The next step towards a pain-free future

Follow-up consultation

As with the initial assessment, we prefer to see you in person in our clinic if possible, but if it's not a video session on Zoom is another option.

This follow-up session focuses on the next steps. It's likely to last between 20 and 30 minutes.

You may have had a scan since we last saw you, or a referral for treatment, a further consultation, or medication - we need to determine what should happen next. Do please bring with you any relevant medical records you may have acquired since we last saw you.

Sometimes there will be a physical examination too, if you're in the room, subject to your consent!

The most important thing is that we have a full discussion with you, ensuring you are aware of the options available, and finalise your treatment plan which meets your needs and budget.

After every consultation we'll write to you to confirm our assessment, recommendations and detailing any referrals, and send a copy to your GP - if you'd like us to.

And we'll keep in touch with you to check whatever comes next is working for you, and to support you on your journey towards a future free of back and neck pain.

If our clinic times don't suit you, please contact us to advise of your preferred day and time, and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

Please be aware that, as detailed on this website, we offer a diagnostic and triaging service. We aim to help get to the root of your spine or neck problem, and advise on and support appropriate steps towards recovery and/or the relief of pain. We do not ourselves offer treatment directly, other than prescribing medication.
