About WhiteTree Chiropractic in Edinburgh

My name is Blackwood – so why not call my practice White Tree…?
But there are other reasons: a tree has a trunk – its core from which all other branches grow. Just like your spine is the key bony structure providing the stability from which all other bony structures can move.1
The nerve ‘trunks’ which transport nerve impulse to the brain are known as ‘white matter’. The brain has more ‘grey matter’ – but Grey Tree Chiro didn’t work so well. And well, we work through the spine to affect the brain… So White Tree it is…

What to expect:

1st visit: Complimentary Consultation – an opportunity to come to the clinic, meet the team and spend 15 minutes with the Doctor of Chiropractic to discover if we can help you. You will be asked to attend early to complete the paperwork and the Doctor of Chiropractic will review your health history with you.

2nd visit: 45 min Examination, including a thorough chiropractic, structural and muscular examination, with the use of heart rate variability, myovision muscular activation testing and structural analysis. All designed to give a subjective and objective appreciation of your health.

3rd visit: Report of findings, 30 mins, where the Doctor of Chiropractic will take you through the results, and explain what can be done to help, how long it is likely to take and what will be expected of you to attain the best results.

Adjustments: each subsequent visit is 15 mins. During each visit you will receive a combination of three techniques, Network Spinal Analysis, Chiropractic adjustments and Cranial Release Technique. This will be combined with targeted muscle release, both trigger point therapy and muscle release stretches.

Home work: You will be expected to complete specific exercises, both positional exercises and stretches. We will also discuss other complimentary techniques, such as breathing techniques and meditation as necessary.

Progress checks: will be completed at the end of your initial phase of care to show the subjective and objective changes.
