Your First Visit

What happens on your first visit?

Chiropractor BrightonAfter listening to your concerns we examine you thoroughly.

Once we’ve diagnosed the problem we sit down and discuss the choices you have, which may include referring you to another specialist. If chiropractic can help, we’ll explain your treatment options simply and clearly and give you all the information you need to decide what’s best.

We’ll also explain the costs fully, and we’re happy to spend time answering any questions you have. The important thing to us is that you’re involved at every stage and that we get you better, fast.

Will It Hurt?

Chiropractic BrightonChiropractic adjustments are generally painless. You may hear a pop or click as the chiropractor pushes lightly and skillfully on the affected areas. It feels more like a flick than anything else.

However, some people just don’t like the clicking sound. If you feel this way, please just let us know. We have a wide range of techniques that don’t involve clicking and we guarantee we can make the whole experience comfortable for you.

Bring any previous x-rays

If you have had x-rays or scans taken before, even many years ago, please bring them along. If you can’t, a copy of the report would be very helpful.

Sundial Clinics BrightonWhat to wear

Please wear loose clothing. On your first visit we may ask you to undress and put a gown on, so it’s best to wear appropriate underwear too. If you feel uncomfortable about this, just bring some exercise clothes or let us know and we’ll find another way.

Keep to your Plan of Care

You’ll be given a unique Plan of Care which is carefully designed to give you the best results. If you want to get better fast, please stick to your Plan. If you need to reschedule an appointment, do make another as soon as possible.

Give it time

Proper healing takes time. Regular visits over several weeks are often needed to sort out underlying problems that may have been developing for years. Like going to the gym or changing your diet, the best results are seen after sticking at it for a while.

Take our advice

We’ll give you exercises to do and some advice about your daily activities. Following this will help you get the most out of your treatment and prevent the problem from recurring.

Ask questions

We love it when you get involved, so ask away. We want to tell all you need to know about your problem: its causes, treatment and how to prevent the pain from returning. It’s easy to forget what you want to ask between appointments so feel free to bring notes in.

Our Guarantee

Our practice has been built on the belief that happy, satisfied patients get better faster – and tell their friends!

Most spinal problems involve muscles and soft tissues that are slow to heal and need a series of chiropractic treatments to improve. Because each case is unique, and there can be many complex reasons for chiropractic problems, we can’t guarantee that everyone who comes to us will be cured. That’s just not realistic. However, what we do guarantee is that you’ll be completely satisfied with the care you receive from us. If you’re not happy with the quality of care that we give you, just tell us within 14 days of starting your treatment and we’ll refund your payments in full.

We have been in Brighton since 1991 and now carry out more than 20,000 treatment visits a year and 97% of people who are attending the clinic rate our care as good or excellent. Our professional approach, gentle treatment and friendly, caring staff have made us Brighton’s favourite chiropractic clinic.
