Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of biomechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, with special emphasis on the spine.

It is a non-surgical, drug-free therapy to effectively improve performance, health and wellbeing.

Chiropractic treatment involves safe, gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly, to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility. It has been proven in clinical trials to be effective in relieving low back pain, and can also relieve the pain of upper back and neck problems, as well as many other conditions.
 

McTimoney Chiropractic technique uses a whole body approach and focuses on facilitating optimum movement and function of the musculosketal system. The adjustments used are high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) and therefore gentle but very precise. The treatment involves no large twisting manoeuvres of the spine or sharp rotation of the neck.

Soft tissue techniques are often incorporated into the chiropractic treatment sessions and medical acupuncture is sometimes used in conjunction if indicated and with patient consent. 

Alongside manual therapy, exercise and lifestyle advice are included where necessary.
