What Chiropractors Do
Chiropractors are concerned with the framework of bones and muscles that support the body (the ‘musculoskeletal system’). Many problems of the musculoskeletal system can be caused, for example, by accidents, stress, lack of exercise and poor posture. When dysfunction does occur, pain can quickly develop quickly.
A chiropractor’s first job is to find out what is wrong, we are able to do this because we understand how the body is supposed to move and function. I will also check for signs of any serious conditions for which you must visit your GP or a hospital.
I am a firm believer in taking charge of your own health and I will encourage you to take part in regular exercise and help you make healthier lifestyle choices.
Your first visit allows me to get to know you and your overall state of health. I start by compiling a detailed case history, including questions about your previous medical history, not just your presenting complaint.
A thorough examination is then performed and this allows me to ascertain what treatments will be suitable for you.
You will receive a report of findings, during which I encourage you to ask questions. This will explain the results of the consultation and approximately how long you can expect a course of treatment to take.
I then tailor a personal home rehabilitation program suited to your needs.
Treatments may include;
Joint manipulation and mobilisations
Soft tissue massage and stretching techniques

Your treatment will be specific to your presenting problem. No two people are the same, and neither are two treatment plans. Every patient is encouraged to take an active part in their care with the home exercise program.
Whether you are in pain or not, my aim is to continue to provide fast and efficient Chiropractic care and to promote a healthy lifestyle.
You do not require a referral from your Doctor to attend a consultation and all your details are kept confidential. Some patients like a report sent to their GP for their medical records and sometimes it is required to inform them of any important issues identified during examination, or to refer you to their care for tests or imaging i.e., X-rays/scans. This would only be done with your explicit consent.
