After completing a BSc at Newcastle University in 1979 I then went on to study Chiropractic at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth after becoming interested in the profession having suffered a back injury myself.
Founding member of the British Chiropractic Sports Council.
I was the team chiropractor of the Whitley Bay Warrior and Newcastle Vipers Ice hockey team. A highlight of my profession was being asked to join the British ice hockey team at the world championships as their chiropractor in 1989 and 1990.
I use a system of chiropractic called the Sacro occipital technique which I was advanced certified in 1998.

Fellow of the Royal College of Chiropractors
I became a board certified Craniopath in 2001 and have since developed a protocol of my own for disc herniations which I have progressed to teach internationally.
I have an extensive background in the UK and overseas, specialising in spinal disorders and treating the problem using gentle but effective techniques.
Over the years, hundreds, if not thousands, of my patients have experienced a significant improvement in their quality of life following treatment with my approach.
Conditions treated include:
Migraines/headaches of cervical origin
Repetitive Strain Injury
Baby and Infant Care
But there is so much more; from advice on exercise, lifestyle changes and diet, which all aid general well-being.
I injured my back playing hockey when I was 27. (Thirty years ago). Over a period of 18 months I had every treatment the NHS could offer but other than masking the pain with painkillers nothing worked. Luke Ramsay changed my life. It’s really that simple. I had spent 18 months in pain with a constant limp and in just two visits Luke fixed me. I’m now a builder so back injuries are more common but so far I haven’t missed a days work through back pain. And it’s not just me. My wife sees Luke a couple of times a year and my daughter pays him the occasional visit (normally after she’s gone over the handlebars of her bike). Fortunately my son has a decent chair in his room so all the hours spent saving the world from alien invasion isn’t causing him any back pain just yet. But rest assured, if it happens then Luke will be the first port of call.
Luke Ramsey has been treating me for many years, initially for migraine headaches which were frequent and severely effected my quality of life. Luke's treatment, combined with dental work to alter my bite (carried out on Luke's recommendation). have led to almost complete freedom from migraine. This has lead to a huge and long term improvement in my quality of life.
More recently Luke has been treating me for a degenerative arthritic condition which effects my neck. Again regular treatments from Luke enable me to have an excellent quality of life. Without the treatments I suffer from nerve pain and numbness in my hands. Luke has always provided an excellent service. He listens carefully to my symptoms and approaches his adjustments thoughtfully and carefully using his expert knowledge to good effect. Luke has a holistic approach which I think is invaluable.
I have no hesitation in recommending him wholeheartedly.
Luke was initially recommended to me via my GP who advised, if I was going to see a chiropractor (as my condition was deteriorating ) then Luke Ramsey was the only one to see in the North East – he was right, there is little point in seeing anyone else. Prior to seeing Luke I had seen multiple doctors and specialists. Luke provided a diagnosis within the first consultation (later confirmed by hospital MRI) and treatment that was beneficial immediately. I cannot recommend him enough
Luke Ramsay has been treating me for chronic problems resulting from my permanent and painful disability over the course of more than 25 years. He was recommended to me back then by many people in my area, and I’d recommend him to anyone. He has done wonders keeping my limited mobility as good as it can be, for as long as possible.
My disability can result in chronic back trouble with flare-ups of incapacitating pain, and whenever I’ve needed to see him, I’ve experienced considerable improvement in just one or two visits, as well as him treating my other ongoing problems as far as they can be treated. He has always gone the extra mile, such as seeing me at short notice in emergencies and giving advice from his knowledge and research, including referring me to an orthotics expert which is more than the hospitals ever did. He is caring and respectful in his manner to patients, and always explains what he’s doing and why, as well as giving very useful advice, exercises etc for maintaining my own best mobility and comfort at home between visits.
