What’s in a name? Our entire Philosophy!

THE Medical = Total Health Ethos

This is where our approach to health can help. We believe in being proactive and holistic, and that maintenance is better than repair. We call it 'Total Health Ethos' and it's at the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to keep you and your body functioning efficiently and in optimal condition, so that you can get on with your life.

A proven approach delivering real results

At THE Medical, we have developed a unique three-stage chiropractic treatment methodology. Our first objective is to relieve your pain, before reconditioning and optimising your body. The aim is for your body to be restored to health, and to remain at a state of optimal performance, transforming suffering into ‘total health’.

Stage 1: Relieve

The aim of the first stage is to diagnose the problem and begin a programme of treatment to relieve suffering. This is a cyclical process of ‘assess, treat, and review’. Your chiropractor will work with you until your symptoms have resolved.


The initial objective is to identify the cause of your symptoms. The chiropractor will begin by undertaking a thorough history and examination to diagnose your problem. They will explain the diagnosis to you, and discuss the range of treatment options that are available.


Once your problem has been diagnosed, the focus shifts towards treatment. Your chiropractor will write a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. The longer you have had symptoms, the longer it may take to improve. Your chiropractor will advise you of a likely recovery time and how to minimise the chances of the problem reoccurring. The best results are achieved by sticking to your treatment plan and listening to the advice from your chiropractor.

You will be provided with a printed copy of your plan to take away with you.

Treatment reaction

A small number of patients may experience discomfort after their treatment. This is to be expected and is an integral part of the natural healing process. The reaction is an adaption by the body to change and may only last a few hours or days.

If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact your chiropractor.


This completes the first stage. Your chiropractor may suggest some helpful tips for maintenance and prevention of further problems. At this point, it is your decision whether to consider a more proactive approach.

Stage 2: Recondition

If you decide you want to take a more proactive approach, we will work with you and devise a focused, tailored plan to meet your specific needs. The overall aim is to improve your body strength, flexibility, stability, balance and range of movement. Your chiropractor may introduce a number of different methods to achieve your aims including core stability, exercise therapy and rehabilitation treatments. They may also draw from disciplines such as Pilates and yoga, to improve your body strength and function.

Stage 3: Optimisation

The focus has now switched to maintenance - we don't want your symptoms to come back! The aim will be to monitor your condition, maintain your body’s optimal function, prevent any setbacks and control any symptoms effectively if they arise.
