About Coastal Chiropractic Clinic
Here at the Coastal Chiropractic Clinic we aim to;
- My aim as a Chiropractor is to help as many people as possible
- Increase the quality of life for people
- Ease people’s aches, pains and stiffness
- Be proactive rather than reactive by assessing how the joints and muscles are functioning
The intention of the clinic is to provide Chiropractic care to all the family, from the young to teenagers, to adults and to the older ladies and gentlemen.
Many people only go and see Chiropractors when they are in pain and discomfort. People will “put up” with aches and stiffness. This is the wrong thing to do! When people do this it can start to affect small, day to day activities which then has a negative effect on a person’s life.
Please do not wait for symptoms to develop causing more pains and problems. Be “Proactive” and not “Reactive”; we recommend you do not just put up with it!
A main aim of the Coastal Chiropractic Clinic is for everyone to be assessed and examined regularly, to help try and reduce people’s aches and stiffness’s developing into severe pains.
We aim to keep people feeling good.
The Initial Consultation:
During the Initial Consultation a case history will be taken; then with the patient’s consent a full thorough examination will take place and a full gown will always be offered. We will measure blood pressure, check how the nervous system is working, assess muscle tension and check how joints in the body are functioning. This will be followed by a report of findings explaining what has been found and if Chiropractic can help. If we can help, a plan of management specific to the patient will be developed. If we cannot help the patient will be referred to the appropriate health care practitioner.
Chiropractors take an integrated and holistic approach to the health needs of their patients, considering physical, psychological and social factors. They provide care and support by reducing pain and disability and by restoring normal function to people with musculoskeletal disorders.
If you are suffering, or are “putting up” with aches, pains or stiffness the Coastal Chiropractic Clinic would like to try and help, both in the short term and long term.

Adam Carlisle BSc. Hons. (Chiro.)
Founder and owner of Coastal Chiropractic Clinic 2009.
Born: January 1984.

I first visited a Chiropractor when I was 15 years old. Being a competitive swimmer when I was younger, I suffered from a number of minor shoulder, back and other injuries.
These problems were originally put down to as ‘growing pains’ by other health professions and I was told that nothing could be done. I was advised to give up a sport I loved due to the problems I suffered from. Chiropractic treatment helped with those problems and enabled me to continue competing to this day.
Due to the results I had, and a close family member had, from Chiropractic care I decided to train to become a Chiropractor myself so I could help people in the same way I had been helped.
After studying hard for four years at the University of Glamorgan in South Wales and graduating in 2006 I decided to move back to my home area and use my skills I learnt and try to help local people.
From my own personal experience of how Chiropractic helped me with my sporting ambitions, I have a special interest in helping sports people achieve their aims. Chiropractic can help with the competitors conditioning and play a big role in helping them reach their goals.
Regular members of the public get the same problems as athletes, although the athlete requires their body to perform at a superior level therefore small problems can inhibit performance.
I have been able to help people of all ages, with lots of differing problems including;
- A 6 week year old baby.
- A teenager who was suffering with aches and pains during and after school, who was told it was just ‘growing pains’.
- Adults who have discomfort due to working a desk job and other occupational hazards.
- Sports people who want to perform with less tension and discomfort.
- Older ladies and gentlemen, who have ‘put up’ with stiffness and nagging aches for years and had been told there was nothing that could be done to ease them.
I get a great sense of achievement and job satisfaction knowing that I have helped improve the quality of life for someone due to care I have given them. It is a lovely feeling!
From my experience people that have regular Chiropractic care enjoy a better quality of life, with less frequent and severe aches and pains. Obviously life will always throw up problems but I would not have trained to be a Chiropractor and would not be currently be one, if Chiropractic did not have positive effects on people’s lives.
My aim as a Chiropractor is to help as many people as possible.
My long term goal is to educate people about Chiropractic and for them to look after their health and spine with regular checkups, instead of just using Chiropractic when they have pains and problems.
Regular checkups aim to maintain the function. If the body is functioning well, it decreases the chance of problems developing. Chiropractors call this ‘maintenance care’. The aim is to reduce stresses and tension before they become problematic and works out cheaper in the long run.
Hopefully I will inspire others to follow in my path of Chiropractic and one day maybe become a Chiropractor themselves!

Ms Joanne Broadbent – Complementary Therapist
I grew up in Elland, West Yorkshire and moved to St.Annes in 1998, 16 years ago. I have two children aged 16 and 13.
I have long had an interest in complementary and alternative therapies and treatments so when my daughter started school in 2004 I decided to develop this interest by enrolling on a course to learn more about Holistic Therapies.
I became qualified in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage in 2005 and I am also a Reiki practitioner.
The main benefit of these therapies is relaxation for relief from anxiety and stress.
I enjoy this job because I believe that relaxation therapy can be of enormous benefit to health and well-being and have found this to be the case from my own personal experience of receiving Holistic Therapy treatments.
Joanne is no longer regularly practising at the CCC however appointments may be available. Please call if you are requesting her.
