Shal Bhatia D.C


I am Shal Bhatia (M.Chiro) Doctor of Chiropractic, and your local Chiropractor within the Jewellery Quarter area of Birmingham. I graduated at the Welsh institute of Chiropractic in South Wales. 

Alot of people ask me how I got myself into Chiropractic? I started to play rugby when I was younger, which caused me to have neck pain, I tried different methods to stop and prevent the pain. After a short period, I knew that these solutions didn’t actually help the underlying issues but only hid them. I knew this wasn’t the correct approach to take. Therefore the next protocol was a Chiropractic Clinic. 

After visiting an awesome chiropractor who explained everything simply and meticulously. They helped to prevent the problems reoccurring in my neck and even encouraged me to continue playing rugby. I was at that important stage in my life where I needed to decide what my future may hold for me. I always knew I wanted to help people. Chiropractic was the answer for my career path, and what better way to help, then with my own hands. 

Chiropractic is a primary health care profession, which means you do not need a referral to see me. I am trained in being able to diagnose, treat and prevent mechanical dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system (muscles, bones and joints) and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustments and other joints and soft tissue manipulations. (WFC, 2011). 

On the conditions pages I’ve explained some of the common conditions chiropractic care can help with. I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council and the United Chiropractic association. 

My passion for Chiropractic grew through every year of the 5 years spent at University. The final year was a placement, treating patients. After graduating I moved to London, where I had the opportunity to concentrate helping patients achieve their full potential from simple changes in their mechanical dysfunctions, general health, and posture. I was fortunate to have the experience of seeing alot of patients in this time. From this I have decided to come back to my local community, as I always wanted to be back home. To provide safe and affordable health care to Birmingham, I hope you can be apart of my dream.
