Chiropractic is a method of adjusting the bones of the body in order to improve the alignment of the skeleton. This helps the nervous system to work more efficiently, as well as realigning and rebalancing the body to relieve pain and increase mobility.
Misalignments of the joints are not always noticeable at first, but often become a problem and can cause pain, numbness, pins and needles or restricted mobility. A joint can become misaligned for a variety of reasons; for instance incorrect lifting, falls, stress, car or sporting accidents, poor posture and repetitive work.
Chiropractic can help a variety of conditions, including:
• Back, neck and shoulder pain
• Pain, discomfort and stiffness in joints
• Muscular spasms
• Sports injuries
• Arthritic pain
The McTimoney method of chiropractic is a very precise, whole body approach to chiropractic care. The adjustments used are very fast, yet gentle, making them suitable to be used on people and animals of all ages. It works to treat the whole body, not just the area that causes you pain, thereby getting to the cause of the problem and not just treating the symptoms.
