Active Care Chiropractic, York – helping the people of Yorkshire and beyond to get moving and keep active since 2008.
At Active Care Chiropractic we treat patients suffering from a wide range of complaints – not just back problems – but all over the body.
Sometimes even people we’ve been treating for many years don’t realise the variety of problems we can help with.
If you’re not sure whether chiropractic is right for you please call us and ask.
Active Care Chiropractic was established in York in 2008 and moved to it’s present location, 238 Melrosegate in 2015.
The clinic at 238 Melrosegate is welcoming and comfortable and will help you to feel more relaxed about your appointment.
