Relief from the discomfort and pain of joint dysfunction.
Preventing and relieving painful symptoms and conditions with effective chiropractic care.
- Improve nerve communication in the body
- Improve joint motion and coordination
- Relieve pain caused by injury or ailments
Chiropractic is a way of adjusting the bones of the body to maintain the correct alignment of the spine and to ensure that the body’s nerve supply works efficiently. If part of the spine column becomes misaligned a nerve may become compressed or stretched which may lead to pain or restricted mobility.
Through subtle adjustments chiropractic treatment can relieve pain and discomfort, increase mobility, and provide a route to better health. The main aim is to improve the alignment of the spine to free the nerves.

What will the treatment be like?
The Chiropractor will take your full case history regarding general health as well as the details of the symptoms. Some simple tests may be done to help arrive at a chiropractic diagnosis. The chiropractor will examine your joints and makes appropriate adjustments when necessary. McTimoney Chiropractics use light, low-force adjustments and check the whole body because the body will compensate for a symptom, causing other symptoms.
The Chiropractor will also advise you on good posture, the best way to lift, carry shopping, and sit at your desk or in the car.
