“Simon’s treatment of my shoulder injury was spot on and I saw quick results – he played a pivotal role in enabling me to regain my title- “UK Endurance Lifting Champion 2013”. I didn’t think I’d be able to compete to a high level again, but thankfully Simon proved me wrong. I’m a professional Personal Trainer and I need to be working to 100% fitness as my clients include internationally ranked tennis players. Effective and timely treatments when I need them keep my shoulder on top form, and prevent recurrence of my injury.”

How can Chiropractic help?

So, what can we help with? We don’t just “crack” bones! Our experienced and dedicated Chiropractors are specialists in diagnosing and treating problems to do with your spine, joints, muscles and nerves.  Treatment involves gentle and specific manipulation to free joints that are not moving properly, plus soft tissue therapy, dry needling and lifestyle advice including exercises for the home or gym.

Massage Therapy

You will also find the very best in Massage  Therapy at this clinic, as well as one-to one Pilates sessions and Exercise Rehabilitation programmes. Our sports therapists have experience on a national and international level, including the London 2012 Olympics. They are fully insured and registered with their own professional bodies including the Society of Sports Therapists.

Free Assessments

If you are a bit undecided as to what to do next, feel free to call the clinic and book an informal face to face meeting with one of our practitioners.  These are short and informal sessions, totally without obligation, designed to help you to understand how we could help you.  Please note that in the case of Chiropractic, free assessments are not consultations – you would still be required to book an Initial Consultation, should you wish to proceed with us.

I (Danny) always do my runs on grass. Though is this the best surface for your joints as many tend to think?
A post by our friends in Australia explains more, the answer might not be what you expected...

Health & High Performance
🙋🏼‍♂️𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭'𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐫𝐮𝐧 𝐨𝐧?🏃⁣

🤷‍♂️“Should I run on grass, concrete or a treadmill?” are frequent questions asked by runners, & the answer is surprising to most.⁣

👟An average runner will take 1,000 steps per km, & with 2.5 times bodyweight in force going into the body with each step, minimizing this impact may play a role in injury prevention. ⁣

🤔Runners often think running on a softer surface like grass will “cushion” them & therefore less likely to be injured. However, a new study by Waite et al disputes this train of thought. The authors compared peak vertical tibial acceleration (a proxy for impact forces experienced at the shin) in trained distance runners on 3 surface types (grass, asphalt, and concrete) & 3 grades (incline, decline, & level).⁣

What did they find? ⁣
🔑They observed that running on a softer surface (grass) actually resulted in slightly HIGHER tibial accelerations compared to a harder surface (concrete or asphalt).⁣

Before we discuss these findings further, let’s take a slight detour to discuss what happens inside our body when we run. Our bodies are pretty amazing, and when we run on different surfaces, we subtly adapt or “tune” our muscles & tendons to absorb impacts (our in-built springs). This adaptation occurs pretty much instantaneously when we change surfaces (Ferris 1999, Nigg 2001). So when we ran across a harder surface our springs become less stiff, and the opposite occurs when running on a softer surface, so the net result is impact forces that are pretty similar across surfaces.⁣

🙋What do other studies have to say on this?⁣
🙋🏻‍♀️What should you run on?⁣

  • 5 star review  Fantastic practice, they offer all the services you need to rehabilitate yourself. They are definitely not after your money as my chiropractor Simon really encourages extra stretches to improve your conditions.

  • 5 star review  Professional service, easy to find and has its own parking. I went with neck pain and it was immediately reduced after just one session (thanks Wiebke!). When I stupidly left my car lights on in the car park and went out to a flat battery the boss kindly jump started me. Nice bunch of people and as I say the treatment worked for me and I will continue less frequent visits to keep it from reoccurring. 5***** all round.

  • 5 star review  Thank you Wiebke. You pinpointed exactly what was causing my discomfort and treated me accordingly. I now feel so much better and am looking forward to the next appointment. The useful information of what I can do at home is really helpful too.
