Hello, I’m Alex!

I’ve been a chiropractor since 2007 when I graduated from the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Oxford following a five year degree in Chiropractic.

Alexandra Hurley BSc (Hons) Chiro

I initially worked as an associate in two clinics, one in Gloucestershire and one in Oxfordshire. I then decided to take the plunge and work by myself, basing myself in Gloucestershire. I have worked from my current clinic location in Winchcombe for almost two years now.

I enjoy the reward of getting people through painful episodes in their life, educating them about why they are suffering and what they can do, alongside chiropractic, to hopefully prevent painful recurrences.

I’ve done my teacher training with Polestar Pilates in London and I use this a lot to help patients strengthen their bodies once they are out of pain.

My background is equine, I was brought up in rural Ireland by a horse-mad mother and horse-enduring father(!). I did my BHSAI training when I left school and then spent a short while in Germany in a mixed competition yard before coming to the UK for what was meant to be six months…21 years later I am still here!

I trained in Veterinary Chiropractic at The BackBone Academy near Hamburg in Germany in 2017 which was a fantastic course that I really enjoyed. I now treat dressage and racehorses regularly at some local professional yards, so I get my horsey fix! Dogs are also a regular part of practice, with dog sports like agility and working trials becoming increasingly popular.

I love the outdoors so spend a fair few hours in the beautiful countryside walking my Labrador and absorbing the beauty of nature (even in the pouring rain!). I’m a great believer in movement as medicine so try to fit in a bit of running and pilates too. I also make sure that I myself see a chiropractor regularly so that I keep well and mobile to do my job properly!


Further Training

GCC Registered chiropractors are required to complete at least 30 hours of CPD (Continual Professional Development) annually. There’s always something new to learn and I find that there’s nothing like a good course for inspiration and keeping the passion for chiropractic alive. I’ve taken courses in Western Medical Acupuncture, Ultrasound therapy, Kinesiology taping, Muscle Energy Techniques and Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation to name a few since graduating. All of these techniques are incorporated into treatment where appropriate.

What I Treat

Pain is usually what prompts a patient to visit me initially and I treat a variety of problems including back pain, neck pain, headaches, muscle spasms and shoulder problems.

Alex and her staff are lovely and always feel so much better after each visit. Had recurring neck and upper back pain and nothing I did seemed to work to fix it. First consultation was brilliant, very thorough and with everything explained clearly. The treatment plan has been brilliant the various exercise that compliment your plan in between sessions make such a difference if you stick to them. Rarely having the same issues I used to have, feel a lot more confident in my posture and movement, overall excellent experience!

This has come up in my husbands name but I would like to thank Alex for the wonderful treatment I have had over the years mainly due to bad sleeping positions and the odd horse riding accident. Although I attended the clinic for a ligament problem I can't recommend enough the regular continued maintenance visit. I am always amazed how a body can need the slightest adjustment and Alex spots these things before they become an issue.

Ron F

Alex has really helped over the years with various issues I’ve had. Ranging from shoulder and back pain I’d got since the birth of my son and running injuries of the knee and hip. Alex is great at quick fixes but also longer term “maintenance” so issues don’t reoccur.

Alex is fantastic. I can't believe what a difference I can feel after a treatment! Not only that she's so lovely (and patient). She's the fourth emergency service for me

Jo W

Alex has helped my lower back pain massively, I wouldn't know where I would be without her! She's got me out of pain but more than that has educated me on how my body moves so I don't get back to where I was at the beginning. And she is just such a friendly and giving person, I am so pleased I chose to start my chiropractic journey with her 🙂

Charlotte T

Alex and Charlotte are professional and always go that extra mile, even in lockdown I had video appointments with Alex to get me moving again! Have been seeing Alex for over 10 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly recommended
