What is Chiropractic

Chiropractic is the health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and their effect on the nervous system.

Chiropractic is a primary health care, ‘hands on’, drug free technique which works alongside and in co-operation with conventional medicine.  It is based on sound medical evidence, explained by known biomechanical processes.  McTimoney chiropractic is well known for its whole body approach, providing a very thorough, gentle treatment that can be used on babies, pregnant ladies and the elderly.  To allow for this complete top to toe treatment, appointments are a little longer than other chiropractors, lasting 1 ½ hrs for first appointments and 1hr for follow ups.
All chiropractors by law are accredited and registered with the General Chiropractic Council, the governing body similar to the General Medical Council for doctors.

How does Chiropractic work

The framework of bones and muscles of the body can become misaligned for many reasons; some of the most common are:
  • incorrect lifting
  • car or sporting accidents
  • falls
  • stress
  • poor posture
They can all lead to pain, numbness, pins and needles, or restricted mobility.

By correcting this framework back into its correct anatomical position, joints can function better, muscles are less strained and nerves can work more efficiently.  Ergonomic stress on the body is reduced and the body ‘mechanics’ can work more efficiently again.
