James’s Story

Dr James Harrison is principal Chiropractor and owner at Connective Chiropractic.

After he was diagnosed with Viral Encephalitis, James changed his career path from lawyer to Chiropractor after seeing the benefits of Chiropractic treatment as part of his care. He states that his experience became much more than just a method of treating pain, but a way of gradually fitting back the pieces of the puzzle after not having been as healthy as he could have been.

When he is not serving people as Principal Chiropractor at Connective Chiropractic, James is an expert witness for the Chiropractic profession and teaches Masters of Chiropractic students and final year interns at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic (BPP University, now owned by the College of Health Ltd and accredited by the University of Ulster). He also currently sits on the council of RAMP (The Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners)

I have been seeing James for monthly chiropractic treatment for years. He is always welcoming and kind. James is very thorough with my care and makes adjustments where they are needed. When I leave, I feel another foot taller and ready to conquer the world

Today I had a treatment with Pam. It was very light as I have cancer. Pam has a wonderful bedside manner and is brilliant with either a light or heavier massage. She is professional at all times. All the staff I have come across at Connective Chiropractic have been very friendly and helpful.

I see James for Chiropractic but also visit Pam for the most amazing massages. This combination really helps with my back/shoulder issues, as well as it being some great self care. I highly recommend James and Pam.

Excellent and friendly staff. Flexible appointments and first class treatments. Pam is very skilled at addressing any physical issues presented and applying varied massage techniques to correct them. Good advice is given on self-care between appointments. The subscription plans make things easy to budget for, while taking money away from the appointment - allowing for a more relaxing experience. The service was so good I referred my wife, who is now also a subscriber.

James and his team are amazing! From my first session with James I always felt informed and supported. I follow up my chiropractic sessions with massage therapy provided by Pamela and through their combined efforts I’m not only back to my old self but feeling stronger and in better shape than I ever have been.

A massage session with Pam is the perfect balance between targeted relief for tight muscles and the overall relaxation experience of a spa. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!

I cannot put into words how fantastic the team at Connective Chiropractic are. James doesn’t just focus on the obvious issues, he really knows how to dig down into all factors that may have an impact on aches and pains. I have chronic pain and he has tailored my care plan to best help with me (a complex character!). My husband and I have appointments together and we really enjoy going to see James, even if some of the adjustments are a bit uncomfortable! That said we both always feel so much better after we have been. You won’t regret booking an appointment.
