Meet the Chiropractors

Marc Martineau
Marc is the senior Chiropractor at the Exmouth Chiropractic Clinic. He graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 1986 but chiropractic is in his blood as his father, Yvan, now retired, is also a chiropractor and started the original clinic in Exeter back in 1963.

Over the years Marc has continued to study a wide variety of chiropractic techniques and with his extensive clinical experience is able to professionally deal with most conditions that patients present with at the clinic. Marc is married to Alison who is the founder of Exe Pilates which she runs from the dedicated pilates studio which forms part of the Exmouth Chiropractic Clinic.

When not working Marc enjoys many outdoor pursuits especially sailing, skiing and diving.


Dave Evans
Dave graduated in 2003 from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. Originally from Torquay, he has previously practiced in Dorset, Hampshire and Plymouth.

He was originally inspired to study chiropractic after witnessing his father and friends use chiropractic care to make 100% recoveries from chronic spinal injuries when all other attempts of curing them had failed.

He has enjoyed putting his knowledge into practice helping people of all ages from two weeks to 92 years old for a variety of complaints. Over the years he has developed a technique which is adaptable for each individual whether they are babies, pregnant mums, athletes, middle aged or older people. Using the simple principles of chiropractic, namely caring for each individual's frame and removing obstructions to nerve flow within that frame. His aim is to improve the healing, performance and health of every person who seeks his care.

Dave has a strong interest in health, culture, the outdoors and sport, especially windsurfing.


Mike Richards
Mike is a graduate of the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic. He first became interested in chiropractic when he was treated for one, of many, rugby injuries. Mike says

"I remember this new guy at our rugby club, who everyone had been raving about, so I went to see him. I wondered why he was looking at my back and neck when it was my knee that hurt, but I went along with it, and when I got off the bench, I couldn't believe it; I felt great! Of course, I understand the science behind chiropractic these days and can apply it myself and there's nothing better than passing on that feeling to my patients."

Mike is a keen rugby player and therefore has a professional interest in sports injuries "I can really relate to athletes who just want to play again". However, Mike also enjoys treating patients with all kinds of aliments, young or old, using a simple philosophy: find the problem and fix it. So as well as sport injuries Mike is experienced in treating back pain, neck pain, headaches and joint and muscle pain and according to him, "the exciting part is playing my role within such a successful practice!"

Outside of the chiropractic Mike’s biggest achievements are rugby related notably winning the County Championship Shield at Twickenham with Dorset & Wiltshire in 2010 and winning the Southern Counties league title with Oakmeadians in the 2008-9 season. He has strong links with local rugby clubs and can often be found running around a cold, wet pitch on Saturday afternoons.
