The revolution in Health Care is underway and the purpose of Ridgeway Health and Wellness is to be a leader of this revolution in England. A study by the American Medical Association reports that people are seeking health care that is congruent with their own values, beliefs and philosophical orientations towards life and health. In our experience, in the thousands of people we have helped recover from a wide range of health conditions, that this is also true here in England. Our aim is to always explain clearly the objectives of chiropractic care and what patients seeking chiropractic services may expect. It is important to us that you and your family understands the role that chiropractic could play in your health care needs, chiropractic is not an alternative therapy, rather chiropractic presents a separate, distinct and necessary element in everyone’s quest for health.
The World Health Organisation defines health as optimum physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. This is the goal of chiropractors like those here at Ridgeway Health and Wellness, working to eliminate interference in the nervous system which chiropractors call subluxations, with a persons innate potential for health and well being. There is only one thing that is more powerful than an idea whose time has come and that is clinics like Ridgeway Health and Wellness that have the passion, commitment and skill, powered by state of the art technology to make the idea a reality.
A chiropractic lifestyle is an idea whose time has come and we welcome the chance to help you and your families’ genetic potential for health and wellbeing.
Patients for over 100 years have experienced a fuller expression of health and life through regular Chiropractic care. We do not believe that health is just the result of effectively treating a symptom. To be healthy you should eat nutritious food every day, take regular exercise and have a nervous system (which enables us to adapt to every physical, emotional and chemical stress we experience) free of interference and so as to express your full human potential. We believe that this is the future of health care and we are proud to be leaders in this approach.
Our commitment to providing bespoke chiropractic care, advising and supporting clients to achieve a healthier lifestyle and delivering a first class customer care service has been the drive in developing Ridgeway Health and Wellness.

Our Raving Testimonials
Excellent professional service. Friendly staff. When I first went I was in a lot of pain. Though a rehabilitation programme and now maintenance programme i have so much more movement and strength, with little pain. I have had back issues for over 30 years and it is now the best it has ever been.Gillian Hall 10/05/18
I have been using Ridgeway medispa since 2014. The reason was that due to a love of rock music in my twenties I loved the music and sadly the head banging ! This resulted in me damaging my vertebrae in my neck and the constriction of my spinal cord. In 2010 I had an operation to relieve the pressure on my spinal cord but sadly that is when all my problems started. I had extreme pain down my arms, restricted mobility in my neck and I'd been prescribed various painkillers the last being offered was morphine ! On hearing the advert on the radio about Ridgeway medispa I popped along to see if anything could be done to relieve my pain. I was seen by Simon and who at once put at ease . X-ray were taken a program of treatment was prescribed. I visited three times a week at first then I was to visit Martin in the rehabilitation gym on site. Martin oversaw my progress and ensured I was doing the exercises correctly to best aid my strength and mobility. Simon then after time reduced my visits as I progressed with the treatment. I now am not on any pain management medication and visit one a month as a maintenance program however should I need to I can book in with reception and speak to Helen who is a very friendly and professional receptionist to arrange an emergency appointment. Friends have said to me about how much I have paid since 2014 and my reply has been that , when you've forgotten what it's like to be pain free and nothing works for you , money is less an issue the relief from the pain is so wonderful and the work that Simon , Mark , Martin and Helen all do to help me overcome pain and Immobility is worth every penny . I couldn't praise them high enough.Giles Butterworth 10/05/17
I cannot rate the level of care I received high enough... I went to Ridgeway with a prolapsed disc, in incredible pain, on all kinds of pain medication and struggling to walk.I am now pain free, and walking normally 🙂Gary Cook 10/02/19
I have been attending Ridgeway Health and Wellness for a few years due to a back injury caused by a car accident. I have monthly maintenance to keep myself inline and it has benefited me greatly. Because of this, when my mother began passing out due to a pain in her shoulder, and the doctors and hospital did not solve the problem for her, we decided to see if there was anything that Simon could do for her too. When we arrived the reception staff were fantastic in letting us know what forms to fill in and making sure we were comfortable in the waiting room. Due to my mother being Italian, there was an Italian girl in the staff, Giulia who attended to my mother and explained everything to her in Italian to make sure she totally understood what was happening every step of the way, from the xrays to the consultation. Even when we returned for the results and treatment plan, Giulia was there to help Simon explain it all. Simon explained that the nerves in her neck were compressed and that was the root of the problem, and her treatment began. She is still in early stages of her treatment plan but the difference is fantastic, she has had no episodes of passing out since. Ridgeway Health and Wellness staff have gone out of their way to be helpful and polite and professional in every aspect of their job and I and my mother would not hesitate to recommend their service to anyone.Dominic Montauro 10/05/18

Ridgeway health and wellness chiropractor Q & A
Misalignments of the spine compromise the proper function of the nervous system by putting pressure on the nerves. Our adjustments are designed to realign the spine thus taking the pressure off the nerves and improving the function of the nervous system.
Nope! It is about the proper functioning of the nervous system. Health and wellness are just as important, so we promote proper nutrition and exercise to aid recovery until you’re feeling like your best self.
Yes, chiropractic is safe.
Adjustment can help to alleviate neck, back and shoulder pain and can help conditions such as postural abnormalities, tension and the inability to relax. By improving the function of the nervous system other improvements may be found.
You will have an initial health consultation to assess your current wellbeing and any specific issues you have, followed by a chiropractic examination, x-rays if necessary and computerised neurological scans to assess the function of the nervous system. Following this, you will be invited back for a report of our findings and a personalised care plan will be developed for you.
Yes, both children and babies can benefit from chiropractic adjustments.
No – adjustments are specific and gentle. They may cause discomfort if you are already in pain but the adjustments themselves are not painful. We advise ice after adjustments to reduce inflammation.
At the clinic we use a combination of corrective care, diversified S.O.T and activator techniques.
Do you have a spine? If you want to find out if we can help you the best idea is to get in touch or book a consultation with one of our experienced chiropractors.
No, Chiropractors are Primary Care Practitioners.
Serious complications from chiropractic adjustments are rare.
The benefits are many and varied but include; less pain, increased energy, improved immunity, improved mobility and better sleep which are all a result of a better functioning nervous system.
Hands-on specific adjustments to the vertebrae to correct misalignments. A handheld tool called an activator may also be used.
There can be. You may experience aches and pains, tiredness or stiffness after treatment, but this is normal as your body adjusts to the change in alignment that we are making. Ice can help alleviate any inflammation experienced.
We have found that chiropractic can also help with weight loss, vertigo, tension, postural abnormalities, migraines and headaches, athletic performance and more.
5 years at university, including hands-on training, followed by mandatory continued personal development.
How long you benefit from care is your choice but once you are aligned maintenance and prevention are recommended.
Yes. In fact, chiropractic care can help alleviate lower back pain as a result of pregnancy.
No, chiropractors do not prescribe medication to clients; chiropractic adjustments aim to get to the root of the problem, rather than mask it with drugs
Yes, pain can often be the last symptom to occur.
No, chiropractic can benefit all ages and sizes.
It varies from person to person. It will usually depend on the chronicity of your condition.
