Very thorough and very informative, Highly professional yet relaxed atmosphere. Tea and coffee offered on several occasions, just made the whole experience very pleasant. Mr Butterworth is very knowledgeable and passionate about his craft. Highly recommended A+++
I came to see Mark Butterworth agonising with back pain, including lower back and the neck. Both, the entire spine and muscles around the neck were stiff and painful, making me unable to sit, stand and sleep more than a couple of hours over night. Mark assessed me very thoroughly and professionally, prescribing at the end a treatment over several weeks. After two weeks, my situation significantly improved: the muscles becoming more relaxed, spine more flexible and my entire body more able to move freely, without pain. The progress is obvious.
Mark is not only very knowledgeable and professional, but also methodic in what is doing, caring about any detail and providing advice when requested.
I would recommend Mark and his colleagues without any hesitation as one of the best clinics of this type I have ever encountered.
I retired from work in 2012 and had terrible back problems from not sitting correctly at computers. Mark gradually manipulated the muscles back into something like normality and I now go once a month to keep the muscles freed up and have a completely pain free existence. I have also had a long standing knee problem going back to a leg break in 1987. Mark actually managed to manipulate the joint back into line and since then i have had no problems with either my knee or hip, thus avoiding potential surgery.
I cannot speak highly enough of the entire practice, all the staff are charming and couldn't be more helpful. Worth every penny for a pain free life.
Many thanks to all the staff.
After months of being in pain, I went to see Mark at the Headingley Chiropractic Clinic. I can honestly say it has made a huge difference. I may have a while before I'm 100% but I definitely feel like I have some normality back in my life. Oh and Stephanie is a godsend with her cups of coffee :)
Second review from me, but Google asked. In my particular case, I think 10 visits to a physiotherapist is equivalent to just one here with Sarah. Again, a brilliant session - feel and move so much better, thank you.
Professional place, clean, friendly and reasonably priced.
I’ve had costochondritis for over 4 years now & pain in the sciatic nerve.
Mark does a really good job. I was amazed at how he got rid of that nasty sciatic pain with his skilful acupuncture session.
As for my complicated costochondritis issue. The flare has died down significantly after a couple of sessions. I’m now able to have many good night’s of sleep. Along with his excellent work and the NHS checkups combined, I hope to treat it once and for all.
Verdict: Would recommend.
I had excruciating pain in my back and i turned to Headingley Chiropractic Clinic which helped me 6 years ago as well. Chiropractor Mark took good care of me which included effective treatment and exercises to prevent the problems in the future and to strengthen my core muscles. I would recommend this clinic to anybody as they are very professional and nice to work with. 5 stars without a doubt
I’ve had sciatica problems before that caused severe back spasms and inability to walk. I’ve seen other chiropractors for this and got worse and therefore scared to ever go again.
When I was about 3 months pregnant this happened and I literally couldn’t move! The pain was enormous and because I still had 6 months to go, I thought I really needed to find help!
I went on Google and found this clinic that had good reviews for normal Chiro treatments but had someone specialised in pregnancy care.
I rang the clinic to make sure she had other experience as I was so traumatised! The receptionist was a dear and said not to worry, she had plenty of pregnant ladies coming in and all very happy with the treatment!
It was the best decision I’ve ever made! Dr Laetitia was very understanding, supportive and a great professional overall.
I couldn’t walk and after the first session I was able to walk home, about an hour walk, I couldn’t believe it!
I’m very grateful for all her care, I recommend her treatment all the time!
Even my midwife was surprised and started recommending it to other ladies!
Very happy! I’m looking forward to keep up with the treatments in due course!
In just a few sessions Mark fixed me and I am back to a free from pain and happy life again. I couldn’t ask for more, I didn’t expect it to work so well and so fast, after months of severe pain. I would definitely recommend it to everybody and will always be grateful to my friend Marianthi who suggested it to me in the first place. Mark is extremely professional and luckily really able to help, where anyone else and everything else (gp, drugs ...) failed. Highly recommended +++
I have been struggling for many years with back pain and hip pain. Tried may different approaches with zero results. My GP told me to try a Chiropractor and i remember a few years back it had helped me. So i found Headingley Chiropractic Clinic and have been going now for a couple of months, what a change!! I have almost no pain, i walk so much better and managed to get myself back to the gym. I have more energy and am so happy that my sciatic pain is almost gone! Mark has been absolutely wonderful for the very beginning and i find going there very relaxing and always walk out feeling great. The team at the reception is also very welcoming and they remember you by name. I would definitely recommend this practise! They are also very accommodating with the times so that the sessions don t take time away from work.
I always go there when I'm miserable and in pain and I leave not only with less pain, but also more relaxed. Letitia always explains everything I need to do at home to get better, and it's always the best advice.
Having previously had chiropractic treatment a long time ago, I know how important it is to find a good chiropractor who you are going to trust with your body and schedule regular treatment with.
The treatment costs are reasonable and considering this practice is one of the best in Leeds and the work they do, the expertise and knowledge they have I believe its worth every penny.
