Treatments and services
Our Chiropractic Clinic offers a variety of treatments and services. See what we can do for you and how to get started.
What is chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractors are concerned with the framework of bones and muscles that support the body (the ‘musculoskeletal system’).
Problems with the bones and muscles in the body can be caused by accidents, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and everyday wear and tear. This causes pressure on the nerves in the body.
Chiropractic treatment involves the chiropractor manipulating parts of your spine or joints to remedy these problems. Manipulation involves the precise handling or movement of joints or parts of the spine, sometimes further than they normally move.
A chiropractor may also give you advice on exercise, self-help, diet and lifestyle, and some may also offer rehabilitation programmes."

The Clinic and the community
We have been involved with AFC Bournemouth for many years and remain their Official Performance and Rehabilitation Partner. We are able to offer four sought after places at the club - two with the first team, one with the development squad and another in the academy. These interns assist the team’s medical staff with performance assessments, strength testing, and identifying potential issues that could affect players’ performance as well as treatment. Up the Cherries!
Friends of the clinic
We have an active patient group who promote the clinic within the community and act as liaison between the patients and the clinicians. We would love you to join us please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Community outreach programme
Acting as ambassadors of healthcare and of the AECC university College,our chiropractic interns regularly attend public events as well as schools and colleges to promote the benefits of healthy living, exercise and good posture.
What’s more, our student healthcare professionals can also pop into places of employment, providing employees with free advice and information on preventing work-related injuries.

Chiropractic & you
Here at AECC University College, we continually look for ways to improve, which is where our Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) network comes in. It works by you telling us what you liked or more importantly, what we could have done better, and we use your feedback to educate, evolve and correct.
We’d love to know your thoughts so please get in touch and have your say!
Our last Patient Satisfaction survey was taken in 2015, and we were blown away by the results. A couple of highlights include:
- 98% would 'definitely recommend' us to their friends and family.
- 99% of patients who wanted to see their intern on a specific day got an appointment on that day or sooner.
- 96% said their intern was very good at treating them with care and concern.
- The top three reasons for choosing us were: quality of care (46%), affordability (41%) and recommendation (39%).
What’s more, we listened to the negative feedback you shared and because of it we now have an automatic entrance door, better parking, and much improved gowns.
We love getting it right, so if you’re delighted about something, or concerned about anything, we want you to tell us so we keep on improving.
