  • Sciatica- If you've got sciatica, this is THE place to go. Very knowledgeable staff, they were able to explain my MRI scan to me in detail (something I've never had with any physios or osteopaths in the past) and the treatment was excellent, particularly the IDD Disc Therapy machine. ClaireB 06/28/2017
  • Thank you Spine Plus I have been attending Spine Plus for several year with various ailments and have always found the practitioners professional, skillful and caring. The premises are always spotless and the treatment rooms are bright and airy. I would anyone of any age to visit this clinic. AnnM 06/28/2017
  • Great guys, helped me a lot! Alex 12/10/2016
  • Excellent treatment I have been coming to this clinic for years. I see Ben whose knowledge and expertise and care is beyond any other physio I have seen. Without him I would not be mobile. I highly recommend Ben and this clinic. MelindaV 08/16/2016
  • Awesome Treatment, Felt So Much Better From The First Visit!! Such a great clinic, great service and made me feel like new, i cant recommend them enough! Mario Garcia 09/28/2016
  • Life Changing I went to Spine Plus after suffering with daily back pain for many years. I was very nervous about going to a clinic for treatment. However the experienced proved to be life changing for me. After the first treatment which involved osteopathy and acupuncture I felt around 80% improvement on leaving the clinic, I could bend forward and backward without pain for the first time in years. I was recommended to have one more treatment which I did and this got rid of all my pain. One year later, apart from one episode of spasm which occurred after I lifting something incorrectly in the garden, I still have not had any of the pain I was in. Anyone with back pain should make Spine Plus their first port of call. HarryR-14 07/30/2016
  • Great treatment, friendly and made us feel relaxed and at ease- Thank you Spine Plus Visited Spine Plus on 20th July for help and advise for our teenage son who has been diagnosed with Pars Defect in his Spine. Was seen by Rob who was very friendly and easy to talk to, went through our son's MRI Scan with us and explained the defect in a way that we could understand and also showed us visually using a model of the spine which really helped. Gave our son a thorough check of his spine, hips and leg movements and from there showed him exercises specific to his problem and went through each one to ensure that he understood them fully. Did not feel at all rushed by Rob, who answered all the questions we had and left feeling as though we have a much better understanding of the spine defect, implications for our son and also a lot more positive about the future. Would definitely recommend Spine Plus. TraceyH-52 07/23/2016

Who We Are?

SpinePlus Chigwell is headed up by SpinePlus Partner Robert Shanks & was established in 2001. Robert graduated as an Osteopath in 2000 and subsequently furthered his education with several postgraduate courses, notably in medical acupuncture, electrotherapy and clinical Pilates (the latter with the renowned Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute).

As well as treating sports injuries and tension headaches, Robert’s other main area of special interest is the management of patients with chronic low back pain and neck pain associated with disc problems.

Correct Diagnosis of your injury is the key to providing the best treatment. All of our team are highly skilled, experienced and qualified to identify  your particular problem and your treatment plan is then decided upon.

Robert Shanks Clinical Director Spineplus Chigwell-Osteopath
Here’s an example, you can use some of it but it must be different for each one. Robert Qualified as an Osteopath in 2000, however he was strongly influenced by his mother, Ann, a Chartered Physiotherapist and soon after graduation established Spine Plus’ first clinic in Chigwell with the vision of offering expert treatment for a range of musculoskeletal disroders that incorporated the key benefits of both professions. Early into his career Robert realised traditional physiotherapy and osteopathy did relaitvely little for pateints with sciatica and related disorders due to bulging or degenerative discs in the Spine. After initial successes with offering mechanical traction at the Chigwell clinic, Robert wanted to do even more for these patients and became one of the first clinicians in the UK to offer an advanced form of compterised traction called IDD Therapy (IDD Therapy is currently one of the most successful and fasted growing forms of therapy for pateints with degenerative discs in the spine and is currently available at three of our clinics). With additional qualifications in medical acupuncture, electrotherapy and clinical Pilates (the latter with the renowned Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute), Robert is part of the driving force behind our multidisciplinary approach.
