Help for back pain at Lagos Health Chiropractor Clinic Algarve APQ member

EXPERT HELP FOR YOUR NECK, SHOULDER AND LOWER BACK PAIN

Our primary aim is to make you feel better, which is why it's extremely important to find the underlying cause of your complaint, whether it is back, neck, shoulder, knee or extremities pain. We believe you will not find a more comprehensive consultation, diagnostic and gentle treatment service at any other chiropractic clinic on the Algarve...and our patients agree with us! See what many of them have to say here.

By the way, there's no need to get dressed up for your appointment...wear something loose and comfortable!

YOUR INITIAL CONSULTATION & DIAGNOSIS

Here at LAGOS HEALTH CHIROPRACTIC AND WELLNESS, your first contact will be with our experienced Chiropractic Assistant, Eugènia, who will welcome you to the clinic and ask you to fill in a comprehensive questionnaire regarding your general health. You will then be seen by our Principal Chiropractor Dr Wen Oates, who will discuss your condition with you, run through a number of sensory and physical tests and give you your first chiropractic treatment. Like family doctors and dentists, it takes four to five years of full-time study and training to become a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic, so you can be confident that you are in competent, reliable hands and that we will offer the most suitable treatment option for you.

Chiropractors are the REAL spine specialists...we know more about your spine, joints and muscles than anyone else, including most osteopaths and physiotherapists! People put their trust in us because we have studied for more than four years to become trained and fully qualified to gently look after you and your body. As registered members of the Portuguese Chiropractic Association (APQ), you can put your trust in us too.

Remember, unlike some other clinics, we will treat you on your first visit!

Our fully comprehensive consultation and diagnostic service lasts up to an hour and includes:

  • Taking a full history
  • Orthopaedic examination (testing joints, ligaments and muscles)
  • Neurological examination (testing nerves)
  • Posture and Gait assessment
  • Range of Motion assessment (testing flexibility)

Following your assessment, we will go through a confidential clinical report of findings that will include:

  • Diagnosis
  • Detailed summary of your results (what it all means)
  • Personalised treatment plan
  • An explanation of measures you can take
  • Referral to an appropriate specialist if chiropractic treatment is not suitable
  • Written report to your GP if clinically necessary

You will also have your first chiropractic treatment. Please try to wear comfortable clothing when you attend the clinic, as you may be asked to change down to your underwear.

YOUR TREATMENT

Subsequent treatment sessions last between 15 and 20 minutes and include a range of techniques tailored to each patient. You may have seen online or heard people mention the Diversified Technique, the Activator Method, Thumper or the Graston Technique...all of these are forms of manual therapy, some using small hand-held instruments, performed by chiropractors to help their patients recover. All of them can include additional combinations of gentle manipulative techniques, therapeutic massage and muscle stretches. This treatment is supported with advice on posture, work ergonomics, exercise and diet. Over time, by incorporating the treatment and all these aspects, you WILL see positive results and a reduced chance of relapse.

As you will appreciate, the overall cost of treatment will vary from patient to patient and depend on a number of factors, including the nature of the condition, how long the complaint has been present and the patient's age, along with various lifestyle factors. Therefore, you may need only a couple of treatments to feel better, or perhaps several sessions may be needed over a period of weeks. However, this will be fully discussed during your Initial Consultation, as well as later in your treatment plan as your recovery process continues.

Adult - Initial Consultation of between 45 and 60 minutes - 80€

Adult - Subsequent visits of between 15 and 20 minutes - 30€

Child - Initial Consultation of between 45 and 60 minutes - 60€

Child - Subsequent visits of between 15 and 20 minutes - 22€

If you haven't been to see us for a year or more, you will have to be re-assessed and the cost will be the same as an initial consultation at 80€.
