Clinic Policy

Welcome to Horizon Chiropractic 

 

My promise

We take great pride in what we do and it’s important you feel completely satisfied with our care.  Our promise is that we’ll work hard to get you to where you want to be. It is impossible to guarantee results when dealing with health care and pain, however, like all good private medical institutions, Horizon Chiropractic succeeds due to satisfied patients. The quicker and more completely you get better, the happier you are and the more people you will tell about our approach. 

 

Appointments 

It is essential for the operation of the working day that all patients are punctual for their appointments. Those who are on time will be given priority to those who are running late. Please allow for parking, using the facilities and chatting with the lovely front desk staff. Conversely, sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to spend longer with a patient…..this is often because they are in a great deal of discomfort and need a little extra time. If, for whatever reason, we are running late, please use this time to relax and peruse what else the spa has to offer.

Please keep to the frequency of the treatment plan we agree in order to achieve the best results. Each visit builds on from the one before. Should you need to re-arrange an appointment, please contact the front desk as soon as possible. There will be a small charge of £10 for cancellations within 12 hours which goes in the charity box. This is so we never have to turn people away who are in pain and could have otherwise used that appointment to. Re-scheduling for later that day is accepted.

 

Response and side-effects 

The usual response to treatment is a gradual improvement in symptoms and return to normal function. The time frame for pain relief and healing is dependant on a few variables: how long you’ve had the problem for; the severity of the symptoms; your lifestyle and attitude; age and previous medical history.  Our goal is to help you understand these variables as much as possible to increase the likelihood of a straightforward recovery. 

All forms of medical treatment carry some element of risk, however, Chiropractic care is one of the safest and most effective forms of treatment for musculoskeletal health. The most common side effect after treatment is a little tenderness and/or stiffness. This can last for 12-24 hours. This is entirely normal and a common side effect of any physical therapy, however, if you have any concerns after your appointment, please call the front desk and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

 

Data Protection

We take handling your data seriously and we want you to be completely comfortable with how we store and handle your data. The full policy can be found on the Horizon Chiropractic Website here. However, if you would like a hard copy then do ask.

 

Head’s up

You may already be aware that I (Meriel) also work on the international circuit at various sporting championships. I will be sending you the odd/infrequent email to pre-warn you of any sports events and championships that may take me away from my office. This is to ensure that, should you need to see me you can be assured you know my trip dates. Emails are kept to a bare minimum and are sent out of legitimate interest to you to keep you informed so you’re not disappointed. Please ‘opt-out’ if you don’t want to receive them.
