What is Chiropractic?
The Chiropractic profession has been established for over 100 years and is practised in more than 100 countries worldwide. Chiropractors are specialists in assessing and restoring joint function. We work with all the joints of the body and pay particular attention to the joints of the spine. When joints don’t work well it can often result in:
- back and neck pain
- headaches arising from the neck
- shoulder, elbow and wrist pain
- hip, knee, ankle and foot pain
Often people think that nothing can be done for these aches and pains or think they must accept them. Chiropractors use techniques such as massage, stretching, manipulation, mobilisation, S.O.T blocking and medical acupuncture to improve joint function and relieve symptoms.
Chiropractors assess the cause of the problem
Our chiropractors will try to ascertain the underlying cause of your condition. Often poor joint function can be due to such things as poor postural habits, and muscle imbalances. Your chiropractor will ask questions and advise you about your working environment and your preferred sleeping and sitting postures.
We may also recommend exercises to address any underlying muscle imbalances or poor movement patterns.
Treating the underlying cause of the condition and not only the symptoms helps to prevent your problem from recurring. We encourage our patients to get involved in their recovery and to follow our advice and treatment plan to get the best from their Chiropractic care.

I have a very high regard for the Saffron Walden Chiropractic Clinic for those patients who have chosen to be treated in this way. Jo McCarey and her team demonstrate a high degree of professionalism, kindness and skill. As a GP I believe that good communication with other groups treating our patients is essential. This has always been a particular strength of Jo's practice.

For many years patients of mine have been attending the Saffron Walden Chiropractic Clinic. I have always been very impressed by the clinics professionalism and the way they communicate back to me, as the patient’s GP about the type of treatment patients have had and the progress made. My patients seem very happy with the service that they receive, and I am equally happy to recommend the clinic to them as an effective way for treating many musculoskeletal ailments.

My family and I are all patients of the practice and have had exceptional treatment from all of the chiropractors.
My introduction to Jo McCarey was at the suggestion of my GP in 2003 when I was in constant pain. An x-ray confirmed degeneration of my spine due to osteoarthritis. At the initial consultation I gained an insight of my diagnosis and the discipline of Chiropractic medicine. This was followed by quite intense treatment and I was amazed that within weeks there was a significant reduction in pain. Today with advice and stretching exercises, together with 6 weekly visits to the clinic I remain virtually pain-free and my gratitude for the quality of life I am able to enjoy is beyond words.
The service and treatment at the clinic are exceptional in all areas. Coming to this clinic with my back problems was the best thing I could have done and I believe my work and leisure activities have benefitted greatly from doing so.
A very professional and friendly clinic team who keep me mobile and pain-free.
Your service is not only excellent but extremely personal too. Focused on a holistic approach to the whole person, and in our case the whole family, we can’t recommend you enough.
I’ve used this clinic for many years and have had each of the Chiropractors work on me-all very good. I come here on a regular basis- I say ’they keep me mobile’- can’t praise them enough.
A friendly place with excellent staff which always produces superb results. Highly recommended!
I think this clinic is excellent. The staff are all very friendly and highly skilful. I have had great results and I always recommend this clinic to family and friends.
Excellent Clinic. Gives one confidence.
Chiropractic treatment literally keeps me working. Years of bad posture, hours sitting at a computer and a busy and stressful job have taken their toll on my neck, shoulders and lower back. Following a very painful episode I discovered Jo, my chiropractor, and my regular treatments have helped to keep my joints in good working order. I consider it an essential part of my health care and because of it I am able to stay free and actively working in my ‘middle years’.
As a man of advanced years I rely on Jeremy to keep me in running order which he remarkably has been able to do.
Excellent- What would I do without their help. Thank you.
