Tim Lynch

Tim Lynch MSc(Chiro), DC, CCEP


Originally from London, Tim graduated from the prestigious Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, Bournemouth in 2000 and has been living and working in Cheshire and Manchester since 2001. He took over the clinics in Alderley and Didsbury in 2007.

As well as the clinics, Tim has worked for a number of professional football clubs. He spent 8 years working in-house with clubs, but now just see players on a private basis in the clinic. He is one of only a handful of chiropractors in the UK to have worked within a Premier League football club.

As a keen sportsman, Tim has benefited from quality chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage over the years. Following a serious fall in 2008 he elected not to have the proposed operation on his shoulder and 12 weeks later completed the Blenheim Triathlon, following successful chiropractic and physiotherapy.

When not at work Tim enjoys swimming, triathlons, golf, skiing and generally keeping fit. In 2016 he completed the Staveley Lakeland Trail Run, the Henley Classic Swim (getting in to the Thames at 4.30am in order to do so!), the Bantham Swoosh and recently the Aspire Uswim Night Swim. On Sunday mornings he can also be found coaching his son's Under 8s rugby team. He appreciates the importance of eating properly (yes junk food really is what it says!) so aims to practise what he preaches in order to stay well.

A beautiful wife and two young children keep Tim busy and needless to say provide more joy and laughter (with occasional frustration!) than any of us can find elsewhere.

If you’d like to talk about whether Tim may be able to help you please call the clinic and he'll be more than happy to do so.

Sports Therapist & Masseuer

Richard is a Sports Therapist who utilises various massage techniques in the re-conditioning of the soft tissues of the body. He has experience of dealing with a wide range of clients made of up members of the public (non-sporting) for rehabilitative, correctional and well-being treatments, as well as Tri-athletes, Weight Lifters, Footballers, Rugby players (League and Union), Runners (Sprint to Ultra), Canoeists, Cyclists (Road, MTB, Track), Dancers (Ballet/Classical/Modern), Hockey players, Golfers, Lacrosse players, Gaelic Footballers and Rowers.

He has been asked to support the London Marathon, the Great North Run (providing post-event massage on behalf of the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association) and has worked at many other outdoor endurance events (Lakeland 50 & 100 milers, triathlon) providing Sports and Massage Therapies in often remote locations!

Richard has enjoyed competing in a wide variety of sports both contact and individual, so he understands the stresses and strains that a body will undergo. He has completed an Ironman triathlon so he understands the mental and physical demands of endurance sports in great detail. Richard has learnt that with the right application of appropriate Chiropractic and Soft Tissue treatment, as well as pre/post event care, then it is possible to improve performances and above all gain relief from aches and pains and the other repetitive strain injuries that our bodies are exposed to.

Richard is a family man, he walks his two beagles whenever they are awake, he plays golf, rides his bike, goes to Core Fitness classes, enjoys travel and does his best to avoid DIY and staying still.

Debbie Charlesworth


A temporary replacement when her daughter had to leave us and now she’s been working at the clinic for 9 years!

As well as working here Debbie is also a very grateful patient. Having had a bad back for several years, which forced her to give up horse riding and carriage driving, she is now back in the saddle following successful treatment from Tim. She continues with regular treatment to ensure there’s no going back. When not at work she enjoys spending time with her grandchildren and horses. She also has chickens and keeps the clinic supplied with eggs!
