Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine.
Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly.
Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, soft tissue therapy, sports massage, postural rehabilitation and exercise as well as advice about diet and lifestyle. Although chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain, which they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range of other, related conditions.

Felisa Pham B.A. (psych), D.C. – Doctor of Chiropractic
Felisa Pham started out her career in the U.S.A. as a counselor after graduating with a B.A. in Psychology. She went on to earn her Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree with honours from Life Chiropractic College-West, California in 1999.
She moved from California to London two years later, initially to work as an associate Chiropractor, and went on to establish her own clinic in London where she practiced for over 12 years before moving to Clanfield.
Felisa Pham believes that along with chiropractic treatments, it is important to raise patients’ awareness about broader health issues; injury prevention, rehabilitation, exercise, nutrition, posture and ergonomics, to empower them to take an active role in their continuing health.
She has a keen interest in her ongoing professional development and has done post-graduate courses on specialist techniques within the chiropractic field, how chiropractic can benefit women during pregnancy and pediatrics care. She is also interested in posture and spinal rehabilitation and is a Chiropractic Biophysics certified practitioner.
