Is Treatment Right for You?
Am I too old for treatment?
Treatment is safe for ages. By tailoring treatments accordingly, we can safely treat all age groups, including those with age-related disorders such as osteoporosis.
Can I have treatment if I am pregnant?
Yes. All treatment at Dynamic Health is safe extremely safe during pregnancy, however in some instances we advise deferring treatment until the end of the 1st trimester.
Is treatment appropriate for babies and children?
Yes. Both babies and children can benefit from chiropractic care.
Just as in adults, babies and children can be affected by problems with their muscles, joints or nerves. This can cause existing symptoms or predispose to problems later in life. Chiropractic care for children and babies will be gentle and has been shown to be safe and effective. For more information please visit our Babies and Children page.
I’ve had chiropractic/ osteopathy/ physiotherapy before and it’s not helped, is there anything you can do?
Every practitioner treats differently, even within professions. Our extensive experience, combined with our unique and comprehensive approach means we often find success treating patients for whom other therapies have failed.
“I suffered chronic lower back pain making it difficult for me to play golf. Past experience with previous chiropractors and physios had left me fairly cynical about their ability to solve my problem so my expectations were low. But thanks to the treatment and the exercises I was given the condition of my back has improved significantly and is gradually getting stronger. I can now play golf regularly and increasingly without post round stiffness and pain. I would absolutely recommend treatment.
I’ve got arthritis, had surgery or been told that I just have to live with it, is there anything you can do?
Unfortunately patients with long-standing or complex complaints are often told that there is nothing that can be done for them. However, this is not always the case. We have seen many, many patients (including those with arthritis, after surgeries or with chronic histories of pain) who have been told just that, but with a thorough assessment, targeted treatments and a little hard work it’s very rare that we do not see improvement.
“… My only hesitation before attending was whether my problem was possible to fix as I’d suffered for a long time. However after treatment most of the time I’m completely free of pain… I feel the treatment has been very successful and I would recommend it to anyone.
What conditions do you treat?
We treat a range of muscle, joint and nerve conditions including:
- Neck and back pain

Your 1st Appointment
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
No. A doctor’s referral isn’t necessary although we do find that many of our patients are referred for treatment by their GP’s.
All of our patients are initially assessed by a Chiropractor who is a ‘primary care practitioner’ which means that he/she is specifically trained to provide first-contact for a patient with an undiagnosed health concern. The chiropractor can then determine which treatment will be most suitable and effective.
Do you take insurance patients?
Yes. We are recognised by most insurance companies including AXA PPP and Bupa. If you are not sure whether or not you are covered call and speak to one of our friendly team.
Will I be required to remove my clothing at my appointment?
No, not if you would prefer not to.
Generally, we do ask that patients remove their outer clothing for the initial assessment so we can more clearly assess the whole body. However, for those who do not feel comfortable undressing we can perform an assessment with the patient clothed. Please mention your preference to one of our friendly staff on your initial visit.
What should I wear for treatment?
Comfortable, loose-fitting, clothing is recommended e.g. sportswear.
Where are you based?
The Dynamic Health clinic is on Clarendon Road in St Helier, but we also run a Satellite clinic from Castle Quay medical practice. Click here for more information.
What does treatment involve?
Treatment is tailored specifically for you, your condition and your goals. It may include chiropractic, osteopathy, physiotherapy, soft tissue therapies, taping, deep tissue massage, dry needling, nutritional support or ergonomic advice. We also provide exercise rehabilitation in the form of home programs or small-group classes in our onsite studio with our expert trainers.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you will need is conditioned by various factors including your age, lifestyle, the type of problem you have and how long you’ve had it. As part of your ‘Report of Findings’ we will explain how many treatments you are likely to need and the estimated timescale.
How much treatment, help and advice you ultimately receive is completely up to you.
How much does it cost?
We like to keep things simple. We don’t sell packages or programs. You will only pay for treatment you receive. See the pricing page for details.
Does it work?
Yes, we have an excellent success rate with treatment for a range of complaints but don’t just take our word for it, visit our testimonial page to hear what our patients have to say.
Does it hurt?
Patients may, occasionally, experience some soreness, stiffness or aching, just as they might after exercise. Soreness is typically mild and usually fades within 24 hours.
“…I was initially worried it may hurt to have treatment especially as I was already in so much pain but after the initial treatment I had no hesitations at all...
Do I have to be ‘clicked’?
No. Joint adjustment is often a primary treatment of choice due to its effectiveness and safety.
However, we also use a range of effective treatment strategies and can tailor the treatment to your preferences. So, if you would prefer not to be adjusted (or ‘clicked’) that is not a problem.
What is the difference between osteopathy, chiropractic and physiotherapy?
All 3 professions treat the neuromusculoskeletal system (nerves, muscles and joints) however their individual approach to diagnosis and treatment may differ. The extent to which practitioners differ is extremely variable, both within and between professions. At dynamic health we understand the benefits each profession has to offer and simply aim to use the most effective diagnostic and treatment techniques to best help our patients.

What is the difference between acupuncture and dry needling?
Both of these techniques use the insertion of fine needles. The main difference is that acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese medicine (and needles are inserted along the ‘meridian system’) while dry needling is based on western neuroanatomy (and needles are generally inserted into specific anatomical structures e.g. muscles and ligaments). Interestingly, many of the common needle locations are shared by both disciplines.
