Welcome to the Kenworthy Chiropractic news page. Check in frequently to find out what’s happening at the clinic. We’ll be posting all the latest news as well as hints and tips to improve your health, chiropractic articles, videos and even the occasional competition.
We have Janine Cotterill observing in the clinic today. Janine is a 3rd year student of the McTimoney College of Chiropractic in Manchester. Janine first visited Kenworthy Chiropractic last spring when she helped us give free posture screens on Miller Park as part of Spinal Awareness Week. It's great to have her back for the day.
Martial arts expert Nicola Jane Aindow was all set to compete in the Tokyo International Open IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship when she injured her right knee. With only a few weeks until the competition Nicola feared the worst, but after her visit to Kenworthy Chiropractic she was soon back on the road to recovery and her Japanese dream was kept alive. Some of you may know Nicola from the women’s self defence classes she runs at Gracie Barra Preston. Nicola is a martial arts expert with over 25 years experience and a PhD to boot. Whilst Nicola hails from Tarleton she is now based in Oslo, Norway. Nicola pointed out that “the two main reasons I return to Preston is for my Jiu-Jitsu training and to visit Kenworthy Chiropractic. I’ve tried numerous chiropractors in the past, but this is the only treatment I’ve had that fixed my issues without making me feel like I’d taken a kicking." Indeed, Doctor of Chiropractic Johanna McCormick treats a number of wrestlers; MMA artists, boxers and Jiu-Jitsu specialists at Kenworthy Chiropractic and she works hard to keep them fighting fit and injury free between bouts.
"If I could have a session every day, I would!! Having scoliosis has caused quite a few problems for me. Johanna has not only helped to massively relieve these problems already in just two sessions, she's also helped make sense of why I have them and what can be done to ease them as much as possible. I leave feeling lighter, empowered with a newfound understanding of my condition/problems and in a lot less pain. Thank you thank you thank you!
Can't recommend her enough."
Kenworthy Chiropractic is growing. We're having a new floor put into the back room so that we can build a second treatment room. We won't be hiring a second chiropractor immediately, but it's very much in the pipeline. We're also putting in a floor covering and some heating in the staff toilet so it can be used by our patients.
Kenworthy Chiopractic is now providing free hot beverages for all our patients. The clinic manager will be happy to prepare you a cup of his own blend freshly ground coffee, a good old cuppa, or a herbal tea.
What better way to show your partner you care then buying them a treatment at Kenworthy Chiropractic? Okay, you could maybe buy them a car...Or a weekend break, but failing that a chiropractic treatment is pretty amazing. Just call in to the clinic and we'll be happy to help.

Whilst on holiday in Goa Johanna McCormick DC felt a little out of shape after the 9 hour flight. So, she dropped in on her friend Alison Bale and swapped treatments (a real case of 'you fix my back, I'll fix yours'). Johanna felt fully revived after one treatment and would highly recommend a visit to Walking Tall in Candolim/Margao if you ever find yourself down that way.
If you want to be Christmas ready there are still a few appointments available on Tuesday 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st of December. Then we're back on Thursday28th, Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of December. In the New Year the clinic will be open from Tuesday 2nd of January until Thursday the 4th of January. The clinic will then be closed until Tuesday 23rd of January. We've already taken a number of bookings for that week, so if you're thinking of booking don't leave it too long.
We'd like to send out a big thank you to all our patients that referred their friends, or family to us this year. This morning Johanna drew the raffle to see which of these kind people had won our £50 Marks and Spencer's voucher. The winner was a Mrs. C from Ashton and she has been informed of her win. Congratulations once again from Johanna and Stuart.
Here at Kenworthy Chiropractic we pride ourselves on providing a first class service. We aim to resolve your health issue as quickly as possible with the minimum number of treatments. This means we need to get more patients through the door, but happy patients tend to spread the word. Indeed, many of our patients have been so impressed they've made appointments for their entire family. In some cases our patients enjoy their treatments so much that Johanna as had to persuade them to visit less frequently.
Preston comes in for a lot of flak and whilst we’d agree that the transport system is hellish there’s a lot to love about this old town (city). In this post I’ll be covering some of Kenworthy Chiropractic’s favourite places to eat and drink. If you’d like a good cup of coffee and a delicious piece of ginger loaf cake (our favourite) and would rather avoid the chains then you should try Paluca’s on Guildhall Street. For a cheap and spicy lunch we can’t resist Coco’s Soul Food on Friargate, close to the Adelphi roundabout. Our favourite burger restaurant is We Don’t Give a Fork on Guildhall Street – Delicious, big portions and great value. Solita’s on Winckly Square is great for sharing platters of American style goodies. For dinner we usually go to the New Continental on South Meadow Lane or the The Theatre Street Bar and Grill on Theatre . We’ve been hearing great things about the Olive Tree Brasserie, so we’ll be giving that a try next. We love Indian food best of all and East Z East on Church Street has a few unusual dishes on its menu (The Paya, or “lamb’s trotters” (hooves surely?) is fantastic). When it comes to a pint we don’t really bother with the fashionable watering holes. We prefer the ‘old men’ type of pubs like the Old Vic on Fishergate. It’s not fancy, but they know how to look after their beer and it’s always very friendly. Alternatively, we wander down to The Bluebell on Church Street for a very cheap organic lager. So, that’s our choice – Where would you recommend?
Do you have Present Wrapper’s Elbow? Tinsel Trimmer’s Wrist, or Christmas Tree Trauma? Then why not buy yourself the gift of chiropractic care and make sure you’re fighting fit for the festivities? Kenworthy Chiropractic is open until Friday December the 22nd. And, should you do yourself a mischief over the Christmas period we’re open from Thursday 28th of December until Saturday 30th off December so we can put you back together in time for the New Year’s celebrations.
Johanna and Stuart would like to extend a warm welcome to Lynsey Watson Dc who will be joining Kenworthy Chiropractic later this week. Lynsey trained with Johanna and is her very own her trusted chiropractor. Lynsey will be helping out at the clinic when we're very busy, or when Johanna is taking a break. We're sure you'll enjoy the same level of skill and care that you're used to from Johanna.
"I arrived at Kenworthy Chiropractic frightened and injured, and now I'm mended! Johanna has fixed my back / sciatica problems, and cured a long-standing neck problem for good measure. Above all, she is comfortable to be with, and really empathetic. I see so many people in Preston with limps, and I know how exhausting and confidence-draining a limp can be - I'd love you all to visit Johanna and see if she can fix you too."
Johanna McCormick DC will be taking a fortnight's break from the 4th of January 2108 - Although, she will be working between Christmas and New Year and for three days at the beginning of January. Should you need an appointment whilst Johanna is away we've arranged some holiday cover. Lynsey Watson DC will be working on the weekends from the 5th-7th and the 12th-14th of January. Lynsey is also a McTimoney chiroprractor that trained with Johanna. Indeed, she's Johanna's chiropractor so we're leaving in some very capable hands. To check availability for January we would recommend you use our online booking facility.
Doctor of Chiropractic Johanna McCormick practices McTimoney chiropractic because she believes in a holistic approach to chiropractic care. The McTimoney approach is well known for being a precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care. Moreover, the gentle nature of chiropractic the McTimoney way makes it suitable for people throughout their lifetime from babyhood to those in later life. Here's our latest 5* review from Peter explaining his experience of a McTimoney treatment:"On previously having had a posture check at one of the Health Melas I decided to take Johanna up on her advice regarding her findings. Over two appointments, she realigned my posture and I left feeling like I was walking on air. I have had Chiropractic care for many years, but the McTimoney treatment method Johanna practices is by far the best I have experienced."
