What You Can Expect

What should you expect from an initial consultation and treatment at the BackCare Clinic?

 Your first consultation will last up to 1 hour.

Details of your problem will be taken, as they present at the time. Questions will be asked about the nature of your pain and how it affects your life, a history of previous episodes, your general health and medication taken. Also details of any previous treatment or surgery you may have received.

The principals of the unique treatment on offer at the BackCare Clinic will be thoroughly explained to you. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you wish at this time and at any other time you like during your consultation.

You will need to be examined. It will be necessary to undress to your underwear but generally you will not be required to remove trousers.  For ladies leggings, loose trousers or track bottoms are ideal and will make you feel more comfortable.

You are very welcome to bring a friend or relative to your visits if you wish.

Once the history and examination has been carried out a diagnosis will be made and a treatment plan explained to you. You will be given information on your likely problem and how your treatment will progress. How often you need to come in for treatment and what the treatment will cost. If your condition is best served by treatment with other therapists you will be advised accordingly.

It will be assumed that when you attend for a consultation, you have come for treatment of that problem, and therefore your consent is implied. However, if you have come for a free consultation and advice only, or at any stage become unhappy in proceeding towards treatment, then please make that clear. You are welcome to stop your consultation at any stage if you have any concerns about your treatment.

Prior to leaving you will be given tips on what you can expect following your first treatment. This may include the application of ice, certain activities or positions to avoid and possibly exercises to do at home.

What happens when I return for a follow-up treatment?

The focus of follow-up visits is the treatment itself as distinct from the diagnostic process involved in the first visit.

You will be asked about your reaction to your initial treatment and the progress of your pain.

You will be asked to undress in a similar manner to your first visit and usually treatment will proceed in accordance with your initial treatment plan.

However, you will be constantly re-examined and your treatment may vary accordingly. Any changes to your initial treatment plan will be explained to you.

Once more, you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you wish at this time and at any other time you like during your consultation.

What our Clients Say…

"Very simple and non invasive treatment and haven’t had a twinge since!"

– Alice S (Age 27)

"I have been to Osteopaths and Chiropractors since the age of 19"

“I have been to Osteopaths and Chiropractors since the age of 19 with very little success. If only I had come across Nic then it would have been a different story.

Flexibility and straightness are key to my job, Decorating and Sports Dressage.

He has improved both of these more than I ever thought possible.”

– Cheryl G (Age 47)

"Pain removed after 3 visits."

“I am a 39 year old male that is on his feet all day at work, and had resigned myself to the fact that my back had clearly had its day and I was in for pain and discomfort for the rest of my life! How wrong I was.

I visited Nic 3 times, he treated me, taught me how to look after my back and how it works, it’s the best thing I have done in ages! Since seeing Nic I have not had any pain or discomfort and I actually feel 10 years younger…Read More

"At 36 my Doctor told me there was nothing more the NHS could do"

“At 36 my Doctor told me there was nothing more the NHS could do for my mobility issues and that I would just have to manage as best I could with Pain killers. I had suffered a Herniated Disc in my lower Back some six months before and had received various NHS treatments, none of which had worked. Nic at the Back Clinic gave me my life back, after only a few sessions, I could walk, bend and show dogs again, something I had been told by various people wouldn’t be possible in the future. I was actually pain free again for the first time in a year and I could do all that I wished with my life. Without Nic’s expert treatment my life would be a fraction of what it is today. Thanks for fixing me once again.”

John H (age 39)

"Finally I have found something that works!"

“Finally I have found something that works! After suffering with chronic acute exasperated back pain since I was 16, nerve damage and having two major trauma’s to my back I was in complete despair. I found myself on a large dosage of pain medications, anti inflammatory and muscle relaxers. I had lost my job and spent 4 months in bed unable to move. My massage therapist recommended to me the Back Clinic. so I thought why not give it a try. After just one session I was totally stunned at the results I not only felt but could see with my back and my posture. I can still remember to this day my utter amazement when I walked for the first time after my back had been gently manipulated. This is a miracle and I still say that today. The pain has gone, I can move more freely and I can be active again…Read More

I felt I had grown a couple of inches

I am a 24 year old female Soldier and currently deployed in Afghanistan. Due to my work responsibilities I have to carry a lot of weight on my back, as you can imagine this causes a lot of stress to it. After visiting Nic in Eye I felt I had grown a couple of inches and the relief i felt afterwards was amazing. Highly recommended to anyone with back problems. Thank you.

As the result of a road accident

I was fortunate enough to find Nic Aldous when I moved to Suffolk. Having suffered acute neck and back pain as a result of a road accident I was desperate to find treatment to make my life bearable. How lucky was I! After only 4 sessions my movement was so much better and my pain reduced by 80%… Read More

I suffered for some time

I suffered for some time with neck and back pain which was causing me constant headaches, I now go for treatment when I feel it is needed to keep pain free.

Emma R

Nic really got me straightened out – literally!!

“After years of struggling with a lop sided posture with one hip visibly higher than the other and regular bouts of low back pain, four visits to Nic had me standing straight and tall and my back has given me no further problems. I will definitely be attending Nic’s back pain clinic for check up sessions to keep me pain free from now on.”
