Chiropractic is a primary healthcare that focuses on the diagnoses, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and their effects on the nervous system with an emphasis on the spine and how conditions affecting these areas can affect your health and wellbeing.
Chiropractors use their hands to adjust parts of the body including spinal manipulation and other joint and soft-tissue techniques to relieve discomfort, alleviate restrictions with the aim to improve mobility and function.
The McTimoney Method of Chiropractic is a gentler and safer approach to adjusting areas of the body using a variety of techniques mainly but not exclusively through the use of high velocity thrusts, particularly a toggle recoil that is both comfortable for the patient and effective. These are very precise and fast movements which are not associated with increased load of the other chiropractic method.
We subject our bodies daily to physical and mental demands which can place unnecessary stressors causing discomfort to appear as physical ailments. Working backwards to find the root cause and not just the area of complaint is where we will begin to build a picture of how you use your body on a daily basis and to start the process of getting you back to feeling great with the added tools of stretching or exercises to help keep you functioning optimally.
A full case history will be taken, this will be a detailed description of any current complaint and general health background. An appropriate orthopaedic, postural and neurological assessment will be made. If problems requiring medical investigation referral to a GP will be made.
