I’ve been attending North Down Chiropractic clinic for a while now and would recommend it wholeheartedly. It’s about your whole wellbeing and of course any niggly areas that need sorted. Most of my family now attend as well.

First class chiropractic treatment.

I had been struggling for close to a year with shoulder, neck and back issues and tried everything from private physio to being referred by GP for help through NHS. All helped only for a very brief period, but probably because all believed the issues to be muscle related problems.

After my initial assessment with Luke he quickly identified that it was in fact a nerve issue and the extremely tight muscles were a result of this. I’ve now been treated extensively to promote smoother and unimpeded ulnar nerve movement and as a result I am seeing very positive results. I am also being shown and taught how to self manage these problems so I will keep getting better, and hopefully in time the issues will be eradicated. I still have a few sessions to go but I am now back to playing golf and playing quite well.

Nearly a year on from first noticing symptoms I now see light at the end of the tunnel, all from a handful of sessions since the end of February at North Down Chiropractic Clinic.

My only regret is I didn’t get this treatment done sooner which would’ve meant a shorter recovery period.

Many thanks to Luke and the staff at North Down Chiropractic Clinic.

I was a fairly competitive powerlifter who had been struggling to mend, what I thought was either my glute or my hamstring for 14 months prior to consulting Luke.

I had tried everthing I could think of and everything suggested to me by the internet or my doctor. The injury was so specific to the movements I’d perform in powerlifting that I’d given some serious consideration to quitting the sport all together which left me feeling quite bitter because I still felt that I had much more to achieve.

As a last ditch effort I booked into see Luke to see if he could help (I was very sceptical)
He ran through a thorough assessment with me and explained what he believed the problem to be. He was honest about the prognosis in the assessment and explained the next steps he would recommend.

I was interested in his course of treatment as when speaking he showed an in depth knowledge of the field whilst considering the possibility that he could be wrong and if that was the case he would refer me to get a scan to get a better idea of what was going on (This was a great show of understanding and character as there is seldom a quick fix for problems in the body and diagnoses are always best guess scenarios despite what the industry would have us believe).

However what encouraged me the most to go with Luke for treatment was his vision on a total body correction process where he would endeavour to treat the root cause of the problem as well as the problem itself.

I began some weekly treatments with Luke and would leave each session with homework to do throughout the week to help the process.

To cut a long story short I’ve been pain free for 6 months now and my strength is almost back to where it was 2 years ago. I’m enjoying training again and looking forwards to competing again in September. This would not have been possible without Luke. So I guess what I’m trying to say is thank you.

I started seeing Luke in February due to persistent problems with my hip. I have since found out my issue through MRI scans and appointments with doctors (which frankly have been a waste of time). I have made major progress from daily pain being at around 7 or 8/10 to 2 or 3/10 simply due to exercises he has provided me with along with training in the gym and being told what to do to strengthen my hip. I still continue to go every 1 to 2 months as I do understand the problem is not fixed however I now know how to manage this problem and wouldn’t have been able to do so without this treatment.

I could not recommend Luke or the rest of the lovely, polite and friendly team at North Down Chiropractic Clinic enough to anyone considering going to a chiropractor.
