All our practitioners have completed training in dry needling and often use a combination of dry needling/acupuncture and Chiropractic/Osteopathy to treat a number of musculoskeletal conditions.
Chris and Pamella have attended the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) foundation course as well as several additional acupuncture courses through BMAS. This further training encompassed not only the use of acupuncture for musculoskeletal conditions but also the wider use of acupuncture for a variety of other conditions and general wellbeing. Pamella also completed an MSc in Western Acupuncture through the University of Hertfordshire and is an accredited BMAS member.

MLS Laser therapy
Laser therapy is available with all 3 of our chiropractors and can be offered as a stand alone treatment or in combination with chiropractic/acupuncture.
How does it work?
Laser therapy involves directing laser light energy into inflamed or damaged tissues to accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
The laser is placed in direct contact with the skin which enables light photons to penetrate the tissue and interact with molecules within the cells to cause several biochemical effects.
What to expect:
After a full clinical assessment of your condition, we will tailor make a treatment protocol just for you.
The number of sessions you will require will depend on your condition – this will be discussed in your initial appointment.
Treatments are quick and painless and often you will feel the results during the first treatment. For chronic conditions it may take a few sessions for you to feel the effects, but the cellular benefits will be immediate!
- Laser has the following effects:
- Inhibits the sensory nerve impulses associated with pain
- Decreases inflammatory cells
- Relaxes muscle spasm immediately
- Increases vascular supply and restores normal blood flow
- Provides energy for the cells within the tissue allowing them to repair
Useful for the following conditions:
- Muscle spasm and pain
- Sprains & strains
- Back pain
- Hip pain
- Knee pain
