Why Choose Us
Patients refer to most of our clients, and so many know how we help people recover, some may not know how we are different and how these differences benefit your care.
Not knowing is not 'excellent care' and so we have detailed how we work below:
Many of our clients have not found a solution using essential GP support. This GP support is:
- Prescribed medication (4-6 weeks)
- Hands-on-therapy (physiotherapy, where they see you and touch you).
- Hands-off-therapy (where you get a phone interview from a physio and are sent a generic exercise prescription in email/ post). The second option is new but getting more common in the NHS.
If you are in this situation, our approach to health can help.
We believe in being proactive and holistic, and that maintenance is better than repair.
"If you treat your car like this, the annual MOT and services, then surely your body should be addressed similarly?"
We call it 4 Core Postural Treatment Approach, and we implement it in three stages of care.
Our objective is to relieve your pain, before reconditioning and optimising your body. The aim is for your body to be restored to health, and to remain in a state of optimal performance, transforming suffering into ‘TOTAL HEALTH’.
Stage 1: Relief
This is a cyclical process of ‘assess, treat, and review’ that happens every few sessions.
Your chiropractor will work on your symptoms to create a relief.
There is an average number of sessions, but you may take more or less depending on your condition and how life stresses your condition's healing.
Your practitioner will give you a prognosis of how long this will take at the consultation.
The initial objective is to identify the cause of your symptoms. The Chiropractor will begin by undertaking a thorough history and examination to diagnose your problem. They will explain the diagnosis to you and discuss the range of available treatment options.
Once your problem has been diagnosed, the focus shifts towards the procedure. Your chiropractor will write a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. The longer you have had symptoms, the longer it may take to improve. Your chiropractor will advise you of likely recovery time and how to minimise the chances of the problem reoccurring.
The best results are achieved by sticking to your treatment plan and listening to the advice from your chiropractor.
You will be provided with a printed copy of your plan to take away with you.
A small number of patients may experience discomfort after their treatment normally likened to going to the gym. As some rehab, exercises and motion are given back to a body this sensation is to be expected.
For someone who has been suffering for a long time, there is often anxiety attached to this possible sensation. And we believe in clarifying this to abate the anxiety. The reaction is an adaption by the body to change it may only last a few hours or days and is typically only felt by 10% of clients
If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your chiropractor.
This completes the first stage. Your chiropractor may suggest some helpful tips for maintenance and prevention of further problems. At this point, it is your decision whether to consider a more proactive approach.
Stage 2: Recondition
Stage 3: Optimisation
The focus has now switched to maintenance - we don't want your symptoms to come back!
Phase 3 aims to monitor your condition, maintain your body’s optimal function, prevent any setbacks and control any symptoms effectively if they arise.
