Back Pain

Research has shown that most of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives. For some of us, this will go on to become a chronic debilitating condition. Dr Wen is an expert at treating back pain.

Neck pain

Injury and postural problems are the most common causes of neck pain. Other causes include trauma, stress...or simply falling asleep in an awkward position! Dr Wen can make the pain go away.

Shoulder Pain

Taking a tablet or rubbing in some anti-inflammatory cream isn't enough. We see many patients with shoulder pain and they all feel better after seeing Dr Wen. Make an appointment and get treated today.


With many headaches originating from the structures of the neck, experienced chiropractor Dr Wen is able to identify and relieve headaches behind the eyes, on the top of the head, or behind the ears.

About Dr Wen Oates and AlgarveChiro

Dr Wen studied and trained at Europe's premier Chiropractic College, the Anglo European College of Chiropractic in Bournemouth, England, graduating with a Master's Degree and Merit. She therefore knows more about your bones, joints, ligaments and muscles than almost any other health practitioner you can mention. Dr Wen was owner and Principal Chiropractor at highly successful clinics in Poole, England and here in Lagos, Portugal. After spending some time setting up a new chiropractic treatment centre in Gibraltar, she has now returned to Lagos and Portimão and you can find her at Centro Médico on Travessa Nossa Senhora da Conceição, not far from the Aqua Shopping Centre.

She also has a smaller chiropractic treatment centre at her home in Lagos.

If you're looking for a chiropractic clinic in Lagos or Portimão with a gentle, qualified, experienced and trusted English-speaking female chiropractor to take away your pain and get you moving properly again, then look no further than AlgarveChiro's Dr Wen Oates.

Mostly, it's because chiropractors are real doctors and we know what we're doing!

We've studied for more than four years to know more about your spine, joints and muscles than anybody else.

We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain and leg pain. In fact, ANY musculoskeletal pain - if it involves a bone or a muscle, chiropractic or tuina care can help. We have also been successful in treating patients with

  • sciatica
  • arthritis
  • fibromyalgia
  • sleep disorders

We treat people of all ages and from all walks of life. If you sit in our Waiting Room, you're likely to hear many different accents...we see patients from the UK, Spain, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Italy and the US, all looking for the best chiropractor in Portimão and Lagos.

Many are ex-pats living here in the Algarve permanently. Others are holidaymakers coming to Portugal for a well-earned break, only to put their necks and backs out on a cramped flight or sleeping in a strange bed.

And all of them have found the best chiropractic clinic in the Algarve.

Will Chiropractic or Chinese Tuina Help Me?

Probably. Chiropractic and Tuina treatment involves safe, gentle and specific manipulation and mobilisation techniques that free joints and restore 'normal' motion. Once mobility is restored, aches and pains are significantly reduced, muscles and ligaments relax and blood flow is increased to the affected areas


Golfers usually come to us in Lagos struggling with lower back or shoulder pain...or the dreaded Golfer's Elbow! Dr Wen always gets them back on the course and into the 19th quickly!


Most of the sailors that come to see us have back pain and struggle to move...trying to fix engines and rudders by manouvering into small spaces is the main reason for seeing Dr Wen.


Again, it's back pain that's the main culprit. Hip, knee and elbow pain are also problem areas, which Dr Wen can help relieve or get rid of altogether.

Retired Expats

Most visit Dr Wen for monthly 'maintenance'...once the original complaint has been treated, they come back regularly to keep joints and muscles moving properly.


Most struggle in with back or neck pain after a cramped flight or sleeping in a strange position on an uncomfortable bed.


Restaurant, hotel, office and shop workers are our main visitors, with most of them suffering from back or shoulder pain...but Dr Wen has them back at work in no time!
