The Clinic


Occupying a modern extension to the Old Police House in Botley, we have a sizeable, comfortable reception area. If you are a few minutes early you can enjoy complimentary coffee while you browse the latest issues of a range of magazines. You are welcome to relax in the same way after your treatment.

We have six spacious treatment rooms over two floors and a variety of chiropractic benches, each with specialist functions should the chiropractor need them, i.e. flexion-distraction for sciatic/disc problems, hi-lo function to transfer from a standing position to prone on the bench. Our pregnancy cushion allows child-bearers to lie face down on the bench with minimal discomfort and we have a plethora of treatment aids – activators, supine/prone blocks, mini-pro thumpers, interferential and ultrasound – enough to satisfy any chiropractor.

A Little History




The clinic was established over 40 years ago by renowned chiropractor Ray Broome on his return to Oxford. The clinic moved to it's present location in Botley some 15 years ago and at that time Ray entered into a partnership with Daniel Lane. On Ray's retirement two years later Daniel continued to run the clinic until 2006, when he moved to Australia. Doctor of Chiropractic Caroline Shanks has been at the helm since then.
