Doctor of Chiropractic
Mike is a Chiropractor, but also very different to a Chiropractor.
With influences from; sports therapy, rehabilitative massage, nutrition and myofascial release, to acupressure, cranial sacral therapy and Reiki. His approach is holistic to it’s core.
Professionally Mike is known for being able to help the unusual or difficult cases, his favourite parts to treat include shoulders, ankles, knees, hips and breathing systems but his speciality is hands on treatment of neurological pathology; anything from common sciatica to Fibromyalgia and Stress syndromes.
'Something often lost to modern medicine is the understanding that the real doctor is the body, all healing, immune function and repair is done in the end by the innate healing systems of the body. My focus is not on applying a quick fix to the symptom, but helping my clients to understand how they can take control of their own healing systems and support themselves to recover sustainably.' Mike Ford

Personally, Mike loves just about everything and everyone. Naturally very energetic and rambunctious, most often he is found bounding goat-like across the south downs, or reading on his terrace amongst his jungle of plants. Generally prone to being attracted to great complexity he finds joy in most sports, most activities, most music and has a special place for video games… (According to his wife too big of a place)!