I have been at the gym for over a year, I have moved house and really pushed my body to the limit and this has caused me tremendous pain in my hip flexor and lower back along with stress!
I made my initial appointment and got to the practice. The reception team were very friendly and professional. Mark has been amazing so far and I continue regular ongoing treatment.
I can not recommend this practice enough, I've told all my friends and family about it.
On behalf of my mum:
Having read some of the great google reviews, I decided to try this place out. I came for a free assessment and then decided to go ahead with treatment so I have been seeing Mark for a few weeks now after suffering for 23 years of back pain and sciatica after pregnancy with twins. Can not recommend Mark and the staff enough. If I could give more than 5 stars I would.
After 6 years of back problems and pains I thought it would be impossible to relieve the pain, but within my first appointment I had already felt a difference. I'm 7 appointments in now and my back has improved so much. I'm already on the stage of carrying out exercises recommended by Mark. I couldn't be happier with the treatment! Mark is especially helpful and makes sure you understand fully what he is doing and why. I can't wait to see the improvements that I'm sure will continue to present!
I have suffered with back, neck and shoulder pain for many years. Eventually the pain got too much so I called in to the clinic for an assessment.
I was referred to Sarah who went on to highlight all the issues and recommended a course of treatment.
The treatment I have received from Sarah and all the staff since my first visit has been fantastic.
The results have been amazing and the freedom of movement I now enjoy is unbelievable.
Thank you to Sarah and all the team.
Hi just been in to see Laetitia was very professional helpful and really open about everything, booked another few appointments with her ,,very clean and professional clinic and the reception lady was very helpfull aswell ,,
Overall great experience
The best decision I ever made!! Headingley Chiropractic Clinic genuinely changed my life.
I experienced over 12 months of suffering from chronic shoulder and neck pain that caused nerve and shooting pains down my arm, it made me unable to work or generally get out of bed, at its worst I was collapsing from the pain. I was passed from pillar to post of consultants, specialists and physios, none of which took any ownership or desire to get to the bottom of it, openly telling me throughout my time that they had no idea what my pain was and were just going to operate and find out. I'd had so many tests that my GP was starting to think I was undiagnosable he even tried to put me off of coming to a chiropractor. I'd said from the outset that my jaw, neck and shoulder were all linked and affecting each other but nobody paid any attention until I came to Mark.
He was the first medical professional I saw in over a year of appointments and tests that genuinely listened and it was a breath of fresh air. I'd spent well over a year in chronic pain and within 6 weeks of seeing Mark I'd had a total turn around, 3 months in and I am no longer having to take the 15 painkillers a day, I am getting back to work, fitness and generally being able to live my life again.
If I had listened to my GPs advice, I'd still be off work, in bed most days in agony and would just be having to live life with my pain. At 25 years old, I didn't find that acceptable and thanks to Mark things are massively on the up. I can't express enough how much this has helped me, I felt so helpless before and if you're having a similar experience with pain that isn't being helped/diagnosed because its cause is not obvious, then don't lose hope because there are other ways of being fixed outside of your GP / NHS pathway.
The team at the practice are so lovely too! I can't thank them enough and will continue to see Mark to maintain my progress.
At Headingley Chiropractic Clinic, our fully qualified chiropractors based in Leeds are passionate about providing you with the best possible chiropractic care. We are here to help you regain the fitness you once had, to recover your mobility and of course, our aim is always to keep you living a pain-free life.
Our Chiropractic Philosophy
Our philosophy is one of consistent innovation; serving you with the latest, most effective chiropractic care. As such, our chiropractors have all studied Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) which is one of the most gentle, comprehensive, holistic, post-graduate chiropractic techniques used in the UK. More information on this technique can be found on sotoeurope.org.
It is a well-known fact that the vast majority of back and neck pain reoccurs, therefore, we believe that whilst it is essential to get you out of pain – giving you an exercise regime to build a fitter, stronger you to prevent the pain coming back is also very important.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation Technique (DNS) is a cutting-edge rehabilitation exercise regime that our chiropractors have extensive training in. Along with lifestyle advice and chiropractic manipulation, we use DNS as a tool to help us get to the very root of the problem; providing a cure rather than just a patch. We want to give a long-lasting solution that means you don’t have to rely on us, but can be safe in the knowledge we are here to support you.
We believe the more holistically your health problem is treated, the better the chances of recovery. We can do this by working with a network of practitioners from different medical disciplines, ranging from podiatrists, holistic dentists, masseurs, all the way to homeopaths. If we can’t help you ourselves, we will help find someone who can.
Mark Butterworth’s passion to help you get better has led him to spend hundreds of hours in postgraduate education. With over 20 years’ experience, he has attained the status of Advanced SOT Practitioner and Craniopath (the highest exam that can be taken in SOT). He’s also the current Chairman of the Yorkshire Faculty of the Royal College of Chiropractors and has achieved certification in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS). DNS is taught by the Prague School of Rehabilitation who look after sporting stars such as Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and the National Theatre Ballet Prague.
Mark’s training in various techniques enables him to tailor the treatment to best suit your needs and take you from pain relief to full strength (so there is every chance the pains will not come back).
