How registered chiropractors work & 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 are produced by glands and other cells. They transmit messages from your brain along your neural pathways. These chemical messengers go to every part of your body and back again.


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


When this flow gets disrupted your body cannot function normally. Disruptions include irritation, inflammation, interference, and more.


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.  Our knowledge of how chiropractic works give us the edge in helping you get out of PAIN fast, by offering natural chronic pain relief, with long-lasting results.

What We Do

Registered Chiropractors are safe, natural and holistic practitioners, offering drug free pain relief, regulated by the General Chiropractic Council, as well as the European Council on Chiropractic Education (ECCE) internationally.

The beauty of chiropractic is that it’s a non-invasive hands-on approach to healing, it involves specific spinal and joint adjustments to improve spinal alignment and neurological function. This combination of techniques help to improve mobility, flexibility, and overall spinal alignment which in turn helps to reduce pain and improves overall body function. We cannot guarantee immediate relief for sciatica pain and other issues you may have, but we can say with confidence that a change in lifestyle along with regular chiropractic adjustments from us will improve most conditions over time. From headache treatments to chiropractic back pain treatments and much more, we have plenty of experience treating issues of all kinds.

Did you know that Registered Chiropractors are experts in diagnosing and resolving neuro-musculoskeletal functional disorders of the spine. Chiropractic is ideal for problems such as back and neck pain and even knee pain. On top of that chiropractic is beneficial for headache and migraine relief, sciatica pain relief, and many more symptoms besides, such as treatment for adults with scoliosis.

All registered chiropractors receive extensive training whilst undertaking their degree studies so that they can relate to and 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 with drug-free pain relief for thousands of clients over the years. People like you and me, who have sought out a drug-free pain management 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.
