F.A.Q's

Is Chiropractic covered under private health insurance?

Our chiropractors are recognised by most health insurance companies including BUPA (Dr Nigel Corbett only) AXA/PPP, Norwich Union, BHSF and many others. Most insurance schemes will reimburse chiropractic fees. Some are 'open access' (no referral necessary) and others require either GP or consultant referral before your fees for chiropractic care can be claimed. Please contact your insurance provider for information regarding the reimbursement or fees.

Why do joints pop when they are adjusted? Will it hurt?

When two surfaces of the joint are moved apart rapidly, as happens in a chiropractic adjustment, there is a chance of pressure in the joint space. This may sometimes cause a bubble of gass to 'pop' - but this sound is not significant and does not hurt. Skilled spinal manipulation should not be painful.
