Frequently Asked Questions

What happens on my first visit for chiropractic?

Your initial visit with Wendy will take up to an hour. This is because, for the first part of the session, you get to talk about yourself. Wendy will take a full medical history from you. Then she will explain what she is going to do. If you are happy with that, she will then treat you. This is why the initial session is always a little dearer than the follow up sessions.

And after that?

Any follow up sessions will take up to half an hour. Wendy will review your progress and treat you.

How many sessions will I need?

Most people find between two and six sessions are usually enough to deal with many straightforward problems. The number and frequency of treatments will depend on a number of factors, including:

  • Age

  • The nature of your condition

  • How long you have had the problem

  • General fitness

  • Stress (muscle tension and stress on your nervous system)

  • Posture

  • What you do following treatment

Once your health improves regular maintenance treatments may be suggested which may help to keep chronic conditions under control. Maintenance treatments may be scheduled as frequently as once a month, or once a year, depending on need.

Can I pay by card?

Wendy does not have a card machine, so no. She can accept payment by cash, cheque or bank transfer though.

Why doesn't anyone answer the phone?

Wendy does not have a receptionist. If someone is free they will answer, but often Wendy is with a patient so  unable to take your call. Messages are regularly collected. So please leave a message, with your name and number, and someone will return your call.
