History of the practice
Chiropractors Gordon and Annette formed The Spine Team in 2004 with their main practice now in East Barn, Lychpit Centre.
Having graduated as a chiropractors from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 1983 and 1996 respectively Gordon and Annette have years of experience in practice and have worked consistently to improve the chiropractic model for treating back pain, a problem that causes so much trouble to so many people in Basingstoke.
In spite of all the latest scanning and research the quest by medicine to understand back pain failed and in 2008 that the “Injury Model” was abandoned by top researchers and they announced that a new model for back pain was needed.
As part of this process to us at The Spine Team chiropractic means working to help our patients understand that they, rather than some arbitrary term, such as slipped disc, lumbago or sciatica are at the centre of the model, we recognise that each patient is unique and although there are many who suffer from the common types of back pain each of them is an individual with a unique life and therefore in need of an approach that recognises they may have a different route to solving their problem than the next person.
The Spine Team
The model for chiropractic treatment of back pain in Basingstoke used at The Spine Team places the patient not the problem at the centre of the model. This “Patient Centred Model” considers not just what the patient has but who they are and considers the way they lead their life and how they understand and manage their problem is as important as treatment.

Chiropractic treatment and understanding are sometimes the easy things to do, persuading people to change their life is harder! Chiropractic is not just treatment, at The Spine Team we try and ensure that advice for lifestyle change is practical, after all giving good advice that cannot be taken cannot really be considered useful! At the same time patients who just want their long term problem fixed without making any changes themselves may be on the long road to disappointment!
