Chiropractic the McTimoney way is a gentle whole body treatment which aims to restore correct musculoskeletal alignment and nerve function which promotes natural health
Chiropractic is a straightforward method of adjusting the bones of your body to maintain the correct alignment of your spine and to ensure tht your body’s nerve supply works efficiently. Through these subtle adjustments, chiropractic treatment can relieve pain and discomfort, increase mobility and provide a route to better health.
If any part of your spinal column becomes misaligned then a nerve may become impinged, compressed or stretched, distorting the information that passes along it. This can lead to pain, discomfort, or restricted mobility. A misalignment of the vertebrae or bones can occur for many reasons, some of the most common being incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, childbirth, falls, stress and poor posture.
McTimoney chiropractors use very gentle and swift techniques that appear to be extremely light. The key to the success of the adjustments however, is the speed, dextereity, and accuracy with which they are delivered. The actual manoeuvre happens very fast - patients feel almost nothing apart from a light contact of the chiropractor’s hands.
Patients report a wide range of improvements. These range from relief from migraines, neck and shoulder problems, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel syndrome, which are affected by the nerves coming from the top of the spine, to relief from lower back pain and sciatica which are relieved by adjustments to the lower spine. These improvements occur because the body is no longer receiving incorrect nerve information.
The gentle nature of the McTimoney chiropractic technique makes it especially suitable for people of all ages including young babies, pregnant women and the elderly.
Many years of experience have shown the McTimoney technique to be a most effective form of manipulative therapy and, indeed, over the years we have achieved consistently fine results at this centre using this technique. The gentleness of the method and its holistic approach to health that distinguishes McTimoney from other manipulative techniques and its proven effectiveness at this centre over the years form the deciding factors in our decision to offer this therapy in preference to all others.
