For your first appointment we would ask you to arrive about ten minutes early to fill in our case history form, relevant consents and data protection. If you have any medical referral letters, x rays or scans please could you bring those too. If you’re coming for Pilates and you have any concerns about a medical condition that you may have we would ask you to contact the clinic beforehand so the Pilates teachers can confer with our Chiropractors in addition to making their own assessment when you arrive.

For Chiropractic appointments, your Chiropractor will take a full case history and discuss your condition and any concerns or questions you may have. They will then do relevant orthopaedic and neurological tests related to your presenting complaint and to identify any health Red Flags that may exist. We will then discuss a likely diagnosis and a suggested treatment plan or onward referral. If appropriate and indicated we may offer treatment during this first session.

For Pilates you will discuss with your teacher any relevant medical history, previous injury or trauma and any exercise you have done in the past. They will then look at your movement patterns using simple exercises on the equipment and discuss a potential program for you.

Initial appointments are an hour for both Chiropractic and Pilates. We ask you to wear suitable gym kit for Pilates and, if possible, loose-fitting clothing for Chiropractic. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact reception beforehand.
