Chiropractor for Posture:

“To Live a Long, Active, Energetic Life, Few Things Matter More Than Good Posture”

-American Journal of Pain Management 1994, 4:36-39

Over the last 20 years Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has developed the “hybrid” Dorsi Method for the management of postural problems.

Chiropractor For Posture

Firstly it utilises established Chiropractic CBP hands-on treatment protocols. In CBP the Doctor of Chiropractic moves your spine in a very gentle and ultra-precise way to stimulate the correction of abnormal spinal curvatures, or the improvement of the curvatures that you do actually want… The spine is a complicated thing!

  • Chiropractic BioPhysics® Posture Corrective Adjustments

  • Mirror-Image Traction

  • Schroth Rehab Programmes

In complex cases we will also use “Mirror-Image” traction, which involves you laying on a foam wedge that is shaped to suit your spine. It is called mirror-image because you lay on the wedge in exactly the opposite way to how your spine usually sits. At first this can feel weird, so we build you up from just a minute or two to 20 minutes which is the point of maximum traction of the spinal muscles and ligaments.

Although CBP is growing in popularity, there are still only a few experienced CBP practitioners in the UK. This is the point that most CBP Doctors would stop, but with a background in rehabilitation, working with elite sports teams Dr Potts wanted an advanced stage to rebuild your spine so that it can support this new movement and positioning. Eventually, after years of research, Dr Potts trained in the Schroth Technique which was developed purely for the rehabilitation of postural abnormalities such Scoliosis and other spinal curvatures.

Our rehab team will teach you simple exercises and ways to sit, walk, stand and lay. The principles are very simple because we are looking to change your spinal patterns for as much as your day as possible. This has been proven to be so effective because it differs from other approaches that look to give you 30 minute workouts, but do not consider the other 23.5 hours in a day!

  CLINIC HOURS

Tuesday & Thursday8:00 – 7:00
Friday8:00 – 2:00

Our principal Chiropractor Dr Matthew ABJ Potts has over 20 year experience in healthcare and has developed the unique Dorsi Method that has a waiting list for other practitioners to learn.

Rather than treating everyone the same, our goal is to find the cause of your problems and really understand WHY they have happened. Your treatment plan will be unique to you. The hands-on treatment you receive will be provided by the Chiropractor or Osteopath and a qualified sports therapist. The Chiropractor or Osteopath will take overall responsibility for your care and provide any recommendations plus the spinal manipulation component of your care. Your sports therapist will work on the soft tissues by providing deep tissue massage, traction or stretching and will take care of your rehabilitation: your homework (if necessary.)

The clinic offers a state of the art diagnostic suite including Colour Ultra HD and 3D diagnostic ultrasound and a GE Direct Digital X-ray system due to be installed in early 2019. We also use the latest posture scanners using Infra-red imaging to build a photo-realistic postural avatar of your body. From this scan we can assess your posture, show you where your body is dysfunctional, identifying potential causes for the condition to relapse and most importantly, we re-assess you at regular intervals during your treatment plan without any additional radiation.

Our treatment protocols are ultra specific to your body and may include traction sessions stretching your spine in the exact opposite (Mirror-Image) to its usual incorrect position. You will have a personalised rehabilitation plan designed by our Masters Degree Level trained Rehab Consultant.

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.
