Welcome to Chimes Chiropractic
Terry Chimes D.C., a registered Chiropractor, first established the practice in 1994 in South Woodford. With the help of years of excellent service from a dedicated staff the clinic has grown rapidly and is now one of the busiest in Europe.
The aim of the practice has always been to change the way people think about their health. Not to ‘learn to live with their pain’ but to find out how to rid themselves of their pain, and then keep things that way.
The Back Pain Centre is now one of the top Chiropractic Clinics in Europe. How can The Back Pain Centre make such a claim? The reason is that the Chimes organisation also has a consulting department where Chiropractors from all over Europe attend seminars run by Chimes Consulting so they may learn best practice and how to run a practice in such a way that it offers its patients exactly what they are looking for.
Often other Chiropractors from the UK and Europe will attend our practice and shadow our Chiropractors as they treat their patients. Of course this is only ever done with the patients consent but it represents a fantastic opportunity for visiting Chiropractors to see with their own eyes how a great practice runs and treats its patients.
Our East London practice has over 24,000 patient files, employ 4 Doctors of Chiropractic (2 Male & 2 Female) and 10 Front Desk Staff. The practice has on-site X-ray facilities so there is no waiting – everything is completed at the practice. Typically a new patient will undergo a private one-to-one consultation with the Chiropractor followed by an examination which includes neurological, orthopaedic and blood pressure exams (approx. 62 tests in all). These will be followed by an X-ray, if it is deemed necessary. The whole process lasts between 30-45 minutes.
Once this has been completed the Chiropractor will study the case and the patient will be invited to return on the next day for their Report of Findings (again approx. 30 minutes). At this verbal report the Chiropractor will explain everything in detail to the patient, show; explain their X-rays and give the answers to the 4 major questions that are normally on a patients mind:
- What’s Wrong?
- Can it be fixed?
- How long will it take?
- How much will it cost?
Then the patient can ask any questions they may have and decide whether or not to go ahead with a treatment schedule – there is no obligation.
The patient and their spouse are also invited to attend a Health Care Class which is included in the price of the 1st Visit and Report of Findings. The Health Class is held at a restaurant at 7pm and lasts 45 minutes, typically 10 Patients attend with their spouse/friend (20 people in all). At the end of the class the patient and their spouse are given a good quality vegetarian meal and the Chiropractors will mingle with the attendees answering any questions they may have.
