At A-Z Family Chiropractic we have highly experienced chiropractors that are passionate about getting people well and keeping them that way. Serving Blackburn and the surrounding areas. Chiropractic creates optimum spinal health optimising the function of the nervous system.
A chiropractor uses their hands to locate joints that are not moving as they should be and use a quick specific impulse into those joints which is called a chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractors are highly skilled and undergo 5 years of intensive training at university. They are experts in the anatomy and physiology of the body. Not only that Chiropractors have extensive training on neurology, radiology, diagnostics, biomechanics and rehabilitation. Chiropractors are known for specialising in the spine but also they see a variety of conditions such as headaches, knee pain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow and many more. Why not give us a call and see if we can help you.
Dr Zoe Bennett. Mchiro
I am originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, I first became interested in chiropractic as a teenager as I was taken to see one by my mum for severe headaches. I was amazed that within a few sessions my headaches significantly improved and then completely went. I then went on to work in a chiropractic clinic as a receptionist. When I saw how chiropractic could change people’s lives I knew that was the job I wanted to do. I then went off to the Welsh institute of chiropractic to study for 5 years to become a chiropractor. I have then gone on to specialise in chiropractic for pregnancy and chiropractic for children and babies. I absolutely love being a chiropractor and seeing people get better and live their lives to the full.

I’ve been back here in the UK for nearly 2 and a half years after living in Cape Town, South Africa since 1968 with my mum and dad and brother. I’m the proud granny of a beautiful little curly haired girl called Olivia who is just over a year old and too far away in Cape Town with her parents Ross (my son) and wife Michelle.
I now live here in Blackburn with my mum and feel more at home here every day. Having worked as a Chiropractic Assistant for 14 years in Cape Town I was fortunate to find the same position here at the A-Z Family Chiropractic Clinic where I have been working for nearly 2 years. When not at work I enjoy
going to Zumba class twice a week and also like going for country walks and listening to my fave blues artists. The best part of my job at the clinic is to witness our patients regain their optimum spinal health before my eyes. Miracles can and do happen.
After having a break from work and spending 2 years at college to study floristry and horticulture, I was ready to return to admin work. Working at A-Z sounded perfect to me as my career background was reception/admin work and I had also worked as a Holistic Therapist. I was also told I could bring my dog, Poppy, to work too!!
I love working here. My colleagues are lovely and it feels like being part of a family. My motto in life is “be happy”. If you feel good on the inside, it shines through to the outside! My interests are walking Poppy, growing flowers from seed and being with friends.
