The first appointment takes approximately 60 minutes, where a full case history is taken along with a physical assessment before discussing a care plan and commencing treatment if appropriate (please wear a face mask to your appointment, Covid-19 protocols are still in place. Visit the covid-19 page for more information). First appointment cost is £72
The case history includes a detailed account of current and past symptoms while the physical assessment includes orthopaedic and neurological testing, to help identify the condition. Where possible, treatment is through clothing therefore please wear/ bring loose fitting garments, shorts or leggins for example. However patients may be asked to remove outer clothing and gowns are available if required.
The working diagnosis will be discussed and if appropriate and agreeable, a treatment plan and chiropractic treatment will follow. In the event further tests are needed or if referrals are required, communication with your GP may be needed.
Further visits cost £56.00 and last approximately 30-35 minutes when progress and response are closely monitored. The amount of treatments needed will vary depending on the condition as previously mentioned, but this will be constantly assessed and discussed at each visit when Maurice will be happy to answer any questions or queries. Purely as a guide, an average of 2-6 treatments may be needed but this will be discussed after examination on the first visit. With constant monitoring, the time between visits typically increase as treatment progresses and some individuals frequently continue to come every few months as a preventative measure after their condition has resolved.
If you are unsure whether your condition can be treated by chiropractic care, or you just want to check out the clinic and practitioner, you are welcome to come for a 10 minute assessment called a “Spine Check”. Although it won’t be possible to make a diagnosis in this time, it may be possible to give treatment advice or subsequent referral. The £15 cost of this visit will be deducted from the initial treatment cost if treatment is possible and you decide to proceed.
