Great service, Tom is very reassuring and encouraging. His confident yet, caring approach made me feel at ease and my recovery has definately benefitted from this.

Several months ago I was stricken with severe sciatica, strong pain killers were prescribed by my GP but they had unacceptable side effects. I contacted Skelian and Jamie quickly sorted out my problem, without further medication. During the course of my treatment, I found that Jamie's manipulations of my neck gave a certain amount of relief to the vertigo and muzziness “brain fog”, which I had been suffering from, for the past five years. I am thankful to Skelian and Jamie in particular for his caring approach to my ailments, he has an excellent bedside manner and he has given me beneficial advice to help with my long standing dizziness problems.

Very happy. Jamie was great - friendly and professional. I certainly felt that I was in good hands and could already feel the benefits after my first visit. After three sessions the pain has gone.

I highly recommend the Skelian Clinic. The lovely Aaron has cured my lower back pain in a matter of a few weeks so that I can now resume and enjoy my walks. Everyone at the clinic is very professional, kind and friendly. Thank you.

I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Friendly, professional service. Tom has been fantastic at sorting out my neck and back issues, providing explanation before, during and after treatment as well as providing after care exercises I can do at home. I have been delighted with my treatment so far. Thank you!

About X-Rays

All of our of Chiropractors at Skelian have access to a quick X-ray referral service on a private basis for our patients.

An X-ray is a useful diagnostic tool that allows us to make a swift diagnosis in situations where further investigation is required. Your Chiropractor will discuss with you whether this is necessary, and an X-ray referral will be requested if clinically required.

All X-rays take place at Cobalt Health, a specialised medical charity based in Cheltenham. The images are provided instantly on a disk or via an online portal, which we can then view at our Clinic ahead of your follow up visit and discuss the best course of treatment with you at your next appointment.

Conditions we refer to X-ray

  • Bone fractures
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal fractures
  • Spinal degeneration
  • Scoliosis

What we offer

Skelian has a close partnership with Cobalt Health, who provide both X-ray and MRI diagnostic testing. Our chiropractors are experts in Musculo-Skeletal conditions and are trained to take and read X-rays. 

While we no longer have any X-ray facilities on site, we refer to Cobalt Health, the specialist imaging centre in Cheltenham. This means our patients are seen by experts with high-grade specialist equipment. 

At the follow up appointment with one of our chiropractors, we will discuss in detail your X-ray report and images and explain how the imaging informs your treatment or rehabilitation. At Skelian we believe that patients should be part of the treatment decision process. 

What to expect

An initial consultation with a chiropractor to assess the clinical need for an X-ray is the first step. If the chiropractor thinks you need an X-ray to assist with the diagnosis or decision of your treatment options, the chiropractor will send a referral to Cobalt (if clinically justified). Cobalt will then contact you to arrange an appointment and talk you through the process. Following your X-ray, the images and report will be sent to you on a disk or via an online portal which you can discuss with your chiropractor at your follow up appointment.
