Free 15 Minute Consultation

If you are unsure about whether Chiropractic is the right treatment for you then you can come and have a free 15 minute consultation with one of our Chiropractors.


Initial Consultation £22

Your Initial Consultation will last approximately 30 minutes and is your time to explain to your Chiropractor what is wrong and what your goals are to achieving optimum health.  Your Chiropractor will take a full case history of your complaint and then perform a complete Chiropractic examination. Using orthopaedic and neurological tests, the Chiropractor will assess the function of your spine, joints, nerves and muscles. This will be done in conjunction with the information you provided on the New Patient Form which includes your present and past medical history.


Report of Findings £32

Following your new patient consultation we study all the findings we have gathered and compile your Report of Findings.  In this appointment we go through what we have found; what we can do to help you; how many sessions it will take and how much it will cost.


Paediatric Initial Consultation £22

A Paediatric Consultation is suitable for any child between the ages of 0-16 years. It will last approximately 30 minutes and is time for you, the parent to explain your concerns to the Chiropractor about your child’s health status. The Chiropractor will take a full case history of your child in conjunction with the New Patient Form that you completed. A full examination will also take place assessing your child’s spine, joints, nerves and muscles, which will be essentially testing the neurological and orthopaedic function of their body.

What happens at my first visit?

Your Chiropractor will listen as you describe your problem. You will then generally undergo a detailed examination including orthopaedic and neurological testing. X-rays may be taken where necessary. Your Chiropractor will then outline a treatment plan appropriate to your condition.

Is chiropractic safe?

Yes. Our Chiropractors are primary contact healthcare professionals and as such your safety is our primary concern. In common with medical practitioners and dentists, all chiropractors are registered by law under the Chiropractor s Act 1994 and the title ‘Chiropractor ‘ is protected under this legislation. The profession is statutorily regulated through the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and it is illegal to practice as a Chiropractor without being registered with the GCC. It takes a minimum of four years full time education to qualify as a Chiropractor.

Is chiropractic just for lower back pain?

NO! Research has shown that Chiropractic care is beneficial to those suffering with:

Back and Neck pain
Headaches and Migraines,
Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist pain
Frozen shoulder
Tennis elbow
Knee, Hip, Ankle and Foot pain
Hip and Knee arthritis
Plantar fasciatis
Sports injuries
A variety of muscle injuries and conditions

Is chiropractic treatment safe after surgery?

Chiropractic is remarkably safe when treatment is carried out by a properly qualified practitioner. Your Chiropractor is trained to recognise conditions which require referral elsewhere, and after assessing individual circumstances can treat you even after surgery.
