A lot of patients don’t know what to expect when they visit a British Chiropractic Association Chiropractor. I had a medical doctor observing me last week and he said he really didn’t know exactly what Chiropractors did, how they examined patients and the types of injuries they treated.

At Peverell Chiropractic Clinic we try to make your first visit as relaxing as possible. It’s a little like a fact finding mission to find out exactly what your complaint is, what is causing it and how we can help you. Remember we have probably seen hundreds if not thousands of similar problems to your.

First of all we will discuss the history of your condition, Then we will examine you to find out what is causing your injury, how serious it is and what we can do to resolve it. You will be given a physical examination which will include a series of simple orthopaedic and neurological tests, we can also arrange for any further tests in the event we feel this is necessary. During this session we will welcome your questions, listen to you and encourage you to let us know of concerns you may have. The more relaxed and comfortable you are the better we will be able to assess you and help you.

Below is a little information about the British Chiropractic Association:

The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) is the longest-standing and largest association for chiropractors in the UK. Founded in 1925 it has a membership comprising of over 50% of the registered chiropractors in the UK. The BCA only accepts members who have graduated from a nationally or internationally-recognised Chiropractic college, after a minimum of four years,(often 5 years) full-time training and ensures that its chiropractors maintain the highest standards of practice, conduct, education and training. The BCA was one of the founder members of the World Federation of Chiropractic and the European Chiropractors Union. All BCA members are comprehensively insured and the Association operates a robust professional standards process.
