Your First Visit
You will be asked for details of your medical history and previous injuries. Your chiropractor will then perform an Orthopaedic and Neurological examination to make a thorough assessment. X-rays may be recommended if visual information is required to confirm diagnosis, these are taken on site (Haverhill & Colchester) and can be done while you wait. Once all the information and analysis is complete, your chiropractor will discuss diagnosis and treatment plan.

Treatment - What to Expect
Your chiropractor will usually perform precise and gentle adjustments of the spine or other joints. You may experience a little stiffness or aching; particularly after your first treatment. Acute, recent 
conditions often respond to treatment very quickly whilst a long-standing or chronic conditions may need up to 6 - 12 treatments or more. The average number of treatments is 6 visits; less if a condition is treated early. Your chiropractor may recommend periodic check-ups to maintain improvement and prevent recurrences.

Your GP and Private Health Cover
Many GPs refer patients to us; in some areas this is available on the NHS.  However, you
do not have to contact your GP in order to make an appointment with a chiropractor. Private health companies will cover the cost of your treatment. If you have private health insurance, please make our receptionist aware on your first visit so that you can be advised of the procedures.

X-Rays While You Wait
We have x-ray facilities on site, so they can be done quickly and efficiently. This assists the chiropractor to make their diagnosis and demonstrate to the patient what may be causing their problem, enabling a discussion on future treatment and care.


For new patients, we offer a FREE CHIROPRACTIC CHECK with a male or female Doctor of Chiropractic to discuss how we can help. Please telephone for literature or to book an appointment.
