The first appointment is up to one hour which enables me to ensure you get treatment as well as an examination and diagnosis. The diagnosis comprises of what is causing the problem and why it has developed.
I will take a detailed case history which will include your current complaint(s) as well as any past medical, accident and/or trauma history. I will also be interested in any other areas of health such as emotional stresses you are suffering or have suffered in the past as these too can be relevant to the current problem(s).
The treatment programme aims to relieve the current symptoms as well as address the underlying cause to prevent recurrence.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or carer (adult patients may bring a chaperone if desired).
