What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the world third largest primary healthcare profession after Medicine and Dentistry.

According to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) definition, chiropractic is: “a primary health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on general health”.

Why People See a Chiropractor

Our modern, research driven approach to chiropracti allows our chiropractors to carefully select and utilise the chiropractic treatment and adjunctive physical rehabilitation that will aim to achieve the best possible result for you, in the shortest space of time, at the lowest possible cost, and with minimal disruption to your life.

Whether you’re suffering from acute pain following injury, trauma, surgery etc, or chronic pain, effective treatment is possible. Pain is not a trivial symptom and should not be ignored. Research shows pain is a potent stressor on peoples lives that interferes with normal recovery and functioning. When pain is controlled, patients suffer less, sleep better and have more vitality to enjoy daily activities.

Chiropractic Consultation.

Consultation and Diagnostic Service.

Your First Chiropractic Appointment.

Our Chiropractors begin by taking a thorough clinical history of your complaint, as well as a full past medical history, family history and history of other factors which can influence your complaint.

This will be followed by a comprehensive physical examination by a Chiropractor, consisting of: orthopaedic, neurological, postural, and gait evaluation. It is this thorough approach to examination that assists our chiropractors in establishing factors that may be contributing to the complaint you’re suffering from.

Most patients we see in our Chiropractic Clinic are suitable for Chiropractic care. However, if our chiropractors feel that further testing (i.e Blood tests) or investigative imaging (i.e An MRI scan, CT scan, Ultrasound scan, or X-ray) is required, we can refer you swiftly and efficiently to an appropriate specialist for such investigation.

You may not currently have a complaint, and might be looking to either: prevent future problem, keep fit and well, or optimise your sporting performance. In this case we can look at matters prospectively, seeking to identify factors which could predispose you to future problems in the future, especially if you have a close family member who suffers from such a complaint, or are involved in a sport where such problems commonly occur.


Confidential Clinical Report of Findings.

Your Second Chiropractic Appointment.

Immediately following your Consultation and Diagnostic Service Appointment, your Chiropractor will take time to evaluate the findings of your case, and formulate an appropriate tailored plan of treatment / management of your condition. Thereafter, when returning to the Chiropractic Clinic, we will sit down with you and discuss in full our conclusions. Our Chiropractors will let you know:

A Diagnosis of your complaint: What it is, and what’s causing it.

A Prognosis of your case: How it’s expected to progress, or, how long it will take to get better.

An Outline of Proposed Treatment: Should we deem ourselves suitable for the management of your complaint, we will inform you of:

  • What we can do to help.
  • What you will be able to do, in order to help yourself.
  • What results you can expect.
  • The rate at which you can expect these results.
  • What this result will cost you in time and money. ‘We aim to make all costs involved in the management of your case known to you from the outset.’ Click here to see Our Costs.
  • If we feel that your complaint would be better managed by another clinician, the appropriate referral to that clinician will be made without delay.

Our Modern & Evidence-based Approach to Chiropractic

Our renowned results and clinical outcomes have been achieved by developing a multi-faceted and evidence-based approach.

Pain can, and should be viewed as a global epidemic. It is estimated that 1 in 5 adults (20%) suffer from pain and that another 1 in 10 adults (10%) are diagnosed with chronic pain each year. Pain affects all populations, regardless of age, sex, income, race/ethnicity, and geography. Those who experience pain can experience acute, chronic, or intermittent pain, or a combination of the three.

The etiology of pain is complex, calling for a multidisciplinary approach to managing it. As Chiropractors in Warwickshire, we work along side a number of allied healthcare professionals, such as: Orthopaedic Surgeons, Rheumatologists, Podiatrists, General Practicioners, Physiotherapists, Physchologists, and Radiographers, to provide the most appropriate care for each patient.Pain also has multiple, serious sequelae including but not limited to anxiety and depression, inability to work, and disrupted social relationships. Those living with chronic pain, have on average experienced it for 7-years.

What is the Difference Between Physiotherapy, Osteopathy & Chiropractic?

In our view the main difference is merely… ‘the spelling’. Let us explain…

Each of these professions are essentially conservative (non-surgical) musculoskeletal care professions, and to us, it seems rather silly that we have three separate professions who are essentially doing the same, or at least a very similar thing.

If a Warwickshire Chiropractor, an Osteopath, and a Physiotherapist assess and diagnose a patient effectively, and ask the question‘What’s the very best way that this patients complaint can be addressed?’, they should in theory each be carrying out exactly the same treatment / management. There is an optimum way to treat a patient, and each professional should be basing the care that they offer on the needs of the patient in front of them, and not professional ideology.

We see many patients who have been told that they need to see a Physiotherapist or an Osteopath. Likewise, we work alongside other Physiotherapists and Osteopaths.
