Our team can help you with most conditions involving your spine & other joints such as shoulders, hips, knees, ankles & elbows. We can also treat muscle injuries and long-term problems that have started to affect your posture.

The first Step is to book a consultation with our Doctor of Chiropractic…

At the end of this consultation (talking) part of the appointment the doctor will proceed to the examination. If they feel that you are suffering with something that we cannot help with, we have a unique policy that we will refer you to the appropriate practitioner and you will not be charged for your appointment.

We can help most people that come to our clinic, but we have set this policy to give you peace of mind.

Dr Matthew ABJ Potts, our principal Doctor of Chiropractic is a specialist in the field of posture and spinal curvatures such as Scoliosis with over 20 years experience. He uses a unique hybrid of Chiropractic and the Schroth technique.

Schroth is the most scientifically validated non-surgical way of working with spinal curvatures.

The Dorsi Spinal Institute is a teaching clinic for other practitioners and is the UK’s leading Dorsi Spinal Clinic. Dr Potts is supported by Sarah Upsall BSc MSc – an injury rehabilitation specialist who has joined us from Leeds Rhinos RFC. She will be involved in your treatment with the doctor and sets your rehab plans; making sure that once you get well… you also STAY well.

    Outstanding patient care... We came across Dorsi when a family member needed specialist support for a spine condition; support that initially only seemed to be available in London. Dr Potts, Sarah and the rest of the team have gone above … More and beyond to help us. The level of care they have provided, their professionalism and dedication to their work is amazing to see! Thank you.

    Throughout the pandemic I have received regular e-mails from the Institute concerned about both myself and my family's health and informing me about the work being done at the Institute. This detailed the works being done to exceed … More the requirements of both the Government and national regulatory bodies as well as new works which would take the Institute to the forefront of international practice. All of this was communicated in an exceedingly professional way which was very readable and relevant to my situation. Exercise regimes were prepared for me on a personal level in order for me to maintain, or hopefully improve, my movement whilst being in lock-down. The Health and Safety requirements are particularly important and these were discussed in detail which was very reassuring and left you feeling that, when we are able to return, that has been, and will be, implemented to make everything as welcoming, safe and personal as possible.

    These guys are amazing! I have been in pain for years and seen countless Dr's about it. I have EDS so need to be careful with my joints, Dr Matt knew all about EDS and put me at ease straight away. My pain was gradually getting … More better but then the virus struck. I wasn't left on my own though, I had a rehab plan sent to me and when I had a flare up of pain I was sent further exercises and advice to help me ease it. I can't wait to get back to having my adjustments as they have quite literally changed my life. 5 massive stars ✨

    My daughter has been diagnosed with scoliosis & told she might need surgery if it gets worse, but after seeing the Dorsi team for six months her curve has stopped getting worse & has actually started to get better.

Nathan Thurston
Nathan ThurstonSports Rehab intern

I am a final year undergraduate Sports Rehabilitator at the University of Nottingham. My main interests with Sports Rehabilitation are into the effects of soft tissue therapy and the way the intervention can help patients in a variety of ways. I am particularly interested in the lower back due to my sporting background which is cricket. The lower back is a common area injured in cricket and finding out more about the rehabilitation is very interesting to me. I am a regular gym goer and if I am not studying or working I can be found in the weight room.
