Chiropractic is a healthcare profession concerned with the health of ligaments, tendons, muscles and joints. Probably best known for helping people with back pain (including the neck) and head aches and pains. Once the felt sense of Chiropractic Care is known in a persons body they tend to then consult their Chiropractor for a range of related health conditions. If you have a concern about your muscles, joints, tendons and or ligaments you are in the right place.
Chiropractic is often cited as meaning done by hand (Greek) but can also mean touch applied in a customary way (Ancient Latin). The customary way is today known as the technique of the Chiropractor. There are at least ten different techniques practised by Chiropractors in the UK, meaning you could have very different experiences depending upon what Technique or type of chiropractor you see.
About Fascia First Chiropractic (FFC)
So named because fascial tissue could be damaged in Lee’s opinion by fast movement interventions associated with some Chiropractic Techniques. Once fascia has been checked for fluidity and corrected where needed then fast movements are safe for long term care and not just short term relief. Fascial techniques are not taught at chiropractic schools this is something that Lee has independently learnt through concepts and exercises in Yoga and Tai chi. Feeling fascia is so important he considers it first. A fascial approach leads seamlessly and at no extra cost on to a restorative Chiropractic Care Plan.

About Lee Wickham
Lee graduated as a Chiropractor in 2001 from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic and was voted in as a Fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractors in 2008 by his peers. Lee gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Governance in 2011 from the University of South Wales and graduated from Cardiff University Law School in 2019 with an LLM degree specialising in legal aspects of medical practise. Outside of clinical practise he enjoys cycling, park runs, swimming, yoga and qi-gong.
Lee is so passionate about how he can help people that he has set aside a practice space in his home as well as running treatment sessions in other clinical settings. Reasoning that the space in which restorative interventions are given is secondary to facilitating the body’s own healing response and relieving a person of their symptomatic experience.
Teaching and Presenting
Lee has provided teaching time to the next generation of Chiropractors at the University of South Wales and at the AECC and given his time to present Continuing Professional Development topics to the current generation of Chiropractors and Osteopaths.
