About West Chiropractic

At West Chiropractic we provide a service that enables our clients to live a life that is pain free, and promotes their individual goals and dreams; however big or small. One person’s Marathon may be another person’s walk to the shops.

Please look below for our most frequently asked questions.

Below are questions that new and existing patients ask, if you have any questions that are not listed below, please contact West Chiropractic here.

Before your first visit, our receptionist will confirm your appointment time 24 hours beforehand and will make sure you have directions and a place to park. When you arrive, we will ask you to fill out a health history form and then you will see Dr Jeremy for a consultation. The consultation will involve a medical history, physical examination, posture assessment and X-rays if clinically necessary.

Once we have completed your initial consultation it will take 2 hours to process the results and propose a treatment plan.  The chiropractic assistant will invite you back at a time that is suitable for you either later on in the day or week. At the second visit Dr Jeremy will go over your results, show you your x-rays (if taken) and outline the plan to help achieve your goals.

The treatments don’t hurt, however following the adjustment there maybe some muscles and ligaments that will need to adapt due to your new posture. This can cause some stiffness in certain areas, this is normal and we advise you to pop an ice pack on the area for 10 minutes after your adjustment and drink plenty of water.

The cracking or popping noise when you receive an adjustment is gas being released from the joints. This is normal.

The first consultation costs £50, this is a full spinal assessment which involves muscle and nerve testing, posture analysis, orthopaedic testing and X-rays (£60)  if clinically necessary.

An adjustment is £50 if you pay as you go. However, we do have discount options available depending on what works best for you.

Monday – Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday and Sunday – closed

Everybody is different and has different responses. We start very easy and explain everything that we will do on the first adjustment clearly before we perform it. Some people may feel looser more flexible afterwards, some people nothing after the first one and others may feel stiffer in the areas we have worked on. Each response is normal when we move the body around, it’s important to remember if the problem has been there for a while it will take more than one adjustment to respond.

This depends on the chronicity of the condition – whether it has been weeks, months or years will play a big part. The severity of the condition is also an important factor that your Chiropractor will be able to advise on. In the report the Chiropractor will outline the problem and tell you based off the examination how long it should typically take to feel better.

We understand that everyone is busy and has a life outside of West Chiropractic, but we ask you to please let us know as soon as possible if you can’t make an appointment and we will do our best to re-schedule this for you. We are very flexible and will always try to keep you on schedule.
