What is Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focusses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, with special emphasis on the spine. It emphasises manual therapy including spinal manipulation and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation, joint mobilisation, and includes exercises, and health and lifestyle counselling (ASA, 2017).

 What is McTimoney Chiropractic

McTimoney chiropractic is a whole body approach, it uses a gentle technique with fast, accurate and low force adjustments, this technique is therefore suitable for people of all ages, including the young, old and pregnant population. The number of treatments you might need depends on the duration of the problem and your age and fitness. You might be required to undress to your underclothes for the assessment/ treatment, gowns are available.

What do chiropractors treat?

The most common problem chiropractors are presented with is back pain. When asked what we treat, we explain that we treat the person not a particular condition. Our body has the ability to regulate itself using its innate healing capacity. Research has shown that Chiropractic care can also help with symptoms associated with the following conditions: (List of conditions sourced from the ASA website Jan 2018)?

  • Ankle sprain (short term management)
  • Cramp
  • Elbow pain and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck, but not isolated occurrences
  • Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
  • Inability to relax
