When you visit us for the first time, you will complete a personal details form. The Chiropractor will then take a thorough medical history including past and present difficulties. Any details you give us will be in the strictest confidence.


In most cases you will need to remove your outer clothing for the duration of physical examination (an examination gown will be provided for you to wear). A thorough physical examination will concentrate particularly on the joints, nerves and muscles of your body.

It may also be necessary to examine other areas, such as the lungs, heart and abdomen. Based on the information from the history and examination the chiropractor will then decide whether chiropractic treatment is appropriate and if any additional investigations are necessary before treatment can begin. These may include X-rays, MRI and CT scans and urine or blood tests. In some cases it may be necessary to contact your GP, which your chiropractor will only do with your permission.


Report of findings
Following review of all your information the chiropractor will give you a detailed report of findings. The underlying cause of your symptoms, what we can do about it, how long it will take, how much treatment is required and how much will it cost. If appropriate lifestyle changes may be discussed and in most cases simple home exercises will be prescribed. A treatment plan will be tailored to suit your specific needs and any questions or concerns you may have will be answered.

Chiropractic adjustment is the application of precise force in accurate direction on specific joint that is out of alignment or "fixated" (not moving properly). Adjustments will help the bones to realign, joints and nerves to regain their normal function and relieve pain and irritation. There are many ways to manipulate the spine and we will use the ones most suitable for your age, size and problem. After chiropractic treatment, many patients report feeling that they have more energy and generally feel healthier.
