Meet Mike

Dr Mike Paull BSc DC

Doctor of Chiropractic and Managing Director of the Hospital.

Bonjour and welcome to our hospital. A native of Wigan myself, I am both very proud and happy to say that I've probably treated at least half of the local population by now since starting practice at Wigan Family Chiropractic Hospital in 2003. I enjoy making a contribution to the health and wellbeing of our patients, helping people out of pain and back into a happier, healthier life is what I feel to be my purpose.

Many of our patients have been suffering for years and have come to believe that they have to live with it. Fortunately, Chiropractic care makes a big difference for these people, and as they will tell you, they are no longer living with it! Over the decade I have developed a keen interest in athletics, and in 2012, I completed 9 triathlons, the Liverpool marathon, 3 different 10K road races, and a 5K road race. I've found that this has given me a lot of insight into how our athletic (and weekend athlete) patients become injured and how to help them.

I believe in offering my patients the best care, and so I regularly travel around the UK undergoing postgraduate training so that I can provide you with the very best and latest care options.

I am always happy to speak to prospective patients over the telephone, as many people like to get an idea of what we can do to help before coming into the hospital. If this sounds like you, please give me a ring.

My favourite post-graduate course; this has taught me many ways to assess in infinite depth both athletic and non-athletic patients and enables me to really enhance the Chiropractic care I deliver.
