Consultation and Diagnostic Service.

Your First Stratford upon Avon Chiropractic Appointment.

Our Stratford upon Avon 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 Stratford upon Avon 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 Stratford upon Avon 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.

Our Modern & Evidence-based Approach to Chiropractic In Stratford upon Avon.

Our Stratford upon Avon Chiropractors Ask The Same Question With Each And Every Patient…

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 Stratford upon Avon, 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 Stratford upon Avon?

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 Stratford upon Avon 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.

It’s our pleasure to look after a range of patients from the local areas of Stratford upon Avon, Warwick, Solihull, Redditch, Leamington Spa, Birmingham, Wootton Wawen, Claverdon, Knowle, Dorridge, Shirley, Hatton, Lapworth, and Hockey Heath etc.

We are also proud to attract professional sports men and women / athletes, and likewise patients with more chronic and complex problems from a host of major cities, further afield throughout the UK: Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Portmouth, Cambridge, Bournemouth, Oxford, London etc. Many patients who live further afield, we are able to support via Telehealth Consultation (Online Video Consultation).
