Is there parking at the clinics?

Both of our clinics have dedicated patient parking outside of the main entrance with disabled access.

 

 

Is chiropractic safe during pregnancy?

Absolutely. Many people consult a chiropractor during pregnancy to help with their overall health and wellbeing, not just for aches and pains (50-75% of pregnant patients report aches and pains according to research). 84% of patients saw relief through regular chiropractic adjustments. A retrospective review showed women who seek chiropractic care through their pregnancy gestation with their first baby found on average 25% shorter labour times, and those who have multiple babies showed 31% shorter labour times. Chiropractic may help with alignment which could help with the engagement of baby towards the end of pregnancy. Adjustments for pregnant patients are tailored to the individual cases. All adjustments are safe for mum and baby and the beds can be manipulated to accommodate an ever expanding bump.

 

 

Can babies and children receive care?

It is perfectly safe for babies and children to be adjusted. Care is tailored to every individual, whether that person is less than 1 years old or over 80!

 

 

Is it okay to bring my children with me to an appointment?

At the clinics, we are proud to have created such a family-friendly environment. We welcome children and have a selection of toys, games and books for them to enjoy. Although, we do ask that you take your children into the room with you as our insurance states that they cannot be left unsupervised in the reception area.

 

 

Are you registered with private health schemes?

All major private health schemes (other than BUPA) are covered by our services. This may change in the future though so please ask who we’re currently registered with. Always check with your insurance provider if you require a referral from your doctor before attending an appointment as all schemes are different.

 

 

Is there an age limit to receive chiropractic care?

We welcome patients of all ages. We see people from birth right through to the older generation (our oldest patient is 93!) We offer free consultations and first adjustment to under 16s. We alter our care techniques to each case which are safe and effective care for all. We ask that our under 16s are accompanied by an adult.

 

 

Do you sell healthcare products?

At the clinic, we carefully select a range of products that compliment care. We carry stocks of health-related items such as Biofreeze, chia seeds, hot and cold therapy packs, omega 3 oil, vitamin D tablets and honey. These are hand selected by our team so our clinic community receive the best benefits. Where possible, we buy from local healthcare businesses – our honey is carefully selected and award winning in the area!

 

 

What is the difference between chiropractic care and physiotherapy?

Although both are safe and effective versions of manual therapy, both have very different philosophy and techniques so cannot directly be compared. Chiropractic’s origins are rooted in optimising your body’s functional neurology (after all, your nervous system controls every aspect of your body). This is done by helping support natural movement in the body and spine and stimulating areas of your nervous system. Chiropractic does not treat any ailments but supports the body’s natural ability to function as a whole. Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic and physiotherapy compliment each other. This is evident in major sports teams who have dedicated chiropractors and physiotherapists on hand.

 

 

Is there disabled access to the clinic?

Both our clinics are suitable for wheelchair users. Hollings Lane Clinic has a specialist disability access bathroom, but support and aids are available at Goose Lane Clinic on request.

 

 

What do I need to wear for an adjustment?

There are no specific clothes you need to wear to receive an adjustment. Looser fitting clothes are more appropriate but just wear what is comfortable for you. Please bear in mind that you’ll be asked to move around on the bench.

 

 

Will an adjustment hurt?

Adjustments are safe and generally do not cause pain. If you have areas tender to touch or in a very acute phase of inflammation, adjustments can be uncomfortable but will get easier as normal function returns to your body. We will always tailor our choices of adjustment to your case. If you have any concerns, please speak to a member of the team.

 

 

Can chiropractic care help with specific conditions?

Chiropractic is designed to help you as a whole. Talk to our clinicians about how your condition may be affecting your health.

 

 

Do all the clinicians work at both clinics?

All our clinicians’ timetables rotate around both clinics to give maximum opportunities for patients to see them.
