FAQs

How many treatments do I need?

As many times as you like, I’m not interested in selling you a package you don’t want. I do recommend that we find and correct the underlying cause of your symptoms, rather than just providing temporary relief, but it is completely up to you. I understand that life is busy, you might have 12 children to look after, work 70 hours per week or perhaps you can’t afford more than a few treatments. Just tell me what you want, and I will do my best to work to your goals. Equally, I will let you know if your goal is unrealistic e.g. you have an acute disc herniation (slipped disc) and want to have only 2 treatments.

 

I will inform you during the initial consultation how long treatment is likely to take to see a significant improvement in your symptoms, and how long I would expect it to take to rehabilitate movement, balance and posture to prevent recurrence of your symptoms.

 

I will always be honest with you and focus on helping your achieve your personal goals.

Does treatment hurt?

It depends on your condition. If I need to work with a compressed nerve, or a strained muscle, then yes, I would expect treatment to be a little tender in the beginning. This normally becomes significantly less tender within 4 treatments. After the treatment you my experience pain for 1-2 days after but this is quite rare.

 

You are in control of the treatment, so if it is too painful, you just have to tell me and I will stop or change the treatment technique.

What are Jake’s qualifications?

I studied for 4 years at the Anglo-European Chiropractic College where I received a Masters in Chiropractic (MChiro) with Merit in 2009.

 

In 2014 I became a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB) by passing the American Chiropractic Neurology Board exams. I am one of only 16 chiropractors in the UK to have done so. In order to maintain this title I complete a minimum of 30 hours of neurology seminars per year but normally average 100 hours, alongside teaching neurology seminars and reading 2-3 research papers per week.

 

In 2016 I was part of the first class to become certified in Functional Neuro-Orthopedics Rehabilitation (FNOR). One of the most up-to-date and effective systems for treating chronic pain.

 

I am currently undertaking a Masters in Neuroscience, which will make this clinic one of the first Advanced Clinical Practices for chiropractic in the UK.

 

I am a full member of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and the General Chiropractic Council (BCA).
