Andrew Miles is an experienced chiropractor particularly interested in diagnosing and treating more tricky conditions that haven’t responded to other therapies and approaches. He works with patients of all ages. Whilst practising chiropractic in Cardiff, he has successfully treated many Welsh and international athletes, footballers, rugby players, actors, musicians, martial artists, skiers, snowboarders and has previously worked in conjunction with the occupational health department at the BBC when it was in Llandaff.

Andrew can help with issued related to musculoskeletal problems, acute and chronic back pain, disc injuries, sciatica, trapped nerves, neck pain, headaches, migraines, joint pain, muscle spasm and cramp, sports injuries, shoulder pain and complaints, elbow pain and complaints, ankle sprains and injuries, plantar fasciitis, symptoms arising from tension and inability to relax.

Andrew feels that often “patients have put up with an underlying problem for a long period of time and have developed compensation coping strategies but never get rid of the condition. With accurate diagnosis I aim to treat the main cause of the condition and give advice including exercises to reduce reoccurrence.”

In 2021, Andrew was appointed to the Professional Conduct Committee of the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). He has served on the National Council of the Royal College of Chiropractors from 2001-2010 and has been Chair of the South Wales CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Faculty from 2001-2012.
