Stuart has over 30 years of experience since qualifying as a chiropractor in 1991 and is a fellow of both the Royal College of Chiropractors and the European Academy of Chiropractic. He established Skelian Chiropractic Clinic in 1998 with the sole aim of providing the very highest quality of patient care.

In addition to working in the clinic, Stuart is the Director of Academic Affairs for the Royal College of Chiropractors and a member of the College’s Health Policy Unit. He also sits on the Professional Conduct Committee of the General Chiropractic Council, and is a chiropractic examiner.

Stuart continues to lecture both nationally and internationally on a wide variety of subjects including evidence-based quality care and professional standards. He has a special interest in pain management and is a member of the Pain Faculty of the Royal College. Stuart is married with 3 children and lives just outside Cheltenham where his wife, Vivien, is a GP.



Stuart strongly believes in providing evidence-based care that is tailored to the individual circumstances of each patient, addressing their aims and expectations. This usually involves using a variety of techniques to manage pain and getting patients active again, but his philosophy for care is also focused on supporting people to self-manage chronic complaints, and reduce the likelihood of recurrences.
