How to book


Standard course of treatments

Most patients respond well to chiropractic treatment and depending on the individual’s condition a course of treatment can vary from 2 to 3 treatments. This can be up to 6 treatments at regular intervals if a patient has carried a long standing injury.

Your chiropractor will tailor your treatment plan to you and aim towards routine maintenance treatments at either 3, 6 or 12 monthly intervals.
