Fast Effective Pain Relief

If you are suffering from a sudden attack of severe pain we will help get rid of it fast at our Chiropractic Clinic in Chester. We will diagnose the problem, treat you, give you advice and a long term exercise programme.

If you have suffered for more than a few weeks you may need a more holistic approach. We will work with you to get to the root of the problem and to help resolve it for good.

Our Guarantee

Depending on your age and specific needs you will require an individual approach. We have unique plans for work injury, sudden flare ups, chronic pain, arthritis, nerve damage (eg sciatica), pregnancy pain,  sport injuries, and peak performers such as dancers and athletes. Our Chiropractors in Chester aim to get your body functioning better and relieve your pain as quickly as possible

We guarantee to

  • Listen carefully
  • Take a medical history
  • Check your posture, muscle tone and spinal mobility
  • Discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan
  • Treat you to get you out of pain in the short term
  • Devise a long term rehabilitation programme if necessary

Our Approach


After taking a full medical history and performing spinal, orthopaedic and neurological examinations, we rule out any serious pathology and make a medical diagnosis (eg slipped disc)


This means exploring how muscles and joints move together. How is the body working? Are muscles over-tight or too weak? Are the spinal joints moving correctly without restriction?


Finally we make an holistic assessment. This means looking at other factors that may influence the problem such as posture, stress, work, diet and the feet

Diagnostic Ultrasound Scan

Ultrasound  imaging is an excellent way to find the cause of your joint/muscle pain. That is why we offer it free to all of our chiropractic patients in Chester and St Asaph. Ultrasound is well known for creating images of babies in the womb, but it also used to create diagnostic musculoskeletal  imaging of the joints, muscles, and other tissues.  Unlike X-rays and MRI scans, ultrasound, is safe and unobtrusive.

Video Exercise programs

As part of your chiropractic treatment programme in Chester, you will be given exercises which you can see on your phone, tablet or PC. These will be tailor made to suit you and may include mobilisation (movement), stretching, core work, strengthening and postural work.

Mr Massey's input has been kind, professional, caring and most importantly based on sound scientific judgements. It has not only been a healing experience with him but also a learning one. Very often we forget that each part of the body is connected to the other parts and the holistic approach is the best way for long term well-being and happiness.

Even after the first appointment I couldn’t believe the difference, it felt like a huge weight had literally been lifted off my head, and for the first time in over 10 years I didn’t have a headache. Steve has taught me how to relax both my body and mind and, for a long period of time, I have not had a headache. I can honestly say it has really changed my life.

Steve helped get me back on my feet and back to work in just a few weeks. That would have been good enough but then an extended treatment over the next few months had me back in the gym and rebuilding my back muscles. The work with Steve now means that I can actually feel the health of my spine and correct issues before it becomes a painful problem.

D. Heaton-Rue

I have a condition called symphysis pubis diastasis (SPD) which is extremely painful and can be completely debilitating. I have seen my midwife, consultant obstetrician and physiotherapist but none of them has been able to help me. They have offered me strong pain-killers, a very long stay in hospital and early induction of my labour. 1 treatment a week with Stephen Massey changed my life.
