Meet Dr Stephen McCarthy (Chiropractor)

An injury left me in constant pain. I’d always had a bit of a twinge in my lower back. Then I’d done something silly and stepped off of a kerb wrong. I couldn’t even stand up from the injury I got from this simple misstep!

For several months, I couldn’t find a solution. The pain was constant and there was no solution medical professionals could find for me.

Trying Out Chiropractic

Totton Chiropractor, Stephen McCarthy

Dr Stephen McCarthy (Chiropractor)

A friend suggested I try chiropractic. I’d never even heard of it before. I decided to give it a go, and it was amazing to see instant results. It worked fantastically well for me and I wondered why chiropractic was so effective when the medical world didn’t have any answers. My dad suggested I consider becoming a chiropractor, and I realised it was a great idea.

Chiropractic Studies

Dr Stephen began reading and finding out everything he could about chiropractic. He then enrolled on a five year full-time study in Oxfordshire. He graduated in 2009 with a BSc (Hons) in Chiropractic.

While at Oxfordshire, he learned about chiropractic’s natural approach and working with the body instead of against it. I gained valuable clinical experience working in a busy chiropractic clinic prior to establishing Active Chiropractic here in Totton.

It’s a pleasure and an honour to offer the benefits of chiropractic care to others every day.

Living a Healthy Lifestyle

Dr Stephen is extremely interested in anything relating to health, sports and nutrition. He trains 3 or 4 times a week at his home gym and is getting into high-intensity training workout programs. He also does martial arts a couple of times a week.

My wife, Stormee, is originally from Australia and works with me at Active Chiropractic as our receptionist and massage therapist. We have two children who are grown and live in Australia.
