The Pain Relief Centre was opened in 2004 by Chris Pickard, when he practiced as a chiropractor.  Since then Chris has left the chiropractic profession in name, as he uses a wide range of techniques and therapies.

Chris has been involved in health care for over 20 years, mainly working with people in pain, and has a passion for the prevention of sickness and disease. His clients have included the rich and famous and elite athletes, and he has treated all ages from 2 days old to 97 years old.

Chris also has a great interest in helping children with ADHD and related neuro-behavioral problems, playing a key part in bringing a natural ADHD support program to the UK in 2014.

The focus at the Pain Relief Centre is to not just ‘fix’ the problem, but to provide the knowledge and teach the skills and habits to improve health beyond what is expected – at any age. Currently under care are martial arts World, European and British Champions – people who value and need exceptional health.

Chris has two boys (Nick and Eric), going to local schools, a Canadian wife (Kerry), and his main hobbies include bee keeping and juggling.

We believe no one should be in pain, contact us so we can sort out your pain relief and find you a workable solution.
