Chiropractic at Spinavita

We know how miserable it can be if you’re suffering from back, neck or joint pain, or living with migraines. Luckily, help is at hand with our effective chiropractic treatment. It’s 100% natural and carried out by highly trained and regulated practitioners.

Every day life takes its toll on your body – even driving or sitting at a computer can affect your posture and cause problems. Chiropractic works by gentle manipulation of your spine to re-align the vertebrae in your back. This lets nerve messages pass freely to your brain and speeds up the body’s natural healing process.

All treatments start with a comprehensive case history and physical examination to assess your condition. Then we’ll put together a tailored plan to get you mobile and pain free as quickly as possible – then give you advice on how to stay that way.

I have been a patient at Spinavita (formerly Hardwicke & Quedgeley Chiropractic Clinic) since 2004. I have always received the very best treatment from highly qualified, professional and caring staff. I highly recommend Spinavita who provide so much more than relief from chronic pain. Thank you so much for fixing me.”

Andy Potter, Patient

Anna, I visited you for the first time today. You are a miracle worker! I have not felt this good, this free, this free from pain for more years than I can remember. Thank you so much. I am really looking forward to my next appointment. Onwards and upwards.”

Valerie, Chiropractic Patient

This is a wonderful clinic, where from the moment you walk through the door you feel welcomed and in very good hands. Staff are warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Everyone is welcomed like an old friend but each person’s individual needs are looked after to the highest standard. I would be lost without this amazing “sanctuary” of care.”

Amanda Rawlings, Patient

I went to see the team at Spinavita for severe back pain. Between the Chiropractor and Sports Therapist my pain has gone, and with the rehab I have been carrying out I am hopeful it will never return. Thanks guys.”

R Wadner, Patient

Jess has looked after my dodgy back – she is kind, sympathetic and efficient and seems to always know exactly where the pain is! A complete star.”

M Williams, Patient

For over ten years the clinic has given me excellent attention. I have a hip injury. I have been treated with loving care and have benefited enormously and am able to move around with ease. I have always been given first class treatment. In the past I have recommended the clinic to several friends and now to my husband.”

JM Cleever, Patient

At first I was sceptical but thanks to Jess and George I have enjoyed both Chiropractic and Sports Therapy treatments that really worked for me. My aim was to be pain free from an old back injury and play golf more than twice a month and they have helped me achieve much more than that. I now golf every week and have improved drastically. I exercise nearly every day which hasn’t been possible for a few years and I learnt a lot during the 6 week rehab programme which has made me stronger and more confident. I can’t recommend the friendly and professional service enough. Thank you!”


Spinavita was recommended to me by my GP after hurting my back last October, at the time I could hardly move. I started off by seeing Mel who was very thorough and got me moving! I then started seeing Jess as her work hours suited me better and things have gone from strength to strength; no more pain and no more spasms! The staff really know there stuff; anybody who has any pain should put these people at the top of their priorities, a 1st Class service.”

M. Norman, (Chiropractic Patient)

I first went to Spinavita and met Jess about 6 months ago. Everything from the word go put me at ease and gave me confidence that I was in the right place. Everybody without exception has given great customer service and is very friendly. At the initial assessment, Jess identified what my back issue was straight away and we began the first treatment. We then started a course of treatments that have gradually lessened over time as my back problem was put to bed. That has only happened though because of the great advice and treatment received – I’ve followed the advice between treatments and continue to do so – this has ultimately meant I am no longer in pain and can enjoy getting on the golf course again! I would highly recommend Spinavita and Jess to anyone, they’ve been a godsend for me.”

How can Chiropractic help and what can you expect?

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an independent registered primary health care profession which offers highly successful treatment for:

  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • joint pain and discomfort
  • headaches and prevention of migraine

The effectiveness of chiropractic treatments are detailed in the 2009 NHS National Institute and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines and the 2010 Bronfort report.

What to expect?

On your first visit you will receive a comprehensive case history review and physical examination so that the cause and diagnosis of your condition can be obtained. Should further investigations be required to assist this process, (for example x-ray or MRI scan) then this can be arranged by your chiropractor.

Treatment will start with your consent and this could involve a number of different therapies. Chiropractors use specific adjustments /manipulations of the spine or joints of the body which help mobilise joints, increase the efficiency of the nervous system and enhance the body’s natural healing process.

Chiropractors at Spinavita are also trained to use other treatment modalities such as:

  • Dry needle therapy (a form of acupuncture)
  • Rocktape (a type of kinesio tape)
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisations
  • Expert Muscle Testing

Each treatment programme will be tailored to each individual’s condition and need, and a short course of rehabilitation is usually prescribed following the programme of treatment which helps to prevent problems re-occurring.
