I have had chiro treatment at various places over 20 years and I am admittedly quite fussy. I used to go to another chiropractic centre in Putney for almost a year but didn’t improve much and despite going in 3x a week they said I needed to come in more often! I started at Fulham Backcare in Feb 2019 and haven’t looked back. From the very first appointment with Rob I felt an immediate improvement. In particular I have responded well to dry needling and taping which the other putney clinic didn’t do. At that clinic, it always felt like a rush to get you out the door. Fulham Backcare has been a lifesaver for me. Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...

I don’t believe that the bad reviews are real. I have been a patient for few months and none of the things described has happened to me. The Chiropractor there are professional and caring. I introduced many friends to them and everyone is extremely happy. The front desk staff is friendly and well mannered and I never feared for my privacy. If you are looking for a good chiropractor this is the place.

First of all they took anly two xrays, even that i have paid 80 pounds, so the treatment went all wrong as they could know which kind of scoliosis i have. Buy they didn’t want to take more xrays of rest of the back. I went through a lot pain, missing work, a lot of money and time wasted. Don’t do same mistake. More...

I have had the pleasure of working with Filippo since May/June of this year (2019) after being in a fairly serious car accident in August 2017 which resulted in me smashing my scapula, breaking 2 ribs, breaking my humerus & puncturing my lung. After 4/5 months my back is considerably straighter to the point where my loved ones have noticed.I can also say was never put under any false illusions (it will take time and commitment) and genuinely feel that Filippo cares about me and wants me to improve.Cutting a very long story short I am very happy with the service provided by Filippo and the team and without question would recommend the services they provide.

The last three year have been seen by few chiropractors and I must admit that Filippo is surely the best. Not only improved my wellbeing (that was already good) but also taught me how to keep the result of the adjustments with simple exercises I can do myself at home. I recommend him to few friends and everyone has seen incredible results. The girls at the reception are friendly and caring. The booking process is smooth and easy and prices are competitive.

I've been a patient of Filippo for a while now and I am highly impressed with his capabilities in treating back and neck problems while at the same time focusing on improvements in posture that can help reduce ongoing issues. Everyone at the clinic, from the staff to the chiropractors, is always very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend to everyone! More...

I have been receiving chiropractic care for the past year from Richard. I have always been treated with the utmost professionalism, care and respect. I used to suffer with incredible headaches and migraines and since being under Richard's care they have reduced significantly (to the occasional headache per month and no migraines). Richard also manages my shoulder and mid back muscle pain and tension, providing me with effective exercises to do in between visits. I have bought a package deal that enables me to attend regularly. I highly recommend the Chelsea & Fulham Chiropractic team for their responsiveness and timeliness! Massive thanks in particular go to Richard for improving my wellbeing- it's been life changing!

I've been going to FulhamBackCare consistently over the past month and I don't know where I would be without them. I've tried other Chiros yet they are always very patient and caring, and willing to listen to my concerns. I can't recommend highly enough

I don't usually write reviews, but had to on this occasion due to the fake bad reviews I've seen about Richard de Bois. Richard fixed my neck and back pains within a few sessions, he actually told me I didn't need to carry on, which is a truly professional chiropractor. In addition to his chiropractic treatments, he also is a brilliant acupuncturist. His acupuncture and chiropractic treatments work hand-in-hand to cure many aches and pains, and I have absolutely no problem recommending Richard to any prospective customers.Richard and team are incredibly polite and professional. Richard has always seen me on time and on occasion given me extra time when other patients have not turned up, at no extra cost. More...

Amazing clinic with highly qualified professionals. In the last year I had 20+ visits in several others clinics/specialist over 10 images test and nothing. At Chelsea & Fulham Back Care with Richard De Bois I got finally diagnosed and receiving appropriate treatment. I got very emotional after my second treatment with that feeling of being on the right track. Just the best!!! More...

One day I woke up and my neck , back and left shoulder were stuck and any movement gave me a great deal of pain. A&E doctors wanted to give me sedatives to let the pain fade away. Then I googled Chiropractor in Chelsea and booked an appointment with Mr Filippo Verretta, after an x-ray and consultation Filippo managed to 'unblock' me... It was such a great relief. I then decided to buy a 12 session package saving quite a lot but, most importantly, I have never had stiff neck nor back pain since. Very grateful to Filippo. The whole staff is also welcoming and friendly. Thank you. Dani More...

I’ve been attending Fulham Backcare for over 3 years because of my dodgy back. The staff are always helpful and friendly and I’ve always been seen on time. I currently see Richard for chiropractic treatments and Umut for sports massage. Both are very knowledgable and know their business inside out. I feel a great improvement after visiting each of them. They both tailor the treatments depending on symptoms since my last visit. The reception staff are always happy, friendly and helpful too. I have tried different therapists before finding FB. I have found the therapists at FB to understand my needs and target the issues that I present. A very happy customer. I can’t recommend you guys highly enough. More...

Since I moved to London (18 months ago), I struggled to find a chiropractor and was always in pain. I found #FulhamBackCare on Groupon and never looked back! In 3 weeks (going 2x per week) I felt like a completely new person. I had 90% less pain. I can highly recommend the chiropractors at this practice! More...

I’ve had back and neck problems my entire adult life. Richard and Rob’s practice have been the answer: superb treatment that has me moving like a teenager again. Back pain is not only debilitating but a bit frightening as well and the team at FBC are so friendly and helpful, right from Ola and the lovely guys on reception right through to the treatments themselves. Can not recommend more highly. More...

