Be Your Best
Focus on your career, not your back!
Work one-to-one with an experienced clinician to find out what you can start doing straight away to get back in control of your back & body
Time missed from work due to back pain is a massive problem and is the leading cause of work related absence in Europe.
If you are struggling to work because of a troublesome back then you are certainly not alone.
It's confusing to know what to do for the best. You have probably been given advice about how to sit and and how to set your workstation - but does any of it help?
We can go through a full discussion of what's going on with you, your back and your work.
We will put together a plan to help you reduce your levels of pain and discomfort and make it easier for you to work at your best.
We will cover:
The story of when and how your pain developed
How it has affected your work
What your working environment is like and what alterations could be made?
What else may be contributing to a low back issue - such as stress, poor sleep, lack of exercise
Easy movements you can do during work to ease pain
All aspects of your recovery will be addressed and all assessments include a consideration as to whether you may be in need of medical attention for the problem that you are experiencing. This is very rare, but you will benefit from the peace of mind of knowing that you have a problem that can be overcome with Chiropractic & Pain Recovery Coaching.
So that we can get an idea of where you are with your problem and what goals you would like to work towards we start with a free chat with Hedd. This can be done over the phone, by Skype or Teams.
Leading up to your introductory appointment you will receive some online forms to complete via Care Response.
You can arrange your introductory chat by giving us a call on 01970 611190 or by registering on the online booking site here.
Due to the current restrictions placed on us due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have had to slightly modify our procedure when taking on new patients.
Following your phone call we will schedule a 30 minute appointment at the clinic where you will be examined using medical, orthopaedic and movement tests. If there seems to be the need to refer you to your GP for further tests this should be discussed at this visit.
We will also schedule the second half of this consultation, which must take place on a different day.
During this second visit, the findings of the examination will be reported to you and a plan of care outlined. If the problem you have seems amenable to care, then treatment will probably begin on this visit.
The cost of the initial two consultation visits is a total of £75.00.
Your response to the recommendations and treatment will be followed up within the first week.
Most cases of simple back and neck pain (simple meaning there doesn't seem to be an underlying cause) should respond over two to three weeks of care which typically consists of one or two visits a week.
If response to care has not been satisfactory after 1 month then we will schedule a review of your situation.
Once you feel like you are in control of the problem then we will naturally see you less and less.
The hope is that you reach a point whereby you feel strong enough not to need a scheduled appointment and can return as and when it may be needed.
Recent research (which you can read here) found that people who attended for chiropractic 'maintenance' care (typically seeing a chiropractor every other month or so) reduced their time off work due to bothersome low back pain just by attending for check-ups and minor treatments. This means it may be recommended to you to visit the clinic every so often, especially if the problem has been around for a long time.
