Dr John Bradford Chiropractor

John Bradford is a 18-year Professional Chiropractor graduating from AECC in 1999, who has been based in Bournemouth since 2012. Before becoming a Bournemouth based Chiropractor, John took up a successful and busy associate position in a Chiropractic clinic in Oxford. During that time, he quickly worked his way up to a partnership position and is now sole owner of the clinic.

Over the last 16 years John has continued to build his qualifications by working with many eminent Chiropractors and has gained lots of experience at many different levels.

John has treated various members of Oxford United Football team, the Renault Formula One team, Williams Formula One team, Oxford Athletics and Oxford Harlequins Rugby club. He has been fortunate enough to treat gold medal athletes and the world number 2 motocross rider, and a world bench press champion.

John is very aware of how debilitating and distracting pain can be and would like to help people understand their conditions and the aggravating factors so they are better prepared to achieve their goals without being held back.

His dream is to become a local community Chiropractor in Bournemouth and to that end decided to set up the Bournemouth Back Pain Centre making full use of his knowledge and experience helping people from all walks of life to a better quality of life more locally.

Dr Joonas Savolainen

Joonas was first introduced to chiropractic care after experiencing a long history of low back pain while playing junior ice hockey in Finland.

He first began his pursue towards chiropractic by studying Health Sciences at Douglas College in Canada where he completed a Sports Sciences Diploma in 2013 before returning back to Finland to study a massage therapy where he obtained his Registered Massage Therapy qualifications. After a short time working, he decided to pursue a masters degree in chiropractic at the AECC University College in 2015 from where he received his Masters in Chiropractic 1st in 2019. While in England, he has also completed additional training in Active Release Technique and Shockwave Therapy to further deepen his knowledge and understanding of the human body.

Outside of clinic and caring for patients Joonas enjoys spending time with his wife and five year old Staffie Luna, and training Brazilian jiu-jitsu which he has been training and competing since 2007. He received his black belt in 2018.

Joonas is a big advocate of combining manual therapy modalities, activity modification and exercise prescription to achieve long term success in patient care.

Klaudia Bradford - Sports Massage Therapist


After completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Management & Marketing studies Klaudia pursued a 10-year career in the hospitality management in Oxfordshire and Bournemouth reaching the positions of Operation manager and Deputy Hotel Manager.

In 2013 she decided to join the Back Pain Centre Team so as to be able to work on a more one to one level with the public rather than being part of a corporate brand. Working here inspired her to gain her Sports Therapy qualifications which further allowed her to engage and help people more.

Klaudia is a very motivated person who is always expanding her skills and striving to deliver her best.

Outside work she enjoys running and every so often takes part in 10k runs and Half Marathons raising regularly monies for the Aspire charity which helps people with spinal cord injuries to live independently.

Always keep trying to get the balance right between work and life outside work
