All things chiropractic!
Chiropractic care is a mode of treatment involving spinal manipulation that can help in the recovery of a number of conditions for example:
- Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
- Joint Pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis (OA), as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise.
- Generalised aches and pains
- Mechanical neck pain
- Migraine prevention
- Minor sports injuries and tensions
- Shoulder complaints

An initial appointment can last 60-90 mins. During that time we will discuss your presenting symptoms and your medical history. I will also carry out a range of orthopaedic, neurological and muscular tests. This information will allow me to decide whether chiropractic care is a suitable treatment modality for you. If its a yes, I will then discuss a suitable treatment plan with you. During and following the treatment, you will also be given advice on how to look after yourself once you leave the clinic.
There will also be an opportunity for us to discuss lifestyle changes that may be or help to you and ways to prevent further occurrence of your presenting symptoms if possible. You will also be given every opportunity to ask questions, as its important that you feel completely informed about the treatment you are receiving.
If however I do not think chiropractic care is the best treatment option for you, I will support you in referring you to a more suitable treatment modality or to your GP if required.
I use a variety of 'tools' within my chiropractic care, that can (with your permission) also include soft tissue work and western medical acupuncture.
The number of treatments required can vary greatly depending on a number of factors including the length of time you have had the presenting symptoms, the severity of the presenting symptoms, your age, your general fitness, how well you follow the advice or make any necessary lifestyle changes.
We recommend a follow up appointment 1 week following your initial consultation which will last approx 30-45 mins.
