What to expect on your first visit

Initial Chiropractic Consultation

What to expect from your initial consultation with our Chiropractors Liz and Nick

  What should I do to prepare for my first visit?

Because of the nature of the initial examination it is important that you shower or bath and put on fairly lose clean clothing. We will mostly examine you fully clothed and sometimes just lift tops up to see your back or lift trousers up to see your knees for example. Occasionally we may ask the guys to change into shorts and ladies to change into gowns.

  What will happen when I attend for my first visit?

When you arrive, we will ask you to fill in a short form about your health, medication, hobbies/sports/occupation or any operations or accidents you have had in the past and any treatment you have had.

  What will happen during the first consultation?

First a detailed case history of your symptoms will be noted on a special set of forms we have devised.

You will then be asked to come into the examination room to be assessed. We look at your posture and give you a physical examination (fully clothed) which will include some tests/assessments which will help us identify what is causing your pain or discomfort. If we feel that x-rays are necessary, we will request them through your doctor. We will then explain what is wrong and what we can do to help and give you a diagnosis and treatment plan needed to sort out the problem.

If you are happy to go ahead and have your first treatment, we will take a photograph to record your standing resting posture. You will be fully clothed. Your first treatment will then be given and we will take another photograph so you can see the changes made immediately. The instructions are the same for each photograph, "breath, breath out and let your body slump." You will be amazed at the difference. Your body will not slump! You will be standing more upright, without any effort on your part. Most people experience a significant reduction in their pain after their first session and a significant increase in their ability to move. See our success stories page for some great examples.

  How many treatments will I need?

For the majority of patients, they can be pain free within six weeks, with many obtaining immediate relief after their first treatment.

The treatment is aimed at restoring correct postural alignment of the spine and extremities, thus reducing the strain, injury and pain.

  Why should you come to us?

No one else in Gloucestershire does this! No one else takes before and after photographs each visit to show you the changes made in your postural alignment. You can feel the difference immediately and visibly see the difference for yourself.

We are very proud of what we do and the vast numbers of people we help. We are so confident that we will be able to help you, we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your initial consultation, just let us know within 7 days and we will refund your money.

Many of our patients give their permission to display their "before and after" photographs in the clinic, so do head over to our “Success stories” page so you get a chance to see them and get a sense of what we can do for you. Read our patients’ stories, we have helped so many people I’m sure you will find someone of similar age and similar symptoms to yourself.

  Will the treatment be painful?

The majority of patients will experience no pain whatsoever. Some may experience no more than occasional short-lived discomfort which usually goes by the end of the session.

  What complaints can be treated at the clinic?

A wide range of problems can be treated by chiropractic, far more than most people realise. In addition to back and neck pain, other problems such as headaches and migraines, sports injuries, trapped nerves (e.g. sciatica) and injuries to the foot, ankle, shoulder, elbow and wrist can also be effectively treated. It is worth pointing out that problems initially diagnosed as arthritic have been found to involve a treatable muscle-joint problem.

  I know someone who has a back problem, but I am not sure if you could help.

If you have friends or family who are suffering from any of the conditions listed above, do tell them about the clinic. We will aim to explain exactly what the problem is and what we can do to put it right.
