She is a firm believer in the benefits of exercises and supports the principles of “Motion is Lotion”. As a competitive gymnast and coach in her youth, she has a wealth of personal experience to go with her training.

Claire treats the a wide variety of patients of all ages and abilities. Over the last few years she has developed a particular interest in caring for young children, as well looking after mothers during and after pregnancy.

We are delighted to welcome her back at the clinic and many of her patients are looking forward to seeing her again. Claire will be working on Monday and Thursday mornings.

Alex Broomsgrove Returns

Alex Broomsgrove Returns

We are delighted to announce that Alex Broomsgrove will be joining the chiropractic team at Skelian at the end of August 2018. Alex was very popular with both patients and staff at Skelian when he worked as a locum for a few months in 2016, and it is great news that he is coming back to stay.

Originally from Bristol, Alex has spent the last few years working in Cambridge, but the lure of the West Country has bought him back and he is now setting up home in Cheltenham.

Alex has specialist training in sports chiropractic, which brings an additional area of expertise to the team at Skelian. He has experience treating a variety of athletes from different sporting backgrounds, ranging from golf, rugby, powerlifting, track and field, as well as iron men and women. Alex has a functional approach to not only treating injuries but looking at the performance of the human body. He is a keen trail runner himself, but also loves any form of outdoor sports. You’ll probably catch him training around Cleeve Hill.

With Alex’s return, we will have a team of 5 chiropractors able to provide a high quality service to a very wide range of patients with many different needs and requirements. If you would like to learn more about the services provided at Skelian Chiropractic Clinic, then please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your individual circumstances with you and advise whether we can help.

Stuart Smellie Awarded Chiropractor of the Year 2016

Stuart Smellie is 2016 Chiropractor of the Year

Skelian’s clinic director, Stuart Smellie, has been announced as winner of the 2016 UK Chiropractor of the Year Award.

Matthew Bennett, president of the British Chiropractic Association, presented the award at a ceremony in Leamington Spa on 1st October. In his speech, he praised Stuart for his 25 years of work for the profession, and in particular the writing of a set of Quality Standards for the Royal College of Chiropractors, the most recent on Chronic Pain that was published in August. He was also recognised for his work for the government regulator, sitting in their fitness to practice panel as well as examining overseas chiropractors wishing to work in the UK.

Stuart has won this award before, in 1998, and becomes the first chiropractor to have ever received it twice:

“It is a great honour and always a particular pleasure to be recognised by your peers. I also hope that this helps to highlight the work that I have been doing at the Royal College of Chiropractors which aims to promote the very best standards of care for the many people who suffer from back and neck pain. The Quality Standards are designed to show everybody, including patients, what high-quality chiropractic care looks like”

Quality Standards are tools designed to help deliver the best possible outcomes for patients. They are a series of specific, concise quality statements that provide markers of high-quality patient care covering the treatment of different conditions. The primary purpose of The Royal College of Chiropractors’ quality standards is to make it clear what quality care is by providing patients, the public, healthcare professionals, commissioners and chiropractors with definitions of high-quality chiropractic care.
