What happens after I book my appointment?

On booking your appointment you will be sent an email confirming the date and time and some electronic forms attached for completion that you can access by clicking a series of links on the booking message. Some of the forms require an electronic signature, which you can do by using your fingertip/stylus on a smart phone/tablet; or by using the mouse/track pad on a PC or laptop.

The day before your appointment you will be emailed a reminder, which will contain our Covid-19 questionnaire. It is essential that this is completed before you arrive for your appointment, so please be sure to check your email.

What happens when I arrive?

On arrival at the clinic, please put on your face mask/covering before you enter the building and then come in and find a seat in our reception – this is the first door on your right. There is no need to knock/ring the door bell. Our Chiropractor will take you to one of our treatment rooms when they are ready. The forms you have completed and your medical background will be discussed.

We will then discuss what has brought you to the clinic, asking questions to obtain as many details as possible. Following this, a physical examination will take place. This will include joint range of motion testing, joint and muscle palpation, orthopaedic and neurological testing. Ideally, we do this with some clothing removed, and we have gowns available to wear. However, we understand that not everyone is comfortable with this, and remaining fully clothed is fine.

If appropriate you will then receive a diagnosis and treatment plan from your Chiropractor. If your case is particularly complex, you may need to return to the practice for your initial consultation to be completed.

An initial consultation will last around 40 minutes. Subsequent treatments will last approximately 20 minutes.

What should I wear?

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. For men, we ask that you wear or bring shorts. For women, shorts and a vest top are ideal. Please avoid wearing skinny jeans, or any clothing that is tight.

What is involved in the treatment?

Any treatment given is dependent on your presenting complaint, general health status and medication, and varies from patient to patient.

Treatment may include, but is not limited to:

  • Chiropractic Adjustment
  • Joint Mobilisations
  • Soft Tissue Massage
  • Western Medical Acupuncture
  • Kinesio or Athletic Taping
  • Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage (IASTM)
  • Soft Tissue Release
  • Stretches
  • Home Exercises

Our treatment modalities are offered as part of a care plan – we do not offer massage or Western acupuncture as stand-alone treatments.

Do I need to consult my GP first?

No. As primary healthcare practitioners who are registered with the General Chiropractic Council, our Chiropractors are able to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions without the need for a GP referral. We will refer you to your GP if your problem is outwith our scope of practice.
