The Chiropractors


Dr Pippa Jones (Dr of Chiropractic)


Dr Pippa Ross (Dr of Chiropractic)
Pippa is Director and Principal Chiropractor of the Optimal Chiropractic & Wellness Centre and is a local girl. Having been born in Cardiff and brought up and educated in the surrounding area. Pippa graduated from the nearby Welsh Institute of Chiropractic and served her associateship in Glasgow before returning home to practice nearby.

Pippa's first experience of Chiropractic was in a time of crisis following a horseriding accident, she was having migraines daily and severe back pain which was taking over every aspect of her life. The only help on offer was painkillers and anti inflammatories and the future looked bleak. A course of Chiropractic care turned things around and she knew she wanted to be involved with this fantastic profession. She still gets adjusted regularly to make sure she stays healthy and prevent future problems.

Outside the practice Pippa leads an active life and enjoys weight training, triathlon and horseriding, regularly competing her horse.

NB: The use of the title Dr refers to Doctor of Chiropractic and does not imply the Chiropractors are medical doctors.
