What to expect with the first consultation;

Our practitioners will take you through a range of questions to extract as much detail as possible about your history and establish the facts to date.

We want to know what has happened, the reasons it happened and the impact it is having on your life.

This is followed by an examination that may include postural evaluation, muscle and joint testing, neurological testing and relevant orthopaedic tests.

At this point, if we have enough information, we will provide you with a diagnosis and a treatment plan to get you to where you want to be.

The plan will be discussed with you and if you agree to proceed we will start with the treatment program.
