About us

What got us started

David and Graham saw chiropractic have particular improvements for their ageing mother, both physically and mentally, allowing her to live a better and happier life as a freelance artist. When you’re not in pain, and can move more easily with more physical and mental energy, you can live life more to the full. They are now committed to helping others live a whole better quality of life.

"We have seen people endure a long process of prescribed painkillers, injections and even specialist operations. We aim to resolve the root cause without drugs or surgery, getting people back to a healthy and active lifestyle. This helps them to reduce work absence and get their life back."

Graham Elliott (BSc hons)
Muskuloskeletal specialist and masseur

"I've worked for many years as an electronics engineer, particularly in control systems. I still never cease to be amazed at the complexity of the human body and how it keeps everything in balance to maintain health. And when those mechanisms get out of balance we run into pain and ill health."

"There's a lot more than the anatomy and science of the human body that makes it tick. Similarly, helping people get well requires more than just the mechanics. It's this vitalistic approach that makes us slightly different."

“My introduction to musculoskeletal health was initially through a friend’s experience in 1990. Due to posture problems, his life was becoming increasingly difficult. He introduced me to a group of specialist dentists and chiropractors who were collaborating on the interaction between the jaw and neck. This treatment allowed him to live a near-normal life and I felt impelled to get involved."

Although he leads a busy life, Graham makes time for his outdoor hobbies. He also enjoys spending time with friends and family and is a photographer and motorcyclist. Graham is an ITEC 3 qualified masseur.

David Elliott (MChiro)
Associate chiropractor

"I began as an electro-mechanical engineer in the power industry, then later as a technical writer in the pharmaceutical industry. However, I wanted to help people where traditional medicine hadn't been able help them."

"In the early 1990s I was amazed how a chiropractor worked on my neck and shoulder to improve problems with my wrist. However, in the early 2000s, a potentially severe back problem was causing horrendous pain. It was successfully treated with chiropractic and in 6 months I was distance running again. It was this life-changing experience that made me decide that I wanted to help prevent others suffering what I'd been through."

Outside the practice, David is married with two young children and two grown-up daughters and in his spare time enjoys riding his motorbike. He says: “Chiropractic isn’t so much a job, it’s more a way of life.”

David holds a Masters of Chiropractic (M-Chiro) from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic and a Diploma in Human Sciences from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic at the University of Glamorgan. He is registered with the General Chiropractic Council and is a member of the United Chiropractic Association.

David is also working with Clare House GP surgery in Tiverton. He's taken over from Matt Freeman at Willow Chiropractic. Please pass the message on to anyone you know in the area who it might help.
