How Chiropractic works & What we do


Every single cell, tissue, organ and muscle in your body receives either a direct nerve supply or is under the control of the central nervous system


Chemical messengers produced by glands and other cells transmit messages from your brain along your neural pathways to every part of you body and back again


This message relay system is always informing your internal doctor what needs healing, repairing or deleting and telling your organs and cells what to switch on or off and how to function optimally


When there is disruption to the flow of these messages such as irritation, inflammation or interference, your body cannot function as well as it should.


One of the first symptoms that the messages are getting scrambled or stuck is PAIN and discomfort.  Your body is crying for help!


Detecting the exact location along the spine where your nervous system is failing is WHAT WE DO – and our knowledge on how chiropractic works gives us the edge in helping you get out of PAIN fast with long lasting results.

What We Do

Chiropractic is a safe, natural and holistic practice regulated by the General Chiropractic Council and the European Council on Chiropractic Education (ECCE) internationally.

It’s a non-invasive hands-on approach to healing that involves specific spinal and joint adjustments to improve spinal alignment and neurological function and it’s this combination of techniques that improves mobility, flexibility and alignment, reducing pain and improving overall body function.

Chiropractors are experts in diagnosing and resolving neuro-musculoskeletal functional disorders of the spine, making chiropractic ideal for problems such as back, neck and knee pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica relief and many more symptoms besides!.

Chiropractors are trained to understand the human body in health and disease.  They specialise in the neuromotor function of the spine and nervous system, identifying abnormalities of the human structure and function.  We believe this is why we have been able to help kickstart the healing journey for thousands of clients over the years we’ve been in practice.  People like you and me, who have sought out a different approach to healing that starts from within, naturally is how chiropractic works

“Nearly a Decade”

I’ve been visiting Walker Spinal Health Centre for nearly a decade and over the years I’ve come to appreciate the holistic benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments. As a health professional myself, I’m a bit fussy about who I entrust my health to and expect high standards. This is exactly what you will get from Martyn and Sarah. Their warm, friendly and professional attitude has ensured my spinal health, with a few adjustments along the way remains discomfort and pain free.

“Free of Discomfort and Pain”

I have had a bad arm for 18 months, having consulted a Doctor, attended Physiotherapy department at the local hospital and finally found Martyn, a chiropractor who within 2 visits has sorted my ‘so called’ tennis elbow.  I never thought it was tennis elbow and Martyn’s expertise has given me an arm free of discomfort and pain and has allowed me to carry out my work of woodcarving without having to wear wrist braces etc.
