Ruth Elphick DC. BSc (hons). CCEP
Ruth graduated with honours from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2004. Since this time she has been working in private clinics throughout the area of Southwest London and Surrey and has built up an excellent reputation within the communities of these clinics, thanks to her success in the treatment of a wide spectrum of patients from children and pregnant women, to athletes and the elderly.
During her professional career she has developed her interests and trained further in dry needling, rehabilitation, pregnancy and paediatrics, IASTM (instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation), kinesiology taping and is a qualified CCEP (Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner). Her history in professional dance gives her a unique foundation to help understand the stresses put through the body by such strenuous physical activities. In 2006 Ruth established her clinic in Weybridge and in 2015 has expanded with a clinic in St Margaret’s where she has built a team of like-minded professionals providing the best quality care in musculoskeletal health for the community.
The techniques that Ruth uses will vary depending upon the requirements of the individual. The techniques may include diversified adjusting, mobilisation, extremity specific adjustments, craniosacral therapy, trigger point therapy, scar tissue treatment, dry needling, exercise and rehabilitation, active and passive releases, fascial unwinding, IASTM and kinesiology taping.
The profession is regulated by the General Chiropractic Council. Ruth is registered with the GCC and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association, the Council on Extremity Adjusting and the International Chiropractic Association Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics.
Ruth is recognised by BUPA, AXA PPP, HSA and most other UK and international insurers.
