The consultation is not any different from an Osteopath or Physiotherapist, and some therapist asks you strip to underwear - we don't. But it does help to wear single layers and patients of the Sports Injury Clinic particularly hip and shoulder patients might want to bring vest and shorts.
Chiropractic is a government registered profession in UK since 1992 and comes with extremely high standards of both education and safety.

"The purpose of a first visit is diagnosing! After this process it is about informing you about your condition and disscussing why your problem might have developed. – Simple!"
We might need added analysis before we continue. We want to makes sure your diagnosis is exact! This means you may be referred to MRI scan or X-ray (this is done in-house in our radiology suite).
After we have established whats causing the problem (diagnosis), we can then progress to explaining a treatment plan (what treatments feel like, how we expect you to handle sessions, how quickly is your condition likely to respond and answer any questions).
After this, you can start your journey to recovery using our four core treatment method (read more about the four core stability method we use)
