Once your initial consultation and examination are complete and where diagnosis shows that your condition can benefit from a course of Chiropractic treatment, this will be explained to you .
The number of treatments you will need depends on your particular condition. Some general examples are; * 3 to 6 treatments for a simple case of low back pain that you have had for only a short period of time.
* 6 to 12 treatments for a long standing condition. Follow up sessions at regular intervals may be necessary to maintain improvement.
Treatment takes the form of gentle, specific manipulations to the individual joints of the spine. Professional advice on bending, lifting, and any other preventative precautions you should take will be given.
You will also be advised on posture, postural aids and excercise.
Payment should be made at the time of treatment. Most private insurance schemes including PPP and BUPA cover the cost of Chiropractic treatment with G.P. or occasionally Specialist referral, the patient should check with their healthcare provider before treatment begins.
