Frequently asked questions

Is chiropractic right for me?

Chiropractic care can be beneficial for a wide range of conditions. Often it is an acute pain which triggers a patient to seek help - but early intervention can help to prevent a problem such as a minor twinge or bad posture from escalating.

Our initial assessment will determine the treatment that is right for you. If chiropractic care isn't indicated, we'll help to refer you to the most appropriate service for your needs.

Is chiropractic treatment suitable for babies and children?

Yes, it is suitable for all ages.

In babies, it can help to address issues from birth and can improve temperament and sleep patterns.

Children are constantly growing, so keeping them moving well with good alignment will help to support their development and can prevent minor issues developing into bigger health problems in later life. Chiropractic care is also beneficial to the function of the immune system.

What happens in the initial assessment

Our guide will take you through what to expect on your first visit.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing that allows for easy movement.

On the first visit it is helpful if we can see your back. We do have gowns that can be provided for your modesty.

Will I receive treatment on my first visit?

Time permitting, we can usually start treatment towards the end of the initial assessment.

Does chiropractic treatment hurt?

Chiropractic treatment is normally painless. Your chiropractor will guide you through the treatment and ensure that you are comfortable throughout. During your appointment your chiropractor may perform adjustments which cause a pop sound. Whilst this can sound dramatic, its normal.

Following treatment you may experience some short-term discomfort or stiffness while your body adjusts.

Do I need an x-ray?

In most cases patients won't require an x-ray - but your chiropractor may recommend an x-ray or MRI scan to assist as part of our diagnosis.
