Meet the Team
Chiropractic Dr Rebecca Nicholas – Clinic Director
DC M. Chiro MCC
Undertakes work for most major health insurance providers including Aviva, AXA/PPP and Simply Health
Doctor of Chiropractic, Rebecca Nicholas has been raised with a chiropractic ‘natural first’
philosophy and has been able to avoid GP’s surgeries and hospitals.
Following in the family tradition, Rebecca graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth with a Masters degree in Chiropractic before moving back to her home town and first love, Brighton. She has undertaken a post-graduate certificate in paediatrics and takes a special interest in chiropractic paediatrics and pregnancy. She has since completed qualifications to use dry needling and Activator techniques.
Rebecca believes that prevention is always better than the cure. Young people especially should not dismiss their problems but get them looked at, preventing many health issues later in life.
Rebecca acquired the Clinic during 2007 and continues to treat Cornelia Nicholas’ patients, having since retired.
Chiropractic Dr Mike Ford
Mike completed his training at McTimoney College of Chiropractic; here he learnt a specific style of chiropractic that can be very gentle and non-invasive, ideal for adjusting both the elderly and the very young. However, before becoming a Chiropractor Mike was a sports rehabilitation therapist and specialised in helping athletes of all capacities recover from injuries and improve their sporting performance.
He believes strongly that as well as physical treatment, it is important to promote health in all areas including exercise, diet and lifestyle. Encouraging an upwards spiral in health often requires change in multiple areas and Mike is passionate about helping clients achieve that.
Mike enjoys climbing, rugby, water sports and calisthenics training. He has a passion for nature and loves to garden in his spare time.
“Over the months after my graduation I visited many different chiropractic practises, looking for a place with my values and culture. I knew that I wanted to find people that were not only caring, inclusive and passionate about their clients, but also delivered outstanding service to every single person that walked in.
After declining several positions elsewhere I happened upon Back 2 Balance. It was further away than most, but after visiting once, I knew immediately I would not want to be anywhere else.”
