Harbour Chiropractic is owned and run by husband and wife team Iain Crombie and Hannah Carthew. It is the realisation of a dream they have both had for a long time. As they both grew up in the South West (Iain in North Devon and Hannah in North Cornwall) they had always wanted to move back to this part of the world and have always loved Topsham, Exeter and the surrounding area. Following their wedding in June 2016 they started looking for premises in the area. When the current clinic became available they couldn’t let the opportunity pass them by and Harbour Chiropractic was born.

Having spent a combined total of 18 years working in multiple practices around the South West, Hannah and Iain were able to take the best bits of all these and create a completely patient centred ethos. Harbour Chiropractic is a family run clinic with a warm, welcoming atmosphere with the sole aim of helping patients to reach their health goals as quickly as possible: No gimmicks, no sales tactics, just patient centred care. As a team we all hate not being able to do the things we love and we want you to have as little time off as possible!

Iain Crombie MChiro ICCSP FRCC(Sport)

Having always been interested in healthcare as a profession Iain first encountered chiropractic following a succession of rugby injuries in his late teens. The successful treatment of those injuries with chiropractic, and the discovery that chiropractors treat a huge variation of musculo-skeletal conditions not limited to the spine, convinced him to apply to study at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC). Following graduation from a full time Masters degree in 2012, Iain was lucky enough to start working in one of the South-West’s top sports chiropractic practices in Bristol.

Hannah Carthew MChiro DC

I knew from an early age that I wanted to help people for a living and working in health care was the natural choice. I found chiropractic when my Dad was treated by a chiropractor many years ago. When I saw how much chiropractic was able to help him get over a debilitating episode of low back pain, I knew that was what I wanted to do myself. I have never looked back and really enjoy my job and love to meet and help people of all ages.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors (especially by the sea!) and when time allows I love to travel.

James Westlake BSc MCSP

Helping other people live their lives to the fullest is at the centre of what I do. After my first degree in sports science, I decided to return to university to study Physiotherapy and focus on a profession that takes a holistic approach to helping people.

I truly enjoy the dynamic nature of my job and have had the privilege of helping a wide variety of people with an array of conditions; from work related back pain to sports related injuries, I enjoy learning what is important to the patient and working together to achieve their rehabilitation goals.

One of the most rewarding things in life is to help someone get better and that’s why I love my job so much. I offer a wide range of massage techniques to give my patients the best results. I really like to study the nature of the problem and follow a treatment plan to resolve it. Having worked in professional football for 6 years and the general public for 3, I have gained a wealth of experience in treating many different people with a vast variety of conditions.
