Mr Robert Spratley
Robert trained in chiropractic at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Oxfordshire.
Robert's interest in chiropractic stemmed from a lower back injury sustained in his late 20s.
After a year of putting up with a dull ache, he decided to confront the problem and find a
good chiropractor. He commenced treatment, and within 3 months, the problem was
resolved. This process stirred an interest in the mechanics of the human body, that ultimately
led to him studying to become a chiropractor.
His initial aims as a chiropractor are two-fold: to reduce levels of pain and to improve mobility. These are usually the core problems that patients complain of, so it seems reasonable that this be the focus of attention. The aim after this is to manage problems long term in partnership with the patient so as to minimise the likelihood of problems recurring, and to encourage patients to remain in optimum health.
As well as using McTimoney technique, Robert also uses diversified chiropractic and Active Release Technique (ART) for soft tissue problems.
Robert is a keen skier and runner and is interested in treating sports injuries such as shoulder and knee pain. He is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), the McTimoney Chiropractic Association (MCA) and the United Chiropractic Association (UCA).
