History of the clinics

Spine Plus Chigwell was established in 2000 by osteopath Robert Shanks. Originally under the name Chigwell Osteopathy Practice, this was later changed to Chigwell Osteopathy & Physiotherapy Practice when Robert’s mother, a chartered Physiotherapist with over 40 years experience, joined the business, before the most recent branding change to “Spine Plus” to co-inside with the expansion of the company to include clinics in Woodford Green and Harley Street and the establishment of IDD Therapy Services in 2011. At that time Spine Plus was the 3rd clinic to offer IDD Therapy in the UK, today there are over 60 clinics throughout the UK (including spinal surgeons) offering IDD Therapy which is one of the fastest growing treatments for slipped discs and other degenerative disc problems. The Spine Plus group of clinics have a strong reputation for offering the latest therapies and services. More recently the clinics have introduced affordable Shock Wave Therapy (for tendon problems such as Calcific Tendinopathy and rotator cuff tendonitis in the shoulder, Tennis Elbow, knee problems and Achilles and Plantar Fasciitis) alongside the traditional hands on Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Medical Acupuncture and Massage offered by a carefully selected and vetted therapy team of therapists. The Woodford and Chigwell clinics continue to be run by Robert and his family who have lived in the area for more than 40 years. The clinics have a strong ethos for applying family values and serve a very loyal local client base.
