How We Treat
We use safe, gentle and effective treatments for neuromuscular conditions including chiropractic adjustments, Western acupuncture and rehabilitation techniques that will be tailored to your individual needs to achieve long term pain relief, improved mobility and better posture, for a better quality of life.
Your first visit. What to expect:
Enter through the main front door. Please wait in the waiting area where you will be given a questionnaire and consent form to fill out. We will run through more questions for a history on your health. Your first visit will take about 45 minutes.
Your chiropractor will take details of your complaint. You will also be asked about your medical history and that of your direct relatives (grandparents, parents, siblings and children). This will enable a full picture of your health to be determined.
An examination looking at orthopaedic and neurological functions will then be carried out and if you are required to remove clothing, you will be given the privacy to do this. You will never be asked to remove any underwear.
The findings are then discussed and explained so you have a good understanding of the findings and chiropractic care required. Once your diagnosis has been explained to you, a bespoke programme of treatment will be recommended.
Depending on the individual case, chiropractic treatment and adjustments will begin. The reasons for this will be outlined but will be based mainly on the length of time you have had your problem, the severity of your complaint, your age and general health state. Other treatment options may also be discussed.
Following this, if you are happy to proceed, a course of treatment tailored to your individual needs can be discussed and then begin with your permission. You are always able to ask any questions throughout the appointment. Questions from you are always encouraged.
