What will happen on my first consultation?

Your first consultation will start with a thorough medical history. This may include questions regarding past accidents, illnesses, hospitalisations, medication you are currently taking or lifestyle issues. 

We will then conduct a physical examination of the problematic area in order to appreciate  what the possible cause of the problem could be..  Your diagnosis and recommended care will then be explained to you so that you can understand your problem and therefore help yourself to a fuller recovery. We are always available for any questions and to give you ongoing advice. All your information is handled with the strictest confidentiality.

Are there any adverse effects after  treatment?

You may find that you are sore for 24-48 hours after a treatment. A small percentage of patients may find that treatment may aggravate problems or exacerbate an old injury that is not functioning / moving very well. If symptoms do not improve after 24-48 hours or get much worse, please phone the practice.  Don't wait until the next appointment. We will advise you or bring your appointment forward if necessary.

How Many Treatments will I require?

The number of treatments often depends on how long you have had the problem and how badly it has escalated and can be dependant on your general health and well being at the time.  Two or three treatments may be sufficient to sort out many complaints, but each individual case will differ as a result, hence it is always best to try and treat any recent injuries you have as soon as possible.

Cancellation of an Appointment

A cancellation fee of  £25.00 will be charged for missed appointments or appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. 

What should I wear?

We would ask that if you are suffering from acute back or neck pain, to please wear clothes that you can easily remove. Most treatments will require that you remove clothing around the problematic area.
