Your Initial Consultation
At your first appointment, I will assess your symptoms in a consultation to determine if chiropractic treatment is suitable and what techniques are likely to help.
Your first appointment will involve a comprehensive review of your health history, a chiropractic examination, postural and spinal assessments.
I will take the time to fully understand your symptoms and how they are impacting on your life in order to ensure I accurately diagnose your condition and deliver the best possible treatment and care for you.
The majority of back and neck pain involves more than one anatomical structure and will be caused by more than one factor.
I will create a treatment plan for you that addresses all elements of your complaint, giving you the best chance of a successful outcome.
I use a range of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility, including hands-on manipulation of the spine.
As well as manual treatment, I am able to offer a package of care which includes advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes.
Some of these different techniques will include:
Spinal manipulation – using hands to apply force to muscles, bones and joints in and around the spine.
Soft tissue therapy – manipulation and work to the soft supporting tissue around the spinal joints.
Nutritional advice – advice and guidance to supplement your treatment.
Rehabilitation therapy – The things you can do in your own time to help support your on-going treatment.
