What a spinal health specialist has to say.
Why Choose Body In Balance?
We asses your ability to heal, as it is often not ‘the pain’ that is your real problem.
We are the only clinic in the UK to do a combination of 3 tests that could really, once and for all, discover why you are still sick and still in pain despite being on multiple drugs, and having seen many therapists.
We are one of the few clinics, maybe the only that uses the protocols developed by Dr Bob Rakowski for dealing with chronic health conditions.
We are the first clinic in the UK to offer the True Cellular Detox program (TCD) which allows your cells to rejuvenate and therefore heal.
As metabolic and spinal specialists the majority of our clients come to us with chronic pain no one else can help, back pain, neck pain or persistent headaches. Most people searching the internet for a local chiropractor, osteopath or a pain relief solution want some quick answers and assurance that they are not going to waste time and money.
With that in mind our full New Patient Consultation is free if we find we can’t help. In such cases we will then refer you to where you can get help. Call us now on 01707 662 704, and book your full, no risk, New Patient Consultation. Our clinic is in Brookmans Park (between Potters Bar and Hatfield).
How far would you travel to get the best treatment?
It is a humbling experience when patients place their health and well-being in our hands and it often surprises us the distance that some of our patients travel to get what they consider to be the best treatment they can find. We have people traveling from South London, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk
Currently we have patients traveling over 100 miles round trip to stay healthy. Whilst we are unquestionably flattered by this more normally our patients come from closer by in the Barnet, Finchley, Hatfield, Brookmans Park and surrounding areas.
What to expect
As you come through the door of the clinic you will be greeted with a friendly smile from one of our receptionists. We realise that many new patients are in pain or nervous or both so we ensure the first thing you recieve is a warm welcome.
It’s a simple but effective form which is available on line so if you want to save a little time at the clinic you can download and fill in before hand. Although it is a simple form don’t worry. We will be on hand to help you if you need it.
The forms will then be passed to the receptionist, or straight to the Specialist. You will then be shown to the consultation room.
The consultation itself will usually consist of five parts:
First the chiropractor will ask you a series of questions about your current and past health and take notes.
Second is the examination, which usually requires either the removal of some clothing, or changing into an examination gown.
A series of tests will be carried out to determine the cause/causes of your condition and to confirm if the chiropractor can help. The examination will be appropriate to your case, and typically involves postural evaluation, checking of relevant joints, muscles and nerves. Your heart, lungs and abdomen may be examined if indicated.
A special part of the examination would be a ‘scan’ of your back muscles, known as a spinal electromyography (or sEMG for short). This is similar to the ECG tests doctors do for your heart. It is completely non-invasive and painless.
After examination the chiropractor will explain the most immediately relevant findings and may suggest some preliminary treatment.
The second visit typically lasts 20-30 minutes.
The Doctor of Chiropractic will re-asses the problem areas and provide a more thorough Report of Findings, and recommended treatment plan.
Treatment will go ahead as indicated.
By now most people are feeling the benefits of chiropractic care, and the doctor will have a good understanding of how your body will best respond.
Treatment is now quick, but highly skilled and specific to you, typically only taking 10-15 minutes of your time.
Certain techniques however do take longer and appropriate times will be booked.
If you have any further queries regarding Body in Balance, or if you are a new client and would like to make a booking with us, please call us.
Pain Free Patients Testimonials
Dr Chris got straight to the problem with my back.
Very effective with customized exercises to do in between visits. Very proactive with advice via email, websites as well as during visits to the clinic.
Amazed by how important health in the back muscles is directly linked to overall health of the body. Certainly recommend clinic and team working there.
Mike, Brookmans Park
Chris has been very good over many years sorting out neck and back pains telling me how it all works what to eat and how I should train to keep fit always straight to the point of the pain I will continue to see him every month or more if need be.
Thomas, Butcher, Brookmans Park
Hi there, must say that Dr Chris straightened me out both physically and structurally after a fall – his spoke to me in a most pleasant manner whilst my bones were “cracked” into place – his method of contorting me into different positions worked – I heard crack, crack, crack and then felt my body relax and fall into place.
I would recommend Dr Chris and the practice to anybody who has an ailment (or even if they haven’t) because he has ways of enabling you to look after the body that you have. Would wholeheartedly recommend this clinic and its staff to all who ask!!! So ask me – please!
The pain relief centre is just what it says. A very professional and friendly team with the cleanest facilities I have ever seen, including the changing rooms and gowns.
Dr Chris does only what is needed and won’t waste your time or money. Through the weekly communications available, the clinic has become a great learning resource for me. Offering advice on alternative therapies and exercises that help to repair and keep fit, well and healthy. I haven’t taken a painkiller since my first visit.
I first came to the Finchley Chiropractic Clinic in 1999, with upper back pain. I now come to the clinic for regular check ups as Dr Pickard deals with general lifestyle, which helps establish good habits.
I generally come in to the clinic feeling OK, am greeted without fail by friendly staff and then see Dr Pickard. His treatment is painless, and the effects are immediate, I feel benefit each time and leave feeling better than when I came in.
