I believe in being as thorough as possible with your health.

I believe in giving you the most realistic and accurate diagnosis of your problem.

I believe in collaborating with you in working towards overcoming pain.

I know that pain can be complex.

I know that there is a lot of confusion about what causes back pain and what is the best treatment for it.

I know that being in pain is not fun and can be scary.

That is why to maximise your chances of a good outcome I have developed the new patient complete package. 

 

It's an antidote to the idea that there is a quick fix for spinal problems.

So that I can fully understand what may be behind your pain  we will go through:

  • A free initial evaluation to get an idea of your suitability for the plan.

  • A 30 minute Zoom call to discuss more fully what is going on (without the hassle of coming into town!).

  • A thorough physical examination using medical, orthopaedic, neurological and movement tests.

  • A written report detailing what the examination found and what we should be focussing on to help you.

  • A discussion of the report so that you understand the cause of the problem.

  • Email support in-between all visits so that you can ask anything you'd like about your problem and I'll do my best to answer in full.

  • Consideration and organisation of referral to your GP if necessary.

  • Referral for MRI, DEXA (bone density) scan if necessary.

  • Consideration and co-ordination of ordering blood tests and seeing a rheumatologist if necessary.

  • Ordering blood tests investigating vitamin D deficiency if appropriate (the test is an additional £29).

  • Online resources emailed to you to help you understand more about your pain.

  • Three follow-up sessions to lay the foundations for your recovery.  We will go through exercises for you to reduce the pain and I can help you learn about what's really causing your pain so that you feel more in control of your body.  Some myths will be busted!

  • Easy access to our beautiful town centre clinic with free parking a stone's throw away.

  • Access to our online booking system so that you can book future appointments easily.

  • Referral to our in-house sports therapist for additional sessions of massage if felt it would be beneficial.

  • Ongoing reviews of your progress and an overall review if progress is not satisfactory.

  • A referral to another health care professional if it's felt we can't help you.

This complete package of all five appointments and the support in between visits is £249*

 

*There may be instances where the complete package is not suitable for you - please fill in the intake form first and I will be able to advise you on this before you book.
