The first visit normally lasts around 75 minutes. You will be asked to complete paperwork. Information on your medical history, activity levels, life stressors etc., helps to build a picture of your health and possible influences on your current problem. This also ensures that there are no contraindications to treatment. I will then discuss your present condition in depth. I will conduct an examination to assess the mobility of your spine and the area of pain and use relevant orthopaedic tests to establish the cause of the problem. I will then discuss my findings and how I think you can best be helped.
If you are taking any medication please bring the details to the consultation.
What Do I Wear?
I usually suggest patients wear light clothing such as shorts or thin jogging pants. I also have modesty gowns available.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This will depend on the condition and the response of each patient but as a guide, expect between 4 and 6 sessions. A plan of treatment will be discussed with you and your progress will be assessed on each visit.
What if I Have Mobility Problems?
Treatment is mostly carried out with the patient lying down but we have lots of ways to accommodate those who are less mobile for whatever reason.
Both of the clinics are on the ground floor.
