Frequently Asked Questions

Can chiropractic help me?


We generally deal with musculoskeletal issues, so if your issue does not fall into this category we can guide you toward the correct medical professionals.




How long will I take to get better?


There are far too many variables to be able to answer this question accurately for everybody. A typical treatment plan is anywhere between 4 - 12 treatments but this will vary. If you would like to know more and get a bespoke answer please contact us.




Do I need to be referred by my GP?


No, Chiropractic is a primary health care profession, this means appointments are available to the public without a referral.




Does chiropractic treatment hurt?


Spinal Manipulation Therapy when performed by fully qualified, licensed professionals does not hurt, in fact most people find it feels good. Chiropractors use Spinal Manipulation Therapy to decrease pain and increase the function of the small joints within your spine. The popping noise you hear is actually coming from tiny bubbles of gas forming and popping in the fluid of your joints, this is known as cavitation. This sound is not significant, and does not hurt. The sound isn't a guide to the quality or value of the adjustment. SMT is incredibly safe and has been proven to be an effective treatment modality to treat a number of conditions in the spine.




Where do I park?


Our clinic within PB performance gym has a large, free, onsite car park. We cannot offer on-site parking at our city centre clinic due to the central location of the clinic. The Capitol car park is just a 1 minute walk from our front door. We also have excellent public trasnsport links being just a 1 minute walk from Queen Street Train Station. There are also multiple bus stops right outside the clinic.




Is Chiropractic care expensive?


This question is relative. We believe Chiropractic should be seen as an investment in your health. As with all private health care, there is a cost. Our prices are very competitive. We promise not to "hard sell" any treatment packages and will only suggest the treatment we feel will benefit you and no more.




"Once you start seeing a Chiropractor you have to go to them forever" Is this true?


Not true! Some people only want to be treated for a specific complaint and when the symptoms disappear they stop going. Others use chiropractic care to fully correct the underlying cause of the symptoms and to remain healthy. Like a car, your body has constant stress and wear, and it benefits from an ‘MOT’. However, which treatment approach you want is always your choice.




What level of education do Chiropractors have?


In order to practise as a Chiropractor in the United Kingdom, you must have completed a 4-year degree from a recognised, accredited institution. Both Chiropractors at Ashwood have Masters degrees in Chiropractic from the Welsh Institute of Chiropractic. Chiropractors are regulated by the General Chiropractic Council. Both Chiropractors are also members of the British Chiropractic Association.




How long are your treatments?


The length of your treatments is dependent on what needs to be done. This is akin to booking an appointment with a dentist, you only book an appointment time not length. Our treatment is tailored to your individual needs.




Are Chiropractors Regulated?


Yes, The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) regulates chiropractors in the UK to ensure the safety of patients undergoing chiropractic treatment.The GCC is an independent statutory body established by Parliament to regulate the chiropractic profession. They protect the health and safety of the public by ensuring high standards of practice in the chiropractic profession.The title of 'chiropractor' is protected by law and it is a criminal offence for anyone to describe themselves as a chiropractor without being registered with the GCC. They check that all chiropractors are properly qualified and are fit to practise.
