Nigel believes in a holistic approach when it comes to treating patients. The aim is not just treating symptoms, but managing them as a whole and improving overall function. As an avid runner and squash enthusiast, he has a particular interest in treating sports-related injuries as well as helping to improve poor postural habits. In his treatment sessions, Nigel adopts numer-ous techniques including chiropractic adjustments (Diversified), taping, soft tissue release tech-niques, and the prescription of specific rehabilitation exercises to aid recovery.
