Chiropractic care

Before your chiropractic care can begin, it is important that we assess whether chiropractic will be beneficial to you and to get a clear picture of your health and wellbeing.

We do this in a 2-hour initial assessment appointment. This involves full history taking, a physical assessment, orthopaedic and neurological testing, and a first treatment.

After you book your initial assessment, we will email you a mini questionnaire to give a brief overview of your condition before your appointment. We can take history details over the phone if you are short on time – just give us a call to arrange this.

Before we begin your first treatment, we will give you a report of findings, in which we will explain the results of the testing. We will give you a working diagnosis and discuss what may be causing your condition. Finally we discuss how we can approach ‘fixing’ it. This allows you to make an informed decision over whether you want to start care or not.  

At each further appointment, we will assess your progress, and discuss how you feel about your care, and how to proceed from there.

Sometimes it may be necessary to refer out to other health care professionals if we feel your case is not suitable for chiropractic care or requires further investigation.

Spine checks

If you are uncertain whether chiropractic care is for you, feel free to contact us to discuss your condition, or book a spine check!

Spine checks are a free, 15 minute assessment where we will discuss your condition. In the assessment we do some brief testing to get an idea of what may be causing the condition, and whether chiropractic care will be suitable for you.

Massage

As well as chiropractic care, we also provide Swedish Body Massage, Indian Head Massage, and Hot Stones Massage. These treatments are beneficial for relaxation, pain relief, stress relief. They are also said to have health benefits such as improving circulation and reducing anxiety and depression.

Swedish body massage is a soothing full body massage that aims to reduce stress and tension from the muscles. It is also said to improve circulation, lymph drainage, and relieve muscular pain. Swedish body massage uses a variety of techniques to work the soft tissues and muscles, promoting relaxation.

Indian head massage is a massage of the upper back, shoulders, neck, scalp and face. This aims to reduce stress and tension and promote relaxation. Head massage is said to help reduce neck pain and headaches, improve sleep, and may even promote hair growth.

Hot stones massage is similar to Swedish body massage, with the addition of heated basalt stones. The stones are placed around the body to warm tight muscles and enable a deeper massage. The stones are then used as an extension of the hands to massage the muscles, relieving pain and tension and improving circulation. It is said to be effective in relieving pain caused by chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
