Our Clinicians

Chris Thorpe (BSc DC LRCC)   Chiropractor

Chris grew up right here in Clevedon. His parents owned and ran Old Street Garage (the Esso garage) for 30 years so he only left Clevedon to head over to South Wales to go to the University of Glamorgan. He studied Sports Science and after graduating, he continued on to study at the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic where he graduated in 2006. He started his professional life back here in Clevedon as an associate and when the opportunity arose in 2010, he bought the practice and hasn’t looked back since.

Even though Chris graduated in 2006, he has since spent thousands of pounds on furthering his knowledge in an attempt to ensure that he is able to provide the best level of Chiropractic care he possibly can. This philosophy continues now and will throughout his career. Courses have taken him to both America and Europe as well as the UK.

Sport has featured highly throughout Chris’s life including playing both Rugby and Hockey at University and Hockey for Barons (Clevedon’s mixed hockey team). This allows him to understand the commitments and frustrations of the sports people he treats from the professionals to the weekend warriors. However, Chris enjoys treating a cross section of the community. His youngest patient was approximately 30 hours old and his oldest patient to date was 97 years old so there really is no such thing as being too young or too old to receive a Chiropractic helping hand.

It is Chris’ goal to help raise our community’s health through Wellness care, be it via Chiropractic, Physiotherapy or a combination of both from the team at Complete Health Clinic

Chris is registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and is a member of the United Chiropractic Association (UCA).

Gemma Rogers (BSc CSP AACP)   Physiotherapist

Gemma first became interested in Physiotherapy at 14 years old when she received Physiotherapy herself after sustaining a shoulder injury from playing tennis. This, alongside her fascination of the human body, psychology, love of exercise and passion for helping others inspired her to become a Physiotherapist.

Gemma qualified as a Physiotherapist at UWE Bristol in 2007. During her university years and through her love of tennis she met her husband, Matt, who is a Tennis Coach and Clevedonian. Once Gemma finished university she moved in with Matt, and lived in Clevedon and Portishead for 5 years, working in the NHS for North Somerset Primary Care Trust.

She also carried out private work, notably, running a clinic at Bath University which saw her work with Performance Athletes, Paralympians & Professional Tennis Players. Gemma worked with Strength and Conditioning Coaches to prevent injury and improve performance.


Gemma then returned to her home county of Hampshire to be near her family. Over this 10-year period she worked up the NHS ladder to become a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Team Leader. This meant she led a team of other Physiotherapists, trained students and was involved in service development. She also got married to Matt and had 2 children!

She is interested in many sports. She plays first team tennis and has been Ladies Captain at Lee-on-Solent Tennis club. Her other interests are days out with her young family, cooking, gardening, exploring, keeping fit and reading.

Gemma has a vast amount of experience in assessing and treating day to day aches & pains, injury prevention & rehabilitation, pre & post orthopaedic surgery, pain management and falls prevention & balance, amongst many other ailments!

Gemma provides Physiotherapy, Musculoskeletal Therapy, Acupuncture, One to One Pilates, and sports rehab. This can be provided as standalone treatment or can be complimentary to other therapies.

Her approach is holistic, which means treating the person as a whole, building rapport; taking personal choice, occupation, hobbies, lifestyle & past medical history all into account to design an appropriate treatment plan for each individual.

You might not know why you have pain, or you might not have any pain at all, but feel a loss in mobility, strength, balance, want to have a health check-up or improve sports performance – if this is the case Gemma can provide a thorough assessment and explain her findings to you and ways she can help.

Gemma is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, is a member of The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, and Acupuncture Association of Chartered Physiotherapists.
