Happy New Year!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us this past year. What a year we have had! We were lucky enough to win 3 awards this year as well as getting over 100 5 star reviews on Google.

Our first award in 2019 was in January when we were awards the Patient Partnership Quality Mark by the Royal College of Chiropractors for the second time.

The next award was from the Zenith Global Health Awards which was a very prestigious event in London where I won the Allied Professionals Award.

Finally I won the Best Business Woman in Health and Wellness at another event in London. I had entered this award for the past 3 years and had been a finalist twice before so it was extra special to finally win this award.

I hope you all have a wonderful new year. If you have any aches and pains and want to start the new year the right way? Why not book a free chat with one of our practitioners and see how we can help you.

Top tips to avoid back pain this Christmas

As we approach the Christmas season, you’d be surprised how many people hurt their back over the festive period!


Did you know… There is an increase in patients coming into the clinic with backaches and pains that have appeared during the Christmas period.

In fact… There are many ways you could hurt your back at Christmas. Bending and lifting heavy items like Christmas trees, furniture or even the turkey can easily strain your back or exacerbate existing aches and pains.  Also we do tend to sit a lot more at Christmas, catching up with family, watching films on those dark nights.  It’s so important to keep active.

If you do hurt your back or neck during the holidays, your first thought might be to put your feet up on the sofa and watch some festive films and wait till the pain disappears.

But remember… Although this may seem like the obvious option, it is much more beneficial for your back to keep your muscles moving.

Here are our top tips to avoid back pain at Christmas:

  • If you’re lifting heavy or awkward objects like the Christmas tree or furniture, always ask for help.
  • When you’re putting up decorations, use a step or a ladder to avoid over stretching or straining your back or neck.
  • Make sure you go for regular walks over the holidays.  Keeping active is a great way to keep your spine healthy.
  • Try and wrap presents up over a few days rather than all at once.  If you spend too much time in one position that’s when you could get pain.
  • Make sure you make time for yourself to relax.  Christmas can be a very stressful time, and this can also lead to a lot of muscle tension so finding some time to relax and listen to a meditation can be just what you need.
  • Why not book in a relaxing massage over the Christmas period to stop any muscle tightness building up?

The Results are in…

Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to complete our latest survey. Sixty patients completed the survey. We are extremely grateful as we can make sure we are providing the best service possible.

Overall everyone is extremely happy with the treatment provided. We did have one miscommunication with a patient regarding the free 15 minute chat. We are however trying to make sure this would never happen again by introducing a form that patients fill out before a free chat detailing exactly what is involved and what it is for.

Other than that we are so pleased with the feedback and peoples responses. We try so hard in what we do. It means so much to read everyone’s feedback and responses so thank you so much.

The full results will be available to look over at the clinic but I thought I’d post some of the comments here for you to read.

We would love your feedback

I have a questionnaire about how we are doing and would love it if you could fill this out for me.  Once you have filled it out just let the receptionist know at your next appointment and they will give you a £5 discount as a thank you.

The questionnaire asks a lot of questions related to chiropractic but please answer the questionnaire no matter what practitioner you see it has just been written for us by the Royal College of Chiropractors and they analyse the results for us.

Please find the link to the survey below.

We are always striving to improve our services and by filling in the questionnaire you can help us make the clinic as good as we can.

Thank you for your continued support.

Meet our Chiropractors…

We have 3 chiropractors at attend2health Rhiannon Hughes, Louise Hampton and Adrian Collingwood.  All chiropractors are registered with the General Chiropractic Council and are available on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  Chiropractors and osteopaths are very similar.  They both treat a number of conditions affecting the muscles and joints in the body namely things like back pain, neck pain, sciatica, minor sports injuries and shoulder complaints.  Chiropractors may use manipulation, mobilisation, massage and give exercises to help.  We don’t have to ‘crack’ your joints we have a lot of treatment options available.

Taking a case history

Louise is the owner of attend2health as well as being a chiropractor.  She qualified from the University of South Wales in 2004 and is a Fellow of the British Chiropractic Association.  Last year Louise wrote a book on low back pain which can be bought from the clinic or on Amazon.  www.low-back-pain.co.uk.

Book on low back pain – www.low-back-pain.co.uk

Adrian qualified from the University of Surrey in 2003 and has a Masters in Chiropractic.  Adrian has a special interest in how chiropractic can help headaches.  He always considers a health problem or symptom within the context of a patients whole lifestyle.  Symptoms don’t just happen on their own – they are a warning that something is not right – and as chiropractors we know the importance of maintaining body and lifestyle balance.

Rhiannon qualified from the University of South Wales in 2013 with a Masters degree in Chiropractic.  She has a special interest in pregnancy and after receiving chiropractic herself when she was a child she knew she wanted to help deliver the same high standard and quality of care to others.
