How many sessions are necessary?After the first consultation we will inform you about your personalised treatment plan, indicating how many sessions of chiropractic or osteopathy you will need and how often. Each case is different, and each person can react in a different way to the treatment.
What happens at the first consultation and how much does it cost?The first consultation is one to one with the Chiropractor or Osteopath and lasts approximately 45 minutes, during which the professional will take detailed notes of your medical history and perform a complete physical examination to assess and diagnose your case. The price of the first consultation is 50 euros.
Do I need to bring my X-rays or MRIs?If you have them, please bring them! We ask you to bring any X-rays, MRIs, other tests or health reports that you may have, even if they are old, so that we can work with this potentially valuable information.
What if I do not have any x-rays?Do not worry. In some cases X-rays are required to start treatment and we have agreements with private clinics in Alicante to do the X-rays quickly, easily and for a very reasonable price. If the X-rays or MRIs are with the seguridad social or with your insurance company we will be happy to help you with the easy process of getting copies. The cost of any new X-rays or MRIs that need to be done will be paid by the patient.
Can I go to the gym / go to work after the treatment?In principle our treatments are compatible with your routine and lifestyle and we do not like to change too much to begin with unless there is obviously something that is negatively affecting your health. In any case, if you have any doubts we will always be able to discuss them when you come for a session.
Can my friends or family accompany me?Yes of course! They are very welcome! We will give you very valuable information about your health, particularly during the first two visits so many patients come accompanied by a partner, family member or friend to help gather and process the information. Our private treatment rooms have enough space to comfortably fit your companion.
My Pain has gone. Should I stop treatment and then wait for the symptoms to return before I come back for more treatment?Osteopathic and chiropractic treatment can help us all, whether we are in the midst of a painful crisis, whether we have some mild aches and pains or if we want to keep ourselves in tip top condition. We aim to make your body and nervous system work to their maximum potential, which helps you to feel great and maintain your health and well-being in the long term.
The nervous system runs your immune system so a healthy spine could help your immunity, flexibility, body posture and quality of life in general. So you can do the things that you want to do!
Whether it hurts today, or it hurt yesterday, or it doesn’t hurt at all then there is still a good chance we can help, whether it be preventative care or care reacting to a painful crisis. In the end you will do what you think is right but be careful not to base your health solely by how you feel because a lack of symptoms does not necessarily mean the problem has been solved.
Do you provide preventive treatments?Yes! Prevention is better than cure! After performing a thorough first visit to find out everything we need to know about your health we can recommend a maintenance or wellness plan tailored to your needs in order to maintain your health and physical performance to its full potential.
