About BurnbraeHealth

Welcome to the Burnbrae Health website - I hope you find it useful.
At Burnbrae Health my aim is to get you feeling better as fast as I can.

I offer a drug-free way of treating conditions such as back & neck pain, pain in the arms or legs, head-ache and other musculo-skeletal problems.  I use chiropractic techniques, (western medical) acupuncture, and advice / gentle persuasion (!) to help improve your health status.

Chiropractic is a gentle, manual health care system suitable for all ages, from the elderly to children & infants.  I am experienced in a number of techniques, so if you have heard of the 'pops & cracks' and aren't keen, just let me know and I will use an alternative technique.

Acupuncture is a therapy that has been practised for thousands of years. I use a form known as western medical acupuncture - based on modern theories of physiology and pain relief.

My name is Chris Swaffield and after 5 years full time university study, I qualified as a chiropractor in 2005 with a BSc in Chiropractic. I ran my own practice in Devon for 5 years before moving to the Borders in 2011. As well as running BurnbraeHealth in the Kelso area, I also work at Borders Chiropractic in Peebles.  If you have any comments or questions please call me.

All chiropractors must be registered with the statutory governing body, the General Chiropractic Council.  My registration number is 2569.

I am also a member of the  British Chiropractic Association and a former member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society
