What is Chiropractic and how does it work?
Chiropractic is a straightforward method of adjusting the bones of your
body to maintain the correct alignment of your spine and to ensure that
your body’s nerve supply works efficiently. Through these subtle
adjustments, chiropractic treatment can relieve pain and discomfort,
increase mobility and provide a route to better health.
Can Chiropractic help you?
The gentle nature of the McTimoney chiropractic technique makes it especially suitable for people of all ages including young babies, pregnant women and the elderly.
What to expect from your First Treatment
Your chiropractor will first take a full case history regarding your general health background as well as details of your symptoms. This will help in assessing and analysing your particular problem. They will then thoroughly examine all the joints in your body, literally from head to toe, using only their hands and make the appropriate adjustments where necessary. McTimoney chiropractors have a very finely tuned sense of touch, developed in four years of training, which enables them to feel for misalignments of the vertebrae and bones. Upon feeling a problem, your chiropractor will use one of a number of light, swift and dextrous movements, unique to McTimoney chiropractic, to adjust the bone.
How many Sessions will you need?
The number of sessions needed varies considerably depending on:

discomfort. Regular check-ups are recommended to ensure that your body
maintains a healthy balance in all aspects of its daily functioning.
