About me

Dr Neil Thomas DC, MChiro, Lic. Ac, PgC, PgD, MRCC (Ortho)

Doctor of Chiropractic & Medical Acupuncturist

I have a great passion for helping people back to health and maximizing their potential. To do this, I use diverse techniques and methods to maximise my ability to help you on your road to recovery; by training in various specialised chiropractic and other manual therapy systems, I have increased my ability to treat a very wide variety of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions.

I provide Chiropractic care and Medical Acupuncture (full body and auricular) as well as a specialist auricular acupuncture technique called Battlefield Acupuncture. I specialise in postural correction and reversal of abnormal spinal curvatures. I also have a special interest in paediatrics, having undergone further training in paediatric chiropractic; I have successfully treated many babies and toddlers over my career.

I have a wealth of experience in treating complicated or stubborn conditions and I take pride in my ability to help all of my patients recover, allowing them to move and feel better and live a life free of pain and dysfunction.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Masters Degree in Chiropractic (MChiro) from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (University of South Wales), a postgraduate Licentiate of Acupuncture (Lic. Ac) from the British Academy of Western Medical Acupuncture (accredited and validated by Liverpool John Moores University), a Postgraduate Diploma (PgD) in Clinical Sciences – Advanced Professional Practice and a Postgraduate Certificate (PgC) in Postgraduate Professional Development (Chiropractic) from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic

I have also been awarded a Diploma of Chiropractic from the British Chiropractic Association and European Academy of Chiropractic. A Diploma of Chiropractic is awarded once a chiropractor has completed one year post-registration training.

I am currently undertaking a Professional Academic Doctorate (DProf) in Health and Social Care with Teesside University and I am due to complete this in 2019. As part of this Doctorate I will be carrying out a randomised controlled clinical Trial (RCT) on a specific area of chiropractic technique.

I am a member of the specialist Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation faculty of the Royal College of Chiropractors and I am the Director of Academic Affairs for the same faculty. I am also a member of the British Chiropractic Association.
