What is Chiropractic, and How Does it Work?

Chiropractic is a straight forward method of adjusting the bones of your body to improve the alignment of your skeleton, and through this process help the nervous system to work more efficiently. The purpose of chiropractic care is to realign and rebalance your body to relieve pain and discomfort, and increase mobility.

A misalignment of the joints can occur for many reasons; some of the most common are incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress, and poor posture. This can lead to pain, numbness, pins and needles, or restricted mobility.

The McTimoney method of chiropractic used in our clinic was developed by the late John McTimoney over 50 years ago. It is well known for being a precise and gentle whole body approach to chiropractic care. The gentle nature of the McTimoney method makes it especially suitable for people of all ages.
