Is Chiropractic Safe?

Chiropractors typically have 5 years of University level training and are highly experienced as they have given thousands of adjustments thus making chiropractic care very safe. In fact, Chiropractic is the largest drug free healing profession in the world and the third largest primary health care profession after medicine and dentistry.

There are now tens of thousands of registered chiropractors in the world.

Chiropractic is safer than many of the everyday things that we take for granted. Most chiropractic adjustments feel good! Sometimes, due to the severity of a patient’s case, their symptoms may mask this feeling of wellbeing.

How Does It Feel?

The first time a patient has an adjustment it may sound loud. This is because as the Chiropractor adjusts the patients neck, the sound is a lot louder for the patient on the inside compared to what anyone else hears on the outside. This audible popping sound indicates that pressure has been taken off the spine. This is perfectly normal.

Each adjustment itself is tailored for the individual as Doctors of Chiropractic can adjust anyone from newborns to the elderly.

How Long Will it Take?

This is a very individual answer and depends on different factors including:-

  1. how long you have had the problem;
  2. how bad it is;
  3. how much damage has occurred;
  4. how quickly you personally heal and whether you attend all your appointments; and
  5. your lifestyle and nutritional habits.

How Much Will It Cost?

When we look at cost I have to mention 2 aspects. Firstly what it will cost you to receive Chiropractic care and then what it will cost you not to receive the care.

To receive care in our clinic we have designed the fees to allow you and your family to receive the highest quality care at an affordable fee. The longer you receive care the less stress and tension is in your body, the greater the benefits. Our fees reflect this.

You can pay each time you come or you can buy a block of care. Quite simply the more you buy the more you save. If there is a second family member who lives at home with you, they are only charged the concession fees. Please see more on: Our Fees

What Happens If I Leave The Problem or Just Cover the Pain?

All the evidence tells us that uncorrected Spinal problems get worse the longer they are left. Nobody likes to have an unexpected bill, even when it occurs as a result of an accident. To leave a problem or to simply only get some short term relief will eventually cost more, both in pain and suffering, as well as money. Why wait?

The price of the adjustment is known, but the value is priceless.

Do I need a referral from my GP?

You do not need a referral from your GP because chiropractors are primary health care providers but we do have patients at our clinic who have been referred by their GP’s.

I have health insurance – will I be covered?

Most likely because we are registered with most major insurance companies. However, if we are not familiar with your particular insurance company, then we will ensure that we introduce ourselves to them to make your visits as smooth as possible.

I don’t know what I’d do without my monthly appointment. My movement vastly improved and there has been a reduction in persistent when I discovered this clinic.

After being diagnosed with BPPV Vertigo I was really suffering and after not really making any progress with the Betahistine prescribed by the Doctor at the Royal Stoke I decided to see Dr Finn, who has previously resolved other muscular and skeletal injuries for myself and my family. With BPPV Vertigo being an issue with the inner ear I wasn’t sure if this was something he could resolve promptly ? The clinic fitted me in really quickly and after just two short visits my BPPV was fully resolved. After spending so much time on 111 and at the hospital I was relieved at how swiftly and efficiently Dr Finn resolved my BPPV, which was really bad. I can fully recommend this clinic for this and other treatments in a professional and effective manner. 10/10

My wife was suddenly in real pain around her hip area and upon making a phone call to Newcastle Chiropractic was given an immediate appointment. With a total of no more than 20 minutes she was feeling a lot less pain and doing gentle walking as recommended by Rob. She’s very grateful with a lot less pain and feeling mobile again.

I first started seeing Rob in 1998 when he took over from Jane Hvas at the Brampton Clinic. I have now been a patient of Robs for 25 years. I don't know what I would have done without the treatment and support I have re eived from him. He's simply the best.

Dott. Burcu Cetinkaya is the best chiropractor I've ever been treated by, and I've had many. Since the first visit at the clinic I've been examinated and listened very carefully about my problems and I've been given a personalised plan of treatment and exercises straight away. I've been checked vertebra by vertebra and rettified my posture, basically if there is a problem she will find out and I've never been so happy with my back, my problems they're gone and my posture is the best ever. I can't thank dott. Burcu enough even if an emergency occurred she has been always available and makes me feel safe.
Not the last the ladies on reception are the kindest ever. The clinic service is a 5 star ???? all round. Thank you ???? ???? ????????
