Professional:Shop Front at Back In Action

We started Back In Action with the aim to provide the people of the Tewkesbury area (North Gloucestershire, South Worcestershire) with an holistic approach to their health care. We do this with a genuinely integrated, multidisciplinary approach, using the treatment modalities of chiropractic manipulation, mobilisation, sports massage, remedial massage, dry needling (acupuncture with a western bent), electrotherapy, aromatherapy, activator technique and soft tissue work backed up with a strong emphasis on patient education, physical rehabilitation.

With our concern for the environment, we use only recycled paper, and as little of it as we can. Aidan Barry & Alison RouxWe source all our products from as ethical a provider as we can find, taking the recycled or organic options wherever possible.

We are always trying to build relationships with other medical professionals in the area (physiotherapists, doctors, dentists, pilates teachers and other complementary providers), in an attempt to further integrate each patient's health care, to the benefit of their wellbeing.

For the medium-term future we aim to increase our office space, to allow a treatment room each; with each room tailored to the needs of the individual. With our shared interest in sports injuries, we are actively seeking to cultivate connections with various local sports clubs.

Aidan Barry, Tewkesbury's Chiropractor 


Aidan’s prime interests away from chiropractic revolve around rugby, having been bitten by the bug in New Zealand aged 12. Being small for his age he spent his childhood on the side-lines rather than pitch, but found a natural home at scrum half about 5 years later. Now his playing days are behind him, he still follows from the comfort of the sofa and stands, supporting his beloved Bath (and paying the price), even in Tewkesbury.
His other interests are dominated by the books of Pratchett, Cornwell and GRRMartin; and being keen but incompetent at DIY and gardening.

Alison Roux, Tewkesbury's Clinical Massage TherapistAlison’s interests away from work are mostly based around arts and craft, mostly self-taught. She is often to be found attending knit and natter meets, spinning fleece into yarn. Consequently, there is an increasing collection of yarns filling the spare room to Aidan’s dismay, and cats’ delight. She also loves trying her hand at new things such as pyrography or book binding and finds crafting in general very relaxing.
Her other interest relates to making natural herbal / aromatherapy products for her own use. She is quite passionate about what goes into her cosmetics and gets a real thrill when trying new recipes.

"If the only tool you have is a hammer; you tend to see every problem as a nail"

(Abraham Maslow)

I went to Back in Action after it was recommended to me on social media. I had awful lower back pain which is now completely gone. Aidan and Alison are professional, make you feel at ease and are also incredibly knowledgeable about what they do. They also always ensure that you are comfortable and happy with the treatment during appointments. Many thanks and I would highly recommend to others.
