What to Expect

Lightwater Health and Chiropractic is a private multidisciplinary clinic providing a variety of therapies known to improve your health.

Chiropractic:

Chiropractic treatment involves safe and gentle spinal manipulation to improve joint motion in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, our chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including dry needling, soft tissue techniques and tailored exercises.

We specialise in treating back pain, neck pain, trapped nerves, arthritis and all other joint pain including shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and wrist injuries.

Your first appointment with us will take up to 1 hour and include:

  • Full history
  • Full examination
  • Report of Findings consisting of a diagnosis, prescribed treatment plan and a referral to further investigation if necessary
  • First treatment
  • Post treatment advice

Follow up treatments will be specific to you and the number required can vary depending on each individual. The team at Lightwater Health & Chiropractic will use their experience and expertise to provide the best possible treatment and lifestyle advice.

The General Chiropractic Council have also released a guide on what to expect when you visit a chiropractor. To view this guide click here

Sports Massage

Sports therapy is not only for those who are involved in sport. Tight muscles, tension and restriction in the muscle fibres can be caused by sitting at a desk all day, gardening, postural problems or trauma such as whiplash, torn tendons or ligaments resulting in pain and muscle tightness.

Massage is effective at:

  • Easing muscular stress, tension and pain
  • Improving flexibility for efficient movement
  • Preventing injury by maintaining muscles in optimal condition
  • Promoting healing and recovery
  • Improving muscle tone
  • Reduces muscular scar tissue

It is also good for stress management by countering the detrimental physiological effects of stress releasing endorphins (feel good chemicals) that help us relax and therefore help to reduce anxiety levels.

Appointments are available in the mornings, evenings and weekends. Please call the clinic on 01276 423 434 to book your appointment.

Nutritionist & Naturopathy

Prior to your first consultation you will be provided with a detailed health and nutrition questionnaire to complete, including a 4 day food diary. A nutritional therapy consultation is an in-depth individual analysis and is aimed at targeting your specific health priorities. In this time detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, family history, supplementation will be asked. It may be required for you to have laboratory tests to help us fine-tune your nutritional programme. After this session you will be e-mailed a bespoke report regarding your specific needs and in-depth explanations , and additional food recommendation ideas. The consultations are friendly, relaxed & informal.

Foot Health Practitioner

With all first consultations I carry out a neurovascular assessment to check for any underlying health problems and to check the patients nerve sensation, I then take all medical history and a note of their current medication.
Temperatures & pulses are taken and then a discussion of what they would like done or if they have any pain or problems.
I then carry out foot care, usually starting with the nails and working my way down the foot cutting and filing nails, reducing thickened nails, reducing hard skin, enucleating corns, treatment advice and care for verruca's and ingrown toenails. And finally an application of cream is applied if required or desired.
