Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation,Sciatica Treatment,Back Pain Treatment
I first came to the Shield Clinic in November 2015 with neck and lower back pain and sciatica. After a full course of treatment I feel much better,there is less pain in my back and I hadn't have a sciatica since.

The personel is really nice and friendly. Always make you feel welcome.The treatments rooms are well equipped. I would hardly recommend Shield Clinic to anyone with back problems as they know hope to help you with pain and you can see the difference very quick.

"Only been going a short time and have had relief from the pain!"

Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
I did an internet search for an osteopath/chiropractor and the shield clinic came up and had good reviews so I made an appointment as I have been having thoracic back pain for many years which was affecting my posture.
I also have fibromyalgia which is a condition that affects the muscles. I had my first appointment with Ryan who completed a scan and a through assessment of my back. The following week I had some adjustments and attended the fit back class on a tues evening. I was advised to do the exercises twice a day and Ryan advised me not to be tough on myself if I was having a stressful time and missed doing them. This really helped as I felt guilty when I couldn't manage to do the exercises. The continued with the exercises and with the adjustments I have gone a week with no pain as I am normally in pain everyday. I would definitely recommend Ryan at the shield clinic and feel it is money well spent as I have only been going a short time and have had relief from the pain!!!!

The clinic is very clean and tidy and the staff are friendly and professional.
You never wait long to be seen and there are refreshments in the waiting area.

"Friendly relaxed atmosphere"
5 50Reviewed 29 Dec 2014 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Sports Chiropractic
I first found this clinic by searching "what clinic" for best local chiropractic practises. The Shield Clinic came up immediately. My girlfriend made and emergency call as my pain levels were very high, they fit me in the following day.

My pain had worsened substantially due to the incorrect advice I had been given by 5 other medical professionals I had seen over the previous two months. I was due away to work the following week and I really was in need of correct medical attention or risk my livelihood.

When I got there I was surprised by the friendly relaxed atmosphere. I was assessed and treat by Nayia. She was fantastic, I hobbled in to the clinic after months of pain, 90 mins later I managed to walk out straight backed and in substantially less pain.

I have been to see Nayia at the Shield clinic twice a week every time I return from sea. After 12 sessions I feel fantastic. I can walk properly again, I am even getting back in the gym. My job is no longer in threat. I will continue to follow the excellent advice of the clinic. I can't thank them enough.

In Feb. 2013 I sneezed and collapsed to the floor in agony. I had never felt pain like it. I couldn't stand upright for days and couldn't sit at all. After several weeks of never ending pain I sought help from elsewhere and was told that I had a bulging disc in my back. After several treatments, I reached the point where I felt that I wasn't making further progress and was still in pain. My husband had come across an advert for The Shield Clinic on Groupon and I decided give the clinic a go in the hope that the diagnostic tests and a different method of treatment may help to ease my pain.

I was nervous about my first appointment but was immediately put at ease. The clinic is immaculate and all the staff are very professional, friendly and so very supportive. Initially I saw Alan three times a week then as things improved twice, then once a week. I have done the spinefit exercises recommended by John every day and they really help. I took advice from Alan and changed my pillow, which has made a big difference.

A year after starting treatment I am pain free most of the time and have recently been promoted to a 'maintenance' program, visiting for an adjustment just once a month. I have had setbacks along the way - I fell off a quad bike at Easter and really hurt my left shoulder and elbow and I am plagued by neck problems which Alan discovered for himself - but both John (a great physio) and Alan have treated and I have made great progress.

When Alan left the practice to move to Australia I was apprehensive, however Nyah has taken his place and she is brilliant - she has a lovely, professional bedside manner and is very thorough. Even after 2 treatments with her, pain that I had has greatly reduced. I am back to cycling and am living a pain free life again.

"I would recommend"
4 50Reviewed 16 Jul 2014 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Child Chiropractic Adjustment
I was introduced to Shield Clinic via a Groupon voucher my wife bought me about a year ago. I had suffered from lower back pain for several years before, which threatened me being able to play my favourite game of golf. After treatment by Alan and his team the pain has virtually gone and I can play much more regularly. In fact, last October I won a competition with my playing partner at our club and I have just returned from a week playing gold in Cyprus, where I played 5 times. This would have been unthinkable a year ago. I would recommend Alan and his friendly and professional team.

"The treatment has been carried out with sensitivity"

Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
When I first visited the clinic it was in desperation. I was hoping to get some relief from the whiplash injuries I had suffered over a year ago as I don't like relying or taking medication. I have been impressed by the professionalism of all of the staff, their welcoming, high quality customer service. The premises are clean and well maintained.

The treatment has been carried out with sensitivity, empathy and to a very high standard. Initially after the first 3 or 4 treatments I was experiencing some pain and discomfort but as the treatments have continued my overall health has improved and I have felt an overwhelming feeling of well being. My posture has improved, I have more energy and more interest in my work, home life and family. I used to feel so depressed with the pain and discomfort returning from work only to lie down to try to get some relief from the pain. Thank you for giving me my life back.

"Noticed a lot of improvement"
4.8 50Reviewed 28 Jan 2014 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Chiropractor Consultation
After suffering from lower back and neck pain over a number of years, and a number of visits to my GP, I knew it was time to find alternative treatment. I had heard of chiropractors, but never thought that this treatment would make much difference as pain was part of life as I thought, after visiting Shield Clinic. Meeting Alan, he diagnosed the problem, been going for treatment for a couple of months now, noticed a lot of improvement, I can sleep and sit for longer periods as before had a lot of pain, migraines or few and far between can also get through the day without painkillers.

36 adjustments, fit spine class

I am absolutely delighted with the treatment I have had so far. I have had 3 courses of treatment for neck and back pain/stiffness and the difference in the amount of movement and no longer being in pain is remarkable. As a result I am able to sleep really well and feel so much better in myself. Dr Scott and his staff are professional, friendly and very helpful.The fees/costs are made clear to one at the outset.

Chiropractic Adjustment

After suffering with agonising back pain, I contacted the clinic and spoke to Alan who assured me that he could help. I was given a scan and an assessment which enabled Alan to set out a care plan which was tailor-made to my needs. He gave me his diagnosis and after a MRI scan with the NHS, Alan was right! I have tried different treatments and along with Alan's expert advice and the fantastic care from his team, I was able to make huge steps in my recovery. I am now back to work full time and feel like a different person!I still attend to maintain my recovery and am always made to feel welcome as soon as I would through the door. I would thoroughly recommend this clinic to anybody who has pain in their life as I'm 110% sure Alan could help. Change your life today!
