chiropractic help for back and neck pain at Lagos Health Clinic Algarve


We want you to feel better, which is why it's extremely important to find the underlying cause of your complaint, whether it is back, neck, shoulder, knee or extremities pain. We believe you will not find a more comprehensive consultation, diagnostic and gentle treatment service at any other chiropractic clinic in the Algarve...and our patients agree with us! See what many of them have to say here.

By the way, there's no need to get dressed up for your appointment...just wear something loose, clean and comfortable!


Here at LAGOS HEALTH CHIROPRACTIC AND WELLNESS, your first contact will probably be with our experienced Chiropractic Assistant and Receptionist, Eugènia, who will welcome you to the clinic and ask you to fill in a questionnaire regarding your general health. You will then be seen by our Principal Chiropractor, who will discuss your condition with you, run through a number of sensory and physical tests and give you your first chiropractic treatment. Like family doctors and dentists, it takes four to five years of full-time study and training to become a qualified Doctor of Chiropractic, so you can be confident that you are in competent, reliable hands and that we will suggest the most suitable treatment option for you.

Is Chiropractic Best For My Pain?

Well, chiropractors are the REAL spine specialists...we know more about your spine, joints and muscles than anyone else, including many osteopaths, physiotherapists, hospital and family doctors! People put their trust in us because we have studied for more than four years to become trained and fully qualified to gently look after you and your body.

Remember, unlike some other clinics, we will treat you on your first visit!

Your very first appointment with us is quite comprehensive and lasts about 30 minutes. During this time, we will:

  • Discuss your past medical history
  • Carry out an orthopaedic examination (testing joints, ligaments and muscles)
  • Carry out a neurological examination (testing nerves)
  • Assess your posture and gait (checking how you stand and walk)
  • Assess your range of motion (testing flexibility)

Following your assessment we will talk through what we've found, which will include:

  • The Diagnosis
  • A summary of your results (what it all means)
  • A personalised treatment plan
  • An explanation of other measures you can take (e.g. exercises, diet, etc)

You will then have your first chiropractic treatment. Please try to wear comfortable clothing when you attend the clinic, as you may be asked to change down to your underwear.


Subsequent treatment sessions last about 10 minutes and may include a range of techniques suited to each patient. You may have seen online or heard people mention the Diversified Technique, the Activator Method, Thumper or the Graston Technique...all of these are forms of manual therapy (some using small hand-held instruments) performed by chiropractors to help their patients recover. All of them can include additional combinations of gentle manipulative techniques, therapeutic massage and muscle stretches. This treatment is supported with advice on posture, work ergonomics, exercise and diet. Over time, by incorporating the treatment and all these aspects, you WILL see positive results and a reduced chance of relapse.

As you will appreciate, the overall cost of treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on many factors, including the nature of the condition, how long the complaint has been present and the patient's age, along with various lifestyle factors. Therefore, you may need only a couple of treatments to feel better, or perhaps several sessions may be needed over a period of weeks. However, the Doctor will discuss this with you during your Initial Consultation, as well as later in your treatment plan as your recovery continues.

Adult - Initial Consultation of 30 minutes - 80€

Adult - Subsequent visits of between 10 and 15 minutes - 32€

Child - Initial Consultation of 30 minutes - 60€

Child - Subsequent visits of between 10 and 15 minutes - 22€

If you haven't been to see us for a year or more, you will have to be re-assessed, as many things can affect or change your body over the course of 12 months (illnesses, accidents, etc). The cost for a re-assessment is the same as an initial consultation at 80€.

If you have never seen a chiropractor before or are in any way unsure as to whether chiropractic care will be right for you, please feel free to call us - our friendly staff will explain things to you and arrange a convenient time for you to come in and receive the best chiropractic care on the Algarve.

We are open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 6pm and on Fridays from 9am to 1pm.

To take the first step towards recovery and being pain-free, please call LAGOS HEALTH CHIROPRACTIC & WELLNESS on +351 282 768 044
