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
I have been having adjustments at this Chiropractor clinic for over eight years and although I live in Oxford it is well worth the trip as Simon Clark is the best chiropractor I have ever had. Thanks to him and the lovely reception team who always accommodate my appointment times; I am mobile and happy.Sylvia Buckingham 08/01/20
Thank you every one at Ridgeway Health and Well-being. Sylvia B
I went for an assessment at the point that it was too painful to run more than 10 miles which wasn’t ideal as I was training for a series of 100 mile ultra marathons.Claire Smedley 02/07/19
6 weeks of intensive adjustments got me to the start line of the first one. I actually completed it without too much pain.
8 weeks later during which I’ve had regular adjustments as well as time in the rehab gym, & I’ve completed races equivalent to 11 marathons!
None of this would have been possible without Mark’s treatment.
For me its working, just wish I had been to see them years ago. Not had any pain killers since starting. After my course I will still visit once a month to keep on top of things, I hope/aim to never to be in such pain again. Excellent friendly staff and good fun in the rehab gym (or should I not say it fun!!)Helen Merron 10/05/18
For the past 9 weeks I have been attending the clinic and having my adjustments done by Dr Simon Clarke, who at the start of the programme promised me that he could improve my pain and posture, living with Scoliosis. I never thought that my back and overall wellness would ever be this good, I just feel improvements week by week. I have now started rehab in the gym with Martin who makes you feel very welcome and is so helpful. Thank you to Helen and Poppy it is never too much trouble when you have to change appointments. I work full time and thought I would never be able to complete the programme but the Clinic make it very easy. Thank you.Teresa Edwards 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.
