If you’ve been suffering from aches and pains for an extended period, it may be time to stop ignoring the problem and seek professional help. A chiropractor can help you get to the root of the problem and ease discomfort, enabling you to get on with your life pain free. In Bury St Edmunds, there are no better chiropractors then Fornham Chiropractic Clinic.


How to choose a chiropractor

You’ve made the decision to try chiropractic, but how do you go about choosing the right practitioner for you? Here are some important things to consider:


Becoming a chiropractor requires a great deal of hard work and training and the profession is a highly respected one. In order to qualify, an aspiring chiropractor must be awarded with a Masters degree in Chiropractic at university, which means five years of full-time study. To ensure that practitioners have the proper qualifications and training, the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) regulates the industry and sets high standards for chiropractors to adhere to in their treatment of patients.

All UK chiropractors are required by law to register with the GCC so that patients can be sure they will receive safe and professional treatment. To check that a chiropractor in your area is on the register, you can visit the GCC website and find a complete list of qualified clinicians.


Any established chiropractor will have years of experience under their belt, which also means they will have treated a large number of patients. These patients have done the hard bit for you, as thanks to them you are able to make an informed decision based on what they have to say about the care they received. Use social media and search engines to find honest reviews about local chiropractors and use these to get a better idea of what a chiropractor is like, how the treatment process works and what you can expect from your first visit. A clinic or individual practitioner with plenty of good reviews is one you can be confident in booking an appointment with.

Convenience and availability

It’s all well and good finding the perfect chiropractor a few towns over, but if you’ll be visiting them a couple of times a week, how practical is that going to be for you? To make your life easier, choose the best chiropractor nearby and make sure it’s one that is convenient for you to visit, whether this means that there’s private parking available or good public transport links. You should also check that your chosen clinic can book you in for an appointment without delay.



Questions to ask your chiropractor

Get a head start by asking all the right questions during your first visit:

  • What will the treatment involve?
  • How long should it take to see results, and what kind of end results can I expect from my treatment?
  • How often should I be visiting for best results?
  • Will I need additional care from other healthcare professionals?
  • Are there any lifestyle changes I could make to complement my treatment?
