All four of our Chiropractors are graduates from the world-renowned AECC University College in Bournemouth (https://www.aecc.ac.uk/ ).

Chiropractors must also demonstrate fitness to practise and continue their post-graduate education to qualify for annual re-registration with their governing body, the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) of the UK.

It is illegal to practise as a Chiropractor without being registered with the GCC in the UK (https://www.gcc-uk.org/).

Our Doctors of Chiropractic take a holistic approach to health and wellbeing:

  • Taking a full Medical History
  • Conducting a thorough Physical Examination
  • Taking X-Rays if indicated
  • Presenting a Report of Findings and answering your questions
  • Setting out a course of Chiropractic Care tailored to you with the goal of addressing the cause of the problem and maximising your health
  • Assessing, Adjusting, Advising – providing evidence-based care
  • Managing / Co-managing Holistically
  • Retesting, Reassessing and Referring if required

Doctors of Chiropractic are specifically trained to take and read spinal radiographs.
X-rays enable us to diagnose osteoporosis (bone thinning), infections and inflammatory arthropathies (arthritis).

They also enable us to assess the condition of joints, bones, and postural distortions which gives important information relating to the biomechanical stresses involved.

When an x-ray is indicated, your Chiropractor will discuss the risks and benefits with you.

Chiropractic Adjustments are precise, small, rapid movements of specific joints.

Adjustments are rarely painful. Joints are often inflamed, and therefore tender to touch. If the nerves are severely irritated the likelihood for soreness increases. Chiropractors are extensively trained to perform adjustments gently and safely, tailoring treatment to suit individual people and their condition at the time.

New patients are occasionally nervous receiving their first chiropractic adjustment. This frequently is about a ‘clicking’ or ‘popping’ sound that usually occurs with adjustments.

Adjusting joints is a practised skill and our Doctors of Chiropractic have 60 years combined experience.

Our Chiropractors adjust each other and our staff regularly to maintain our health and well-being.
Adjustments aim to restore optimal joint movement, removing interference to nerve function and alleviating irritation. Chiropractic care not only aims to relieve symptoms but to restore and maintain optimal health and wellbeing.

The popping noise is simply the sound generated from the gapping of restricted joints and the release of gasses from the synovial fluid.

It is a natural response to the movement generated by the adjustment and represents no risk to the function of the joint. It is an indication that the joint has moved through its full range of motion. The restoration of motion to restricted joints is a major aim of the chiropractic adjustment.

Still don’t like the sound of that?
New Milton Chiropractic is the place for you!

That is because Our Doctors of Chiropractic have techniques that can adjust your spine and other joints without the association of the popping noise.

Our Clinic has specific expertise with Paediatric touch and hold techniques, NeuroImpulse Protocols (NIP) and Activator Methods (www.activator.com). These include systematic approaches to effective whole body adjusting, which are gentle enough for use in all age-groups: another reason why we are known for whole body health and whole family care.

First Consultation and Report of Findings £47 (Total)

Good health does not cost – it pays. Your Health is your greatest Wealth.

Most health insurers cover chiropractic care. You do not need to have a doctor’s referral in most cases.

The cover depends on the type of policy you have, and the amount covered varies. Our clinic will not directly bill insurance providers. We provide receipts so you can make a claim from your insurer.

Check with your health fund for all their terms and conditions.

“I came to see Damien because of pelvic misalignment, a stiff neck with severe headaches and a hand injury from a car accident. I turned to chiropractic after my GP incorrectly diagnosed me and sent me away with a ‘diet sheet’!!! Chiropractic gave me back my life. It has improved my performance stamina and finally I became pain free. Damien is always very understanding and hugely knowledgeable. I always understand what is happening and how it can help me.”

“I consulted Dr Lawyer for help with multiple problems. I had a dislocated coccyx, knee and neck problems (after car crashes) and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). The results have been amazing! My coccyx was great after three sessions. I stopped getting daily headaches, whole body pain was significantly reduced and I feel like I’ve got a new body. I can exercise again now and rest without pain too. It has changed my life in every way possible. Kermin taught me stretches and exercises that have helped my ME symptoms significantly reduce. I hardly take painkillers and I took them daily before.”

“Damien is a talented chiropractor, always prepared to think outside the box to find a solution to people’s pain and problems. He practises like no other chiropractor I have ever visited with an amazing variety of techniques and in-depth knowledge. He has earned the right to call his practice ‘top to toe chiro’. I have referred a number of my patients to Damien and, like myself, they have been very impressed with his treatment.”

"I was a total sceptic about benefits of chiropractors and thought they were just for bad backs .... (I was having issues with my ankle and thumb joints) but Damien worked magic and after less than six weeks I was back to walking 20 miles again without any issues. He is so knowledgeable and knows exactly what’s hurting and why, I always feel better and more mobile after treatment and suffer if I don’t keep my regular appointments. I would highly recommend him - the clinic is managed by a great team of very friendly staff."

"I believe in preventative care and find that regular visits to Jon are keeping me flexible and healthy. Although treatment can be noisy it is not painful. Thank you, Jon, for your care."
