relieve these symptoms.

Shoulder and arm pain

The shoulder is a very mobile area and the muscles, tendons and joints have a heavy workload. As a result, shoulder tension and pain is very common. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve these symptoms.

Arthritis pain

Arthritis, or joint wear and tear, is very common and often results in pain. Whilst we cannot turn back the clock, joint function can be improved and levels of pain can be considerably reduced.

Muscle pain and tendonitis

Tendons connect muscles to bones and are under a lot of tension. Tendonitis occurs when a tendon becomes irritated and inflamed. We can get to the root cause of the problem and aid a swift recovery and help prevent future reoccurrence.

Migraine and headaches

Chiropractic treatment is effective at treating both migraines and headaches which result from tension in the neck, or other root causes.

Sports injuries

We can help with general aches and pain, including joint problems, muscle spasms and cramp; shoulder complaints including rotator cuff injuries, and other soft tissue disorders of the shoulder; ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis; elbow pain and tennis elbow. Stephen is also the official chiropractor to the Swindon Robbins speedway team.

Testimonials

  • I have been visiting Stephen for lower back pain, even simple tasks like standing and chatting, or standing at the cooker to prepare a meal without pain were not possible. Stephen identified the problem, by manipulation and advice and guidance on how I can help myself; I can now walk further and can stand for longer periods, helping me to feel like I am getting my health and life back.

  • I see Stephen regularly for treatment to keep my lower back moving, it makes a real difference to my health. He is always professional but also approachable. I feel able to ask questions about any aspect of my condition and treatment.

  • Stephen has been treating me for the last 12 years. He does a great job in keeping my lower back moving! Stephen is very professional and always friendly with good topics of conversation. I would gladly recommend Stephen to anyone.

  • Steve is very professional and knows his job brilliantly. He is friendly and polite and has given me the knowledge of why I get the pain I do. I see Steve regularly to keep my back in shape and to live a pain free life still being able to do the job I love. Highly recommended.

  • Stephen has helped with my problems for over 2 years now. Due to an accident in the past, I need regular "maintenance" of my spine. His professional help lets me carry on with my physical work as normal. It is easy to contact Stephen and there is always room to book an emergency appointment if needed. He maintains strict anti-covid procedures which are very important due to close contact with patients. Stephen has got a very friendly approach and answers all questions. I highly recommend his services.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough the services that Stephen provides. Whilst struggling to walk and not knowing what to expect, Stephen took the time to understand the best approach and treatment to get me back on my feet. His caring approach and clear explanation of the treatment has enabled us to work on a recovery plan to restore my full mobility.

  • Stephen has been treating my back for about 15 years now. I have worked in a manual job since leaving school and my back and posture really do suffer. If ever I have hurt myself, he has always managed to fit me in somewhere soon if not on the same day to help me out. He's very friendly and down to earth and always makes you feel welcome. I don't think after all this time I would ever fully trust anyone else.
