SPEAK TO A CHIROPRACTOR

What To Expect At Your First Visit

Your first visit to Chiropractor Bramhall will be your most important, it will help your chiropractor to understand your body and formulate your individual treatment plan. Here’s what you can expect at your first appointment…

History

One of our chiropractors will begin by asking you questions about your complaint and any other problems that have been concerning you. We will also cover a detailed past medical history, which will enable us to obtain an overview of your health and wellbeing.

Exam

Following the history we will carry out a thorough orthopaedic, neurological and Chiropractic examination, to find the root cause of your problem.

Report of Findings

We will provide you with a diagnosis and discuss your treatment plan. If after the history or examination your chiropractor feels the problem is unsuitable for chiropractic care we will make sure you are referred to the appropriate specialists.

 In your report of findings we will also discuss:

  • What we found during your examination (what was good and what was bad)

  • Our recommended treatment plan, length of care and costs involved

  • If necessary, the need for any further investigations

  • We will provide you with advice on self help including home rehabilitation

Give you the opportunity to ask any questions

Treatment

Once you are happy with everything we have discussed you are ready for your first chiropractic session.

Phases of Treatment

Recovery
The initial phase will help you recover from your injury by ensuring the accurate diagnosis, advising and administering the correct treatment plan. This can last from a few days to several weeks depending on the injury. The frequency at this stage may be a little more to begin with so we can get on top of the pain and dyfunction
Rehabilitation
Following the initial recovery phase we aim to continue to improve function through; lifestyle modifications (to remove negative day to day events), home or gym exercise programmes to build strength and endurance and continuing treatment where appropriate, albeit less frequently. This will help us to ensure the body is better protected against future injuries
Maintenance
Through improving joint, muscle and nerve function through; appropriate treatment, exercise training regimes, home advice and nutritional guidance we aim to help prepare your body to function at its paramount whether at home, at work or in sport

What Our Customers Say

Worth every penny! Never been to a chiropractor before but with constant lower back pain I decided to see Jordan and felt amazing afterwards. I didn’t realise there was so much involved, talked me through everything and gave me great advice on what steps to take next.

Matthew Stapleton

Wilmslow

Jordan has been “fixing” my body for years now. Forget physiotherapists, I only see him for maintenance and when I’ve injured myself in training. Fully recommended.

Walter Rajah

Macclesfield

After a fall from my horse when show jumping I felt immediate pain in both my Hip and Knee. 3 months of rest, several GP and physio appointments later I was still in pain and unable to ride. After a referral from a fellow horse enthusiast I met with Jordan who immediately pointed out some glaring issues. 2 weeks later I was back on a horse and competing 3 weeks later. I now use Jordan once every month and also have found a Chiropractor for my horse.