I normally do not write reviews, but I must because I want to warn all of you to NOT go here!!!
Went to this Clinic yesterday, upon my arrival I straight away noticed a form on the sofa with personal customer details.
When pointing this out to the receptionist (I initially thought she had left it there by accident), she told me in a rude manner "I don't think it concerns you?!".
The Chiropractor arrived 30 mins late, and without an apology he told me I should book another appointment as he is fully booked for the rest of the day.
Very unprofessional and rude staff!

Fulham Chiro's are the best in London. Rob, Rich, and Filipo have helped me recover from a sports neck injury. I went through three different UK chiropractor practices over two years with no end in sight to my ailment. Once I met these three i immediately felt as ease. They provide unmatchable medical guidance, professionalism and comfort. I believe they provide the best neck and spine recovery service in England. More...

I can't recommend Rob and the practice high enough. About 6 years ago my bad posture and long hours in the office resulted in lower back pain. This stopped me to play football and caused issues in everyday life. Thanks to Rob's competence and 1st class treatment my condition was improved and body healed. The issue would have been causing otherwise an irreversible damage to my spine. If you have pain act before it goes too far. You will be amazed how your body reacts to chiropractic, it makes you understand how to listen to your body's needs, live healthier and to your full potential. More...

Great customer service experience with both clinicians and front office staff. Also received phenomenal clinical care from the chiropractor and massage therapist. I went about four times and they really helped to resolve my issues. After several few months away, now I’m ready to go back to get another massage and adjustment to help clear out the toll holiday stress is taking on my body! I absolutely recommend this clinic. Look forward to returning. My husband goes here, as well. More...

I've been going to Fulham Back Care for over two years - the difference in my health has been enormous as a result of the excellent care provided by the team there. They offer a number of services; I use the chiropody, acupuncture and massage which have made a huge difference for me. The team is very professional and always helpful, and I've often been able to book in for appointments at short notice when my back/neck are particularly bad. I 100% recommend them - I actually moved out of Fulham and now travel 90 minutes to get my monthly fix; absolutely worth it though! More...

Went there in July 2016. Had already committed to go to another chiropractor otherwise this would have been my first choice.

Charlotte the chiropractor is an extremely strong lady! Peggy the masseuse gave me the best massage I've ever had. Stephanie the front of house lady was very friendly. There was another lady I saw who I think might be called Claire. Excellent professional company. 2 fingers to whomever says otherwise lol.

I feel very lucky to have been recommended to Rob and his team. When I first saw Rob I could hardly run due to issues in one hamstring. Two physio therapists and a back surgeon had diagnosed it as sciatica plus SJ dysfunction and were unsuccessful in treating it. Within two months of seeing Rob twice a week I was able to do all the sports I love at a high level without pain and achieving 'personal bests' (athletics). I now see Rob for check ups twice a month. I do get the odd sports injury which Rob has always been able to treat. I have two teenage daughters who spend a lot of time at their desks studying. Even though they play a variety of sports, this time spent 'hunched' effects their spine and chest. I am glad Rob monitors them and makes adjustments (and gives reminders) when needed. Thank you!! More...

D
8 November 2016

I've been treated by many chiropractors over the years so I've have a lot of comparative experience. I'd say Rob is right up there at the top and has a uniquely effective approach in that he combines adjustments with the dry needling to trigger knotted muscles - this compliments the traditional chiropractic perfectly and makes the treatments much more effective

Q&A

Eat better, move better and think better… to good health.

“We are born to express health. We are not born to express sickness and we are certainly not victims to our genes.

The human DNA or genome has not changed in 10 000 years (Hunter/Gatherer Years) therefore how we moved, ate and lived 10 000 years ago is essentially how we should be moving, eating and living today. What has changed beyond recognition, particularly in the past 100 years, is our environment, mainly from the Industrial revolution to the modern day technology boom. Our genes therefore, are not faulty, as some health professions will have you believe. Rather our modern day environment is not congruent with our genetic make up, resulting in modern day health challenges we commonly see, particularly in the western world. These health challenges range from back and neck pain to type 2 diabetes and cancer. We eat incorrect foods, we are under constant stress, we sit too much, we are changing our posture for the worse, we are becoming more sedentary and we don’t move to our full potential. These are just a few results of living in an incongruent environment.

In-order to successfully care for modern day health challenges we need to live as congruent as possible to the human genome. This is where my passion sits. By helping you move better, eat better and think better, we can help you function better in a modern day environment.

As a Sports and Wellness Chiropractor it is my mission to help guide my patients to make the best lifestyle choices, to lead them to a healthy life, allowing them to express their full potential. After all, without your health, what do you have? Seems like a logical question, yet so few of us invest in our own Health.

Medicine has a major part to play in removing disease and treating illness and they are the best at it, however an ounce of prevention will always trump a truck load of cure. Chiropractic Wellness Care is more than just treating ones pain. We educate all or patients in what true health means and we provide guidance on how to get healthy and maintain health too. We only truly value our health once is is gone or reduced so i started my business to educate all those who want to live a long happy healthy life. If you invest in our health, you will reap the rewards.

I completed my Masters Degree in Chiropractic in 1998 at the Department of Chiropractic, Natal University, South Africa. I left with sound training in the Science, Art and Philosophy of Chiropractic. I published my master’s thesis in the J.M.P.T. My course covered all aspects of human sciences, biochemistry, microbiology, x-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic, physiotherapeutic intervention, rehabilitation, massage and wellness (sleep, exercise, diet, mental stress and posture).

I have been honoured to work at/with the following: South African Rugby; Gunston 500 (world champion international surfing); World champion strong man and South African Provincial Athletic Meets. Since practicing in the UK, I have been fortunate to work with the Pan African Dance Company. I have also helped out at the European MTV awards. Patients who have come to the clinic include Dido, Holly Johnson, Murray Head, Danni Minogue, Christopher Lee, Liam Payne and many others.

Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
