Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Chiropractic can play a vital part in injury prevention, pain relief, healing, rehabilitation and improving sports performance. Below are a few of the most common conditions treated at Complete Health:
Spinal problems – back pain, sciatica, slipped disc, stiff/painful neck and referred arm and leg pain.
Joint problems – although there is no cure for arthritis, chiropractic can help to reduce symptoms. such as reducing the pain and discomfort and increasing the range of motion in the joint.
Sports injuries – Sprains and strains injuries to muscles, ligaments & tendons.
Numbness, pins and needles
A Chiropractor is trained to treat the whole body by correcting and improving the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, without the use of drugs or medication.
Chiropractors may assess patients through clinical examination, diagnostic imaging and other interventions to determine whether chiropractic treatment is appropriate. Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.
Your Chiropractor can use a wide range of skills including spinal manipulation & mobilization, dry needling, stretches and rehabilitation exercises.

First Visit: Examination
Your examination will consist of Posture and joint assessments as well as neurological tests

Next we’ll schedule your follow up visits at your earliest convenience.

Second Visit: Review of Findings / First Treatment
The chiropractor will explain what is wrong, what can or cannot be done and what you should expect. Then the most appropriate treatment plan for your condition will be outlined. By this time all of your questions should be answered to your satisfaction. Of course, we will also answer any other questions that you may have so that you gain a full understanding of your condition and how chiropractic treatment can help. (Please note that if you require a written report then there will be a charge of £45).
Your First Treatment
The Review of Findings is free of charge and usually lasts 20-30 minute. If you decide to commence treatment and have your first adjustment at this point, then this will be charged at the usual treatment rate of £35.
Our friendly reception staff will then advise you about payment methods and the available plans that offer great savings.

Your regular treatment visits will normally be 10-15 minutes long.
