Looking for a chiropractor in Cardiff?
The Llandaff Clinic, formerly Llandaff Chiropractic Clinic, has been firmly established in Llandaff North, Cardiff since 1997. Outgrowing our original premises in Station Road we acquired the old Belle Vue Doctors Surgery, which underwent extensive renovations to accommodate a variety of different therapies. When we moved premises in August 2011, we had built up a clinic with over 6000 registered patients. We are now a multi-disciplinary clinic, with full disability access, baby changing facilities and ground floor treatment rooms offering a safe private enviroment.
In January 2014, we became the first chiropractic clinic in Cardiff and one of only 130 clinics nationwide to be awarded the prestigious PPQM (Patient Partnership Quality Mark) from the Royal College of Chiropractors as a sign of excellence in meeting patient expectations. This ensures that all patients receive care of the highest standard from all our practitioners and staff. We have just received the award again for 2017-19 ensuring that we are maintaining these high standards.
