In January 2009 I had a minor RTA causing a whiplash injury. I was treated as a minor soft tissue damage injury and advised accordingly. I had seen My GP and a few months later a physiotherapist but nothing seemed change how much pain I was in. After following standard medical advice, my pain gradually got worse and found months later I becoming more dependant on painkillers to function in daily life. I felt like a wreck. In October 2009 I was recommended to go to Westcountry Family Chiropractic by my Homeopath. Within two weeks I had my first appointment an X-ray and a diagnosis. It was clear, with vertebrae out of place, I had had a serious whiplash injury, this explained my continuous pain I had for 10 months I was so relieved. After three weeks and 5 adjustments, my back pain diminishing and I was feeling on top of the world, there was a vacancy to join this fabulous team as a Chiropractic Assistant.Read more…

Chiropractic has been a big part of my life since joining a busy practice in Brighton in 2012. I have always been interested in health and wellbeing and was amazed at the difference chiropractic made to so many people with a variety of health concerns.

Having moved back Cornwall in 2016, I was introduced to Westcountry Family Chiropractic and was delighted to be welcomed into the family. Working on the front desk is extremely rewarding, I have especially enjoyed getting to know the individuals who have come into the clinic and being part of their journey to health and vitality

Linda Curnoe – Practice Care


I came into chiropractic care about six years ago with absolutely no idea of what to expect, I just knew that I had to do something about the pain I was in, I didn’t want to go down the seemingly endless pain-killer road that I knew would only relieve the symptoms without getting to the cause. Not only did I walk out of the clinic feeling a whole lot better I learned so much about how my body was working, and better than that, how it was supposed to work! I left with future appointments and HOPE where previously I had felt that my hopes for a healthy future were minimal. The initial, and continuing education and guidance that I receive from Dr. Maryellen, and her wonderful team, regarding my condition both then and now is so positive it has enabled me to be much more pro-active in maintaining my own good health. With this and the Chiropractors expert care, incredible knowledge and amazingly skilled hands I have been enabled to live a much healthier life. I don’t have the words to express my gratitude sufficiently and I wish I had known about chiropractic at a much earlier stage in my life; I would definitely have liked to have brought my children up in this wonderful system of natural health care.


Sadie: The meet & greet practice Pup!



Sadie was born in 2016 and within months decided to come join us when Maryellen is in clinic, she is very friendly and will usually come to greet you with a sniff and a waggy tail and occasionally will bring you her ball to gently play her favourite game of fetch.   When Sadie isn’t  greeting our patients or sleeping her favourite hobbies are running, learning new tricks, meeting other doggos and playing at the beach of course with any of her most favoured tennis balls and preferably in the sea!!!
