Dr Knight

I am Gordon Knight, Doctor of Chiropractic (BSc (Hons), MSc and DC), from the UK. I was awarded a degree in Master of Science in Chiropractic having followed a programme of study approved by the Academic Council at the Anglo European College of Chiropractic, by Portsmouth University, in 2002. Since then, I have built up a very successful clinic in Edinburgh. I have now opened my clinic on the beautiful island of Gozo.

My aim as a healthcare professional is to provide the best quality care I can. I am committed to provide you with patient centred, evidence-based treatment in a warm, friendly environment with extended hours and emergency appointments as needed.

What to expect

Once the initial assessment and physical examination has been done, your chiropractor may require you to have further investigations such as an X-ray (or another type of scan such as CT or MRI) or a blood test. If these are required, your chiropractor will explain why they are necessary, and how and when they will be arranged.

After these assessments and tests, your chiropractor will explain what is wrong and whether your condition can be helped by chiropractic treatment. If they think chiropractic treatment will help, they will give you a care plan, which will set out what you can expect when receiving chiropractic care, the costs of care and the treatment options that are available to you. You will also be told about exercises and lifestyle changes that can help you to manage your condition and assist with your recovery.

You will be able to ask questions so that you fully understand what treatment is being proposed. If you are happy to proceed, you will be asked to give your written consent to treatment.

Your chiropractor will keep all details about your health and treatment strictly confidential.
No one will be allowed to see your records without your permission.

What is Chiropractic

Your first visit to a BCA Chiropractor

Phase 1: Relief Care

Most patients consult our office because they have an ache or a pain. Their goal? Relief. That’s our first objective.

A thorough examination reveals areas of spinal dysfunction. Then, we offer a care plan designed to give you the best results in the shortest amount of time.

Visits are frequent during this period of intensive care. Each visit builds on the ones before, so keep your appointments to get the best results.

Phase 2: Corrective Care

When you’re feeling better, you’ll have a decision to make. Will you continue with the care necessary to fully heal soft tissue? Or abandon the investment that you’ve made so far?

When you continue your care, visits are less frequent and progress will be less dramatic. If you end your care before fully healing muscles and soft tissues, you can invite a relapse. Whatever your choice, we’re here to serve and help support you in your decision.

Phase 3: Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, it is important to come in for periodic adjustments to avoid problems in the future. Usually, this only requires a quick visit to the chiropractor once a month, based on your lifestyle and goals.
