After treating people for nearly 50 years Michael Bassett will be retiring at the end of November

We have limited appointments available in St Albans.

We are making our best efforts to keep everyone safe, appointments have been spaced out to reduce contact.
You are asked to wash your hands as soon as you arrive.

If you feel at all unwell, please reschedule your appointment and get tested.

If you need help, call me and arrange to see our Chiropractor in St Albans to find out how Chiropractic can help you.

Chiropractors are specialists in problems with the framework of bones and muscles that support the body (the musculoskeletal system) not just your back.

“If you always do what you've always done,
You will get what you always got."

If you are hurting, and are finding life difficult, muscles or joints stiff in the morning, or painful, then consulting me for chiropractic care can help speed your recovery before it stops you completely. Prevention is better than cure, catching mechanical problems early lets you get on with your life pain free. Most of our new patients have been told about us by someone they know who has been to the clinic and appreciates the care they have received from their chiropractor and the improvement they have felt. People who have come for chiropractic care with pain, stiffness, pins and needles or numbness in their joints.

I could help you too. Please call or email me, I have information leaflets I can send you, I can arrange a chat or book a consultation with a chiropractor for you when you can talk about your symptoms, have a physical examination and diagnosis and if appropriate some treatment.

Age isn't a problem, I see people from new babies upwards. More important is the question, 'Is there anything going on that means you shouldn't be treated'. Qualifying as a chiropractor involves extensive study, both initially and ongoing. I am trained as a primary care practitioner, you do not need to be referred by your doctor. If treatment is not appropriate for you, I will tell you, either referring you to your doctor or suggesting a more appropriate practitioner.

You will get an individually tailored treatment program. The St Albans Chiropractic Clinic offers friendly, professional care. We are here to help you, your family or your friends . . . call me, then pass it on.

Here is a thought . . .
Vitamin D
Often referred to as ‘the sunshine vitamin’, vitamin D is created when sunlight touches the skin. The positive effects of this vitamin on healthy bones have long-been recognised. What’s now becoming apparent is the many other ways it supports good health. Unfortunately, modern lifestyles mean that, for many, levels of this vital nutrient within the body have dramatically dropped and Public Health England now recommend everyone in the UK take a vitamin D supplement in the autumn and winter.

If you have concerns about this, talk to your chiropractor. We stock Nutri Advanced Vitamin D3 with K2 drops and Vitamin D3 Lemon Melts.

The Importance of Omega 3

On 15th February the BBC2 program “Trust Me, I'm a Doctor” demonstrated that many people have low Omega 3 levels leading to a High Risk indicator for Health Problems particularly Heart Disease.

A trial in Liverpool showed that this risk factor could be lowered to Low Risk by eating two portions of oily fish, like Salmon or Mackerel, a week. However, lots of people do not like oily fish!

Taking a good quality supplement has the same effect. BUT you need to look carefully to ensure the supplement provides 400-500mg of DHA and EPA not just '500mg Fish oil'. Some of the supplements they tested had oxidised making is ineffective.

If you have concerns about this, talk to your chiropractor. We stock Eskimo-3 oil and capsules. The oil contains 1600mg of Omega-3 in a 5ml dose. The capsules contain 540mg in 3 capsules.

"Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the functions of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft tissue manipulation.". (World Federation of Chiropractic 2001)
