At Back2Health, we integrate chiropractic, soft-tissue & massage therapy, exercise rehabilitation, ergonomics and more to resolve pain and injuries quickly and effectively. Back2Health provides no-nonsense, ethical chiropractic treatment and advice that works.
Fully registered GCC Chiropractor from the Isle of Man (BCA Member), providing services to all the people across the Island. Located at a central Douglas clinic, offering effective and affordable treatments.
Our main focus is on treating you and your symptoms so you can return safely to work. We’re not here to get you on an expensive long term pre-paid treatment plan either, we want to help you as quickly and as best we can.
Our treatments cover a wide range of therapies for an all comprehensive approach.
These are the most common problems that present to the clinic. With the help of our chiropractor, the problem can be diagnosed both quickly and accurately, and treated effectively thus helping you to avoid suffering from chronic back pain problems.
Our modern lifestyle places immense stress on the muscles and joints of our neck and shoulders. Problems that affect the neck can commonly cause headaches or lead to restriction and pain to the upper back, shoulders and arms.
These can be caused by a ‘trapped’ nerve, referred pain from trigger points in muscles and myofascia, and/or spinal joints themselves. Your chiropractor will be able to diagnose which of these is causing the pain and therefore give you treatment that is appropriate for your problem.
Headaches can be debilitating especially if they are frequent. Most headaches (cervicogenic) are caused by restriction of the joints of the neck and referred pain from the muscles of the neck and/or shoulders and can range from a mild tension headache to severe migraines. They can often be alleviated effectively with the correct diagnosis and treatment.
The core contribution of the sports chiropractor is the ability to find the key joint and/or soft-tissue dysfunction in the athlete and to treat that with skilled manual and other conservative care. Managing and preventing injuries leads to improved performance. At Back 2 Health we look after athletes of all standards.
"Massive thank you to Chris. My goal to walk to the top of snaefell, and I did it this morning. I walked up around 7 years ago but full of painkillers to do it back then. Dr's said for 15/20 years that i was a "mystery", but after 8/9 sessions with Chris I really did/do feel on top of the world with NO medication."
"Big thanks to Chris at Back2Health Chiropractic and Sports Injuries Clinic for fitting me in today. So much more movement now 👍🏻"
I’d been struggling with back pain from a rugby injury for a number of months when the sports physiotherapist I was visiting recommended I book an appointment with Chris to see if my issues were more than just muscular.
I was a little nervous of seeing a chiropractor initially as I had a preconceived idea based on TV & Films, after 5 minutes chatting with Chris I realised how wrong I had been. Chris is obviously very knowledgeable and is able to explain everything he is doing in a way that is easily understandable, I felt relaxed at all times and was fully aware of what Chris believed the issue with my back was, what he was going to do in order to correct the issue and the timescales involved. After the initial session I felt relief straight away and things improved over time, I was impressed that the frequency of the appointments changed with how my back responded to the treatment so at no point did I feel I was going for the sake of it.
6 months on from the initial consultation I am able to play rugby again for the first time in 12 months and no longer take painkillers at my desk to get through a day’s work, I visit Chris every 2 or 3 months now just to keep things moving. I have recommended him to a number of my teammates already and would have no hesitation with recommending him to anyone else.
After being prescribed repeated medication for suspected sinus problems but without success, it was suggested by my GP that tension headaches may be the cause of the daily reoccurring episodes of pressure in my head along with neck stiffness and dizziness.
Unhappy with taking regular doses of Ibuprofen, a friend suggested that I give Chiropractic treatment a try and recommended Dr Chris Walker at Back2Health.
I had a Consultation with Chris who upon examining me diagnosed trouble areas in my spine and neck so set about a treatment plan. This together with some good advice on alterations to my daily routine and some easy self help exercises to do in my own time has taken my condition from daily debilitating headaches to them now being few and far between.
The treatment received from Chris has been both painless and very effective. Maybe just as importantly, I no longer need any painkillers. My daily quality of life has improved no end and I would strongly encourage anybody suffering from a problem such as mine to seek the advice of a registered and more importantly qualified chiropractor and can highly recommend Dr Chris Walker at Back2Health.
Thanks for your help with my back. I had a very sore and weak lower back for weeks due to a gym injury. You managed to sort it within a few weeks and now it's back to good. I'm able to go back to the gym and it causes me no issues at work. Cheers again.
