What is Chiropractic and how can it help me?
Chiropractic is the art of gently re-aligning the bones of the spine and pelvis to achieve maximum efficiency of movement and ease in the body.
As we go about our daily lives we accumulate stress and trauma, and may adopt postures that cause compression and subtle changes to the vertebral joints, which can lead to strain and micro-trauma to the soft tissues that support these joints. Usually this is what leads to pain syndromes that we commonly feel in the lower back and neck or shoulders, but we can also get compensatory pain in knees, ankles and elbows too, all because the body isn't moving or functioning as it was designed to do.
With a little help from a chiropractor, these subtle changes can be addressed by gently manipulating the affected areas, correcting your body's alignment, releasing the build up of stress in the soft tissues and, thus, restoring health.
Chiropractors are registered with the General Chiropractic Council and follow strict standards of profiency and care for the safety of every patient. McTimoney chiropractic is the style of chiropractic studied at the McTimoney College of Chiropractic that uses swift and gentle adjustments that is suitable for every individual from 0-120 years old!

Is treatment painful?
How often will I need to attend?
You may already be in pain, perhaps have been for some time. The McTimoney technique uses low-force, swift adjustments that feel quite light and gentle. After the first treatment you may feel a little tender or stiff but this is usually short-lived.
A short course of weekly treatments is generally recommended to start with. The number varies with the individual but most people find that, after four to six weeks, they either feel considerably better or are totally free of symptoms.
