After a big fall whilst playing sports at a young age, Matt ended up crooked and contorted with lower back pain. His family noticed he was struggling and not being able to play sports at 10 years old, was a disaster. Luckily his mother took him straight to the local Chiropractor and in his words; “my life changed dramatically.”
The Chiropractic care got him back on his feet and loving life again. He regularly visited the Chiropractor as he grew up, keeping him in good health and developing nicely. This gave him the motivation and determination to go to University for four years to become a Chiropractor.

Since graduating Matt has completed postgraduate training in dry needling (a medical form of acupuncture), Chiropractic paediatrics and pregnancy, sports performance, fascial release and sports taping. He loves to work with people of all ages and abilities, but most of all loves working with children and mothers to be. The other end of the spectrum often being the professional athletes he’s worked with for sports injury reduction and enhancing people’s performance.

Outside of work, Matt’s a keen cyclist and climber. In 2012 he was fortunate enough to be selected for the GB team for Escrima (Philipino martial arts). He’s a keen cook and enjoys being outdoors as much as possible.
