If this is your first visit to our Chiropractic Clinic
we would like to welcome you and thank you for selecting
us to care for your spinal health. The clinic in the centre
of St Helens always aspires to provide high quality healthcare
in a warm, caring and friendly atmosphere.
Chiropractic diagnosis identifies the underlying cause of
your pain and endeavours to correct it, thus providing a
long-term solution. The body is a very adaptable structure
and has a remarkable capacity to compensate for spinal problems.
Because of this, pain is often the last symptom to appear.
Chiropractors can also uncover underlying spinal dysfunction
before it becomes painful and help you to be the best that
you can be through chiropractic care.
Whether you are looking for pain relief or would improve
your health potential and prevent future problems, chiropractic
is a natural, non-invasive, safe and effective way of reaching
Our aim is to move away from crisis management
and towards preventative chiropractic care. We believe people
should enjoy optimum health for a lifetime. We also
believe that the prevention of disease is less costly and
more comfortable and enjoyable for all concerned. We want
our patients to learn how to maintain their spinal health,
be free from nerve interference and keep the reoccurrence
of pain and symptoms to a minimum.
Chiropractors use a natural and drugless approach to health.
We help problems in the nerve, joint and muscular systems.
Chiropractors look for areas in your spine where the joints
may be jammed and pressing or pinching
on nerves. These areas are called SUBLUXATIONS.
The Chiropractic manipulation
Chiropractors correct subluxations with gentle, specific
manipulations which we call an adjustment. Sometimes
when a spinal joint is adjusted there is a slight click
or popping sound as the joint separates and
dissolved gas in the fluid forms a small bubble. The adjustment

We will do everything in our power to run to our appointment
times, avoiding unnecessary waiting. However, sometimes
unforeseen circumstances may arise. We ask that you are
on time for your appointment. If you do not have an appointment,
or are late for your appointment, we will attempt to see
you as soon as a time is available.
Caring for your spine
Excellent spinal health can be achieved in partnership with
us. We ask you to co-operate in keeping your appointments
and following instructions for home\work care. We will often
recommend an exercise programme tailored to your individual
needs and demonstrated to you in our rehabilitation suite.
This home exercise plan is an excellent tool for you to
maintain core strength and keep your spine healthy.
Maintenance care programme
Depending on your needs you will be recalled at periodic
intervals for a spinal check-up. Our approach and emphasis
is on maintenance care. We actively encourage you to think
prevention rather than crisis care.
We are happy to talk with prospective patients to answer
any questions they may have about chiropractic before they
decide to begin treatment.
Should you feel unsure if
chiropractic can help you we do provide a free screening
service. In this 15 minute appointment you have the chance
to discuss your problem with the Chiropractor who will then
advise whether Chiropractic can help you. This appointment
is free of charge but no treatment is carried out at this
