"In total honesty the Chiro work has been the most beneficial to me and I also include the Core Strength exercises in this statement. I have suffered many lower leg injuries in the past and my right knee has always been a problem since my 2010 operation. However this year my body has felt so strong through the exercises and realignment of the body through the chiro work. Every time I attended the clinic with what I believed was an injury likely to keep me on the sidelines for a period of time you just attended to the problem, relevant muscles or bones then I walked out feeling totally fine. It was amazing at times through the season particularly prior to the Ballbuster where i feared serious problems had occurred to my right knee but you gave up much of your time to see me 4 times prior to the race which amazingly got me to the start line and then to my surprise i finished 4th with the knee clearing up its problems within days of the race. I also think my most recent visit was one of the best for me after you learnt a few new skills from your course in Lausanne, Switzerland. You managed to clear up a few long term niggles I had been carrying and for a week after my legs and body felt great in training.
Initially i didnt totally believe in all the information or expert advice you were giving but was willing to give it a try as part of the project. Now i have faith in everything you suggest and think your enthusiasm plus positivity is a real bonus. I have been converted to moving away from trainers with lots of support to minimalistic racing flats which i use all the time. Your expert knowledge and suggestions have convinced me this is best for the body and i am now running faster than ever at the age of 35. I've started to work on your lastest advice after the Lausanne visit and feel this new running technique which provide additional benefit.
For sports teams or sports people out there i would certainly endorse your skills as a Chiro from what i have experienced. You could also make a real difference to the performance of sports people who are willing to move away from comfort zones and try different ideas.
I appreciate your interest in triathlon and hope now you have started to train and compete yourself, this gives you inside knowledge of what athletes actually go through physically. I really hope you progress with your own achievements in triathlon as i have already seen how determind you are to do well in something you are interested in.
Finally, i wish you were available to travel with us to worlds championship in Vegas or Kona! I feel this year a minor knee flare up again, did probably cost me a good few places and time in Vegas.
Thank you for everything in 2012 Mika. I felt very privilaged to have received that level of support. Its certainly made me a better triathlete and with more time receiving your support feel i can continue my progression."

"I love your enthusiasm and positivity in everything that you do. After meeting up with you I always come away thinking that everything is ok. When I have come to you with what I believe has been a serious problem you have always put my mind at ease and stopped me worrying unnecessarily. In the last year, I have watched your knowledge and love of triathlon grow and grow, even having a go yourself! I can only think that with you doing the sport next year, your understanding of what is required as an athlete will improve greatly. You have really helped strengthen my body and make me understand my body more. I think that if any sports team was ever looking for a chiropractor they should look no further than you."

"I have been working with Dr Mika Janhunen of Shepperton Chirorpactic Clinic for four years. During this time he has not only been able to help me overcome various niggling injuries and to enjoy better health, but has been able to improve the performance of a number of my golf coaching clients as well. His detailed knowledge of the human body and the complexity of the golf swing movement pattern is virtually unrivalled in terms of results that I have ever seen. I will continue to refer my players to see Mika, and would encourage anyone to do the same."

"I have been attending Shepperton Chiropractic Clinic for some while for ‘maintenance’ on my back. Before Shepperton opened I attended a Chiropractor in Walton who manipulated my back into being pain-free after years and years of pain and discomfort following an injury. Shepperton keep me pain-free. I then mentioned to Mika that I had been suffering a frozen shoulder for a few years. I hadn’t thought to mention it as I assumed it was probably from over-use when I was training for the Mexico Olympic Games in 1968 where I represented Great Britain in Canoeing, but after a few weeks of manipulation and massage it, too, is pain free. It has made a terrific different to my life being able to move easily and painlessly."

"As a professional health and fitness consultant my body and its athletic function are key to my ability to do my job. Following a motorbike accident towards the end of last year, I developed a muscular imbalance as my body compensated for the weaknesses that were present on the ‘impact’ side of my body. Like most fitness professionals I have been for numerous sports massage and physiotherapy treatments to keep my body functioning at an optimum level and during my rehabilitation following the accident I did the same. The relief however was temporary.
It took me some time to opt for chiropractic treatment and I’m not sure why exactly but I had always been nervous of it. That was before meeting Mika and receiving treatment from him. During our consultation he quickly put me at ease and pinpointed my lower back pain, plus my hip, knee and ankle immobility. Following a number of treatments my pain started to subside and mobility returned. I am now able to workout without any knee support, which is fantastic!
A big thank you to Mika for offering effective, holistic treatment, without which, I would not have got back to my normal routine as quickly."

