Hi, My name is Lilies McGovern, I am a Chiropractor and I graduated from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic in 2012. I am registered with the General Chiropractic Council and a member of the United Chiropractic Association.

In my years of practice I have had the privilege of providing gentle, safe, and effective chiropractic treatment for a wide variety of conditions. I have seen hundreds of patients with conditions ranging from whiplash to scoliosis, sciatica to herniated discs to carpal tunnel syndrome. My favourite part about Chiropractic is getting to meet people from all walks of life from pregnant women to children there’s always something to learn

Aside from chiropractic, I love singing, watching movies and spending sweet time with family and friends.  I look forward to meeting you, ‘educating and empowering you towards a healthy future’. 

Joann McDermott-Pawley
Sports Therapist

Growing up being very sporty I came across many injuries to both teammates and myself and became very interested in rehabilitation and recovery. 

Leading me to follow a route in education by choosing a BTEC National Diploma in Sports and Exercise Science. This is where I was first introduced to Sports Massage, which highlighted the fact that I wanted to be hands on with my work.

After college I studied a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Therapy, here in Luton at the University of Bedfordshire, and graduated in 2009.

I worked as a mobile therapist before being given the opportunity to practice here at Back to Back Clinic in 2015.

I have absolutely loved my time here and treating the variation of clients we see on a day-to-day basis.

Kelly Mitchell
Sports Therapist
Bsc (HONS)

I joined the team at Back to Back in 2008 as a Sports Therapist following my Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Therapy at the University of Luton.

Although our training centered around the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries, most of our day to day work here at Back to Back is centered on the associated aches and pains of working life, we have a wonderful relationship with our patients’ where we can guide and support through injury to better mobility for all, not just the professional athlete.

My time here at Back to Back has taught me to appreciate how hard it is to move when you are in pain, and if we can help just one patient return to normal activity then I feel we have done our job. I enjoy watching people return to physical activity, work or sometimes even just sit down and get up unaided after seeing us and will continue to help as many patients as I can in my time here.

Hi I am Annette. I am excited to be offering Acupuncture at the practice now. Acupuncture is a wonderful relaxing treatment which has a positive effect on muscles and multiple systems of the body, therefore it can be a helpful therapy to manage pain and symptoms associated with many conditions. I have witnessed peoples’ physical and mental wellbeing positively improve after acupuncture sessions.


I am trained to Degree level. I first qualified as a nurse in 2000, and have worked for many years as a Cardiorespiratory Specialist Nurse. I have also worked for several years as a Health Adviser, so together I have over 20 years’ experience with advising on healthy living and helping people manage chronic conditions and return to a fulfilling life after surgery. I have also studied Chinese medicine, Naturopathic Medicine and Medical and Auricular Acupuncture, and I am very passionate about helping people feel better.
I am a warm, caring individual. I also enjoy yoga, hiking and music.
