What to Expect

Your initial consultation is where we gather all the relevant information about you including your health and medical history, lifestyle (diet, exercise, stress levels, occupation, etc.) and health goals. We take a thorough history of you as an individual and then proceed to accurately assess your posture using weighing scales and digital posture equipment (Posture Screen). A full examination including orthopaedic, neurological and Chiropractic assessment of your spine and extremities allows us to gather all the relevant biomechanical information about you. If x-rays are indicated from our history and examination findings then we have the ability to take on-site pictures of your spine. These are processed on the same day and we then study them using digital analysis software (Posture Ray).

On your next visit which is called the Report of Findings, we inform you on your current spinal health status with emphasis on your posture, spinal curves and the general health of your spinal soft tissues (discs, ligaments and muscles). If we can help you to improve your spinal health, we will recommend a program of Chiropractic care including postural, exercise and lifestyle advice. If you are happy to proceed with the recommended plan then we start the program with your first Chiropractic spinal adjustments. We then schedule your appointments for the duration of your recommended plan and at the end of your plan we carry out an in-depth re-examination where we record the improvements made in your posture and spinal health. Further recommendations and advise are given at this stage accordingly.

Phases of a Spinal Care Program at Advanced Spinal Care

There are three separate phases of care that we offer at Advanced Spinal Care in order to offer you the optimal service in spinal health.

1 The Initial Phase is directed at improving the motion of your spinal joints, reducing any joint inflammation, associated muscle spasm and nerve irritation. Most of this phase requires regular specific Chiropractic spinal adjustments although some gentle stretching and strengthening exercises may be employed as well. Initial care normally lasts between 4-8 weeks and is case dependent.

2 The Rehabilitive Phase is directed at improving the strength and flexibility of the soft tissues of the spine and the core. Chiropractic spinal adjustments are still necessary during this phase but are given with less regularity than the initial phase. Exercise and traction programs are given to the patient to do in our clinic and at home and the regularity of visits is case dependent.

3 The Maintenance Phase as suggested by its name, is directed at maintaining all the spinal improvements that have been accomplished in the initial and rehabilitative phases respectively. The regularity of maintenance adjustments is case dependent.
We perform re-examinations of your posture and spine after every 12 visits of care to show you your progress and for us to monitor your ongoing spinal health.

Common Presentations and Conditions

One of the philosophical principles of Chiropractic is that the body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism; Chiropractic adjustments to the spine reduce nerve irritation which improves functioning of the body as a whole. However, many people who first present to our clinic are suffering with pain and these commonly include the following:
Headaches, migraines, balance problems, neck and low back pain, sciatica, shoulder/elbow/wrist pains, hip/knee/ankle and foot pains, arthritis, disc herniation and degeneration, tendonitis, ligament injury, sacro-iliac pains, jaw problems, joint pain, fatigue, whiplash, trapped nerves, scoliosis, kyphosis, groin pain and misaligned posture.

I hurt my back whilst diving off a pier on holiday and suffered pains for about 6 weeks. I eventually contacted The Thames Clinic and from the very first session I experienced great relief. Very friendly and professional service .

I've suffered with severe neck and shoulder pain for about 12 years and have tried various treatments, including physiotherapy and other chiropractors, but after just 2 visits with Nick I already feel some relief. He is very friendly and professional and I will certainly continue to visit this clinic.

I suffered a severe sequestered herniated disc in my lower back. After being turned away by a couple of health professionals due to the severity of the injury, Tracy and Nick thankfully decided to treat me. Within a couple of treatments my quality of life proved dramatically - I was able to sleep properly again, sit for more than 15 mins and the sciatic nerve pain began to diminish. I cannot praise Tracey and Nick enough for their professionalism, expertise and kindness. I am now back to normal and enjoying life to the full thanks to them - no surgery, no needles - just two magnificent Chiropractors who knew what they were doing.

Second visit to rupurt. I won't lie yes it is a little bit painful, but I am a bit of a baby. I have already started to notice some improvement in my shoulder. Highly recommended this clinic.

My family and I have been seen by Rupert for the past 15 years. Everytime I've been to see him with a specific issue he helps alleviate it instantly. I've suffered from lower back pain, shoulder and neck pain over the years and through Ruperts help I've always managed to get back to my normal self in a matter of weeks. The clinic is clean, tidy and everyone is very friendly, the flexible appointment times are also really helpful for those in 9-5 jobs. I can't reccomend the Thames Clinic enough.

My teenage son suffers from very bad migraine. Rupert has changed his life and he now has them a lot less than he did when we first started there. Highly recommend.

Being a Personal Trainer and triathlete by trade I would like to say that Rupert Simpson of Thames clinic is perhaps the most knowledgeable health professional I have met, and I have such faith in his abilities that I regularly refer my valued clients to him. I decided to book an initial consultation with Rupert back in December of 2011 due to various medical conditions which no Dr’s or specialists could help me with. I suffered from lower back pain particularly in the early mornings to a degree that it would force me out of bed to stretch it out. After about 12 sessions with Rupert my Back pain is cured! I also suffered from misalignment in my upper neck which was causing tension and lead to me suffering from tinnitus, which dr’s will tell you there is no cure, but they wrong , I found the cure…. Rupert. I also suffered from anxiety and panic attacks early in February 2011, which trust me is mentally and physically crippling, to such a degree that I had to withdrawal from all my Triathlon races in 2011. After mentioning this to Rupert he suggested we try some acupuncture, and again he cured me. I haven’t suffered another panic attack since. Now being in good health again, I decided to get back into my Triathlon races. I recently competed in the Eton Sprint Triathlon 2012 and managed to get personal bests in every discipline and finished 11th in my age group (Under 30’s). I plan to compete in more races this year and qualify for Team GB in 2013. I owe a good deal of my success to Rupert and his friendly staff of Thames clinic. So, whether you a sedentary person suffering from aggravating pain and medical conditions, or an athlete looking for that extra edge to keep you above the competition, give Rupert Simpson and Thames Clinic Staines a go, and I guarantee you’ll never look back!
