Our Chiropractor Mark is passionate about decreasing the burden musculoskeletal problems are having on our society, with a special interest and expertise in the field of back pain management and spinal pain.
“Pain can have a huge effect on peoples quality of life, empowering people to lead more fulfilling lives without pain holding them back is something that is very important to me.”
Mark has always had a keen interest in science, the human body and sport which led him to peruse a degree in Chemistry and Sports Science that he completed at the World renowned Loughborough University, which is regarded as one of the best in the World for Sport Science.
“This gave me a great understanding of human physiology, it is where I first began to learn the importance of exercise and diet and its relationship to health, it’s what ignited my passion in this area”
Mark was a keen athlete competing at a high level in athletics, winning numerous county championships for both sprint hurdles and 400m hurdles breaking the county championship record at the time. It was actually an injury sustained whilst training that led Mark to seek out the services of a Chiropractor
“I was really impressed by the knowledge of the Chiropractor and how quickly he got me out of pain and back training again, I was fascinated by the techniques used and as I began to learn a little more about Chiropractic I started to consider it as a career choice. I knew then that is what I was going to do and haven’t looked back since “
After completing his first degree he went on to do a 4 year Masters Degree to become a Chiropractor. In his first year of practice he completed a Post graduate Training Scheme with the College of Chiropractors which led to the recognition of the title Doctor of Chiropractic.
Mark has attended many post graduate conferences and seminars to enhance his clinic skills and tools he has available to help patients.

As well and attending these post graduate seminars and conferences he has completed further University based post graduate qualifications, gaining a distinction for a post graduate certificate in clinical development.

Muscular tension and aches and pains can accumulate due to everyday demands from busy liefsyles, not just sport.
“I like to work closely with each client to ensure that they get the most out of their treatment and tailor the massage depending on an individual needs and preferences. Massage can be a great complement to Chiropractic treatment or delivered on its own”
