Any injury, whether from an accident or wrong posture, can lead to discomfort and aches. When not treated on time, these can escalate and require surgical interventions. If you have injured yourself in the gym or playing a match, or you are experiencing the onset of aches for reasons that are yet to be determined, I can help alleviate these.

I use a unique fusion of therapeutic techniques rigorously designed to eliminate or diminish pain and restore mobility without recourse to drugs or surgery. I take pride in having helped several clients to experience relief and emerge free from pain after a few sessions. I have even helped identify critical symptoms that have enabled other health care professionals to obtain the necessary diagnosis from life-threatening conditions.

When being treated you can rest assured that I will always work in your best interests and towards a positive outcome. I aim to improve your quality of life and to restore your body’s ability to what it was. The end goal is to improve your mobility, release tension, and minimise pain, as much as possible.

Karen S – Chiropractic Assistant

Although I am relatively new to working within chiropractic care, I know how beneficial it is for people’s health and well-being. Having suffered for years with migraines, back and neck pain, within a few months of having treatment, my pain and migraines have virtually disappeared and now I just have regular maintenance adjustments with Dr James who keeps the migraines at bay.

The clinic is such a friendly and welcoming place to work, it’s a constant hub of activity and it’s great meeting both old and new patients and seeing their progression.

Please note that I had left the clinic briefly for personal reasons and pleased now to be back.
