What Is Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractors are regulated healthcare professionals who have the skills and knowledge to assess, diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions. These conditions typically include back and neck pain as well as other minor sports injuries. Chiropractic treatment can help alleviate the symptoms of pain and discomfort as well as improving mobility and disability associated with these conditions.

Chiropractors use a wide range of techniques which include spinal manipulation, extremity joint manipulation, soft tissue treatments, mobilisation as well as providing advice and guidance around exercise prescription and lifestyle factors.

This may also include advice around diet, nutrition as well as techniques to manage stress.

More recently he has been involved in supporting the next generation of chiropractors, working part-time as a Lecturer of Chiropractic at London South Bank University, having previously undertaken a role as a clinic supervisor at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (WIOC).  He has worked as an associate chiropractor since graduating, working in clinics in both Derby and Northampton and decided in 2023 that the time was right to begin running his own clinic so he set up Chiropractic Healthcare Derby to fulfil that ambition. 

Aside from chiropractic, James is a football referee – you may see him running around a football pitch. By combining football and his degree, James is also currently involved in teaching Emergency Medical First Aid in Football to grassroots and professional coaches for the Football Association. 

James unwinds from work by spending time walking his bulldog Reginald. He also has a private pilot’s license. 

James is registered with the General Chiropractic Council, a member of the British Chiropractic Association and a Licentiate member of the Royal College of Chiropractors. James has recently trained as trainer for the Royal College of Chiropractors Post-Registration (PRT) programme, with the aim of supporting new chiropractic graduates into the profession.
