Chiropractic Session

What To Expect

The Consultation and Examination Process

The format for a new client of ours is as follows:

1. On arrival you will be asked to fill in a short health questionnaire before being called through to see your chiropractor – please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to complete this

2. A full health history is then taken looking into the past and present issues that may be related to the problem you are presenting with

3. We will perform numerous orthopaedic and chiropractic tests to obtain vital information about the function of your joints and muscles

4. If we determine that you need x-rays or scans you will referred for them at this point


The Report Process

After your first visit your Chiropractor will correlate all the exam findings with the details of your health history, together with any x-rays or scans if taken, and create a bespoke treatment programme to suit your needs. We will then:

1. Explain clearly and visually the findings from the tests and x-rays

2. Explain what the problem is, what it will take to correct the problem, how long it will take and costs involved

3. An individual plan is recommended and you decide what course of action best suits your needs

4. Give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your problem, or the treatment to be provided

To book your consultation and examination just call the clinic you wish to be seen at and we will arrange it for you.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to call the clinics where we will be more than happy to talk to you. If you specifically wish to speak with the chiropractor call with your questions and we will arrange for them to call you back as soon as possible.

Treatment Phases

How you choose to use chiropractic is up to you and we are here to look after you whatever your choice.


Acute Phase

This is the first stage of the treatment when the patient is in pain or discomfort. At this stage you may need to get treated frequently and treatment is aimed at providing pain relief as quickly as possible. Initial care at this stage can last from a few days to several weeks, depending on the problem.


Stabilisation/Rehabilitation Phase

When the joints and muscles start to function better you will start with rehabilitation. You will get treated less frequently and given exercises in order to stabilise and strengthen the spine. Here the main aim is to maintain joint mobility and increase muscle strength


Maintenance/Wellness Phase

When the chiropractor is happy that the spine is functioning optimally check-ups are recommended in order to maintain the improvements which you have achieved and to help prevent further issues. Potential problems can be detected and corrected before you start to experience pain and disability again. This is equivalent to having your dental check-ups and you car serviced.

After being in chronic pain for 8 years, spending most of these years going round in circles with the NHS, I was recommended to go and see Tim. I have been to many chiropractors, massage therapists & physios before, but none of them got results with me like Tim did. Within a few weeks the issues that have been troubling my back pain for many years were finally being fixed. Tim’s Knowledge of the human body is second to none and he figured out things about my body that no others including back specialist doctors could. Whilst working with Tim, I could finally achieve my passion to take up powerlifting and in 2016 came 3rd in Britain in my category, lifting weights I never thought possible.

– Matthew Nicholson

I started with problems in my back fourteen years ago … with in two sessions with Tim I could feel major improvement. My wife has also been helped by Tim with her headaches and shoulder tightness over the years. Attending regularly is a ‘must’ for my wife and I.

– Dermot Fitzmaurice

Following recommendations from friends I went to see Tim relating to two issues – sudden back spasms and severe cramps when cycling. A number of months down the line I have had no back spasms and have done some fairly serious cycling with no muscle cramps. An additional but significant bonus was the stepped improvements in my performance. I was skeptical but am now totally converted.

– Adrian Hackney

Quite frankly, Tim has made me cry with relief because of the positive results I’ve experienced.

– Elaine Horan

Tim and Paul are two of the best clinicians I have ever had the pleasure of working with. You will not find a higher standard of Chiropractic and Physiotherapy service. If you ever require treatment, rehabilitation or any of the elite services they provide then you will be totally satisfied with the outcome.

– Andy Barr MSc MCSP SRP (New York Knicks Performance Specialist)

I consulted Tim for longstanding neck and hip problems upon my husbands recommendation. The discomfort I was experiencing had begun to affect my sporting activity and had failed to respond to other interventions. The treatment he has given me is of an exceptionally high standard and improved my complaint quickly. He is extremely skilled and knowledgeable and I would not hesitate to consult him again and recommend him to all friends and family. Thanks again Tim.
