What to Expect From Your First Treatment

I will first assess your general health, previous conditions and existing symptoms.

I will then conduct, with your permission, a physical examination to locate the problem, during which I will make adjustments using the light, dextrous techniques associated with McTimoney. In some cases I may need to ask you to remove some clothing and I always provide privacy and a gown, but please do tell me if you feel uncomfortable about undressing.

If at any point I discover or suspect a condition that requires further medical intervention I will refer you to your local GP for further tests.

Normally your first visit will last between 60 and 90 minutes

A Partnership Together

Before we start the treatment program I will explain clearly to you:

·         The results of your examination

·         The proposed treatment plan

·         The benefits and any significant risks associated with your condition and the proposed treatment plan

How Many Sessions Will You Need

Most people find between two and six sessions sufficient to address straightforward problems.  The number and frequency of treatments will depend on a number of factors including:

·         Age

·         Extent of Injury

·         Duration of injury

·         General fitness

·         Stress (muscle tension & stress on your nervous system)

·         Posture

How Will You Feel After Treatment

During a course of chiropractic care you can expect to feel physical changes as the body realigns.  These may include stiffness or tiredness, particularly after your first session. I will give you advice on aftercare and any necessary lifestyle changes to help you get the most of your care.  As ever, it is important that you talk to me if you feel worried about anything during or after your treatment.
