Matt is a General Chiropractic Council registered Leicester Chiropractor. He trained for 5 years at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon, and holds a 1st class degree in McTimoney Chiropractic.
He was originally drawn to McTimoney Chiropractic as a result of back pain following a rugby accident. He sought various forms of therapy from numerous practitioners, but was most impressed with McTimoney Chiropractic. He says of his original McTimoney Chiropractor Lydia Beech “I expected Lydia to be one more therapist who wouldn’t really be able to help with my back problem, but I should have had more faith: having hobbled into my first session in disabling pain, I was able to walk out normally. I was shocked at how much better I felt, and how quickly Lydia was able to help me. I didn’t look back”. He decided to train as a Chiropractic Practitioner before becoming a Leicester Chiropractor.
Matt's Chiropractic technique is a gentle approach to treatment which is far removed from the ideas many people hold of chiropractic. As such, it is suitable for nearly all patients, young and old alike.

Matt believes in a multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of his patients where necessary. He works closely with other therapists to whom he refers patients should he feel they would benefit from a different approach, including physiotherapists, acupuncturists, massage therapists and exercise and rehabilitation specialists. Matt welcomes the opportunity to work alongside GPs and Clinicians who regularly refer patients.
Matt is keen to help his patients with rehabilitation using exercises and postural awareness to maintain their health.
Experience has shown Chiropractic to be valuable as a general health and maintenance treatment and not just for pain relief. Matt has a strong following of patients who come regularly for wellness care. Don't forget, health is not just the absence of pain!
Matt has a particular interest in ergonomics and posture. He won the research prize sponsored by the College of Chiropractors in 2007 for his work on using computer warnings to improve posture and reduce musculoskeletal problems in school children. His work in this field has since been published in the journal Clinical Chiropractic. He feels strongly that postural awareness from an early age can help younger generations from developing many of the postural syndromes which he sees in adults so often in clinic. For that reason, he periodically visits schools to deliver the message directly to students.
