Back-On-Balance Chiropractic Clinic


    Back-On-Balance Chiropractic Clinic

Looking forward to meeting you.

Back-On-Balance is a private Chiropractic Clinic, I am bound by my effectiveness, the majority of New Patients are Referrals (over 90% from other satisfied patients). My treatments are not rushed, the clinic is in a beautifully converted Mill overlooking the river Wye, I allocate 60 to 90minutes for the New Patient Consultation, follow-up treatments are between 30 and 40 minutes (depending on what needs doing).

The New Patient

Firstly will start with a discussion about your reasons for asking for chiropractic help. Any questions that you didn’t understand or you want clarifying can be explained. It is important to get as much information as possible at this stage, to ensure that chiropractic care is appropriate an overall health picture is necessary. Your details are confidential. No one else will be allowed to see your notes without your permission.

How safe is chiropractic treatment?

Chiropractic has a very active research movement and has made strong headway in proving we should take a leading role in the management of back pain. The guiding body to G.P’s called NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) advised all of the G.P’s in 2009 to refer for spinal manipulation as done by us. Dr Michelle Marsh is registered by the GCC (General Chiropractic Council) 01740 and insured through the BCA (British Chiropractic Association).

Our Treatments

Before your treatment starts you will find out in clear, simple terms what is wrong with you, what can be done about it and what you should expect from a treatment or a treatment programme.

This is your Report of Findings. Providing it is a muscular skeletal problem you will be told how you can help yourself, the best way to get a treatment to last and make a difference is to take part in the recovery process.

You will also be advised of costs that might relate to your future care. Depending on the problem it might be possible to predict the likelihood of any recurrences and possibly if there might be any need for ongoing supportive care. This is not an unusual situation for people who have had joint injuries or those with long term problems due to degeneration (arthritis).

The treatment offered is based on your individual needs, chiropractors are trained to manipulate joints and if that is appropriate that will be offered. Safe, specific adjustments done by hand to free the joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Most often this requires a short thrust to a joint that can sometimes result in an audible ‘crack’. Soft tissue work is often required to help release contracted ‘guarding’ muscles.

MSL Laser Therapy is sometimes recommended, this is a non-invasive and non-painful treatment, extensive research suggests that 10 out of 12 patients report a benefit in relieving painful symptoms. It has anti-inflammatory analgesic effects.

Please ask if you have any questions or concerns about different treatment options.
