FAQ & Reviews

How Often Should I Come For Treatment?

Some acute conditions respond well to daily treatment, especially necessary when in severe pain.  Chronic issues respond better to treatments when spaced out at 2 or 3 times per week, this tapers down to once per week then once every other week as the condition begins to improve.

How Long Before I Start To Notice Improvement?

Some patients feel some reduction in pain after their first treatment, usually over the next 12 hours.  Sometimes no improvement will be felt for a few sessions, however, this doesn’t mean the condition is not improving.  Treatments are cumulative and results are often noticed after 3 or 4 sessions.

How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

It really depends on the condition and length of time it has been a problem.  For an acute condition, 4 to 6 sessions may be enough. Conditions that have a more chronic nature may need 6 to 12 sessions and sometimes more.  More severe conditions may stabilise in this time but are likely to require an element of ongoing care to keep the pain under control.

I Have Scans (X-Rays or MRI) Should I Bring Them?

Yes.  This can be extremely helpful to better understand the issue. If there is any uncertainty around previous findings or what the reports or scans mean, the practitioner will be more than happy to help you gain a better understanding as well.

Will My Insurance Cover Treatment?

Most patients self-fund treatment, however, some patients which do have insurance are able to claim various amounts of the treatment cost back (depending on premiums and a number of other unique personal circumstances).  It is always best to speak to the insurance company to make them aware you are seeking treatment.

Does Treatment Hurt & What Does it Feel Like?

The treatments we have are all designed to be as safe & effective as possible. Laser will give a “warm, soothing feeling” whilst treatment is being done. Spinal Decompression gently stretches the spine, again a treatment that patients describe as pleasant when compared with other more aggressive treatments. Spinal Impulse Adjusting is a more direct treatment that can sometimes be quite powerful, however the treatment strength is always aligned to the patients tolerance.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Therapeutic Laser has been used by healthcare providers across the globe for over 20 years.  There have been very few side effects ever reported.  Occasionally older injuries or syndromes may become aggravated for a couple of days as the healing response becomes more active post treatment. Spinal decompression when done correctly is also extremely safe as is the Spinal Impulse Adjusting, however these two can sometimes give a little post treatment soreness which usually clears quickly to make way for relief.

How Long Does Each Treatment Take?

Typically an individual treatment can last between 4 and 15 minutes however it may be necessary to combine therapies, in which cases please allow a little more time. (there is no extra cost for these)

Has Effectiveness Been Scientifically Demonstrated?

There are thousands of studies that have been published on the clinical effectiveness of Therapeutic Laser.  Many more on Spinal Decompression, and Our Spinal Impulse Adjusting instrument has been the subject of much research since the early 2000’s.

Individually these treatments have significant volumes of research. We have found, that by combining these therapies in an informed way, we can achieve even greater results.

I came and visited the clinic after suffering a injury to my spine, which occurred a year prior to my visit. My mobility was extremely limited , and even though I was taking very strong medication for my pain management, I was still in severe pain. I have been attending the clinic being seen my Micheal and attending twice a week for a month now, I have seen a tremendous change in my mobility and pain management. I was extremely disheartened when I first attended the clinic believing I would never walk again without pain. I am actually using my legs again instead of solely relying on my crutch. I look forward to my next eight sessions remaining, and would recommend this treatment option to anyone who is sick of being given medication and living in pain and restricted mobile from a spinal injury.read more

Michael has been my consultant for almost 3 years now. He's always been professional and has always managed to accommodate me at short notice. Michael originally gave me free advice and also visited my local gym to assist me with new mitigation techniques. I couldn't ask for a better service, would highly recommended.read more

Michael started to look after me when i had rather resigned myself to agony.I had tried a local physio for 4 sessions.I had tried a local osteopath.Nothing seemed to work.Michael had a diagnostic session with me which indicated two slipped disks.No wonder I was popping painkillers every 4 hours. We did 2 sessions a week for many months.But the pain relief started after session 3.Michael is calm,professional,caring and genuinely concerned for his patients. For me he has quite simply been a (pain free) life saver.read more

A highly detailed review of my anatomy and the problems I have faced, currently deal with, and may encounter in the future if not treated with the correct advice. MJF Osteopathy provided all the right answers and I feel improvement after one session. Will certainly be utilisng this service again on the path to realigning my body. Thanks very much.read more

I went to the Mayfair Clinic for treatment on my frozen neck, a few months back. I woke up with it, and could barely move my neck, the pain was so sharp and severe, if you have ever had it you know how terrible it is, just driving over a bump on the road felt excruciating. On my first appointment I was fully assessed and treated with laser directly on my neck and the surrounding areas, it was completely painless, it felt a little warm and very soothing, which was a relief. I felt better the next morning, however as my pain was so intense it took 4 sessions for me to gain almost full mobility. I now go once every 2 months or so, just to make sure it doesn’t come back, and I feel great! I highly recommend this treatment if you are in pain!! Great patient care and just so relieved with the outcome.read more

Having studied with Michael for 4 years and treated patients with him for two I can testify to his attention to detail and almost encyclopaedic knowledge of anatomy. His understanding of body mechanics are second to none and crucially he strives to produce real changes to patients which they can both feel and see.read more
