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
Having suffered from highly unpleasant headaches on and off for the last couple of years, I was really becoming worried that my life would revolve around taking pain killers.Someone mentioned to me that they had heard chiropractic work could sometimes help out with headaches (sounds weird, I know) and that I should check it out - I had nothing to lose, so I did, and it has worked absolute wonders. I was suffering from tension headaches which turned out to emanate from stiffness at the base of the neck. Once Dr Mark had got down the root of the problem, over two sessions, my troubles were gone. I can't recommend the treatment highly enough and encourage anyone else suffering from 'incurable' headaches to check them out. 5 stars.M Finch 10/05/16
I work in IT, spending as much as 14-16 hours a day sat down, hunched over a keyboard, phone or book. I suffered from terrible neck, shoulder, back and leg pain so much so that I developed a very disrupted sleeping pattern. Within weeks of starting with Mark & his team I was pain-free, mobile and sleeping more regularly. I was a cynic before starting. I'm a believer now.Christoph Malherbe 10/05/18
When I first went to Ridgeway it was after having 10 weeks of accupunture that would work for about 10 minutes each time and then I would have the shooting pain down my left leg into my foot and big toe.I could not sit down, stand, walk too far without a stick and could only get slight relief by kneeling down with my head on a chair. It was in this position that I went to doctors , physio and any other appointments and also when I went to Medi-spa. This was six months ago and they found after the x-rays that I had a really quite bad bend in my spine and some issues in my neck as well. Now I can sit down and stand up straight !! (which I havent been able to do for years) and take my dogs for a short walk! And I am improving every week a bit at a time.Janet Rendell 10/05/17
Positivity springs to mind. I went along with a very bad back struggling to do the every day things, like getting in and out of a car etc. Now, I am back to doing all of the activities that I used to do , i.e. 9 mile walks, swimming and horse riding. Yes, all in all FIVE star treatment. This is not always a quick fix as it has taken years of abuse on my skeletal system and therefore, this is a process of adjustments and rehab which by giving and explaining the nature of this process has in turn enabled and empowered me to follow the guidance given to me. Many thanks to the team.Pat Mogford 10/07/18

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 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 is 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.

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.

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
