What is Chiropractic?

The spinal column is made up of 24 moveable vertebrae, plus the sacrum and the coccyx.  It houses the spinal cord through which nerve information is transmitted from the brain to the rest of the body.  When the spinal column is correctly aligned, nerve information is passed accurately. 


However, if any part of the spine becomes misaligned, then nerve function may become impaired.  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, discomfort (such as numbness or  pins and needles), or restricted mobility.


Chiropractic treatment consists of manipulative techniques known as adjustments to restore corrrect function and mobility and balance to the joints.  Numerous methods of adjustment have evolved over the years and one of them is the McTimoney method.  The McTimoney method comprises a variety of low-force techniques; the key to the success of adjustments is the speed, dexterity and accuracy with which they are performed.


Chiropractors provide care for patients of all ages, who present with a range of acute and chronic conditions and can advise about self-help, exercise and lifestyle.
