You will be warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Help is on its way!

New practice members often remark how “homey” our office is. That’s good, because our goal is to offer state-of-the-art chiropractic care in a comfortable surrounding. We are a family practice and love seeing children and babies. We have a children’s play area so feel free to bring your children along to your regular visits too. We also provide baby changing facilities.

Make Yourself at Home

At your first visit you will be welcomed by one of our assistants who will then ask you to complete some preliminary paperwork. This will include a questionnaire on your health history, some important information about the surface electromyography scan, sEMG (used to assess the function of your spine and nervous system) and about x-rays (which assess the bony integrity of your spine).

After you complete your paperwork, you will be shown into the Orientation room where you will meet Hexham chiropractor, Belinda Ambrose.

We Explain Everything First

The purpose of your consultation with the doctor is to discuss your health goals and see how chiropractic can possibly help you.

Belinda Ambrose will ask you questions about your particular concerns to gain a greater understanding of your current health status. She will then give you an introduction to chiropractic by explaining the principles behind how it works so you can develop a greater understanding of how it may help you. After she feels she has all the relevant facts relating your particular situation, Belinda will perform the sEMG and then give you a full physical examination. By this time, we will have gathered a great deal of valuable information about your health.

This visit may take up to an hour.

The next stage might be to assess the bone integrity of the spine with x-rays. This will not be necessary in babies and children for the majority of the time, except in exceptional circumstances.

This will be done on your second visit.
