Increases/decreases muscle tone & muscle length, improving muscle imbalances
Helps improve posture and postural issues

Deep Tissue and Rehabilitative Massage
This kind of massage is not just beneficial for sportsmen or women. However, if you need more of a rehabilitative approach to your treatment then our therapist will be able to deliver this.
Chiropractic and Massage
A combination of chiropractic care and massage can be extremely powerful. However, the massage service is not only for chiropractic patients and you can book in for a massage without having seen a chiropractor.
The clinic has access to a local walk-in x-ray facility with modern digital equipment. Films are produced in minutes and can be viewed immediately, so avoiding any unnecessary delays in the onset of treatment. All the chiropractors are qualified to read and report x-ray films.
MRI & Musculoskelatel Ultrasound
The chiropractic staff have full referral access to MRI and ultrasound scanning services which can be arranged quickly and at some of the lowest costs in the country. The nearest facilty is located 10 min away on the Jubilee line and at a cost of £240 per region for MRI and £100 per region for an ultrasound.
Many foot, knee and low back complaints arise as a result of the arches of the feet collapsing. The use of foot orthotics can greatly assist the management of these conditions. Our chiropractic staff are trained to recognise when these may be necessary and our clinic is a supplier of Superfeet orthotics.
A number of other products are available to patients to assist the treatment of a range of different conditions. These include, orthopaedic pillows, exercise balls, cold packs, fisocreme (Arnica), seat wedges, wobble cushions, foam rollers, lumbar belts and heel lifts. Our clinic is also able to source a wide range of other supportive products.
With the aim of providing the optimal conditions for treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, the clinic supplies a small range of nutritional supplements.
