The Benefits of X-Rays

An X-ray is likely to provide important information that will direct treatment and/or referral options for the patient in any of the following cases:

  • If the patient has had long-standing pain that has not responded to or resolved with previous health care treatment.
  • If the patient has sustained a significant traumatic injury, as a bone may be broken or a joint may be dislocated.
  • If the patient is over age 50 and has experienced any type of trauma, even a minor one.
  • If an infection may be causing the patient's pain.
  • If any type of joint disease is suspected, such as arthritis causing joint pain.
  • Anyone who has been diagnosed with or who may be at risk for osteoporosis.
  • For most patients over 65 years of age.
  • If any significant disease is suspected, such as cancer or a possible tumour.

It is important for your chiropractor to gather as much information as possible about your pain, so that the most precise diagnosis can be made.

Why us?

We open early and close late

The Medical has X-ray facilities as part of a network of healthcare centers, to aid a speedy diagnosis and commencement of treatment.

It is not necessary for every patient to have an X-ray as part of chiropractic treatment. As a general guideline, an X-ray is indicated if it is likely to inform the type of treatment recommended for the patient, as some chiropractors find it a useful aid in determining where to adjust your spine. X-rays also have the ability to show problems with the spine where the patient has no symptoms.

An X-ray at The Medical costs just £65.

Our healthcare centres are conveniently located across the UK and easily accessible to work around your busy schedule. We open 7am to 9pm on weekdays, and also provide weekend appointments, so that you can be seen as soon as possible.

Quality assured healthcare

The Medical is registered with the government's healthcare watchdog, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who assesses whether a healthcare centre is safe, caring and responsive to the patients' needs. This means that we are regulated to the same standards as your NHS GP or hospital, so you know you're in safe hands.


We have been awarded the 'Clinic Management Quality Mark' and the 'Patient Practice Quality Mark' by the General Chiropractic Council for clinical excellence and consistently exceeding our customers' expectations. The Medical is also accredited by all major insurance providers.

Award-winning chiropractors

All of our chiropractors are registered members of the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) and  the General Chiropractic Council (GCC), so you can be assured you are receiving the best treatment from highly qualified experts. 

Our practitioners undergo a strict clinical assessment before working with The Medical and receive regular clinical professional development. They are also  experienced in making referrals to other clinical experts as appropriate.
