the history behind Perfitt Chiropractic
I have been practicing as a Chiropractor for over 9 years. I first studied anatomy, physiology and therapeutic massage and qualified as a therapist in 1998. After this I qualified as a remedial/sport massage therapist. In 1999 I achieved a HND in Advanced Health and Fitness Studies with Leisure Management.
I then decided that I would like to help people with back and other related problems so I studied at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic for a degree in human chiropractic and qualified in 2004.
Since then I’ve studied numerous techniques, including Activator and KST chiropractic technique which are both low force and adjust the whole body as well as the problem area. These techniques can be done with the patient fully clothed, with no twisting or crunching of the body and is suitable for all ages. I have also been qualified in acupuncture since 2010.

Colin is also qualified in Acupuncture and approaches this with the same degree of professionalism as his Chiropractic work. It is great to be able to receive treatment for mind, body, spirit and emotional conditions that acupuncture adds to the already excellent work he does. I am very pleased to be able to recommend this treatment.
Colin is a health professional with such a friendly and helpful disposition I feel confident to recommend him to anyone needing treatment. I have the greatest respect for his ability and his professional opinion. I know how much he has helped me.
Colin is an extremely competent chiropractor and has also recently given me acupuncture for migraines and muscle pain. This, for someone who has a fear of needles, is nothing short of a miracle! The fact that I even willingly went back for more is a testament to Colin’s patience and good humour, which never fails, despite my protests at having anything midly uncomfortable done to me.
I would unreservedly recommend him as a chiropractor and have, in fact, done so. Colin has treated and cured my husband’s whiplash injury with acupuncture after my husband tried a physiotherapist and an osteopath, to no avail. He has also successfully treated my son, daughter and mother-in-law, who all have been pleased with the results.
Just a quick note to say thank you for all of your life changing treatment and invaluable advice. Having been on crutches for several months with a lower back injury, I am now able to walk freely most of the time and now only occasionally with sticks. For the first time in years I can have a bath – and get out of it without help! I can see and feel the improvements after every visit. You are a life saver!! Thank you.
I do not feel rushed during a treatment and Colin listens to what I have to say. I am very happy to recommend him to others
