We Achieve Your Health And Fitness Goals
Having suffered with sciatica on and off for several years, a friend recommended Chris of Ad Fitness as a treatment option.
At first I was sceptical due to the many failed previous treatment modalities I had tried, however I made an appointment.
Chris was the first therapist that took a full injury history from birth, he asked about surgeries, hospital visits, scars, dental work, accidents, strains, sprains, aches and pains.
During our sessions he not only helped my body to permanently overcome sciatica but also to release jaw tension, re-allign my hips through exercise, release repetitive strain injuries which strengthened my wrists, alleviate the pains from tennis elbow which strengthened my elbows, cleared twitching from one of my eyes which in turn cleared some old fear based triggers around an eye injury that I had previously forgotten about, he also cleared the weakness in my knees and as an unexpected bonus, once all the injuries were healed, my symptoms of anxiety and depression became negligible.
It has become clear to me that I misunderstood my body's way of communicating and that aches, pains, anxiety and depression are part of its communication process.
Since my initial treatment last year I have recommended his services to my friends and colleagues. I have also recommended NKT as an excellent treatment option for my family members who live further afield. NKT is the way forward as it treats the whole body which has an impact on ones state of mind.
Chris is now my first port of call for any muscle, tendon, nerve or bone issues that arise from what doctors call either 'the ageing process' or 'natural wear and tear'. He has given me back my mobility and my mental health ... I am eternally grateful.
I have used chris on several occasions to help overcome injury’s that I have suffered through running and football and I have always had good results.My recent injury being a hamstring injury but somehow found the root cause being from my ankle and calf.Always feel re-energised and more flexible after the therapy.Definatly recommend Chris Adams
- Chris Addis
I would highly recommend Chris Adams to anyone. I have used him on several occasions to help with various injuries. Originally I had a hip problem which Chris discovered had stemmed from quad and ligament injuries from years before hand.
Chris has since rectified a few knee and foot problems as well.
The service he provides is always first class and everything throughout the process is always explained in detail.
My confidence and knowledge of the body has allowed me to push myself to achieve more in my running than I ever could have imagined. Can't thank Chris enough for his efforts in helping with this!
- Lee Kibble
I have used Chris several times and always come away happy. Chris is professional but sympathetic always explaining what he is doing and why you are in pain. I have learnt so much about how my body works through my treatments with Chris. I have highly recommended Chris to family and friends. No problem you have is too small or big for Chris to work through.

I went to see Chris Adams for some NKT because I am training for the London marathon, when I was doing a long run I was finding pain in my left shoulder and pain in my right knee, he evaluated all of the complaint areas and spent some time sourcing the original problem which was my head, we did some exercises on the day to build the strength back in the muscles that were playing me up, we then spent some time discussing home exercises for me to continue strengthening my arm and knee! Since then my runs are so much more comfortable and I feel faster! Thank you so much Chris I will continue to recommend you! 100% top service and very attentive! Thanks again!
I had been suffering with a groin injury for just over 4 weeks, which stopped me participating in exercise and caused me to walk with a limp. I then visited Chris for a consultation which was very detailed and he picked up on issues that I had which was causing the groin problems. He then treated these other issues which allowed my groin problem to clear up fully within 2 weeks. Within this 2 week period I was also given exercises to do to help strengthen then area. I was back playing Football within 2 weeks and have had no recurring problems to date. A great professional and knows his stuff!

Chris is a wizard! Say to say he has the eye of an eagle when it comes to movement problems! He really cares for his clients and always makes sure the problem is resolved as effectively and efficiently as possible!
- John Shevlin
I can't praise Chris enough! I went to him with knee and hip problems which were stopping me from running, and he put an incredible amount of thought and effort into discovering what was causing the issues - which was far from straightforward. His knowledge is impressive, and he found that there were several other issues that were actually causing the pain. He's also great to work with, and has a good sense of humour, which made the sessions enjoyable as well as beneficial. I'm very happy to report that I'm now back running again and gradually getting back to the speed and mileage I used to do. I highly recommend him - I've had physio and sports massages in the past, but nothing else has really helped like these sessions. Thank you so much Chris - I know it wouldn't have happened without you!

Chris continues to develop his expertise, in fact a would describe him as being at the leading edge of NKT. He recently treated me for an historical problem using his new skills and ever increasing experience which resulted in a very positive outcome for me. The important thing for me is that as his business grows he retains those very important values and ethos that have always made him stand out.
A great young man doing some terrific work. Thanks again Chris.

What I Do
PDTR (or or Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex) is a revolutionary neurological intervention allowing a practitioner to screen for, assess and correct faulty stimulus to the brain.
NKT allows us to get clients out of pain and help them regain confidence in their bodies which they may have lost due to injury or ongoing pain. Taking a whole body approach and studying the clients history ensures we deliver lasting results. It is useful for all sort of pain, from sports injuries to back pain relief.
