Sports injuries

Suffering from runner's knee, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow or some other sports-related injury? Amateur or professional, we can get behind and treat the cause of your injury, rather than just treating the injury itself.

Wear & tear arthritis

We cannot reverse any degeneration that may have taken place in your joints. But with regular adjustment and manipulation we can help you resist further wear and tear, reduce pain and stay mobile.

Our Treatments

Evidence-based research shows clearly that Chiropractic treatment is successful in treating a wide range of conditions.

Chiropractic Adjustments

We rely heavily on hands-on procedures to diagnose structural and functional problems, and we use manipulation techniques known as 'adjustments' to treat these areas.

Also known as dry needling or western style acupuncture, we use this technique to release spasmed muscles for pain relief.

To support your recovery we use several soft-tissue techniques including massage, heat and ice. This helps to relax a patient's muscles before a manipulation and also to speed recovery whilst between treatments.

We have an in house Physiotherapist also available to assist with your care. Physio can work really well in conjunction with our other treatments especially when a more detailed rehabilitation training plan is required.

Podiatry appointments also available to book not only for biomechanical assessments but also for routine foot care including ingrown toenails, callouses, verrucas, diabetic assessments and vascular assessments.

Appointment Information & FAQs

Appointment types and fees – Aka what do we do and how much does it cost?

Initial consultation (1hr- £66*) – The first step along your road to a happy, pain free life. Your consultation will begin with a thorough discussion of the problem you’d like us to solve, as well as your medical history and lifestyle. Following this you and your chiropractor will undertake an in-depth examination of all the muscles, joints and nerves likely to be involved, together these will lead you to a diagnosis. You will then sit with your chiropractor and discuss your diagnosis, what exactly has happened and why, as well as what treatments can be undertaken and how long you can expect to take to improve. Once you thoroughly understand what is ailing you, your first treatment will begin (in all but the occasional case where some kind of further investigation such as blood tests, X-rays, MRI etc are needed). During your first treatment there will also be a discussion of things you should be doing to help your pain ease as quickly as possible.

Follow up appointments (30 minutes- Chiro Treatments- £45* Physiotherapy Sessions- £50*) – Shorter than the initial consultation but still giving lots of time to thoroughly track and treat your complaint. Each follow up appointment will consist of a conversation to establish what has changed since the previous appointment and a re-examination, then a full 20-25 minutes of treatment will be undertaken. Follow up appointments are also where you will be prescribed home rehabilitation to empower you to improve your own musculoskeletal health.

*Concession pricing of £55 and £40 is also available for OAP/Students (and the unemployed)

Your treatment is longer than the average chiropractors, and a little more expensive*, why is that?

At SLS we strongly believe that doing things right takes time. We take a whole-body approach, using not just our chiropractic adjustments, but combining our chiropractic techniques with acupuncture, detailed home rehabilitation and a plethora of muscular relaxation techniques. We also reassess thoroughly at each follow up and take the time to alter our approach and your homework as your body changes.

All of the above takes time, and we believe in allowing for this time to ensure that our patients receive the highest standard of care that we can give. Although this does mean charging a little more than others do for standard 10-15 minutes appointments, the simple fact is that we remain, minute-for-minute, the cheapest chiropractor in Belfast (and quite possibly Britain and Ireland) and we’re very proud of the service we provide.

*The cost of the average chiropractic appointment in Belfast ranges from £25-35

How much will I spend/how long will it take to “fix me”?

The research says that the average chiropractic patient responds to the care within 4-8 treatments, and in our experience this is true. We therefore say that the average number of appointments you will attend is 6, but ask you to bear in mind that

A – These visits will be spread out over 4-6 weeks so the pressure on both your time and finances is spread over a longer period

B – The timing will vary dependent on your response to treatments as every person is an individual, so we do not take any payments in advance and if your pain is resolved in 2 sessions or 4 sessions then that is all you pay for.

What about after my pain has improved, can I see my chiropractor the same way I see my dentist?

Absolutely, the goal of the advice and rehabilitation we give you is to ensure once you are out of pain you have the tools you need to take care of yourself. However, if you decide that you would like some form of ongoing care to help maintain your musculoskeletal health at as high a level as possible – be it for competing as an athlete or for the joys of wrestling with your kids – that is a service we offer. We find that many patients having seen a resolution in their pain choose to remain under chiropractic care, having check-ups anything from monthly to 3 times a year* to keep in the best shape they can!

*Mark begs Sarah to adjust him minimum twice a month, but don’t worry we recognise he’s biased towards chiropractic, being a chiropractor and all that!

Do you offer any other complimentary forms of care?

Yes! Our sister company Queens Quarter Clinic boasts a Physiotherapist, a Podiatrist and a level 3 Sports Massage therapist. We communicate regularly with our colleagues (including nipping in for wee tune ups!) so we know each other’s treatments inside and out and when necessary refer within the two clinics.

You mentioned that sometimes you don't treat on the consultation day so you can refer for other tests?

On average maybe one in fifty patients requires a referral for some kind of further testing before treatment can begin in full, these are matters of safety as some possible diagnoses contradict certain techniques we use and so full investigation in these instances are essential.

As Doctors of chiropractic we can refer directly for X-rays and MRI scans, for other investigation such as blood tests we will write you a referral letter which you can show to your GP to help move quickly through the process of getting such investigations completed.

Duane Farrell

I injured myself at the gym and Sarah was great in treating the injury. Cannot recommend her highly enough

Maureen Butler

'Sarah is my 'go-to person' to 'straighten me out'. She was recommended to me a number of years ago in an emergency. I now go regularly. Thank you, Sarah - highly recommend.

Cathy Cassidy

I highly recommend Sarah, not only for her healing hands but for her professional and caring manner. I've always left her office feeling better!

Kelly Hastie

Sarah is absolutely amazing, I really don't know where my daughter and I would be without her, she has helped both of us so much. Add to that the fact that she is such a lovely genuine person, I can't recommend her highly enough.

Lorraine Gallagher

After 18 months of lower back pain, Sarah got to the root of my problem and alleviated my pain after only 4 sessions. Sarah treated me with warmth and professionalism. Would highly recommend her!!

Neil Davis

Professional, friendly service. Sarah explained everything clearly & made me relax. Excellent!

Geoff Coulter

After a fall I suffered severe pain in both shoulders. I was unable to work and tried various physiotherapists, and other treatments, without success. From the first and subsequent visits I made progress and with her variable treatment I fully recovered. Sarah is a gifted professional to whom I am indebted.

Christine McBride

As a Dressage rider and coach it is vital for me to be in top physical condition to allow me to correctly influence my horse. I had a number of issues with my back and pelvis which Sarah pinpointed and corrected immediately. These had been issues I had previously been coping with for a number of years. I find her extremely knowledgeable, professional and genuine. I now live pain free and much healthier and knowing she is only a phone call away Is hugely reassuring, I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Brendan Gillen

Since beginning treatment at the clinic my neck and shoulders feel better than they have for years. Mark Mullan does a fantastic job - clearly explaining the reason behind each adjustment and following up with a thorough programme of stretches and exercise to ensure continued progress in between sessions. I cannot recommend Mark and the team highly enough.
