Momentum Chiropractic Clinics are based in Newton Abbot and Taunton. They were started in 2010 by principle Chiropractor Matthew Wright. Both clinics have onsite parking and are based on the ground floor. Patient care is paramount and we strive to provide our patients with the latest up to date testing and clinical procedures in a friendly yet caring environment. This combination allows us to produce outstanding results. We work closely with patients to manage their needs, whether it is to get out of pain or to achieve optimal health and wellbeing.
I graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in Bournemouth in 2005 I initially started working in Nottingham and Sheffield before setting up my own clinic back at home, I and have been working here in Newton Abbot since 2010.
I was drawn to Chiropractic after playing football with a school friend and seeing him injure his back with an ill-advised overhead kick, I was with him at the chiropractic clinic and it was there where I picked up the prospectus for the Chiropractic college after I saw the difference in him immediately after his first session.
Over the years I have worked as a chiropractor I have obviously gained a lot of experience and continuously expand my ‘toolbox’ of treatment modalities to support my chiropractic care and further my knowledge. I still get amazed at some of the results I see and I love what I do – I feel very lucky and privileged to have made a career out of helping people.
My personal motivation in practice is to help people of all ages return to what they love to do and to improve the aspects of their life that are detrimental to their overall health.
Outside of clinic work, I enjoy socialising with friends, playing golf and going for walks around Devon. One of my big passions is watching Exeter Chiefs where I can be found in the East Terrace on matchdays.
I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council and a Member of the British Chiropractic Association and The European Academy of Chiropractic.

I completed my Level 3 sports massage therapist qualification at South Devon College in August 2023. My professional journey has taken me from working with private clients to joining the team at Gara Rock Spa in East Portalmouth. Joining Momentum Clinic has been a significant step forward in my career, aligning with my aspirations within the field.
My passion for sports therapy is deeply rooted in my love for Brazilian jiu-jitsu. After countless nights of rigorous training and witnessing the physical strain it can impose on muscles and joints, I became intrigued by the absence of remedial therapies for recovery among fellow practitioners. This motivated me to raise the standard of motion and well-being for gym members and athletes alike.
My overarching goal is to enhance the quality of life for clients, irrespective of their body type or specific needs, whether it’s addressing sports injuries, realigning the body, supporting rehabilitation, or aiding individuals with underlying health conditions. My dedication is to help everyone achieve their optimal physical condition.
Beyond my professional life, I actively engage in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, bouldering, and stand-up paddleboarding. I also cherish moments spent with friends and family and, on occasion, indulge my passion for scuba diving during overseas adventures.
In my practice, I apply a range of sports massage techniques, tailored to individual requirements. These may include specialized approaches such as myofascial release and joint mobilization to aid clients in their journey to recovery and improved motion.
