Chiropractic is a holistic healthcare profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health.
There are various types of chiropractic treatments, but most commonly, chiropractic is a type of manual therapy, where chiropractors use their hands to make adjustments to your joints, concentrating mainly on the spine. Chiropractic is a regulated health profession in the UK concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders that may affect your musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractors understand that adjustments (manipulations) performed on the body can help alleviate pain, improve function and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is a clinically proven treatment for soft tissue injuries. A shockwave is defined as a sound wave that passes through the body and is not an electrical pulse.
Treatment initiates a pro inflammatory response in the tissue where the shockwaves have been applied. The body responds by increasing the blood circulation and metabolism in the impact area which in turn accelerates the body’s own healing processes. The shockwaves break down injured tissue and calcifications.
Our vision is to provide the highest level of specialist chiropractic care, treatment and prevention techniques to people suffering with acute and chronic back and neck pain in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding villages.
We provide you with a specially tailored plan that not only focuses on reducing the pain, immobility or discomfort you are experiencing, but also considers the possible causes of your condition i.e. your lifestyle, any genetic disorders, age and general health.
By helping you to understand your condition in more detail and by addressing possible causes and triggers – we will ensure that you not only receive the best treatment possible but that you are provided with the extra support and advice needed to manage your condition long-term.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Estimates suggest that one of every 10 men will suffer from ED at some point during his lifetime.
It is important to understand that in most cases, ED is a symptom of another, underlying problem. ED is not considered normal at any age, and may be associated with other problems that interfere with sexual intercourse, such as lack of desire and problems with orgasm and ejaculation.
Sport massage is a manual therapy treating soft tissue pain and weakness and is widely used to recover from intense exercises. The sports massage therapist focuses on the individuals’ needs and athletic goals.
Sports massage, applied by skilful professional, is the most effective therapy for treating muscle tension and improving imbalances in the muscular and skeletal system. It uses hands-on techniques to work on muscles, tendons and ligaments. This helps to release tension, improve blood circulation, stimulate or suppress nerve activity and remove waste products such as lactic acid. Sports massage also relieves mental tension and therefore helps with preparation to any intense physical activity in the future.

It is a natural substance which is found in your body and joints.
It provides lubrication for the joints.
Synovial fluid enables lubrication and shock absorption. This allows for the joint to move more freely without friction.
Hyaluronic acid’s properties also help protect bone from injury. This is known as viscoelastic.
Osteopathy is a method of treatment which aims to address the underlying areas of dysfunction that lead to painful episodes. It looks at “the knock on effects” of dysfunction throughout the whole body which accumulate and result in the body’s inability to compensate causing pain and restriction in mobility.
In this way osteopathy attempts to differ from most other manual therapies as treatment will not necessarily focus on the area that is in pain which can seem peculiar to patients at first.

Gary and Orit are a fantastic, professional and welcoming team. Gary has helped to relieve my hip and back pain caused by pregnancy. I can now play with my children properly and I'm so very grateful to him for this! My children have been into a couple of my appointments with me and now regularly ask when they can see 'Gary the Pirotractor' again. I wholeheartedly recommend Tunbridge Wells Chiropractic.Cera ThorpePatient
I was in agony from plantar fasciitis when I first visited Gary. Fast forward four sessions of shockwave therapy and the searing pain has all but gone. I couldn't be more grateful to him after months of absolute misery. I highly recommend his treatment for any fellow PF sufferers.Lis KeyPatient
Amazing, through this lockdown period I’ve had nothing but trouble with my back. On leaving a session I always feel so much better. No one better than Imogen. Very professional and makes sense of it all for you. Imogen is the one!Stefan WarnerPatient
Wonderful. I have been twice now, have to stop attending for a bit due to Covid. I was treated by Imogen, not only is she friendly and professional but she also made me feel very comfortable. She talked me through the treatment and worked wonders for my back. I can’t wait to go back.Hazel JensPatient
I have been attending appointments with Gary since September and it has done my back the world of good! The clinic is inviting and easily accessible, the staff are friendly and the communication by the entire company is phenomenal. Highly recommend!!Sharna CockramPatient
I can highly recommend Imogen Winter for osteopathy and Sam Camps for Chiropractic treatment. Both have worked as a team for me and the care and treatment has been outstanding.Neil WinboltPatient
When I started seeing Gary my lower back was so painful that any pressure on it caused me to wince. I had constant pain and discomfort and was on a daily routine of pain meds. However after 3 months of treatments my pain levels have reduced so much, the pain medication isn’t needed as often and I feel like my quality of life is so much better. I’m very grateful to him for his help!Liz WhitePatient
After suffering with shoulder and neck pain for a couple of months, I thought I would see if the chiropractic clinic could help. Imogen put me at ease straight away. She is very friendly and professional, and I could feel a difference in my neck and shoulders after my first appointment, which I was really pleased with. Even with the COVID-19 restrictions my experience has been very positive. Highly recommend!!Emily GumbrellPatient
Highly recommend - If your experiencing any pains or niggles, I highly recommend to give Imogen a try. I had suffered with nagging neck pain and a stiff lower back for a while.Chris OwensPatient
Imogen promptly found the cause of the issue and clearly explained it to me.
She was polite, professional and thorough in her osteopathy and I will be sure to use her again in the future.
I couldn't recommend Gary and Orit highly enough! I have been working with Gary for just over 3 weeks now and the improvements I have felt in my lower back already have been incredible.Michael PotterPatient
Through the weekly treatment sessions, Gary has installed the confidence within my abilities to get back to playing the sports that I love.
