Our approach

You can meet the team or find out what to expect on your first visit here.

At the clinic we use a diverse and dynamic approach to problem solving – we have applied and merged different core areas of Chiropractic assessment and treatment techniques, with highly effective exercise protocols, and management plans – which when added together produce superb results.

‘We find out whatever will work for you best, and treat you as a whole person not just the area that is painful. Our integrated approach enables us to assess you as an individual – we all have different requirements, different problems, and different goals.’

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to get results?

Each persons problem will take different lengths of time to respond, and this can depend on where the problem is, how bad it is, and the length of time it has been building up for. We do expect to see results within 1-2 sessions in terms of the problem changing, to see that you are on the right track. An average course of treatment will take 4-6 sessions for you to make a notable and longer lasting change.

Should I come back once I the pain has gone?

If your problem 'came on for no reason' or just 'appeared' then it is likely that it came from many strains and postural changes accumulating over the year, in which case once we get you better be may advise periodic check ups or 'MOT's' to keep things as god as we left them, probably every 2-3 months depending on your problem.

Do I pay all at once?

No,this is a 'pay as you go' service. Unlike with dentistry for example, where you would find out at the initial consultation the work which needs to be carried out, you and your spine are dynamic and your course of treatment will depend on how well you are doing. We monitor your progress each time and can make any further follow up appointments based on that.

Do I need X-rays or an MRI scan?

This will very much depend on your issue and circumstances. As part of your initial assessment a full spinal and neurological examination will be undertaken, and this, combined with your history, will give a very good indication of whether any imaging is needed.

I have wear and tear/disc damage, can I still come in?

Yes, this is absolutely fine and we are trained to assess and treat patients specifically with these conditions. Your suitability for care will be explained whether you are post surgical, or have a disc or joint syndrome that doesn't require surgery. We will talk you through your specific treatment options based on the problem.

Do I need to see my GP first?

No, we accept patients on a private basis and as such you can book in for an appointment and be seen quickly.If you need pain medications, or if we feel your GP needs to be made aware of your problem (e.g. if any further tests such as imaging or blood tests are required) then we can contact your GP with your permission to suggest this.

How much training do you need to be a Chiropractor?

The minimum required training to be a Chiropractor is 4 years. This is a very extensive course which involves a strong background in science and medical modules (Anatomy, Physiology, Histopathology, Biochemistry, Biomechanics, Neurology, Orthopaedics, Pathology and Medical Diagnosis) combined with hands on lab sessions (Chiropractic technique, soft tissue and myofascial techniques, Radiology, Neurology and Medical assessment) integrated with case studies and a clinical internship. Andrew completed a previous degree in Human Musculoskeletal Science prior to completing his Chiropractic training and has gone on to complete further study to enhance his patient Care.

Are Chiropractor’s registered healthcare professionals?

Yes. To call yourself a Chiropractor you must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) and undertake yearly CPD and registration reviews. By law, the GCC must check those who apply for registration to make sure that they have a Chiropractic qualification, are of good character and are physically and mentally fit set and monitor standards of education and training set standards of practice and conduct deal with any complaints about the conduct or practice of Chiropractors.

Will I be sore afterwards?

You may experience some increase in pain or soreness after the treatment - which may be due to the treatment itself or the joints moving differently after we made any corrections. If you have a more active injury there may be existing inflammation there which needs time to 'shift'. Ice and keeping active are generally recommended.

I've seen Andrew at Chellaston Chiropractic Clinic for shoulder and back pain due to age and over exertion.

Andrew made me feel comfortable immediately, listening carefully and giving me time to explain my concerns. He asked questions to elicit the exact nature of my problems and after treatment gave me advice on how to avoid problems in the future. His understanding, patience, and holistic approach has ensured I got better after treatment and also am able to keep active and fit. - Kate Tollervey