I have suffered headaches all my life and this developed into a headache nearly every day, which affected my life greatly. I had spent thousands trying to eradicate these before visiting Back2Health. Following several initial intensive sessions with Chris, the headaches subsided and after a couple of months, they had gone almost completely. On the occasions they do occur, Chris has given me exercises I can perform to eliminate them. I now visit Back2Health every 3 months for a check-up and can now live without the headaches blighting my life.
"I would like to highly recommend Dr Chris Walker"
"After suffering for 12-18 months with pain in my hand, arm, shoulder and upper back, and being pushed around doctors and hospitals for MRI scans and nerve conduction tests, I was starting to think I'd never get any help. In one consultation with Chris, he pinpointed my trouble, set out a good and clear plan of attack for helping me, and showing me what I can do to help myself. Within a month of seeing Chris, my pain levels had halved and within a few months, I'm very nearly pain-free.
For anyone who is suffering pain, I cannot recommend Chris highly enough for what his services have done for me."
"Another top session done today with Back2Health Chiropractic and Sports Injuries Clinic the best on the island by far in my opinion. Feeling great after that and ready for my 24hr circuit thanks mate Chris Walker."
I went to Chris after suffering back pain and headaches for several years. After visiting Chris I am feeling much better, I am more mobile, pain free and much more relaxed knowing that if I have problems I can quickly get an appointment. I would recommend him to anyone who has had or is having back problems - very approachable and friendly.
Both my daughter and I use Dr Chris Walker of Back2Health Chiropractic when we are experiencing pain mainly in the lower and upper back, neck and shoulder. The standard of service is most definitely outstanding, always providing detailed explanations relating to specific problems and constantly showing effective results. We have always found that Dr Chris Walker has remained respectful and gentlemanly whilst receiving any treatment. He is also very flexible when making appointments and ensures you only receive a necessary amount of treatment required. We are both happy to highly recommend Dr Chris Walker to any persons that may ask and we are confident that they will receive the same experience and satisfaction in a professional service that we have. We wish him continued success in his clinic.
After racing motorcycles for the past 9 years I have put my body through lots of stress and trauma with high-speed impacts and crashes. In January 2013 my back finally gave up and I was left barely able to walk. I heard of Dr Chris Walker at Back2Health through word of mouth and was aware of his success rate in getting people back on there feet. Dr Chris Walker advised me that with the trauma my back had suffered there was no quick fix and I had to be patient. Just 2 months later and I'm almost at 100% and back competing in the Isle of Man road racing championships. Without the help of Dr Chris Walker I wouldn't have been able to carry on racing this year. I would recommend Back2Health to anyone who is suffering with back and neck problems.
I was suffering from back pain for almost 2 years, broken nights sleep and 'just getting on with life' until I decided enough was enough and went to see Chris at back2health, 2 months on and a structured treatment plan and I'm sleeping through the night, going cycling again and playing sports I haven't played for years! Which in turn has helped me lose weight and increase my energy levels! Marvellous!
After suffering pain and limited mobility for a year following an accident, I was facing major surgery to my shoulder. Three weeks treatment with Dr Chris saw the pain reduce significantly. Several more treatments saw my arm and shoulder mobility increase. Now I wonder why it took me so long before I contacted him. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone, to Dr Chris.
I first went to back2health with lower back pain, during the initial consultation I mentioned I also suffered with severe headaches at times for which I had been instructed to take several drugs.
Chris examined then treated me for both complaints. My back is now better than it has been in years and to date I have not suffered with a severe headache.
I visit back2health every eight weeks or so and have done for sometime. I have always found Chris to be polite, pleasant and professional in everyway. I have recommend back2health to several people and would have no hesitation in doing so in the future.
In June 2012 I had to see my doctor as I had severe pain in my left hip and buttock. Following several blood tests and x-rays I was diagnosed with Piriformis Syndrome. A friend recommended me to see Chris at Back2Health so I made an appointment. On my first visit I was given a very thorough examination, and was also told that I had a problem with my lower back. I then had treatment twice a week for one month, after which I was feeling much more mobile. After a further visit I was given specific back exercises to do every other day, which I still do religiously.
I saw Chris again in September and told him I had not had any further pain and was feeling really well. I cannot believe the effect the treatment has had on me, and would definitely recommend the service he offers, his rates are very reasonable, and as I believe you cant put a price on your health, he was worth every penny. Thanks again Chris on a job well done.
