Question What will happen at my consultation?
Answer
You will be asked to fill in a short form about your medical history and you will then be asked some appropriate questions about the problem you are experiencing. It will then be necessary for you to get undressed down to your underwear so that an examination can be conducted and treatment can be started if appropriate.
Question Will the treatment be suitable for me?
Answer
If for any reason I believe that my modes of treatment would be unsuitable, then I may ask you to visit your Doctor.
Question How many treatments will I need?
Answer
This depends on the type of Injury/Condition you have and can vary considerably. As a guide 3 to 4 treatments might be necessary. In some cases regular maintenance treatments can help to prevent reoccurrence of the presenting complaint and help to sustain relief from pain.
Question How soon do I need to get treatment?
Answer
Treatment is exceptionally effective if the condition is treated within the first six weeks of the injury. The longer that you leave the problem the longer it might take to resolve. Early action is important, but treatment can also be effective for chronic pain and longstanding problems.
