1. I Am Not Sure If A Chiropractor Can Help With My Condition. What Should I Do?

If you’re unsure if chiropractic treatment can help with your condition, you may wish to arrange a free, no-obligation discussion with us. This may be over the telephone (01280 731157) or at the practice BOOK A DISCOVERY SESSION.

If you decide to go ahead with treatment, your chiropractor will assess your condition during your first visit (the initial assessment) before explaining possible treatment recommendations.

You don’t have to agree to the treatment the chiropractor recommends then and there. Just let the us know if you would like more time before deciding. 


2. Will I get cracked?


Contrary to what you may have seen on a TikTok videos we believe that often the most profound changes can come when our body is shown how to heal, rather than be told where to go. By enhancing your body's awareness of itself and specifically your spine. You can develop new strategies for healing, adapting to stress, and experiencing wellness.

Yes sometimes a structural adjustment (a crack) is required but this only forms part of what we do. 

Our philosophy centers on the recognition that most chronic, long-term complaints are multifaceted. In other words, it's uncommon for a problem to originate solely from one isolated source; rather, it typically involves a combination of mechanical, chemical, and emotional factors. To achieve lasting relief, it is imperative to consider and address all these layers comprehensively.

3. Is chiropractic care safe?

In the words of the New Zealand Government’s Inquiry, chiropractic care is “remarkably safe.” Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. It is the result of a conservative approach to health that avoids invasive procedures or drugs.

4. Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

In most cases, not at all. In fact most people find having an adjustment very relaxing. With some adjustments you may sometimes feel or hear popping sound from the spinal joints. This is simply caused by a gas release from the joint as spinal movement is restored.

We sometimes use a hand held instrument to adjust the spine and commonly pelvic blocks to re-align the body. Special techniques are used for adjusting infants and children. Whatever the technique you chiropractor will use skill, not force or strength, to conduct a safe, effective adjustment.

5. Do I have to remove my clothes?

Not normaly and if required a gown will be provided, however we do ask you wear loose fitting clothing, the kind of clothing you would wear for a walk or to the gym.
