Will I need an x-ray?
Only if there is a valid, clinical reason for doing so. For example, we might require more information in order to diagnose your condition properly. We have on site X-ray facilities if this is necessary.
How do Chiropractors become qualified?
To become a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC), there is a lengthy and rigorous course of training that must first be completed. It involves education to masters degree level, which, over the space of five years entails some 4,200 hours of study. For those graduates who wish to become members of the BCA (British Chiropractic Association), a further year of supervised training is necessary.
Similarly, in order to be able to re-register each year with the GCC (General Chiropractic Council), Doctors of Chiropractic must undertake a programme of continual professional development (CPD). Our Chiropractors regularly complete hundreds of hours per year, as well as help to teach, train and mentor other Chiropractors in the field.
In short, you will always be in the safest of hands when you come to us for Chiropractic treatment.
How quickly can I get an appointment?
We understand that it’s hard to wait when you’re in pain, so we’ll strive to get an appointment that’s convenient for you as soon as possible. We aim to see you within 24 to 48 hours of calling for your first appointment.
How long does a usual course of treatment take?
This can vary depending to the type of injury and how long you have had it. After an examination, your Chiropractor will be able to discuss with you what is required for your individual problem. Most cases will need several visits in order to see improvements.
Do I need to be referred to see a Chiropractor?
Many of our patients are recommended, and referred by friends, family or medical professionals. You do not need a direct referral, all you need to do is contact the clinic directly and book your appointment. If, upon diagnosis, we feel that your condition is better suited to treatment from another healthcare professional, we will refer you as appropriate.
If you plan to seek Chiropractic treatment using a health insurance policy do be sure to double-check with your health insurance company whether or not a GP referral is necessary.
What is the difference between Chiropractic and osteopathy?
Chiropractic treatment places greater emphasis on the spine and the nervous system than osteopathy, which focuses more on the circulatory system.
