Sport & Athletes
Chiropractic is not a replacement for painkilling drugs (or a quick fix relief).
It is a natural way to stimulate your body to heal itself and this may take time.
Chiropractic is not dangerous. Your chiropractor has trained for over 5 years to use the safest and gentlest techniques available.
Chiropractic is not unconventional. It is scientific and now a mainstream part of healthcare around the world. Thousands of people use chiropractors every day as a part of a good health regime.
“As a professional cyclist I have integrated chiropractic into my training regime.
Thomas has really helped me achieve peak performance on the bike. Whether it was specific care for an injury or helpful stretching advice, he always knows just what will benefit me the most. His overall care and understanding of athletes has been a key factor in keeping me healthy throughout training and competition. I consider chiropractic care an essential element in injury free training and racing, and it
enables me to keep going week in and week out”

Let me thank you for incredible service throughout the year from yourself and the staff of Health on Hand Chiropractic Clinic. The benefits and experience were undeniable. When I began coming to your clinic, I had never been to a chiropractor before and did not know what it was. But now after the whole year of treatment I can surly say that it is worth every single minute that I have spent in your clinic. While coming to your clinic I have forgot about my back, neck pain and just overall body feeling felt tremendous. You also kept most of Leicester Riders basketball players injury free throughout the season. Big thanks again.
