Whilst working as a Dental Surgeon in Hertfordshire, Hilton developed a keen interest in Chiropractic. Having experienced treatment himself, he felt this was where his future lay so he returned to full time education and graduated from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic.

During the years that he has been in clinical practice Hilton has studied and developed a wide variety of chiropractic techniques. This has enabled him to develop an effective conservative approach to treating the more elderly members of the population which in turn has enhanced his reputation in the local community.

Having played cricket at West Suffolk County U21 level, hockey for Newcastle Medicals and having a love of most sports (especially football and rugby), Hilton has a keen interest in treating sport aches and pains. Although Hilton no longer practices as a Dentist he still has an interest in treating jaw related problems.  

David Taylor, PhD, DC


Like many other people David came to the profession as a patient. He was so impressed by the treatment and health care, that he was inspired to change profession from Physics (PhD). David was drawn to the mix of science and hands on approach.

After graduation from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, he continued with postgraduate studies and qualified as an Advanced Practitioner of Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT) which he now helps to teach. This gentle systems approach, which includes cranial work, is comprehensive in its management of chiropractic problems including chronic cases, and is suitable for all ages including babies and the elderly, and the relief of discomfort during pregnancy.

David is a member of the Royal College of Chiropractors Faculties of Paediatrics and Craniopathy. He is also a member of SOTO-Europe (www.sotoeurope.org).

I first visited the Eastbourne Chiropractor Clinic suffering with lower back. With David Taylor’s help and expertise he put me on the road to recovery and I am now able to go about my daily life without the difficulties and discomfort I’d previously been experiencing. The practice staff are welcoming, warm and friendly so the moment you go in they put you at ease.

So impressed with the Covid safety measures that have been put in place. It seems they only have one patient in the clinic at any one time and that made me feel extremely comfortable and safe.

Lovely staff. Warm, calm and healing atmosphere, and amazing depth of expertise in the skilled, gentle treatment I’ve received. My frozen shoulder pain disappeared after a single session, but even more importantly to me I feel my whole person is carefully assessed each I go, and I am given individually tailored and effective help and support.
