Dr Will Gilder BSc MChiro
Doctor of Chiropractic
Will’s first experience of chiropractic was as a teenager after suffering a lower back injury playing Rugby. After trying physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture and massage all with limited or no success. He was finally referred to a chiropractor and never looked back.
After completing a degree in sport and exercise science, and taking particular interest in the modules concerning injury, rehabilitation, health and nutrition Will knew a career in healthcare was for him and since those earlier experiences Chiropractic was the only choice!
Will graduated from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Abingdon, Oxfordshire with an integrated masters in chiropractic and began his career working in Leicestershire, treating a huge variety of patients from week old babies to people well into their 90’s, from sedentary individuals to elite athletes.
Will likes to utilise a number of different techniques to get the best results for his patients. Whether that’s Diversified Chiropractic Adjustments, the increasingly popular McTimoney Chiropractic Technique, soft tissue work, acupuncture or advice on exercise, nutrition and lifestyle.
Will is particularly interested in the effect of chiropractic on Sporting performance and practices what he preaches with regular adjustments and training at the gym to aid competing in various clay shooting disciplines and competitions across the country.
