Chiropractic care helps you move and exercise

Welcome to Active Family Chiropractic!

At Active Family Chiropractic, we aim to provide the local community of Deddington, Banbury and surrounding villages with a centre for excellence that delivers safe and effective Chiropractic care of the highest quality to both families as a whole and individuals. Our goal is to help restore your body’s movement and keep it moving as well as it can do so that you can keep doing the things you love.

Most people think Chiropractic is just for back and neck pain, but it is so much more! Chiropractic is about health, movement and helping to restore the body to wellness, allowing it to heal and function to the best of its ability. We focus on the spine and pelvis as it houses and protects the nervous system (spinal cord) which connects the messages from your brain to your body. Nothing happens in your body without the brain saying so. Our job as Chiropractors is to help this communication happen as effectively as possible. For more information click here.

Without the excellent care I have had from Mel, I would have been bed bound with severe SPD at 24 weeks pregnant. The progress, support and commitment in keeping me mobile has been incredible and I am so very grateful for your care and positive outlook. A million thank you's!


Dr Melanie is a great Chiropractor looking after entire families. She is really professional and experienced. Pregnancy process under her care is soo much easier. Highly recommending to anyone.

Melanie is a fantastic chiropractor and will go above and beyond to help anyone who needs it. I can highly recommend her 🙂


Dr Melanie has provided Chiropractic holiday cover for Balance Chiropractic centre on several occasions. Her professionalism and expertise is fantastic and the clients love her. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Melanie for clients of all ages.


Dr Melanie is great! A very thorough examination. The explanation of what the problem is and the process of correcting it was extremely helpful. I would recommend Dr Melanie to anyone looking for a very caring chiropractor.


My family and I feel 100% safe in Mel’s hands. She is knowledgeable, caring, and has a great sense of humour too! She is a wonderful chiropractor and we would highly recommend her.

Mel was able to get to source of my problems after one visit, and recommends a course of exercises and adjustments that keep the problem in check.

Having suffered with aches and pains for several years thinking I just had to ‘put up with it’ as part of the ageing process, a friend recommended I contact Melanie at Ashcroft therapy Centre and I’m glad I did.  After a consult and several weeks of adjustments I am pain free.  Not only that but I’ve noticed simple acts such as walking, sitting down and getting out of bed have become easier as well. Many thanks.