"Thank you so much. I was in so much pain last week I couldn't imagine that I would feel this much better in just 7 days. What a relief, I'm so gratefull for your help."

"After doing an 10K Mens Health Run and feeling the pain of 10ft jumps I contacted Mika at the Shepperton Chiropractic Clinic, I asked him some questions first as I have always thought Chiropractors just crack necks and straightened backs, not here, Mika is trained in sports injuries which I have and we are on a path to get me straighter, stretchier and over time, hopefully faster. It is good to get sound advice on all injuries and know that I am in good hands to help make my body last longer

"I am a full-time snowboarder / instructor / coach and after many years on a board I have had my fair share of injuries, long and short term. I was rcommended to Mika Janhunen at Shepperton Chiropractic Clinic to see if he could help. My first appointment was back in 2009 after a new injury. Mika diagnosed the problem areas are began to fix it immediately. After a few appointments I was good to go and back to full fitness. Mika gave me the after care that I needed to keep my body in full working order and now see him every now and then to make sure everything is ok."

"Mika was recommended to me. I was a bit reluctant but persuaded to go as I have been suffering wfrom headaches and migraines for more than 40 years. Mika has helped greatly to reduce them by more than half. Although I still get a few, they are not as bad or frequent. I am very pleased with the way the treatment is progressing and would recommend the clinic to friends and family as all the staff are friendly and professional."
"I frist went to Mika About 2 months ago. I could not walk straight line or very far. I was also in pain as I have had two knee replacements. After about 3 weeks I can now walk upright and in a straight line. Also a lot of pain relief. I cannot recommend this practice enouhg."
"Friendly helpful advice. Treatment explained well. Has made a huge difference to my posture. I now play better golf! Relaxed environment. Would recommend the clinic to all friends and family."
" I was experiencing a lot of pain when I first started treatment - now I can not believe the relief I now have - Mika was so helpful with lots of advice which I obviously took on board.
"I had very bad lower back problems for a few years from playing football regularly about 3 times per week and was recommended Shepperton Chiropractic Clinic. I gave it a try and was very happy with how quickly I felt the results from Mika's sessions. Within a month I could really feel the difference and now 9 months on I have very little if no back issues at all. I still see Mika once every 2 - 3 months and highly recommend his clinic."
"Mika always listens well to what I say and helps me understand what he is doing and why. My back is now so much better and I can't thank him enoughfor all his kindness. I would also like to say how kind and helpful the reception staff are. They always work to accommodate me - with a smile and respect. Thank you."
"Since my back problem occurred a couple of months ago, Mika has worked very hard (but gently) at putting it back in order. Even after my first session I experienced relief from the pain. Subsequent sessions have improved not only my posture but core muscle strength, and ultimately, no pain. I would recommend this clinic to anyone with back / joint problems as the care and attention to detail has been second to none."
"Very friendly atmosphere. Helpful and freindly staff. Good treatment. Very beneficial. "
"Always polite receptionists. My treatment is personal and respectful and comfortable. My concerns are listened to and acted upon. Mika always remembers me and my family and talks about them. All my family come here and enjoy the same good service. Thank you."
"I was suffering terribly with my back for a number of years as a result of an injury at work (heavy lifting). I didn't seem to find any relief, even after consulting a number of various practitioners, but coming to Shepperton Chiropractic Clinic was the best thing I have done in my life - It changed my life. The thoroughness of the history and examination, the meticulous assessment on each treatment, and the effective treatments combined with exercises and stretches have proved the cure I was looking for all along."
"I am a keen recreational cyclist and was suffering with pains in the legs after cycling. Dr. Mika was able to sort out the problem in my pelvis, and help my legs. Now I enjoy riding my bike even more."
