First Visit:

The Initial appointment with your chiropractor normally takes between 45-60 minutes, where a thorough examination is carried out. This involves asking relevant questions related to your general medical history and also questions related specifically to the problem. Following history taking (when we have a good idea what we are dealing with) we will then carry out a physical examination, assessing the movement of joints/muscles, testing nerves and other relevant medical and orthopaedic testing.

Before treatment is given (providing no further tets/X-rays are required), the patient is sat down and examination findings are discussed. At this point we will tell each patient exactly what is wrong and how we can help you.

Follow up treatments:

Follow up treatments take approximately 15 minutes. You are told in the first visit how many treatments we think you will need. We have found from a recent file audit, that 90% of our patients showed >80% improvement in 4 or less treatments!

Treatment normally involves manipulation/mobilisation of joints to restore normal range of movement, soft tissue techniques to relax down muscles and expert advice.

As we move along in the treatment plan the aim is to see you less and less over time and give you the advice and exercises you need to maintain improvements and prevent a re-occurrence of symptoms. We always use the latest evidence when giving patients advice, so that we know what we are giving you has been tried and tested!


Osteopaths prevent, diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems using manual therapy, exercise and advice. The aim is to promote the best health based on the individual needs of the patient.

Providing care that includes a range of interventions specific to each patient, including:

  • manual therapy techniques
  • physical therapy (rehabilitation and exercise prescription)
  • health advice
  • self-management guidance


There are many benefits of having a sports massage, such as:

  • Increased joint range of motion (ROM)
  • Increased flexibility.
  • Increased sense of well-being.
  • Decreased muscle tension.
  • Decreased neurological excitability (nerves more relaxed)
  • Decreased muscle spasms.
  • Better sleep.

After suffering with Migraines for many years, I decided to book myself some sessions with Mike. I have done a lot of research in the past, and I heard going to see a Chiropractor can really help.I used to suffer with 3 or 4 migraines a week, and at some points it was unbearable. I have been attending sessions with Mike for the last 8 weeks, and I can honestly say its been amazing. Hes really helpful, friendly and makes you feel at ease. He explains everything to you, and tells you what to expect. Iv had 1 migraine in the last 8 weeks, which for me is life changing.I am going to continue booking more sessions with Mike, and have even recommended him to family and friends.

Mike came highly recommended after treating a family member. After being laid up in bed for two days and unable to walk or move Mike soon put me right. A thorough consultation and going forward plan made. I am feeling much better and now moving freely. Also previously suffering from daily headaches these have also decreased. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone.

Would highly recommend. Mike explains everything before starting any treatment, which put me at ease immediately. I have suffered with back and neck pain for some time, as well as headaches. I have seen an immediate improvement, and I am sleeping better than I have in a long time.

Amazing knowledge by Mike, he will put you at ease and explain procedures, methods and recovery times.Mike has a friendly nature and his integrity compliments his work.If you have any issues that require his services, I would highly recommend him as the first choice chiropractor.Having been several times, my lower back, which had been playing up eased significantly as the treatments went along, getting better with each one.Mike is also fully compliant with covid regs so there is no need to worry on that level and the hygiene standard is impeccable

Been having trouble with my back for a while. Got to a point where I was struggling to even bend to pick things up of floor.Went to Mike, who done a complaint assessment on my first visit.Every visit since he has continued to improve my agility to a point where I am able to complete all movements without any problems.Highly recommended, if you have a problem do not hesitate to contact Mike. You only get one body, so look after it.

I have been using the service of Neath Port Talbot Chiropractic Clinic for around 5 months. Mainly concentrating on issues with lower Back, and I have to say the results have been amazing, relieve a lot of the pain I was experiencing. And with the addition of being more flexible the treatment has delivered amazing results and will continue to use the services. On a down side they did assure me that I would be able to hit my golf ball 340 yards but as to date this hasn't happened, although this might be a lack of talent on my behalf. Keep up the good work lads.

Having suffered a car accident over two years ago, I was advised to seek treatment and began looking for a reputable chiropractor. I felt I should share my experience here, as it was due to the google reviews by Mike and Naomi’s other clients, that helped me decide to book an appointment at the practice. I was very pleasantly surprised at how effective my treatment was and the difference in just a few sessions. I get a little anxious about these types of appointments, but it is a relaxing environment. Mike and Naomi are lovely people and put me at ease.Two years on, I still receive maintenance care, as I noticed that not having treatment for long periods was setting me back. Also the suggestions on how I can care for my health holistically is very helpful.I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone.
