Below are a list of the most common questions we receive at Greenwich Chiropractic. You can refer to our sector pages for questions and answers directly related to a specific service or treatment we offer.
Can I pay by credit card or cheque?
We accept all major credit and debit cards, cash, cheque and are also happy to offer online payments via electronic banking or Paypal.
Do I have to pay a cancellation fee?
We kindly ask for 24 hours notice for cancellations so that we may offer an appointment to someone else in need. We know unavoidable circumstances do sometimes arise however failure to attend appointments or late notice of cancellation may incur a fee.
How long is a session?
For an Initial Chiropractic Consultation please allow 45 minutes for the appointment, we also appreciate if patients are able to arrive 5 minutes before their appointment time on the first visit to complete registration forms.
How many sessions will I need?
Every patient and every condition is different, therefore every patient will be advised of their ideal course of management for both the short and long term to achieve the optimum result. This of course is result of dialogue between the Chiropractor and the patient and will always be tailored to the patients needs, goals, availability and circumstance.
What can I expect on my first visit?
On the Initial Chiropractic Consultation we will take a comprehensive medical history as well as discuss the history of your presenting condition, followed by an examination to ascertain an accurate diagnosis. Once an explanation of the diagnosis and other contributing factors has been made we will proceed with treatment on the first visit wherever appropriate. If any further investigations are required external referrals can be made for x-rays, scans or consultants.
Follow up Chiropractic treatments will include continuing re-assessment of your progress and modifications to the treatment plan and frequency as required. We believe in every patient and condition having an individualised treatment plan that is appropriate for your specific needs.
Massage Therapy treatments will involve a brief history and examination to ascertain a diagnosis and plan of management followed by the hands on treatment. Treatment style and focus will be a joint decision between the patient and the practitioner taking into account the best recommended techniques and patient preference.
What clothing do I need to wear?
Typically chiropractic treatment and examination does not require patients to disrobe however if possible we ask that patients wear loose, comfortable clothing, or alternatively bring some gym style clothing to change into. On occasions we do need to ask patients to wear a clinic gown when examining a particular area or condition if they are comfortable doing so.
