STEFFEN TOATES

Chiropractor

Steffen Toates (Chiropractor in Jersey C.I.)Steffen studied at the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic and graduated in 2010 having successfully completed a four-year Master’s Degree with Merit.  Post-graduation, Steffen worked in a thriving Chiropractic Clinic in Surrey during which he committed to continued development and improvement. Steffen has attended over 500 hours of post graduate training in a variety of fields including paediatrics, rehabilitation, and nutrition.  He is currently the only chiropractor in Jersey to have completed a prestigeous qualification in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS) from the internationally renowned Prague School of Manual Medicine & Rehabilitation. DNS is an approach used in both paediatrics and in the treatment of many world class athletes.

Steffen is no stranger to pain himself having suffered 18 months with excruciating low back pain, unable to sit for more than a few minutes and managing to sleep only a few hours a night. 

Given his history of chronic pain Steffen is passionate about prevention so others don’t have to go through what he did. His study with the Prague School has given him unique insight into the impact of the early years of a child’s life on future skeletal development, posture and pain syndromes. He recognises the importance of screening in babies, infants and adults to identify and address dysfunction as early as possible in order to eliminate or minimise future problems.

Steffen enjoys working with a wide variety of patients from paediatric to geriatric populations. He has previously worked with members of the England Badminton team and is now the team chiropractor for Jersey Scottish Football Club.

I have had treatment from a few chiropractors and Steffen has done more for my problems than any previous chiropractor. I can’t speak too highly of him.
