Meet Our Professional London Based Chiropractors

Dr Andrew Nurcombe-Thorne

Dr Andrew Nurcombe-Thorne


I became interested in Chiropractic from a young age after seeing how much it helped my father, an ultra marathon runner. After high school, I began my studies and graduated from the University of Johannesburg at the end of 2003. My wife and I made the decision to move to England after getting married in 2004. Soon after passing the UK board exam, I worked in a busy practice in Ealing and subsequently ran a family practice in Tooting for 7 years before settling in Waterloo.

Although I have a special interest in ergonomics and posture correction, I have a great deal of experience in treating patients of all ages with a wide variety of problems. I count myself lucky to be able to work in this profession and really enjoy being able to help my patients reach their health goals.

I enjoy cold water swimming and triathlon and I have competed in local and international competitions. I believe that this gives me an appreciation for how chiropractic can help those who want to participate in sport or exercise at any level.

Clare Down

MSc Chiro

Clare graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and holds a Masters Degree in Chiropractic.  From a young age, Clare knew she wanted to work closely with people in a healthcare setting. Having benefited greatly from chiropractic care from a young age and being an avid horse rider throughout childhood and into early adulthood chiropractic helped her recover quickly from her injuries and taught her the importance of having a spine that can function at its optimum level. 

Clare enjoys treating people of all ages and has a patient goal centred approach, and is passionate about working with patients to get what they want out of treatment. She aims to provide individualised, quality care, using a wide range of evidence-based techniques. She is particularly interested in the management and prevention of desk and work related postural issues. Clare always enjoys focusing on getting patients free from pain and then giving them techniques they can use themselves, to be proactive in their own healthcare, and preventing recurrence of their original symptoms. 

Clare is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and is a member of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA).
